Fire/EMS – Joint Fire meeting was held on August 30, 2023.  The joint committee recommends to not proceed with the billing at this time as the Village cannot charge for fire calls.  Towns can.  The budget for the fire department was approved by the joint fire committee.  It is being increased by 2% ($942.97) for 2024.

Public Works – D. Schultz stated the Jetter is working at this time.  It was recommended that when the Jetter is stored the camera be put high so water does not freeze on it. The generator is in the process of being built and should be installed by the end of the month.  When they install the generator, they will also move the pad at that time with no cost to the village as previously stated from them.

Discussion was held on the tire roundup.  D. Schultz said the Town would like to leave the tire roundup at 12 tires.  After much discussion G. Otto made a motion seconded by L. Helmrick to skip the tire roundup for this year.  Motion approved 4-0.
