HG board adjusts mobile truck fees

Steve Ottman Review Correspondent

HOWARDS GROVE.The village has reached an agreement with Tiffany Trumm, representing the Howards Grove Activity Center, for a special food vendor event held for senior citizens.

Trumm questioned the board’s decision to allow a two-week permit for mobile truck vendors at a rate of $100 per permit, when the permit stated that it was good for a year. She pointed out that this was a lot of money charged for a possible one-time event.

Trumm stated that these food trucks bring communities together and didn’t understand why the village wasn’t following the guidelines in the ordinance. She applied for a one year permit and asked why it was limited to two weeks.

Village President James Scheiber stated that he would like to go with a calendar year permit and pro-rate the rest of this year or as a one-day event with a charge of $25 per truck.

Trumm felt that this would be satisfactory. Board members agreed to a fee of $25 for each truck for a one day event.

Mobile truck license permits were originally approved for Gregory Lee of Gyros 2 Go LLC and Marc Ehler of Bomallies Food Truck for a two-week duration beginning Sept. 19, 2014, and expiring on Sept. 29, 2014, at the Sept. 2 board meeting.

Board members approved the reallocation of Park Impact Fees to the General Fund to reimburse for prior expenses. The village attorney will be requested to create a resolution to move the fees to the general fund to reimburse the fund for previous year’s improvements.

At the Sept. 2 meeting the board discussed the revenues and expenses of the impact fee account and questioned if the money would be moved to the general fund to pay back for previous year’s exby penses or to be allocated towards current projects in 2014.

No decision was made at that time. It was noted that the Finance Committee didn’t make a recommendation and that they will be discussing this issue again at the Oct. 7 meeting.

After the public hearing on a zoning change request, a recommendation from the Plan Commission to split .31 acres via certified survey map for Sheboygan Oil Co./ Richard Guske from Anthony and Brandi Mahlendorf was approved. Rezoning from R-1 residential to business was also approved.

A discussion was held with Captain Cory Roeseler of the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department on the priorities in the upcoming contract with the county. Roeseler wanted to work one-onone with an open conversation on what the villages needs are and said traffic problems, safety issues and hours of work should be prioritized.

In the president’s report, Scheiber stated that the sidewalk project is 75 percent complete. FEMA mapping will be completed shortly after that project is done.

The barn has been raised on Millersville Avenue. The TID progress was discussed and a preliminary budget with a five-year plan was also discussed.

The last pavement has not been completed by Eastern Pines. Pekarske will be complete later this year. They are actively trying to market properties.

The tennis court repavement has been started and should be completed by the end of the month.

The North River Parkway project hasn’t started, although the contractor has said he feels it will start by Sept. 24.

A request for the board to allow a church to rent the community center for church services was tabled to the Oct. 7 board meeting. They questioned what the rates should be and how often the center would be used.
