Building Plan Info for Annual Meeting
Posted on May 15, 2020 7:16 pm
At the Special Town Board Meeting held on Tuesday, May 14, the Town Board made a decision on what to present to the electors at the Annual Meeting relating to possible new town buildings. There are three buildings right now that are being considered for replacement and the Board prioritized them in this order: (1) Town Garage, (2) Sand/Salt Shed and (3) Recreation Building/Community Center.
I have attached some information here on the website for you to review before the meeting. (If you click on "Town Business", a link should come up for that information.) Or you can pick up a copy of this information from the town office . We are hoping to have them available at a couple of other places also. Please feel free to contact any of the town board members if you have questions.
The Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 26, at 6 pm and will likely be held at the Community Center instead of the Town Hall so that we can practice social distancing as much as possible. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Town of Plum Lake Referenda Question on Ballot
Posted on Apr 14, 2020 4:49 pm
Shall the Town of Plum Lake adopt the following resolution?
"Resolved, that "We the People" of the Town of Plum Lake, seek to obtain guidance on two issues that affect our elections and
our democratic institutions. The two issues we wish to get public input on are regarding corporate personhood rights and
the influence of unlimited political contributions and spending. We are asking the electors of the Town of Plum Lake if they
support the passage of an amendment to the United States Constitution stating:
1. Only human beings are endowed with constitutional rights - not corporations, unions, non-profits or other artificial
2. Money is not speech, and therefore limiting political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting speech."

April 7 Election

Many of you may have heard that Governor Evers suspended the election until June 9th.
At this time, under direction of the Wisconsin Elections Coomission, we are continuing to plan
for the election to be held tomorrow, April 7th. I am truly sorry for any confusion as I assure you
that I am also confused! I will check one last time before I leave for the day (around 6:30 pm) to see if
there are any updates. Otherwise, I will be here between 6 - 6:30 am and will check again then.
As of right now - plan on the polls being open!

To protect our town employees, until further notice, the recycle station in Star Lake is closed. There is no dumpster there in the winter - - No trash, recyclable or not - - may be dropped off at that site. The Sayner site will be open on Saturdays as usual. There will be no attendant on duty, and there will be no charge. The town board asks that everyone refrain from abusing this change in program during these extraordinary times. Remember also, that the Vilas County landfill is open during its normal hours. They do not change by the bag, but rather a small, set charge for your trash drop-offs.
Thank you for your cooperation.
