Please recycle – It helps all of us!
For your information, the Town pays for refuse taken to the landfill by the ton, but recycling charges are constant. We encourage you to recycle as much as possible to help defray town costs and help keep your personal garbage fees lower in the long run. Please follow the recycling requirements carefully. If you have a question, visit Waste Management’s website call them at 218-624-7838 or contact the Northwest Regional Planning Recycling Coordinator at 715-635-2197 ext. 244, or see info on their website HERE.
Payments are due to the Town Treasurer anytime between January 1 and June 30 each year. Payments can be submitted by mail, paid in person at the Town Hall, or put into drop box to the right of the Town Hall front door.
If not paid by June 30th late fees of $1 per month will be applied retroactive to the beginning of the year. If garbage and recycle fees are not paid by the end of September, they are considered delinquent and get added to your tax statement. The garbage/recycle fee cannot be included with your property taxes as a deduction on your personal income taxes; nor can it be used to calculate your lottery credit.
Fees are $200 when paid by June 30.

The Town Board receives many complaints regarding dogs running loose. Our Town Constable will be working closely with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department in order to take action when a dog is reported. Charles may be contacted at 218-393-1749 if you wish to make a report.
The Board of the Town of Superior, County of Douglas, Wisconsin does ordain as follows:
Section 1. Running at large and untagged dogs. It shall be unlawful for any person owning, keeping, or harboring any dog, to permit such dog to run at large within the limits of the Town of Superior, Douglas County, Wisconsin, at any time. A dog is considered to be untagged if a valid license tag is not attached to a collar which is kept on the dog whenever the dog is outdoors unless the dog is securely confined in a fenced area.
Section 2. The enforcement of this ordinance shall be carried out by any Town of Superior Constable. If the identity and ownership of the dog offending private property can be readily ascertained, the Constable may forthwith advise such owner of the dog s transgressions. This shall not limit the authority of the Constable to impound said dog forthwith, or to prosecute such owner as herein provided.
Section 3. If the persons who own or harbor the said offending dog, contrary to the provisions of this ordinance, can be reasonably ascertained said individual shall be notified in person or by United States mail, that said dog is impounded.
Section 4. The Town of Superior shall utilize the Humane Society of Douglas County, Inc., located at 138 Moccasin Mike Road, Superior, WI 54880.

Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on Election Day may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on Election Day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 10 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot. Proof of identification must be provided before an absentee ballot may be issued.
This is a trick question. In Wisconsin, it doesn’t matter if you will be “absent” or not; you don’t need a reason to vote absentee. You simply fill out the application.
- Once you’re registered, fill out the EL-121 APPLICATION FOR ABSENTEE BALLOT form and send it to the Town Clerk with a copy of proof of identification. Again, you can mail it, email it, drop it in the mail slot, or bring it in person. You’ll indicate on the form, how you would like to receive your ballot (mail, fax, email, or vote in clerk’s office).
- If you think you’ll have questions, it may be best to stop by during office hours (Wednesdays 3-8 pm, or Thursdays from 7 am-Noon) with your proof of residence and/or proof of identification and complete your ballot here.
They can be. A current and valid driver’s license showing your current name and town address satisfies both requirements. An expired driver’s license would only satisfy the proof of identification requirement. For more information, check out page 2 of the voter registration form for proof of residence, and page 2 of the absentee ballot application for proof of identification.
