If the snow is not removed the property owner will be referred to the Sheriff’s department for violation of the state law: Wisconsin state statute 346.94(5) “No person may place or cause to be placed upon any highway any substance that is or may be injurious to any vehicle. “ And 346.95(3) “Any person violating 346.94(5) shall be required to forfeit $50 for each offense.”
Also, Wisconsin state statute 86.022 makes it a misdemeanor punishable by fine to place any obstruction in a road ditch. Compacted snow that will not allow drainage is considered an obstruction.
