City Treasurer

WORK PERMITS:  On July 7, 2017 staff will not be available to issue work permits.   When City staff are unavailable, please refer to the notice below for alternate locations - remember to call locations first for availability!  


2017 Wisconsin Act 11 was signed by Governor Walker yesterday and published today, June 22, 2017. The effective date of this law is June 23, 2017. The law removes the requirement that 16- and 17-year-old minors obtain work permits. This law also changes the terminology and refers to the "employment of minors" instead of child labor.   What this means for you effective June 23, 2017: 

  • 16- and 17-year-old minors do NOT have to obtain a work permit prior to beginning work. You will no longer issue work permits for minors ages 16 or 17.
DOG LICENSES DUE BY 04/01:  You can stop by anytime to get a new one for 2017!   Fees did not change and a friendly reminder to bring your rabies certificate with you. NOTE: State law puts a $5.00 per dog penalty in place for licensing AFTER April 1st of each year.  THANK YOU!   :)
