Winter Regulations & Reminders!
Posted: November 7, 2019
- School bus routes and hills are always given first priority with plowing operations. The Town of Washington does not allow parking on roads during and 24 hours after a snowfall. In the event of a snow emergency there is no parking on roads for at least 48 hours. We encourage you to check our website for updates. Violators will be ticketed by the Eau Claire County Sheriff's Department. Vehicles that present an obstruction and are not removed will be towed.
- Depositing snow back onto the roadway or across the road when plowing your driveway or parking lot is not only a hazard - it is illegal.
- Sidewalks must be cleared of snow and/or ice within 24 hours from the time snow ceases to accumulate.
- Garbage and recycling bins are only allowed at the edge of your yard or driveway on your collection day and need to be recessed a minimum of ten feet from the edge of the blacktop road.
