HILBERT – At an emergency meeting of the Hilbert Village Board on March 17, trustees voted to close the Hilbert Municipal Building for walk-in services, due to the worsening situation with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The building includes the offices of Village Administrator Dennis DuPrey, Deputy Clerk-Treasurer Missy Kieso and Director of Public Works Charlie Fochs.
The restrictions will continue until further notice, but village employee will continue working and may be contacted by phone or email.
To contact DuPrey or Kieso, call 920-853-3241, fax 920-853-3515 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To contact the Department of Public Works offices, phone 920-853-3556 or email email@example.com. To contact the Wastewater Treatment Plant, call 920-853-3256 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The on-call DPW employee may be reached in the field by cell phone at 920-418-3233.
Payments to the village may be made by mail addressed to Village of Hilbert, P.O. Box 266, Hilbert WI 54129-0266. There is also a dropbox on the outside of the village offices at 26 North Sixth Street for payments or communications.
They may also be paid through the village’s website, www.villageofhilbert.com, then clicking on the link for on-line payments and following the instructions. Payments may also be made through the GovPayNet website at www.GovPayNow.com or by calling toll-free 1-888-604-7888.
The village is highly recommending that residents vote in the April 7 spring general election by mail, using absentee ballots. The village will offer very limited in-person absentee ballot voting, by appointment only, by calling 920-853-3241 first to make an appointment.
Requests for voting by absentee voting may be made by written request dropped off in the village hall dropbox; or by mailing it to the village at P.O. Box 266, Hilbert WI 54129; or by an email request to email@example.com; or by using the on-line option at My Vote Wisconsin at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoteAbsentee.
The village government remains fully staffed providing normal services, with just the offices closed to the public. Village employee contacts with the public will follow “social distancing” guidelines that make it difficult for the virus to go from one person to another.
Village board and committee meetings will continue as normal, but citizen participation may be limited.
All rentals of the community center and park facilities between now and April 30 are cancelled.
Updates will be posted on the Village of Hilbert Facebook page.
