Roads Report:

  • Cloverleaf and Winchester Road sign is missing.
  • Reminder – No snow should be plowed across or placed on roadways at any time.  The practice of leaving piles of snow on public highways after plowing private driveways or parking lots creates a hazard for the traveling public and creates a problem for our road plowing operation.  Per Wisconsin Statues 346.94(5), it is illegal for persons to leave deposits of any materials on highways.
  • Road bids will be published in March.


Supervisor Laabs made a motion to approve minutes of the January meetings, seconded by Supervisor Degal, motion carried.
