Due to the extreme cold weather that is predicted this week, Green County Emergency Management has coordinated with several communities to provide emergency warming centers. These centers will be available from 5:00 pm on Saturday January 16, through noon on Friday, January 22, 2016. If you need this assistance or know someone who does,  please call the Green County Crisis Hotline at 888-552-6642, United Way 211, local police department or the Green County Sheriff’s Office at 328-9400.


These centers are meant as a place for folks to come and warm up as food and other amenities are not provided.  Persons who need overnight or longer shelter, such as their furnace being out would be more comfortable and provided for at a friend, relative’s home or a hotel. There is an increasing number of homeless people in Green County and they are encouraged to come to these centers. If long term accommodations are needed there are agencies that can be contacted that may be able to provide the help needed. 














Town Hall Expansion/Remodel Project

We are so excited that Anderson Construction has begun the expansion project. You may have noticed the orange fence surrounding the property. So far the footings have been installed.

We hope to be in our new home in April 2016



 2016 Town of New Glarus Adopted Budget


Pioneer Road Reconstruction

At the May 26 meeting, Tim Schleeper of Vierbicher reported that a number of companies took out bidding documents for the Pioneer Road Reconstruction Project but only Rock Road submitted a bid. Schleeper felt there were too many areas in the bid that were too far off estimated costs and recommended that all bids be rejected and rebid at the beginning of 2016.

The Town Board voted unanimously to reject the bid and rebid the entire project with two phases and an additional addendum for conduit. New Glarus Town Chairman also noted that he wanted to be assured that the Town will have the flexibility with the new bids to choose portions of the project as best suited for the Town.
