ATV / UTV Usage

The Town of Sherman Board of Supervisors recently passed “Ordinance 2021-01 All-terrain  Vehicle and Utility-terrain Vehicle Route Ordinance”.  Signs have been installed and the routes have been approved.

The map of the approved routes can be found here.  Please pay particular attention to the different colored lines.  Yellow lines indicate town roads (all are approved with the exception of Mill Road), and green represent the approved county connectors.  The connectors are only parts of a county highway to allow motorists to get from town road to town road.  Where a county highway is not highlighted, it means that ATV/UTV travel on those sections is prohibited.

 

Please visit the DNR’s site for a ton of information:  https://dnr.wisconsin.gov/topic/atv

Some Important Tips when Paying Your RE Taxes

  • Double check the dollar (number) amount to the written amount.  If they do not match, the bank will send it back, and your payment could become delinquent.

     

  • If the check is made out to you and the Town of Sherman, please remember to endorse it before mailing it to the office.

     

  • If you would like a receipt, please remember to enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.  Envelopes without postage affixed will not be mailed.

     

  • Please remember to enclose the tax stub with your payment!  This is extremely important so that your payment is applied correctly.

     

  • Please write your phone number in the memo portion of the check.  This is so that if there are questions or problems with your payment, you can be contacted quickly and the situation can be handled most efficiently.

     

  • Please do not staple any documents together.
