Congratulations on Your Retirement!

After 45 wonderful years serving Muskego, first as Sindic Oldsmobile and then Sindic Motorcars, we have made the decision to retire on June 1, 2021. We have met many wonderful people and are grateful for all the community support we have received over the years. But as the old saying goes, “all good things must come to an end.” It’s time for us to float on our boat and spend time with our grandson, Charlie, the cutest baby in the world. 

We are very excited to announce that Griffin Muskego Used Cars, Inc will be coming in to fill the preowned vehicle needs of our neighbors. The Griffin Auto Group brings decades of experience, integrity and community support.
Richlonn’s Tire & Service Center will continue to serve your tire & maintenance needs as usual.Again, we want to thank everyone for their support over the past 45 years. Muskego is a wonderful community and we are very grateful to be a part of it.

All our best,
Terry & Gretchen Sindic
We had a jammin' good time...and broke our attendance records!
We estimate that 5,000 people attended our event last Friday evening.
Thank you to every sponsor, vendor, and volunteer for the success of Jammin'.
Congratulations to Roxane Adams, winner of the Indian American Flat Track Electric bike. The Tess Corners Fire Department would like to thank Indian Motorcycle of Metro Milwaukee located in Muskego for donating an Indian American Flat Track Electric Bike!
Drum Roll Please.....

The final numbers are in for our 2021 Fill the Boot drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association - Southern Wisconsin benefiting kids within our community and surrounding communities.
What an amazing turnout by our staff, and of course ALL of you that took the time to drop some spare change into our boots. Absolutely none of this is possible without the generosity that this community shows!

A special thanks goes out to Vintage Grounds Coffeehouse for hosting the dunk tank which raised $718.00 by themselves. Thank You to all of our staff members and the Muskego Police Department for participating and staying cool on a hot day.
Thank You to the Muskego Chamber of Commerce for allowing us to collect during Jammin' On Janesville. Being able to work within the record breaking crowd made this entire process super easy.

And finally, an ENORMOUS THANK YOU goes out to Pieper Electric, Inc. for their continued support of our Fill the Boot campaign. They once again sent a check for $3.500.00!!! Thank You so much.

With all of that said, we are pleased to announce that we have raised a total of $7,500.00 for the MDA. (All of the coins have yet to be tallied - we are estimating an additional 200-300 in coins).
Thank You to each and every one of you who donated, words cannot express our gratitude.

We'll see you all next year.

State Republicans Introduce Bill to Eliminate $300 Federal Unemployment Benefits

Contact Your Legislators to Repeal Wisconsin’s Oldest and Most Burdensome Tax
As the legislature continues to debate the state budget, and what type of tax cuts should be passed, WMC is calling on the legislature to include eliminating the personal property tax as a part of any mix of tax relief passed.
The personal property tax is one of Wisconsin’s oldest taxes pre-dating statehood. Over the last 170 years, the legislature has created a myriad of exemptions to the tax resulting in uneven enforcement, frequent audits, and litigation. For many small businesses, complying with the recordkeeping costs associated with the tax can be more expensive than the tax itself. All of Wisconsin’s neighbors—Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan—have repealed their personal property tax laws.
Cutting Wisconsin’s oldest tax will provide businesses almost $200 million a year in tax relief and save them millions more in audit and litigation costs. Contact Info Here
