Mayor Steve Olson

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website for the City of Franklin, Wisconsin! We are pleased that you have chosen to visit our community on line.  I invite you to explore our entire website and become acquainted with the City of Franklin and all that we have to offer.

Franklin citizens have the best of both worlds. While Franklin takes pride in being a safe, family-oriented community  supported by a strong system of schools;

Franklin  also  promotes  a  strong business  climate  and consistently ranks among the fastest growing communities in Wisconsin.  Franklin’s low municipal tax rates, strategic location, and convenient access to multiple major transportation corridors and Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport make Franklin a premier location for new businesses.

It is no wonder that Franklin has been recognized by Money magazine as one of the “Top 100 Best Places to Live” and was designated a “City of the Future” by Foreign Direct Investment magazine.  All of this is evidence that Franklin is a highly desirable community in which to work and live.  We encourage you to consider Franklin if you are either starting a new business or plan to re-locate.  Join us in our vision to continually enhance the quality of life for present and future generations by providing economic growth through the highest quality of residential, recreational, and business development in Southeastern Wisconsin.

While this website provides a lot of information, we also have a very capable staff that can help you with inquiries that are more specific.  Contact information is available throughout this site for all elected officials and City departments.  I invite you to contact us as needs arise or to answer any of your questions.

Steve Olson, Mayor
City of Franklin
