UPDATE: Strauss Brands dumps plan to expand in Franklin; mayor says city had a deal

Previously on This Just In…

The update:

When the Franklin Common Common meets Tuesday night, on the agenda will be discussion about what the city says is the “acknowledgment of development agreement between Strauss  Investments” and some other related items. Mayor Steve Olson claims the city has an agreement with Strauss to expand its operations herein Franklin. The company says they’re going to the city of Milwaukee.

Franklin’s Common Council may and probably will go into closed session to discuss what to do next. I can only surmise that might include taking legal action.

Whatever decision is made it needs to be announced to the public. We need to know more specifics about this “agreement” that apparently went up in smoke if you believe Strauss, and we need to know what our city’s plans are, especially given that another attempt at major economic development (not a nail salon or storage place) seems to have died.
