VOLUME SEVENTY-FIVE Memr of NATIOWAL EDITORIAL ASSN. Near 400 Acres Will Annex to South Of BrihI R. R. Toepel, left, presented to Mayor Clarence Wolf a new homemade gavel and block on the occasion of the starting of his eighth term as Mayor of the City of Brillion. The gift male by Toepel, is in sincere appreciation for his dedication to the best interests of all Bril- lion citizens. K BRILLION-With the reading of Ordinance 224 at Monday's regular session of the Council, dis- closed publicly of the annexation of just under 400 acres of land to Brillion on the south side. The area bounded by straight south from the north-south road of Lover's Lane to the south to the north edge of the Conservation Club running behind the Deer Run Golf Course to include the area on both sides of Highway 114 leaving the city limits. There will be 55 voters in the annexed area of which 41 signed the petition to be annexed to the city. The affected area will have about 400 acres of mostly farm lands, but will also include 28 residences and the Deer Run Golf Course. The assessed valuation of the annexation has been conservative- ly placed at $310,000 with $100,- 000 of the valuation belonging to the golf course. Problems pushing this annexa- tion were the conditions arising with septic tanks at residences on the south side and the poor re- lationships between town and the golf course and on the assessment of properties. Annexation of Over 100 Acres to City Accepted By Council BRILLION -- The Brillion Council met in special session to consider the annexation of a possible 123.12 acres of land primarily lying in the path of Brillion industrial and com- merical growth. The BIW had proposed the an- nexation of 15.97 acres on the east side, north of Horn Park which would be involved in the construction of the new 4 mil- lion dollar foundry expansion. Approached, but not yet con- firmed was 33.15 acres of land east of the present Larsen Company belonging to them and used for their canning operations. The largest block would be the 74 acres which basically is two 40 acre blocks lying directly west of the Brillion Co- op Vocational School. The first forty acre piece is now the property of Ariens formerly belonging to Ed Barth, Next is a 10 acre strip on which Bob Endries is presently con- structing his new building and on the n orth sideof the road is a 16 acre parcel which he has an option that he expects to exercise. The remaining portion of the 74 acres is 8 acres belonging to Ariens Company that lies on the south side of the curve of Highway 10 going west. The Ariens Company has pur- chased the 40 acres of Barth land in order to correct a sur- face water problem. They in- tend to redesign the present water drainage system traveling west of their plant and will run the water to the rear of the purchased 40 acres and around the back of the Endries property and through the land to the west and toward the Brillion swamp. The only cost for the City in the changing of the water drain- age system will be the con- struction of waterway in the Schneider farm south of this annexation. Its estimated cost of $1,100 was verbally ap- proved by the Council. The Council accepted the an- nexation proposal and had a first reading by title only of an ordinance accepting the lands for annexation. The Council approved the pay- ment for the new squad car to Central garage for the delivery of the new Dodge car. z~ CITY OF uCree L. Pagel. Ted.
