Residential Recycling is Changing

The City of Viroqua has increased residential recycling to every other week starting in November.  New schedules are available on the Southwest Sanitation website http://www.swsanitation.net/viroqua or pick up at City Hall.  The monthly surcharge will be changing from $8.90 to $10.05 on the water/sewer bills.

View Announcement Leaf Vac is out

The Leaf vac is now out so you can rake your leaves to the edge of the street without bagging.  They will go around multiple days of the week. Brush/compost pickup will still be on Fridays.

View Announcement Sidewalk Hazards – Orange Paint

What do the orange and white painted X’s mean on my sidewalk?

In 2016, the City of Viroqua identified sidewalk hazards throughout the City. The Americana with Disabilities Act defines a ‘trip hazard’ as any vertical change of over 1/4 inch or more at any joint or crack. Last year the City hired a contractor called Safe Step to cut the concrete it in order to remove trip hazards. Those hazards that were not cut due to concrete type, thickness or size of cut needed were put on a replacement list.

This past week the City has begun marking these remaining panels with either orange or white X’s. An orange X means the replacement is at the cost of the homeowner and will be repaired by Augelli Concrete Excavating before the end of May. Once receiving the bill, homeowners have the option of paying the full bill or, if no payment is received by November 2017, the bill will be place on the property’s tax roll. A white X means that the replacement is the City’s responsibility and City crews will be repairing it this summer.

The City of Viroqua thanks you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any further questions please contact me at 637-7154 ext. 20 or sgrainger@viroqua-wisconsin.com.
