Deputy visits Cascade board meeting

CASCADE — The Village Board received a routine visit from Deputy Jesse Smith of the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department Tuesday.

Smith asked if there were any specific problems in the village.

Board members told Smith there is an occasional car driving out of the Mill Pond Park exit with its lights out.

“We used to have that issue down at the park, as well, in the parking lot,” said Village President David Jaeckels. “But we have security cameras down there now, and that seems to have alleviated that.”

Jaeckels agreed that the Mill Pond Park dam area could use more watching.

Board members expressed concern with speeding vehicles entering and leaving the village. Smith replied that the department has a new device that can monitor speeds and keep statistics. That will help if there is a pattern of times when violations occur.

“If this person is consistently doing this, we can see those violations,” Smith told the board. “We can target that specific time and get that person that’s specifically responsible.”

The board thanked Smith for his service.

The annual village cleanup day, conducted by members of the board, had taken place the previous Saturday. Jaeckels asked if any problem areas had been noted.

Trustee Gerald Hendrickson observed, “The village in general has a lot less brush and other stuff, than it used to. That’s from my perspective, driving around. You remember some of the piles and stuff we’d have to clean up. I think, generally, people are more concerned about keeping up their properties.”

Jaeckels asked if any properties needed atten- tion. Board members could think of a few. After some discussion, it was decided that members of the Health and Relief Committee should contact any owners about cleaning up their properties. This was considered preferable and more neighborly than initiating contact through a representative from the Sheriff’s Department.

“It’s a nicer way to approach it,” Jaeckels said. “If I had an issue like that, I’d much prefer the village representative come and knock on my door first.”

The ordinance section addressing unsightly properties has been under review and revision for the past few months and will be in place in the near future.

The committee investigating options for a new fire hall continues its efforts.

“They held another meeting,” Jaeckels reported. “They are still exploring. There are possibilities [for locations] on the east end of town. Building prices and options are being discussed. It’s still a study in place.”

Trustee Steve Green said committee members had toured the fire hall at Iron Ridge. “Their’s is two years old. It’s very adequate, and that’s what our fire department is looking for. We’re moving forward.”

“I want to make sure we’re diligent, and thinking everything through,” added Jaeckels.

One Class B liquor license was issued to the Cascade Rec Club.

Trustee Jim Larson reported issuing six building permits in the past month.

The board unanimously approved Clerk Kayla Simanovski to attend an educational convention in Green Bay.

Police report for April: Five warnings; three complaints investigated (peace officer, ATL for vehicle for Plymouth PD, voting day polling); 11 property checks; no citations, arrests made, traffic accidents investigated, court appearances, or warrants.
