EL goes for the dog - stations

by Emmitt B. Feldner of The Review staff

ELKHART LAKE – The Village Board was for the dogs Monday.

Specifically, the board approved the purchase of eight to 10 dog waste stations to be placed on walkways and other places around the village.

The stations include a plastic bag dispenser and a closed disposal container to make it easier for pet owners to dispose of waste when walking dogs or other animals.

“We have the money, the question is where we’re going to put them,” Trustee Lynn Shovan reported for the Public Health and Welfare Committee. “After we figure out how many we’re going to get, we’ll decide where to put them.”

Shovan also reported that the committee directed village staff to prepare a permit form and criteria for keeping animals other than dogs, cats and other typical pets in the village.

Trustee Pam Garton told the board that flower pots are expected to arrive this week and they will be set up around the village by the Beautification Committee by the end of the month.

Kapur and Associates, the village’s consulting engineers, will take a look at the Public Works building to evaluate the building and its site, then give the village suggestions on the next step to take with the building, Trustee Michael Wolf reported.

Trustee Steve Kapellen said the fire department is setting up a schedule for replacing trucks. “The village should be looking at a (new) ladder truck in 2018 and the town of Rhine will be looking at a pumper truck at about the same time,” Kapellen said.

Village President Alan Rudnick updated the board on the progress on tax incremental finance district 2, which is expected to be fully approved by the end of May.
