CASCADE — Five re-elected village officials were sworn in at Tuesday’s Village Board meeting.

Village President David Jaeckels and Trustees Jason Harrison, Carrie Krahn and Jim Larson were sworn in by Clerk/ Treasurer Kayla Simanovski.

Also sworn in was Todd Triebensee, who was re-elected fire chief by members of the Cascade Fire Department. Jaeckels told the board that swearing in the fire chief hadn’t been done in the past, but he thought it would be a good idea.

Triebensee told the board the fire department had been audited by the state and passed with “flying colors.” Jaeckels complimented the department and emphasized to the public that the fire department and first responders are in “dire need” of anyone who would like to volunteer to help out with either, or both, in any capacity.

“You will be welcomed with open arms,” Jaeckels said.

The fire department has asked the board to consider the possibility of finding larger facilities for the department. A subcommittee was formed and has met to discuss options. One action Jaeckels took, with the board’s approval, was to have the old fire hall appraised. Jaeckels told the board the building and property have been appraised at $171,000.

The Relief and Health Committee met and wrote up a possible series of steps to take in enforcing the nuisance ordinance. These possible ordinance amendments will be discussed by the board next month.

The village cleanup day will be Saturday, May 6. Residents with yard waste (brush, branches, etc.) they’d like picked up are asked to have it at the curb that day by 8 a.m., when collection starts. Residents having a large amount are asked to please give board members a hand with it. The large ends of tree branches should be positioned toward the street, to make it as easy as possible to feed the chipper. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to meet their Village Board.

Police report for March: One citation for non-registration, for $175.30; five complaints investigated (peace officer, two unlicensed vehicles, EMS call, illegal dumping); four warnings; nine property checks; no traffic accidents investigated, arrests made, court appearances, or warrants.
