Town of Lisbon - Lisbon Town Administrator Matt Janecke said residents of Willow Springs Mobile Home Park don't need to worry about Lannon Village Board President David Nagler's statement that it could face discontinued service of its sewage conveyance because it violates state law.

Janecke cited Public Service Commission Chapter 2.11, "governing Wisconsin municipal utilities states that, 'No public utility may abandon facilities or discontinue service without commission authorization made after a public hearing.'"

Janecke is responding to a statement Nagler made about thw Lisbon Sanitary District not signing an agreement on the use of the Lannon Interceptor, which has been a shared system between Lisbon, Lannon and Sussex since the 1990s.

“We’re about ready to give them (Lisbon) an ultimatum," Nagler had said. "Sign this in 90 days, or we’re going to cap that interceptor and then Willow Springs (part of Lisbon Sanitary District 1) is going to be on their own.”

Janecke said it would be illegal to cap the interceptor, and the town and sanitary district hopes to reach an agreement about the interceptor soon.

"Both the town and sanitary district have provided reasonable proposals and suggestions which need to be incorporated into a new contract, and it is our hope and expectation that a new contract will be approved by all municipalities in the very near future. Residents of Willow Springs Mobile Home Park and any town of Lisbon resident in a sewer district area need not worry; sanitary sewer conveyance will continue to be provided by Lisbon Sanitary District #1 as usual, for the foreseeable future," Janecke said.

Nagler refused to comment on the issue.
