From:  John Olson, Town Administrator

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. Based on consensus reached at this week’s Special Board Meeting, we will continue normal staffing, operations, and hours through the Governor’s “Safer at Home” order through 4/24.  Most meetings have been cancelled for April.  The brush drop-off is closed through 4/24 and Municipal Court is suspended through May.

  2. The Public Works Committee recommended accepting the apparent low bid from Payne & Dolan for close to 1M for this year’s road improvements – North Shore Dr. (Borg – Delavan Club Dr.) and Valencia & Winter Dr.  This bid was very aggressive and lower than engineering estimates so additional road work and the parking lot paving will be bid out to try and take advantage of logistics and possibly additional completive bidding.  You will be considering this bid and a new pick-up quotation at the “call-in” Board Meeting on 4/21 immediately following the Annual Meeting.  Phone:  425-436-6389, Access Code: 437479.  Public is welcome to call-in and participate in the meetings.   

  3. Cardinal Engineering’s contacts for the 2020 Road Improvements – North Shore Dr., Valencia Dr., and Winter Dr. are 262-249-6544 and/or text “roads” to #91096 to receive project updates. 

  4. All Assessed Values for the Town are available online at    

  5. The Highway Shop is a “free drop-off site” for Waste Oil that is used for heating purposes.  We are currently in low supply.

  6. There is a special legislative session called for tomorrow, but as of right now the polls will be open 7am-8pm for next Tuesday’s election at Community Park.  The deadline to request an Absentee Ballot is 5pm today, but they can now be received up to April 13 and election results will not be known until after that deadline.

  7. Enjoy your quiet weekend!!  Be smart and safe!  Wash your hands!  Call 2-1-1 or resource  As of today, there have been 16 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Walworth County.  0 deaths, 5 are hospitalized, and 9 have recovered.
