Street Sweeper
Attention City Residents:

Thank you for your continued cooperation, support and help during the recent severe weather. Clean-up is slowly nearing completion but there are still a few things to accomplish. This Friday, August 9, 2019 the street sweeper will be out sweeping all the streets to remove all of the remaining debris from the severe weather. We politely ask that you allow for full access to the streets so they can be swept properly and efficiently. This will also help to open all of the catch basins better. Please also know there will be a public works staff member out today shoveling debris from catch basins. 

Thank you!
Storm Clean-Up
Good Afternoon City Residents, 

This weekend's serve weather stormed through our City and definitely left a mark. Thankfully, to my knowledge no serve injuries occurred during the weekend events. On a positive note I must commend our citizens for their neighborly values and support as I observed many offering a lending hand. Please know that the City has been working diligently throughout the weekend and nearly around the clock with various agencies assessing damage, maintaining safety and security and doing whatever possible to keep operations going. A hugh thank you to our Fire Department, Police Department, Ambulance Services, Public Works Department for their round the clock work tending to emergencies, keeping water and wastewater services operational and anyone else that offered a helping hand throughout the weekend and continuing yet this week. 

Today began the true start to clean-up within the City. Here is what is planned so you can be prepared and aware as a citizen. First, Public Works has prioritize places where debris removal is critical for operations and public safety. Second, because Governor Evers has declared a State of Emergency, I am submitting for funding which now opens up resources for me to request. With that being said, I will be setting up a one-time curb side pick-up for brush.  This pick-up will take place Monday, July 29th starting at 7am. 
All brush must be less than 10 feet in length and placed neatly, one direction at the curb of your residence. Only brush will be picked up. All other lawn debris such as leaves, grass clippings, etc. you will be responsible for removing yourself by taking to the City Yard Waste Site on Slough Road. Remember, you need a permit which only cost $1 and is good for the entire year and can be purchased at City Hall. 

Your continued patience is greatly appreciated noting we all are doing the very best we can with the resources we have considering all that took place this weekend with the severe weather. Together we all make the City of Weyauwega a great place to live.

Update from Administrator Schroeder
Happy Friday City Residents, 

I wanted to share an update with all of you in regards to what I have been working on over the last month in our city.  Now that the weather is starting to warm and cooperate slowly, curb appeal is a major focus. The public works staff is very busy cleaning up our parks, streets and city properties. The park shelters have been washed, new wood ships under all of the playground equipments are being installed, mowing and string trimming is taking place along with general clean-up throughout.  I would like to encourage residents to do the same on their properties.  One day each week I try to drive every street in the city and make a to-do list of projects that need to be addressed by city staff or ordinance violations by city residents.  One continual challenge is city residents blowing grass clippings and/or leaves or other debris into city street. This causes a major issue with our catch basins and water drainage on street and is an ordinance violation that will be enforced. 

I continually am working on an entire revitalization plan for the city.  Last Thursday I had the great privilege of meeting with nearly 50 business people from the City of Weyauwega at the Weyauwega Chamber's Business after 5 social held at City Hall.  I highlighted some of the things I want to work on with them collaboratively to attract new business to our city.  I will be joining Connected Communities and will ask for volunteers to attract new business to our city.  Joining Connected Communities will provide numerous resources and contacts to help grow our community.  There is finally a little progress happening with two vacant buildings on Main Street.  I will keep you informed on that progress as appropriate. 

The grocery store continues to be a work in progress.  I was advised this week that the attorneys on both sides are working on language revisions.  Hopefully they will speed up so we can have a store soon. 

There is much, much more happening behind the scenes but I want to keep these updates brief with only major highlights. I look forward to sharing more next month. 

Thank you for your time.

From City Administrator Schroeder
Happy Friday City Residents, 

I wanted to share an update with all of you in regards to what I have been working on the last several months associated to revitalizing our downtown. This has been a very difficult process due to the inability to reach vacant property/building owners on Main Street. I have sent letters to addresses we have on file and even a certified letter with no response. Unfortunately, we do not have any phone or email information for those. There has been people that have stopped into my office inquiring on buildings and sharing their ideas with me but the current owners don't have "For Sale" signs on their buildings and more or less have abandoned them which is very difficult to work through. 

Please know that I am using every avenue I can to try and connect with these people to learn what their plan may be for their property or to try and get "For Sale" signs up to help bring new businesses in. If you have any ideas or information that could help I would be very willing to talk with you in person or feel free to call or email me. I will also begin talking to current business owners on Main Street for some ideas and feedback. Please know we all need to be a team and work together to make the downtown grow; our conversations need to be positive and productive. 

The grocery store is still a work in progress. There was a message posted on our social media from Lance Bauer on Tuesday stating that he is very eager to be here but has gone through incredible hurdles over the last year in trying to purchase the property. He continues to work at it and will keep us posted. 

Thank you for your time.
