Three area municipalities agree on boundary agreement

Three area communities come to an agreement over how their municipalities will grow.

Officials from the city of Onalaska, the Village of Holmen, and the Town of Onalaska agreed on a boundary agreement Monday night. 

As part of the 10 year agreement, the town of Onalaska will not attempt to become a village.

The agreement not only keeps each party out of court, but designates where any annexation will happen.

“We want to make sure that we grow and everybody knows where we’re going to grow. And the city of Onalaska knows where everybody else is going to grow, and everybody knows where everybody is growing,” said Onalaska Mayor Joe Chilsen.

The deal will now go to each respective council’s for approvals.
