Dear Town Residents and Property Owners: It has been awhile since our last newsletter and it is time to update you on what has taken place within our Town. You may have noticed that a number of Town roads have been striped. South Shore, River Road, Amacoy Lake Road, and Hutchinson Road will be striped when road work is complete. The Rusk County Highway department will complete work on Amacoy Lake Road and Hutchinson with an overlay sometime this fall. The Town will be constructing a shed to store sand and salt for the upcoming winter season. The Rusk County Highway Department is not always open on Saturday, Sunday, and some holidays. Our shed is being constructed to meet short term needs and this facility will enable us to provide you with the best driving conditions possible throughout the winter. This is the third year the Town of Stubbs has committed resources to Amacoy Lakes Association Grant project to eliminate the infestation of Curly Leaf Pond weed. There is an official grant award letter available for your examination. Just contact the town chair. Lake Amacoy is a valuable asset to the community and we are fully committed to preserving Amacoy Lake for generations. On a different note, Waste Management/Timberline is requesting a $2,000,000 decrease in assessed value. Our assessor, Tom Hanson, is working with the State of Wisconsin to address this issue. Our Board of Review is currently set for September 5. We are not sure at this time how the decreased valuation would impact the property taxes in the Town of Stubbs. You may have noticed numerous trucks hauling material from and to the frac sand site east of Weyerhaeuser. A sand storage facility is being constructed on the site. The frac sand company is going to construct an access road within the Village of Weyerhaeuser for the sand trucks to haul to the facility. The company is currently using Stiles and Norwegian roads for construction. The Town Board will request reimbursement for damage done to the roads. The Canadian National may ask for closure of Norwegian Road. All residents along this road will be contacted and invited to a special meeting on the proposed closure. The board was informed that trains could block Norwegian Road for up to 45 minutes at a time. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any board member or email us at May summer continue for the next 3 months, fall will be fantastic, and winter will be as short as possible.
