The Economic Flood Recovery Committee completed its work enabled by a planning grant from the EDA.
The 3rd Public Meeting was held on Monday, February 8th. The plan was reviewed, discussed and questions answered by leaders of the project - Vierbichers. A draft copy of the plan is included below. An addition to the draft was information (that will be included in the final plan) regarding a solar field within the village. That work had been done several years ago, but committee members felt it was important to include.
It was emphasized that the entire plan is something that will extend out for years. Completion of the projects will depend on priorities and funding opportunities.
The main points of the document are
1. Floodproofing and redevelopment concepts,
2. Resettlement sites and concept plans,
3. Flood mitigation infrastructure,
4. Other infrastructure projects,
5. An overview of funding strategies and implementation plan.
The PDF file below is the FINAL document. Lots of good information.

To all Vernon County Tax Payers:
If you received a 2021 tax bill, please disregard as a revised copy of your bill will be sent out soon. Due to a calculation error we found, we have to recalculate the taxes and send out new bills. Please make sure you have the bill marked “Revised”. Please hold off making payment until you have your revised tax bill. All correct bills will say “Revised” even if you didn’t get the initial copy.
We do apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work to get corrected bills out to you.
