TOWN OF BLACK EARTH
December 2011

[View PDF version]

The Town of Black Earth has been dealt a big loss in the last few weeks with the unexpected passing of Danna Dee Turk, who was our town treasurer for 31 years. Again, we’d like to express our sympathy to her family.

We have made some changes for the tax collection for this year. Please review the following information. The checks should be made out to the TOWN OF BLACK EARTH.

The following address will be used for mailing and in person collection. There will be a mailbox provided by my front door if you wish to drop off your tax bills.

Town of Black Earth
Barb Parrell, Clerk
1704 Blue Mound Street
Black Earth, WI 53515

I will be collecting taxes at my home on the following dates, or by appointment:

  • Saturday, December 31, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, January 31, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For residents to have tax bill payments considered timely before the end of the year (2011), please note that those payments must be received (not postmarked) by December 31, 2011.

If you want a receipt, please send the entire tax bill and a returned stamp envelope and I will return the top portion marked paid.

Dog Tag information is enclosed. If you need additional sheets, please feel free to make copies. We do need PROOF OF VACCINATION for rabies before a dog tag can be issued. We ask that you PLEASE write a SEPARATE check for the dog tags. The cost is the same as 2011 and is listed on the enclosed form.

The Town of Black Earth shares a transfer site with 2 other townships. The township residents may take their recyclables and junk to the site. A one year permit runs from January 1–December 31. Those who wish to purchase a permit for the first time should call the Town of Mazomanie at 795-2920.

Important Election News: YOU WILL NEED TO BRING A PHOTO ID BEFORE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE AT ANY OF THE ELECTIONS IN 2012.

We ask for your patience and understanding at this time.
