Brownsville Could Become Part Of Fox Lake Municipal Court
The Fox Lake Common Council is considering expanding their municipal court to include Brownsville. The move would be the first expansion for the city which would then handle non-criminal offenses like municipal ordinance and traffic violations for Brownsville. Mayor Tom Bednarek says both Brownsville and Mayville approached them a year ago to join the municipal courts but it did not lead anywhere. Then, two months ago Brownsville re-approached the city and asked if they were still interested. Bednarek says if Brownsville becomes part of the court it will generate additional revenue for the City. The Fox Lake Council will meet on Wednesday.
