WHAT WE KNOW: The village's wooden flagpole in the southeast corner of the state-owned park that dates to the late 1800s has deteriorated to the point it needs replacement. Village clerk Terri Wigant said she was told this type of flagpole is only seen on the coasts.
WHAT'S NEW: The village board thought an initial estimate was too high, so it went back for other alternatives. They got a price on a different style flagpole that would be one solid pole unlike the existing pole in sections. Mayor Mike Funke said he would like to use what is historically correct. Trustee Ben Strand made a motion that was approved to look for a grant.
WHAT'S NEXT: The village will need a new contractor for the proposed restroom in the old town hall as the former one withdrew from the project, and they also need to work on a new lease to rent it out, reflecting the future availability of the restroom. The most recent lease rate was $225. Someone recently called treasurer Sharon Wexell interested in renting it. The board tabled the matter, pending determining if there is a way to heat the crawl space where the water lines are in winter.
