Kohler seeks to fill two board seats

KOHLER – The village has two job openings – on the Village Board.

Trustees Chuck Keller and Susan Jaberg resigned from the board effective July 19 and at their July 17 meeting the board discussed replacing the two trustees.

In order to fill the empty spots, trustees suggested “beefing up” the ads in their search for candidates, being more specific on requirements instead of just “a one-liner that (they are) looking for people.”

Trustee John Winter was named interim chair of the Property Committee and to the vacancy on the Planning Commission to fill some of the vacancies left by the resignations.

Trustee Michael Zimmermann will go back on the Finance Committee to replace Keller. The board did not fill the vacancy left on the Cemetery Commission.

The board approved several recommendations from the Planning Commission.

They included special use and building permits for Aqua Nails and a Tractor Supply store, along with a request from MC Sports for a 12-foot building addition.

Trustees discussed, but took no action on, a predevelopment agreement presented to Aurora Health Care about three weeks earlier.

Aurora officials are still weighing the agreement, but trustees were hopeful there would be a final decision soon.

A $6,200 repair to the Sunset Road sewer, to fix an infiltration problem, was approved. Trustees were told that poor craftsmanship on the original project was probably to blame.

The West IV paving project is expected to fall behind schedule, due to weather, the board learned. But the work “should be looking pretty good” by the third week of August, they were told.

The project includes School Street to Green Tree Road, all the way to Greenfield Drive, Aspen Road, Mulberry Lane and Bayberry Lane.

Repair being deemed cheaper than the cost of replacement, the board approved an $18,000 repair to the sewer jet diesel engine, to be charged to the sewer utility.

Lot prices in the cemetery were increased. The rates will be raised from $10 per square foot to $12.50 a square foot for village residents and from $15 per square foot to $17.50 a square foot for non-residents, effective Jan. 1, 2018.

Hiring a new lifeguard for the Kohler pool and an aide for the public library was approved.

The Reunion Committee of the Kohler High School class of 1972 was granted a temporary beer and wine license for their event Sept. 3. The Kohler Police Athletic League was granted a temporary beer license for planned beer run from Sheboygan Falls to Kohler Sept. 9 as part of the Oktoberfest event.
