Welcome to the Town of Dunn, Dane County, WI

Town Business During COVID-19

In response to the current COVID-19 situation and in accordance with recommendations from Dane County Public Health, social distancing measures are being practiced. Our foremost priority is to protect the health and safety of the Town of Dunn’s residents and employees from coronavirus.

Town services are happening in new ways. Whenever possible, we will assist by email, phone, conference call, or online video meetings. The Town has a drop off/pick-up window for the exchange of documents and signatures that are available by appointment.  Please call ahead or contact the appropriate staff member by email: staff contact list.

We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

November 3rd, 2020 Election Information

I am tracking my ballot on the MyVote.wi.gov website. Why isn’t the site updated to show that I voted?

We are working to individually update each Town of Dunn voter’s record in the database to show their voting activity on November 3. This is time-consuming and must be checked for accuracy before you will see the updates on the MyVote.wi.gov website.  

In Wisconsin, ballots are private and the voting machine that counted each vote does not have any identifying information about the voter. The barcode on the ballot does not identify the voter or update the voting activity. To protect the privacy of the ballots, there is an extra step for recording voting activities. Many municipalities with provisional ballots to resolve will not begin this work until after their Board of Canvass November 9, 2020.

All Town of Dunn ballots that were returned by 8 pm on Election Day were counted on November 3, 2020, by 9:00 pm. There were no provisional ballots. There was one rejected absentee ballot in the town for a voter who passed away prior to Election Day. No other returned absentee ballots were rejected. Thank you for your patience and for your participation in the election!

Town of Dunn Leaf Collection Update - 2020 Changes

There will no longer be any curbside pickup of leaves for the Waubesa locations because funding for the pilot program has ended. Friends of Lake Kegonsa (FOLKS) is sponsoring the continued curbside pick-up for the Kegonsa area. 

For the Kegonsa Area Only: Curbside pick-up will occur on the weekends of November 13-15th and November 27-29th. Leaves should be in your yard ready to be picked up by noon on Friday of these weekends. Only one pass through the route will be made. Kegonsa Addresses Eligible for Curbside Pick-Up

The Town has added 6 new centralized leaf drop-off sites that are available 24/7 to any and all Town residents during the months of October and November or until the first significant snowfall. For more information or to view maps of the drop off site locations, please view the leaf management page by clicking here.

As a reminder, burning leaves is prohibited in leaf management areas.
