Winnebago County Planning and Zoning assigns house numbers. The Town provides residents with uniform numbers that Town and County ordinances require be used.
You are allowed to have additional numbers, i.e. stone on your home, however the uniform numbers provided by the Town must be displayed.
If you do not currently have these numbers, you may contact the Town Clerk to receive a set at cost.
This ordinance is for your protection, so that emergency vehicles can locate your home quickly when time may be a matter of life and death.
Although there is no permit required to blacktop or pave a driveway, you must blacktop or pave according to the Town ordinance. The Town is not liable for any damage to or restoration of any driveway during maintenance of a culvert or ditch. If we need to remove the driveway to maintain the culvert the property owner will be billed. There shall be no obstructions located in the road right-of-way other than those specifically authorized by the Town Board. Further, there shall be nothing located in the road right-of-way that would impede the maintenance or the plowing of any road or that could cause damage to any equipment used for the purpose of maintenance or plowing of any road.
No crossing through ditches is allowed except where a driveway with a culvert has been installed. This ordinance exists to reduce the destruction of drainage ditches. It is very costly to continually repair ditches that have been driven through and rutted up. This ordinance will be strictly enforced. Violation of this ordinance will result in the violator being billed for the cost of repairs.
Town ordinance prohibits the accumulation and storage, outside any building located within the Town, of unlicensed motor vehicles for a period of more than 30 days.
