Many of you are in the process of raking leaves and cleaning up your yards. While burning is not strictly prohibited, Town residents are allowed to have recreational type fires in your yards as long as they follow Town Ordinances. Please be mindful of your neighbors when planning to burn yard waste. A lot of us are working from home these days and plan to be outside enjoying the nice weather when possible. For a list of regulations, please click on the town’s ordinances. Per the Burn Ordinance, any large burns, such as fields, large brush piles, etc. must get prior permission from the Fire Department to burn. At this time, the department is not granting that permission due to COVID-19. Paper lawn bags are available at all the local improvement stores, and they will be picked-up with your recycling materials beginning this month. In addition, the Wisconsin DNR currently has a burn ban on the land under their controls.
