Between the Lines: Cottage Grove Library Relegated to "In Your Dreams" Status

Link to October 10 Wisconsin State Journal article, "Mikalsen promises to continue focus on spending as Cottage Grove president".

Excerpt: Mike Mikalsen, appointed Cottage Grove's new village president Monday by the Village Board, has promised to continue his predecessor's focus on reducing village spending and bringing more businesses to the community.

"Frankly the village has to bring the spending into line with the village's ability to pay," he said Friday, his fifth day in office.

The board appointed Mikalsen, known in the Capitol as a prolific and high-profile aide to state Rep. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, after former village President Scott Norton resigned abruptly on Sept. 18, only five months into a two-year term.
