THE ABCs OF TOWN GOVERNMENT

AUGUST, 2022, #21 BOARD POWERS AND DUTIES, CONTINUED

 

Back in the June posting, I summarized the general powers and duties of the town board as provided in Wis. Statute, Chapter 60. I omitted two responsibilities thinking them important enough to address separately: fire protection and ambulance service.  Wis.Stat. 60.55(1) states; "The town board must provide for fire protection for the town. Fire protection may be provided by a number of different methods..." Our town has elected to provide protection as outlined in Chapter 60, sec. 60.553, "Creating a combined protective services department."  The town is one of four municipalities (Town of Buffalo, Town of Cross, Town of Milton, and Fountain City) that forms the Ft City Fire Protection Association, an entity that is part of the Ft City Public Safety Department. The town budgets each year to provide 25% of the association costs related to equipment, staff, housing, and maintenance and in turn receives fire protection for town residents.  The assocuation has an oversight board consisting of the chairperson or mayor from each of the four muncipalities. Next month ambulance services.
