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. The contractor should should apply (pull) for the permit at the municipal clerk's office. By doing so, protection is offered for both parties. If the homeowner pulls the building permit for the contractor, they may be personally liable should there be an injury. As the homeowner, you may be unaware that the contractor may not be paying unemployment insurance, worker's compensation insurance, or carrying liability insurance, thus putting unknown liability on you. 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.
