Because of the Covid-19 Virus:
Your Presque Isle Town Board has taken the position that all government meetings, including town committees, are to use the town facilities only for critical issues. For non-government groups, to include exercise groups, the use of the town facilities are suspended until further notice.
The town office is open. Disinfecting and social distancing procedures are in place. In order to maintain proper distances from others, please wait to enter the office if someone else is at the counter. If you are at all concerned about voting in person, consider voting absentee.
Would you like to help with election day processes? Workers are needed, not only to administer the election, but to help with social distancing at the polls. Contact the clerk at home, 715-686-2725 if you are willing. High school students are eligible and encouraged to help out.

Single Stream Recycling Is Here!
You'll notice a different setup at the Transfer Station. There are only two places to put your waste. To the left of the building you'll see two giant blue boxes. The one on the left is for your trash. Put your recyclables into the one on the right, all mixed together. You no longer need to sort! The documents below will tell you what you need to know. Read each document carefully. If you have additional questions, Mike is there to answer them.

Are you interested in the history of Presque Isle? Would you like to learn more?
Thank you to the Presque Isle Heritage Society for the following bit of history. If this piques your interest, consider joining the Presque Isle Heritage Society.
The river running through and alongside the town received the name "Presque Isle" when two French Priests were shipwrecked trying to cross Lake Superior. They survived the winter along the river banks. When spring’s high water levels arrived, they found themselves on "almost an island", or in French, "Presque Isle", earning the river and the town’s largest lake, their rightful name.
Presque Isle is a Bird City! Learn more here.
Do you own 10 or more acres? The Wisconsin DNR has a new program for monitoring wildlife with trail cameras! Find more information here.
