Boards & Commissions

The Village of Arena encourages citizens to take an active interest in their community.  Commissions and committees advise the Village Board on policy issues before the Board makes final decisions.  Commissioners and appointed board and committee members are a critical part of local government.  Become involved in planning for the future of the Village by either running for the Village Board or serving as one of our appointed committee or commission members.

If you are interested in becoming a member of any board, committee, or commission, or if you know someone that might be interested, please contact the Village Clerk's Office or send a letter or e-mail to express your interest.  

All correspondence is to be sent to:

The Dane-Iowa Wastewater Treatment Facility is a modern plant capable of producing a high quality treated wastewater discharge with state-of-the-art equipment and processes.  The facility was designed and constructed with an eye to the future, both in terms of possible tighter regulatory guidelines, and in terms of potential growth of the participating communities.  The facility processes can be broken down into five separate functional categories.  These include lift station pumping, preliminary treatment, biological treatment, disinfection and final monitoring, and bio-solids processing. The Dane-Iowa Wastewater Commission meets the third Thursday  7:00 pm. The Commission meets at the Dane-Iowa Wastewater facility located on Mahocker Rd, in Mazomanie.
