Oconto Falls residents:

Dear Parents/Guardians:
Due to the uncertainty and ever-changing circumstances related to COVID 19, we are sad to announce that we will be canceling all summer park and rec activities which includes baseball, softball, tennis, volleyball and swimming lessons at the beach. This decision was not made lightly. We have talked with many people in and out of our community before this difficult decision was made. We hope that everyone will understand. Please explain to your child that their safety is very important to us and that is why we have canceled our summer programs.

I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable summer.

If you had already registered and paid your fees.

If you paid by check, your check will be returned to you by mail.

If you paid by cash, the City of Oconto Falls will issue you a reimbursement check.

If you have any concerns please contact Sheila Manns [email protected]

Current road closures due to water over the roadway.

Update as of 12:20 pm on May 18th:

- Geano Beach Rd at County S

Flood Safety:

The following common sense guidelines can help you from the dangers of flooding:

Do not drive through a flooded area. More people drown in cars than anywhere else. Do not drive around barriers.

Do not walk through flowing water. Currents can be deceptive. Six (6) inches of water can knock you off your feet.

Stay away from power lines and electrical wires. If your house is about to be flooded, turn off the power at the service box. Electrical current can travel through the water. Electrocution is the second (2nd) leading cause of death during floods.

Be alert to gas leaks. Turn off the gas to your house before it floods. If you smell gas, report it to a Village official or your gas company. Do not use candles, lanterns, or open flames if you smell gas or are unsure if your gas has been shut off.

Keep children away from the flood waters, ditches, culverts, and storm drains. Flood waters can carry unimaginable items that have dislodged themselves. Culverts may suck smaller people into them, rendering them helpless.

Clean everything that has been wet. Flood water will be contaminated with sewage and other chemicals which pose severe health threats.

Do not use gas engines, such as generators, or charcoal fires indoors during power outages. Carbon monoxide exhaust can pose serious health hazards.

OCONTO COUNTY OWNED BOAT LANDINGS TO OPEN
OCONTO, WI (April 22, 2020)—Oconto County Health Officer Debra Konitzer issued Health Officer Order #3 today, April 22, 2020. This is a revision of the April 8, 2020 Health Officer Order. Order #3 opens Oconto County owned boat landings with restrictions and takes effect on Friday, April 24, 2020 at 5:00 a.m.

“The COVID-19 public health emergency has required sacrifices from all of us and continues to be a challenging situation to adjust to,” stated Debra Konitzer, Oconto County Health Officer. “We share people’s concerns about COVID-19, and we also understand that outdoor activities like fishing are encouraged. It is important to enjoy fishing opportunities in waters close to home and to limit travel.”

The boat landings will open, however all public facilities that encourage social gathering of any number of people will be closed. The order states that boat landing users are expected to maintain social distancing guidelines of keeping six feet between themselves and others. Users are also expected to not gather with people who live outside of their household.

“Those using the boat landings are expected to take all precautions to avoid spreading COVID-19 and other diseases,” stated Konitzer. “We need people to follow the social distancing guidelines listed in the order. Frequent hand washing, or use of hand sanitizer, and wearing a cloth face mask are also important steps in stopping the spread.”

If these requirements are not met, the launches may be closed again. Failure to comply could result in a fine or criminal prosecution.
