Drainage Easement Training
Tuesday, June 25
Grand Chute Town Hall
Join us for a panel discussion!
- How other municipalities control easement grading after they have graded an easement and
then homes are built on the adjacent lots?
- What types of maintenance other municipalities perform and what is the property owner
supposed to maintain for drainage easements and/or roadside ditches?
- How often are inspections being performed? Who is performing them and what happens after an
inspection finds a problem?
- Learn what others are doing in response to the above questions and more.
- Share what has been successful in your community.
- Learn about easements from a legal perspective from a representative from Edgarton, St.
Peter, Petak and Rosenfeldt.
