Fall is a great time to make needed repairs to your mailbox. Some residents may have already received a notice from their mail carrier that their mailbox needs repair. If repairs are not made within the specified time frame on the notice, you may end up losing your delivery service and having to make a trip to the post office to retrieve your mail.
To make sure your mailbox is in good condition and meets postal requirements, check out the Mailbox Installation Guidelines. This guide will help you meet postal regulations and provide tips to keep your mailbox, mail carrier, and motorists safe.
Wild Parsnip - an invasive problem
Central Wisconsin is experiencing increasing problems with Wild Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa). Wild parsnip is an invasive plant. It grows in sunny areas: fence rows, roadsides, uncultivated fields, meadows, woods edges, pastures, prairies and restorations. It adapts to almost any open upland habitat and will push out native plants.
Wild Parsnip presents a very significant danger because contact with the plant's sap causes a painful, blistering skin rash. As blisters heal, a reddish-brown discoloration marks the site. These marks can persist for months to several years
Getting rid of wild parsnip on your property can be challenging, but is important to your safety and the health of our ecosystem. To help you deal with this invasive and dangerous plant, Portage County Extension has an area of their website dedicated to identifying and removing wild parsnip. Learn more at Wild Parsnip ID & Control. Or visit the DNR Wild Parsnip page.
The Village of Maine remains committed to the safety of our residents, visitors, and staff. At this time access to the Village office is limited. Should you need to see one of the staff, please call ahead to make an appointment at 715-675-5607 or e-mail email@example.com. When visiting the Village office you are asked to follow Village of Maine Policy and wear a face covering.
