Wisconsin Act 20: Land Records Order in Sawyer County and Moose Lake
Track: Cadastral and Land Records
Authors: Douglas Miskowiak
Wisconsin Act20 (2013) establishes a non-lapsable fund designated for land information. A statewide and publicly available parcel map is required by 2017. Sawyer County is making laudable progress toward that goal. The Moose Lake Legacy Initiative showcases the benefits of modernized land records. In 2007, county paper maps show 6 islands on Moose Lake, but citizens mapped 82. Hear about Sawyer County’s efforts to reconcile citizen data into modernized authoritative land records with Act20.
