Trick-or-Treat: The Kohler Police Department wants trick-or-treating to be fun and safe for everyone. To help that cause, Officer Hocevar will be holding a Safe Trick-or-Treat Awareness Program in the school for the younger students. He will be passing out trick-or-treat bags from the Police Department. During Trick-or-Treating, which will be on October 31st from 5-7pm, officers will hand out the glow necklaces to any child that wants one. The glow necklaces will make the children more visible as they are enjoying the night out. Choosing a costume where the kids are able to maintain good vision is also a very good idea.



Leaf collection started in September and will continue until December 1st. Leaves should be raked into the street along the curb in three-foot (3’) wide rows. No grass clippings, sticks, or other garden debris is allowed. The Public Works Department follows a schedule for leaf collection. Each week, the collection starts on the south end of the Village where the trees are more mature and produce more leaves. The route continues to the west and north sections of the Village. During the last part of October and early part of November we may only be able to get through the Village once a week due to the heavy leaf fall.


As a reminder, brush (tree branches) must be neatly piled in four-foot lengths. The maximum diameter is six inches. No brush with thorns will be picked up. Thorny material must be cut up and put in the cart with the green lid. Brush not complying will be tagged and not picked up.

On October 31st and November 7th, special Yard Waste collections will be held. After the green Yard Waste Cart is full, yard waste may be put into additional containers for collection. Place these containers on the curb adjacent to the standard containers.


Residents looking for landscape mulch are encouraged to call the Public Works Department at 459-3881. Mulch will be delivered to your home for $10 plus tax per cubic yard. Deliveries will be on Fridays only.
