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.
