THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
From our readers
Issue Date: June 14, 2017
To the Editor,
I would like to take a moment to thank the employees of the Village of Crivitz for their response to the severe storm that went through our community on Sunday afternoon. Without being called they were out within minutes of the storm passing checking for damaged homes, downed power lines and trees blocking the streets. Through resourceful thinking and using the tools and equipment available to them most, if not all of the blocked streets were open within hours of the storms passing.
There are some homes and businesses that still do not have electricity and I have been assured that Wisconsin Public Service has brought in additional crews to restore the power to these homes as soon as possible.
To those who have trees and limbs down in their yards, if you are able bring that brush to the growing pile at the fire station. This site is also for Town of Stephenson residents. We ask that the limbs and trunks be no more than 10 inches in diameter and no longer than 16 feet. This site will be available until June 26. After that date any brush may be taken to the Municipal Compost Site at north end of Gene Drive.
Those who have residences in the village and are unable to transport the brush to either of these sites, please place your brush alongside of the road and it will be picked up by the Village. We will pick up brush on Tuesday, June 20. Have the brush in piles along the street before 7 AM for pick up. The maximum size for limbs and trunks is the same as for drop off at the fire station.
Again, I thank our Public Works crew, Police Officers and Firefighters for their dedicated service to the citizens of our fine Village in cleaning up the debris from this storm. I also want to thank Jim Richlen of Richlen Excavating and his crew for coming in on Sunday to assist with the clean-up.
It is people like you who make me proud to be the President of the Village of Crivitz.
