 Other Important Information Minimize
The Town of Strongs Prairie also has a Room Tax Ordinance that has been in affect since 2005. The town updated the Ordinance in 2010, which now requires you to apply for a room tax permit. The cost of the permit is $100.00. If you do not have a permit issued for your rental you are out of compliance and therefore should not be renting. This applies if you personally handle the renting or you use a rental agency. After the permit has been issued, a required 5.5% charge is to be retained and submitted to the Town of Strongs Prairie on a quarterly basis. The town is then required to pay out to entities that promote tourism. This ordinance applies to anyone renting out rooms, houses, or condos on a temporary basis. If you have questions give the clerk a call at the town hall at 608-564-7626 on Mondays & Wednesdays between 1:00 & 3:00 p.m.
 
As many of you know, Arkdale is known for the beautiful flower baskets that hang from the street light poles. The Strong’s Prairie Community Club, which officially disbanded, was responsible for decorating and hanging these beautiful flower baskets. The town board would like to continue this tradition. At the present time, the board has recruited the Arkdale Kings and Queens’s 4-H Club to decorate the baskets with the town employees to hang them. As with everything, there is a cost and the board is looking for monetary donations to continue this worthwhile project. If you are interested in supporting this project please send your donations to the Town of Strongs Prairie, Flower Baskets, P.O. Box 69, Arkdale, WI 54613.
 
A reminder from your local Fire District all access roads to your property should be at least 12 feet wide to allow easy entrance for fire suppression equipment and emergency vehicles.
 
Pushing snow or other materials on or across highways from private driveways can cause accidents and death and is prohibited by Wisconsin Statue 86.01, 86.07 and /or 346.94. Please avoid penalty and liability and cooperate toward safer highways.
 
Wisconsin Statue 86.02 states in part “any person who shall damage a road or highway, in any way, shall be liable in treble damages, to be recovered by the political division responsible for the maintenance of said highway, and the amount recovered shall be credited to the highway maintenance fund.”
 
Please remember that rural mailboxes are allowed on the highway/town right-of-way as a matter of convenience to the landowners or occupants and not as a matter of right. This is governed by Section 86.04 of Wisconsin State Statues. It is the intention of this statue that if a mailbox is accidentally damaged by plowing snow, mowing the right-of-way, graveling the shoulder, etc., it is the responsibility of the landowner or occupant to repair or replace the mailbox.
