Town of Washburn

The Town of Washburn has been having a rash of road sign thefts recently. It is my understanding that other townships have been having the same problem. It has cost the residents of our township over $2,000 to replace the signs. The purpose of this letter is for the awareness of people in the area. If you come across any of these road signs, you can assume that they have been stolen. The most recent signs that have been stolen are Lucia, Engoe, Brevak, Paulson, Church Corner, Strecker, Wannebo, and Pajala. There have been STOP signs taken also. There are stickers on the back of the STOP signs that indicate they belong to the Town of Washburn and there is a warning of a possible $250 fine for taking them. The Bayfield County Sheriff’s Department is aware of this situation. If you have any information please call the Sheriff’s Department at 715-373-6120. In the past signs have been found thrown out in a ditch, if you come across one of these signs, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you for any help you can provide to stop this pointless vandalism.
