From: John Olson, Town Administrator

Date:   June 22, 2017



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. 



  • At Tuesday’s Board Meeting, you voted to approve the rezoning and Conditional Use Permit application by Triple J Properties, LLC, 5495 STH 50, to expand their business and build a future storage building.
  • You also voted to approve the Development Agreement for the Shores of Delavan Lake and agreed to give Shodeen the option to finish the pavement in 1 lift over time or 2 lifts immediately as recommended by the Plan Commission. Shodeen will need to complete final engineering on the entire subdivision before beginning construction on Phase 1 of 50-70 lots yet this Fall.
  • We did add part-time help from corrections to start cleaning the beach on Thursday this week. Plans are to continue the additional help on Monday – Thursday mornings from 8:00 – 11:00am. Thanks to Tom for helping with the transportation.
  • Road construction work is planned to begin on Monday. The planned work is described as follows: Amos Rd. (approx. 500’) near Elkhorn City Limits will be patched and overlayed, Bailey Rd. (CTH F South to Theatre Rd.) will be pulverized and overlayed with culvert replacement, Dam Rd. (City of Delavan Limits to Town of Sugar Creek – 2 miles) will be pulverized and overlayed with culvert replacement, and Industrial Ct. (Mound Rd. to North End) will be milled and graded with pavement replacement. Mound Road will also be improved cooperatively with the City of Delavan with planning details and bid results yet to come. Right now, Dam Road is expected to be closed beginning shortly after the 4th of July through the end of September and Bailey Rd. will be closed sometime near mid-August through mid-September.    
  • Property owners along TK Lane (private road) are strongly considering options & costs to make the conversion from private to a public road. We will need to determine a cost estimate of a minimum public road standard and legal costs for an eminent domain action as 6/8 property owners are supportive of the transfer. The private road owners (6/8) would be responsible for all costs. This will be discussed again at the July 5 Public Works Committee.
  • All Assessed Values for the Town are available online at  
  • The Highway Shop is a “free drop-off site” for Waste Oil that is used for heating purposes. We are currently in low supply.
  • Enjoy your weekend! Out of the office tomorrow. Independence Day Celebration in Community Park on Saturday, July 1.
