Brush pile costs keep growing for City of Dodgeville

City of Dodgeville public works director Greg Lee stood before the council last Wednesday night and asked for ideas on how to eliminate costs for the brush pile located at the city's compost site at East Side Cemetery.
The cost to remove the brush pile keeps growing each year, Lee said. Over the past few years, it has cost between $8,000 and $10,000 to ground up and remove.
"To me, it's kind of become a problem," he said.
The brush pile is available to residents who live in the City, but it has become evident that more people from outside the city have been using the compost pile, Mayor Todd Novak commented.
"It's becoming more of an Iowa County dump," he added. "And it's not City residents that are abusing it. They are fairly responsible when using it."
Novak suggested the possibility of having posted hours and a person there to man the site, but there would be added cost to pay someone to supervise. Other ideas included installing a camera, putting up larger signage and fencing the area in.
The City could also charge fees for out of towners to use the compost site, as well as tree service companies that also use the site to dump tree debris....
