Coleman Board Tables RR Road Name ChangeIssue Date: June 6, 2019
A public hearing on a possible CDBG grant application to aid in development of a cheese factory in Coleman had been expected to precede the Coleman Village Board's regular monthly meeting on Monday, June 3 but then was postponed to precede the July Village Board meeting. Site off Hwy. 141 on which the factory is planned to be built has already been annexed by the village.
Monday's board meeting was called to order at 6 p.m. by President Glenn Woulf. Trustees present were Jesse Parker, Jeff Gosa, Sr., Tim Gould, Chad Mursau, Dave Podoski, and Jodi Karas. Trustee Nancy Stank was absent.
Also at the meeting were Public Works Director Dennis Gross,Thad Majkowski of Cedar Corp., Ken Holdorf, Franny Makos, Cal Makos, Marlene Rysewyk, Dean Rysewyk, and Edward Edward Heisel.
On behalf of Cedar Corp, Majkowski presented the village with a $500 donation toward purchase of playground equipment for parks in the village.
The meeting agenda had allowed for discussion and possible approval of a road name change, which would have affected RR Road. Several concerned area residents were at the meeting to state their concerns.. Two of their main concerns were the expense and hassle of address changes and the fact that the current road name is important to the families for which the road was originally named. After further discussion, the board in a unanimous roll call vote approved a motion to table the proposed road name change. RR Road will continue to have that name and residents will continue to have their current addresses unless further action is taken at a future meeting.
The village expressed thanks to Wal-Mart for a $500 grant to the Coleman Police Department to aid in meeting equipment needs for the new Police squad car.
The board was advised that R&A Manufacturing has recently changed its name to Freedon Metals, Inc. due to an ownership change, and will continue to operate at the current location.
Gross reported the Meadowwood/ Mac Arthur project will begin in July. Plans are to have it completed by mid September.
Parks Committee Chair Tim Gould reported that the parks are getting the ground ready for summer use. The "Discovery Through Play" project is underway. Playground equipment was to be delivered on Tuesday, June 4, with assembly to be done by Village employees with the help of some volunteers.
