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. Pulverizing work continued on North Shore Dr. and moved to Valencia Dr. later in the week.  Ditching and culvert work also began on North Shore Dr. mid-week.  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.  New informational website: 

  2. At Tuesday’s Board Meeting, you will be considering approval of a letter to send to Walworth County Zoning expressing concerns on the Manure applied to parcels at the corner of CTH F South and STH 50.

  3. You will also be considering the bid for the new Community Park Pier.  The existing pier will be replaced and lengthened and re-aligned to handle docking by the Lake Lawn Queen.  Austin Pier was the sole bidder for $15,842.

  4. You will also be considering the purchase and replacement of the following Public Works equipment:  Roller - $13,800, Chipper - $51,748, and F-550 Truck - $78,680.

  5. You will also be voting on the Guaranteed Maximum Price Agreement proposed by Scherrer for the new Waters Edge building.  At COW, you discussed changes (reductions) to the 100K contingency budget to allow additions for windows and the light bar truss structure.  If agreed, these additions would lower the contingency budget to 84K.  Additional windows on the “lake side” and permanent roof structures rather than cloth over the loft deck, picnic and main entrance area were also discussed. 

  6. You will also be voting on the proposed kids Halloween Party this year planned for Sunday, 10/25.  The Park Committee has recommended not having the party this year due to COVID concerns.
