According to Section 174.05 of the Wisconsin Statutes, the owner of a dog more than five months of age within the license year, shall annually, on or before the dated the dog becomes five months of age, pay the dog license fee and obtain a license. You can obtain this license with the Village of Poplar Clerk. The cost of the license is $8.00 each Male or Female, $3.00 if animal is spayed or neutered. A rabies vaccination certificate must accompany payment for all dog licenses. Please make payments to: Village of Poplar, PO Box 137, Poplar, WI 54864.
As part of the Village of Poplar’s recent permit renewal for wastewater treatment and the accompanying variance for delayed phosphorus reduction levels for this permit period, we are required to use other methods to reduce phosphorus in the watershed. Things we can do at the personal level for all residents whether municipal sewer customers or not can help reduce phosphorus in the environment and reduce the amount necessary to be removed from the wastewater stream in the future. Things that we can do to reduce phosphorus at home are:
- Use low or no phosphate cleaning products.
- Do not throw yard waste like leaves and grass into the ditch, streams, or rivers. Compost it.
- Clean up after your pets.
- Reduce the use of fertilizer on lawns and gardens to only what is required. More is not better.
- Use landscaping practices that stop or slow the runoff from your property.
