Halloween/Trick or Treat Guidelines

The Bonduel Village Board voted to continue with trick or treating in the Village this year with some minor changes. The Trick or Treating hours have been changed and will now be from 3pm to 6pm on October 31. The Village Board asks that residents and children follow the CDC guidelines for safe trick or treating. Below are some suggestions from the Bonduel PD staff:

If children or family members are exhibiting any signs or symptoms of COVID 19 (fever, cough, muscle aches, lost of taste or smell) we ask that your family not participate in Trick or Treating.

If you are currently under restrictions to not leave your residence from the county health department we ask that your family not participate in Trick or Treating this year.

Trick or treat in smaller groups and attempt to maintain social distancing when possible walking.

Please remember basic Halloween safety as well even in these COVID times that we are in. Children are asked to look both ways before crossing the street, masks will often impede vision for children so they need to be extra cautious while walking. Drivers please be vigilant to our little ones who are excited to go to the next house and may not be paying attention to traffic. Children are encouraged to wear items that will make them more visible to traffic such as light up glow necklaces, reflective bags or anything that will make them more visible to the motoring public.

Residents that wish to participate in trick or treating are asked to activate their outside porch lights (even in the day time) to show that you are participating in Trick or Treating. Children are asked to only trick or treat at residences that have their porch lights activated.

Water Main Flushing

Starting October 12th, Municipal Operations will be conducting water main flushing. This is a biannual procedure to ensure water quality. What you will see is fire hydrants being exercised throughout the village for that week. If you have discolored water after the flushing in your area, don't panic as this is normal. To eliminate this, run the cold water in your house until the water runs clear.

Leaf Collection

The Village of Bonduel Leaf Collection is scheduled to begin the 12th of October and end the 20th of November. Collection days are scheduled Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday of each week. Weather conditions, quantity of leaves and work priorities will dictate when each location will be serviced.

1. LEAVES ONLY! No foreign material or debris is allowed and will not be collected. Branches should not be included with leaf piles. Grass and branches can be dropped off at the recycling center any time, as the yard waste and brush area is open 24/7.
2. Please place leaf piles no further than 3 feet from the curb. Our equipment only reaches that distance. Do not place leaves in the street. In addition, do not place leaf piles within 3 feet of a mailbox, fire hydrant or power pole.

THANK YOU in advance for your cooperation in this process. If you have any questions, call the Municipal Operations office at 715-758-8779.

Property Revaluation

The Village property tax bill you receive each year, is based on the total assessment of your property. The assessment is a value assigned by the Village Assessor, and is based on similar houses throughout the Village. When the overall values of properties fall out of compliance, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue require municipalities to perform a revaluation of all properties. A revaluation means that the Village Assessor will physically visit and revaluate all properties in the Village. The Village of Bonduel will be performing a complete revaluation of all properties in the Village. The last revaluation was done in 2011.

The Village of Bonduel has contracted with Assessor, Mr. David Schmidt, to update all assessment records in the Village. Beginning in August, Mr. Schmidt will start visiting properties to perform interior/exterior inspections. This revaluation process will take several months to complete with inspections continuing into 2021. The Assessor may also be taking pictures of your property from the street for Village property records. Mr. Schmidt will be reaching out to all property owners to schedule an appointment to do an inspection.

Thank You for your cooperation with the revaluation.

Homeowners Insurance Coverage for Fire Dept. Services

     Responding to a major structure fire entails significant costs - trucks, equipment, materials and firefighters' labor to name a few. After a fire, local fire departments send bills for their services to the homeowner to recoup these costs. MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES PROVIDE NO MORE THAN $500 OF COVERAGE FOR A FIRE DEPARTMENT BILL. Call your insurance agent to confirm whether or not your homeowner's policy provides coverage for a fire department bill and to learn what level of coverage is available. The additional premium to add this coverage to your policy is minimal & will reduce the strain on your finances and the anxiety to you & your family after suffering an unforeseen catastrophe.
