The Code Enforcement Office administers and enforces the County's land use ordinances, applicable chapters of the Wisconsin Administrative Code, and Wisconsin Statutes. Basic ordinance responsibility covers general zoning, shoreland zoning, floodplain zoning, private sewage, land division, and nonmetallic mining reclamation. Code Enforcement is authorized to issue permits when required to assure conformance with ordinance standards. Code Enforcement provides assistance for all permit applications, public hearing applications, concerns of violations, and basic land use information. The goal of these services is to promote the use of land in harmony with its neighboring uses and natural resources, and to protect the public's safety and interest in the location of structures and uses.

The GIS (Geographic Information System) Office is responsible for modernizing and maintaining County land records and land data in an electronic format. The foundation of the GIS is the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) layer from which all other layers are created and referenced. Layers of information available through the County's website include but are not limited to parcels, zoning, roads, soils, wetlands, floodplain, orthophotography, and hydrography. The GIS allows for the rapid and up-to-date transmission of data for use in daily countywide operations and by the general public.
