Town of Shelby, Wisconsin

Town of Shelby Welcomes You

Update:  Monday 8/16/17 Today, August 16, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. Emergency Management Director for La Crosse County chaired a meeting with FEMA Representatives, DNR Representatives, County Officials, LAX Representatives and Township Officials.  The purpose was to discuss damages from the July 20th storm and determine if each entity’s condition seeking repair from the event has stabilized.

A Representative outline the importance of each of the next steps in toward seeking funding from President Trump.

  • Step 1: Over the course of the next two days, FEMA Representatives will review all the data each entity has compiled, labor costs, equipment costs, and product costs to temporarily repair damaged areas. They will look for inconsistencies in funding requests to repair sites which was damaged, only in the July 20th event.
  • Step 2: Sites will be visited by the DNR and FEMA in Shelby in reference to damage on roadways, creeks, walking bridges and down trees. (Time Line 3 days)
  • FEMA will put together information and costs in the form of a letter that will be sent to Governor Scott Walker. This letter’s subject line is to seek support for funding cleanup and restoration of all the areas affected by the July 20th event.  If the letter receives support from Governor Walker it will be sent to President Trump. (Time Line 7 to 10 days)
  •  This is a critical stage in the process; If President Trump declares our area as a designated national disaster additional funds will be available for homeowners.  These grants will help individuals seeking money to recover some or all of their costs associated with the disaster. Additionally, funds will be available for upgrading infrastructure and addressing the problem instead of band aiding the issue.

A meeting is scheduled for tomorrow Thursday at 8:00 a.m. August 17th with FEMA to discuss our application for assistance from the Federal Government.

  • 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)
