July 21, 2020  

PSC of Wisconsin has lifted the moratorium and delinquent notices were sent out July 15th. If you received a notice and need to set up repayment arrangements, please contact TMU as soon as possible to avoid any disruption in service.  If you send in a partial payment with no directions for future payment agreement, the Utility may still proceed with the disconnection process.  We would rather have a Deferred Payment Agreement in place before shut off notices are posted on July 24th for possible disconnection on July 27th. 



Applications for Absentee Ballots are now available at a self-serve station in the Village Community Center during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 8:00AM to 4:30PM. Complete form and place in the Village Utility Payment box outside the front door for processing.

There are several ways registered voters can request absentee ballots. If they have internet access, the easiest way is to sign up at

MyVote Wisconsin, MyVote WI

Just look for the “Vote Absentee” button near the top of the page. On a mobile phone, use the menu button in the upper right corner of the website. There is a three-step process that starts with putting in your name and date of birth, followed by requesting your ballot. If you don’t already have a photo ID on file with your clerk’s office, you can upload a copy. Mobile phone users can take a picture and upload it to MyVote. Absentee ballot requests submitted this way go directly to your clerk’s office, and you can track your ballot by returning to the website.

Voters can also request absentee ballots by mailing, emailing or faxing their municipal clerk’s office (information below). The deadline for registered voters to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you is the Thursday before the Election. However, voters are urged not to wait, due to possible delays in mail delivery.

Voter should include name, address, Election(s) they are requesting absentee ballot for, and mailing address if different than residence address. These requests must be accompanied by a copy of your photo ID.   If you already have a photo ID on file from previous absentee requests under your current registration, you will not need to provide it again.

Voters who are indefinitely confined, meaning they may have difficulty getting to the polls for reason of age, illness, infirmity, or disability are not required to provide a photo ID.  Voters in care facilities can have a representative of the facility confirm the resident’s identity instead of providing a photo ID.  More information on photo ID and exemptions can be found at

Your absentee ballot must be received in your clerk’s office or at your polling place by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Voting an absentee ballot in person

Starting July 28, 2020 you may also request and vote an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office. You will need to call for an appointment anytime Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm  as our office is currently closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

No in-person absentee voting may occur on the day before the election.

UPDATES FROM THE TREMPEALEAU POOL – As you all know, the process of opening and operating the pool (or any business) has been a challenge this summer. We are continually evaluating how things are going and what we can do to improve things. The following changes will be taking place as we open up again.

GLIDE FIT – This class will be moved to Wednesday nights from 7:00-7:45pm.
HIIT the WATER – This class is canceled for now. If our attendance picks up, then we may put it back into the schedule.
ZUMBA with KRISTY – A minimum of 5 participants will be needed to have some ZUMBA FUN on Saturday mornings from 9-10am. This is a fun class and easily adapted for a variety of fitness levels. Each class is $5.00.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY LAP SWIMS – Lap swims on Saturdays and Sundays will be 12-1pm ONLY. Additional lap swim times for Saturday and Sunday may be added based on demand.
DAILY ADMISSION – Several people have shared with me the need for daily admissions. I am working on what that will look like and hope to have a plan in place soon. Pool patrons will still need to REGISTER through the Pool Office to be eligible for daily admission. More information about the process to register and purchase daily admissions will be released on Friday, June 26th.
OPENING TO OTHER TOWNSHIPS – We will continually monitor our attendance numbers as well as the COVID Compass through Trempealeau County. This will help us determine if we are able to open up to our neighboring townships.
