 You are now advised it is safe to stop trickling your water!

For those of you that are currently running (trickling) your water to avoid a frozen lateral we now feel it is safe to stop April 9, 2014 


The "Poynette...Naturally" motto describes the recreational and lifestyle options available in Poynette. Located in the rolling glacial hills just south of the Baraboo range and the Old Military Highway connecting forts at Green Bay and Prairie du Chein, Poynette residents enjoy a picturesque setting. Lake Wisconsin (3 miles away), Devil's Lake, and numerous small lakes enhance year-round recreational activity. Wisconsin's #2 trout stream, Rowan Creek, bisects two parks in downtown Poynette.

Less than 2 miles away is the MacKenzie Environmental Center with a natural prairie, hiking trails, an animal park and a facility for environmental education. With the recent addition of a Golf Course and Club House, Poynette is a four season recreation area with all seasons providing a wealth of activities.

Brush and Leaf Pick Up




The Village Public Works Crew will begin regular curbside pick-up of brush and tree limbs and bagged leaves.  Large branches (1” to 8” in diameter) will be chipped at curbside only on the first full week of each month.   Place all branches in the same direction, with cut ends towards the curb. 

Note that the ‘first full week’ as used here is the first week of each month where Monday of the week falls in the new month, even if that week has a holiday in it.   

Please place yard waste at curbside by early Monday of the pickup week.  Workers may pick up on any day of the listed week, depending upon weather and other emergencies, so have your materials at the curb on the first morning of the scheduled pickup period. 

Village employees will not pick up bagged material over 30 pounds per bag.

If you have an excessive amount of brush there may be a charge.  If you have a large amount of brush please call 635-2122, leave your phone number, address and name so the Public Works Crew can make arrangements.

Please save this notice for future reference:
