Model Snow and Ice Policies
Minnesota developed policy language for municipalities and others that hire contractors for their winter maintenance services. These provide a tool to help cities and counties prepare clear and complete snow and ice management policies and to help them limit the potential liability risk from these activities. Snow and ice management requires balancing public interests including, as paramount, public safety but also equipment and material cost, environmental impact, and other concerns. The WI Salt Wise Partnership is continually adding sample policies and invites both municipalities and businesses to share their policies to include on this web page. To share your snow and ice policy, please email us.
