Just move to Upper Albany subdivision in NE Franklin County. Pay $4100 year in property taxes and never have a Columbus city plow hit your streets (yes, it is an area of Columbus not New Albany). Hell, you can push as much snow as you like and never get caught!

Its a crime that idiots post stupid comments. Residents complain about anything, why? Because they can. Your Village/Town/City hire people or buy their own plows to plow your streets, this is not required by law to do, its a service your community does for you.
But the min your community wants try to protect their investments and not break them,(which in turn would then waste taxpayer dollars to get the items repaired) the residents get mad because they have to go outside and do some work.
What if your streets never got plowed? Would you complain then? Ya i bet you would. So either way your going to complain. So the stupidity is on your parts.

I can't believe governments sit around and think this kind of crap up. Come on, how many people really throw their snow into the street? Whoever dreams crap like this up should be banned from lawmaking. I don't approve people throwing thier snow in the street, but sometimes it probably can't be helped.

It wouldn't be Ohio unless there was a law against snow shovelling.

Will the City of Stow be fined everytime a snow plow.....plows snow into your driveway? Most of the snow in my driveway comes from the street plows.

I shoveled yesterday and will take the snow blower to get the rest into the street today! How are they going to catch me when they never come around?

I agree with the snow ban. My neighbors (or the private plowers they hire) push big mounds of snow out into the street constanly. This makes it difficult to drive the streets even after the plows have come through. I see no reason for them to not pile it on the side of their driveway. Pushing the snow into the street just makes more to be plowed and shoved at the end of our driveways making it even more difficult to get out. You don't want the ban? Be curtious and keep it into your own yard. Would you blow your leaves into the street?

Remember when its cold and snowy fewer people get out and revenue for the city goes down for traffic violations and sales taxes, so this is a new way for the city to boost its revenue levels. They may as well call it the winter tax and assess it to every resident the first day of winter - all of these laws - are about putting more money in the coffers and the tax payer will continue to see less and less benefit for their dollars - government is about money not people.

This is in resopnse to some of the posts to this story.
The only reason I can see for pushing your snow into the streets is simply the fact that it looks better and its less snow in your way. Come on people get off your high horse and deal with the snow like the rest of us. I shovel every snow storm and don't need to put it in the streets... yes, it piles up on the sides of the driveway and the plows push it up to the end of the driveway. So what? It's better than driving down the street and getting stuck in someone else's pile that they left in the street because they were too vain to have it sit on the side of their driveway. I guess it doesn't look perfect so the snow has to go somewhere, anywhere but on their property or in their way.

If you don't push your snow into the street then why should this ban bother you?

I would blow leaves into your yard if it keeps them out of mine.

What about fining the city for blowing the roads into your driveway trapping you in?

So first you say they work hard, then you question how hard it can be? Tell ya what, try it for a while and let us know one way or the other.

Lexington, Ohio already has this ordinance in effect. It is not enforced anymore than the other ridiculous ordinances they have passed like a fine for your yard light being out. This snow ordinance doesn't stop people from moving snow into the streets and it certainly doesn't stop the city from plowing the snow into people's yards or onto the sidewalks. It's just one more attempt for government to control every step of a person's life. They should spend more time policing their own activities.
