Fire/EMS – Joint Fire meeting to be held on August 30, 2023
Public Works – D. Schultz updated the board on the Jetter problems. There is a wiring issue. The cable keeps breaking where it is used the most. This can be fixed. G. Otto made a motion, seconded by D. Warzynski, that the board give the go ahead and get the repairs done by reversing the wire on the Jetter to put the good wire first, at a cost to the village for $600.00 plus parts. Motion approved 5-0. The $600.00 repair is a temporary repair that to fix it right would need to spend the $12,000.00.
Dennis reported that he talked to the person from Generac for the generator we are waiting for and they want us to pay for the moving of the pad. This is not going to happen as they put it in the wrong place to begin with. We have correspondence that state they are going to move it. Dennis will keep on top of this issue.
Discussion was held on the tire roundup. D. Schultz said the Town would like to leave the tire roundup as before as they have budgeted according. He told them, the Village would be willing to go with 8 tires instead of 14. Details still up for discussion.
D. Schauer reported that the front window in the library is fogging up. The back door has a pallet hole in it.
We are going to put in ads again for a person for the collection site. If anyone is interested call the clerk’s office.
