We have added the Ordinances that the Town of Riverview has updated
and approved in 2012 to the Town of Riverview website.
New this Year:
Thanks to the US Forest Service, our Town received 2,700 yards
of gravel (valued at $14,175), at no cost for the following Forest
Service Roads: Sunrise Lake, LaFave, Holt Ranch, Sullivan Springs
and Loon Rapids. The estimated expense of placing the gravel
including loader, trucks and a grader is $10,000. This expense
is the Towns responsibility and will be covered in the
The mortgage papers on our Town Hall and Community Center
will be burned after our last payment is made in January. We
will be able to pay off the loan including interest and principal
payments of $330,385 in five years and become debt free.
Oconto County will be billing the Riverview taxpayers $12,224
on behalf of the Brown County Library. The current Wisconsin
State Law allows a consolidated library to bill an adjacent county
for books loaned to cardholders outside of their jurisdiction.
Although Riverview has only 16 cardholders at the Brown County
Library, the bill is large as it is determined based on equalized
valuation within Oconto County. This is an unfair law and is
being fought by both Town and County officials. We hope to have
this resolved by 2014.
An ice skate sharpener has been purchased from Park and Rec fundraising
proceeds. Ice skates are available to anyone in the community
without a charge and may be obtained on Tuesdays and Thursdays,
9:30-3:30 p.m. or by calling (715) 850-1473 or (414) 333-2817
and scheduling an appointment.
A new ordinance in 2012 is for new construction and building
additions. A Construction/Occupancy Deposit Agreement needs to
be signed and a deposit is required to be paid to the Town of
Riverview upon execution. This deposit protects the Town from
damages to Town property and roads created during construction.
After the construction has been completed, if no damage is incurred
to Town property and there is compliance with all permits, the
deposit will be returned.
Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP):
The community brush and chipping project will continue at Boundary
Lake area because of its high risk for wildfire. The project
is funded by the WI DNR with a donated match of labor from the
landowners, who cut and haul the brush to the roadside for chipping.
The project will be completed in June.
2012 tax bills will be mailed by the County in early December.
You will receive a separate mailer for each parcel that you own.
The first installment is due by January 31st, 2013 and should
be mailed to:
If you would like a receipt, you MUST enclose a self-addressed
stamped envelope. NO receipts will be mailed without one.
