THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Town Of Wausaukee Deeds Evergreen Park To Village
Issue Date: August 22, 2019
The Wausaukee Town Board at its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 13 unanimously approved a motion to deed ownership of its portion of Evergreen Park to the Village of Wausaukee. The possibility of bringing the entire park under village jurisdiction of the village has been proposed for years.
At its meeting on Monday, Aug. 19 Wausaukee Village board happily agreed to accept the quick claim deed, which brings the entire park and campground under village ownership. The village recently completed some major improvements at Evergreen Park and village board members were happy that the town agreed to the quick claim deed transaction.
Evergreen Park is located within the village at its northern boundary, where it joins the town. Prior to the quick claim deed, some parts of the park were owned by the village, some by the town and some jointly. The village has been maintaining the park with the help of a $1,000 a year allocation from the town.
The village and the town continue to share ownership of Steve Stumbris Memorial Park and athletic fields.
Possible approval of the quick claim deed for the portions of Evergreen Park had been placed on the town agenda as a result of a letter Town Chair Jeff Engelmann had received from Village President Hilbert Radtke. The letter stated that the Village would accept the fact that the Town is considering deeding the park real property. Supervisor Bob Jicha moved to Quick Claim Deed the two parcels owned by the town and Supervisor Kurt Stumbris seconded. Engelmann was also in favor. Supervisors David Tomasino and Dennis Taylor were absent.
Others present for the meeting were Wausaukee Town Treasurer Sally Hultquist and Clerk Cheryl Stumbris, plus town residents Bob Wesolowski and Sirina Tyler, and Village of Wausaukee officials including Radtke, Trustees Joanne Polomis and Pat Tracy, and Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen
