The Town of LaFollette elected officials and staff are dedicated to serving our community. We maintain the town's roads as well as remove snow to help ensure the safety of our residents and visitors.
The town is responsible for routine maintenance on our 44 miles of road. On a rotational basis, we will be resurfacing town roads. The 2023 schedule will be posted after the first of the year.
The town is responsible for 44 miles of township roads. The roads will be plowed as soon after the snow storm has ended as safely possible. If conditions permit, we will begin snow removal before the storm ends. To ensure the safety of our road maintenance personnel and our equipment, snow removal will be done during daylight hours. Should an emergency arise, please call 911, explain your situation, and we will be contacted by the county dispatcher to assist with removal during the emergency.
The town no longer offers snow removal services for private driveways, lanes or roads. Please contact a local snow removal service to clear your property.
The Town of LaFollette is responsible for maintaining not just the roadway but also the Right-of-Way (Wis. Stat. 82.03 and 893.83). Most town roads have a 66 foot easement (i.e., 33 feet from the center line of the road on both sides of the road). Most town roads are 20 feet wide with a 2 foot shoulder on each side. The town is responsible ensuring the remainder of the Right-of-Way is clear of trees, brush and will mow the grass.
We have undertaken the maintenance of the Right-of-Way for the town's roads, including mowing the grass, brush and tree limb removal and where necessary tree removal. Prior to removing trees, the town will contact the property owner informing them of which trees will be removed and to obtain the disposition of any lumber resulting from the tree removal process.
