Running for Town Office:

The Town of New Glarus uses the Caucus method for determining who will run for office in the Spring Election. Our Caucus has been scheduled for January 13, 2015.

Any U.S. citizen who is at least 18 years old and has been a resident of the Town of New Glarus for at least 10 days prior to the caucus can participate and nominate candidates. You do not need to be a registered voter to participate. You do not need to be present to be nominated.

The town chairman presides over the caucus, unless that person intends to be a candidate. In that case, the attendees select a presiding officer.

If only one person may be elected to a particular position (Chairman, Supervisor, etc.) and more than two people are nominated, the caucus-goers will take a vote. The two candidates with the most votes will appear on the ballot. A tie can be broken by drawing lots or conducting another vote.

The following Town offices will be Elected at the April 7, 2015 Spring Election:

  • Chairman for a term of two years to succeed Keith Seward
  • 1st Supervisor - for a term of two years to succeed Dean Streiff
  • 2nd Supervisor for a term of two years to succeed Chris Narveson

After the nominations have ended, the municipal clerk must notify all nominees in writing. The nominees then have five days to file a Campaign Registration Statement and a Declaration of Candidacy.

Trash Collection and Recycling:

The Town of New Glarus has completed negotiations for our Trash and Recycling services.

Waste Management will be providing the Town of New Glarus residents with a hybrid system of trash and recycling. Residents will be given the option to upgrade to an automated cart system of collection or can opt-out and keep their current manual curbside trash and recycling collection.

The cart system will be available in the Spring of 2015.
