Summit referendum under way
Town of Summit residents will vote today on whether or not they think the town should be promoted to village status. The years-long pursuit by past and present town officials comes down to the electors today who are asked to cast their vote at Town Hall, 2911 N. Dousman Road, until 8 p.m.
Town Clerk Debra Schueler reported at the time of this posting that about 60 residents had come in to cast their vote. There are approximately 3,800 residents in the town. The municipality only needs one more vote than half for the referendum to pass and Summit to become a village.
Village status ensures Summit's borders are protected from annexation by neighboring municipalities. According to Town Administrator/Planner Henry Elling, a village also has more weight in consideration for government funding and grant applications.
