CLEARING TOWN ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAYS
In 2021 the Town of Lincoln began an extensive and over due clearing of Town Road Right-of-ways. Clearing the right-of-way ensures safe travel, increases visibility, and decreases the chance of fallen trees on the roadway. Clearing the right-of-way is the responsibility of the township. Most right of ways extend 33' from the center of the road for a total of 66' of right of way. Click here to review an article about many common town right of way questions.
The pride of the Town of Lincoln is its volunteer fire department. Started in 1963, the fire department serves seven townships and one village.
During local elections, the fire department is used to host elections and are staffed with dedicated election workers.
