Snow Plowing/Snow Blowing Reminder!

It is illegal under Michigan law to shovel or plow snow or ice onto any road or highway. Pushing snow from a driveway or parking lot onto a road, or depositing snow in a way that blocks driver's vision is specifically prohibited in Michigan code. Please help our DPW keep our streets clear! More information.
