  4. You WILL be able to park in front of your homes, on the gravel,  just do NOT drive on the curb and gutter or your driveways.

09-04-19 2nd Water Main Break

Another break has been found at the intersection of Cty HHH (Main St.) and Cty H South (Grove St.).  Residents in these area will have their water off during the repair.

I will continue to post updates as I get them so please watch the website and Facebook page for these updates.

We apologize for any inconvenience.


09-04-19 UPDATE Water Outage

This notice is an update to inform the residents of the Village of Ridgeway that, for the most part, our water has been restored and communication error between the tower and well has been fixed.

However, in the process of fixing this, a water main has broken near Badger Mart. While this is being fixed, residents in that area will have their water off. At this time, I do not have a time that this will occur.

I will continue to post updates as I get them so please watch the website and Facebook page for these updates.

We apologize for any inconvenience.


09-04-19 Water Outage – NOT DUE TO CONSTRUCTION

Image result for intermittent water outage

This notice is to inform the residents of the Village of Ridgeway that we are currently experiencing low to no water pressure due to a communication error between the tower and well. The well has been manually restarted but you may experience intermittent reductions in your water pressure as we work to resolve the communication error. You may experience air in your water lines and this is normal, just run the water briefly to get the air out.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have this fixed soon.

08-19-19 Cardinal Way Subdivision Project Update

The village closed and the builder started construction at Lots 3 and 5 with pouring of the foundations! To view the most recent video click here.

Completed the week of August 12, 2019

  1. Contractor working on final street preparation.
  2. Contractor working on deceleration/acceleration lanes.
  3. Alliant Energy installed 3 phase main line near the Cardinal Way entrance.
  4. Charter Communications on site installing utility near Cardinal Way entrance.  Charter is essentially working with Alliant for sharing the installation of their utility.

Anticipated schedule for the week of August 19, 2019

  1. Alliant Energy installing utility in the subdivision early next week.  Alliant Energy did not get as far as they projected this week due to wet conditions.
  2. Charter Communications on site installing utility in the subdivision.  Again, Charter is working with Alliant.
  3. Charter Communications – regarding the existing poles and the service along C.T.H. ‘HHH’, Charter will have an outage in the transfer of the utility.  Charter has to provide a 30 day notice because of all the municipalities affected (Area from Ridgeway to Cassville).  The existing Charter wire on the poles and the Charter service on the ‘mound’ at the intersection cannot be disturbed until after the 30 day notice.  Ultimately, this means the final landscaping and grading along ‘HHH’ will not be completed until after Charter is through.
  4. Final street preparation by Iverson Construction.
  5. Iverson Construction on site mid-to-late in the week to install hot mix asphalt.
  6. Contractor will be completing deceleration/acceleration lanes.
  7. Contractor will be working on final grading and landscaping following utility companies completing their installations.
