Town News & Notices

Appleton Wheel Tax

City of Appleton's vote to approve a "wheel tax." The DMV will now be adding $20.00 fees to vehicle registration renewals to those that are listed as being kept in Appleton. If you have in the past appropriately answered the question "Where do you keep your vehicle?" and listed Town or Village of Harrison, you should not be affected by this new wheel tax. However, if you previously indicated that you keep your vehicle in Appleton because that is your Harrison zipcode (54915), then we believe you will be subject to the wheel tax until you correct your information. Please remember your vehicle registration is self-reporting and our office is not responsible for updating or clarifying your renewals. Attached is the information on the Wheel Tax found at the DMV's website.
Owners can email vehiclequestions@dot.wi.gov with "Appleton" in the subject line, or call 608-266-1466 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Referendum Open Houses Scheduled

btn-electionThe Buchanan Town Board approved a referendum to be placed on the ballot for the November 4, 2014 General Election.  The referendum will seek Town elector approval to allow the Town to exceed its State levy limits by up to $350,000 each year for the purposes of road paving and maintenance.

We invite you to one of our Open Houses at the Buchanan Town Hall (N178 County Rd N) to learn about the Town's plan to improve its road maintenance and the impacts the referendum may present.  A brief presentation will start each session, followed by a short Q&A period.
