Village Encouraging Absentee Voting




Hello voters!  Did you know you have options to cast your ballot for the April 7, 2020 election (and every election). 

 For the safety of our Clerk and poll workers we are strongly encouraging voters to vote absentee.

 If you know of an elderly person who may need help requesting a ballot or making a copy of their photo ID please reach out to them and offer to help.  Photos of ID can be taken on your phone and emailed to the clerk at [email protected].

 Absentee Voting – Here are some options to do vote absentee:

 1.       Request an absentee ballot online at prior to April 2nd, and a ballot will be mailed to you. 

 2.       Voters may also request a mailed ballot in writing to the Village Clerk but be sure to include a copy of your photo ID with your request.  This works great for travelers; those who have a suppressed immune system; or voters who just can’t make it to Village Office during working hours. 

 3.       Go to the Clerk’s office and absentee vote in person Monday – Thursday 8-4:30. Reminder bring your ID.  In-person voting ends on Thursday, April 2rd at 4:30 pm so plan ahead.

 Are you registered?  You must be registered to vote in order to request an absentee ballot.  If you have not registered yet you can do one of the following:

 1.      Register online at by 11:59pm on March30th. Registering online requires that you already have a valid, unexpired Wisconsin driver’s license or Wisconsin state ID card. The address, name, date of birth, and driver license number you are using to register to vote must match the information that DMV has on file for you. If you need to update your address with DMV, you can do so online at

 2.      Fill out the attached registration form and provide a copy of your proof of residence from the list attached and return it to your Clerk’s office. 

 3.       The last day to register to vote in the Clerk’s office is Thursday April 2nd. 

 Please note that all requests can be mailed or dropped off in the drop box. 

 As of today March 25th, the election scheduled for April 7th will still be held at the Fire Station.

Gov. Evers Announces Federal Approval of Disaster Loans for Small Businesses

Gov. Evers Announces Federal Approval of Disaster Loans for Small Businesses
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers announced today that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has approved Wisconsin’s request for small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to access low-interest federal disaster loans.

“This is very good news for Wisconsin businesses that have already suffered financial losses due to the COVID-19 outbreak,” he said. “With the SBA loans now available to our state, small businesses and their employees have a little more certainty over their financial futures. This is another step in providing much-needed assistance to Wisconsin’s small businesses.”

With unprecedented demand for the loans nationwide, processing of the applications may be delayed. 

“We are encouraging business owners to reach out to SBA’s partners [mentioned below] and to SBA’s offices with their questions to help the loan application process go as smoothly as possible,” said Wisconsin’s SBA district director, Eric Ness.

Under the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, businesses and non-profits may qualify for up to $2 million in loans to cover losses resulting from the pandemic. The interest rate on the loans is 3.75% for for-profit businesses and 2.75% for nonprofits. Participants may be able to extend payments for up to 30 years.

Businesses and non-profits can begin their loan applications at The Wisconsin Small Business Development (SBDC) Network and it partners are helping small businesses apply for federal disaster loans to mitigate the substantial economic injury as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Wisconsin SBDC, a resource partner of the SBA, has created a web page to help business owners understand the qualifications and application process. That web page is available here. Consultants across the network’s 13 locations are working remotely via phone, email and virtual tools to assist clients.

The Wisconsin SBA and its other SBA resource partners – including WWBIC, Western Wisconsin Women’s Business Center, SCORE and Veterans Business Outreach Center – are also working to assist their clients.

Additional business resources can be found on Wisconsin SBDC’s website and Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship’s website, The UW System is sharing updates regularly at

As part of the application process, businesses will be asked to supply the following information:   

  • Tax Information Authorization (IRS Form 4506T) for the applicant, principals and affiliates.
  • Complete copies of the most recent Federal Income Tax Return.
  • Schedule of Liabilities (SBA Form 2202).
  • Personal Financial Statement (SBA Form 413).
  • Profit and loss statements
  • Monthly sales figures (SBA Form 1368)
