For Immediate Release

RE: Muskego Lake Property Acquisition
Contact: Tina Weiss, Executive Director

Members of the Muskego City Council faced a very challenging decision last night concerning potential lake property acquisition on Little Muskego Lake. While recognizing that opinions differ on the issue, the Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce believes the City Council made a hard but right decision on this matter by approving purchase of the property.

The mission of the Muskego Area Chamber is to create prosperity and a vibrant community in order to make our lake community a destination for work, home and play. The City Council's vote on this matter is directly aligned to advancing this mission and vision for Muskego's future. We are thankful for the vote and for the civic-minded leadership it demonstrates.

In stating our organization's support for this Council decision, the Chamber also notes that this effort is in line with the Community's Comprehensive 2020 plan and is an option available to the Council due to a record of sound fiscal management over many years. We agree with the Council that this purchase represents an investment into Muskego's future while also rightfully seizing on a likely one-time opportunity to provide public access to the lake for all citizens in a key area adjacent to the city center.

In all walks of public life, there are key decisions that serve as defining moments for the officals involved and the communities they serve. The Muskego Area Chamber views last night's decision as a defining moment by our elected leaders, one that we believe will positively impact and shape Muskego's future and appeal for businesses, families, and visitors alike.
