Town of Delavan
The Delavan Town Board wishes to remind town residents that all town roadways are 66 feet wide. Any crops planted within this 66-foot span will be mowed as part of normal roadway maintenance.
No person shall, within the limits of any public highway, plow, cultivate or otherwise work any lands in such manner as to interfere with or obstruct the drainage in any public highway ditch, nor shall any person operate any farm or other machinery on, over, along or across any public highway in such manner as to materially damage the said highway. § 86.021(1). Adequate drainage, good road condition and good visibility are all essential to the safety of highway users.
Any property owners who are in doubt about the exact roadway boundaries may contact Public Works Manager Tom Thiele, at the Town Hwy Department, 728-6411, for assistance.
