Prescription Drug Disposal: The Kohler Police Department has the secure drug disposal box in its entrance. The box is available for all prescription drugs and over the counter medication in their original containers. The box cannot be used for illegal drugs, needles, syringes, thermometers or any hazardous materials. The box was obtained through a partnership with Sheboygan County to keep drugs from being flushed down toilets or dumped into landfills. Please utilize the box for any old drugs to keep them out of the wrong hands and to be disposed of properly. We will again be participating in a drug take back day which is scheduled for April 28th; however, you can drop off your drugs anytime.
Vacation Checks: Don’t forget that if you are planning to go away on spring break or at any time during the year, that you may have the Kohler Police Department check your house while you are gone. Residents can request a vacation check on-line through the Kohler Police Department’s web page www.kohlerpolice.com, by stopping by the department or calling. If you call outside of regular business hours you may leave a message too. In your message just include your name, address, duration of your vacation and any other pertinent information that we may need to know. Some pertinent information may include lights that are on timers, alarms, and names of persons that may stop by or keyholders. Any other questions about this service, please call the police department.
FROM PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR
Yard waste (green lid cart) pickup starts on Tuesday, April 3rd. On April 3rd, 10th & 17th, Special Yard Waste collections will be held. After the green Yard Waste Cart is full, yard waste may be put into additional containers (not bags) for collection. Place these containers on the curb adjacent to the standard containers.
Do Not rake leaves and debris into the street. Curbside leaf collection is in the fall only.
Brush pickup (tree branches) starts on Tuesday, April 3rd. Brush 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.
Residents are cautioned against flushing disposal wipes down the toilet. Although many wipes are labeled “disposable” or “flushable”, quite often they clog sewer laterals and mains. The preferred method of disposal is to bag the wipes and place in your garbage receptacle.
THE AMERICAN CLUB
The main parking lot of the American Club is being renovated, preventing normal guest access off of Highland Drive. Please note that a temporary guest entrance has been created on Church Street on the west side of the American Club. Please drive carefully and be aware of the construction traffic.
To find out if a snow emergency is in effect for the Village, call 459-3881 anytime, or check the Kohler website at www.kohlervillage.org. There is no parking on village streets during a snow emergency. A snow emergency is called when accumulation is expected to exceed 4 inches. Snow emergencies are typically called from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm to give the snowplows an opportunity to clear the streets with no cars present.
Winter is here. Here are some reminders on Village snow removal ordinances and policies.
- Please remember to shovel your sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowfall event.
- Do not blow or shovel snow back into the street.
- Please remove vehicles from the street when the plows are in operation.
SNOW REMOVAL AROUND MAILBOX KIOSKS
It is the residents’ responsibility to have the snow removed around the mailbox kiosks. The Postal Service will not deliver mail if the carrier is not able to reach the unit – the front as well as the backside. Someone in the neighborhood needs to take the initiative to remove the snow; or the responsibility can be shared. The Village is not responsible to keep these areas clear of snow.
Residents are encouraged to store their garbage receptacles in discrete locations. Ideally they should be stored in a garage. Other suitable areas include side/back yards, or any other area screened from public view. Please be reminded that all containers must be stored with the lids securely closed and away from any heat source, such as a grill.
Residents are reminded to pick up after their pets and to dispose of the waste appropriately.
As a reminder, Building Permits are required for all residential projects involving construction, heating, plumbing and electrical work that has a value greater than $1,000. Home additions, garages, accessory buildings, decks and other exterior modifications need Kohler Co. and Village of Kohler Plan Commission review. Visit our website at www.kohlervillage.org or call the Public Works Department at 459-3881 for more information.
