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 temporarily closed, but will be open soon for in-person voting. Disinfecting and social distancing procedures will be 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.

Presque Isle Park Plan

Presque Isle is blessed with beautiful wilderness. Our parks give visitors a wonderful opportunity to spend time enjoying our natural beauty. 

Transfer Station Activity

Composting

The Town of Presque Isle will be accepting yard waste and certain other materials that can be easily composted.

The Transfer Station has a sand pad that is ready to accept your yard waste and compostable items. Enter through the gate to the right of the building and look for the sand pad on your right. You will see a sign that identifies acceptable and unacceptable compost materials. Please ask the attendant for more information or see the handouts available at the Transfer Station.

Wisconsin law prohibits disposal of yard materials in landfills.  Composting is an easy, inexpensive alternative to landfills that puts these resources to use instead of simply throwing them away. https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Recycling/compost.html
 


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.
