 Town-Village Transition

Please note that as we continue our transition into the Village of Yorkville, changes to our email addresses, website, Facebook page and signage will be ongoing. Please be patient during this time of transition, as some of these changes will occur gradually over time.

Village Trustee/Village President Candidate Information

Until such time as the Yorkville Village Board (currently composed of the three sitting Town Board members at the time of the April 3 election) schedules an election for a new Village Board and the Village establishes a nomination period for candidates, nomination papers for positions on that new board (whether Trustee or President) should not be circulated or filled out, as those offices will not officially exist for nomination purposes until those actions are taken. It is expected at this time that such an election will be scheduled in mid- to late April upon the certification of the incorporation referendum by the State of Wisconsin. The period for circulating nomination papers will likely be sometime in late April/early May; based upon the number of votes cast in the April 3 referendum, the range of signatures required for these nomination papers will need to be between 56-112. The preferred date for this election at this time is June 12, 2018; this date is subject to change. Updates will be provided on this website and the Village’s Facebook page as they become available.

Included below is information that individuals interested in running for Village Trustee or Village President can review in advance of the official candidate nomination period:

STH 20/CTH C Roundabout Construction Project

Construction of the Washington Avenue (STH 20)/Spring Street (CTH C) roundabout is scheduled to begin the week of March 5. Traffic on STH 20 will be reduced to one lane in each direction beginning that week for the duration of the project. In mid-March, CTH C north of STH 20 will be closed until late June or early July. Motorists can use STH 20 and the West Frontage Road as a detour around this closure. This project is scheduled for completion in October 2018. Per WisDOT, no other closures are planned beyond that on CTH C north of STH 20. Please direct any questions related to this project to Dan Sellers, WisDOT Southeast Region Communications, at (262) 548-6702 or Daniel.Sellers@dot.wi.gov.
