344.20 TOWN OPTION.
If eight or more landowners in a town petition the town board for a vote on a partition fence
policy, the town board may adopt its own policy and procedures for dealing with partition fences,
including enforcement procedures. The policy must be approved by the electors of the town at an
annual or special town meeting, in which case this chapter does not apply in that town.
This chapter applies to any partition fence lying on the boundary between a town which has
adopted its own partition fence policy and any other political subdivision unless the other political
subdivision is a town which has adopted a similar policy.
