01-29-19 Prevent water pipes from freezing

Due to the EXTREME cold weather it is HIGHLY recommended that you leave faucets dripping. A small drip will prevent water pipes from freezing. Also, keep cabinet doors open below sinks to allow the heat to help keep those pipes from freezing. If you have any questions contact the Village office, Jeff Brindley (608-669-0977) or Doug Foster (608-712-2817).
