Cascade close to new utility truck

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE — The village of Cascade has been searching for a replacement for its utility truck, and the search might be nearing a conclusion.

“I don’t believe our truck is strong enough to make it through the winter,” said President David Jaeckels at the monthly Village Board meeting Tuesday.

Dan Mayer, of Mayer Automotive, is searching for a replacement truck on the village’s behalf. Mayer is a former Cascade resident and village trustee. While serving as such, he was on a committee to search for a replacement truck. When he moved away from Cascade, he volunteered to continue the search for the village.

The village has owned its current truck for about ten years. Jaeckels said Mayer has found a possible good candidate for a purchase.

The board voted unanimously to authorize Mayer to arrange purchase of a truck, up to a certain amount, and that Mayer receive compensation for the time he’s spent in his search.

Camisha Miller has resigned as village clerk. In Miller’s letter of resignation, which Jaeckels read to the board, Miller stated that another opportunity had become available to her. Jaeckels said that Sherry Gallagher, village clerk for some years before Miller, has returned as interim clerk. Kayla Brown has been hired as the new clerk, with Gallagher mentoring her during the transition.

The Cascade Housing Authority was audited in June. As trustee Steve Green explained, two minor mistakes were found. The mistakes were considered to be on the part of the Housing Authority, and that entity was fined $654. “Normally, they don’t go after these, but according to them, because of budgets being tight, they’re picking up every penny they can,” said Green.

Trustee Craig DeSmidt reported on his continued research on replacing lights for the Village Hall.

The police report: In June, there was one citation in Cascade, three in Adell. Six warnings were given in Cascade, five in Lyndon, six in both Waldo and Adell. Complaints investigated: three in both Cascade and Lyndon, one in both Waldo and Adell. Property checks: eight in both Cascade and Lyndon, nine in Waldo, seven in Adell.

Three building permits were issued in June.

Because of scheduling conflicts with voting, the next village meeting has been rescheduled to Wednesday, August 13.

Jaeckels announced that the Cascade Recreation Association’s softball tournament will be held this weekend, July 11-13. He encouraged all community and board members to support the tournament, because proceeds go to support youth softball and baseball programs.
