The Village of Star Prairie Board found itself short-handed at their meeting last Wednesday, July 11, with only three trustees in attendance. Trustees Christine Boardman, Dan Scheeringa and Craig Matthys addressed two letters of resignation, one anticipated and one unexpected.
The Hammond Village Board took advantage of an abbreviated agenda Monday night to enjoy a rare brief meeting. Following up on advice from Village Attorney Tim Scott, trustees unanimously agreed to demand that Computer Integration Technologies, Inc. (CIT) remove specific liability issues from their contract or risk losing the village's business.
By a 4-3 vote, New Richmond City Council Monday night, approved the "transfer" of 5.11 acres in Freedom Park to VFW Post 10818 New Richmond/St. Croix County for the tentative construction of the Freedom Park Center. In what has clearly been a struggle for council members since the Park Board's affirmative recommendation in May, reaching consensus on the land transfer remained elusive down to the final vote. "Tie vote. I support the VFW. I support our veterans. My vote is yes," said Mayor Fred Horne as he cast the deciding vote.
Hammond Village Board trustees revisited the IT discussion at their meeting Monday night, June 11, this time producing a different outcome. After reviewing proposals from Wipfli and LockNet, trustees approved a proposal from Computer Integration Technologies, Inc. (CIT) to provide IT services to the Village. Approval is contingent on a review of the contract language by village attorney Tim Scott.
A fire broke out Sunday morning, June 10, 2018, at 244 192nd St. in the Town of Alden, Polk County. The property, owned by David and Barb Grevich, was distinctive for the home fashioned out of a steel silo. Personnel and equipment from New Richmond Fire & Rescue and Allied Emergency Services (formerly DOG Fire) were the first to arrive on the scene. Somerset and Deer Park also provided equipment.
