Consider CAFO and other Industrial Development Moratorium: The Town Board will be seeking resident's input on establishing a moratorium on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and other Industrial Developments within the Town of New Glarus.

The Potential moratorium will allow the Town of New Glarus time to discuss and potentially regulate health and safety concerns these types of operations bring to the community. The biggest concern to the Town of New Glarus include: surface and ground water contamination and manure spreading operations using town roads not equipped to handle overweight trucking as is allowed for agriculture equipment.

Referendum Supporting Constitutional Amendment "Corporations are Not People and Money is Not Speech": The Town Board has been asked to present the citizens of The Town of New Glarus an opportunity vote on Supporting a Constitutional Amendment "Corporations are Not People and Money is Not Speech." A referendum question will be on the November 2016 ballot asking this question. 

Consider Other Growth Plan Direction:

  • Consider Fiber Optic Conduit Placement
  • Natural Gas
  • Consider Single Access Road Abandonment
  • Discuss new Brush and Tree Policy

The Town Board feels these are all important issues and welcome citizen involvement in helping to shape the future of the Town of New Glarus. Please plan to attend our Annual Meeting, next Tuesday, April 19th at the Swiss Miss Center - 1101 Hwy 69.

 Pioneer Road Reconstruction
April 12, 2016 - Update

Voegeli Landscaping will be cutting trees and grubbing along Pioneer Road from Wednesday, April 13-Wednesday, April 20. You can expect road closures on and off throughout the day as workers cut down trees. The road should reopen each day after 5 p.m. If you have specific questions or concerns, you may contact our office at 527-2390 or contact Tim Schleeper at (608) 826-0532.


The project will begin in April with clearing of trees and other obstacles in the Town Right of Way. Trees that need to be removed will be marked by the Engineer with a large orange X. If a resident would like to retain the wood for personal use, they will need to spray paint a circle around the X. If no other special instructions are needed, the contractor will cut down the tree and leave it for the resident to clear out. If special arrangements are needed, the resident will need to discuss their needs with Town Engineer, Tim Schleeper of Vierbicher (608) 219-5148. If the trees are not marked, they will be cut down and cleared out.


Pioneer Road will be pulverized mid June with reconstruction beginning in late June early July at the section of Pioneer Road close to County Highway O to a location near Klassy Road. The other half will be reconstructed beginning in late July early August. 


The project will include pulverizing the existing asphalt, widening the road, improving sight lines, overlaying with hot-mix asphalt and re-ditching.
