Date:   July 17, 2015    



Please take time to read this week’s Friday Memo- -a general recap of the week and upcoming news.  As always, should you like more information, I ask that you call the office, e-mail or stop in.  Thanks for your continued support. 



  1. City of Delavan responded they are not interested in pursuing negotiation on an intergovernmental agreement to facilitate extending their water utility to serve the Shores of Delavan Lake subdivision.  You tried.
  2. GMS Excavators is still delayed in beginning the Poplar St. Drain Tile project.  It could be next Monday, 7/27?
  3. The Police Committee has recommended a new ordinance allowing Golf Carts on certain public streets.  You will be voting on this at next Tuesday’s Board Meeting.
  4. Mark Baker has applied for a Conditional Use Permit for grading to construct a new home with pond near North Shore Dr. & Willow Point Dr.  This was recommended by the Plan Commission and will be considered at Tuesday’s Board Meeting.    
  5. Following a 38% renewal increase in the Local Government Property Insurance Fund, you will be considering leaving the Fund and switching to Chubb Insurance for coverage beginning 8/1.  The Fund was eliminated as part of the state budget and we would need to move the coverage eventually.  You will be voting to withdraw from the Fund at Tuesday’s Board Meeting.
  6. You will be voting to participate in the legal costs to not exceed 10K to help facilitate and solve the Borg Dam ownership conflicts.
  7. Community Park Building options will also be discussed the Board Meeting.  You will be considering a 5K proposal from DePietro Architects for preliminary building plans and reviews.
  8. All Assessed Values for the Town are available online at accurateassessor.com.    
  9. The Highway Shop is a “free drop-off site” for Waste Oil that is used for heating purposes.  We are currently in low supply.
  10. Enjoy your weekend! I will be out of the office next week.
