Union Cemetery

A big THANK YOU to Boy Scout Troop 863 for the work they did at the Union Cemetery!  Large boulders were brought in and spaced out to prevent damage to the beautiful wrought iron arch and a new split rail fence was installed along the entrance side of the cemetery.  Amazing job boys!


Bring It!

At all elections now in Wisconsin, voters must show an acceptable photo ID before a ballot will be provided.
More information on this new requirement is available here.

Registration is available on election day, but lines will be long!  Bring your Proof of Residence to the clerk’s office anytime during regular business hours, or mail in the “Wisconsin Voter Registration Application” with a photo copy of your Proof of Residence at least 20 days prior to any election to register early and avoid lines!


Refunds under $5 will not be issued

Certain overpayments of property taxes, permit fees and other monies collected by the town, if under $5, will no longer be issued to the payor.  The Town Board recognizes that the issuance of these refunds sometimes is not cost effective, and is in the interest of the Town to retian nominal overpayments, unless the payor demands a refund.  To see the full resolution passed by the Town Board on December 1, 2015, please click on “Ordinances” under Government above.


Legal Notice Posting Locations have changed

Pursuant to 2015 Senate Bill 137, signed into law on November 11, 2015, a municipality that opts to post a legal notice in lieu of publication may, instead of posting the notice in three public places, post the notice in one public place and publish the notice on the municipality’s website. Prior to this, the Town of Sherman posted in three public places: The Town Hall, National Exchange Bank and Trust, and MSM Mobil. The Town Board of Supervisors of the Town of Sherman recognized this newly enacted law at its December 1, 2015 board meeting by passing Resolution #2015-13 “Resolution to Revise Local Legal Posting Locations”.  The new posting locations will be at the town hall, located at W6566 STH 144 (Silver Creek Fire Department) and on the town’s website.  To view the complete resolution, please see “Ordinances” page under Government.
