Village Sets Clean Up Day, Hire 2 Workers
Brush pickup days, clean up day, hiring of two part-time seasonal workers, municipal court, parking request and retailer license were among items of business when the Wausaukee Village Board met Wednesday, April 16. Absent was Trustee Rosie Figas and Clerk Toshia Ranallo was excused.
Also in attendance were Darryll Schmidt, Pam Heritsch and Paul Fick.
Paul Fick requested parking on the street during winter months for his tenants at 409 Church Street. He explained his house was built in 1953 without a driveway. Previously, there was a verbal agreement between him and the Village Board that his tenants were able to park on the street during winter months. The Board determined to discuss the subject at the next Street Committee meeting and create a plan for the entire village before next winter.
Accepted was the Personnel Committee recommendation for a temporary, part-time workers. Hired were Mike Gavigan and James Unger at a wage of $8.50 per hour. Both seasonal positions will end after the October Fall Festival on Oct. 6.
