In an effort to comply with the Governor’s “Safe at Home” directive, and in continued efforts to reduce the COVID-19 risk for city employees, the City of Whitewater Municipal Building will be physically locking its doors today at Noon. The building will remain closed to the public at all times except those times specifically posted for absentee voting. This closure will remain in force until further notice. Individuals needing assistance from the police department will be able to request assistance via the intercom located on the wall in the Whitewater Street entryway or by calling 262-473-0555 (Option 4). Following are points of clarification on this change.

How is this different from the City closure announced last week? – Last week, the City of Whitewater closed the building to the public and shut down all service counters except the counter for absentee voting.

With the building locked, how can I vote absentee? – The Municipal Building will be unlocked and open for in-person absentee voting at specific times as listed below. The building will remain physically locked at all other times.

  • Thursday 3/26: 1 pm – 5 pm
  • Tuesday 3/31: 8 am – Noon
  • Thursday 4/2: 1 pm – 5 pm

**Residents are encouraged to visit MyVote.WI.gov to request an absentee ballot be mailed to their home.**

What do I do if I need to talk with a police officer? – Individuals needing to speak with a member of the Whitewater Police Department can still request assistance by using the intercom in the Whitewater Street entryway or by calling 262-473-0555 (Option 4)

Are any city departments open? – No services will be accessible from the Municipal building. However, a majority of employees are working from home and can be reached via phone or email. Contact information for employees is available on our website (https://www.whitewater-wi.gov/1) by selecting the Contact Us link at the bottom of each webpage of the site.
