OLD GARBAGE CARTS: The Town was “gifted” the old carts when we canceled service with Waste Management. Residents are welcome to keep their old carts (apparently they have many uses we are finding out), or else we are working on a mass pickup date at our Town shed in Potter for those who do not want to keep theirs. We will send a mailing out soon with the details for that pickup. Please do not use the old carts for roadside service. If you did not receive your new carts yet, or did not receive the correct amount, please email the clerk at email@example.com. It’s difficult to keep up with so many forms of contact and the sheer number of inquiries, so please email if possible, or call 920-588-7013 if unable to email. Thank you!
On Thursday, September 16th, Town of Rantoul Chairman Mertz signed a mutual agreement to terminate garbage and recycling service with Waste Management effective Thursday, September 30th. Last evening, Tuesday, September 22nd, at a special Town Board meeting, the Town of Rantoul Board unanimously agreed to approve a new contract with GFL Environmental for garbage/recycling effective on October 1st. In the transition to GFL, we will be using the same containers that you currently have. They will eventually be replaced with one 90/95 gallon garbage and one 90/95 gallon recycling container. We will no longer have multiple size options. The current pickup schedule will remain the same. If there are any questions during this transition, please contact the clerk’s office at 920-588-7013, and help us spread the word for those who may not have internet access to see updates to our Facebook page or website.

Clerk, Town of Rantoul
Today is the Last day to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you. Go to myvote.wi.gov or email email@example.com to make your request. PLEASE DO SO ASAP. The mail goes out at 4:15. Keep in mind the mail takes at least 2 days to be delivered to anyone with a Chilton mailing address. You will still be able to vote an absentee ballot in-person by appointment only until Saturday, April 4th at 3:00pm. Please call 920-588-7013 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make that request. All in-person voting is done at the Potter Village Hall.
Thank you to all of you who are or have requested absentee ballots. The latest requests will be in the mail tomorrow. When you receive your ballot, please vote and return the ballot in the envelope provided as soon as possible. The post office is being inundated with absentee mail, and I’m not sure how long it will take for your ballots to get back to the Town. Make sure you sign the certification envelope where indicated. Make sure your witness signs where indicated. Thank you.
