Dear Residents,

Several weeks ago, Columbia County Solid Waste contacted us with concerning information and with changes made by powers out of our control we had to assess our transfer site. We ran scenarios and from those scenarios implemented changes to the transfer site.


We have continued to monitor information from Columbia County Solid Waste, Governor Tony Evers and with this, have reassessed the transfer site. We are happy to announce on Wednesday April 8th the transfer site will return to its normal set up.


We will be accepting typical product brought to the transfer site.  However, please note that WE ARE NOT ABLE TO TAKE BRUSH at this time because there is a burning ban and we are unable to dispose of it.


We will continue to monitor and assess the transfer site and ask that you please continue to watch the Town of Lodi website and Facebook page for updates.


Please remember, social distancing is still in effect. We will monitor social distancing at the transfer site and ask that you do to. This is for the safety of the transfer site employees and yours.


Thank you for your patients during these unprecedented times,


Town of Lodi

Dear Residents,

As you are well aware of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and how quickly it has impacted numerous countries around the world; we too will do our part to help slow or stop the spread of Covid-19.  In an effort minimize exposure to the town hall employees, effective immediately the town hall will only provide election services.  The Town Clerk/Treasurer and Deputy Clerk/Treasurer have to work at the Town Hall and serve in person absentee voters per elections laws.  If you have other Town business please call or email the town and the clerks will advise how to proceed with helping you.  Located outside the town hall is a drop box, I encourage people to use it to drop off paperwork or payments.  If you have paperwork, packages , applications, surveys etc… to drop off, please call or email in advance for instructions on procedures of receiving those items. 


Additional information and current news on Covid-19 can be found on and


I can’t thank you enough for everyone’s patience and cooperation during these unique and historical times.
