The recent Supreme Court decision separates the former Town of Williamstown from the Village of Kekoskee and returns the implementation of this decision to the Circuit Court.  The Dodge County Clerk must hold a special Town of Williamstown Elector's Meeting (link to agenda) to reinstate the former Town of Williamstown officers so that business can once again be conducted under that name. For more information, contact the Kekoskee Clerk at [email protected].

A Task Force on Broadband Access was formed in Wisconsin in July of 2020. In support of their activities, the Wisconsin Department of Instruction (DPI) is asking for help to better collect information on internet speeds throughout the state.

Specifically, they are asking each of us to take a moment to participate in an internet speed test by simply visiting speed.measurementlab.net.

Participation is voluntary and important in helping close the digital equity gap across the state. Performing this simple test will help to paint a more accurate picture of the broadband connectivity in our state.

The link will not work on Internet Explorer. Use Google, Microsoft Edge, etc.

Take your INTERNET speed test today!
