With 6″ of rain in the past 24 hours, both lakes are under SLOW NO WAKE restrictions until further notice. All watercraft must operate at slow no wake speeds.
UPDATE 7/19/17: The current lake level is 4″ above Slow No Wake. It is estimated to take an additional 5-6 days to lift the SNW restriction. However, rain is in the forecast and any additional rainfall can delay lifting the SNW restriction due to higher lake levels.
Groot Industries will begin distribution of the new refuse and recycle toters beginning Monday, December 19th, 2016. We are asking all residents to bring their toters up to their house as soon as possible. Also, if you know your neighbor is an out-of-towner please be kind and bring theirs up to the house too. Advanced Disposal will be doing their last pick-up on the 27th and 29th of December, and pick-up of those toters to follow.
Public Works also wants to remind residents that garbage and recycle toters need to be removed from the road as soon as they are empty in order to provide for the plow trucks to clean the roads.
We have been informed by Kenosha County that tax bills have been mailed. With the new County-wide tax program being implemented, please be patient since we are learning this new system as we go. All payments must be made separately; therefore we will need a separate check for tax payments, sewer payments and pet licensing. Payments may be made in person, by mail, or left in the drop box in front of the Village Hall. First installments are due to the Village by January 31st, 2017 and second installments to Kenosha County by July 31st, 2017. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Hall.
The Presidential Election will be held TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8 at LAKEWOOD SCHOOL. Polls open from 7am to 8pm. Personal ID is required to vote. Don’t forget to register to vote- you can do so anytime between now and election day at Village Hall.
