Tuesday night’s meeting of the Oconomowoc Common Council went by at
an unusual pace, with the only slow down occurring out of a matter
The council was
asked to approve the cross easement agreement between the Oconomowoc
Community Center, 200 W. Wisconsin Ave., and The Parc on Lac La

would be “devastating” to a construction schedule that requires a
good jump on winter weather.
