Placeholder Image
MONROE - A land purchase agreement with a closing date set for October was met with an obstacle on Tuesday when Monroe Common Council voted to deny annexation of the 98-acre parcel between Wisconsin 81 and County N. The addition of the area, commonly referred to as the Dolan Property, was struck down in a 4-2 vote during council proceedings which aldermen Chris Beer, Jeff Newcomer and Charles Koch did not attend. Per City Attorney Dan Bartholf, a two-thirds vote of the entire council was needed to pass the ordinance. There are nine aldermen.
