A 22-year-old Port Washington woman who was clearing the sidewalk at a relative’s home was cited for disorderly conduct after she shoveled snow into a car parked nearby, according to Port Washington police.

    The incident, which police said was captured on videotape by a neighbor, occurred in the 500 block of North Webster Street about 2:40 p.m. Feb. 28.

    The woman shoveled the snow into the vehicle through a broken window that had been taped over, police said. She moved the tape over in order to place the snow in the vehicle.

    The woman, who also shoveled snow onto the vehicle, had an ongoing dispute with a neighbor over shoveling, police said.

    The incident was one of seven snow-related calls police received in the wake of last week’s snowstorm.

    • On Feb. 28, police received a report that a sidewalk in the 400 block of Barry Avenue was unshoveled. When officers notified the owners that sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after a snowfall, they said they would take care of it, police said.

    • That same day, there was a complaint of a snow-covered sidewalk in the 700 block of North Wisconsin Street. The property is in foreclosure, so city crews were expected to clear the walkway, according to police.

    The city’s cost will be placed on the property tax bills, authorities said.

    • On March 1, there was a complaint that a sidewalk in the 200 block of North Spring Street was not cleared. A notice was left at the home, police said.

    • That same day, there was complaint that a plowing contractor pushed snow across the 500 block of Chestnut Street onto the city’s right of way, but officers could not find the culprit, police said.

    • On March 2, there were two complaints of unshoveled walkways — one in the 700 block of North Wisconsin Street and the other at the former Clark gas station on Grand Avenue. The owners were notified in both cases, police said.

    In other news, police were called to Port Washington High School about 9:20 a.m. March 1 for a 17-year-old Saukville youth who officials believed was intoxicated.badge

    The student was sleeping in class and unsteady on his feet and, although he said he had not been drinking, a preliminary breath test revealed he had a blood-alcohol content of .07, police said.

    The student was cited for underage consumption of alcohol.

    A 42-year-old man doing construction work at 320 N. Franklin St. about 11 p.m. Feb. 26 was warned after neighbors complained about the noise, police said.

    It was the second time in recent months that neighbors have lodged this type off complaint, police said.
