$50,000 Community Facilities Program grant

“The funding provided to the Village of

manner. The truck will be used for snow

maintaining traffic signs, clearing streets
and properties following weather
emergencies, and day to day operations.
"In these days of restricted revenues and
increasing costs, programs such as USDA
Rural Development's Community Facilities
Program greatly assist the Village of
Crivitz in protecting and serving our
citizens. The grant we received in 2015 for
our Police Department has helped them in
better protecting the community. The new
grant for our Public Works Department will
allow us to continue to better serve the
residents of our Village with safe, clean
and well maintained streets year around.
We thank Rural Development for their support
in this cooperative effort to maintain our
Last year the Village of Crivitz received a
similar grant, for $37,000, which was used
to purchase a new squad car and upgrade
equipment for the Village of Crivitz Police
Department, improving law enforcement
services to the community. The new squad car
replaced one of the department’s two patrol
vehicles that could no longer perform the
functions required of the police
department. Grant funds were also used to
replace outdated equipment including; radar
units, video equipment, portable breath
testers, laptop computers and printers.
The Village of Crivitz first partnered with
USDA Rural Development in 2008, when the
Village received a $ 1.7 million loan and
grant combination that was used to replace
water mains throughout the Village, add a
new well, and to renovate the Village Hall
to create a closed board room, add
accessibility features, and other needed

"The Snowplow Blocked My
When we receive snow the Public
Works Crew's goal is to open up the Village streets and make them
passable as soon as possible.
While they are plowing, snow is being dragged across the driveways
of Village resident. This can not be helped.
The plow basically 'pushes' the snow. It has to go somewhere!
Here are a couple of tips to ease the clean-up of this snow from the
end of your driveway:
Wait until the Village does their plowing on your street to do your
'finishing' work at the end of your driveway
Shovel as much of the snow to the right side of your driveway
(looking toward the street) as you can. This will keep the snow from
being dragged back into your driveway
Please be aware that local ordinance prohibits any person from
pushing, shoving or in any way depositing snow onto public streets,
sidewalks or public property.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
