The Board Members will be attending a Wisconsin Towns Association Meeting in Whitewater on February 5, 2022. No Town Business will be discussed.
Tax bills have been sent out today, and you should receive them shortly. If you would like your tax bill earlier, you can print it from the Walworth County Website – https://ascent.co.walworth.wi.us/LandRecords/PropertyListing/RealEstateTaxParcel#/Search
Alternatively, I can also provide you with a copy of your bill. I will be in the office on Tuesday, December 21, from 9 to noon, and on Thursday, December 23, from 1 to 4:30 p.m.
If you pay your taxes in installments, the second installment is due July 31, 2021 and MUST BE PAID TO:
Walworth County Treasurer
P.O. BOX 1001
Elkhorn, WI 53121
It has come to my attention that Walworth County no longer sends reminder notices for second half payments. Second half payments are not accepted by the Town after January 31, 2021. No tax payments can be accepted by the town after February 4, 2021.
CHAIRMAN’S UPDATE #18
I haven’t done an update in a while because, even though issues like a new Town Hall or garage extension are still under consideration, nothing has, as yet, been decided by the Board or the committee. There are a few things to report, however.
The lawsuit filed against Spring Prairie for $23.9 million by WSPR Enterprises went to Federal court a couple of months ago and is now in the hands of a Federal judge to decide the outcome. Motions have been filed by both sides in the issue and Town attorneys are hopeful for a decision by the judge sometime this summer or, perhaps, early fall. I’ll keep you apprised of any developments.
Town residents are planning a picnic for anyone interested. It will be an opportunity for the people of Spring Prairie to get together and meet their neighbors and touch base with old friends following this year and a half of shutdowns and isolation. It will also be an opportunity to meet the Town officials including newly-elected officials Supervisor Lis Friemoth and Clerk/Treasurer Calli Milligan. The picnic is scheduled for Sunday, July 25 from noon to 2pm at the Town Hall grounds. Bring your own food, if you want, or some to share, or purchase brats and hot dogs from the local 4H Club. Sorry, no alcoholic beverages are allowed on the grounds and there is no parking on Hwy. 120. Please park in the Town Hall or garage parking lots or along Potter Road. If you would like to volunteer to help or have any thoughts or suggestions or questions, contact Tom Grossman at [email protected].
Finally, Southeast Wisconsin is in the midst of a severe drought, so I urge everyone to be careful with fireworks, bonfires or burning trash. As dry as lawns and fields are right now, a careless fire could be disastrous. Otherwise, enjoy the summer.
Weight limits on all Town roads are lifted as of 11 a.m. today, Monday, March 22, 2021! It’s back to business!
