BRUSH SITE CLOSED FOR WINTER MONTHS

The brush site is closed through the winter months as it is not plowed.  As it snows it turns into a very muddy area.  It will be available in the early spring as the snow melts!  Thank you.

ROAD CONSTRUCTION 2021 UPDATE REGARDING 190TH STREET

ROAD CONSTRUCTION UPDATE 2021: 190th Street from Hwy X to 70th Ave was planned for reconstruction in 2021. Road construction has been delayed to 2022 because of changes in the State Budget putting more money into special projects like this road, which is the 2nd bustiest road in Lafayette, over 3200 vehicles per day. The new program pays for 90% of the cost of the project almost $ 350,000.00. Your Town Board felt it was worth the wait to see if we qualified for the funding. When completed the road will have 12-foot driving lanes and 6-foot paved shoulders along with turn lanes and 3 way stop on 70th Ave. Survey and design work has been started for this project by S E H with the application due in October of 2021. Thank you for your patience on these road repairs. David Staber, Town Chairman


NEW BATHROOMS AT RAY’S BEACH GO FUND ME PAGE!!

Hi my name is David Staber I’m Town Chairman of Lafayette Township in Chippewa County. Ray’s Beach, the only free public beach on Lake Wissota is in need of new bathrooms with running water and flush toilets. Ray’s Beach was built back in 2006 on land that was purchased from Xcel Energy in 1996 on land that was high sand banks and not easily accessible. After 10 years of negotiations with the Canadian Railroad we secured two crossings to the beach from the Highway X wayside. Pit toilets were installed as part of the construction project and have outlived their use-full life.
