SUPERIOR — Wisconsin Help for Homeowners is a program that helps homeowners with costs such as overdue bills, mortgage payments, property taxes and utilities. Visit or call 1-855-2HOMEWI to learn more about this program.

The Wisconsin County Highway Association (WCHA) reminds drivers to drive safely in work zones, and urges drivers to be aware of the upcoming winter conditions, noting that drivers should be aware of the use of fluorescent green warning lights on municipal vehicles throughout Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Legislature passed new lighting options for municipal vehicles, allowing for the use of fluorescent green warning lights on municipal vehicles. The public will begin to see these lights on many snowplows this winter season, which will help drivers distinguish between operators attempting to clear lanes of travel, and private plowing operations plowing parking lots and driveways. For added information or questions, citizens are encouraged to contact Daniel Fedderly, WCHA Executive Director, at 715-505-WCHA.

There are a few meetings on the calendar for next week:

  • The Land Conservation meeting takes place on Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon in room 201 of the Government Center.
  • The Douglas County Board meets on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 6–8 p.m. in room 201 of the Government Center.
