How close can I build a fence to the road?
Fences should not be built on the right of way, but if they are, permission should be obtained from either the township trustees or the county engineer. Many fences already exist in the right of way and unless they pose a serious hazard they will be handled on a case by case basis for removal. A policy for fences on the right of way is being formulated and will be published when it is adopted.
