Cascade acquires land for new fire hall

CASCADE — Several members of the Cascade Fire Department attended Tuesday night’s Village Board meeting, hoping to hear developments regarding land purchased for a new fire hall.

“I have the offer to purchase signed and returned to me,” Village President David Jaeckels said. “I took that to the lawyer. I took everything to the Highway Department and they did the survey. It’s all at the lawyer’s office right now.”

Jaeckels said he hoped to be able to close on the purchase by the end of the year.

One firefighter asked if the land would be deeded to the fire department.

“To the village,” Jaeckels replied. “The fire department is the village.”

Jaeckels asked the four firefighters to talk to him after the board meeting, to schedule a Building Committee meeting.

Trustee Steve Green recommended reducing the village directory to a one-page brochure that could be mailed to residents. Jaeckels said it could be updated annually. The board approved unanimously.

Trustee Carrie Krahn reported there had been one operator license application, but a background check revealed several items the applicant had not listed. Krahn said the applicant did not follow through with the application, so it will not be completed.

But the process had shown Krahn a possible improvement in the application. She asked the board if it were possible for the form to request an applicant to list all traffic violations for the past three years. Jaeckels referred the suggestion to Clerk/ Treasurer Kayla Simanovski.

Green reported that the village’s website is being redesigned by Josh Kasuboski at no cost to the village. Green said one benefit of the redesign will be greater ease of making updates.

No building permits were issued in the past month.

Police report for the past month: Four citations totaling $50 (no seatbelt; winter parking violation; two operating without proof of insurance); nine warnings; 10 complaints investigated (field interview; four winter parking enforcement warnings; assist with background check for Outagamie County Department of Health and Human Services; background check for Fire Department; unlicensed vehicles; followup on previous unlicensed vehicles complaint; vehicle lockout; winter parking; assist Sheriff’s Department; traffic complaint); 12 property checks; no arrests made, traffic accidents investigated, court appearances or warrants.
