Raise Hope and Foster Dreams

Columbia County Health and Human Services is currently seeking foster parents interested in providing a structured, stable, and loving home for children of all ages (0-18) both long and short-term.

Recycling Center

The Village Board is interested in opening a new recycling center at the old lagoon site off Gruhn Rd. The site also includes the brush and compost drop-off area. The proposal is to be open during specified hours (to be determined) for Fall River residents to drop off recycling, brush, and compost. Supervision would be necessary to assist with proper use of the site. Please contact the Village Hall at 484-3525 if you are interested in helping out.

Sewer Utility Needs Your Help!

Recently, the Fall River Sewer Utility has experienced an increase in wastewater pumping station malfunctions due to “disposable” cleaning items and wipes entering the wastewater stream. Many cleaning products labeled “disposable” or even “flushable” can cause problems for homeowners and the Village. Disinfecting wipes, Swiffer mop refills, baby wipes, and other products made from similar materials should be disposed of in the trash- never flushed down a toilet. These items do not dissolve or break down after being flushed and can clog household sewer pipes, resulting in an expensive and messy repair and clean-up for a property owner. If these items find their way into the Village’s sewer system, they can clog pipes and pumps in the Village’s sewer pumping stations. This leads to expensive repairs and potential interruptions in sewer service.

Please help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the Village’s wastewater system by disposing of these products properly, in the trash!
