LA CROSSE, Wis. -

It’s time to clean up after our first big snowfall of the season.

In La Crosse, property owners have to clear sidewalks within 24 hours of the snow stopping.

You’re not allowed to blow or shovel snow into the street. The city asks that you pile the snow onto the boulevards instead.

If you do not clear your sidewalk in time, a city crew will do it for you and you will be billed on your next tax statement.

The cost is $2.50 per foot of snow plus a mandatory $50 administration fee. You can also be fined $75- $100 plus processing costs.
