Flooding Issues – December 30, 2019

Due to the flooding, we are asking the everyone refrain from driving on Bridge Street, Merrill Lane, Farnsworth Avenue, Water Street and Turner Avenue as well as any other streets that are near the Oconto River and experiencing flooding. We do have high water and road closed signs in many locations so please observe those. Also please stay out of Holtwood Campground! Thank you for your cooperation and stay safe!
