Winter Brush Collection

Winter brush will be collected bi-weekly beginning October 29, 2018, weather permitting. Please have your brush out by the terrace by 7:00 AM  on Monday, with the cut ends toward the road. Please leave branches as long as possible as this will save you and our crews' time. Brush is considered limbs and branches from trees and large shrubs. All other woody vegetation such as plant stalks, small bush trimmings, etc. will not be collected. This type of material can be taken to the compost site on Highway Q south of the Village. If you have a contractor trim or prune your trees or bushes, they are responsible for the removal of the brush. If you have any questions about the collection, please call the Public Works/Parks Garage at (608) 849-5892.

Halloween Safety


Waunakee Halloween Trick or Treating
Wednesday, October 13, 2018
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Please keep everyone safe this year on Halloween, drive extra cautious in the neighborhoods and watch out for pedestrians. The following are some safety tips for parents and children:
  1. Teach your children how to properly cross a street. Only cross streets at crosswalks.
  2. Help your child pick out or make a costume that has eye holes large enough for good peripheral vision.
  3. For greater visibility during dusk and darkness, decorate or trim costumes with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car's headlights. Bags or sacks should also be light colored or decorated with reflective tape.
  4. To easily see and be seen, children should also carry flashlights or glow sticks.
  5. Costumes should be short enough to prevent children from tripping and falling.
  6. If your child is carrying a prop, make sure the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen on.
  7. Know the route your kids will be taking if you aren't going with them.
  8. The safest idea is to have an adult accompany kids. If you're not with the kids, be sure to set a time they will be home by. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time.
  9. Children should not enter homes or apartments unless they are accompanied by and adult.
  10. Teach your kids about not getting into strangers cars or talking to strangers, no matter what the person says to them. Explain to them as simply as you can that some adults are bad and want to hurt children, that they should never go into a house that they don't know, get into a car or go anywhere with a stranger. Also, tell them what to do should this happen, to scream as loud as they can to draw attention and to run away as fast as they can to someplace safe.

Barrels on Parade

Thanks to Tammy and Paul for purchasing one of our Public Arts Barrels (Bucky Badger). It will look great in your home! 

For more information about how you can buy one of the barrels, please read the Barrels on Parade press release below.

Barrels on Parade

In collaboration with Abby Wilson Painting, Endres Manufacturing, and Springfield Welding and Manufacturing , the 2018 Village of Waunakee’s Public Art Project highlights historic Waunakee, Downtown Madison, and the University of Wisconsin. Local artist, Abby Wilson was commissioned and designed artistic metal renderings that have been affixed to ten wooden barrels. Springfield Welding and Manufacturing, in partnership with Endres Manufacturing, assisted in translating the designs to metal, rolling and rendering the plates, and attaching the plates to the barrels. Each of the three designs will be featured on three of the barrels with one special barrel, stained red, signed with University of Wisconsin Athletic Coaches.

Barrels are on display throughout the community in mostly high traffic locations including the Village Center, the Waunakee Public Library, Rex’s Inkeeper, The Lone Girl, and Village Hall. If you have an interest in purchasing a barrel for your home or business, please contact Adam Bentley, Assistant Village Administrator at abentley@waunakee.com or at 608-850-2182. Proceeds raised by barrel sales will go to the Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation, and to the Village of Waunakee, in its continued support of similar artistic endeavors. The Village sincerely appreciates the work of all our partners on this project, many of which donated their time, talents, and labor in ensuring this project was successful.

Fall Reminders from the Clean Lakes Alliance

As the Village begins leaf pickup, it’s important to note the Village’s continued support of the efforts of the Clean Lakes Alliance, which aims to reduce phosphorus levels in our nearby lakes.

Please take some time to learn more about the health and status of our lakes by watching the 2017 State of the Lakes video found here.

If you want to learn more about how leaves and other yard waste contribute to phosphorus levels in our lakes, and how you can do your part to help in the cause there is a short video that can be accessed here.

These strategies can be found by clicking here.

Finally, if you are interested in getting timely status updates on the condition of our lakes, the Clean Lakes Alliance provides updates on their YouTube channel with the most recent update on August 31, 2018 found here.

Final Results

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Woodland Drive Closures

Woodland Drive near the intersection of Mill Road will be closed to through traffic beginning around 9:00 AM, August 29, 2018 for road repairs. Woodland Drive will be closed from Emerald Grove Lane to Mill Road on August 29, 2018 until dark. If things progress as expected, Woodland Drive will be closed from Mill Road to Tierney Drive starting on August 30, 2018. Limited detour signage will be provided.

Work consists of repairing the humps with an infrared heat method that will heat up the speed humps and level them back. The roadway will be sealed to avoid watering getting into the subbase. Our confidence in this repair method is somewhat suspect, but its clearly the first economical step in trying to solve this problem. Woodland Drive is expected to reopen Thursday night after dark or Friday at the latest.

Volunteers Still Needed for Heritage Fest

Schumacher Farm Park is still looking for a few more volunteers to help with this year's Heritage Fest. Help is mostly needed with set-up, admissions, parking, take down and clean up. They've even added a position for helping the ice cream and butter maker as well! Please take a look at the open positions to see if there is anything you would like to help with!

Late summer is a beautiful time of year to be out in the prairie! The colors are changing and prairie seeds are ripening on the stem. Help with a native plant seed harvest in the Schumacher Farm Prairie. Seeds are collected to plant and enhance lands in other natural areas for pollinators, wildlife, and land restoration. Join us for what will be a unique and rewarding experience. No prior experience is needed. All tools and training will be provided.
