Wildlife Area named for former county exec

The county is proposing naming hundreds of picturesque acres along the Sugar River recently acquired from the Bruce Company in honor of former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and her then- chief of staff, Topf Wells, Sup. Dianne Hesselbein announced last week.

Pending final approval by the County Board, the area in the towns of Verona and Montrose would be known as the Falk Wells Sugar River Wildlife Area. Hesselbein, also the state Assembly representative for District 80, authored and introduced the resolution authorizing the naming at the March 6 meeting of the County Board.
