We Want Your Input
The Village of La Farge is developing a Main Street Plan to prepare for the upcoming street construction project in 2021. The goal of this planning process is to develop a plan that creates a vibrant and economically-sustainable Main Street corridor that iis attractive for businesses, residents and visitors. The process includes a market assessment, streetscape planning and design, and development of an Implementation Plan. Stakeholder engagement is critical to developing a successful plan. In that effort, the Village invites anyone interested in the future of the Main Street corridor to participate in the second of four public workshops. The next workshop, being held on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 6 pm at the Emergency Services Building (201 S. Cherry Street, La Farge) will include a presentation of the results of the Market Analysis, as well as gather public input on design preferences for the downtown streetscape. Please join us and provide your input on this important project!
Thursday, April 9, 6pm-8pm
Questions should be directed to Kimberly Walker, Village Clerk, at (608) 625-4422 or by email at email@example.com. This process is being funded by a CDBG-Planning Grant and the Village has contracted with Vierbicher to facilitate this process.

Stay Strong, Stay Safe (3/20/2020)
These are unprecedented times we are living in. There is fear of the unknown. How long will this go on? When are we going to be able to get back to normal? Am I, or a member of my family going to come down with the COVID-19 virus? Everywhere we look we are surrounded by news of the virus; it can be overwhelming. By the time you read this, things will have changed. Information changes by the hour. The La Farge Village staff and officials are working hard to keep up with the latest information and keep our village staff and community safe. As of Friday, March 20, 2020, the village is operating normally. By the time you read this, things will have changed. We are putting safety procedures in place to keep the staff and residents safe. In the coming days or weeks, the village may need to implement our Essential Services Plan to be able to limit the staff exposure while being able to take care of the community. Under this plan, the village office will remain open for as long as possible. The office door will be locked but access can be reached by phone, email, US mail or appointment. The water, sewer and electrical systems will be monitored daily. Garbage will be picked up weekly. A staff member will be available for emergencies. As of now, the election on Tuesday, April 7 is still being held and absentee voting is encouraged. If this plan needs to be implemented, we will announce it on our Website, La Farge Police Department Facebook page, posted at the Village office and in our local newspapers.
Everyday is a challenge, our way of life is temporarily changing, and this can be very stressful. Everywhere you look, Facebook, TV, Internet, even the radio has COVID-19 virus updates and information. Keeping your mental well-being is essential for riding out this storm. I would like to give you another challenge. I challenge each one of you to unplug yourself periodically and stay way from the news. Breathe deeply, read a book, talk to a friend or neighbor, play a game with your family, play the 20 questions game with your family or someone you want to know better or reconnect with, exercise or make your own list of things you can do, want to accomplish, whatever you can do to give yourself a break and take care of you. Stay strong, stay safe.
Cheryl Purvis, La Farge Village President.

The Village President has signed a Proclamation Declaring Emergency in the Village of La Farge, effective March 17, 2020.
The Declaration was made in order to obtain access to any and all additional resources available on the county, state and federal levels.
The Declaration also allows for possible cost recovery, should the village and any business within the village limits incur any costs relating to COVID-19, at the county, state and federal levels.
The Declaration does not reflect any dramatic change in the health at our village, but ensures steps are being taken to ensure adequate capacity to the residents needs if the transmission of COVID-19 reaches critical levels.
