PINE STREET SANITARY SEWER REHAB PROJECT
Kruczek Construction will begin replacing the Pine Street sanitary sewer main starting Monday, September 26th. We anticipate the project to be completed in 3 to 4 weeks. Crews will start at the intersection of Alley #1 and Pine Street (by the post office) then proceed north. Pine Street will be open to local traffic ONLY as conditions allow, but parking will be restricted during the construction period. Evening and overnight street parking will be allowed, but all vehicles must be removed by 7:00 a.m.
During the milling phase of the project, which will take place Monday, September 26th and Tuesday, September 27th, vehicles will not be allowed to park on Pine Street for any reason. Any vehicles illegally parked on Pine Street will be subject to towing at the owners expense. Additional parking can be found behind the post office, in the Village public parking lot.

POLITICAL GROUP MAILINGS
With the November election just around the corner, political groups will be stepping up their efforts to get citizens registered to vote and/or vote absentee. Some of these mailings will be postcards, voter registration forms, or absentee ballot applications with our return address pre-printed on it. Instructions often direct you to “just sign your name and drop in the mail.” PLEASE LOOK AT THESE FORMS VERY CLOSELY. Proof of Residency is required to be submitted along with a voter registration. Proof of Identification, also known as Photo ID, is required when requesting an absentee ballot. These pieces of information may not be promoted in their mailings but are REQUIRED in order for your voter registration or absentee ballot request to be processed.
If you receive such a mailing on behalf of a family member who may be deceased or no longer lives in the Village please know that it was not generated by the Village of Hortonville.
The best way to prepare yourself for the upcoming elections is to verify your voter information at myvote.wi.gov. This useful website will provide you with sample ballots, voter registration status, and polling locations.
