Creative Wall at the Hall with Alex Tande

To view Alex's photographs and learn more about his artistic talents, while supporting local creativity and innovation, please plan to stop by the Village Hall, 500 W. Main Street, during business hours. Alex's work will be on display during the months of March and April.
The Waunakee Community School District has made a financial commitment to start a Student Financial Assistance Fund that can support families in need. The district is committed to ensuring that all students and families can participate in their school community regardless of a family’s ability to pay. A district-wide committee, including representatives from the Board of Education, administrators, staff, and students, has been created to establish guidelines for this initiative. They are seeking the community’s help in raising the necessary funds. The goal is to raise $25,000.
Donations will be used to fund need-based scholarships for things such as field trips, memory books, and other district-sponsored activities that require fees. Your donation can help create a positive, inclusive environment in all of our schools. Donate

Staff will be changing out all electric meters and will be going to every home and business to do this.
The water department will be contacting every customer over the next +/- four years as part of a water meter change out project. Water department staff will need to access the meters which are generally located in the basement of homes and businesses in order to install a new meter.

Storm Drain Murals in Waunakee and Westport
The Town of Westport is part of the Madison Area Municipal Stormwater Partnership and as part of their stormwater permit they are required to undertake information and education. Storm drain murals were part of that education element this year. Check out the poster HERE featuring Waunakee and Westport drain murals. Have you seen the cool mural near the intersection of Woodland Drive and Mill Road in Westport? Thanks to Jessica and Barry from the Town for heading the project for Westport and Christal Campbell at the County for coming up with the neat idea!
