The Town of Kildare is located in the southeastern section of Juneau County, between the Wisconsin Dells and Mauston, with easy access to the I-90/94 Interstate. The town is adjacent to the Village of Lyndon Station, which offers restaurants, taverns, shopping and churches. A short ten-minute drive south takes you to the Wisconsin Dells with its abundance of waterparks and visitor attractions.

Kildare was settled around 1850 by pioneer families from County Kildare, Ireland. A rural community, covering 28.2 square miles with pine forests, farmlands, and streams, Kildare has several campgrounds and public areas along or near the Wisconsin River, where outdoor activities can be enjoyed. The Lemonweir River borders Kildare and flows into the Wisconsin River. Camping, canoeing, boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, hunting and snowmobiling are just some of the recreational opportunities available within the town.

YOUR JUNEAU COUNTY BOARD
cowers before Ho-Chunk intimidation.
 

The County Board Executive Committee's determination to support Ho-Chunk's "BEHIND THE SCENES" efforts to remove Property in Kildare from the town tax rolls and ordinanances succeeded on August 18th.  This topic was reintroduced on the August Agenda and Kildare board members and property owners attended the meeting. Nothing in the County's original resolution opposing this takeover has changed EXCEPT Ho-Chunk Nation "promising" the Executive Committee cash donations - contingent on the County dropping their 2011 opposition.
In private meetings with the Nation's Council, Al Peterson and his committee were told that if they didn't back away from their opposition, that the Juneau County representatives would find it "difficult" to request any financial aid for the County.  It came to light that the aid provided has always come from the Bureau of Indian Affairs - funded by the Federal Government.  So all of the so-called Ho-Chunk donations were not coming out of the tribes checkbook at all, but from Federal tax money funneled into the BIA account.
Your Town Board is very unhappy and disturbed by the 17-4 decision to allow the Nation to remove property from the County's tax roll and Jurisdiction.  It does not bode well for other towns now that the tribe knows the county board has a price tag!
