Welcome to the Town of Dunn

County Highway AB Bridge Closure

The Town has been notified by Dane County that the County Road AB bridge (by Fish Camp Road) will be closed for traffic due to construction January 14th through April 26th, tentatively. Please contact Dane County’s Highway and Transportation Department at (608) 266-4261 for questions relating to the project.

Holiday Tree Disposal

Due to the discovery of Elongated Hemlock Scale (EHS) on evergreen decorations – i.e. trees, wreaths, bows, swags, etc, all holiday trees should be brought to the Transfer Site as soon as possible after decorations are taken down to be burned. Wreaths, bows and swags must be bagged and then put into the garbage - Pelletteri will not take trees. These decorative evergreens should NOT be composted or left out for the winter as Wisconsin winters will not kill this invasive pest and the potential is high that it will spread.
