Cascade purchases new utility truck

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE — The village has a new utility truck - and a snowplow blade for it.

“The truck is purchased, and inside the shed,” Village President David Jaeckels told the Village Board at its monthly meeting Wednesday night.

The meeting had been moved from its regular second Tuesday to Wednesday, because of the primary election held Tuesday night.

Jaeckels said the seller was “very accommodating” regarding the purchase, allowing the truck to be examined thoroughly. “I’m really pleased with all of the mechanical side,” he said.

Dan Mayer, of Mayer Automotive, assisted the village’s search for a truck in recent months. Mayer is a former Cascade resident and village trustee. While serving as trustee, he was part of a committee tasked with searching for a replacement truck. When he moved away from Cascade, he volunteered to continue lending his expertise in assisting the village in its search.

The village has owned its current truck for about ten years.

The village had to decide Wednesday night on purchase of a snowplow for the truck. The village had three options before them. The village’s sewer and water committee had recommended one of the three. After discussing the virtues of each alternative, the board unanimously approved the purchase of a blade.

“There is the possibility that the fire department might replace the brat stand,” Jaeckels told the board. “They might tear it down and build a new one, larger than what’s down there” in the park, he said, and added that the garage roof needs replacement. “So I suggested to them that I bring it to the board, that possibly we would pay for the materials for the roofs, if they work on construction of both the brat stand and the garage.”

Jaeckels said he’d suggested to the fire department that the Rec Club also be invited to participate. The board voted unanimously to tentatively pay for the roofing materials for the two buildings, contingent on making arrangements with the other two organizations.

Trustee Craig DeSmid has researched costs of replacing the village hall’s roof. He gave the board quotes from two businesses. There were a few details missing from the quotes that Jaeckels and the rest of the board wanted to know. The board unanimously approved going with one of the quotes, contingent on clearing those details up.

Eight building permits were issued in July.

There were no operator licenses requested in July.

Trick or Treating for the village will be Sunday, Oct. 26, from 2 to 5 p.m. Residents who would like children to stop at their homes are asked to have their porch lights on.

The July police report showed one citation in Cascade and three in Lyndon. There were seven warnings in Cascade, six in Lyndon, five in Waldo, six in Adell. There were four complaints investigated in Cascade, six in Lyndon, six in Waldo and three in Adell. There were eight property checks in Cascade, seven in Lyndon, eight in Waldo and eight in Adell. There were no arrests, traffic accidents, or court appearances.

Jaeckels stated for the record that it was an exceptionally quiet weekend for the firemen’s picnic. “Everything went very well,” he said.
