Wauwatosa Mayor Ehley endorses Chris Abele
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele announced Tuesday that he received endorsements from more than a dozen local executive leaders representing municipalities across Milwaukee County — including Mayor Kathy Ehley of Wauwatosa.
Abele looks to keep his seat as he runs against state Sen. Chris Larson during the April 5 spring election.
Ehley said Abele has worked to find more areas of collaboration between elected leaders, according to a news release.
Other endorsing mayors and village presidents included those from South Milwaukee, River Hills, Bayside, West Milwaukee, Cudahy, Shorewood, Village of Brown Deer, Franklin, Greenfield, Hales Corners, Whitefish Bay, Oak Creek and St. Francis.
Water main work begins
in the Village March 28
As a precursor to the upcoming streetscaping project in the Village, contractors were to begin relining the 1897 water main in State Street this week, according to the city's website.
Much of the work will take place in the Village plaza area between Cafe Bavaria and Cafe Hollander.
There will be two excavations in State Street, one at 72nd Street near Leff's Lucky Town and the other at Underwood, near Noodles & Company. There will be lane diversions, but through traffic will be maintained.
Work to replace We Energies gas main facilities in conjunction with the water main project will begin soon at the Church Street and Menomonee River Parkway intersection and will work to the east into the Village.
The work is weather dependent and is expected to last six to eight weeks.
