Dredging propositions fail in Delafield

Voters in the City of Delafield turned down both propositions on the ballot today.

Residents had been asked to spend $3.7 million to dredge portions of Lake Nagawicka and channels on the northeastern and northwestern edge of the lake. That measure was voted down, 674-627.

A second question asked for $1.2 million to create a sediment trap where the Bark River enters the lake. Voters turned that proposition down, 732-564.

The city saw about a 27.5% voter turnout -- almost the same as the last special election held in the city, in 2005, which created the direct legislation ordinance that created the need for this election. Under the ordinance, the city must send capital projects of more than $1 million to a referendum.
