THE ABCs OF TOWN GOVERNMENT

OCTOBER, 2022, #23 BOARD POWERS AND DUTIES, CONTINUED

In recent posts, I have noted the powers and duties for a town board that relate directly to essential public safety issues, namely;  fire protection and ambulance/emergency services. An additional service as found in Wis.Statutes Chapter 60, is law enforcement. By statute, law enforcement in a Wisconsin town may be provided by a town constable, the sheriff's department or police officers (or combination of these.)  Primary law enforcement in the Town of Buffalo is provided by the Buffalo County Sheriff Department. The town does have an elected constable who has citation authority but not arrest power. In addition, town supervisors are authorized to issue citations for violations of town ordinances( illegal parking) but do not have power of arrest and cannot enforce traffic laws (speeding.) Our town has a positive working relationship with the BC Sheriff Dept. and we appreciate their service to our citizens especially given limited resources (personnel) to meet the needs of a very large county.

Occasionaly, there is an issue or announcement related to town business that seems to rise to the need to make contact with as many citizens as possible. One timely way to do this is through email contact.
