A Village of Spring Valley procedural change enacted in 2015 requiring receipts for purchases made with a village credit card resulted Monday, Sept. 11 in felony charges against a recently resigned Pierce County deputy. Robby Joel Jaeger, 35, who worked as a Spring Valley police officer until November 2012, was charged with felony theft as well as unauthorized use of a Village of Spring Valley credit card, according to a criminal complaint filed in Pierce County Circuit Court.
St. Croix County Ellen Denzer, St. Croix County Community Development director, told members of the newly-minted water quality study group they are to be in for quite a ride over the coming months. "This is going to be a rapid education," she said. "Even 10 years ago, farming was quite a bit different than it is today. It's changing quite rapidly."
