Snow & Ice Parking Regulations: Starting November 15th, street parking on Town roads is prohibited from the start of winter weather events, including snow, freezing rain, and/or sleet, until after snow and/or ice are removed. The purpose is for safe and efficient use of Town roads.  Signs were installed to advise road users throughout the Town. The snow & ice street parking regulations are in effect until April 1.  A full copy of Town Ordinance 2023-002, Snow & Ice Parking Regulations, is available at https://townoflinn.wi.gov/municipal-code.  Thank you for your cooperation in advance of the winter season.

Wisconsin Salt Awareness Week – Jan 23 – 27

he Wisconsin Salt Wise Partnership gears up to spotlight the threats that road salt poses to our rivers, lakes and drinking water. All the salt that we apply to pavement ends up in our water, making our freshwater less and less fresh each year. Just a teaspoon of salt permanently pollutes five gallons of water. 

Wisconsin Salt Awareness Week

Monday, January 23rd to Friday, January 27th

Daily livestreams 12:30-1pm

Featuring five speakers over five days, daily livestreams will address the environmental toll of deicers, salts in our drinking water, actions the Wisconsin DNR is planning, and how residents can get involved. Online registration: www.wisaltwise.com.

Using more salt than is necessary doesn’t actually make our roads or sidewalks safer. Excess salt does prematurely age infrastructure and damage freshwater resources. Municipalities across the state are dialing in salt use through improved mechanical removal, calibration, and the precision application of deicers. By focusing on first removing as much snow as possible and then right-sizing salt use when necessary, residents and businesses can cut down how much we spend on salt, protect our freshwater lakes and rivers, and keep pavements safe.

The Town of Linn is a member of the WI Salt Wise Partnership and a Municipal Champion.
