When it comes to problems with your apartment, it is important to call your landlord in case of an emergency. Emergency issues include:

  • No hot water
  • No heat
  • Broken toilets where there is only one bathroom in a unit
  • Broken door locks/ windows
  • Refrigerator not working
  • Gas leaks, smell of gas (call your gas company immediately)
  • Fire or smoke of any kind (call 911)

If for whatever reason you cannot get ahold of your landlord and are experiencing these kinds of issues, feel free to call me directly: 608-807-7962. 

As emergencies relate to 911, the police department have added chains to all their tires, and responses will be on a priority basis.

Dane County Regional Airport has been canceling flights all morning. If you are trying to rush to the airport this morning to leave for the semester, you might as well take your time - nobody is going anywhere. 

Same goes for motorists. While we have snow plows out on the highway, it is best that no one is traveling until the snowfall concludes.

Snow plow update: "As of 8:00 this morning we had 8" of wet, heavy snow on the ground.  Drivers should use caution on all streets and avoid unnecessary travel.  We also ask residents to remove their vehicles form the street if possible.  We 90 City plows working on our salt routes to keep main streets open. We plan to continue this effort throughout the day.

We have decided to start plowing residential streets right away rather than wait for the snow to stop because of the large amount of snow we are getting and because the snow is so hard to plow. At Ten A.M. we will be bringing in our contractors to begin working on residential streets.  We have asked them to bring in as much additional equipment as they can to assist in the effort.

Since the snow is forecast to continue into the evening hours, we do not expect to complete clearing residential streets until sometime on Friday.  However, by starting work on them now we should make it easier for residents to get to main roads today." - Chris Kelley, Streets Superintendent
