Welcome To The Town Of Buffalo 



1960 - 2021



1997 - 2021

On Thursday, March 11, 2021, the Town of Buffalo lost a good friend and dedicated worker to the improvement of the town and its citizens.  Dennis will be greatly missed and forever remembered.


Tuesday, April 6 election results for Town of Buffalo Board Officers:  

Chairman:   Steve James                                                                                                         Supervisor 1:  Claire Waters                                                                                                       Supervisor 2:  Chris Drazkowski                                                                                                  Constable: Donald Bittner



#2 Town or Township?

Sometimes confusing when dealing with local government is the use of the term "township" which is a geographic survey unit not a government subdivision and thus has no powers or duties,  Minnesota uses "townships" and even some State of Wis. and county documents use  "township" but the correct term for a local Wis. government unit is "town." The Town of Buffalo is one of 17 towns in Buffalo County (also 4 cities and 2 villages). It is the largest town, by population, in Buffalo County. Town boundaries are drawn by a county or circuit court. In 1848, Wisconsin Territory became the 30th state admitted to the union. Buffalo County was created in 1853 and the Town of Buffalo was granted legal status as a "town" in 1854.


Seasonal weight restrictions on Buffalo County Highways imposed on March 8, 2021 have been discontinued effective Monday, April 5, 2021


NOTICE: Pursuant to State of Wisconsin Supreme Court action, there is no mask (face covering) mandate in the State of Wisconsin. The wearing of masks in the Town of Buffalo Town Hall is optional as of April 5, 2021. Town administrators and election officials will continue to provide appropriate Covid-19 safety protocol in order to help ensure the health and well-being of our citizens.


The TOB Town Hall is again available for rental purposes, depending on dates and with certain conditions, limitations applied. Contact Claire Waters for availability and details. 


ROUTE2RECOVERY Grant:  We are pleased that because of the work of our Clerk/Treasurer and Deputy Clerk/Treasurer, we have received grant funds for approximately $12,600 toward expenses associated with Covid19. This included new election equipment, blow dryers in town hall restrooms, and other miscellaneous expenses.


TOWN HALL NEWS:  New floors have been installed in the kitchen and storage room of the hall.  Special thank you to Claire Waters and husband, Denny, for some nice improvements to kitchen. Also we received notice from Buffalo County Health Dept. that the town hall water was tested and found to be safe for drinking.  Park well will be tested in the Spring.


Another new addition to the town hall is a nice bench outside purchased and installed by Donald Merchlewitz and family in memory of Louise Merchlewitz.


Appreciation also to Terry Duellman for helping us replace a worn-out flag and rotted rope at the hall.


Occasionaly, there is an issue or announcement related to town business that seems to rise to the need to make contact with as many citizens as possible. One timely way to do this is through email contact. If you are not on the town's contact email list and would like to be, please contact [email protected]om.  This is used for emergency/important town business ONLY.


Thanks to CAPX funds commissioned by the CAPX Advisory Committee, our Town Hall area (inside & outside) and the park area are now monitored by motion sensing cameras. This is for the safety and security of our citizens who utilize the hall and park.  Images are only viewed in the event of an activity or event which needs to be revisited such as vandelism, injury, etc. 


UPDATE ON FLOOD DAMAGE:  Following the July 2017 storm, the Town of Buffalo submitted a flood damage report that included 13 specific projects that needed to be addressed with maintenance or repair.  FEMA approved a reimbursement of $105,728 and the State an additional $17,621 plus $6,167 for administration costs for a total of $129,516 or approximately 80% of the related costs. The project has been closed since December 31, 2019. We are still waiting for the $6,167 of state reimbursement for administration costs (We are not alone in waiting for FEMA promised funds. The county  and several area towns are in same situation.) We just received word that, because of Covid caused issues,  it could be as late as October, 2021 before we receive the final FEMA payment.


The new fire/address signage (sign,post,brackets and install) cost approximately $40 each. Buffalo County is paying one-half and Town of Buffalo (using CAPX funds) is paying one-half so residents will have no fee assessment for the replacement signs.  Residents are responsible for care and maintenance of the signs. Please be aware that sign placement is determined by Buffalo County Zoning guidelines following emergency response directives.


There have been some questions about the new fire station (Officially it is the Ft. City Public Safety Bldg) now in construction.  In June 2019, our town and each of the other muncipalities that form the Fountain City Fire Assn., made a commitment of up to $200,000 toward the development of the new fire station.  As of July 21, our town will have made payments of $175,000 ($87,500 each from the town and CAPX). Fortunately, we have been able to do this without borrowing funds and/or adding special tax assessments but it will be a strain on the town budget.  Donations of any amount are encouraged and very welcome as each dollar will potentially help with this significant commitment. Donations can be made to the Ft. City Fire Assn or to the Town of Buffalo. We thank several local residents/businesses who have made donations.































Guess what?  Have a reunion, birthday party, graduation or just a plain ole family gathering? Are you aware the town hall is available for rent?

Full kitchen, RR facilities, air conditioning, plenty of tables & chairs, use of park.  Special rate for multiple days
