MAYVILLE — The City of Mayville is informing people who live there of possible assistance after hearing their complaints about sewage water flooding their homes.

Residents voiced their concerns during a Wastewater Utilities Commission meeting after heavy rains forced employees at the Wastewater Utilities facility to dump sewage water into the the Rock River. Several homeowners were worried about how they would pay for the damages caused by the flooding.

On Tuesday, Mayville city officials released a statement saying homeowners who are experiencing a hardship due to the recent flooding can contact the City Treasurer for possible assistance. The city is currently exploring low interest loan options.

The city is also offering to collect bulk flood damage items placed on the curb outside Mayville homes. The final collect date for these items is Wednesday, Oct. 9. Any bulk items that need to be disposed of after this date are the responsibility of the homeowner.

There are also bulk drop-off events held the last Saturday of each month, May-Sept. City officials are advising drivers to use caution around the Rock River to the west of the intersection of Kekoskee St. and Walnut St. where they dumped the waste water.
