Improvements made at Cascade park

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE—The village board of Cascade has worked with the Cascade Fire Department in recent months to make improvements at the Cascade Memorial Park.

The village, fire department, and many volunteers worked together to build a new brat stand, and replace the roofing on the park garage.

“I am proud to say the roofs are done down there,” said Village President David Jaeckels Tuesday night at the village’s October meeting.

“I would like to personally thank all the volunteers,” Jaeckels continued. “The majority of the outside of the brat stand is already complete. There were tons of volunteers who spent a lot of hours in that park. We should all be very proud and make sure to take the time to thank all the individuals that have been spending time down there. They did an awesome job on the roofs.”

Another recent improvement to the park is the Frisbee golf course, an Eagle Scout project initiated by Josh Harrison. The course opened in the past week, and will remain open as long as weather permits.

“It is very nice,” commented Jaeckels. “Josh did an excellent job. It’s amazing how much it’s been used already.” It was noted that several families have used it.

There is no charge to use the course. Frisbees are available at the park.

Other village business

Tuesday, November 11 is the date set for the budget hearing and special meeting of the village’s electors. Electors will be able to comment on and ask questions about the budget. Electors will vote on whether to approve the local tax levy. The village board will then vote on whether to approve Cascade’s 2015 budget. The village’s regular meeting will follow.

Jaeckels told the board he’d heard from Blue Cross that the cost of health insurance for village employees will rise by nine percent. Several board members agreed that alternative insurance rates should be investigated. One problem with that, Jaeckels said, was the difficulty in getting apples-to-apples comparisons; each plan, he said, offers something different.

The replacement of lights for the village hall has been on the agenda for the past few months. Trustee Craig DeSmid had investigated costs and the village had made a choice based on his recommendations. Now, board members remarked on how welllit the room was with the newlyinstalled lights.

Jaeckels asked board members if they’d seen the village hall’s roof, which had also been replaced.

It was hoped that the village’s old truck would be placed on the Internet auction site, Wisconsin Surplus, by the end of the week. The auction will end two weeks after it starts.

Two temporary Class “B” Special Fermented Malt Beverage Licenses were issued: First, to the Cascade Apollo Riders Snowmobile Club, for an all-you-can-eat pizza dinner on November 7; second, for the Cascade Fire Department, for a Halloween party on November 1.

Trick or Treating for the village will be Sunday, October 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.

Five building permits were issued in the past month.

Police report for Cascade: Two citations, five warnings, six complaints investigated, one traffic accident investigated, nine property checks, for a total of 23 hours and 79 miles. Complaints consisted of a minor accident, assist to a motorist, trespass to a dwelling, theft, stolen auto recovered, and assistance from the Sheboygan Sheriff’s Department to arrest a subject on a warrant.
