Walking and Bike Trail Ribbon Cutting Scheduled

The City of Mosinee will be hosting an official ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the construction of the new segment of the City’s very popular walking & bicycle trail.

The 6:00 PM ceremony will be held at the Edgewood Park west parking lot on Wednesday, May 31st.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, the City will be recognizing the easements for the 2nd segment of the Purple Circle Trail that were graciously donated by Norbert & Joan Dupuis and also by the Consolidated Water Power Company.

The City will also be recognizing the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation for the $255,458 Bicycle Pedestrian Facilities Program grant for the trail project.

The 2nd segment of the 10’-wide asphalt off-road trail extends from Chuck’s Boat Landing southwest approximately 1.1-miles to the west side of Edgewood Park; and then the trail continues on Edgewood Drive to Rangeline Road.

Water Main Flushing Notice

Flushing Map

The Mosinee Water Utility has started again the process of aggressively flushing water mains throughout the City. This aggressive flushing will be done according to our written Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) Program. The UDF program utilizes computer generated models and system mapping to determine a sequence for flushing/cleaning individual sections of water main in a systematic method. Advantages of UDF over normal flushing: it minimizes the water needed to flush the system and removes more sediment and pipe scale buildup.

We are undertaking this aggressive flushing program to improve the quality of the water that is being delivered to our customers. The water treatment plant rehabilitation project has been completed and so the water being pumped into the distribution system is very clean. Now we need to work on getting the water mains cleaned up. Normal flushing procedures remove lighter deposits of iron and manganese from inside the water mains, but not the deposits that have been building up for many years and are attached to the inside of the pipes. UDF will remove more of these deposits and provide better quality water to our customers.

The UDF process requires that we close valves to isolate short sections of pipe. The program is designed to flush dirty pipes with water from pipes that have just been flushed clean. The sections of main being flushed are fairly small and water flow in the pipes is in one direction. When a flushing hydrant is opened, water comes from recently flushed (clean) mains through un-flushed (dirty) mains and out the hydrant. This process decreases the possibility of dirty water complaints, but can affect water pressure while hydrants are flowing. Pressure drops should only last a short time when the hydrant is opened and being flushed.

Customers can expect lower water pressure during flushing periods, but you should not lose all water pressure. If you do, there is a valve closed that we think is open. If you experience a complete loss of water pressure, please contact the DPW at 715-693-2275 immediately so we can correct the situation.

During flushing, there will be increased chances of dirty water entering your home. The water is bacteriologically safe, but can stain laundry or have a brown or yellow color to it. If you notice Utility staff working in your neighborhood, check your water before doing laundry or bathing. If you do get a “slug” of dirty water into your home, flush the cold water lines through a bath tub or laundry sink. If the water does not clear up within a couple of minutes please contact the Utility at the number listed below.

Flushing began the week of April 10th and is expected to continue into June. Each day that flushing is planned a map will be posted on the City’s website identifying the area planned for flushing that day. Flushing will be done during the daytime hours, 7:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday thru Friday, but not on any holiday.

You can also call City Hall for a daily update on what area is planned for flushing.

We realize that the flushing will cause some problems and inconvenience, but our long term goal is to improve the quality of the drinking water delivered to our customers. Thank You, in advance for your patience and understanding.

Downtown Parking Lot Open For Public Use

The City of Mosinee recently completed improvements to the new public parking lot located on the east side of the 400 Block of 4th Street between Square Park and TDS. The parking lot now provides sixteen parking spaces for easy off-street access to our downtown business district. The parking lot can be accessed from the public alley located off of 4th Street (north end) or Pine Street (south end).

Notice to City Residential Refuse Customers

Due to liability concerns, after January 1, 2017, Waste Management will no longer be picking up any residential carts that residents are currently renting from IROW (our former waste and recycling hauler). Residents that own carts will not be affected. You may also lease carts ($4/month) directly from Waste Management (Telephone: 888.960.0008). If you wish to own your cart, Charlie's Hardware does carry a line of carts that comply with the City's garbage container requirements. If you have any questions or need additional information, please stop by or call City Hall at 715-693-2275.

City of Mosinee embracing technology to improve meeting efficiency

The City of Mosinee recently launched IQM2’s Legislative Management platform including Live and On-Demand Video Streaming. IQM2’s software synchronizes online video with Agendas, Meeting Minutes and the City Council meeting information packet. Using this software, the Mayor and City Council are now using Microsoft Surface Pro tablets during meetings to view the meeting packet. Going “paperless” was a big step but it will provide immediate savings in paper costs, copying costs and staff time. The City of Mosinee is committed to using technology to drive citizen engagement and governing efficiency. In addition to the great internal process efficiencies the City obtains using this software, citizens will now be able to watch and search public meeting information from any place in the world via the citizen public meeting portal. We know our residents are busy and it is often difficult for them to attend our public meetings so now they can stay involved at their convenience. Citizens are able to watch the portion of the meeting that they are interested in with a single click while reviewing all the relevant supporting documents. We are delighted at the transparency this is bringing to the City and the community. We urge our residents to take advantage of these wonderful services at
