Update on South Wall Street closure for deck pour:

The CTH R over Wall Street deck pour is rescheduled for 9 AM on Friday 4/24. Temps look much better on Friday. We will be pouring from the east side of the bridge on CTH R with a belt placer, so no traffic impacts on Wall Street will be necessary.

A message from Tim Doell, Project Manager for CTH R Bridge Project: South Wall Street closure

Next week Tuesday 4/21 Pheifer Brothers will be pouring the bridge deck on the structure that runs above Wall Street. In order to pour this deck, we will need to close Wall Street temporarily to through traffic. This will take place from 7 AM until 3 PM on Tuesday. Emergency vehicles will be able to get through the work zone, however we will be closing it to regular traffic for safety reasons. Please pass this information on to any other parties that may need this info.


A message from Brown County Emergency Management:

After deliberation with Health and Human Services and the County offices, we have decided to NOT sound the sirens tomorrow. We want to encourage citizens to talk with their families and coworkers about Severe Weather Preparedness and what they would do when sirens sound during a real event, but we have decided to support our partners and encourage social distancing by NOT sounding the sirens tomorrow. We plan to post awareness messages on social media during the drill. We apologize for any inconvenience we've caused you as this of course was not the intent. Thank you for understanding and for your help spreading the original message. Please spread this as well: NO SIRENS TOMORROW.

An open letter to our community from Salm Partners:

An Open Letter to our partners and our community

April 7, 2020

I hope this finds you and your family safe and healthy. These are challenging times for everyone, as no family is immune from the health and financial impact of this crisis. I want to update you on how Salm Partners is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting in March, Salm Partners began to prepare for the challenges COVID-19 was going to bring. We altered our processes, educated our partners on prevention, and developed a response protocol for dealing with a positive case. We made sure our partners knew to stay home when sick, knew when it was safe to return, and increased paid leave. We amended our attendance policy, increased cleaning, and instituted a monthly bonus to recognize the extraordinary efforts being made by our partners. You, our partners, are a great team, and I am very proud of the work you are doing.

Last week was a week of unfortunate milestones. The world crossed 1 million COVID-19 cases. The USA tally reached 300,000. The State of Wisconsin counted its 2,000th case, and Salm Partners had its first partner test positive.

Immediately upon being informed of the positive case, Salm Partners initiated its response protocol. The impacted partner was instructed to quarantine by the Brown County Health Department, partners who were potentially exposed were sent home on paid leave to self-quarantine, and the affected area and shared spaces were thoroughly cleaned.

The steps that we followed are the correct ones for keeping our partners safe, and we will follow them again when we have another positive case. We cannot prevent every partner from getting COVID-19. However, we can do everything in our power to avoid people from getting and spreading COVID-19 in our facility.

The CDC, FDA, and USDA have all said there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food. Therefore, there is no risk to the safety of the products we produce.

If food production were to stop in this country, the empty grocery shelves would cause panic buying and a nationwide crisis. This is why the US Government and the State of Wisconsin have recognized Salm Partners as part of the nation’s “essential, critical infrastructure” and encouraged food companies to continue producing through the pandemic. We have a special obligation to serve our country and our community, and we will not let them down.

We, Salm Partners, our suppliers, our customers, and the Denmark community, can be proud of the service we together provide to the nation. We produce a nutritious, convenient, delicious product, which serves an important need when all of the country is eating at home. We thank our local community for supporting us with many of our necessities, including cheese, lean beef, paper and film packaging, transportation, skilled tradesmen, wood pallets, food service, and world class partners.

This crisis has brought out the best in our partners and our community. I would like to give a special thank you to all our partners, our community, and to everyone doing their part in this crisis. Our sympathies go out to those that have been affected by COVID-19, and we hope and pray for their full recovery. Together, as a community of partners, we will prevail.

Letter from Advance Disposal

March 20th, 2020

Attention: COVID19 Update
To Our Valued Municipal Customers:
Advanced Disposal’s motto is “Service First, Safety Always”. At Advanced Disposal, safety is of utmost importance and should not be ranked as it is our lifeblood: the safety of our employees, our customers and the general public wherever we are operating. As the world is adjusting daily to the challenges that COVID19 is creating for all of us, rest assured we are prepared to continue providing our essential services to you and your residents. As a company, we are implementing policies and procedures to ensure that our employees are as safe as possible while performing our services, and to keep our customers and the public safe as well.
o Memorial Park (Wisconsin Avenue)
The COVID19 pandemic has caused tremendous disruption to our personal and professional lives, and Advanced Disposal is not immune to these events. At this time, we are adjusting our workforce and practicing the protocols and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC): cleaning and disinfecting, social spacing, remote workstations, etc.
In terms of our frontline services and collection services, we are providing a public health service and will continue to deliver our services as efficiently and effectively as possible. We stand ready to adjust as needed as more waste materials move from the commercial/industrial sector to the residential sector due to school closures, reduced hospitality/leisure activities and reduced commercial/industrial activities.
Lastly, communication will be very important over the next few weeks. We know how much your community relies on our services, and we truly view our relationship as a partnership. As of this time, all disposal facilities are operational and we are operating as close to 100% workforce as possible in providing collection services. In the event of any issues that could affect collections in your community, we will be reaching out immediately to advise of the issue, and determine a response that works for both partners. Each day we are receiving more information which causes adjustments, but we want to make sure our partners know as soon as possible to avoid confusion or add stress to an already challenging time. Please continue to visit our website, at to remain informed with Service Alerts.
Thanks for your partnership,

I want to send a huge Thank You to those who worked diligently to get the absentee ballots out timely so that we could stay safe at home and for the hours put into making sure everyone could vote yesterday. .
Good morning. I just took my trash to the temporary trash collection site and the employee you have working there is very polite. Thank you

Please have someone put down some cold patch for the coffee can sized hole in front of 402 Harvest Hill Dr.
Hello Lovely Village of Denmark! When can we expect Hager Rd to be FIXED!?! There are clearly more things wrong with the road than a “Bump” sign can provide. The roundabout is OPEN, which means this road should have been next in the list to repair! Thanks to the lack of repairing, I now need to replace a tire, that was BRAND NEW not even a month ago... and most likely a rim. Because I hit one of your many “Bumps” (as you call them) in the road. It’s completely unacceptable that you think this road is “drivable” and I cannot believe that it’s not closed. Can anyone in that town explain why the road is still open, and not fixed?!
