Annual Meeting - The Annual Meeting will be held at the Town Hall on April 15, 2020 at 6:30 PM.

CHANGE IN Garbage & Recycling -  The Town Board has changed the hours and times for drop-off of garbage and recycling items. The reason for the change is the Town has been incurring additional fees for contaminated recycling dumpsters. We cannot continue to absorb those fees. These days and times will be effective January 1, 2020. All garbage and recycling dumpsters will be locked during non-drop-off hours. Cameras will be installed at the Town Hall to monitor the drop-off site. Anyone violating the new days and times will be subject to a fine. This is the Towns first option to correct this problem. This will be monitored for several months to see if the issue has been resolved.  The second option if option one does not work, will be to go to curbside pick-up. The curbside pick-up fee of approximately $25.00 per month will be added to all property owners tax bill at the end of each year.  For multi-family residences, each residence will be required to have their own dumpster.   If you are already contracted with a curbside pick-up hauler, other than Waste Management, you will need to cancel your contract with them.  All Town residences will be required to utilize Waste Management for curbside pickup if option #1 does not work.  Businesses are exempt from curbside pickup. We are hoping not to have to go to option two. New hours for disposal are Saturday’s from 8 AM to 11 AM. and Wednesday’s from 4 PM to 6 PM. $1.50 for 15 gallon or less, $2.50 for 15 - 33-gallon bag, $3.00 for over 33 gallon bags. A dumpster for scrap metal will also be available during these new hours. Do not place bags on ground next to the dumpsters.

Recycling - All items must be cleaned before you deposit them. No plastic bags of any kind can be put in the recycling dumpster. We also recycle paper and cardboard. Cardboard boxes should be broken down before putting in the dumpster.  Refuse and recyclable material placed in collection carts or dumpsters for collection, or otherwise set out for collection, may not be removed by any person or entity other than a resident or agent of the premises from which the item came, or by the authorized waste hauler.

Census – The Census Bureau will be conducting the Census in 2020. Mailings will be coming out in March. You can respond via the Census website or mail back your completed form. Every person counts.

Mayville EMS Information - Ambulance services provided by the City of Mayville are billed to the patient’s insurance. Sometimes insurance companies will send the payment directly to the patient and not the City. Should you receive a check from an insurance company, do not use those funds for personal use. You will receive an invoice from the City (or our ambulance billing service) requesting those funds be sent to the City. You will then need to arrange payment either via personal check or credit card. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Here is some information about stroke.  The acronym for identifying stroke symptoms is F.A.S.T.

F = Face drooping: Ask the person to smile. Does one side droop?
A = Arm weakness: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
= Speech difficulty: Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred?
= Time to call 9-1-1: If the person shows any of these signs, call 9-1-1 immediately. Stroke treatment can begin in the ambulance.

 

You can greatly reduce your risk for stroke by making lifestyle changes to help control your blood pressure and cholesterol level and, in some cases, by taking medication.
