Stevens Point Storm Event Update - June 16

As of 9 AM on Friday, June 16, all health safety issues are being addressed. Crews continue to work on cleanup & will continue to do so for several days. WPS says that as of 4:30 AM, all customers affected in the WPS territory have had power restored.

We remind residents that life safety issues are still our number-one priority and if residents have emergency situations they should call 9-1-1. Any remaining non-emergency issues can still be directed to 715-343-6200.

Please be aware of the following:
  • For those who have been unable to bring their brush to a drop off site, we have organized a curbside brush pickup to begin on Monday, June 19. As crews are freed up from other cleanup duties, they will begin pickup in no particular order. Residents are asked to have their brush in place by 6 AM Monday morning. Anything put out after 6 AM Monday may not be picked up, as we will only go through each area once. Please have it ready.
  • Brush and limbs should be no more than 5 inches in diameter and cut to no more than 8 feet in length. The larger ends or butt ends should all be facing the street to allow for easier pick up.
  • Brush and limb drop-off are still available at the Bukolt Park yard waste drop off site, and near the Stevens Point Dog Park just west of 601 Mason St. These sites are self-serve and are open to all City residents.
  • City busses will remain free of charge through 6:15 pm Friday, June 16, which is the end of their regular daily operations.
  • Water damaged items may be placed in the regular trash bins for pickup, dropped off at the Bukolt Park drop-off site, or taken to the County Transfer Station in Plover. This service is only for water-damaged items and not "extra" garbage.
  • Extended hours for the Bukolt drop-off are available on our website.

Your patience is appreciated. City staff and crews are continuing to work on a wide array of issues in connection with this storm event. If you are aware of people who may need assistance, please check on them.

Mayor Wiza and the City thank everyone for their patience and understanding, and extend a heartfelt appreciation to all City employees and citizen volunteers who assisted in the storm's aftermath.

This will be the last update for this storm event.
