Trustee Walgenbach reported he plans to have a Public Works Committee meeting in the near future.
Police Chief, Tom Dornbrook, provided January and February reports to Trustees. Dornbrook reported on the following items: Equipment grant; drunk driving case; interest in the reserve police officer position.
Old Business (Agenda item #3): Dornbrook inquired if all Trustees received the email he sent out after the last Board meeting regarding sex offenders. Village ordinances cannot be more restrictive than state statutes. Nothing further can be done on this issue.
Old Business (Agenda item #1): Krohn had no updates regarding the Village’s request for the County to re-route County RoadT. President Tarr reported he was able to speak with the Highway Commissioner at the Dept of Transportation meeting at Village Hall on March 9th. There did not appear to be any interest in making changes to this part of the County.
Old Business (Agenda item #2): Trustees in attendance at February’s meeting updated those that were absent on discussion that took place regarding the possibility of reconsidering a chicken ordinance. Trustees would like to have another vote before having Attorney Wurtz spend any more time and money on addressing the possible changes to his sample ordinance. Motion by Walgenbach/Shoffner to approve sample ordinance with a change to the setback requirement to be 50 feet. Motion failed due to tie with aye votes from Shoffner, Tarr, Walgenbach and nay votes from Krohn, Smit, Vollbrecht. The Frank’s asked the Board to reconsider their request next month.
No other business came before the Board. On a motion by Krohn/Smit, unanimously passed on a voice vote, the Board adjourned at 7:39 p.m.
