Winter Sump Pump Request for Foley Residents
To avoid creating ice hazards for pedestrians and motorists, residents are requested to move sump pump discharge hoses away from sidewalks and roadways to the edge of road right-of-way, so water drains onto your lawn or yard.
The City of Foley Code of Ordinances Section 1100 defines a public nuisance as anything that endangers the public safety. This includes anything that interferes with, obstructs, or renders dangerous for passage, any public highway or right-of-way, or waters used by the public.
For more information, please contact Foley City Hall at 320-968-7260.
