NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING – Sanitary Sewer River Crossing

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a PUBLIC HEARING will be conducted on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2022 at 6:00 P.M in Council Chambers of City Hall located at 331 French St., Peshtigo, WI 54157 to provide the opportunity for public input on the route selection, planning, and construction of the Sanitary Sewer River Crossing.

The proposed project serves the City Sewer Service Area west of the Peshtigo River.  The replacement of the river crossing constructed in 1951 is needed to eliminate sanitary sewage overflows at the inlet structure that are due to the river crossing condition, capacity, and design.           

The Hearing will include a presentation on the design peak flow, hydraulic analysis, alternative route locations and piping arrangements evaluated, and environmental impact.  The proposed project is expected to increase City Sewer Department debt.  The operation and maintenance costs are not expected to increase.  The capital costs for the proposed project will be financed by principal forgiveness and a low interest loan from the Wisconsin Clean Water Fund Program.  It is expected that the fixed user charge for a residential sewer user may increase approximately $50 per year.

Detailed information on the proposed project is available for onsite inspection at Peshtigo City Hall.

Persons and/or organizations wishing to make a statement on the proposed project will be asked to identify themselves and their respective interest at the Public Hearing.  Written statements regarding the subject of the Public Hearing will be accepted until 10 days after the date of the Public Hearing at Peshtigo City Hall, 331 French St., Ste. A, Peshtigo, WI 54157, Attention: Mr. Thomas Gryzwa, Water and Sewer Committee Chairman.

From the Office of the Mayor

As Mayor, I am proud to welcome you to the City of Peshtigo’s official website. Peshtigo is historically known as “The City Rebuilt from Ashes”, as it had the worst recorded forest fire in North America, claiming over 1,000 lives.

I invite you to join us for our city celebrations and events, Bands at Badger, Christmas in July, Peshtigo River Blues, and our Peshtigo Historical Day. Please check our calendar and the Chamber of Commerce website for dates and information on these and other events.

We are really looking for a hardware store to operate in our City.  There are several properties available and I, as Mayor, will do everything I can to assist anyone who wants to locate a hardware store here in Peshtigo.

Peshtigo is growing rapidly as one of the most industrious small cities around. In the past 17 years, Peshtigo has developed a 241 acre Industrial Park and privately owned lots. To compliment expansion, the City has two loans available (R.L.F. and U.D.A.G.) which exist to provide business and industry financial assistance to locate, expand, and continue operations in the City.

Peshtigo is a great place to start or expand a business.  We are proud that our local government and elected officials work with area businesses to help with both new ventures and expansion.  We have commerical and industrial properties available at a reasonable price (click here for listings).  In addition there are several privately owned properties in and near the City.  With the help of the Peshtigo Area Economic Development Corporation, (PAEDC). We are confident that we can find something that meets your needs.  The Peshtigo area is also served by the Marinette County Association for Business and Industry, Inc.  The MCABI serves as a business resource for Marinette County and provides valuable information.

Because I am an avid fisherman and hunter, I appreciate the luxury of having the Peshtigo river flow thru the heart of the City. This allows me to catch various species of fish without leaving the City limits and hunt without driving great distances.

Personally, I feel Peshtigo is the perfect place to live, work, raise a family, vacation, and retire. We have an excellent school system, Police Department, Fire Department, City Crew, Parks program, and yet have a low tax base compared with most cities our size.
