Noah Fiedler, one of four Muskego aldermen who support creating a park on Little Muskego Lake, has resigned effective March 31.
Fiedler, who has served since 2007 and whose District 7 aldermanic term expires in April 2013, cited no reason for his resignation.
The council, meeting as a committee of the whole, will discuss on Tuesday how to fill the resulting vacancy. Normally, the council appoints replacements after interviews of citizens who apply for the post.
The timing of his resignation at first glance might seem to shift support on the lake park issue, for which a land acquistion proposal passed on a narrow 4-3 vote in late January. However, Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti, who has openly expressed support for the project, would cast a tie-breaking vote on any issue that is deadlocked.
The Common Council is slated to vote Tuesday on a direct legislation petition aimed at stopping the purchase for the proposed park until a binding referendum can be held. However, the council could approve an advisory referendum on Tuesday that has the potential of swinging a vote against going ahead with buying the properties.
