Kronenwetter Celebrates

On November 5, 2002, voters in the Town of Kronenwetter chose by referendum to incorporate the west portion of Kronenwetter as a village.  That action became effective on November 20, 2002.  On February 24, 2003, the Village of Kronenwetter annexed the remaining sections of the original township that then dissolved as a legal entity.  Ten years later, Kronenwetter now has a population of 7,266 residents and is Wisconsin’s largest village by size at over 52 square miles.

Following incorporation, the influx of residents resulted in a need to provide additional infrastructure and public safety services.  In 2004, the Kronenwetter Police Department was formed and has since become a full-time agency.  Village operations grew along with the services provided and, in 2007, Kronenwetter completed a major expansion of the Municipal Center.  It is now ADA compliant and includes the Police Department, an expanded Fire Department, a courtroom, and remodeled office and reception areas.

To mark its 10-year anniversary, the Village is launching an updated and improved website at  The Village contracted with TOWN Web Design, Inc., a company that specializes in designing and hosting websites for municipalities, and has worked on the project with them for several months.  The redesigned website incorporates more user-friendly features and an expanded economic development section that will be completed in the coming months.
