Incorporation due to Zeidler[edit]

As anyone who's lived in the city knows, the incorporation was due specifically to fears of Oak Creek being annexed by the Zeidler administration. However, one user:OrangeMike seems determined to scrub this fact from the article for some reason. Putting this here to open discussion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.194.198.25 (talk) 00:55, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

With respect, an article on that controversy (or on Zeidler's administration in Milwaukee's article) would be a good place for that reference. Stating who initiated or proposed an annexation that ultimately caused this village to form is too much detail for the lead of an article. If there were a section here or elsewhere on the controversy, maybe that would work. In the lead, here, as it was, it's too close to POV, as it hints at a bias against Mr. Zeidler.

I add that, technically, a municipality annexes as a legislative act. The administration cannot annex itself, nor can individuals. To state that anyone other than the City of Milwaukee enacted an annexation is incorrect. Best, ZZ Claims ~ Evidence 01:03, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
I must disagree, as one who lived through both Frank Zeidler and Lee "Out of Town" Brown's regimes.OakCreekGuy 01:22, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
You're right, the issue probably deserves mention. But here, in the lead of this article, it's not directly relevant to what Oak Creek, WI is and why it is notable - which is what the lead is supposed to do. It looks like there have been some reversions already, removing your text from the lead - so, it's possible that the consensus is for the version without the reference to Mr. Zeidler. Is there some alternative that would work? ZZ Claims ~ Evidence 01:39, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Oak Creek Historical Society[edit]

The above-linked short and unreferenced article can fit into this municipality article. ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 20:56, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Oppose - The Oak Creek Historical Society is a private organization unaffiliated with the municipality of Oak Creek. The article could be expanded and references added. 32.218.39.164 (talk) 23:08, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
There are no references and no evidence of notability; I could probably CFD it, but it is related to the municipality and a great many towns have sections on their historical societies. Add references and content or we should merge it to here until maybe enough is added, however unlikely that is. ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 23:57, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
