Welcome to the official Village of Mukwonago website. Mukwonago is a thriving community rich in historical integrity while balancing a guided plan for future development and redevelopment.
We are located 30 miles west of Milwaukee at the intersection of Highway ‘83’ and Interstate ’43.’ We are home to more than 7,500 residents and numerous commercial and industrial businesses. The Village prides itself on balancing quality of life with economic well-being.
Fire Hydrant Snow Removal
The Mukwonago Fire Department is requesting that residents and business owners keep fire hydrants on or adjacent to their property free from obstruction of snow during the winter season. If possible, a three-foot radius clearance would be appreciated. During a fire, seconds count, and firefighters can't afford to spend time gaining access to the hydrant.
Thank you for keeping our community safe!
Keep Natural Gas Meters, Vents Clear of Snow and Ice
When snowfall is heavy, remember to keep your furnace vents and natural gas meters clear of snow and ice. Keeping furnace intake and exhaust vents clear of snow and ice is an important safety precaution to prevent build up of carbon monoxide inside homes and buildings. A blocked vent also can affect the performance of the furnace, which may not run properly or at all when the intake or exhaust vent is blocked.
