  • 911 SIGNS: Signs are still be installed in some locations around Town.
  • There is a serious problem with dog feces being left in the parks!  It should be picked and taken home, not left in refuse containers at the parks or thrown in the bathrooms.  If the problem continues, dogs will be banned from all Town of Shelby parks.  Those who use the parks for other activities and park maintenance staff should not have to deal with your dog feces.  We are also having reports of dogs running loose in Pammel Creek Park and Mormon Coulee Park.  Dogs must be on a lease at all times outside of your yard. (posted 4/13/2014)
  • DUMPSTERS: Town does not allow dumpster or other obstructions to be placed on Town right-of-way.  Permits are available for special circumstances. (posted 4/13)
  • Town right-of-way extends 10-15 feet beyond the edge of the road.  This area is used for snow storage when snow is pushed back away from the road and sometimes the plows tear up the sod and dirt.  Generally the property owner will be responsible for repair. (posted 1/14/2014)
  • A permit is required for Drive Way restructuring, resurfacing. There is no fee for this permit. We just want to make sure culverts are in good condition and the water flow is moving the way it needs to move. (posted 4/7/2015)

Road Department


The Road crew is responsible for maintaining 45 miles of Shelby town roads, town parks, Shelby Youth Ball fields and the sewer and water systems for Sanitary District #2.


During the winter, the crew is responsPlow_Truck_with_2_bladesible for keeping the roads clear of snow, trimming trees from road shoulders and maintaining the Town's equipment.  During snow events the Town uses 6 plow trucks and a snow blower to keep the roads and walkways open.

Summer time projects include street sweeping, ditch cleaning, drain repairs, general road work, road side mowing and any other repairs needed to the Town's facilities.

The 5 full time road crew is supplemented by 6-8 part time workers in the summer to keep the parks mowed and 2-3 in the winter to assist with plowing.

Reminders and Concerns:  Town road crew and office continues to receive calls relating to grass being scraped next to the road.  The Town right-of-way extends 30 to 33 feet from center line and the area adjacent to the paved road is for snow plowing and snow storage.  This area will be scraped during the winter and this is unavoidable.  The Town does not repair this area unless damage is extensive.  Please note before calling.

Spring Roads:  Once the snow is gone, the Road crew will begin cleaning up the sand from the winter.  Sand from ditches and driveways can be placed in the street to be picked up by the sweeper when it comes through.  The sweeper goes out as early in the spring as possible to pick up the majority of the sand and then it goes out a second time to clean the streets a little better.

Please call the office, not the Road crew, if you have any problems regarding a road  Call the General Hotline ext 6
