Cascade hears concerns about cattle, junk cars

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

CASCADE — During the public comments section of the meeting, resident Douglas Tock told the Village Board of continued problems with cattle from neighboring fields getting loose and causing damage to Tock’s property.

Though Tock expressed his frustration, he was not on the agenda and the board therefore was unable to address his concerns or reply to him. Village President David Jaeckels assured Tock that he would be put on the agenda for the Aug. 22 meeting.

Trustee Jim Larson reported there was one building permit submitted in the past month.

Trustee Carrie Krahn told the board no liquor licenses were received in the past month.

The board unanimously approved extending a no-parking zone at Clark Street and Madison Avenue to increase visibility.

The village is still accepting donations to plant new trees in the village. Anyone wishing to make such a donation can contact the village office.

Trustee Steve Green reported that changes have been made to the village website. A volunteer is doing this work at no charge to the village. Further changes are in process.

The August village board meeting would normally be Tuesday, Aug. 14. Because that is Election Day, the board rescheduled next month’s meeting to Wednesday, Aug. 22. Meeting times remain the same: 6:30 p.m. for the water and sewer meeting; 7:30 p.m. for the Village Board meeting.

The board discussed junked vehicles. It was asked if such vehicles are allowable on a property if they are not visible from the road.

Trustee Gerald Hendrickson said, “It is illegal to have a junk yard, or a salvage yard, in the village limits of Cascade. That’s in the zoning ordinance.”

Further discussion supported Hendrickson’s statement. Jaeckels said no board action was required, that this was a matter to discuss and work out with the police.

Police report for the past month: No citations; 13 warnings (six dog license issues; seven junk vehicles); 10 property checks; 23 complaints investigated (background checks, dog licenses, audit of Agency by Training and Standards, abandoned/ unlicensed vehicles, unsecured business, car vs. deer accident, assist with missing person report, trespassing).
