Concerns raised about damBy Mike McGrathMonday, March 26, 2001

At its regular meeting last Monday evening, the Lanesboro City Council held a discussion with representatives of the Bank of Cashton, Wisconsin about the fate of the building known as the cheese factory.

Mr. Scot Wall led the discussion for the Cashton bank, explaining that his bank holds a financial interest in the building and would like to see the disposition of the building settled.

"Wed like to know what we can do," Wall explained. Adding that his bank would "like to get the ball rolling."

The situation with the building is complex, to say the least. The City bought the building from a private family on a contract that would provide annuity payments to the family over an extended period. The city then turned around and sold the building on a contract to the operators of the cheese factory, as part of a community development special financing project.

In 1999, the cheese making operation shut down and defaulted on the city loan. The bank in Cashton was also caught in the closing of the business, having lent money to the cheese operation for equipment, while taking a second mortgage position to the city as collateral.

In a lengthy explanation, City Attorney Tom Manion told Mr. Wall and the Council the history of the building contracts, noting that the cheese operators should not have borrowed against the building.

Councilman Kevin Drake affirmed this when he added that River Valley Cheese violated its contract with the City when it borrowed money against the building.

In the end, it was explained to Mr. Wall by several members of the City Council that the cheese factory building is one of the sites identified as a possible location for the Citys new Art Center.

Mr. Wall, who said that Cashton, Wisconsin is a small community like Lanesboro, reassured the Council that he had come before them with respect, noting that Lanesboro is looked upon as a model for economic development.

Alley parking

The Council also held a lengthy discussion with police Chief John Carlin about a parking ordinance for the Citys alleys. The Council has been dealing with this issue since the beginning of the year when Carlins office ticketed a citizens car that was parked in an alley.

Councilman Hal Cropp asked Carlin, "What is the intent of having no parking in the alley?" Cropp emphasized that there must be pu .....
