How do I get my lot line stakes located?

As of September 3, 2015, The Engineering Department is no longer able to provide the service of locating property corners for residents (see letter dated 9/3/2015).  If you need your property corners marked, or other related services performed, please contact a Land Surveyor licensed by the State of Wisconsin.  If you need assistance in locating a licensed land surveyor, a great resource is the Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyors:

For locating lot corners in Franklin, visit the website above and check the boxes for "Lot Survey" under "Survey Type" and "Milwaukee" under "County".  Licensed land surveyors will then be listed that can assist you.  The City of Franklin does not endorse nor promote any one land surveyor.  We suggest you check references and make an informed decision.

 

How do I request a stop sign or other sign at a location?

A written request addressed to the Board of Public Works is requested.  The item will then be placed on the Board of Public Works agenda and you will be notified of the day and time.
