  6. The Plan Commission Report was given by Supervisor Bob Long. The Comprehensive Plan for the Plan Commission is up to date until 2026, this is an every year ten year process to review any changes within the community. This has been a quiet year for building besides the updating of the PC Book.

This year we under-spent the budget a bit so hopefully we can spend a little more next year.
  9. New Business; ATV/UTV Ordinance has been put on hold by Dodge County they are looking into the State Ordinance. To date there are 4-5 Townships that have written their own Ordinance, they do have to inforce their own Ordinances. So we have just put everything on hold until more information is gathered. And we would want to have some input by the TO-Shields residents.
  10. Miscellaneous; Some residents have been asking about curbside pick-up in township. The clerk gathered some information and Supervisor Johnson put together the numbers.

ATV/UTV Notice

Dear Township Resident,
Members of the Quad Country Runners ATV/UTV Club have petitioned the Shields Town Board to pass an ordinance to allow the usage of ATV/UTV vehicles on some town roads. The roads being requested are: Garden Rd, Long Rd, Provimi Rd, Quarry Rd, Rich Rd, Walton Rd, Middle Rd, Barry Rd. They are also requesting the Dodge County Board to allow Hwy QQ. Currently, it is illegal to run these vehicles on town or county roads. However per state statutes, the Town Board does have authority to allow via ordinance. As this will have direct impact upon the residents of the Town of Shields, the Board is very interested in your input. We will place this on the April 9, 2018 Town Board Monthly Meeting agenda, 7pm at the Emmet Town Hall. We will listen to public input, or correspondence may be directed to clerk.townofshields@yahoo.com, or mailed to the Town of Shields at N1662 Wood Road, Watertown, WI 53098.
