Hopefully Adele Nicholas can shake things up in Mayville, Wisconsin, (Dodge County) as they have the same bunch of nonsense, “In 2008, the City adopted Chapter 357 Sex Offender Residency Restrictions. It serves the City’s compelling interest to promote, protect, and improve the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the City by creating areas around locations where children regularly congregate in concentrated numbers wherein certain sexual offenders and sexual predators are prohibited from establishing temporary or permanent residence. Sex Offenders are urged to contact the city prior to establishing residency in Mayville. A current map of the restricted areas can be found in the Sex Offender Restriction Map. Any offender wishing to establish residency in a restricted area may request a hearing in front of the Sex Offender Residence Board by calling 387-7900.” this was put out my the police department and they are already dealing with a not to honest, former, Police Chief (http://www.fdlreporter.com/story/news/local/2017/04/06/mayville-police-chief-resigns/100134152/) – I doubt they have much left to fight their 1200 foot restricrtion: Prohibited location of residence. It is unlawful for any designated offender to establish a permanent residence or temporary residence within 1,200 feet of any school, licensed day-care center, park, trail, playground, place of worship, or any other place designated by the City as a place where children are known to congregate.
