Town of Beloit plans to file incorporation petition on Monday

Now that the town board has officially approved the name Riverside, officials in the Town of Beloit are ready to file their petition to incorporate into a village with Rock County Circuit Court on Monday.

Town Administrator Ian Haas says he’s also hopeful talks will continue with the City of Beloit.

Once the court certifies the petition, a formal application would be filed with the State Department of Administration who would have the final decision on whether the item can to to the voters in a referendum.

If the corporation becomes a reality the area east of Afton Road would become a village and the land west of Afton Road would remain a remnant town.
