Tip of the Week

The fall rainy season is upon us.  Help everyone out by keeping your culvert and ditch areas clear of leaves and debris.  Keeping water flowing helps prevent flooding and potential property damage.

Don't Forget

Fall has arrived, the wind is blowing and that means downed branches and leaves.  Did you know, there are only three (3) yard waste pickups left this year?!  The first of the final three is next week, October 10. 


Loose leaf collection will not begin until the week of Octoyard waste ber 17.  Remember, you must keep your loose leaves separate from your yard waste.  The Village collects leaves using a large collection vacuum.  Leaves mixed with yard waste can clog or damage the impeller, causing potential equipment issues.

A Powerful  Service


Recently, several areas of the Village have experienced power outage issues.  Village officials continue to communicate with WE Energies to ensure that permanent solutions will be reached and that the reliability of the system is strengthened.  


While the basis of the outage was high winds, some of the infrastructure is we energiescurrently in a more vulnerable state due to service changes.  As you may have noticed, We Energies has been working throughout the summer to replace outdated poles and wiring.  This work has been delayed due to crews moving south and east at various times to respond to hurricane disaster relief.  WE Energies officials have indicated they expect work to last through the end of the year, with final changes improving the overall service experience.  


If you do experience an outage, you are encouraged to contact WE Energies, as well as the non-emergency Police number 414-351-8800.
