COMMUNITY ROOM IS AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC USE

The Community Room at the Village Hall is available to use for events.   It is a great location to host family get togethers, baby or bridal showers, card clubs, coffee groups, etc.   There is a kitchenette and eight round tables that seat forty people.  Please call the Sherri at 608-879-2004 for more information.

  CHRISTMAS TREES

John's Disposal will be picking up Christmas Trees with the January bulk pick up on Saturday, January 6th.  Public Works will not be picking up trees this year as the yard waste site is closed for the season.

 WINTER PARKING

There is no parking on Village Streets until after the streets are plowed.  The Police Department does give out tickets for those that are parked in the street.

SIDEWALKS

The Village has ordinances that require sidewalks to be clear of snow and ice within 24 hours after snow ceases to accumulate in residential areas.   Commercial Areas have until 9:00 a.m. Monday thru Saturday and until Noon on Sunday.  The Village can serve/post a 2 hour notice on the property if it is not shoveled.  After two hours, the Village will shovel the sidewalk and the owner of the property will be billed.

FIRE HYDRANTS

Please keep hydrants clear of snow.  A path to the hydrant from the curb is ideal. This saves crucial time for the fire department in the event of a fire.    Help your neighbor out if they need help keeping it clear.

 

PAVILION RESERVATION AT PURDY PARK

DOWNTOWN IMPROVEMENTS ...The Economic Development Committee is working on upgrading the downtown.   We will be upgrading the corner at the old library. This fall, stamped concrete will be laid, benches, tables, a bike rack, and landscaping will also be done.  The focus is to improve the downtown in our community.   We are working with Alliant to see about getting decorative street lights in the downtown area as well.  We are excited that The Haven coffee shop is opening in August.  The Sassy Farm Chicks quilt business will be opening in September.  The Economic Development Committee is driven to draw business to the downtown and Business Park.    We have two vacant spots downtown and lots available in the Business Park. There are outside facade grants available for businesses located outside of the Business Park as well.  Please call the Village Hall for more information.
