Part of the Town of Menasha has voted to become the Village of Fox Crossing.

Residents who live west of Little Lake Butte des Morts voted Tuesday by an 86 to 14 percent margin to incorporate as a village. An election for six trustees and a president of the new village is expected to be set for early June, according to the town's website.

Those who live east of Little Lake Butte des Morts remain the Town of Menasha. Those residents could be annexed into Fox Crossing, the City of Menasha or the City of Appleton. They could be attached to Fox Crossing by a border agreement process, as well.
