FROM POLICE CHIEF BILL RUTTEN www.kohlerpolice.com
School is back in Session: Now that school is back in session, please remember to drive carefully on the streets around the school. The speed limit is 15 mph when children are present in the school zones. There is no stopping or standing of vehicles for the westbound traffic on School St., or on Church St. adjacent to the school. Also, for parents that drop children off in the morning do so close to the crosswalk so the students can be helped across the street. Students that are crossing in mid-block amongst the vehicles are harder to see and are not as safe. The safest location would be to drop students off on the north side by the canopy. Follow the aides’ directions for smooth traffic flow.
New Crossing Guard: You may notice a new crossing guard at CTH PP/Highland Dr. Lana Lensink, who helped out last year, has been hired as the new crossing guard for that intersection. Lana is a long time village resident and is looking forward to a good school year. This intersection is still going to have a crossing guard during the construction of the roundabout. Please greet Lana if you see her.
FROM PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR BRETT EDGERLE
Landscape Mulch: 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 plus tax. Deliveries will be on Fridays only.
Garbage Receptacles: 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 (grill).
Fire Hydrant Flushing and Water Valve Exercising: During the months of August and September, the Village Public Works Department will be exercising water valves. The Department will also be performing maintenance on fire hydrants and flushing the mains. The work will be performed Monday through Thursday. Residents should be aware that there will be periods of cloudy and discolored water as sediment and mineral deposits in the water mains are disturbed.
Building Permits: A reminder that building permits are required for new structures, additions, remodeling, accessory structures, pools, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, siding, roofing, fences, signs, modifications over $1,000 in market value, and driveways. Any questions about building permits and/or permit fees can be directed to Brett Edgerle at 459-3881 or email@example.com. Permit application forms are also available on our website – www.kohlervillage.org.
Highway PP Road Reconstruction: The Reconstruction of Highway PP is underway. The section of roadway currently under construction will be complete in late August or early September and it will be opened up at that time. Also at that time, the Highland Drive – Highway PP intersection will be closed for construction. Be mindful of detour signs during the changeover. Construction will likely be complete in October, weather depending.
