The letter from Brandtjen follows on the heels of a January 30, 2023 Notice of Claim filed against Washington County and on January 31, 2023 a Notice of Intent to Sue filed by attorney Donald Gallo along with 15 citizens in the Town of Erin.

The suit against Washington County included the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

According to Gallo:

“Washington County wants to redefine and fill in the wetlands on the northwest corner of Hwys. K and E in the town of Erin to accommodate placement of recently released violent sex offenders. This redefinition includes a violation of the federal Clean Water Act and violates state and local ordinances. A local group has formed to oppose this action.
