Clay County Snow Removal and Ice Control Policy

Clay County would like to remind everyone, including commercial snow removal operators, that it is against state law to deposit snow onto a public roadway. Dumping or plowing snow onto a roadway can create slippery areas, frozen ruts, potential snow drift problem areas or bumps, which could contribute to motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents.

Minnesota Statute 160.27 and many local ordinances prohibit the plowing, blowing, shoveling or otherwise placing of snow from sidewalks, driveways and parking lots onto public roadways. This includes ditches, roadsides and boulevards. The public is cautioned that violations are misdemeanors and civil liability can extend to both the property owner and the person or company who placed the snow improperly.

Clay County’s Snow & Ice Control Policy is available below in the Portable Document Format (PDF).  To view and print PDF files, you need the free Adobe® Acrobat® Reader software.
