City of Delafield - Plans to widen and resurface Milwaukee Street from the downtown business district east to near the Nagawicka Lake shore have been scrapped by the Common Council.
Instead, the council has approved a compromise proposed by Ald. Jim Behrend that calls for resurfacing Milwaukee Street from Onieda Street, near the downtown business district, east to Oak Street, which is about one third of the original approximately one mile long project.
Behrend, who served as mayor in the 1980s, also suggested the original proposed price tag of $900,000 for the project be cut in half to $450,000.
He convinced his fellow council members that widening and repaving Milwaukee Street from Oak Street east to the intersection of Milwaukee and Main Street, near the lake shore, could be postponed. However, sidewalks will be installed along Milwaukee Street east to Fireman's Park.
The original reconstruction proposal had encountered stiff oppostion from residents living along Milwaukee Street who objected to the number of trees that would be destroyed by widening the road.» Read Full Article

A Waukesha small-business owner, Adam Neylon (R), has announced his candidacy for the 98th Assembly District.
The district is expected to be vacated, as Rep. Paul Farrow earlier this month won the Republican primary for the 33rd State Senate District. He will run unopposed in a special election Dec. 4. The 33rd Senate seat is open, since Sen. Rich Zipperer stepped down to take a position in Gov. Scott Walker's administration.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to take my message to the people of the 98th Assembly District and discuss my vision for the future of Waukesha County,” said Neylon. “I believe in a common sense approach to government, and providing a plan to grow the economy, create jobs and improve education.”
The 98th Assembly District consists of Pewaukee, Sussex, the upper half of the City of Waukesha, and a small portion of Lisbon.
Neylon is the owner and president of the Neylon Group, a commercial window cleaning company in the City of Waukesha. He has five years of legislative experience working for Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner and Rep. Bill Kramer. During the 2010 election he served as the Waukesha County field director for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. He has been a member of the Republican Party of Waukesha County for the past six years, and previously served on the Executive Board.
