Village Board votes to draft letter on Adams Street residence

Moratorium put in place on outside haulers at Boyd treatment plant


Boyd Wisconsin is cracking down on code violations, the Village Board opting to move against a property after several attempts to get the owner to clean up the same were ostensibly ignored. Listed to Chester Flees on County GIS property records, the home at 121 South Adams Street is in violation of public nuisance ordinance.
As such, the village board voted after closed session for village president Bob Geist to draft a letter to the property owner to abate the nuisance. Motion to draft said letter was made by Geist and seconded by trustee Casey Dorn.
As for residents in town with extra stuff to haul away, the village will have Spring cleanup May 10 and 11 at the village brush site. Hours for accepting loads on Friday May 10 are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with hours Saturday May 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Those disposing of items must be village residents and it is monitored.
Also in village news but up the street slightly, a moratorium has been put in place with regard to outside haulers at the wastewater treatment plant. The village board decision comes after village streets and utilities head Bob LaMarche reported excessive loads being dumped, as well as sand in the sludge at the plant.
While BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) numbers are currently good, concern that one test well was high with another further away from the plant better, have led to the idea that allowing outside haulers might not be worth it, with DNR numbers being submitted next month and a need to stay in compliance.
“No one’s hauling anything until I say so,” LaMarche said of outside haulers and the treatment plant. Talk was also made of studying Thorp and Cornell to see what they do with regard to accepting outside truck loads.
