Taxes Grace Period – Fri. Aug 6 @5pm: Please note that your Property Taxes were due this past Saturday, however, Walworth County has given you a grace-period.  :) If you have not yet paid the second half of your property taxes, you must do so on or before Friday, August 6 @5pm at the Walworth County Treasurer's office.  Unfortunatley, you can not pay them at the Town of Delavan Town Hall. They must be paid to the Walworth County Treasurer, who has asked that you drop off your payment in person, rather than mailing it, to ensure the payment is on time. The Walworth County Treasurer's address is 100 W WALWORTH, ELKHORN, WI 53121. They have a PO box, if you choose to send it in the mail - PO Box 1001. Their office hours are 8am to 4:30pm, and if you arrive after hours, there is a drop box in the Walworth County parking lot. Reminder: Your second half of property taxes can not be paid at the Town of Delavan Town Hall, nor should you send it in the mail to the Town of Delavan Town Hall.  All payments are to be dropped off and/or sent to the Walworth County Treasurer's Office on or before Friday, August 6 @5pm. Thank you kindly! Have a great week!   *PS: Yes, you have been able to pay the first half of your taxes in our Town of Delavan Town Hall, however, residents are not allowed to do so for the second half of your property taxes. We apologize for any in convenience. That decision was made by the county. You can contact the Walworth County Treasurer at 262-741-4251 or [email protected]

Buoy, Raft & Pier Regulations

Buoy and Raft Permits

Did you know...You need a permit in order to have a buoy or raft in the lake? The permit is $30.00 for three years and can be obtained at the Town Hall or downloaded here.

 

Pier Addressing

For safety and emergency reasons it is important that everyone puts their address on their pier. Town Ordinance 19.8(a) states:

​The Town Board shall require the owners of all wharves and piers to install address numbers on those piers clearly visible for purposes of identification. Such numbers shall be a minimum of three (3”) inches in height in a color that contrasts with the color of the pier. Subdivision and Associations shall have the name of the Association or Subdivision installed upon its pier in lieu of address numbers. Such lettering shall be a minimum of three (3”) inches in height in a color that contrasts with the color of the pier. Subdivisions and Associations with multiple piers shall have the name of the Association of Subdivision installed upon its main pier or piers and shall assign and install individual numbers on the remaining piers. Such lettering and numbering shall be a minimum of three (3”) in height in a color that contrasts with the color of the piers.

As of the spring of 2014, if you do not have the proper permit for your buoy or raft you will be warned by the police department and will have 30 days to obtain one. If this is not done then a citation will be issued.

Check the current ordinance to see what the specifications and regulations are to properly install and be compliant with the ordinance.
