The Town of Belgium will contact the homeowners at 271 Hidden Bluff Road after it received a complaint about the property.

The complaint cited a list of items such as litter strewn across the property and long grass that needs to be mowed.

“When we did our road inspection this spring, we noticed it. That’s how bad it was,” Town Chairman Tom Winker said.

In the short term, Winker said, he will contact the Washington Ozaukee Health Department and request a wellness check, and the town will send a letter to the homeowners asking them to clean up their property.

“Be assured, the town will follow up,” he said.

In the long term, “it would be in your best interest to form a homeowners group,” he told the couple who complained about the property.

Zoning Administrator Charlie Parks offered another suggestion.

“One thought you could think about is if they don’t have the money … reaching out to local organizations like a Boy Scout troop that’s looking for a service project,” he said.
