News & Notes Spring 2017

From the Administrator

It’s great to see a couple people out mowing the high spots on their lawns, others mowing around the water standing in areas of the lawn from all the rain we have been having. At least the warm weather and wind seems to be drying out the wet areas.

To start, I would like to recognize staff anniversaries and new hires:

Anniversaries: Eric Butler – EMS Paramedic – 5 Years

New Hires: Alicia Foster – Municipal Court

Some updates on projects.

 The handicap door assists have been installed at the Village offices and Community Center. The final electrical work should be completed in the next few weeks.

 Final preliminary engineering should be completed in the next couple of weeks for the reconstruction projects for the north end of Minnesota Avenue and the south end of Indiana Avenue. The actual construction should start mid summer.

 The pavilion at LeMieux Park is going to be replaced this summer. The concrete under the pavilion is cracked and raised in certain areas. The pavilion is showing its age with the support posts needing replacement. The plans are to wait until later in the summer after most of the park activity is over to not disrupt any summer plans. The new structure will be placed in the same place as the existing structure.

 After the major upgrade to the Village Pool last year, a couple more upgrades are planned for this year. The DPW staff is working on replacing items in the bath house that have been in need of replacement. A new shade structure will be installed in the Northwest corner of the pool area. The plan is to start some of the landscaping.

 The Master Gardner’s will be touching up the Yellowstone Trail Park, filling the flower pots at the Community Center, planting flowers and grasses at the Veteran’s Memorial, and starting work on the southwest corner of Winnebago St. and Prospect Avenue.

The EMS Department staff has been researching starting an inter-facility transport service. The service would utilize the backup ambulance and staff it for twelve hours a day, five days a week. The Village Board and the neighboring townships we serve agreed to a six month trial period. A lot of work and planning was done by several of the EMT’s. An operations plan, marketing and staff recruiting are some of the activities presented to the board and townships for approval. The goal is to start the service around the first of July.

Have a great Spring.
