Hey Ryan,

There's a number of us in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin also pushing for allowing NEVs.

We are fortunate enough to have a public power utility, and the utility director is a pretty open minded guy.

We've been promoting having the local government be the first to use NEVs in our town. That way they will just take care of the ordinances automatically for us!

The utility is planning on getting an NEV for all the running around they do between the utility building and city hall, which are a mile or two apart.

We just had a good article in our local newspaper this morning. It's pretty positive, yet still points out the challenges we have with our own state DOT.
