Welcome to the City of Jefferson, Wisconsin

Jefferson, Wisconsin is a quaint Wisconsin community. Main Street shows off its vintage buildings and steepled churches built by German craftsmen. Two picturesque rivers flow through the middle of town. Our rivers will be a focal point for visitors and residents, so they can float up and catch a concert, meal and even camp along the riverbank. We know what we have is special, because people from big cities keep moving here. It’s also because we’re close by, comfortable, easygoing, hardworking, genuine and fun loving. If the great outdoors are important in your life, then Jefferson should be, too. Because, “We’re Going Outside”.

Keep All of Your Sidewalks Clear of Snow and Ice. This not only ensures the safety of all pedestrians, but is also the law. According to the City of Jefferson Municipal Code, Chapter 240, Section 7, “The owner or occupant of real property shall remove snow and ice from the sidewalks within 24 hours after the end of snowfall.”

Keep Your Mailbox Clear. Help your mail carrier, help you. By keeping your mailbox clear it will ensure that your mail will be delivered to your home on time.

Be Patient. The Streets Department wants to ensure the safety of all drivers, but they need time to properly clear all of the roads. THE MAIN ROADS ARE THE FIRST PRIORITY. Residential roads will be plowed in the order of traffic importance. Please plan ahead to give yourself enough travel time.

Stay Clear of the Plow Trucks. Plowing snow is a very dangerous job. Keep your distance from all plow trucks. Remember that if you can’t see their mirrors, they can’t see you!

By following the above restrictions, the Streets Department will be better able to clear the streets for safe travel. With everyone’s cooperation we can make this winter a successful one!
