DELAFIELD - The Delafield Common Council has voted to revoke the license of the Hartland Sportsman's Club.

Neighbors wanted the club closed due to safety reasons.

A stray bullet recently hit a pregnant woman sitting at a nearby restaurant.

"I'm disappointed," said Jeff Krickhahn, the only alderman to vote for the license.

"I felt that there was room for the Hartland Sportsman's Club to be open.  I was really hoping that we could come to an agreement, middle of the road, maybe be open for archery....maybe trap shooting."

He said the club is closed, but someone could come to the planning commission with a new plan for the facility.

"It's going to be an uphill battle for them."
