Spring is here, Spring is ahead of schedule!

Town board and Road Maintenance personnel are going on a road trip April 29th.  They are traveling all the roads in the Township to reveiw them for winter damage, overall condition, list the possible repairs and more.  This takes the entire day!

Wave to them in appreciation of the great job they do for us and maintaining the roads as they travel past................


The Town has received a few phone calls about dust control for the roads.  Yup, spring has created dust early too!  The control solution purchase will be on the May 6th Regular Town meeting agenda for discussion and possible approval.  Come support the purchase for your gravel road! ! ! !

     Welcome to the Town of Big Bend in Rusk County!   

The Town of Big Bend is located in southern Rusk County, part of the Blue Diamond recreation area and was named for the big bend in the Chippewa River.  Originally it was part of Chippewa County.

We have 35.3 total square miles, 43.6 miles of roads, 32.6 square miles of land and 2.7 square miles of water including the Chippewa River, nine lakes and many streams.  There are two cemeteries, one owned by the Island Lake Cemetery Association and an Indian cemetery owned by the town. The unincorporated village of Island Lake lies within the town's boundaries.  There was, at one time, a grist mill where the current Island Lake Dam is located.  The town was called Emet and had a post office in the general store.  The name of the unicorporated municpality within the Town of Big Bend was changed to Island Lake, and is located along Highway 40.
