Trash, recycling and large item collection: If your trash and recycling is collected on Mondays, you should place your scheduled cart(s) to the curb for collection by 6:30am on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. Only residents that have a Monday collection day will experience a delay in refuse and recycling pickup services. If you have a Tuesday collection of trash and recycling by the Streets Division, you should also place your scheduled cart(s) out for emptying by 6:30am on September 6.

Due to the holiday, large item collection will begin on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 for residents who submitted work orders to set out items on Sunday, September 4, 2022. As a reminder, all large item collections must be scheduled in advance by submitted a work order. And you should set the items out on the date you selected in the work order – not earlier. Crews do not provide early pickup. Create your large item work order.

Announcements

  • Stormwater ordinance: Since the 2018 flood, the Engineering Division has done much to improve flooding issues, including updating the Stormwater Ordinance – important for anyone planning to build or redevelop in the Madison community. The latest blog in Engineering's "Since 2018" series focuses on the Stormwater Ordinance.
  • Brush collection: The Streets Division would like to remind residents that the final curbside brush collection opportunity for 2022 is fast approaching. Most residents will receive their fifth and final opportunity for curbside brush collection during the month of September. You can learn the dates when you should set out brush for pickup by going to the Streets Division website, www.cityofmadison.com/BrushCollection. Enter your address into the form, and you will see the dates when you can set out brush for pickup.
  • $9M investment in men's homeless shelter: On August 30, County Executive Joe Parisi and Mayor Rhodes-Conway announced major developments today in the ongoing partnership between the City and the County to support the construction of the state's first shelter for men experiencing homelessness. With construction planned for 2024, this 40,000 square foot facility will have space for 200 people. It will be located on 1902 Bartillon Drive on the City's Eastside. Real the press release.
  • Dane CORE 2.0 portal closing: In September of 2021, Dane County and the City of Madison launched Dane CORE 2.0, a federally funded emergency rental assistance program designed to help renter households struggling to meet their housing costs. The program has distributed nearly $40 million of rent and utility assistance to more than 6,300 households.

During the early days of the pandemic, Dane County and the City of Madison sought these federal funds to assist those in our community struggling to pay rent. While Dane CORE partners have distributed a tremendous amount of federal assistance, many in our community continue to struggle to meet their basic needs.

At this time, the federal funds available to Dane CORE 2.0 are nearly depleted. The County and City have already requested additional funding from the federal government through the U.S. Department of Treasury and are working with our federal Congressional delegation to advocate for additional funds. We are hopeful that more funding will be provided, but we don't yet know when that decision will be made or how much funding might be offered.

Many households already have requests for assistance pending. To better ensure funds are available to pay existing eligible claims, we have decided to close the Dane CORE 2.0 application portal as of 12:00 AM on September 15, 2022. The Dane CORE 2.0 program partners will continue to process applications received prior to the portal closure at 12:00 AM on September 15.

Applications will be processed under existing program criteria, in the order in which they are received, until remaining funds are gone. To learn about program eligibility and apply for Dane CORE 2.0, please visit www.danecore.org.

First, program benefits will be reserved only for those households facing the harshest of economic hardships. This was the approach adopted when the federal emergency rental assistance program was first introduced in 2021.

Additional guidelines after September 15 include:

  • Program benefits would be available to those with household incomes at or below 50% of the County Median Income. (Currently, the income threshold is 80% of County Median Income.)
  • The program will provide assistance only for past-due (unpaid) rents.
  • Only arrears accrued since July 1, 2021, will be eligible.
  • Assistance will not be available for forward/future rent payments unless paired with security deposit assistance.

In addition to providing direct rent support for high needs households, the City and County also funds services through the Eviction Diversion and Defense Partnership. The Program provides legal representation to renters who face eviction actions, mediates disputes between tenants and landlords, and helps address other potential threats to housing stability. Services through the Eviction Diversion and Defense Partnership are currently available at no cost to eligible households, and they will continue after the Dane CORE application portal closes on September 15.
