Out of an abundance of caution and to help keep our communities and employees safe and healthy, the Land Use and Resource Management (LURM) Department is suspending in-person meetings and appointments. LURM has a drop off bin for permit submittals in the lobby area outside of its second floor office. Permit applications can also be mailed to LURM, P.O. Box 1001, Elkhorn, WI 53121. Permit receipts will be sent through U.S. Mail. If LURM staff have questions about your submittal, they will contact you. Permit turnaround time prior to community disruption due to this virus was approximately two (2) weeks. If you wish to reach LURM staff, you can do so by telephone, FaceTime, or Skype. For instructions on how to use FaceTime or Skype, please call the LURM office at (262) 741-4972. If you have questions, you can email the LURM Department at LURM@co.walworth.wi.us. Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.
