Good things come to those who wait, and the members of the Woman's Club of Muskego have apparently been waiting - and saving - a long time for the new Janesville Road.
The group presented a check for $12,000 to the city during Tuesday night's Common Council meeting to place planters, benches and trash cans at the intersections in the heart of the downtown area, at Lannon and Parkland Drive.
A total of four benches, four flowered planters and accompanying garbage cans will match the streetscaping along Janesville Road, and will take $8,000 off of the city's punch list for the project.
Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti, who was a former president of the organization, congratulated them for their patience.
"I can tell you, these women have been waiting a long time for Janesville Road to come in to make this donation, and they are also obviously very good savers," she said.
The plantings and accessory pieces will be put in at Parkland Drive in 2013, and at Lannon Drive in 2014.
