WALDO — Trustee Mark Spitz chaired the Monday Village Board meeting in the absence of Village President Gary Dekker.

Clerk/Treasurer Michelle Brecht said the village’s website, villageofwaldo.com, is greatly im- proved. It features village news, upcoming events (like the Dec. 17 holiday party), area businesses, information on permits and licensing, facility rentals, and agendas and minutes for Village Board and Utility Board meetings.

Spitz said he would like to see a history of Waldo on the site. Brecht said that is being worked on.

“It’s one place that gives a snapshot of what’s happening in Waldo and the surrounding area,” Village Administrator Bruce Neerhof added.

The Lions Club has pledged an amount to support the village’s holiday party Sunday, Dec. 17 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Waldo Memorial Hall. The board discussed whether further funds were needed and should be spent by the village. Trustee Mike Hintz assured them he would see that any needed funds will be covered.

The party is family-friendly, with games and activities for all ages. Anyone wishing to donate or to work at this event can contact the village office at (920) 528-8121 or clerk@villageofwaldo.com.

Spitz said the Christmas decorations on village streets were very attractive but he wondered if there could be more. “This is not something we need to talk about tonight, other than to find time to put it on the agenda in the future, and maybe look at some new decorations,” he said.

Village Administrator Neerhof’s report included:

• The Sheboygan County Highway Department finishing work on Pheasant Run.

• The star has been placed on the water tower. Hintz commented with enthusiasm that the star was “awesome,” and that everyone he’s heard from appreciates it.

• Neerhof will begin working on 2019 projects.

The board unanimously approved:

• A resolution establishing procedures to promote public participation in updating the village’s 10-year coordination plan.

• Allowing the Lions Club to use the Memorial Hall at no charge for the village holiday party.

• The appointments of poll workers for 2018: Cheryl Steuerwald, Karen VanEss, Hollie Wisniewski, Jean Worth, Jim O’Reilly, Judi Ziehm, Michaele Schramm, Ron Beuthien, Barb Harmon, Janelle Schlenther.

A resident in the audience recommended posting village board agendas in more places than they currently are, which is the post office, the village office and Waldo State Bank. Board members were agreeable to reviewing adding one or more locations in the future.

Police report for the past month: Three citations totaling $360.60 (non-registration/expired; failure to fasten seatbelt; operation of vehicle with suspended/ revoked registration); 13 warnings; four complaints investigated (directed patrol — attended Waldo Village Board meeting; two separate incidences of winter parking enforcement; theft with currently no suspects and a continuing investigation); 19 property checks; no arrests made, traffic accidents investigated, court appearances or warrants.

Board members asked Brecht to see if more details could be released about the theft.
