UPDATED February 25, 2021

The Clerk's Office will reopen to the public on Mondays 8-2 starting March 1st, other days by appointment. Please do not enter the Town Hall if you are sick or have ANY possible symptoms of illness. Masks are recommended; if you need something complicated, please call ahead so the Clerk can plan ahead to accommodate you. 

Road Bans will be going on in mid-March: please plan ahead to have your septic or LP service done beforehand. Even though these trucks are "exempt," they are not magically lighter in weight and still cause severe damage to our roads- please do your part and avoid having heavy truck services during the bans.

Reminder: The dump is closed when temps are -20 or below, by order of the Town Board (this includes wind chill).
We have an April 6 Election coming up for Town of Draper Clerk, Treasurer and Supervisors, State School Superintendent and a position on the Winter School Board. If you wish to vote by absentee ballot, please go to myvote.wi.gov or contact the Clerk to request an application. Last years' Calendar Year requests have expired so you will need to fill out a new application.

There was a lot of confusion last year about the "Indefinitely Confined" option on Absentee Applications- please note that this option is intended for those who are truly indefinitely confined, not due to fears of Covid-19. Please contact the clerk if you have questions about your absentee status.

Garbage Drop Off Site Policy: When you go- please observe the new rules- one at a time, stay in your vehicle, sign in, and let the attendant assist you and check what you are throwing in the recycle dumpster. Please follow the Waste Management rules for recycling- no plastic bags allowed in the recycling- there is a video camera on the back of the trucks that captures plastic bags going into the trucks and they fine us!
