While the County Board of Supervisors has passed an ordinance to allow the operation of ATV/UTV’s on county roads, they are not open until the roads are properly signed.
The Buffalo County Trail Riders are responsible for the cost of the signs and will be working with the Buffalo County Highway Department on the installation.
Town roads are under the jurisdiction of each Town and you should direct questions regarding usage on town roads with your local board.
Please do not use any County road unless you see a sign that officially notifies riders that it is open for ATV/UTV use. Riding on a road that has not been signed will result in financial penalties.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

BUFFALO COUNTY ANNOUNCES COURTHOUSE IS OPEN TO PUBLIC
RECOMMENDS TO STILL CALL FOR APPOINTMENTS
The Buffalo County Human Resources Committee voted on Monday, March 8th to reopen the courthouse to the public through the Sheriff’s Office Entrance door. All other building entrances will remain locked. They encourage citizens who need services to call ahead and make an appointment.
All individuals entering the building may be subject to temperature and symptom screening and are required to wear a mask to protect the health and safety of all employees and visitors unless they are exempt per Emergency Order #1. A temperature kiosk, located in the lobby, is available for self-monitoring. If you have a temperature after two attempts, please do not enter and call the department you need assistance from.
Phone based and online services will continue to be available; access the county website at www.buffalocounty.com for a department directory. Additionally, a secure drop box in the Sheriff’s Office entrance will be monitored frequently during business hours, to file documents with the Clerk of Courts and Register in Probate as well as for recording documents and vital records applications with the Register of Deeds to meet mandatory deadlines.
If you have business with State of Wisconsin and/or USDA/FSA agencies within the Courthouse, please contact the appropriate office by phone before coming to the courthouse. The Department of Motor Vehicle is open Monday and Wednesday 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. for selected services only. DMV Services and information can be found online at www.wisconsindmv.gov.
It is important to note that the coronavirus outbreak is extremely fluid and subject to change. County officials are continually assessing conditions and are in close communications with the Buffalo County Health Department following guidance from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Regular updates are posted on the county’s website at www.buffalocounty.com and the Buffalo County Public Health Facebook page.

We urge Buffalo County residents to maintain at least six feet of distance from others, wear a face covering, avoid gathering with individuals outside of your household, and stay home if possible.
FINAL AFFAIRS PLANNING 2021
Everyone seems to agree that family members need to talk about potential changes in health, long term care needs, inheritance, and estate planning issues before there is a crisis or someone is not able to communicate. Often, we fail to initiate these important conversations around our final affairs until it is too late. Communicating and advance planning can reduce the burden, guilt, and misunderstandings in families. It can also lessen the potential for conflict in a family when others are put in the position of making decisions for loved ones.
To assist people in thinking about the importance of planning for these end-of-life issues, the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Buffalo and Pepin Counties will be holding a free VIRTUAL “Final Affairs” forum on Tuesday, April 13th, 2021 from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
This forum will help people to begin to think about and have conversations around end-of-life decisions. The Final Affairs forum will provide important information, assistance, and resources to attendees to assist in starting these important conversations.
The Final Affairs Forum will have resource people available to share information and their expertise on numerous issues related to end-of-life. Attendees will be able to ask questions and take-home information related to these issues.
The topics covered at this forum by presenters will consist of the Aging and Disability Resource Center information at 9:00am. Hospice information at 9:25am. A Medicare presentation at 10:20am. Funeral Planning at 11:00am, and Legal Affairs at 12:15pm.
This is a free event for residents of Buffalo and Pepin Counties. To register for Final Affairs, please call the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Buffalo and Pepin Counties at 866-578-2372 or
firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for your virtual spot at the forum by April 9th, 2021.
