Village of Hartland — The village hall was standing-room only Monday night, July 21, as concerned residents crowded in to hear plan commission members and a developer discuss plans for a new subdivision.
City of Delafield — Jason Steiner, the city's largest downtown landlord, is hoping that his proposed residential and commercial development, Wells Street Station, between Wells and Main Streets, will be under construction by late 2014 and two of the apartment buildings will be completed by spring 2015.

Town of Merton — Town Clerk Susan Oman is unhappy with Waste Management, one of four waste haulers seeking a contract for garbage and recycling collection from the town, in what a company spokeswoman described as a "misunderstanding" regarding the Texas-based company's business practices.
Food lovers, rejoice.
Town of Merton — The town board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 28, to decide whether town residents will continue to rely on private resources for the collection and hauling of garbage and recyclables or whether — for the first time — the town will provide municipal garbage and recyclable collection services.
