RHINELANDER - At least one elected supervisor in the Northwoods hopes his county ignores state law and goes its own way.

It's the latest argument over shoreland zoning rules in Wisconsin.

In 2015, a new law limited counties' ability to make their own shoreland zoning rules regarding issues such as lot size, vegetation, and setback of buildings. Instead, counties needed to follow a zoning law that is less restrictive to property owners. The law applies to the entire state.
