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. Cardinal Engineering’s contacts for the 2020 Road Improvements are 262-249-6544 and/or text “roads” to #91096 to receive project updates.  New informational website: 

  2. Advanced Auto, FA19500002 (corner of Prairie Dr. & STH 50) has applied for a Rezone from B-2 & R-5 to B-4 and a Conditional Use Permit to allow for the construction of a new Auto Repair facility.  This will be considered at next Tuesday’s Plan Commission. 

  3. John Berget, 4954 STH 50, (FD2500021A) has submitted a concept plan for a possible future rezone from A-2 to A-4 to allow construction of a new boat storage building.  This will be an initial concept discussion only.   

  4. Action on the proposed 2021 budget was postponed until possible lease terms for the Waters Edge facility can be negotiated with Friends of the Park.  The tax levy was approved by Electors attending the Budget Hearing and set at $3,609,958 or a 2.5% increase over last year.  Electors also voted to approve the change from an Elected Clerk to an Appointed Town Clerk.  This will give the Town Board the opportunity to interview and offer employment to a qualified candidate who hopefully can begin employment before Dixie’s retirement for training purposes.  Dixie is still planning to retire at the end of her current term in April, 2021.

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

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

  7. Thanks to Town of Delavan Police & Fire Depts for extra precautions taken at this time.  And special thanks to all those working in Health Care.
