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”.

YOUR DRINKING WATER
Jefferson Water Utility will no longer be adding fluoride to the public water system. There is naturally occurring fluoride of .3 parts per million in the water system. If you have a child between the ages of 6 months and 5 years you should contact your physician or dentist regarding fluoride alternatives.

LEAF PICK UP
The City of Jefferson Public Works Department will be starting the Fall leaf pick up on Monday October 9. We ask that residents rake their leaves into the gutters for pick up. Leaves will be picked up in the City streets until either all of the leaves placed in the curb line have been collected or the snow prohibits them from continuing. Please do not mix brush, garbage, pumpkins or any foreign material with leaves, as this will plug the leaf machine. Also note the City does not pick up leaves in the Spring.
Beginning Monday October 9, crews will start at one quadrant in the city and work street to street until the entire city is picked up. It typically takes Public Works crews one week to complete a full round through the city before they begin again so your patience is appreciated.
Residents that do not want to wait for the Public Works crew for leaf pickup are encouraged to take their leaves to the Compost Site located on the north side of Jefferson at the end of Maple Grove Drive. The site is open all day on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday thru the end of November. If you have any questions, please call 674-7737 or 674-7700. The Public Works Department thanks you for your cooperation.
