Please be advised the fishing pier and attached canoe/kayak launch located at Gateway Park, on South Biron Drive, is undergoing some revision and is closed at this time. We hope to have the project completed soon.
 
In-Person Absentee Voting -
Residents may vote an absentee ballot in-person at the Municipal Center, during normal business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning July 28 through August 7. Photo ID is required and you must be registered to vote in the Village. No ballots may be taken outside the building.
 
Requesting Absentee Ballots By Mail -
The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is at 5 p.m. the Thursday before the election. Using the MyVote website, look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. Photo ID is required at the time of the request. When you receive the ballot and have voted, insert the ballot in the return envelope provided. Please be sure a witness signs the absentee envelope and writes their address on the space provided. Without that information, the ballot will be rejected. BALLOTS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE POLLING PLACE BY 8:00 P.M. ON ELECTION DAY, AUGUST 10TH.
 
Utilities Rate Increase -
Please be advised a three percent (3%) rate increase will go in effect July 13, 2020 for water/wastewater use.
 
Brush Pickup -
Brush pickup is the last week of each month from April through October. All brush must be piled in one direction and placed parallel to the road. Brush cannot be over 8 feet in length and must be piled away from mailboxes, lawn ornaments, street lights, signs, power poles or any other object that would prohibit pickup. Leaves and yard debris is not brush and will not be picked up on the brush pickup schedule listed here. The Village crew will not pick up trees, large piles of branches, tree limbs or logs larger than 10 inches in diameter. Brush piles shall be no larger than 4 feet high, 6 feet wide and 10 feet long. Piles shall be placed by the side of the road in an orderly fashion with branches stacked in the same direction. If you have a tree service cut down trees they must haul away what they've cut down. If you currently have trees, limbs or logs on your property you will need to take them to a compost site yourself. City of Wisconsin Rapids compost passes are for sale at the Biron Municipal Center for $50 each
 
Building Permits Required -
Building permits are required for nearly all building and remodeling projects including furnace and air conditioner installations. Permits are always required for a roof, driveways, fences, and sheds. Please apply for the permit in the Village Clerk's office. Work done prior to obtaining a permit, including early start permits, will result in the permit fee being doubled. Visit the Permits and Forms page for further information.
