Issue Date: January 17, 2018
Special presentations at the regular monthly Wausaukee Town Board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 9 included a presentation by Marinette County Administrator John LeFebvre on a possible grant for expansion of high speed Internet service in underserved areas of the county and a "State of the School" presentation by Wausaukee School District Administrator Bob Berndt, Junior High/Senior High Principal Jared Deschane, and Elementary Principal Katie Ambrose.
Town officials present for the meeting were Town Chair Jeff Engelmann; Supervisors Bob Jicha, David Tomasino, Kurt Stumbris, and Dennis Taylor; Treasurer Sally Hultquist and Clerk Cheryl Stumbris. Others on hand in addition to LeFebvre, Deschane, Ambrose and Berndt were Jack Zore, Bob Wesolowski, Chopper Dunlap, James Pociask, Fire Chief Eric Edlebeck and Maryanne Tomasino.
Vouchers were reviewed by all board members and approved for payment as presented.
Chief Edlebeck reported that the new Tanker would be delivered on Thursday or Friday, and the board agreed to have a check ready for time of delivery.
LeFebvre addressed the board about the county being contacted by a company interested in partnering with them to provide wireless broadband service throughout the county using towers and new technology. They are planning to apply for a state grant, and public expressions of support make it more likely that a grant application will be successful. LeFebvre was asking for an expression of support from the Town Board.
Main focus of the "State of the School" presentation was to inform the public of all aspects about "what is happening at Wausaukee School District including where we started, where we're at and what the future holds for our students and community," the board was told.
Engelmann noted the town had received a request to issue a proclamation regarding "School Choice Week," which is Sunday, Jan. 21 through Saturday, Jan. 27. After discussion the town board agreed not to issue a proclamation for "School Choice Week."
A Temporary Class B Liquor License was approved for Wausaukee Recreation Association and Temporary Operator's Licenses were approved for Greg Schroeder and Jared Deschane.
Clerk Stumbris read a letter from Maryanne Tomasino stating that she is resigning from Marinette County Association for Business and Industry, Inc. as a Wausaukee Town Representative effective January 9. The resignation was accepted without dissent.
