Roads - Illegal Use Of Right Of Way
Resolution # 11-17-2014
IllegaL Use of Township Road Right-of-way
Brandon Township asks you to help them prevent the mis-use of the Township roads as a dumping ground. Specifically, the only things that can legally be put into the right-of-way (33 feet from center of road on both sides) are mail boxes, traffic signs, and driveways.
Everything else is prohibited by law, including placement in the right-of-way of building materials, rocks, tree and brush plantings or any debris. Burning anything in the right-of-way is also prohibited.
Minnesota Statues, Section 169.42 (traffic regulations) and, also, Minnesota Statutes, Section 609.68 (criminal offenses) both make the above practices a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $700 or imprisonment for up to 90 days, for each offense.
