The legal documents have been prepared by the Town attorney, Matt Parmentier. The Town Board began this process by adopting a Resolution on August 11, 2014. Since, with the assistance of Attorney Parmentier notices were sent to the parties involved. The Department of Transportation and the County Highway Commission were also notified of the proposed road discontinuance of Mt Pleasant Drive. The Town filed a Notice of Intent to vacate with the Register of Deeds. This process continues now with the public hearing and the board taking final action. Wisconsin Statues 82.10 through 82.20 is the sections dealing with Town Highways. The word “highway” includes a road or drive. The Town is given almost unlimited discretion in making its decision. The standard is whether the Town Board believes that the public good will be promoted.

Frank then announced that the pubic hearing would begin on the proposed discontinuance of Mt Pleasant Drive. He asked if anyone wished to address the Board on the proposed discontinuance of this road. Hearing none;

Frank asked the Town Board to now consider Mt Pleasant Drive. Attorney Parmentier has prepared a proposed “Resolution to Discontinue Public Way” and a proposed “Order To Discontinue Public Way”.
