Maine Revised Statutes

§3052. Materials placed on roadside; removal

If any municipality in the construction or repair of its highways places any stone, sod or other material upon land within the limit of any highway which the owner has cleared from stone and smoothed so that it is tillable land and so used, said municipality shall within 30 days remove the same from such land. Failing to do this, the owner of said land may remove such stone, sod or other material therefrom and be paid the same price per hour for such removal as is paid by said municipality for labor in the construction and repair of its roads.
