Camden Township Policies
If you have questions about policies or any other township business, contact the clerk.
Camden Township reminds everyone that it is against the law to deposit snow in any fashion onto or across a public roadway. Minnesota Statute 160.2715 prohibits the plowing, blowing, shoveling or otherwise placing of snow from sidewalks, driveways and parking lots onto or across public roads. Read more on our snow removal policy below.
Hay or Grass on Roads
It is illegal to place hay or grass clippings on a road per state statute 609.74. It can be a safety problem for vehicles and it causes problems for grading the roads. The Township will remove hay or grass clippings as needed and bill the land owner for the cost of removal.
Dust Control needs to be prepaid. Measure how many feet of your road you want covered with Dust Control. The cost is $.65 per foot. Make checks out to Camden Township and send to: Camden Township 315 State Avenue South New Germany, MN 55367
