For the week of April 6th Hello All, The City of Willow River would like to remind everyone that there is no trespassing on the property down by Big Bend. This property has been posted for no trespassing. The Sheriff’s Office will be called if there are any trespassers. There has been a few bonfires that have gotten away from people this week. Which is slightly surprising since the DNR has been recommending that people do not burn right now because it has not greened up yet. Hopefully the rain that is forecasted will come and green up the grass. Please remember if a fire gets away from you…you are responsible for the cost of fighting that fire. Please, if it’s dry don’t burn anything. Beckie M. wanted everyone to know that she will be having free car washes again…No, that is an old joke…she will be flushing hydrants in the city of Willow River April 10th through the 25th. If you see her out there give a honk.
