FAHERTY RECYCLING WILL NOT BE COLLECTING RECYCLING AS SCHEDULED ON FEBRUARY 7, 2019 DUE TO THE
ICEY WEATHER. RECYCLING WILL BE PICKED UP ON SATURDAY,FEBRUARY 9TH AND THEN BACK TO THE SCHEDULE AS POSTED. 






Grant County Town and Municipal Officials:

During the upcoming period of extreme cold, it is likely that some families may need
emergency shelter assistance during the evening/overnight hours due to the cold
weather (furnace failures, etc).  Each community has a different plan and a
different level of preparedness for sheltering residents in the evening.  The Health
Department, Social Services, ADRC and our office had discussed options and have
determined that at the county level we are going to handle requests for assistance
on a case-by-case basis.

If families or individuals urgently need a warm place to go, our messaging will
instruct them to contact the Grant County Sheriff's Office communications center at
608-723-2157.  The Communications Center can refer those families to the local
police officer on duty, or if the city doesn't have an officer on/for rural township
residents the callers will be referred directly to me.  I will be available 24 hours
a day through Friday to handle these calls as needed.

Most communities have plans to make Village Halls or other municipal buildings
available 24 hours if a need arises.  Some police departments also can write a
limited number of Salvation Army vouchers for hotel rooms which in many cases is a
better option than opening a shelter.  If a local police department is unavailable
or doesn't have other options, dispatch will refer those callers to me.

Municipalities, please pass this on to your police officers.  If necessary they can
contact me on my cell at 608-778-1155.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks,
Steve
