Here is a listing of Announcements found on the tab on the home page.

Junk Vehicle Ordinance Enforcement

Over the winter months both Turtle Lake and Almena Villages have seen several vehicles that are in violation of their ordinances. This includes expired or non-registered vehicles, inoperable or junk vehicles. Inoperable means the vehicle has not moved in more than 14 days from one spot. Vehicles that don’t meet the ordinance requirements must be stored inside a building or moved out of the village. As in the past we do allow store bought vehicle covers (no tarps). This is only allowed if there are no complaints from residents in the village of the vehicle being stored outside. This year we will start enforcing the ordinance after May 10th, 2024. So please take care of your vehicles so we don’t have to enforce the ordinance. The fine is $200.00 a day for the violation.

Sign Up for Weather Warnings & Alerts via CodeRED

Barron County has contracted with CodeRED to allow anyone throughout the County the opportunity to receive free emergency alert notifications and weather warnings that require immediate action. These notifications include emergency evacuations, shelter-in-place instructions, missing children alerts, tornado warnings, etc.

Spring Clean Up Vouchers

May 1st -May 31st residents of the Village of Turtle Lake will be issued a FREE voucher for Spring Clean Up.  You may take the voucher valued at $25.00 to the Barron County Waste to Energy Facility located just South of Almena.  You will have the entire month of May to redeem this voucher. 

This is a program that has been very successful in other communities and will allow our residents more flexibility for dates and times to dispose of their unwanted items.

Please stop by the Village office to pick up your voucher.
