Trash & Recycling Container Placement
Please remember to properly place your weekly trash and recycling containers along your street. The containers should be positioned four feet from the paved road surface for roads with ditches or as close to the backside of the curb as possible for roads with curb & gutter. Properly placing the containers allows the snow plowing crews to do a better job of plowing and also minimizes the potential for damage to the containers.
2014 Dog Licenses expire December 31st. The Town is reminding residents that by state law, the owner of a dog more than five (5) months old is required to obtain an annual dog license. You must bring in a current rabies vaccination certificate from a veterinarian in order to be issued a license.
Dog licenses are sold at the Town Hall, located at W2004 CTH S. Licenses issued after March 31, 2015 will pay an additional $5.00 late penalty per Wisconsin State Statutes.
