The South Milwaukee Municipal Code requires that public sidewalks and adjoining crosswalks be cleared of snow and ice within 24 hours after the snow has ceased to fall or accumulate. Failure to comply authorizes the City to have such work performed and to bill the property owner for this service. To report properties where snow and ice haven’t been removed, please call the Police Department non-emergency line at 414-768-8060.

Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
