The Village of New Bremen Water Treatment Department has completed the monitoring cycle of the New Bremen public water supply for volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) as required by the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) Chapter 3745-81.
Upon completion of each VOC monitoring cycle, state regulations also require the owner or operator of a public water supply to notify its consumers of the availability of the VOC analytical results for the period tested. Persons wanting to review the VOC results should contact the village administrator, Christine Dicke.
Branches and limbs will be collected at the curb on Mondays. No pickup will occur if any type of plastic material is mixed in.
If you have a large amount of material to be picked up, please call 419-629-2802 for assistance and arrangements will be made for a vehicle to be delivered for use. There is no charge for disposal.
Rapid entry boxes are required on properties that have alarms or medic alert alarms. This allows fire, emergency squad or police department personnel to enter the building without breaking a window or door. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the fire chief at 419-629-3101.
If you plan to dig, call 1-800-362-2764 to have your underground utilities located. The Village of New Bremen is a member of the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS), which you can reach by calling the toll free number shown above.
If your digging project includes construction of a structure, a building permit is required.
New Bremen utilizes a siren system to warn residents in the event of a tornado. The sirens will only be activated when a tornado has been sighted near or approaching the Village of New Bremen. The sirens will not be turned on for tornado watches, only for actual sightings of tornadoes or extremely high winds that could cause harm.
Sightings are confirmed by the National Weather Service, any law enforcement or fire department agency in the New Bremen area.
When sirens sound, residents are advised to seek cover immediately. The sirens will be sounded continuously as long as there is danger. When there is no further known danger, the sirens will be turned off. The stopping of the sirens is to be understood as the “All Clear” signal to resume normal activities.
If you live near a siren and notice it is not activating during the weekly test, please report the faulty siren by calling the village office at 419-629-2447 or post a concern via the village website.
NOTE TO NEW RESIDENTS: All New Bremen sirens are tested weekly at noon on Saturdays.
Once a decade, America comes together to count everyone living in the United States, raising national awareness of the decennial census and its invaluable statistics. The decennial census was first conducted in 1790, as mandated by the Constitution.
Data from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to communities across the country to support vital programs—impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy. They also are used to redraw the boundaries of congressional and state legislative districts and accurately determine the number of congressional seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Beginning mid-March, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census. Once you receive it, you can respond online. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.
The Census Bureau will never ask for a Social Security number, bank or credit card account number, money or donations, or anything on behalf of a political party.
