At the September 4, 2014 Town of Vernon Board Meeting (audio) Chairman Thomas Bird gave a history of the Annexation Ordinances:

  • Village of Big Bend Ordnance 2014-15 titled "An Ordinance Annexing Territory to the Village of Big Bend" and
  • Village of Big Bend Ordnance 2014-16 titled "An Ordinance Annexing Territory to the Village of Big Bend" 

The two Ordinances annexing property in the Town of Vernon were initiated by the Village of Big Bend.  It was the Waukesha County Register of Deeds that notified the Town of Vernon of the Village of Big Bend’s Annexation Ordinances, Village of Big Bend Ordinance 2014-15 titled "An Ordinance Annexing Territory to the Village of Big Bend" and Village of Big Bend Ordinance 2014-16 titled "An Ordinance Annexing Territory to the Village of Big Bend" 

On September 4, 2014, Chairman Thomas Bird read the Stipulation signed by the Honorable Judge Linda Van De Water declaring the Village of Big Bend Ordinance 2014-15 titled "An Ordinance Annexing Territory to the Village of Big Bend" null and void.  Please see the information in Annexations #1 below.  

(Town of Vernon will obtain a copy from the Village of Big Bend of the ordiances (#2014-17 & #2014-18) that rescinded the ordiances to annex (#2014-15 & #2014-16) so our Town Attorneys can notify the Secretary of State, Department of Transportation, Department of Revenue and Department of Public Instruction as required by the State of Wisconsin.)
