GLENBEULAH — The 2017 Village Budget was approved by the Village Board at its monthly board meeting Wednesday night.
A resident inquired about crosswalks being painted. The Village Board felt painting crosswalks was an unnecessary cost and decided not to move forward with painting.
Alleys will not be paved or repaired by the village, the board decided.
The Village Board also discussed residents blowing leafs and grass clippings into the streets. Members of the board are concerned the leafs and grass clippings will clug the storm drain and will cost the village to clean them out. The board requested residents do not place leafs or grass clippings in the street as there is no leaf pick-up operations.
The Board approved the purchase of tires for the village pick-up truck. The truck, which is a 2009 model, has 12,000 miles and the tires need to be replaced.
Pursuant to Wisconsin State Statutes, municipal clerks or board designees are entitled to receive compensation in the amount of 50 cents for each dog listed in the village. 113 dogs were listed in the Village for Glenbeuah for 2016. The village will receive $56.50 in compensation. In 2015, there were 110 dogs listed.
The Village Board approved an agreement for EMS service with the Town of Greenbush. Glenbuelah First Responders will continue to provide first responder services to Greenbush.
