Simply stated, our Village government exists to serve our community. As part of our overall municipal service, we frequently review both the quality as well as the appropriateness of our municipal services to ensure that they meet many of the needs of the Village. The governing Board and Village staff strive to provide the services the Village needs and wants at a reasonable price. In addition, we seek to engage citizens in a variety of ways to assist in guiding our actions and to improve the overall quality of life for the residents, businesses and visitors.
The Village of Denmark provides an array of services that include both those well-known, standard services such as police and fire/EMS protection, clean water, garbage and recycling collection, municipal court, snow plowing of streets, both park and recreational opportunities as well as a number of perhaps lesser known services such as advice on tree management, notary public service, voter registration, police school liaison duties, street sweeping, street sign maintenance, curbside brush chipping, loose leaf and garden waste pick-up, crosswalk/curb painting, used oil collection, storm water collection, sewage treatment as well as several others.
While not all such services are utilized equally by the residents and businesses located within the Village, these municipal services are structured to meet the overall needs of the community in accordance with those policy guidelines established by the Village's elected or appointed officials. The Village adjusts the types and levels of such municipal services in order to maintain both their overall efficiency and effectiveness and in order to continue to strive to improve the overall quality of life within the community.
