PLEASE - Do not place stakes or flags along the road edge!  While we realize your lawn is important to you, know that we cannot successfully plow snow if we are not allowed to use our blade along the road edge.  The Town right-of-way is 33 feet (generally, some places more, some less) from the center-line.  That area is set aside for road maintenance and utility upgrades.  It is also used by the Town crew in the winter to push snow into a safe area for snow storage.  At times, the snow will be pushed 4-6 feet off the road in anticipation of future snow events.  Therefore, if the flags are not removed, they will be pushed out of the way with the snow.  Thank you for your understanding!  As always, please call the Town Hall if you have any questions or concerns.  608-526-3354.

If you have a dead ash tree, please contact a tree service for disposal.

Shouldering work:  Our Town Crew may be in your neighborhood this summer working to maintain the shoulders along the Town roads.  This work involves either cutting away soil/grass that is preventing water from draining from the roads or it may involve adding gravel to shoulders that are lower than the pavement edge to prevent the road from cracking off.  This work is important for the longevity of the roads. Regular maintenance of the shoulders maximizes good pavement and allows run-off from rain and spring thawing.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the Town Hall at 526-3354.  
_______________________________________________

History:  A book about immigrants to the Town of Holland is now available:

Hi from England!   I'm emailing about my new book, "The Lost Story of the William & Mary: The Cowardice of Captain Stinson" which is available via Pen & Sword at the end of this year: http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/The-Lost-Story-of-the-William-and-Mary-Hardback/p/12290 .  I wanted to let you know about this true story of a shipwreck in the Bahamas as one of the groups of immigrants on board went on to found the town of Holland, La Crosse, in Wisconsin, and there will be many of their descendants still in the area. 

I am based in England but very keen to raise the profile of the people involved with this shipwreck (many were heroes in this tragedy and several went on to fight in the Civil War) and also my book.  If there is anything you would recommend to this end, or anything you would like to know about this, then I would love to hear more.
Best wishes,
Gill Hoffs
author of "The Sinking of RMS Tayleur: The Lost Story of the 'Victorian Titanic'" (Pen & Sword, 2014, 2015)
