FROM POLICE CHIEF BILL RUTTEN www.kohlerpolice.com
Trick-or-Treat: The Kohler Police Department wants trick-or-treating to be fun and safe for everyone. To help that cause, Community Resource 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 Oct. 31st from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., officers will hand out 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.
Randy Romanoski, owner of Sheboygan Auto Group, has kindly donated the use of a Chevrolet Impala to the Kohler Police Department. This vehicle will be used by the new Community Resource Officer Matt Hocevar at the Kohler Schools. Pictured with the vehicle are Kohler School Superintendent Quynh Trueblood, Randy Romanoski, and Kohler Police Chief William Rutten.
FROM PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR BRETT EDGERLE
Leaf collection will start on or about October 1st and continue until December 7th. 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 November 6th and 13th 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. No container shall weigh more than 50 pounds.
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.
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).
A reminder that building permits are required for new structures, additions, remodeling, accessory structures, pools, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, siding, roofing, fences, signs, and modifications over $1,000 in market value. Any questions about building permits and/or permit fees can be directed to Brett Edgerle at 459-3881 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Permit application forms are also available on our website – www.kohlervillage.org.
Please be mindful that when building or digging near your property line, it is the project owner’s responsibility to accurately locate and define the property line prior to construction.
HIGHWAY PP ROAD RECONSTRUCTION
The Reconstruction of Highway PP is well underway. Be mindful of detour signs and drive defensively. Construction will be complete in November.

Wednesday, August 29 brought fun and excitement to the Youth Center and Pool as we celebrated going back to school with our Sneak Peek After-Hours Event. The event was well attended and kids had fun swimming, playing dodgeball, socializing, eating, listening to music and simply hanging out and enjoying the last days of summer. With school back in session as of the 4th of September students of all ages are continuing to find their way to the Youth Center. This is a place for kids to reconnect, relax and even hope for a little luck as they enter our daily drawing for a chance to win a special treat. Thanks to our youth worker staff who has been providing a fun and enjoyable environment, creating snacks and keeping the place in tip top shape.
