State Statute 81.01 requires the Town Board to be responsible for the care and supervision of all highways in the Town. It also allows the board to appoint a superintendent of Town roads, or instead provide for all the duties and responsibilities of the superintendent laid out in the State Statute. The Town Board has chosen to appoint a Roads Supervisor and establish a Town Roads Committee to assist it in executing its statutory duties. The committee consists of the Roads Supervisor, another town board supervisor, and a citizen member, each serving a 2-year term. Among its duties is an annual tour and assessment of all town roads during which a WisDOT established PASER condition rating is assigned as well as documentation of other conditions and problems. This data is then entered into the WisDOT WISLR computer-assisted budgeting tool which creates a 5-year expenditure plan to assist the Town Board in allocating funds to crack-fill, seal-coat, overlay or replace roads. The Roads Supervisor ensures that Town road mileage on the WisDOT map is correct as well as annually submits to WisDOT a listing or work performed on Town roads. The committee also advises on the utilization of County Matching Aids.
