Cascade Board approves park plans, discusses chicken complaints

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE—Four village officers were sworn in at the village board meeting Tuesday night, one of them new to the board.

Clerk Kayla Brown swore in President David Jaeckels, and Trustees Jim Larson, Jason Harrison, and (new to the board) Carrie Krahn.

Jaeckels reported that the village’s purchase of 10 acres adjacent to the Cascade Memorial Park, which has been in process for several months, has been approved by the landowner. All that remains is some final paperwork. The final figure, which includes all fees, on the parcel will be $11,252.80.

Jaeckels said an acre that is adjacent to the just-purchased land could be cleared of trees and stumps, to provide a parking area. He’s received an offer of $1500 to do this, which board members considered a reasonable price. The board voted unanimously to accept that offer.

There was a complaint of a resident having chickens within the village limits. One part of the complaint was addressed by Captain Cory Roessler, Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department, because one of the chickens was a rooster that caused enough noise to violate the nuisance ordinance.

However, there is nothing in the ordinance that forbids having chickens, as far as the board could find. The board decided to revisit the question of chickens at next month’s meeting.

Jaeckels read a letter from the Cascade Lions. They will host an informational meeting, “Drugs in a Small Town” on Tuesday, April 28, 7 p.m. at the Cascade Lions Clubhouse, 303 W. Water St. Speaking will be Inspector Todd Traas of the Sheboygan Drug Investigation Unit. Anyone interested should contact Madonna Schneider at (920) 528-7961 by Thursday, April 23.

Village residents are reminded that Village

Cleanup Day will take place this Saturday, April 18. Items for pickup should be on curbs by 7 a.m. that morning.

Five building permits were issued in March.

The Board of Review will take place May 11.

Open Book will be from 3 to 5 p.m., with the Board of Review following, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Police report for Cascade: no citations, arrests, or traffic accidents; 4 warnings; 7 property checks, 3 complaints investigated (winter parking, background check, and theft complaint).
