  • Due to the Corona Virus, the Heavy Trash Pick Up scheduled for Monday, June 1 will be for excess household generated trash ONLY. All excess household trash must be contained, either bagged or in trash cans. There will be no pick up of large items such as furniture, bedding, appliances, etc. with this first Heavy Trash Pick Up.

  • Due to the closure of the Town offices, we will be extending all golf cart registration renewals that are due in May, until June 1, 2020. We will reassess in late May and keep everyone updated. Also, no VIN or HIN checks will be done during this time, per Gov. Holcomb’s executive order.

    This Spring’s leaf pick up will be done on an as-needed basis rather than daily for a specified period of time. When there are enough leaves to fill the leaf vac, Bob and Guy will pick up, weather permitting. Please have your leaves raked to the road for pick up.

Fire Prevention Month, the Fremont Fire Department Displays Their State of Art Equipment
[go to photo gallery]


As part of Fire Prevention month, the Fremont Fire Department came out to Clear Lake Monday evening to do a demonstration of some of their state of the art equipment to include four of their trucks, the fire rescue boat as well as one truck from Orland.

This included the ladder truck and Engine 22 which combined were able to pump 2800 gallons per minute from the lake in less than 30 minutes. This was truly a feat to see as evidenced by all by standers.

A huge thank you to John Wilhelm and Eric Hufnagle who worked to bring this special event to Clear Lake as part of a collaboration of between the Clear Lake Association, the Fremont Fire Department and the Town of Clear Lake.

We hope to see you Saturday, October 5 between 9:30-11:30 at the Town Hall where there will be a fire extinguisher demonstration and hands on training by a certified fire instructor. This is an important skill as a fire doubles in size every 30-40 seconds.
Looking forward to seeing you Saturday.
