There is movement on grandfathering existing piers. I received this note from Lois Derrick, Catfish Lake Association President.
The Wisconsin legislature has approved new rules that will grandfather ALL existing docks from the requirement to meet certain size limits. Gov. Walker is expected to sign the bill. So none of you need to register your oversized docks by April 1st. Hopefully this will relieve your anxiety. I will be sending the annual Catfish Lake newsletter in April. There is still a lot of ice on the lake.
