Plowing Snow Across Roadways
The Laketown Township Board would like to remind you that it is against the law to deposit snow in any fashion onto or across a public roadway.

Minnesota Statute 160.2715 prohibits the plowing, blowing, shoveling or otherwise placing of snow from sidewalks, driveways and parking lots onto or across public roads into the right-of-way ( in general 33 feet from the center of the road).

Snow dumped, plowed or shoveled onto a road or road right-of-way can create a hazard for both motorists and snowplows.  Snowplows have been damaged by hitting compacted snow.  Please ensure that snow from your property or equipment is not pushed or dumped onto the right-of-way.  You can be fined for leaving snow on a township road or right-of-way.
