Windsor’s challenge of Wisconsin Department of Administration population estimates for the village appears to have been a success.
On Thursday, village officials learned that the DOA issued a final Windsor population estimate for January 2019 of 8,097 residents. Preliminary estimates sent out earlier put Windsor’s population at 7,925, only 130 higher than 2018 levels.
The adjusted estimate recognized a population hike of more than 300 residents.
At the Windsor Village Board meeting earlier in September, village officials gave notice that Windsor intended to challenge the preliminary estimates and were granted permission by the board to do so.
