Snow Plowing Operations

As part of living here in Wisconsin, we all have to put up with snow plowing operations. Watch for snow emergency situations that require extra caution. Part of this inconvenience is plow damage in those subdivisions that have concrete curbing. In the Fall, we assign the drivers to go through their areas and install plow markers along the road edge to help prevent this from occurring. Unfortunately, it isn’t always 100% effective. (It is a good idea to have sprinkler heads visible so drivers will not damage your irrigation system when installing plow markers).

Snow Plowing Concerns

If you notice your grass has been damaged or you have salt damage, call or email (snowdamagereporting@newberlin.org) and we will add your information to the plow damage list for Spring repairs. The Streets Division will return when weather permits and clean up the area, install topsoil, seed, and cover the area with straw. We ask the resident to make sure the seed is watered regularly to ensure proper seed growth. 

Please also call, use the snow plowing concerns form, or email our office (snowdamagereporting@newberlin.org).
