Muskego Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti and aldermen Neome Schaumberg and Keith Werner are facing recall threats due to their rejection of a referendum on a proposed $3.55 million purchase of lakefront property for a park.
City officials ruled that direct legislation cannot be used to repeal an existing ordinance. The plan is currently on hold.
Note that the referendum petition had 3,409 signatures. Petitioners will need 3,004 signatures to recall the mayor, 433 for Schaumberg and 346 for Werner. They have 60 days.
