March 24, 2020 – All city building are closed to public access
The City of Fennimore has added two more drop boxes at the North end of the Memorial building by the ramp. We have changed our in-person absentee voting to accommodate the social interaction rule set in place. There is a drop box labeled “Applications” where you will find absentee ballot applications with instructions. Please take one, fill it out and return it along with a copy of your photo ID to the locked drop box labeled “Absentee Paperwork.
Once we get the completed form we will send your ballot to you by mail. Please let your friends and neighbors and family know this is available especially if they are not on facebook or internet savvy.
The utility drop box is still available for utility payments and city correspondence. WE hope you will utilize our drop boxes.
Stay safe and healthy!
