PUSHING SNOW ON THE ROAD

Wisconsin Statute 346.94(5) prohibits anyone from placing or causing to be placed upon a highway any foreign substance which is or may be injurious to any vehicle. This prohibits anyone from plowing, shoveling, or blowing snow onto a road. The penalty for violating this statute is $50 for each offense.

Additionally, section 86.022 makes it a misdemeanor punishable by fine to place any obstruction in a road ditch which will impede drainage. As such, individuals should not be filling ditches with compacted snow.

Municipalities may request that the sheriff’s department cite individuals for these violations of state law.

We appreciate your cooperation.


TRASH/RECYCLING CHANGE IN SERVICE

At the end of last year, the Town was notified that Waste Management acquired Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. (together with its affiliates and subsidiaries, “ADS”) by acquiring all of ADS’s issued and outstanding shares of stock. ADS has now been merged with and into a Waste Management subsidiary. We were told that nothing changes for our community and over time the trash and recycling bins would be rebranded with Waste Management logos. Unfortunately this transition has not gone as smoothly as planned. New drivers had to learn our roads, routes and schedule, scheduled pick up of Christmas Trees was changed without advance warning and some bins are being replaced or picked up without replacement. We have been fielding your calls, trying to get a response in a timely matter. We do understand your frustration but the town had nothing to do with this change. We hope this service will return to normal without so many issues. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please call (608) 807-3240 to speak with a representative.


BRUSH SITE CLOSED

Although the brush site is closed for the season, the key is still available in the office during the week during office normal office hours of 8AM-4PM.
