Municipalities differ on sex offender regulation

Village of Pewaukee – Advised that the legality of sex offender residency limitations is far from certain, village officials are taking a cautious approach toward drafting a local ordinance.

Trustees on Tuesday discussed joining several other communities across southeast Wisconsin that have enacted ordinances restricting where sex offenders, especially those just released from prison, can live. Those municipalities have created prohibited zones within a certain distance from schools, parks, playgrounds and other places where children congregate.
