A Reminder About Shoreland Ordinances and Tree Trimming

February 21st, 2017 | Posted by Kyle Jones in Government - (Comments Off on A Reminder About Shoreland Ordinances and Tree Trimming)

Dear ELIA members,

The Village has asked us to send a reminder to our membership concerning our Shoreland Ordinances and in particular, the area covering the cutting of trees. There has been some non-permitted tree cutting recently and it is thought that perhaps a reminder to all would be helpful, just in case.

Village Ordinace 17.06 has regulations on shoreline vegetation protection. Please remember that before doing any cutting or trimming to check with the Village offices at 920-876-2122 as a Village Shoreland Permit is required.

For those of you living in the Town of Rhine, the DNR and the County Office of Planning and Environment are the people to contact. The town follows the Shoreline Ordinance as posted on the County website – http://www.sheboygancounty.com/government/departments-f-q/planning-and-conservation/ordinances-regulations/shoreland-ordinance

Your tree trimmer service may not know about this ordinance so it is the property owner’s responsibility to secure the necessary Village permit prior to any work being performed. In the town, please check with the County office.

Thank you for your help conforming to the ordinance(s) as you make plans for work on your property.

We were scheduled to have a treatment today June 18th on parts of the lake to control curly leaf pondweed and eurasian water milfoil. The treatment area map is attached. When the time came it was too windy on the lake for it to be effective. It will happen next week sometime. We will send out an email and post it on the web site to let you know one day ahead. If you are in the treatment area there will be a yellow sign posted on your property near the water.

Elkhart Lake Improvement Association apply for permit to apply herbicides

March 19th, 2015 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Elkhart Lake Improvement Association apply for permit to apply herbicides)

The Elkhart lake Improvement Association is applying for a permit from the Wisconsin Department of  Natural Resources to apply herbicides for the control of the aquatic plant species, Eurasian Water Milfoil and Curly Leaf Pondweed for the 2015 season. We did not apply herbicides in 2014.

This is just one important method of controlling the spread of invasive plants.        If left alone, invasive plants can negatively impact the fish and native plant population in the lake.

Only problem areas, where hand pulling is not feasible, will be considered for treatment

Any questions that you may have can be directed to:  Nancy Hanlon jnhanlon@frontier.com

This notice is required under Chapter NR 107 of the WI Administration code.
