  • Apply for your 2014 FIRE RING PERMIT (FREE) online-see Fire Dept heading on left and apply!  They go right to the Fire Chiefs Office and they get emailed back to you!  No need to have them mailed or get a paper copy.

  • STATE ROAD RECONSTRUCTION will begin March 31st.  Construction will begin at the west end of the project. 32nd Street to Norseman Road will remain open to local traffic only.  (Local Traffic includes customers of Hillside Animal Hospital) Irish Hill, from Norseman Road to Knobloch Road, will be completely closed to all traffic. Knobloch Road and those coming to La Crosse from the east will have to use an alternate route to get to La Crosse.  The official DOT detour is Hwy 14 to Wesby, then Hwy 27 to Cashton.  Local residents have a few options using county roads, but it will be a difficult summer for many of us!  This is a WI Dept of Transportation Project.  Contact State Office DOT, Brian Meyer @ 789-5676.

  • PROPERTY ASSESSMENT: The Town has hired Associated Appraisal Consultants to do a complete revaluation of the Town of Shelby in 2014.  Each property will be visited and viewed inside and out.  A digital record will be prepared to comply with Wisconsin law requiring all property records to be digitized by 2015.  A time-line for the revaluation and more information will be coming out at a later date.  (posted 10/13)
  • RECYCLING CARDBOARD: Boxes should be broken down, bundled and placed next to or on top of the recycling bin and covered if it is going to rain.  Corregated cardboard has a wavy layer between the inner and outer sides. Cereal boxes, soda cartons, beer cubes, etc are not corregated cardboard and should be placed in the trash.  They are burned at the NSP RDF Facility and turned into electricity, which is not as high in the recycling heirarchy, but at this point the market for these materials does not warrant separate collection. (posted 9/13/2014)
  • 911 SIGNS: Project to replace all the 911 signs in the Town is underway.  New signs have been installed along Hwy 33, 35 and Co Road K. Project will be completed over the next two to three years.  New posts with fire numbers (same fire number/address, no new numbers) will comply with Federal mandates on size and visibility of address.  More information to follow as details of the project are completed. (posted 8/13/2014)
  • DRIVEWAY PERMIT: You need a Permit for any driveway repaving or reconstruction No charge for this permit - just like to make sure the drainage will be flowing correctly. (posted 5/13/2014)
  • 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. (posted 4/13/2014)
  • 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)
