Wausaukee Board To Reconsider Oct. 31 Halloween Trick Or Treat
Issue Date: October 21, 2020
Reconsideration of Halloween Trick or Treating from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31 is among items on a long agenda for the Wausaukee Village board meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21.
At its August meeting the board authorized traditional Trick or Treating from 1 to 4 p.m. and invited anyone wanting to participate to turn on their outside light. At that meeting, Village President Pat Tracy cast the sole opposing vote. As an item under new business for the Oct. 21 meeting, the board was being asked to reconsider.
As part of his President's Report, Tracy is expected to convey the happy news that the village will receive 60 percent forgiveness on its Safe Drinking Water Loan for the municipal well project. This means that 60 percent, up to a total of $500,000 of the overall project cost, will not have to be repaid, and discuss leaf and brush pickup to be done in the village through Friday, Oct. 23.
Agenda for the meeting also includes resolutions related to application for a $600,000 State Trust Fund Loan; purchasing agreement for the former Stephenson National Bank and Trust building, which is to be converted into a Community Center; amendments to the procurement policy; payment of bills, and naming official signators for banking transactions.
At the start of the meeting Kim Marsolek will be on hand to discuss Christmas in the Park decorating regulations on behalf of the Wausaukee Business Association.
The annual budget hearing for the village will be set for the third or fourth Tuesday in November.
Other items include quotes for pump controller work in the fire suppression buildings, possible 1 percent increase in the base sewer rate, amendments to the village fee schedule to become effective Jan. 1, life insurance for employees,
