The Village has had a very busy summer! To keep up-to-date, please utilize the Village’s social media outlets (facebook, Twitter, etc) and sign up for electronic notifications (sign up here!) for media releases, weekly reports, etc.

First, congratulations are again in order to the Bay Port Pirate baseball team for winning their 2nd consecutive Division I state championship! As I stated last year after the Pirates won the 2009 State Championship, you cannot overlook the hard work and effort that is required by the coaching staff, parents and players to reach a state finals in any sport. This is a tremendous achievement and worthy of recognition.

Second, the Village for the fourth consecutive year will be releasing an annual report card which benchmarks certain financial metrics with other communities in Brown County and statewide. This gives our residents & businesses an opportunity to see how the Village of Howard compares to similar communities in categories such as “basic spending per capita”, “debt per capita”, etc. This report card will be released in mid-July.

Third, the Village has been working closely with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regarding the US 41 reconstruction project. A primary concern is ensuring the I-43/US 41 interchange is constructed to a standard that will permit Federal Highway to reclassify US 41 to interstate status in the next few years. The Village also is working with several large development companies to ensure that various segments of the new highway are constructed with appropriate access.

Fourth, the Village recently opened our newest addition to our Parks System – the Howard Dog Park. The Howard Dog Park is located at Gordon Nauman Park, on the shores of Duck Creek. It is open sunset to sundown and has several acres of fenced area to allow your dog to run. Please observe the park rules posted at the entrance of the park.
