by Verla Peichl Falls News Correspondent


STEVE BAUER STEVE BAUER Steve Bauer is running unopposed for his fifth two-year term as Sheboygan Falls Town Chairman in the upcoming spring general election on Tuesday, April 7.

Bauer was initially elected to the Sheboygan Falls town chairman position in April 2007 and last spring he was elected to serve a two-year term as a Sheboygan County Board supervisor.

Bauer declined to answer specific questions via e-mail about the current status and future direction of the town of Sheboygan Falls.

However, he did submit the following information about his tenure as town chairman.

“The last eight years have been eventful and accomplishments have been many. It’s been a very busy eight years as chairman.

“I am running unopposed and looking forward to my fifth term as chairman. I was first elected to the board as supervisor in 2006 and sought the chairman’s position in 2007.

“I am eager to help the town grow and prosper despite today’s tough economic times.

“My main concern in this township is to keep your taxes down to a minimum.

“Since the last time I ran for chairman, I succeeded in securing a Sheboygan County County Board position, which can be beneficial to the town.

“We need to keep up with fire protection and this continues to be challenging, subsidizing the cost is proving to be a greater challenge.

“Our fire house is in need of repairs and/or expansion. We are moving forward and signing a fire department contract with the Johnsonville Fire Department. We do not have a contract with the town of Sheboygan Falls Fire Department right now

“Maintaining and rebuilding roads is important and challenging. In the past, before I became chairman, road maintenance had been severely neglected. Now the town continues working hard on upgrading it’s roads

“The new clerk/treasurer has been beneficial to the township attending clerk meetings keeping up to date and a positive experience to work with when you see her tell her ‘thank you.’

“The Smart Growth plan has been finalized and has already started to become useful.

“A new Plan Commission has been created and put into place.

“We have added public input to the agenda, so you are able to participate in the meeting to express your concerns and ideas to the board each month. We have found this to be useful.

“Some ordinances have not been updated since the 1970s and we are continually working on this because ordinances are important for a clear direction.

“I can assure the public I will be available with an open ear and open mind. Your ideas for this township are important and it will also be important to me to try to help you execute your ideas.

“It has been a pleasant experience in the past eight years getting to know some of the town residents and their concerns. I am looking forward to another two years. There is still a lot to be done.”
