Frequently Asked Questions

Fire Number Signs:

To request a fire number sign, aka your address, contact the Adams County Treasurer's office at (608) 339-4202.  There is a form that needs to be filled out by the property owner and then the Town of Dell Prairie is notified of the new address.  The town will order your fire number sign and the road crew will take care of notifying digger's Hotline, if needed, and will install the sign.  After the sign has been placed, you will receive a bill from the town for $75.00.  Your fire number sign is your lifeline in the event of an emergency!
