Editor's Note: This ordinance also repealed former Ch. 124, Buildings, Numbering of, adopted 5-16-2002 (§ 8.03 of the 1994 Code), as amended.
All building structures for residential, commercial, industrial or other uses in the Town of Winneconne, Winnebago County shall be assigned an E-911 number.
The E-911 numbers shall be requested by the property owner from the Winnebago County GIS Department. Winnebago County will notify the Town of Winneconne of the newly assigned E-911 number.
Whenever any house building or structure shall be erected in the Town of Winneconne, in order to preserve the continuity of numbers of all houses, buildings or structures, the owner shall procure the correct number as designated from the Town for the property and immediately install the number so assigned as provided in this chapter. No building permit shall be issued for any house, building or structure until the owner has procured the official E-911 number sign for the premises.
After the initial installation of the E-911 signs in the summer of 2008, the cost of the sign, hardware and post shall be borne by the property owner and shall be included in the charge for a building permit. Replacement signs, hardware and posts shall be charged to the property owners and such fees will be paid to the Town Clerk.
Each property is required to display the Town of Winneconne adopted, standardized E-911 number sign. The Town of Winneconne will obtain and install the initial set of E-911 signs throughout the Town. New or replacement signs installed after the initial install has been completed shall be installed as follows: six-and-one-half-foot posts are to be installed approximately 24 inches in the ground, approximately 15 feet from the edge of the left side of the driveway facing the building from the road, and on the back edge of the right-of-way. The alternate location would be the right side of the driveway with the same measurements. Alternate locations may be necessary due to foliage, lot line boundaries or other obstructions that would compromise the effectiveness of the sign if installed in the primary location.
Property owners are responsible to maintain their E-911 number sign in a fashion that meets the requirements of this chapter and subsequent amendments. Failure to maintain their E-911number sign and post or failure to install E-911 number signs after notification from the Town will cause property owners to be subject to the penalties as provided in Chapter 1, § 1-4 of this Code.
