Welcome to the Town of Colfax, WI

We are a local township of approximately 1,299 residents in West Central Wisconsin located in a peaceful, rural setting amid rolling hills and vast farmland in Dunn County, Wisconsin. We are just 25 minutes away from the cities of Menomonie, Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls and Bloomer, Wisconsin. Our children are served by the School Districts of Colfax and Elk Mound, Wisconsin.

We strive to provide our residents and the general public with useful and important information about our town government, current issues, events, and services.

Solid Waste notice

May 2nd, 2022

Notice of past due Solid Waste & Recycling permits were just mailed out.  The 2022 season was previously billed out early December. The 2021 season was the first year this was billed out and many of you may not have paid until late fall/early winter.  Please do not confuse the 2022 billing with the amount you may have just paid last Nov or Dec.   Please email Kyra at treasurer@townofcolfax.com if you feel you were billed in error.  She will need proof of payments for both 2021 & 2022.
