Motion by Tr. Gilson, seconded by Tr. Hanke to approve the previous meeting’s minutes as dispensed by email. Motion carried.

Chief Mireski and Jenna Rhein presented the Board with information pertaining to Village employee life insurance. Currently, the Village provides some Village employees with $25,000 term life insurance through Farm Bureau Life. The entire premium is paid by the Village. After some research, Chief Mireski and Jenna Rhein were able to locate a new policy that would insure more employees, provide more coverage, and cost less than the current policy. The Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds would offer basic group life insurance and allow employees to purchase additional coverage at a cost to the employee. Motion by Tr. Gilson, seconded by Tr. Schraufnagel to adopt Resolution #878 inclusion under group life insurance for eligible Village employees through the Department of Employee Trust Funds. Motion carried.
The current life insurance offered to Village employees costs approximately $2,000 per year for ten $25,000 policies. The Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds life insurance would cost approximately $1,700 per year for fourteen policies. Each employee’s life insurance policy would be equal to his/her previous year’s wages. Motion by Tr. Bublitz, seconded by Tr. Schroeder to adopt Resolution #879 employer to pay entire premium of basic group life insurance for eligible Village employees through the Department of Employee Trust Funds. Motion carried.
Budget process recommendations were discussed. Each Village committee will meet with the corresponding department head to discuss the department’s budget in detail. Fire and Police Committee will meet with Chief Mireski. Streets and Utilities Committee and Rules and Regulations Committee will meet with Brian Koll. Employee Committee will meet with Jenna Rhein. President Schraufnagel and Jenna Rhein will attend all meetings. Once committees have met with department heads, they will present their numbers to the Board.
Brian Koll presented the Public Works monthly report. Leaf collection, brush chipping and yard waste pick-up are on Monday of each week. Tony Kappell of McMahon met with Brian Koll to discuss the trading pollution credit plan and wastewater plants and possibly develop a group of area municipalities to work together.
Chief Mireski presented the monthly Police report. The radar speed measurement trailer has been deployed in the Village. Anyone that feels there are speed issues on their street should contact the Police Department to see if the trailer can be deployed in their area.
