FROM POLICE CHIEF
BILL RUTTEN www.kohlerpolice.com
Gunlocks: With gun deer hunting season right around the corner, the Kohler Police Department is reminding all those with firearms to use caution when handling firearms. Also, the Kohler Police Department continues to supply Masterlock trigger locks for all residents that want one. One free gunlock can be obtained from the police department just by stopping in. For those who have already obtained one in 2017, another can be obtained starting in 2018. In addition to the Masterlock trigger locks provided by the Kohler Police Department, a federal program, Project Childsafe continues to have locks available at the police department, while supplies last. These locks are the cable lock variety and anyone may request up to three of those for their guns too.
FROM PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR
THE AMERICAN CLUB
The main parking lot of the American Club will be renovated in early 2018. This renovation will prevent normal guest access of off Highland Drive. As such, starting in October, a temporary guest entrance will be created on Church Street on the west side of the American Club. Please drive safely during construction.
If you are considering installing a fence, please be reminded of the following process. The home owner needs to obtain a property survey, a copy of your deed, pictures of the areas impacted by the fence, fence specifications, a site plan and a cover letter explaining the scope of the project. This information is submitted to Kohler Co. for approval. Once approved by Kohler Co., the Village’s Planning Commission needs to review and approve as well. This process may take up to 3 months.
Leaf collection has started 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.
Yard Waste (green lid container) pickup will discontinue on December 5th. It will recommence in the spring.
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/Cubic Yard. Deliveries will be on Fridays only.
