Letter to the Editor:

I would like to applaud the Vilas County Board as well as the town board of St. Germain for recently passing resolutions to return shoreline zoning control back to the local governing bodies.

Our local elected officials are best equipped to address local concerns, some of which are not shared by our state politicians. The St. Germain resolution is available to read on the St. Germain town website under “resolutions.”

I’m also asking that our local population help support 2021 Assembly Bill 1110 and 2021 Assembly Bill 1090 by writing to our local representatives.

Assemblyman Swearingen and Sen. Felzkowski are reachable via email at [email protected] and [email protected], respectively, or their U.S. mail addresses: Sen. Mary Felzkowski, P.O. Box 7782, Madison, WI 53707-7882; and Rep. Rob Swearingen, P.O. Box 9853, Madison, WI 53707-8953.
