Arbor Vitae does have a brush site. It is located where the old dump was on Schuman Road off of North Farming Rd and Hwy 51. The site is open every weekend in the Spring and Fall and every other weekend during the Summer;
The town has adopted the State Uniform Dwelling Code and we have our own building inspector. If you have plans for construction, you will need a building permit first from the town and second from Vilas County Zoning.
Arbor Vitae is divided into seven wards and four supervisory districts for County elections. Town board seats are at large. The polling place for all elections and all wards is the town hall in the community room.
The town has a volunteer fire department with 35 members. The fire chief is Frank Bauers. If you have a fire emergency, dial 911. The fire department has an annual fund raiser called Summerfest at Fireman's park by the town hall.
You can register to vote at the town hall. You will need proof of residency with your physical address on it such as a driver's license or utility bill. You can also register on the day of the election.
