Placement of Emergency Response Numbers

Columbia County ordinance Title 28 states all Emergency Response Number Signs are to be placed approximately five (5) feet to the right (facing the home) of the driveway right-of-way at the edge of the road right-of-way.

The Town of West Point places each Emergency Response Number Signs for each town resident in the correct location.

It is very important NOT to move the Emergency Response Number Sign as emergency (fire and ambulance) look for the signs to be in the correct location.

2016 Property and Personal Taxes

2/2/2017 – 1st installment tax payments were due postmarked by January 31, 2017. However, Wiscsonsin State Statue 74.11 allows for a 5 business day grace period for accepting timely property tax payments.  For 2016, the grace period goes through Tuesday February 7, 2017.  This is not a “postmark by” date.  Rather, payments MUST be in the Treasurer’s hands by Tuesday February 7, 2017 in order to be considered timely.

After February 7, 2017 all outstanding 2016 property tax payments need to be made directly to the Columbia County Treasurer, PO Box 198 Portage WI 53901.  Interest and penalties will be assessed by the County Treasurer on late tax payments.

For delinquent taxes please contact the Columbia County Treasurer at (608) 742-9613.
