Wega offers cooling shelters

Extreme heat forecast for week of July 16-20

Weyauwega City Hall and Weyauwega Public Library are offering their facilities as places to cool off during an anticipated heat wave this week.

Temperatures are expected to reach 90 degrees on Tuesday and 93 degrees on Friday.

“A long period of heat and humidity is expected this week,” according to the national Weather Service in Green Bay. “Air temperatures well into the 80s and lower 90s, combined with humid conditions could push afternoon heat index values well into the 90s and close to 100 degrees.”

City hall is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The library is open 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, and 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

Both facilities are available to people seeking relief beginning Tuesday.

“City hall has a great community room where you can relax and cool off or stop in at the Weyauwega Library where you can grab a good book, magazine or newspaper to read while you cool off,” according to city administrator Jeremy Schroeder.

Schroeder encourages residents to be safe and check on neighbors, children, elderly and pets during the heat wave.

For more information, contact city hall at 920-867-2630 or the library at 920-867-3742.
