From the US Census Bureau:
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Census Bureau has adjusted their operational timeline. As the State of Wisconsin begins to reopen, the Census Bureau is beginning to restart our field operations.

The U.S. Census Bureau, in coordination with federal, state and local health officials, will begin our Update/Leave Operation in Wisconsin this week. Census workers will begin to drop off 2020 Census questionnaire packets at front doors in areas where the majority of households do not receive mail at their physical address.


 

The Town of Amberg Community Center is close to the public until further notice due to the current guidelines issues by the federal and state governments over the Coronavirus Crisis.  The treasurer (715-759-5892) and assessor are available by telephone or email. The clerk is available during reduced hours in the office (call first 715-759-5095).

Please keep your distance: stay safe and  stay healthy–our community depends on you!

All Marinette and Menominee County EMS (rescue squads) are in Critical need of volunteers! 

Many of the agencies are running at critically low level of personnel and are in significant need of additional individuals to support the continued operation of services.  Without additional help some squads may be forced to combine services, resulting in ambulances responding from further away or convert to a career/paid operation increasing costs to the public. 

The Town of Amberg is served by Pembine-Dunbar-Beecher Rescue Squad and Wausaukee Rescue Squad.  In order to provide the quality service we expect please volunteer to become an vehicle driver, emergency medical responder, or EMT. You do not need to be an an EMR or EMT to join, drivers are always in need and training is provided for every role!
