2014 BUDGET

Planning is underway for the City’s

2014 Budget and we will begin actual

development of it in early summer. The proposed

budget will be distributed to Council on October 2,

at which time copies will be available in the Finance

Department and at the Public Library for review by the public.

It will also be available electronically on the Finance page of

the City of Appleton website. There will be a public hearing

on November 6, prior to budget adoption on November 13,

where the public is invited to offer comments.

Please take the opportunity to review the proposed budget

when it becomes available and to contact your alderperson,

City staff, or the Mayor with any questions or comments.

PROPERTY TAX PAYMENTS

Installment due dates for 2nd , 3rd and 4th payments are

April 1, May 31 and July 31. Please visit the City’s website at

www.appleton.org/departments/finance for ways to make

your payments. For tax payment questions, please call the

Finance Department at 920-832-6442.

ASSESSED VALUES

The City Assessor reviews all assessed values at least once

every four years to keep them at 100% of market value. Our

goal is to provide for a fair and equitable distribution of the

property tax levy. For 2013, commercial property is being

reviewed. If your assessment is changed, a notice will be sent

to you on or about May 10. The 2013 assessments will be

available after that date on my.appleton.org. The Assessor’s

Open Book period is tentatively scheduled for the week of May

13-17 and May 20-21 and the Board of Review is tentatively

scheduled for June 4.

For more information on the assessment process, please go

to www.appleton.org/departments/assessor or call the

Assessor’s Office at 920-832-5850.

HOMEOWNER REHABILITATION

LOAN PROGRAM

The City of Appleton Community and Economic Development

Department operates a deferred repayment loan program for low- to

moderate-income homeowners (e.g., family of four with income less

than $57,750/year) that need improvements done to their homes.

Applications from eligible households will be accepted February

18, 2013 through April 26, 2013 for work to be done in 2013.

Applications will be available during this application period only.

OUTDOOR FIREPLACE

PERMITS

The Appleton Fire Department requires

daily or seasonal outdoor fireplace permits

prior to having any outdoor fire. (This

excludes fires fueled by natural gas,

propane and charcoal.) A daily, single-use permit is $15 and

the seasonal permit (new or renewal), valid for the calendar

year from January 1 through December 31, is $30.

Residents are encouraged to obtain their permits online at

www.appleton.org/fire or at any of the six Appleton Fire

stations. Specific burning times and requirements can also

be found on our website.

POLICE DEPARTMENT

HAPPENINGS

The Appleton Police Department is

constantly looking for ways to let the

citizens of Appleton know what is

going on in their community. We

recognize that our citizens are the

Police Department’s best resource

when it comes to obtaining

knowledge about criminal or

suspicious activity occurring in their community.

To assist citizens and officers alike, the Appleton Police

Department has created a Facebook page (www.facebook.

com/appleton.policedepartment) along with a Twitter

account (@AppletonPD_WI). In addition to putting out

information regarding ordinance and statute changes,

community events, traffic issues and safety tips, we also

hope to give citizens a view of the day-to-day happenings of

the Appleton Police Department. On occasion, we will also

post videos or photographs of individuals we need

assistance in identifying.

Recently, we also started using the crime tip software

program, Tipsoft. This site allows citizens to view interactive

crime maps of the city, text information to the site

regarding crime or suspicious activity, and also receive alerts

on electronic devices from the Appleton Police Department.

If you have questions regarding the Appleton Police

Department’s use of social media, please contact Sgt. Dave

Lund at 920-832-5500.

WHERE’S MY BUS?

Riding Valley Transit is

even easier. Real-time bus

arrival information is as easy

as sending a text. Visit

www.myvalleytransit.com for more information and to sign

up for email alerts. Standard messaging rates apply.

SOLID WASTE DISPOSAL/COLLECTIONS

• GARBAGE COLLECTION is done

weekly from City-supplied garbage

containers.

• SPECIAL GARBAGE COLLECTION – If you are moving or just

cleaning out, you may request a special collection for $75. This

collection fee must be paid prior to scheduling a collection

date. Call 920-832-5580 for details.

f Place your City garbage container

out for collection the night

before your scheduled collection

day (between 5 P.M. and 3 A.M.).

f Place your container at least 4-5

(This does not include extra bags of garbage.)

feet from other objects on the terrace such as other

garbage or recycling cans, mailboxes, trees, etc. Garbage

trucks need this space for the truck arms to grab the

container.

f Do not park vehicles in front of or near containers.

f Never place a container in the road. This is always a safety

concern and in winter does not allow plows to clear snow

close to the curb. When there are snow banks, place the

container in your driveway apron opening or clear an

area on your terrace to allow collection crews access to your

container. Do not place containers on snow banks.

f Any bags that cause the lid not to close on City garbage

containers are considered to be overflow refuse.

(See the next section for details.)

f Return your container to its storage point by midnight

the day of collection.

f Please use plastic bags for items inside of City garbage

containers.

f Check www.appleton.org “My Neighborhood” (under “City

Highlights”) for garbage, recycling and bulk overflow pickup

days specific to your address.

If your automated container is too small, too large or needs

repair, call 920-832-5580.

• EXTRA GARBAGE BAGS – Because garbage container charges

are based on volume, bagged garbage or trash that doesn’t fit

in your container must be marked with a disposal sticker. Bags

should weigh less than 45 pounds and must be no larger than

your container opening.

f An unlimited number of garbage bags are collected each

week with a $4 disposal permit sticker on each bag.

f Put extra garbage bags approximately 4-5 feet from

garbage containers.

f Disposal stickers must be attached to bags and be visible to

drivers.

• APPLIANCE TAGS, PUNCH TICKETS, DISPOSAL STICKERS

and RECYCLING STICKERS are available at the locations listed

below. Recycling stickers will not be available once Citysupplied

recycling carts are distributed to residents in April.

• FREE BULKY OVERFLOW is items that are too large to fit into

City-supplied garbage containers.

f Bulky waste items include such things as: chairs, couches,

mattresses, carpet, lumber (pound nails in or remove,

tie and bundle, no longer than 4 feet), bikes, lawnmowers

(gas/oil removed), grills (propane tanks removed), toilets,

etc. Appliances and tires require a prepaid disposal sticker.

f When placing these items out for collection, the items

should be placed approximately 4-5 feet away from the

automated garbage container and not lean against it.

f Items NOT collected: garbage bags (without sticker),

hazardous waste, yard waste, concrete, shingles and

electronics (see Electronics section below).

One truck will come for the City-supplied garbage containers

and another for overflow. Recycling is collected according to

the usual schedule and is not part of this collection. Hazardous

waste materials are not collected curbside (see Outagamie

County “Clean Sweep Program”). Visit www.appleton.org “ My

Neighborhood” (under “City Highlights”) for garbage, recycling

and bulky overflow pickup days specific to your address.

• MAJOR APPLIANCES require a disposal sticker. Collection is

on or after your garbage day.

f Stickers for Freon appliances are $25 and are needed

for: refrigerators and freezers (remove doors), air

conditioners and dehumidifiers.

f Stickers for non-Freon appliances are $20 and are

needed for: stoves, ovens, dishwashers, washing machines,

clothes dryers, furnaces, water heaters, microwave ovens

and other major appliances.

The disposal charge is reduced when appliances are brought to

the Municipal Service Building Customer Service Center located

at the Yard Waste Site. See yard site information on page 10 for

drop-off fee information.

• ELECTRONICS – the following electronics must be recycled

and will not be collected with regular garbage per Wisconsin

state law: computers, monitors, TVs, fax machines, DVD

and VCR players, printers, keyboards and mice, hard drives,

speakers, telephones, cell phones, PDAs, cameras, portable

CITY COMPOST PROJECT

The City of Appleton is producing compost from what were

previously considered to be city waste products. These

ingredients include: leaves, brush and biosolids from the

Appleton Wastewater Treatment Plant (AWWTP). Over time

the composting process converts these ingredients into a

stabilized, nutrient rich material. The compost has been

certified by the United States Composting Council’s (USCC)

Seal of Testing Assurance (STA) program.

For more information regarding the composting operation,

call 920-832-5945 or visit the compost webpage on the

Appleton Wastewater Treatment Plant link at

RECYCLE! IN WISCONSIN IT’S THE LAW

Recycling is picked up every other week on your regular refuse

day. Items should be set out for curbside collection according to the

schedule on page 11.

combine your paper with aluminum, tin, plastic and glass. All

recyclables must be placed into the same recycling cart.

Recyclable items include: aluminum cans,

corrugated cardboard, cereal/cracker boxes,

empty aerosol cans (except those that

contained hazardous materials), glass bottles

and jars all colors, home/office paper, junk

mail, newspaper, magazines, catalogs, paper

egg cartons, paper towel rolls, plastic bottles

and jugs (HDPE #2), plastic bottles and jars

(PET #1) and steel/tin cans. Please remove

Residents in the city of Appleton are offered curbside recycling

collection.

Supply your own reusable bin until May 2013 and please follow

these guidelines:

• Reusable containers should have exterior handles, must not be

over 33 gallons or weigh more than 50 pounds.

• Mark your container with an Outagamie County Recycling decal,

Hall or the Municipal Service Building.

How to place recycling at the curb:

• Place all recyclable materials in your reusable container. There is

no need to separate paper from glass, aluminum, plastic and tin.

• Please do not place recyclables in plastic bags and do not place

trash in your recycling bin.

• All cardboard should be cut to no larger than 3’ x 3’ in size and

secured on windy days.

• Because refuse and recycling are picked up by separate trucks,

please keep your recycling container 4-5 feet away from

obstructions such as your garbage container, mailbox, utility

OVERNIGHT PARKING

Why does the City of Appleton not allow overnight parking on city streets? The reasons range from operational benefits for the

Department of Public Works, Police operations, to aesthetic reasons. There are various operations that the City performs that occur

at night, such as garbage pickup starting at 4:30 a.m., street sweeping which operates all night and snow plowing, all of which are

accomplished better and more efficiently without vehicles parked on the street. The police may note a vehicle parked on a street

when responding to a call and use that information when investigating a crime. The restriction also keeps neighborhoods looking

cleaner by preventing vehicles from parking on the street for extended periods of time.

If an emergency arises, such as a mechanical breakdown, home or street construction or overnight guest vehicles, the police can

give short-term permission to park overnight on a street. To avoid a citation for overnight parking the Police Department must be

notified the day or evening needed. Even with permission from the Police Department there are some restrictions and guidelines:

f The vehicle must be parked in a legal parking spot. Permission will not be granted to park in a restricted area.

f If the vehicle is going to be parked on the street on the day of garbage pick-up, make sure there is adequate

room in the area around the garbage container for our trucks to reach the can.

f If the vehicle will also be parked during the daytime, be considerate of the postal workers and do not park near

a mail box if they are on the curb in your neighborhood.

We are very proud of the way Appleton is a clean and safe place to live. Please help us to maintain these standards.

CLEANING OUR STREETS

Many of our storm sewers lead directly to the Fox River while some lead to retention ponds, which then lead to the river. It is

important to remember that anything placed in the street is in reality being put into the river as well. A cleaner street means a

cleaner river, a cleaner lake and a cleaner drinking water source.

Washing a car or rinsing the deck of your lawn mower in your driveway puts unwanted material in our streets. Blown grass

clippings, paper, trash, dog droppings, antifreeze, gas and motor oil are all unwanted materials flushed into the street and down

the storm sewer when it rains. Blowing snow into the street also adds to the problem because it causes our street crews to use

more anti-icing agents to keep the roads safe for travel.

The City’s Department of Public Works removes over 3,059 tons of street sweepings from our streets each year. Help us reduce

this amount and help keep our waterways clean. Remember that in spring, no yard waste should be raked into the street. See

collection information on page 9.

WATER HYDRANT FLUSHING

The Public Works Department will be flushing hydrants in the spring and fall. Water mains are the underground

pipes which bring fresh water to your home. Flushing removes natural minerals, like iron, which are harmless but

which can discolor your water. If you see our crews working in your area, please try to use as little, or if possible,

no water for an hour. Allowing the water to settle ensures that you won’t draw discoloration into your water system.

Should you find discoloration in your system, stop using the water, wait about an hour, and then draw off

the discolored water through a cold water tap only.

We know it’s tough to go without water, but an hour of inconvenience while we flush,

can help us avoid problems in the future.

ANIMAL LICENSES ARE REQUIRED FOR CATS AND DOGS

All cats and dogs must be licensed and rabies vaccinated by age 5 months. Animals 5 months

and older that are new to the city must be licensed within 30 days of residing in the city. No

person or household shall keep more than 6 animals, the maximum number of dogs being 3,

the maximum number of rabbits being 2. Licenses must be renewed each year. Please visit

our website at www.appleton.org for more information. The current license fees are as follows:

Regular license fees Jan. 1 through Mar. 31 Spayed/Neutered - $6 Unaltered - $11

*With additional late fee on or after Apr. 1 (see note below) Spayed/Neutered - $11 Unaltered - $16

*Please note: a late fee of $5 per animal (see above amounts) will be added to regular fee amounts if owners have not

licensed their animal/s (age 5 months that have resided in the city for more than 30 days) by the March 31 deadline.

Is your kitten/puppy eligible for the prorated license fee? If your pet is 5 months of age or younger and the date you

complete your application is on or after July 1, your prorated amount is as follows:

Prorated fees for kittens/puppies July 1 through Nov. 15 Spayed/Neutered - $3 Unaltered - $5.50

Legion for proper disposal. Visit www.appleton.org

DISPOSING OF MERCURY

Exposure to releases of mercury into the environment has

been negatively linked to human and wildlife health. Mercury

should never be poured down a drain or sewer, flushed down

a toilet or thrown in the trash. Items containing mercury (e.g.,

thermometers and thermostats) should be taken to Hazardous

Waste Clean Sweep facilities for recycling.

www.appleton.org

For more information on recycling mercury products visit the

Outagamie County Solid Waste and Recycling website at

mercury and ways the City of Appleton is working to reduce

BIKE SAFETY PROGRAM

LEARN TO DRIVE YOUR BIKE

Kids love to ride bicycles to get to places like school, parks and stores or simply to have fun with

their friends. Bikes are healthy because they encourage children to exercise and provide a

greener mode of transportation. However, if not handled properly they can be dangerous. In

“Learn to Drive Your Bike”, children will work through stations learning everything from bike

inspection (ABC check), how to avoid hazard, balance, scanning and signaling to entering the

road safely and practicing in traffic. This is a collaborative program as instructors will be furnished by Fox Cities Greenways and the Regional

Safe Routes to School Program. Instructors are trained by the League of American Bicyclists and will follow the Smart Cycling curriculum.

LOCATION: Fox River Academy, 1205 W. Prospect Avenue (near Jefferson School and Pierce Park) FEE: $36.00

sessions. Information on the winter and spring semesters will be available in our September – March activity guide.
