If you have questions regarding town roads, trees in the right of way or snow removal please contact the Highway Garage at at 696-5378. The Garage is open from 6am to 4:30pm Monday through Thursday.
Throughout the winter months Highway maintains up to 50 miles of local roads as well as plowing and sanding State Routes 43, 201 and 148. Each summer Highway works to resurface roads and ditches throughout the town. In addition, the Highway crew also lends their services to many community- based projects.
IN-TOWN LEAF & BRUSH PICKUP: The Town provides this service each spring and fall in the village area. Watch this short video for details.
DRIVEWAYS & MAIL BOXES: Although the Town of Madison has no obligation to replace mailboxes that are damaged due to plowing the roads during a snow storm, we do try to help out where ever possible. Residents can help by making sure their mailboxes are not in the public roadway and by checking them periodically for stability.
Any time a new driveway is put in place, a permit must be taken out at the Town Office and the driveway location must be approved by the Road Commissioner. For information on driveways, and how to place and maintain your mailbox, please click on the links below.
Slippery roads, snow or ice covered sidewalks.
While municipalities have a statutory duty to remove snow so as to make town ways passable, they are immune from liability for accidents caused by snow or ice on road surfaces. Neither is a slippery road surface due to snow or ice a "highway defect". Nor does the failure to remove snow or ice constitute negligent "street cleaning or repair". Please drive cautiously and keep a greater distance behind fellow motorists.
