Advanced Disposal has changed to GFL Environment

What does this mean for the Village as the customer? Short answer is nothing, the cans, dumpsters and trucks will still display Advance Disposal. There have been a few shortcomings with the changeover but believe we have rectified these issues. We now anticipate smooth collections and service from here forward.
As a reminder here are a few tips:
1. Cans must be out by 6:00am on Mondays for collection. Placing the carts by the street for pickup on Sunday evening is suggested.
2. Carts should be positioned as close as possible to the street with the handles and wheels facing away from street.
3. Please keep 6 feet of clearance between carts and other objects.
4. Large items that do not fit in the cart can be taken to the recycle center on Saturdays.
5. The trash pickup is billed on the water bill, which is a flat fee for all residents. Meaning if you fill each and every cart weekly or only use it once a month the fee is the same. This fee is not optional.
6. Small items that can be put into the carts but brought to the recycle center is paid for twice. Once on the monthly bill and once when the recycle center container is emptied. Usage of the residential carts is highly recommended and encouraged.
Any comments, concerns or questions can be sent to the Director of Municipalities 715-758-8779.

2021 Village Budget

General Fund | TIF Budget | Resolution

Property Revaluation

The Village property tax bill you receive each year, is based on the total assessment of your property. The assessment is a value assigned by the Village Assessor, and is based on similar houses throughout the Village. When the overall values of properties fall out of compliance, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue require municipalities to perform a revaluation of all properties. A revaluation means that the Village Assessor will physically visit and revaluate all properties in the Village. The Village of Bonduel will be performing a complete revaluation of all properties in the Village. The last revaluation was done in 2011.

The Village of Bonduel has contracted with Assessor, Mr. David Schmidt, to update all assessment records in the Village. Beginning in August, Mr. Schmidt will start visiting properties to perform interior/exterior inspections. This revaluation process will take several months to complete with inspections continuing into 2021. The Assessor may also be taking pictures of your property from the street for Village property records. Mr. Schmidt will be reaching out to all property owners to schedule an appointment to do an inspection.

Thank You for your cooperation with the revaluation.

Homeowners Insurance Coverage for Fire Dept. Services

     Responding to a major structure fire entails significant costs - trucks, equipment, materials and firefighters' labor to name a few. After a fire, local fire departments send bills for their services to the homeowner to recoup these costs. MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES PROVIDE NO MORE THAN $500 OF COVERAGE FOR A FIRE DEPARTMENT BILL. Call your insurance agent to confirm whether or not your homeowner's policy provides coverage for a fire department bill and to learn what level of coverage is available. The additional premium to add this coverage to your policy is minimal & will reduce the strain on your finances and the anxiety to you & your family after suffering an unforeseen catastrophe.

The Village of Bonduel is an equal opportunity employer and provider.
