More Aldermen Set Listening Sessions

With big votes coming this spring, Oak Creek council members seek to answer questions and gather public input.

With no shortage of hot topics in Oak Creek, city aldermen are setting up listening sessions to answer questions and gather input from the public.

Alderman Tom Michalski will host such a meeting from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 9, while Alderman Dan Jakubczyk has scheduled a listening session for 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 16.

Both meetings will be held in the council chambers of Oak Creek City Hall, 8640 S. Howell Ave. All residents are invited to attend.

Council members are facing big votes later this spring on plans for the Drexel Town Square development project. A proposed Meijer store is one aspect of the development that has attracted strong opposition.

Jakubczyk is also bidding for re-election against challenger Steven Kurkowski. Both candidates advanced out of the primary and will be on the ballot in the April 2 election.

Alderman Dan Bukiewicz has also announced a listening session for 6 to 8 p.m. March 4 at the Oak Creek Public Library, 8620 S. Howell Ave.

And just where are Reitz, 3rd district, Toman, 4th district and Gehl, 5th district? I'm especially concerned that Toman doesn't respond to residents and isn't holding a session considering the lakefront is in his district and the amount of involvement he has had in the dirty WisPark/OC deals from day one. Gehl's district includes the Oakwood warehouse district plans on Oakwood and Howell. Why isn't he responding to the public? Michalski's district doesn't contain any of the proposed developmental sites but he probably knows more of the answers if one asks concise questions. 1st district alderman doesn't have a clue. Remember, his district contains the proposed but failed new US Postal hub site on College and Pennsylvania. Remember also that the vote went against the voice of the people. More Bolendar failure. How much money is passing under the table to get the aldermen to vote and the mayor to agree and promote favor of WisPark and against the best interest of the residents and city?
