Explanation of Fire Department Dues Payments

The Division of Industry Services (IS) of the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) is arranging payments to municipalities under the Wisconsin Two-Percent Fire Dues Payments Program. As in past years, Current Year Distribution planned for each municipality is available. The list is first sorted alphabetically by county, and then, within the county, alphabetically in turn by towns, villages and cities. The amount of the check sent to the municipal treasurer is found under “Current Year Distribution.” This online list replaces the mailings that were done in the past to announce the amounts of the payments. If there are questions concerning the list, contact DSPSSBFireDues@Wisconsin.gov.
