Misc. Changes due to COVID-19

COVID-19 is affecting the way our local governments and organizations are doing their work. Here’s a list of things you might want to know about, but which don’t fit neatly into any other categories:

The Mercer Transfer site is open, but requests a change in procedures: “People must place their own garbage into the correct area and remain the safe distance of 6 feet away from the workers.” See the Town of Mercer’s website at www.townofmercer.com for information on this and other changes to town services.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Office of Open Government has issued additional guidance on holding open meetings remotely. Government bodies that decide to hold remote meetings must still ensure that their meetings are appropriately noticed and open to the public. Click here for more information.
