  • 911 SIGNS: Signs are still be installed in some locations around Town.
  • There is a serious problem with dog feces being left in the parks!  It should be picked and taken home, not left in refuse containers at the parks or thrown in the bathrooms.  If the problem continues, dogs will be banned from all Town of Shelby parks.  Those who use the parks for other activities and park maintenance staff should not have to deal with your dog feces.  We are also having reports of dogs running loose in Pammel Creek Park and Mormon Coulee Park.  Dogs must be on a lease at all times outside of your yard.

  • DUMPSTERS: Town does not allow dumpster or other obstructions to be placed on Town right-of-way.  Permits are available for special circumstances. (posted 4/13)
  • Town right-of-way extends 10-15 feet beyond the edge of the road.  This area is used for snow storage when snow is pushed back away from the road and sometimes the plows tear up the sod and dirt.  Generally the property owner will be responsible for repair. (posted 1/14/2014)
  • A permit is required for Drive Way restructuring, resurfacing. There is no fee for this permit. We just want to make sure culverts are in good condition and the water flow is moving the way it needs to move. (posted 4/7/2015)
