WRIGHTSTOWN - If a loved one goes to the Wrightstown village board meeting on Tuesday, October 5, and comes home in the wee hours of the next morning, it's OK to believe the person's excuse. The agenda for the meeting is loaded with big stuff.

Consider this:


The Committee of the Whole meeting that opens the gathering at 6 p.m. includes discussion and possible action on a draft ordinance that would allow people to operate ATV, UTV and golf cart vehicles on village streets, but only with village permits and significant restrictions.



Then there is a discussion of a doubling of the cost for a rail spur into the Wrightstown Industrial Park. The village has to come up with the money, or risk losing two major new industrial tenants - a plastics firm and a truss manufacturing factory.

Other items for the meeting include:

  • New fees for fire inspections and orders to fix fire code violations.

  • Cost sharing for Knox boxes in the downtown River District to allow firefighters to enter burning buildings without breaking down doors or windows.

  • Approval of a developer's agreement between the village and Epsilon Properties, a De Pere company incorporated in August.

  • A closed session to confidentially discuss negotiations with another developer, who is unidentified in the agenda.
