Update: There is a Regular meeting for the Racine County Drainage Board Committee on this Thursday, Dec 12th at 1PM at the Ives Grove annexation building if anyone would like to attend.
Update: The Hearing for the Racine County Drainage Board Annexation Was last week. The Engineer fully admitted that they were not benefiting us in the subdivision. The hearing was to vote on the maps and specifications that were suppose to be available to us on their website, at the town hall and the county. None of that was done and we had 5 mins to look the maps over. The maps are now at the County and the Town hall if anyone would like to look them over. The DATCP person was at this meeting and saw what is happening. We are moving forward with our plans. We have also been asked to add Eagle Lake Tributary to our website (under the Association Documents). I wish I had a set of plans to put up on this site, but we were not given them.
UPDATE: There will be another Hearing for the Racine County Drainage Board on our Annexation on Oct 23rd. Details to be given by them mailing out letters to us again. PLEASE TELL YOUR NEIGHBORS!!! 7PM at the Ives Grove, Annexation Building on Hwy 20.
UPDATE: We talked to the Town of Dover last meeting for the Town and they have decided to Join us in the lawsuit, Our Association attorney and the Town of Dover Attorney has now filed the suit for Farm #4 Eagle Creek Drainage District.
UPDATE: At our last Special Members meeting June 29th, 2019, members voted to move forward with our law suite and our attorney will be filing documents this week. We had a short window of time to get this in. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or a board member. We hope that the drainage district shares their proof (engineering reports, that we have been asking for from day 1) of us benefiting our community, finally. We feel that it is not a benefit and that it is not helping us what so ever. Please share with your neighbors and let them know we are on the agenda for the Town of Dover on their next meeting July 8th. Hope you can make it and show support for being against the County Drainage District. The Town Board needs to know that its Town Members are not happy with the Drainage District and we would like to have the Town take this over and away from the current County Drainage District. We will also be filling a Petition to have the County Drainage District elected officials no longer appointed. (Taxation without representation) especially with DATCP not being able to approve or disapprove of the annexation due to the State Statue they filled under. Contact your local elected officials, Robin Voss, Van Wanggaard offices.
