Adell swears in two new trustees

ADELL — Jared Spang and Arlo Neumann were sworn in as newly-elected trustees to the Village Board at the April 11 meeting.

Spang and Neumann replace Trustees Jane Schneider and Kim Peterson, who had decided not to run for re-election.

“I’d like to thank you two for your time and effort,” Village President Andrew Schmitt told Schneider and Peterson.

Brian Parr, re-elected to a trustee position, was also sworn in.

“You were on the board before, Arlo, right?” asked Trustee Leighton Holtz.

“Many years ago,” replied Neumann. “Last term I served was 1999.”

Because of the change in personnel, the board unanimously approved changing the list of village check signers to Schmitt, Trustee Arush Chahal, Neumann and Trustee James Jentsch.

Schmitt said the village is looking for people to serve on the Plan Commission and Board of Appeals. Anyone interested is encouraged to contact the village office. Schmitt hopes to name people to these and other committees at the May meeting.

Director of Public Works Shawn Bigelow received an estimate of a little over $6,000 for replacing and moving the tornado siren pole and stand. The person providing the estimate recommended installing the siren on a new pole at the corner of the fire house for better accessibility; that the pole be 50 feet high, because currently, much of the siren’s sound in one direction is deflected from the fire house and is not carrying as far as it could; and that the siren itself is in good condition and in no need of replacement.

Additionally, to set the siren off, someone has to come to the fire house and set it off manually. Board members agreed that, with a tornado, every minute counted, and installing the capacity to set it off by radio was a good idea.

“I really think it would save lives if, God forbid, something like that would happen,” said Holtz.

The board unanimously approved the expenditure, which will come from the equipment replacement line of the budget.

The village Open Book will be Tuesday, May 8, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Village Hall. Board of Review will be Wednesday, May 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The village’s next “Dumpster Day” will be Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Village residents can drop off large unwanted items like mattresses, furniture and small amounts of building materials. There is a charge of $10 per car or $20 per trailer or small pickup. Limitations are on the village website (for example, village residency must be shown with a driver’s license or utility bill; electronics, appliances, hazardous materials and tires are not accepted).

Police report for the past month: One citation at $200.50 (operating a motor vehicle with suspended registration); three warnings; four complaints investigated (informational appearance at Village Board meeting; assist sheriff for bank alarm in Random Lake; background check; dog at large); nine property checks; no arrests made, traffic accidents investigated, court appearances, or warrants.
