Driveway Standards for Emergency Vehicles

Please see this important notice from the Mount Horeb Area Joint Fire Department regarding the width, weight and clearance necessary to accommodate emergency vehicles such as fire and EMS apparatus.

Mailbox Policy

All new mailboxes should be set back 18” face to road edge. The town would provide gravel to make a path for the mailman to get to the box. Present boxes would be grandfathered but if replaced should comply with this rule.

Dennis also reported that when the plow hits a mailbox, not the snow coming off the plow, the township should pay for it, perhaps a limited amount. Dan Peterson moved that if the plow hits the mailbox the town should pay for it up to $30. D C Harned seconded. Motion passed unanimously. (From the 2007 Annual Meeting)
