I am sorry for the grainy version. I am trying to obtain a nice clear electronic version.

From the lawsuit, you can see that as of August 14th 2007 or about Mayor McCue knew the intention of Wal-Mart’s involvement.

Whispers of Wal-Mart at Iceport site swirlBy Chantel BalzellStaff WriterPosted: Oct. 24, 2007
The Common Council, the Community Development Authority and the Plan Commission are hosting a special meeting at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday Oct. 31, to discuss the future of the Iceport property. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Oct. 23 that a Wal-Mart representatives will attend the meeting. "It's news to me," Cudahy Mayor Ryan McCue told South Shore NOW on Oct. 23. "I'm waiting to see what happens just like everybody else." Continental Properties Co. will present its plans for development on the 26-acre site, which was to have housed an ice rink project that never came to fruition. Continental Properties has a purchase agreement in the works with former developer Sportsites. "Wal-Mart is definitely on the lowest of my lists of things I'd like to see in Cudahy," McCue said. But he said city officials will allow Continental Properties the opportunity to present its development plans. "We can only control what they build, but I'm not a fan of Wal-Mart," McCue said. Representatives from Continental Properties and Wal-Mart could not immediately be reached for comment.
