Occasionaly, there is an issue or announcement related to town business that seems to rise to the need to make contact with as many citizens as possible. Our legal responsibility is to post in the three designated locations: Town Hall, Wine House, Allied Bank of Bluff Siding. Another way is to email those for whom we have an email address. Right now that is about 33% of our household units in the town. If you would like to be included but not now receiving any email messages from the town, please send your name and email address of choice to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to CAPX funds commissioned by the CAPX Advisory Committee, our Town Hall area (inside & outside) and the park area are now monitored by motion sensing cameras. This is for the safety and security of our citizens who utilize the hall and park. Images are only viewed in the event of an activity or event which needs to be revisited such as vandelism, injury, etc. The cameras have already helped resolve two issues that otherwise we would have had no clue as to what took place.
Do not forget that it is Wisconsin State Law that you must have a permit to possess and use fireworks in the state (fireworks that "leave the ground"). Permits are free and available by contacting the town chairman. Violaters may be charged and fined.
It has been estimated that the heavy rain and subsequent floodi conditions resulted in approximately $150,000 damage in the Town of Buffalo. Thankfully, we know of no injuries and limited damage to private homes and property. The roads, ditches, culverts and bridges experienced the worst of the rushing waters. Work on the damaged sites has already started and will likely take 4-6 weeks to accomplish assuming heavy rain does not happen again right away. A Disaster Declaration has been submitted and, hopefully, some relief funds will assist the town in completing the necessary work.
Your patience for road work as a result of the flood damage is requested and appreciated. A complete list of known damages has been developed and priority has to be given to those areas that are most dangerous and/or a threat for safety.
Special thanks to Scott Bunkowski for organizing a young group of athletes to pick up debris in the town park and hall area. That is much appreciated!
Guess what? Have a reunion, birthday party, graduation or just a plain ole family gathering? Are you aware the town hall is available for rent?
