The November 21st Richfield Village Board agenda had two closed session items the first one being:
CLOSED SESSION a. Discussion /Action to enter into Closed Session under Wis. Stats. 19.85(1)(g) conferring with legal counsel for the governing body who is rendering oral or written advice concerning strategy to be adopted by the governing body with respect to litigation in which it is or is likely to become involved. - Grace Investors II LLC & Tenant for property.
That property is located on the NE corner of Hwys Q and 164 just north of the old church which was planned to be a new Lake 5 Dairy Store, but that never occured and is now owned by Grace Properties II, LLC, of Pewaukee.
After closed session, the village board came back into session and instructed staff to seek an order in Washington County Circuit Court to have the property cleaned up to meet village ordinances. The property is an eyesore with debris piled directly near the Welcome to Richfield sign which drivers see as they enter Richfield.
So sad that corner farm land could have been a modest retail center with a residential section a few years ago but residents near-by and the Hwy J Group who wanted No Four Lanes made it an issue and stopped the development. Now they and all of Richfield residents have a major eye sore.
Seems the nearby residents now do not like the smell coming from smoke as the debris is being burned. Some people are never happy.
As seen in Nov 21 Daily News
Highway 164 in Richfield is now open
Traffic flow, safety work completed
By Ian Bergersen
Special to Conley Media
RICHFIELD — Highway 164 is now officially open and features new safety improvements and traffic flow upgrades.
“WisDOT would like to thank the Richfield area community for their patience and cooperation,” Wisconsin Department of Transportation Project Manager Kurt Flierl said in the final report.
The approximately 7.5 miles of roadway from County Highway E to County Line Road was upgraded with new designated turn and bypass lanes, and a new roundabout was built at the intersection of Highway 164 and Holy Hill Road to help improve traffic flow. Several hills along the highway were flattened to enhance visibility for motorists.
Over 625,000 cubic yards of earth was excavated and 160,000 tons of construction aggregate was crushed during the project. More than 65,000 tons of asphalt pavement was placed over the highway.
The project was completed on time by WisDOT despite delays due to weather. During construction, WisDOT coordinated with the State Highway Patrol and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department and added extra police patrols to monitor the increased traffic through the village.
“The Wisconsin DOT (Wis-DOT) did an outstanding job communicating with all entities and organizations,” Richfield Village Administrator Jim Healy said in an email. “Weekly meetings were one of the strongest communication tools this WisDOT team utilized to let stakeholders know what progress has been made, what items may need troubleshooting and three-week look ahead plans.”
Work yet to be completed includes permanent electrical connections for the lights at intersections and the roundabout, as well as restoration to ditches and side slopes. Work is scheduled for spring for reseeding and soil restoration.
Paul Bugenhagen Jr. is a candidate for Judge in District II Court of Appeals which includes residents of Richfield. Election date is April 7, 2020.
He has a strong conservative judicial philisophy and will uphold our laws and Consiitution as they are wrtten. He currently serves on the Waukesha County Circuit Court, is a family man and hard worker who looks at this election as an opportunity to be a positive influence and keep Wisconsin a great place to live, work and raise a family.
His opponent is Lisa Neubauer. Paul has the experience to replace liberal Judge Lisa Neubaurer, the same person who ran against Brian Hagedorn for Supreme Court Justice recently. She aggressively attacked Judge Brian Hagedorm for this faith and his desire to uphold the constitution.
Consider voting for Judge Paul Bugenhagen Jr for Court of Appeals.

As many of you know there is highway and railroad construction needed to complete highway work for the new Kwik Trip on Hwy 167 just off Interstate 41. This added work was required by WIS DOT.
The road was to be closed for only 1 week beginning Octover 21 but due to timing of various construction units the closure will begin October 21 and end mid-November. While Village staff tried to make other arrangements, Village staff had no authority to effect a change in timing. So please refrain from complaining to Village staff.
Attached is a Press Release from Village Administrator Jim Healy regarding this unfortunate road closure. Than you for your understanding and patience.

2019 Season Opening: Friday, August 30th!!
Mother Nature is a Great and Powerful force that we cannot sway. She has a strategy and we must be patient while she executes her plan...especially at harvest time. With all the best intentions, the plan was to open the orchard store last week but unfortunately the mighty mother nature was not having any of it. Remember this past June in Wisconsin?? Those cold days are long past. Now, you get the ripest, freshest apples!
It's been 10 and 1/2 months since 2018 harvest...but more importantly, it's been nearly 12 months since you might have tasted a ripe Zestar! With qualities like that delicious brown sugar after-taste; that light and airy crunch you hear with every bite. That cannot be rushed.
2019 Rims Edge will open for business on Friday, August 30th with 5 tasty varieties available. In addition to the Zestar!, conside also the Sansa, Dandee Red, Paula Red, and Ginger Gold.

Area developer Peter Briggs and owner of My Other Garage which rents self-storage units to the public hopes to close on the purchase of the old school mid September.
The school could become home to a variey of spaces for rent, potential day care, doggy wash area, storage rental areas, and classrooms could become home for some local businesses.
Nice to see the historic school continue to be used in a new way.
Welcome Peter Briggs.
