What is a Town road right-of-way?

The Town has a maintenance right-of-way on all roads, which is the area that we use to place snow, maintain underground utilities and mow or clear brush. Call the Highway Department and the Superintendent will tell you where the Town's right-of-way is on your particular road, usually 25' from the center of the road. We advise residents to keep all plantings and items out of the right-of-way to avoid damage and for safety reasons.
