Village Offices Closed to the Public

As a precaution, effective immediately all offices within the village are closed to the public due to the COVID19 virus. This includes all meetings and committees are postponed until further notice. This is in effort to reduce all physical contact.

The day to day operations will continue. Meaning the municipality office and clerk's office will continue to do the day to day operations but the offices will remain closed to the public and will only be available via phone or email. Payments can still be made by drop box, bank or online. The recycle center will remain open as of now.

COVID-19 & ABSENTEE VOTING

Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, voters in the Village of Bonduel are strongly urged to vote absentee for the upcoming April 7, 2020 Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary.

Out of respect for the health and safety of our employees and the community, the Village has decided to close all municipal buildings to the public, effective immediately until further notice.

While Village Hall is closed to the public, the option to curbside in-person absentee vote is still available to our residents, Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM. If you choose to in-person absentee vote, please call the office to set up a time to vote. Once the time is set with the office, park near the front door of Village Hall. Staff will then come out at your scheduled time and assist you with this process.

As it stands today, the polls will be open on Election Day (April 7, 2020) in the Village of Bonduel for those who need them. However, it is our recommendation, that if possible, residents request an absentee ballot be sent to them via mail. Requests for absentee ballots and voter registration can be done by visiting www.myvote.wi.gov to submit an online request. If you do not have access to the website, please call our office and we can send you an application for an absentee ballot in the mail.

Acting by Wednesday, March 18, 2020 is especially important for anyone who also needs to register to vote by mail. If your name or address has changed since you last voted, you need to register with your current information.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we do our part to help limit the exposure to our community.

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.
