Holidays delay trash collection

Brownfield grant input sought

The Sheboygan County Planning and Conservation Department is seeking recommendations for potential sites to be targeted by a $400,000 Brownfields Assessment grant received earlier this year.

Funds will be used to study brownfield sites in Sheboygan County’s communities, which are locations that may be contaminated by hazardous materials or petroleum. Examples of these sites include former gas stations or old industrial sites, although eligible areas can have a variety of current or past uses. These sites may be of concern for adverse human health impacts, but they may also have potential unseen environmental impacts. Sites such as these are a hindrance to potential redevelopment because of the costs and time associated with cleanup.

The department is asking for input from the public. There is an online form available for sites individuals consider polluted or those posing issues for redevelopment in the community. Forms can be found on the Planning & Conservation Department’s page of the site, and will be available until Jan. 9.

Please contact the department with any questions at 920-459-3060 or

Election set to fill 20th Senate seat

Another race has been added to the April 7, 2015, general election ballot.

Voters in the 20th State Senate District – which includes the towns of Greenbush, Lyndon, Mitchell, Russell and Scott in Sheboygan County – will elect a new state senator in the spring general election.

Gov. Scott Walker set that as the date to elect a successor to State Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-Campbellsport.

Grothman vacated the seat to run for Congress from the 6th District, an election he won last month.

If a primary is required, that will be held Tuesday, Feb. 17.

Potential candidates for the 20th District State Senate seat could begin circulating nomination papers Tuesday. Those papers must be submitted by Jan. 6.

Four candidates have already announced their intention to run for the Republican nomination for the seat. They include state Rep. Duey Stroebel of Cedarburg, Ozaukee County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt of Port Washington, Calumet County Supervisor Ralph Prescott of Chilton and Tiffany Koehler of Slinger.

Stroebel was one of three candidates Grothman defeated in the Republican primary for Congress last August, while Prescott ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for the 59th Assembly District earlier this year.

No Democrats have announced to run for the seat yet, while Phil Atwood of West Bend has declared as a Libertarian candidate.
