Town off Chase, Wisconsin By Nick SieVert

Looking at the town of Chase.
Address- 8481 County Road S Pulaski, WI 54162
The issue I choose was about weight limit permit requirements, and restrictions. The town of Chase is setting some new standards on permits and limits. If they were to make the limit lighter it would hurt farmers because of the heavy loads they haul on them. I do not agree with stricter rules on weight limits on roads. When a road starts to break and crack its not all from heavy loads on it. This stuff may happen from the road being old, and not re-paved in awhile. I am also wondering what is the point in a over sized load permit?MY SOLUTION - There should be no heavy load permits. As a farmer we haul a lot of heavy loads on the road. Making the legal weight limit less will effect which roads to drive on and will cause the law to be broken. The roads just don't take damage from heavy loads, and equipment. Old age plays a huge role in this. I think they should keep track of which roads have ware in them so they can fix them. Or every so many years re-due roads. By doing this they won't worry about heavy loads ruining roads. Right now rules are 80,000 pounds gross vehicle weight. 20,000 pounds single axle weight, and 34,000 pounds tandem axle weight. There is a lot of times we go over this limit.

1. Lowering speed limit on lower road and maple ridge circle to 45.

2. The town going with Oconto County's system for recycling.

3. Replacing a fire truck over 20 years old.

4. Hiring a DNR.
