The Town Board of the Town of Dunkirk does ordain as follows:

 

Opt-In for Category B-IOHs to Comply with the Table of Statutory

Weight Limits Under Wis. Stats. Sec. 348.15(3)(g)

 

Whereas, 2013 Wis. Act 377 under Sec. 348.15 (9) (f) 1. provides that there is no weight limitation per wheel, axle, or group of axles for Category B implements of husbandry as defined in Sec. 340.01 (24) (a)1.b., but does apply gross vehicle weight limitations to these vehicles, and

 

Whereas, Wis. Stat. § 348.15(9)(f)1. authorizes the municipality or county to require compliance with axle weight limitations established under Sec. 348.15 (3)(g) for Category B implements of husbandry defined in Sec. 340.01(24)(a)1.b. on all highways under its jurisdiction,

 

Now, therefore, BE IT HEREBY ORDAINED by the Town of Dunkirk, of Dane County, that pursuant to Sec. 348.15 (9) (f) of Wis. Statutes, all implements of husbandry (including Category B implements of husbandry defined in Sec. 340.01 (24) (a) 1.b.) may not exceed the weight limits imposed by Chapter 348.15 (3) (g) of Wis. Statutes.

 

Further, BE IT HEREBY ORDAINED that to exceed the length and/or weight limitations on highways under this jurisdiction a no-fee permit may be applied for from the municipal jurisdiction.

 

Further, BE IT HEREBY ORDAINED that pursuant to Sec. 348.27 (19)(b) 4m.a. in the event an application for a no-fee permit is made for a Category B implement of husbandry as defined in Sec. 340.01 (24)(a)1.b., the municipal jurisdiction or county is required to provide an approved alternate route, which may include highways that are not under this jurisdiction if prior approval has been given by the jurisdiction over the alternate routes not under this entity’s jurisdiction for operation of Category B implements of husbandry as defined in Sec. 340.01 (24) (a) 1. b.

 

Further, BE IT HEREBY ORDAINED that this ordinance shall remain in effect until rescinded by further action of the board.

 

Further, BE IT HEREBY ORDAINED that a copy of this ordinance shall be provided to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to be posted on the state DOT website.
