COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update for Town of Ledgeview
UPDATED 3/24/2020 3:00pm:
As the Town of Ledgeview has been deemed to provide essential governmental functions, per Governor Evers Safer at Home Order, we are looking to limit the potential exposure at municipal buildings to protect staff and the general public. This will also help us maintain our ability to continue providing essential services. Please call or email the respective departments to learn what alternate options there are to conduct business over the phone, email or other technology. A staff directory is available here: https://www.ledgeviewwisconsin.com/about-us/town-staff/.
The Ledgeview Community Center is closed, but for the exception of in-person absentee or “early voting”. In-person voting is available Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:00pm.
ABSENTEE “EARLY” VOTING:
April 7, 2020, Spring Election and Presidential Preference Vote

To request a ballot be mailed to you at home please visit the MyVote website (https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us ) using Google Chrome as your web browser.

Currently, Election Day, Tuesday, April 7, will also serve as an opportunity to cast a vote in person at the polls from 7:00 a m – 8:00 p.m.; however, to reiterate, the Wisconsin Elections Commission strongly recommends that anyone planning to vote should request to have an absentee ballot mailed to them as soon as possible.

Loose bags are not acceptable and any items placed outside the cart will not be collected. This procedure is necessary to keep our employees from handling items that may be potentially contaminated with the virus and minimize the spread of the virus to employees, customers and the public. Please ensure that all refuse and recycling is properly contained in the cart in order to be picked up. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with this request.
TOWN GOVERNMENT MEETINGS:
All non-essential Town committee meetings will be cancelled indefinitely immediately. For the moment Town Board meetings will continue with only essential agenda items.

Town Board members will be participating remotely and the public will be provided information on how to access the meetings via telephonic conference.

Please practice social distancing and avoid close contact with others as you visit our parks and trails. The CDC recommends a minimum of 6 feet distance to help reduce the risk of spread between individuals.
Please Pick Up After Your Pet. It doesn’t take much to remember that we have pets in our community. In fact, if you don’t watch your step, you’re liable to step in one such reminder! Besides being unsightly and smelly, animal waste can be hazardous to the health of our children as well as other pets and animals. One of the most common forms of disease transmission between dogs is through fecal matter. When walking your dog in our community, remember that it should be leashed. Also, it is important to remember to immediately clean up after your pet. Take along a baggie with you to pick up waste with and then dispose of it properly. By taking a few simple steps to clean up after your pet, you can contribute not only to the beautification of our community, but also towards the elimination of one of the most irritating nuisances in our community. Remember, dogs and pets are not allowed in public conservancies or parks. Remember, personal responsibility extends to being responsible for your pet. Thank you for your cooperation!
(Rule #1: Pick up #2)
