The City of Manitowoc Public Infrastructure Department provides multiple services. Snow plowing and removal is one of the most visible and important operations performed. The City of Manitowoc has approximately 380 lane miles of road for which we are responsible. We also have several municipal parking lots and sidewalks in the business district and at each of the city buildings that we clean in conjunction with the Parks Department. Because of this it is important that we have standards and procedures so that there are reasonable and realistic expectations of our abilities. The City of Manitowoc will strive to maintain safe conditions for drivers observing winter driving conditions. However, this is not an absolute “bare pavement” policy.
