City Of Lanesboro Snow/Ice Removal

Fri, Nov 22nd, 2013
Posted in All Legals

The City of Lanesboro would like to remind its residents that as the winter season approaches, the provisions of the City’s snow plowing/ice removal policy were put into effect starting November 1st, 2013. Please pay particular attention to the following provisions as they will greatly assist City personnel in completing their tasks and will minimize the liability to residents and business owners and those who patronize local businesses in the downtown area:

The City will institute a No Parking Zone in the downtown area. This area will be marked No Parking from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. from November 1st to April 1st of each year. The purpose of this zone is to allow Street Department personnel to clear the area prior to the usual heavy traffic. Violators of this policy face the potential of being ticketed and/or towed.


The City will maintain some of the sidewalks in town, especially on Parkway Avenue, from the Sons of Norway building to the school. As there are a limited number of City personnel available, the City will maintain these sidewalks after the streets have been plowed. Residents are reminded that according to Section 620:05 of the Lanesboro City Ordinance snow and ice must be cleared from the sidewalks within 12 hours. In the event that snow and/or ice are not removed within 12 hours, the Street Superintendent will direct the removal of the snow/ice from these sidewalks and the home/business owner will be billed or assessed for the cost of removal. Independent contractors may be hired by the City to clean these sidewalks instead of City personnel.

Should you have any questions regarding this ordinance or general questions regarding snow and ice removal, please contact the City Office at 507-467-3722 or by e-mail at The City appreciates your support during the busy winter season.

City Clerk
