Lawsuit Against Beaver Dam Over Apartment Building Appears To Be Ending

(Beaver Dam) A two-year-old lawsuit against the city of Beaver Dam related to the construction of a northside apartment building appears to be coming to an end. The developers of Oak Point Village filed a lawsuit in June of 2019 against both the city and town of Beaver Dam. The housing complex was built in the city but only had access on a township road, so the township put up barrier at the end of Woodland Drive. The barrier was eventually taken down, but the lawsuit remained. An initial offer by the city to give the developer two parcels of city-owned land was declined. The developer instead proposed that the lawsuit be dismissed with each party absorbing their own fees and costs on the condition that the city agree to pay $25-thousand dollars. That money stems from an initial developer’s agreement that indicated the city pay half the costs to construct a portion of Woodland Drive, which cost the developer $50-thousand dollars. The city council last night authorized the attorney for the city’s insurance carrier to resolve the matter and accept the developer’s latest proposal.
