SNOW REMOVAL REMINDERS

Please shovel out the area around your mailbox and mark your mailbox so the snowplow drivers can clearly see it and avoid damaging the mailbox. Please note that it is improper and against State of Wisconsin highway regulations to remove snow from your driveway and push it across the road. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

HOUSE NUMBER REPLACEMENT

The Town replaced all the house numbers with improved signage that will make it easier to see the house numbers as you are driving the local roads. Property owners shall be responsible for the signage. In the event the signage is damaged or removed, the cost of replacement shall be borne by the property owner. The property owner shall be billed for such replacement or repair by the Town of Wayne, and shall be subject to special assessment for unpaid balances. The signs shall be displayed in such a manner as to provide immediate recognition to emergency and medical personnel, namely installed as follows: Within the road right of way (ROW), ten (10) to twenty (20) feet to the right of the driveway proper and the face of the number sign to be approximately three (3) to four (4) feet above the ground elevation at its center point. In the event the above location cannot be used, the Town Board of the Town of Wayne or its designee shall determine the proper location. If you have a problem with the location of the sign, contact a town board member.

 

HELP MAINTAIN THE RURAL CHARACTER OF THE TOWN OF WAYNE

The essence of the rural character of our town is the local farmer who works the land. Please respect the farmer’s right to farm. Don’t tailgate farm machinery on the roadways. Manure is part of livestock farming. Sometimes farmers operate their equipment late at night to plant or harvest crops, respect their industriousness and hard work.

 

 

DRIVEWAYS

If you want to create a new lot, you must provide access to a public road from the lot. If you want to access a town road, contact the Culvert Inspector, Kieth Kriewaldt, 262-629-9199 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 262-629-9199 end_of_the_skype_highlighting. If you want to access a county or state road, contact Washington County Highway Department 262-335-4435 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 262-335-4435 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

If you want to build or improve a driveway that connects to a town road, you must contact the culvert inspector to obtain a permit. There is a fee for the safe driveway location inspection. If a culvert is required there is a culvert permit fee and you must post a culvert bond which will be returned to you after the final inspection of the culvert. The Culvert Inspector may request bonding or engineering of projects. The Town Attorney shall prepare the bonding agreement at the expense of the permit applicant; the fees for engineering and review of same shall be borne by the permit applicant. Such bonding or engineering requests may be reviewed by the Town Board.

 

ROAD RIGHT OF WAY

The road right of way usually extends 33 feet in each direction from the centerline of the road. The municipality has access and responsibility for maintenance in the road right of way. The municipality will remove any objects in the right of way. Please do not place stones or other items in the road right of way above the plane of the road surface. Items above the plane of the road surface in the right of way creates a hazard for snow plowing and may damage the equipment and/or cause injury to the drivers. Farmers should not plant crops in the road right of way. Public roads should be accessed only by means of approved driveways and field entrances. If you damage the road or right of way by accessing a town road by means other than an approved driveway or field entrance you are liable for the cost of repair.

 

FIELD ENTRANCES

The Town of Wayne Town Board wants to remind farmers to use the designated field entrances. They are made for tractors and other heavy equipment to enter and exit the road. Any damage found to roadways due to not using field entrances will be charged back to the owner in the amount to fix the roadway.

MAILBOX POLICY: WASHINGTON COUNTY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT

* Massive supports such as telephone poles, heavy metal posts, concrete posts, antique farm equipment, or other similar items are prohibited. Any support must be designed so that if it is struck, it will bend or fall away from the striking vehicle to prevent severe damage to the vehicle or injury to the traveling public. If possible, all newspaper tubes and mailboxes shall be placed on the same post to avoid unnecessary posts.

* Nothing shall be attached to the mailbox, newspaper tube, or its support.

* Use of a semi-arch or extended arm-type support which allows snowplows to sweep near or under mailboxes without damaging supports is recommended.

* When newspaper tubes are used other than those provided by the newspaper, the Highway Commissioner shall have the exclusive authority to approve the newspaper tube.

* The Washington County Highway Department will repair or replace mailboxes that are physically struck by a county highway department truck, standard size and design boxes will be used. We will not repair mailboxes damaged by snow.

* Please see Washington County Code, Chapter 12.04

* Mailboxes should be mounted at a height of 41 to 45 inches from the road surface to the bottom of the mailbox or point of mail entry.

* Mailboxes should be set back 6 to 8 inches from the front face of the curb or edge of the shoulder to the mailbox door.

 

WI-FI

Wi-Fi is now available in the Town of Wayne.

WIRELESS COMMUNICATION FACILITIES

In response to consumer demand for wireless communication services and requirements of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), wireless communications providers wish to establish their systems as quickly and efficiently as possible. This will result in more antennas and towers across the visual landscape. In order to provide for appropriate location and network development, to minimize adverse visual effects through careful design, sitting, co-location of providers and screening, and to maximize public safety, specific sites for wireless communication facilities may be granted by conditional use permit. If a wireless communication provider contacts you to request to install an antenna on your property, please direct them to the town board to obtain a conditional use permit for the installation of the equipment.
