HOWARDS GROVE— Howards Grove Public Works Director Ryan Welsing updated the Village Board on the sidewalk project Tuesday.

Welsing said the work is about 95 percent finished. Landscapers will need to come back in the spring and look at the settling after the winter frost and melt down. It was also noted that a partial reimbursement has been submitted and paid out by Sheboygan County.

Welsing also stated that FEMA maping is on the radar for 2015 and he will be contacting Scott Schram of SMS to get that completed.

Trustee Ed Pahl questioned if the village should move this project to the current engineering firm. However it was explained that then the project would have to start over and that would create more expenses.

Village President James Scheiber explained that Village Attorney John St. Peter and Phil Cosson of Ehlers & Associates will attend the Feb. 3 board meeting to give an update on the lawsuit and explain to the newest members of the board the working of the tax incremental finance district and the village’s role.

The Millersville Recreation Association requested a contribution from the village toward the cost of purchasing and installing batting cages. There was concern as to the size of the batting cage that is being contemplated for purchase and the placement at the park.

Trustee Henry Verfuerth stated that he would like to meet with the association to go over the board’s concerns and to bring a recommendation back to the board.

The Finance Committee recommended contracting with Schenck for auditing services for records from calendar year 2014. Trustee Jeff Plass moved to approve the 2015 auditing contract with Schenck as recommended by the Finance Committee and the motion was carried unanimously.

Rebecca Persick introduced herself to the board, explaining that she is a candidate for the Sheboygan County Circuit Court Judge Branch 4.

Persick briefly explained her professional career as an attorney and working for the Sheboygan Courts. Persick also listed her many supporters and in closing requested that the Village Board give careful consideration into the candidates that will be on the ballot and would appreciate their vote at the Feb. 17 primary.
