Cascade starts process on sex offender ordinance

CASCADE — The Village Board voted unanimously at its Tuesday night meeting to begin the official process of passing an ordinance restricting residency for sex offenders.

Clerk Kayla Simanovski presented the board with a draft of the ordinance under consideration, and asked trustees to review it and notify her of any needed corrections. Trustee Tom Horner said it looked similar to those he’d seen from other municipalities. Village President David Jaeckels agreed, saying, “This is pretty much standard.”

The proposal includes a provision that would prohibit registered sex offenders from living anywhere within 2,000 feet of a church, park, school or other places where children might be expected to gather.

The next steps for this ordinance include the proper public notices and a public hearing. Simanovski was asked to put this process in motion.

New garbage collection schedule

Mike Thun of Advanced Disposal told the board there will be a change in the day of the week that they pick up garbage in Cascade. Currently, it is collected on Mondays, with recyclables being collected every other week. Starting in January, garbage will be collected in Cascade on Thursdays, and recyclables will be collected every week.

Trustee Jim Larson and others happily greeted the news about every-week recyclables pickup. More than one person present said they couldn’t always keep track of whether it was recycling week or not.

Residents are reminded to have their garbage and recyclables out and ready for pickup by 7 a.m., but to keep in mind that it should not be put out over 12 hours sooner than that time.

Advanced Disposal is changing its garbage pickup schedule in other municipalities, as well. Residents should check with their local government offices.

The board will meet to begin initial work on a 2017 budget on Monday, Oct. 3, 6 p.m.

The board unanimously approved:

• One application for an operator’s license.

• Five building permit applications.

• Authorization for Jaeckels to sign off on a lien satisfaction for an old RLF loan.

Trustee Horner recently completed Open Meeting Law training.

Jaeckels said he’d heard that incorrect times were given for the village’s trick or treating, but he did not know where the incorrect times were published. The correct date and time for Cascade’s trick or treating is Sunday, Oct. 30, 2 to 5 p.m.

Police report for August: Five warnings; seven complaints investigated (background check, open door, kids’ parade, homeless person arrest, paper service, disturbance at picnic, suspicious vehicle); 14 property checks; no traffic accidents, citations, court appearances, arrests made, or warrants.
