THE ABCs OF TOWN GOVERNMENT

NOVEMBER, 2022, #24 BOARD POWERS AND DUTIES(VILLAGE POWERS)

Town governments in Wisconsin are considered statutory bodies, meaning they only have powers that are specifically granted by statute. There is, however, a way that the town board's authority can be broadened through adoption of village powers. Village powers do not change the town's status to that of a village, but it does allow the board to excercise greater flexibility to govern under both constitutional and statutory "home rule" powers.  A board with village powers has general authority to "act for the government and good order of the village, for its commercial benefit and for the health, safety, welfare and convenience of the public." (Wis.Stat.61.34(1)) An example of this is a town with village powers could enact a public nuisance ordinance whereas a town board alone would not have authority to adopt such a regulation. In April, 2014, Town of Buffalo electors granted the town board village powers by approving resolution 04-2014-31 as per Wis.Stat.60.10(2)(c).
