Village to send survey on recycling, waste services
Fox Point officials soon will mail a survey to residents regarding recycling and waste disposal services.
The Fox Point Village Board on March 10 approved the survey at a cost not to exceed $3,000 for printing and postage. The money will come from a contingency account in the village's general fund.
The village's contract with Veolia Environmental Services expires Dec. 31. In an effort to save money, officials have been considering roadside collection as an alternative to the front-door pickup that has been offered.
The survey asks whether residents would favor the change and also solicits feedback on the quality of the existing service.
Speed trailer to pinpoint hotspots in village
The Fox Point Village Board on March 10 approved a request by Police Chief Tom Czaja to purchase a speed trailer that will be placed in various locations throughout the community.
The department received a $4,000 grant to purchase the $7,490 trailer from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for its participation in the Booze and Belts enforcement program last fall. The remainder will be funded through an anonymous donation.
Czaja said data from the trailer could help determine further enforcement efforts.
