Cascade Scout’s bridge project under budget

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE—The Village Board heard on Tuesday that refurbishing of the footbridge at the Cascade Memorial Park cost less than the board had agreed to spend for the project.

Tony Leissring had come to the board in August asking if he could improve the footbridge for an Eagle Scout project. At that meeting, the board granted Leissring permission and approved spending up to $750 for materials.

Tuesday Leissring shared photos of the footbridge. Improvements included a new deck and repainted railings. He said that, after he’d completed his paperwork and had accounted for all receipts, total expenditures had come to $749.

“You did an awesome job,” Village Presi- dent David Jaeckels told Leissring. Trustee Jason Harrison said the bridge looked brand new. Trustee Gerald Hendrickson said it looked great.

After several more compliments from the board, Leissring thanked the board for granting him the opportunity to work on the bridge. Without this project, he said, he probably would still be looking for an Eagle Scout project. “It means a lot to me,” he said as he shook hands with each board member.

Hendrickson said there have been many compliments on various improvements in the Cascade community that were the result of Eagle Scout projects. “It’s just outstanding,” he said.

The board unanimously approved a temporary liquor license for the Eat, Drink & Be Scary fundraiser, to be held Oct. 31, 7 p.m. to midnight at the Cascade Elementary School. Partial proceeds of this event will go to Pink Heals of Sheboygan County, and to the Vollrath Division of Sea Cadets.

A temporary liquor license was unanimously approved for the Apollo Riders, holding a pizza fundraiser on Nov. 6 at the Lions Club, from 5 to 8:30 p.m.

Jaeckels also mentioned the Oct. 30 Halloween party at the fire hall, from 6 p.m. to midnight, and added, “Board members should try to attend all of these functions. You should at least show up for a little while.”

First Responder Captain Darrel Kasuboski told the board that the 2016 budget for First Responders has not increased from the current year. He said that was possible because the picnic and other fundraisers benefitting the First Responders were well attended by the public.

Kasuboski said if anyone is interested in participating in the First Responders, he can be reached at (920) 980-4315 for more information.

The public hearing for the 2016 budget will be held at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 10, at the Village Hall. The regular Village Board meeting will take place right after the hearing.

Insurance rates for village employees have increased by thirteen per cent, so a committee was formed to study insurance options.

Jaeckels reminded everyone that winter parking rules start in November.

There were two building permits in the past month.

Police report for Cascade: 5 warnings, 7 complaints investigated (sick animal, SSD assistance with motorcycle crash, theft from vehicle, disturbance, background check, EMS call, and warrant arrest), 1 arrest, 7 property checks, 1 warrant, no citations or court appearances.
