Thanks to your patience and support, the County Clerk's Office has maintained operations throughout the ongoing 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.  As we begin to experience more in-person traffic at the courthouse, we continue to seek your support and cooperation.  The health and safety of our community is a top priority.  We all share responsibility for sustaining/improving the health of our community by adhering to the guidance of the Public Health authorities.  With that in mind, phone and e-mail is an appropriate method of handling many forms of county business.  Consider contacting the county before you visit in-person to see if you can skip the trip to the courthouse.  Together we can continue to provide the services you depend upon while moving forward in a safe and resilient way. The County Clerk’s office can be reach by calling 715-258-6200 or by email at jill.lodewegen@co.waupaca.wi.us, dawn.krause@co.waupaca.wi.us or kristy.opperman@co.waupaca.wi.us
