The owners of the two properties Muskego is considering buying to establish a park on Little Muskego Lake have decided not to sell, probably killing the controversial park proposal.
A letter City Hall received today from attorney Gerald Boisits representing Michael Dilworth and Ener-Con Companies Inc., states: "My clients have indicated that they are no longer interested in promoting and/or offering any land for what is known as the Little Muskego Lake Development, effective immediately."
The city also received a similar letter from the attorney representing Nan Gardetto, owner of the other property.
In response, Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti issued a statement as well.
"On behalf of the city of Muskego, I wish to thank both property owners for offering their property to the community in support of the city's Comprehensive Plan and Parks and Open Space Plan," she stated. "The city further appreciates the professional and genuine manner in which both property owners worked with the city and council throughout the process."
