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.
