By the way, I drove on a county road (tar) the other day - a road grator must have gone perpendicular to the Cty Road - clearing the gravel road. As a result pushed a large pile of snow and created a barrier across the tar/county road. I've seen this several times this winter/spring. Just saying that this may be a bigger issue to discuss here too.

Right, so private folks maintain public property. Public employees can put snow on private property but private people can't put it on public property. And the public employees are bemoaning how private folks are maintaining this public area... Okay, overgeneralized that... my main question remains - how big of a deal is this? Have there been any accidents or safey incidents resulting from this?

I believe that the County and City are control of the property to the right away line, so while you maintain the grass, you don't own that area.

Is it ok for the city to dump the salted sanded snow on my property when it could be hauled away? Every year we have to deal with dead grass and sand in the lawn which needs to be raked before we can mow!

How big a deal is it to push snow across the road? From what I've seen, most folks are good about cleaning up what they've done. I've never seen it be a danger to drivers. Is this just an annoyance, or a real issue? The plows get to plug my driveway with snow from the roads. What's next, should we expect that snow can only go on public property? Or maybe we need to melt it to remove it?
