Office of the Revisor of Statutes


A town board may annually levy the tax it decides is necessary for police and fire apparatus and to operate and keep up the apparatus. The tax must not be more than the amount that the electors allowed for the purpose. The board may enter into any contracts necessary to get, operate, and keep up the apparatus and shall control the apparatus. If the apparatus is shared under section 365.17 with home rule charter or statutory cities or other towns, the control must be shared with them.
