The icy tension between the Village of Sister Bay and the Town of Liberty Grove over its wastewater treatment plant has been thawing in recent weeks. The two sides have been fighting over ownership and management of the shared wastewater treatment plant for years, leading to the village to take the town to court over the issue earlier this year. Village Administrator Zeke Jackson says while not everything is settled yet, he is encouraged that progress is finally be made.
After agreeing to Sister Bay being the owner of the physical plant, the two sides are now discussing future investment into its operations. The agreement between the two municipalities dates back to 1988.
