Weekly News Blast: Tomorrow is our annual Tire Day and Choose to Reuse Event. The latter is a “free cycle” program. Bring any useable item that you can no longer use but you think someone else can (think free rummage sale). Tires of all sizes are accepted for a fee and there is no limit to the # of tires. Hopefully, everyone received a bright yellow postcard with the prices. Hope to see you tomorrow! Thanks are extended this week to Jerry Reinwand for completing road sweeping, Steve Dobeck who started grading, and Garry Saeger and Supervisor Doug Steltenpohl for partially completing the spring road inspections. The Spring newsletter was completed this week and sent to the printer. Expect one in your mailbox in a week or so. The Plan Commission met this week, finished its revisions to the Zoning Ordinance, and resumed work on the Sign Ordinance. Treasurer Greg Hakala reported that the Town received $2,294.89 from the 2023 Recycling Grant that Clerk Stefanie Schlapa recently completed. Everyone is keeping busy, that’s for sure… Enjoy the beautiful weather, Sharon

Weekly News Blast

This week the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Vista Sands Solar project was released. You are encouraged to comment on this draft EIS by June 14, 2024, when the comment period ends. Please use the Public Service Commission (PSC) docket number 9820-CE-100 on all e-mail and correspondence. Written comments should be addressed to: Anna Edmunds Environmental Review Coordinator Public Service Commission P.O. Box 7854 Madison, WI 53707-7854 (608) 266-8950 Comments may also be submitted electronically.

 More than 100 individuals commented during the Environmental Scoping period some months ago – prompting the PSC to require an Environmental Impact Statement rather than the standard Environmental Assessment. This is a rare occurrence for the PSC; the first since 2008/ It was due, in part to the Buena Vista Wildlife Area – the largest grassland complex east of the Mississippi River. The Town of Grant is different in many ways, but this area makes us especially unique.  

 Our very own Town resident Joe Riederer recently produced a short video highlighting the wildlife of Buena Vista Wildlife Area. I am delighted to include his remarkable photography in this week’s news:

 Enjoy, Sharon
