Boathouses http://wxpr.org en County Wants Input on Boathouse and Pier Rules http://wxpr.org/post/county-wants-input-boathouse-and-pier-rules <p></p><p>At the direction of the Oneida County Board, the Planning and Development committee wants the public to take an on-line survey concerning boathouses and piers.</p><p><br />Both issues have been debated at length over several years by the county. When some changes were proposed in the boathouse rules, the board decided to get more input before making a decision. While the state has rules governing piers, counties can have rules more strict than the state rules, as Oneida county does.</p> Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:26:34 +0000 Ken Krall 21136 at http://wxpr.org County Wants Input on Boathouse and Pier Rules Property Rights Versus Public Rights Debate Resurfaces http://wxpr.org/post/property-rights-versus-public-rights-debate-resurfaces <p>The Oneida County Board has tabled a move to allow boathouses&nbsp; at the water's edge.</p><p>A two-hour debate ensued, centering around the long-time flashpoint of property rights versus the water rights of all residents.</p><p>A public hearing in July asked whether to allow boathouses at the water's edge for storage and whether those structures could have flat roofs.</p><p>Lake protection groups have said the area near a lakeshore is crucial to maintaining a healthy lake, with runoff a problem.</p> Tue, 17 Dec 2013 20:47:08 +0000 Ken Krall 12089 at http://wxpr.org Property Rights Versus Public Rights Debate Resurfaces No Decision On Boathouse Roof Change http://wxpr.org/post/no-decision-boathouse-roof-change <P>A resolution that would allow flat roofs on boathouses in Oneida county was postponed at Tuesday's county board meeting.</P> <P>Planning and Development chair Scott Holowinski asked for the postponement after department Director Karl Jenrich heard from the DNR....</P> <P><I><U> </U></I></P> <BLOCKQUOTE> <P><I><U>"....we submitted it to DNR to comment on the rule and Karl, this morning, got an email(from the DNR) with some changes that the committee should talk about before we debate this.
