To:                  Town Board Members

From: John Olson, Town Administrator

Date:   May 21, 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. You voted to award the low bid of $32,400 by GMS Excavators for the Poplar St. Drain Tile project.  Preconstruction meeting is scheduled for next Thursday and I will be clarifying the details with property owners who are interested in the additional “tees” for future sump pump connection.  The property owner will be responsible for the additional $350 “tee” cost AND any future work they would contract to connect their Sump Pump.  2 more property owners expressed “tee” interest yesterday, and we now have 7 properties total.
  2. Rich Scholze is working with Chicago Title to research the historical ownership transfers of the Borg Dam property.  Chicago Title is also researching the Community Park property for any deed restrictions or limits on use for a new park building.  I have not heard any results yet. 
  3. Very disappointed in the City of Delavan’s recent vote to not allow future negotiation on a possible municipal boundary agreement.  Without an agreement, the Shores of Delavan Lake (Shodeen) subdivision cannot begin development and help provide needed storm water drainage relief to the Inlet Oaks Subdivision.  Read this week’s article in the Delavan Enterprise for more details. 
  4. Upcoming event:  Town of Delavan Fire Dept.’s Pancake Breakfast at the main Fire Station this Sunday, 5/24 from 7:00am to Noon.
  5. Upcoming event:  Lakefest, Saturday, June 6 at Community Park.  Delavanlakefest.com
  6. Upcoming event:  “Summer Evening at The Lake Event” hosted by the Delavan Lake Improvement Association on June 18 at the Yacht Club.  RSVP to info@delavan-lake.org 
  7. All Assessed Values for the Town are available online at accurateassessor.com.    
  8. The Highway Shop is a “free drop-off site” for Waste Oil that is used for heating purposes.  We are currently in low supply.
  9. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!
