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.
