Drug Drop Box
The McFarland Police Department, in conjunction with Safer Communities of Dane County, is sponsoring a permanent drug drop receptacle located in the foyer of the Municipal Center. The purpose of the receptacle is to provide a place for residents to dispose of unwanted prescription medications. The receptacle is not intended for commercial or business use.
The Department's hope is that the receptacle will be utilized by citizens, thereby providing a safer environment for our children. Access to unused medications is a leading cause of serious illness and death to young children.

Snow Emergency Declaration
In the event of a major snow incident or other circumstance requiring an unusual degree of snow removal, the Chief of Police may declare a snow emergency. This means that no vehicles or other objects may be parked on any portion of a street or roadway, generally between 1 am and 7 am. The Chief of Police does reserve the right to alter these time frames depending on the severity of the snow storm. Residents are encouraged to listen to local radio and/or television broadcasts, check the village website or view the local cable channel for snow emergency declaration information whenever a major snow storm is predicted or expected.
