Architectural and Historical Survey

The Village of New Glarus was fortunate to receive a grant through the Wisconsin Historical Society to hire Carol Cartwright to perform an Architectural and Historical Survey of New Glarus, WI.  A copy of that survey can be found HERE.  

Notice of Potential Scam

The Village has received notice of a potential scam involving phone calls to area business and residents regarding the payment of money for utilities.  The phony caller states that the resident or business owner needs to pay money or their utility servers would be disconnected.  Please note that if you receive a phone call like this, that it is a scam.  Do not supply the caller with any financial information. The Village does not inform residents or business owners of potential disconnection via phone, it is only done via a mailed letter. 

The New Glarus Utilities follows the following procedure for handling utility disconnects:

  1. Utility bills are due on the 25th of the month (if the 25th falls on a weekend or holiday, the bill is due the following business day).
  2. If a customer does not pay their utility bill, they will receive a written ten (10) day disconnection notice.  The notice states the customer has until 12:00pm the day of disconnection to make payment.
  3. Twenty four (24) hours prior to a disconnection, a notice is placed on the customer’s door stating that they have until 12:00pm the next day to make payment to avoid being disconnected from utilities.
  4. No notices of disconnection are done over the telephone or email
Leaf Pickup

The Village will again be using the leaf vacuum and Public Works will begin picking up leaves as weather permits the week of October 19th and will continue to pick up leaves through November 27, 2015.  Please rake only leaves (grass and branches cannot be vacuumed up) into the gutter area for pickup with the leaf vacuum.  The compost dumpster will continue to be at the Village Garage for disposal of yard/garden waste.  Please Note:  Bagged leaves will not be picked up.

NO BURNING of leaves will be permitted.

FINAL BRUSH PICK UP: Please note curbside brush pickup has been completed for this season, and will resume again in April, 2016.





New Glarus was established as a Swiss Colony in 1845 and incorporated as a Village in 1901. The Village has retained its Swiss charm with Alpine-style architecture, ethnic festivals and Swiss delicacies. The Village is located in beautiful Green County in south central Wisconsin. We are just 28 miles south of Madison and 17 miles north of Monroe on State Highway 69.
