Emergency Management

The Boy Scout camp has an emergency siren like the one being put in the county park.  Their siren will be tested once a week and used only during severe weather or if there is a lost camper. 


Mauston Ambulance is searching for a full-time paramedic.  They have received a flex grant and will be applying for funds from the Funding Assistance Program grant.



After accepting Scott Construction’s road bid it was determined that there will be money left in the budget for additional work.  The proposed work would be on Beach Drive and to remove the section of 37th no longer in use after the new road was constructed.



Work in the park should start soon.  It is hoped that the park can be open during construction only closing the section being worked on.



9 permits were issued in May. 7 were for new homes.  37 new home permits have been issued year to date.
