The Village of Wolverine Lake Clerk's Office is always ready to serve Village residents in any way we can. Our Administrative Assistants, Paige Knutson and Tabitha Linsenmeyer, as well as all other staff members, respond to many types of questions each day. Questions typically include how to obtain building, electrical, plumbing, and heating permits; paying tax bills; acquiring dog tags; leaf, compost and waste pickup; voter registration; etc.
The Clerk's Office is the official keeper of Village records and Zoning and General Ordinances. Some of the most common residential ordinance concerns relate to accessory structures, fencing, outdoor storage, property line setback, swimming pools, etc.
As a matter of information, the Village does not require a permit for garage sales, but our sign ordinance restricts signage to residential property only.
