I just read a great article in The Municipality magazine by Attorney Claire Silverman which discusses the major issues that municipalities face in winter (well, maybe not Miami). It’s available online at the League of Wisconsin Municipality’s website. Attorney Silverman is Legal Council for the League.
Each topic stands on its own and cites the appropriate statutes and case law, so this should serve as a good reference work if you need to deal with one of the following topics:
- Removal of Snow and Ice from Public Ways
- Salt Storage Requirements
- Winter Parking; Snow Emergencies
- Snowmobile Regulation
- Utility Disconnections
- Municipal Holiday Decorations
