Village to provide dumpsters for water-damaged items

Ozaukee Press Staff

The Fredonia Village Board took action on several matters last week, including providing dumpsters for the disposal of large water-damaged items from village residents.

The dumpsters will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday, Sept. 17, through Thursday, Sept. 20, across the street from the village garage at 420 Wheeler Ave.

The dumpsters may be used to dispose of water-damaged items from the recent heavy rains.

Items that may be disposed are those acceptable for disposal at a landfill but are too large to fit into normal garbage containers. Tires, televisions and electronic items will not be accepted.

Residents are asked to bring photo identification to provide proof that they are village residents.

For more information or for a detailed list of items that will not be accepted, call  Village Hall at 692-9125.

In other action:

The Village Board approved purchasing a circular fabric shade structure to go up on a one-acre village park near the post office on Regal Drive.

The 50-foot diameter structure will cost $27,962 and consists of a colorful canvas awning above a stainless steel structure.

Public Works Director Roger Strohm said the structure will be up during the warmer months, perhaps up to nine months out of the year, and will require minimal maintenance.

The fabric will be coated to resist its color from fading, he said.

The structure won’t be erected until spring, Strohm said. Footings and a concrete pad will likely be built this fall, at a cost of about $15,000, Strohm said. Installation of the structure next year will cost $18,950.

The as-yet-unnamed park will eventually have a small playground area, footpaths and perhaps a garden, Strohm said.

The board approved awarding to a Manitowoc company a contract to reconstruct Emmer Avenue at Lawrence Street and install a new water main there.

Kip Gulseth Construction Co. was awarded the contract on a base bid of $225,632. It was the lowest of seven bids, with $339,000 being the highest, Public Works Director Roger Strohm said.

Trustees voted to approve the contract unanimously.

Once construction starts, the street will be closed to through traffic for about three weeks but open to residents living there, Strohm said.

Fredonia Village Marshal Mike Davel told the Village Board that trick-or-treat in the village will be held this year from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Trick or treat is traditionally held in the village the Saturday before the Halloween holiday on Oct. 31, which this year lands on a Wednesday.

No action was necessary or taken by village trustees, none of whom raised objections to the date.
