Waukesha - The citizens' group Lisbon-Inc.org has lost another round in its fight to incorporate the Town of Lisbon into a village.
Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Donald J. Hassin Jr. has rejected a request by the citizens group that he review a decision earlier this year by the state Incorporation Review Board. The review board denied Lisbon-Inc.org's petition to have the town incorporated into a village.
Citizen group members argued there were "irregularities" in the proceedings conducted by the review board. Hassin ruled that while state law provided the court had some "administrative" responsibilities in the incorporation process, it did not have the power to review the decision by the review board.
Hassin carried out those "administrative" duties in 2010 when he determined the petition contained information required by state law in order for it be filed with the review board.

Town of Lisbon - An estimated 2,000 people have visited the Town of Lisbon's newly constructed 9-11 Memorial in less than eight hours after it was dedicated during ceremonies at the Town Hall Sunday afternoon, according to Town Chairman Matt Gehrke.
Waukesha County Sheriff Dan Trawicki estimated about 1,250 people attended the dedication ceremonies where U.S. Senator Ron Johnson was the keynote speaker.
"The fact that so many of you want to be here today is a good sign for freedom," Johnson told the crowd.
However, Gehrke said there has been a steady stream of visitors to the memorial site, south of the Town Hall in the Town Hall Park on Woodside Road, since the dedication ceremony ended at about 1:30 p.m.
At about 7:30 p.m., six hours after the ceremonies, there were about 30 visitors solemnly visiting the memorial which includes a section of an I beam from a column in the one of the World Trade Center Twin Towers destroyed during the terrorist attack on New York City ten years ago today.
"It has been like this all day. One group will come and stay for about 10 or 15 minutes and then leave and as they are leaving another group arrives," Gehrke said.
Supervisor Dan Fischer said he believes "at least 2,000 people" have visited the site. He believes Trawicki may have under estimated the attendance at the dedication ceremony. Fischer said the town printed about 600 programs for the event that were quickly used by visitors.
"There were a lot of people who did not get programs," he said.
There will be photos and more details about the ceremony in the Tuesday edition of the Lake Country Reporter and the Wednesday edition of the Sussex Sun.

Butler will compete with Stevens to see who can make the best mac and cheese dish. The community is invited to help judge. Guest judging costs $25 a person, and is limited to the first 100 people who purchase tickets. Guests may also purchase one bowl of mac and cheese for $5. All event proceeds will go directly to the LeRoy Butler Breast Cancer Foundation, and 100 percent of all food sales earned will directly benefit local Waukesha county breast cancer patients that are in need of financial assistance and support.
