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. 



  • Short Board Meeting agenda planned for next Tuesday.
  • The Plan Commission recommended the Haish variance to allow the 2nd Floor bedroom addition at 1433 North Shore Park Lane. You discussed this at COW and will be voting on this at the Board Meeting.
  • You will also be voting on the Community Park Watershed project. A planned vegetated bio-swale cobblestone infiltration channel with native wetland plantings installed from South Shore Dr. to the lakefront.       And upstream from South Shore Dr. additional bank stabilization with riprap and check dams are planned for installation. You will be voting on this specific plan to support the DNR grant application by Peter Berrini. This project was listed as one of the top priorities of the Delavan Lake Watershed Plan.
