Welcome to Reeseville

APRIL 2014

 

The Village of Reeseville Board Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month beginning at 7:00pm.  The first 15 minutes are for public in-put.  If you have something you would like on the agenda, please contact the Village Clerk @ 927-5785. All Village residents are encouraged to attend.  The Village Board minutes for the month are included in each Newsletter.  All Board minutes are not official until approved at the following months meeting.



DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS

It’s still likely that we will get more snow so please remember sidewalks must be shoveled within 24 hours of a snowfall. No snow can be shoveled or blown into the street.
Large trash such as furniture, mattresses etc. may be put out to the curb for regular pickup ONLY on the 1st Friday of each month.
 
THE VILLAGE BURN PILE IS PERMANENTLY CLOSED

Due to the expansion of the Reeseville Waste Water Treatment facility, the Village Burn Pile is permanently closed.
No refuse of any kind can be taken to the previous area. This is now private property and therefore you would be trespassing also.

BRUSH & YARD WASTE

Brush & Yard Waste pickup will begin on April 7th and will continue on the First and Third Monday of each month.  All branches must be bundled for one person to pick up.   All grass and leaves must be bagged.
When mowing your lawn, do not blow grass into the street!! It clogs the storm sewers resulting in flooding the streets during a rainstorm.


CONGRESSMAN MEETS

Congressman James Sensenbrenner is looking forward to holding office hours at the Reeseville Village Hall on Monday, April 14th at 9:45am. 

The meeting length is dependent upon the number of people who attend, but will not last longer than 30 minutes.

POST OFFICE NEWS

Spring is here.  April Fool!!  Still looks like winter to me.
If you haven't filed your taxes yet, the Reeseville Post Office is here to help.  The deadline this year to file is Tuesday, April 15.
The price to mail a one-ounce First-Class letter is 49¢; 21¢for each additional ounce.  The cost to mail a one-ounce First-Class large envelope is 98¢; 21¢ for each additional ounce.  The internal Revenue Service will not accept mail arriving postage due.
For tax filers, an April 15 postmark will be provided if the mail is deposited by the last pickup time posted on the box the return is deposited into.
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 is past.
  • 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 lobby is open Monday thru Saturday      6:00am to 6:00pm
Window hours are Monday thru Friday        7:00am to 10:30am & 12:30pm to 3:30pm
