Graduation Signs

Congratulations to all our 2020 Graduates!

On May 20, 2020, the Planning Commission approved a request to allow 18×24 signs in the yards of all high school and college graduates until July 31, 2020.

On July 31st the exception will expire and we will return to Village Ordinance 21.07.020 for Portable Signs which reads: any sign which is not fastened, anchored, and resting on a permanent foundation shall be considered a portable sign and shall not be permitted in any district.



Mulch is available for $10 per yard plus tax, delivered.  Call 459-3873 to place an order.  Deliveries are Friday mornings only.


Building Permits are required for all residential projects involving construction, heating, plumbing and electrical work that has a value greater than $1,000.00.  Home additions, garages, accessory buildings, decks and other exterior modifications need Village of Kohler Plan Commission review.  Visit our website at for a building permit application or call the Public Works Department at 459-3881 for more information.


If you are considering installing a fence, please be reminded of the following process.  The home owner needs to obtain a property survey, a copy of your deed, pictures of the areas impacted by the fence, fence specifications, a site plan and a cover letter explaining the scope of the project.  This information is submitted to Kohler Co. for approval.  Once approved by Kohler Co., the Village’s Planning Commission needs to review and approve as well.   This process may take up to 3 months.


One temporary “garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall be permitted on each lot. Signs located on public property will be removed by the Public Works Department or Police Department.


Storable swimming pools, require an annual $50 permit. A storable pool is any pool which holds 1000 gallons of water or more.  Storable pools must be located 35 feet from all lot lines and meet ALL electrical codes for the pump.


Residents are reminded not to use Plastic Bags in the Yard Waste Containers.


Brush pickup (tree branches) has commenced.  Brush must be neatly piled in four-foot lengths. The maximum diameter is six inches. No brush with thorns will be picked up. Thorny material must be cut up and put in the cart with the green lid. Brush not complying will be tagged and not picked up.

If a homeowner hires a professional arborist to trim or remove trees, the arborist must take the debris with them.  If a resident performs the work themselves, the Village will remove the branches and limbs.
