News & Announcements
Paul Schroeder has assumed the duties of Public Works Trustee effective January 9, 2017 following the unexpected resignation of Bill Cosban in December 2016.
Bill, in his short tenure of eight months, was instrumental with the replacement of the Village street signage, resurfacing of Nicolet Place. LED lighting upgrade in the Village Hall and researching masons for the 2017 brickwork restoration project of the Village Hall wall.
The Village is fortunate that Paul has agreed to return to the position he once retained and complete the Public Works Trustee term.
Numerous sightings of coyotes within the Village of North Bay have been seen by and reported to Village officials in recent days. Although coyotes are naturally fearful of humans, it is important to be familiar with precautions for keeping your pets and property safe.
Coyotes do not require open space to survive, and have successfully adapted to living in close proximity to humans. Coyotes are most active at dusk and dawn, and in urban environments they are more active at night. However, they can be seen at any time of day.
The following techniques are recommended with interaction of coyotes, and to protect yourself and your pets:
Never feed coyotes or any other wildlife.
Keep pets, especially cats and small dogs, and pet food inside.
Stay close to pets when taking them outdoors, and always keep them on a leash, especially from dusk through early morning hours.
Remember, coyotes are wild animals and should be treated with respect. If you see one, keep your distance and do not leave small children unattended outside.
Food waste, such as meat scraps or leftover pet food, should be bagged.
Keep trash in containers with tight-fitting lids.
Use “hazing” techniques to shoo away coyotes, such as standing tall, yelling and waving arms while approaching the coyote; using a whistle, air horn, bell or other device; banging pots or pans together; stomping your feet; using a water hose or pepper spray; or throwing tennis balls or rocks toward the coyote.
Never run from a coyote.
Please note that the discharge of firearms or bow and arrows within the Village limits is prohibited.
Monday Collections – December 26 and January 2 – are unchanged during the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays.
Nicolet Place paving will begin on Thursday Oct 20th starting with a street cleaning in the morning followed by the actual paving. The paving should be completed by 4 pm on Wednesday.
Homeowners should park their cars on the adjacent streets Wednesday evening.
The asphalt paving is weather dependent; rain will delay the project. We will keep you up-to-date once we receive notice.
