YOU HAVE UNTIL THURSDAY, APRIL 2 TO REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT TO BE SENT TO YOU.

If you are voting in person on that day, please understand that we will be limiting the number of voters in the building at one time and that you may have to wait in line outside before your turn to vote for your safety and the safety of our poll workers.
NOTE: Every voter that wants to vote absentee must make that request. You may not pick up ballots to take home for yourself or for anyone else.

SNOW PLOW SAFETY
- Keep a safe distance (200′ minimum) so the driver can see you
- If you can’t see the plow’s mirrors, the plow driver can’t see you!
- Keep personal property such as trailers, vehicles, snowmobiles, etc., off of the right of way (33′ from the center of the road)
- Do NOT plow snow from your driveway on to or over the road as this practice is prohibited by Wisconsin Statutes 86.01 & 346.94.
- Keep refuse and recycling carts off the pavement by at least 3′
- The Town will replace your mailbox/post if it is hit by the plow and was in good condition. The Town will not replace mailboxes and/or posts that were in need of repair prior to being hit.
- Keep brush and wood piles at least 9′ from the pavement to accommodate plowing
- Please be patient! Operating two trucks, our crew plows 34+ miles of road and clears over 50 intersections.
- More details can be found in the Town’s Winter Road Maintenance Policy.
