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 –

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.
