What kind of site prep is required prior to hangar construction?

The hangars in the area can be built on the existing ground.

There is water and sewer available at the Airport. Each must be individually metered. Contact the Airport Manager or the Sextonville Utility for information.

You must submit a bill of sale to Airport Manager who will issue a new lease to the new hangar owner.

How does alternate side parking work?

City Council Resolution 2012-13 changed the Alternate Side Parking procedure for vehicles parked on streets within the city of Richland Center. Beginning November 1, 2012, vehicles parked on the street are now required to follow Alternate Side Parking regulations each and every night between November 1st and March 31st between the hours of midnight and 7:00 am. Alternate Side Parking is no longer tied to an accumulating snowfall as had been the case for the past ten years.

Alternate Side Parking is enforced between midnight and 7:00 am. During those hours, vehicles must be parked on the odd numbered side of the street on odd numbered dates and the even side of the street on even numbered dates. The date during the overnight hours of midnight to 7:00 am determines odd or even side parking. Residents need to make sure that any overnight guests are in compliance with Alternate Side Parking. Residents with questions regarding the new procedure are encouraged to call the police department at 647-2103.

Do I have to have address numbers on my home or business?

Yes. City ordinance requires address numbers to be securely attached to the front of all buildings in a conspicuous position and not higher that the first or ground floor. The numbers shall be not less than three (3) inches in height. House numbers greatly assist fire, police and EMS in locating the correct address. It is also very helpful for deliveries, family and friends.

Where can I obtain a temporary license plate for my new vehicle?

You can obtain a temporary license plate from the Battery Box located on Hwy 80 just south of the city or at Richland Motors located at 270 South Jefferson Street.

Where do I pay a parking ticket?

You can pay either at the Richland Center Police Department or by dropping the yellow ticket containing the correct amount into one of our yellow collection boxes located in front of the Richland County Bank or in front of BMO Harris Bank.
