WISCONSIN’S BEST TASTE ON TAP
Officials of the Wisconsin Rural Water Association (WRWA) have found the best-tasting water in Wisconsin. On Thursday March 26, 2015 a state-wide competition was held in an effort to identify the best tasting water in the state and, hopefully, the nation.
The contest was held at the annual WRWA Technical Conference in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where over 1,200 water & wastewater systems and industry personnel met for four days exchanging ideas and technology through technical sessions and exhibits. At this conference, water utilities from around the state submitted samples of their water, straight from the tap.
The winner of the event was Village of Reeseville, whose water sample was chosen by the judges as the most appealing based on a variety of criteria. “Because of the quality of Reeseville’s water, we have a good chance of winning the national taste contest in Washington, D.C.” stated Wisconsin Rural Water Association Executive Director Dave Lawrence.
The competition is part of a nationwide “Quality on Tap!” campaign to emphasize the high quality, safety and, consequently,taste of municipal tap water. Winners of state taste contests will compete in a national contest at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. This event is part of the Rural Water Rally, an annual legislative event for the 48 state affiliates of the National Rural Water Association. The Wisconsin Rural Water Association is a non-profit organization representing most of the water and wastewater systems in the state. Its mission: “Assisting, educating and representing our members in the wise use of water resources”.

Postal Service Ready For Tax Day
Deadline to file return is April 15
Reeseville WI— If you haven’t filed your taxes yet, the United States Postal Service is here to help. The deadline this year to file is Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
Because many customers file electronically, local Post Offices will maintain regular hours. For details on services and hours at neighboring Post Offices, please call 1-800-ASK-USPS (275-8777) or go to www.usps.com.
The price to mail a one-ounce First-Class letter is 49 cents; 21 cents for each additional ounce. The cost to mail a one-ounce First-Class large envelope is 98 cents; 21 cents for each additional ounce. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will not accept mail arriving postage due.
For last minute tax filers, the Self Service Kiosk (SSK) makes mailing and shipping easy and is available at select Post Offices. The SSK offers First-Class postage stamps, Certified Mail with Return Receipt, and Delivery Confirmation. Customers can weigh, mail letters and parcels using debit and credit cards when using the SSK. Next to the SSK is a collection box for depositing items. For tax filers, an April 15 postmark will be provided if the mail is deposited by the last pickup time posted on the SSK on April 15.
Tax mailing tips:
- Taxpayers are urged to avoid typical errors made when mailing returns such as: unsigned forms, not enough postage and depositing returns in collection boxes whose pickup time has passed.
- Use pre-addressed labels where possible. Write clearly. Take special care to ensure that handwritten envelopes are legible. Include a return address.
- Use First-Class postage --The Internal Revenue Service recognizes the First-Class letter postmark as proof a return was mailed on time.
- Apply proper postage. Weigh any return that feels heavier than one ounce.
- Rule of thumb: up to 5 sheets of 20-lb. paper using a number 10 envelope equals one ounce.
- The IRS does not accept postage due mail even if it has the April 15 postmark; tax returns with insufficient postage will be returned – penalizing taxpayers for filing late tax returns.
- Certified Mail with Return Receipt is a good choice for customers sending original receipts to tax agencies.
- Make certain bulky envelopes are securely sealed using tape.
- Postal regulations require that tax returns affixed with postage stamps weighing 13 oz. or more must be mailed at a Post Office. They cannot be mailed in a collection box.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
