A note from the President

  
  
                     Happy Winter Village Residents

South Willow Road is now completed. This project was completed on time, and turned out great. Thanks to AW Oakes and Sons Inc. for staying on task from day one, and adding a well needed extension of South Willow Road to now connect Hwy 11 to Braun Road. This road is essential to help relieve traffic at the intersection of Hwy 11 and 90th Street to both the south and north side of the Village, allows a controlled intersection for school traffic for Schulte, a safe in and out for Farm and Fleet and American Metals, and for future development. A special thanks to Jonathon Delagrave and the Racine County Board, for the partnership it took to be able to construct this road. The County came forward with 1.5 million to fund most of the intersection cost.
As a reminder, alternate side parking is in effect that started December1st and continues thru March 31st. Friday and Saturday nights, and Holidays are exempt under the ordinance for alternate side parking. Depending on severe weather forecasts, the Village may issue a Snow Emergency to be effective with snowplowing and salting operations. Tune in to the local TV channels and social media when big, difficult storms are predicted. The Village shares such information on our website, and on Facebook thru Sturtevant Neighborhood Watch, Sturtevant Community Events, Sturtevant K9, and Sturtevant PD pages.
Last week we had a very successful turnout for the Holiday Train that stopped at the Sturtevant Train Depot. Thanks to Canadian Pacific for making the stop in our Village, and also to the Racine County Food Bank for their devotion to help feed the ones that need it the most, especially around the Holidays. We also had our first Annual Tree Lighting Event at the Village Hall. It was an excellent event with an awesome turnout. You could feel the Christmas spirit strongly through the event. A special thanks to Trustee Rosenbaum for the vision, and to Trustee Harbach for spearheading the event, and to all people that volunteered their time for this event, and our business and personal donations that were needed to make this vision, a reality. From my family to yours, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years!
