Cascade to have LED lights installed in village facilities

CASCADE — The Village Board unanimously agreed Tuesday night to accept a proposal from Great Lakes Eco Systems of Saukville to replace all lights in village facilities with LED lights.

After Great Lakes submitted its first proposal, board members realized some buildings had been overlooked. Great Lakes submitted a new proposal, which Trustee Steve Green said is $6,705.

Village President David Jaeckels asked board members to give their thoughts on the proposal. Each trustee commented favorably, and the board voted unanimously to accept the proposal from Great Lakes.

After the board approved minutes from all committee meetings held in the past month, Jaeckels commented, “I do want to compliment all the committees” for taking care of the items each was tasked with.

The board approved liquor licenses for Marshall’s Gas ’N’ Goods, The Lanes, Sipp’s Bar N Grill, Cascade Lions, Cascade First Responders, and Cascade Recreation. The board approved operator’s licenses for each. Also approved was a temporary liquor license for the Cascade Fire Department, for their Aug. 3-5 picnic and for their Oct. 20 Fall Fest.

The board approved clerk Kayla Simanovski’s attendance at the Clerk’s Institute.

The board passed a resolution acknowledging the Compliance Maintenance Annual Report (CMAR).

Jaeckels said Spillman Flex, an advanced records and communication system for law enforcement, should be in place by July. In April, Police Chief Jason Liermann had requested the village pay for the system, which will make communications and recordkeeping easier, and provide better monitoring of police vehicle locations for safety.

There had been complaints of noise from a wind generator. The Wind Turbine Committee met and reviewed a report from Northern Power, which said both turbines in the village “were at 98 percent published specifications for 2017 and continue to perform as expected.”

Trustee Jim Larson reported there were 13 building permits submitted, which is more than he’d seen before in one month. The board approved them.

Trustee Jason Harrison said a list of abandoned cars in the village will be sent to the police chief.

Harrison said several new trees have been planted to replace some that were victims of the emerald ash borer. The village is still accepting donations to plant more trees in the village.

Police report for the past month: Two citations, totaling $20 (both for lacking proof of insurance); six warnings (four dog license issues; speeding; improper use of seat belt); 13 property checks; one warrant (probation and parole warrant); 11 complaints investigated (four dog license warnings; monthly Chief of Police meeting; probation and parole warrant; two background checks; abandoned vehicle; two assist Sheriff’s Department).
