Kalmar Township Snow Policy
Notice is hereby given to the residents of Kalmar Township, County of Olmsted, and State of Minnesota, that it is against Minnesota State Law (Statue 160.27 subdivision 5) to place or deposit snow or ice in the township road right-of-way. This road right-of-way extends 33 feet from the road center line to each side. The law also considers it littering to place snow or ice in a right-of-way, which is punishable as a misdemeanor (Minnesota Statue 169.42, subdivision. 1 & 5).
If an owner or occupant continually violates these prohibitions, in addition to the cost recovery procedures the legislature made available in Minn. Stat. § 366.016, the board can also consider contacting the sheriff's department for possible action under the criminal statutes.
