A big pile of snow is dumped in front of my house by the town. It seems like snow dump instead of snow removal. What can I do? I know there are ordinances and laws the town needs to follow for snow removal. I am unable to park my cars on the street next to my house due to this. Also it blocks the road when i get out of my driveway. I would like the town to haul it away. The town says there is no other place to dump the snow. If I want it to be hauled away they can asses a special tax for it. I need to speak to few lawyers to understand what can be done about it. I am paying my taxes for snow removal and not for snow dump in front of my house. I should assess a tax on town to dump snow in front of my house
You will have a difficult time trying to make the town pay you for your inconvenience. This is an emergency situation, and the municipality has broad rights to deal with the situation, including inconveniencing some residents for the good of the community.
Your idea of assessing the town a fine or tax is, I hope, not serious. It is not realistic.
