Budget, Dunkin' Donuts again on Town of Waukesha's agenda

Both are repeats from earlier meetings

March 12, 2013

Will there be fireworks when the Town of Waukesha Board reconvenes Thursday night?

If it is anything like the last Town Board meeting than residents are in for a show once again. The 3.5-hour meeting included everything from a lengthy outburst from a resident directed at Town Chairwoman Angie Van Scyoc and serious allegations made by a board member accusing the chairwoman of saying she doesn't have to follow town ordinances.

All allegations were denied by the chairwoman.

There was also a brief, but tense exchange between Van Scyoc and John Marek, her challenger in the upcoming town chairman election April 2.

At that Feb. 28 meeting, the town discussed its financial state and audit.

Its 2012 budget showed that the net total under spent was around $250,000. It also showed that the town did not budget enough for legal fees by $104,000. This was a point of contention as well at the meeting.

Supervisors Brian Fischer and Everett German voted against budget amendments, which Van Scyoc said didn't allow the town to close its books for 2012.

The Town Board, though, will again discuss this at tonight's meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall, W250 S3567 Center Road. They will need four of the five supervisors to vote in favor for it to pass.

Also on the agenda for the meeting, which is a joint gathering with the Plan Commission, is the conditional use site plan, architecture, landscaping and overall plan of operation on the proposed Dunkin' Donuts, S30 W24836 Sunset Drive.

Like the budget amendments, this is another item that was delayed from a previous meeting.

The Plan Commission at the Feb. 14 meeting said because there were many safety and traffic concerns from neighbors and nearby business owners with the layout of the 5,040 square-foot multi-tenant retail building, that includes a drive-through, it wanted the developers to make updates to the plans before it returned to the Plan Commission and Town Board.
