Middleton ordinances require that the owner, occupant or person in charge of each building, structure or unoccupied lot in the City fronting or abutting a street shall remove snow and ice from the sidewalk, including handicap ramps adjacent to such building, structure or unoccupied lot as well as from any fire hydrant upon or directly adjacent to the property to a point no higher than four (4) inches below the lowest outlet hydrant cap.
The snow and/or ice must be removed from the entire width of the sidewalk and handicap ramps and from fire hydrants.
No accumulation of snow or ice may be permitted to remain for longer than 24 hours regardless of the source of the snow or ice. If ice cannot be removed immediately, it shall be sprinkled with salt, sand or combination thereof until it can be removed. You can also help by shoveling out your mailbox and areas for your trash and recycling carts.
It is unlawful to plow, shovel or throw snow into the street.
