Cascade Park expansion official

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE—Several months after the process started, the village’s purchase of 10 acres adjacent to the Cascade Memorial Park has been successfully completed.

“The property is ours,” announced Village President David Jaeckels at the village board meeting Tuesday night.

Cost of the 10 acres was a little over $11,000.

The board unanimously approved three street repairs and improvements, as recommended by the village’s Streets Committee:

• Blacktopping of West Water Street, from Madison to Francis Avenue.

• Repaving the alley from West Water Street to the east.

• Replacement of a culvert on Clark Street.

As decided by the board last month, the village has applied for a grant, through which the village might purchase a speed sign. There was no progress reported on that application.

Trustee Carrie Krahn recently completed open meeting training.

Seven building permits were issued by the village in the past month.

The board unanimously approved several liquor licenses and operators licenses.

Police report for Cascade: 5 citations totaling $747.50 (no valid license; no motorcycle endorsement; failure to stop for an emergency vehicle; two seatbelt violations); nine warnings; six property checks; and six complaints investigated (noise complaint; suspicious open door; EMS; background check; bar check; IRS scam).

Because Clerk Kayla Brown will be at training the second Tuesday of July, both the regular board meeting and the Sewer and Water Committee will meet the first Tuesday of that month, July 7.

“I will editorialize a little bit,” Jaeckels said near the conclusion of the meeting. “I helped at the First Responder Breakfast on Sunday and there was a nice turnout. But to me, it was disappointing. I think the people of this community, and the surrounding townships that those volunteers service, should be supporting those organizations. You have a number of volunteers who put in a lot of, lot of hours, and when needed, will be at your doorstep. The least you can do is go down and buy a breakfast. The Firemen’s Picnic is coming up and I feel the same way. But especially when those first responders—there’s no charge when they come to help you.”
