Eagle Scout projects continue to improve Cascade park

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE—The Village Board heard from two Boy Scouts who are making improvements to the community to earn their Eagle Scout badges.

Seth Woodke told the board how he has coordinated work in the past few months to upgrade the gazebo at the Cascade Memorial Park. He passed a photo album around to board members, showing progress made. Woodke said work on the gazebo should be completed this week.

Tony Leissring proposed restoring the footbridge at the park, for his Eagle Scout project. He plans to put a new deck on it and paint the railings.

Trustee Jason Harrison made a motion that the village spend up to $600 to cover the materials for the footbridge improvements. When asked if that would be sufficient, he reconsidered and amended his motion to a maximum of $750. This was approved by the board unanimously.

“Excellent job, young man,” Village President David Jaeckels told Leissring. “Good luck. We look forward to seeing that done. Both of you gentlemen, good job.”

Trustee Gerald Hendrickson said the Cascade Boy Scout troop should be congratulated for having such a high proportion of scouts who have earned, or are in the process of earning, Eagle Scout badges. The board expressed appreciation for what these two Scouts, and others, have done to improve the community.

The county is changing its emergency radio system. Local municipalities are facing the need to upgrade, but the county will pay 70 percent of costs to replace equipment. Cascade will need to spend $1905.45 to upgrade. A plan to pay that amount over time was available, but Jaeckels said he preferred to make the entire payment, to which the rest of the board was agreeable.

The board unanimously approved the purchase of the emergency equipment.

One operator’s license was unanimously approved by the board.

There were seven building permits applied for in the past month.

Traditionally, trick or treating is done the Sunday before Oct. 31 (or on Oct. 31 itself, if that date is a Sunday). That would put trick or treating this year on Sunday, Oct. 25. The pros and cons of scheduling trick or treating for Oct. 31 were discussed, but it was finally decided that trick or treating in the village will be held Sunday, Oct. 25, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Police report for Cascade: 1 citation at $200.50 (underage drinking); 7 warnings; 9 complaints investigated (kids’ parade, probation violation, underage drinking, disturbance, parking issue, 3 background checks, 1 domestic dispute); 1 arrest made (probation hold); 5 property checks; no traffic accidents investigated, court appearances, or warrants.
