CASCADE — The Village Board received a report on improvements to the gazebo at the Cascade Memorial Park Tuesday.

Seth Woodke summarized his Eagle Scout project where he and other members of Troop 880 refurbished the gazebo.

“This summer, right before school started, we stained the gazebo and sanded it down,” Woodke told the board. “This coming spring, we might go out there again just make some finishing touches on it.”

After purchasing materials, there is still money left from that donated by the Cascade Lions. Woodke said they are thinking of buying chairs with that money.

Board members thanked Woodke and complimented him for his and the other Scouts’ work. Woodke in turned thanked the board for allowing him to undertake this Eagle Scout project.

Woodke’s mother added that the combined Scouts’ work added up to over 200 hours.

“An asset to our community,” Village President Dave Jaeckels said.

The board held a caucus to nominate candidates for board positions that are up for re-election. When the board’s president is up for re-election, the president cannot lead the caucus, so Trustee Gerald Hendrickson was selected to do so.

For the position of president, Jaeckels was nominated.

Three trustee positions are up for re-election: those currently held by Jim Larson, Jason Harrison, and Carrie Krahn. Those three were nominated for the three positions. That concluded the caucus.

Larson reported that one building permit was issued in the past month.

Deputy Jesse Smith of the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department attended the meeting.

“I’m just popping in,” Smith told the board. “We rotate our assignments within the county, frequently, and I’ve been designated to keep watch over Cascade more times than not.”

Jaeckels invited Smith to stay and visit after the meeting and to check out the squad car in the garage.

“I’d like to express our gratitude for all the work you do,” commented Hendrickson. “I know, a lot of times, there’s a lack of respect for law enforcement. So thank you for your service.”

Jaeckels asked trustees Tom Horner and Steve Green to schedule a meeting with him to discuss a possible new fire station for the Cascade Fire Department. A request to look into a new station had come to the board from Cascade Fire Chief Todd Triebensee at the board’s November meeting.

Jaeckels also asked Hendrickson and Larson to schedule a planning meeting with him.

Police report for December: Five warnings; one complaint investigated
