Janesville steps back from annexation involving Milton
Some of the pressure may be off for Milton Town and City officials to make a decision about a proposed 15-hundred acre development at County M and Interstate 90/39. City of Janesville officials say they have no plans to annex the area, after being approached by developer Bill Watson. Janesville City Manager Mark Freitag says the land is beyond the limits of the city's comprehensive plans, and the city would have to get support and buy-in from those communities affected. Town and Milton city officials have been hesitant to get on board with development plans. One reason is Watson will not guarantee the land won't be mined for gravel.
