Green Bay Port of Entry Limits Proposed to be Modified
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is proposing to expand the geographic limits of the Green Bay, Wis., port of entry. Comments on this proposed rule are due no later than Jan. 9, 2012.
According to CBP, the current limits of the Green Bay POE include the corporate limits of Green Bay and the territory within the townships of Ashwaubenon, Allouez, Preble and Howard and the city of De Pere, all in Wisconsin. However, the boundaries of the listed townships are not easy to locate, Preble township no longer exists, and due to an error a portion of the Austin Straubel Airport is located outside the current port limits.
To correct these problems, CBP is proposing to expand and revise the POE boundaries so that they include all the territory located within the current port limits as well as the entire Austin Straubel Airport. In addition, for ease of identification, the proposed boundaries would be identified by reference to specific roadways and waterways rather than by townships.
