As a proactive and responsible measure to COVID-19, the Treasurer’s Office is encouraging the community to practice the social distancing guidelines as recommended by the Waupaca County Health Department, Waupaca County Emergency Management Department, Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  We urge citizens to postpone in-person visits to the courthouse until further notice.  For any business with the county, please phone ahead as many inquiries can be resolved via phone and e-mail.

Additionally, you may experience some delays in communication from our office as we work to ensure and adapt staffing to meet the functional needs of our office.  We appreciate your patience and support during this time.

This situation is dynamic and rapidly evolving.  For the most up to date and reliable information regarding COVID-19 in Waupaca County, please visit
