Town of Beloit incorporation plan moves forward

Posted: Updated:

TOWN OF BELOIT (WKOW) -- Officials were expected to submit the town's incorporation petition on Monday after months of of planning to become the village of Riverside.

If the petition is approved by the court, the town would submit an application to the Wisconsin Department of Administration.

Then voters would have to approve incorporation by a referendum.

The plan has not been completely without controversy. West side residents expressed concern early on that they would not be included in the initial application.

The city of Beloit also has concerns over how the move could affect a possible boundary agreement.

Monday on 27 News at 6 p.m., Tony Galli explains how the plan was developed and what's next for residents.
