Good Morning,

After careful consideration, we have decided to close our office area to all non-department individuals at 12:00pm today (Thursday, October 8th). This includes members of the public. We ask that residents  pull up on the scale and remain in their vehicles. Someone from the office will be out to assist you. 

We will operate this way for the next two weeks until October 26th. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding this safety protocol please contact me at (608) 634-2900.  Thank you for your cooperation and stay healthy and safe!
