Town News & Notices

Town Snow Removal & Winter Maintenance Policy

btn-snowandicecontrolDuring this time of year, the Town often receives feedback from residents regarding our local road snow and ice control efforts.  Often feedback from one resident conflicts with that of another.  For example, one individual may inform us that the services provided are too much (wasting taxpayer money).  Whereas another resident informs Town officials that the services were not enough. Regardless, of the concern, they are both based on the perceived efficiency and effectiveness of Town services.

The Town of Buchanan contracts with Outagamie County Highway Department to plow local Town roads. In an effort to be efficient and effective with Town resources (funds), the Town Board has adopted the following Snow Removal and Winter Maintenance Policy. The purpose of this policy is to assist the Town and contractors in establishing priorities and guidance to ensure winter maintenance duties are performed in a responsible and timely manner. The County Highway crew performs snow removal and ice control efforts based on this policy. For more information,or questions related to the Town's snow removal policy, please contact the Administrator/Clerk at (920) 734-8599 or by email at: clerk@townofbuchanan.org.
