August 12, 2020
The village board of Cashton discussed the potential removal of the sidewalk on the SE side of Main Street during upcoming road projects at their last regular meeting, held on Wednesday, Aug. 5 and made the decision to present the choice to property owners in that area. In the event of a possible split decision among the property owners, the board will go ahead with the sidewalk removal.
The board briefly reviewed recycling pickup and decided to maintain the discontinuation of the service with plans to revisit the topic in January of 2021.
A discussion regarding winter street parking was held during the meeting with a motion to implement alternate side parking in residential areas from December 1 to April 1 being presented and voted on, however due to details not being completely ironed out, the motion was rescinded and the topic was tabled until the September meeting.
Public Works director, Dave Bekkum reported that an offer of $7,474 was received for the playground equipment that the board had previously decided to list on an auction site, however the board decided to cancel the auction listing and keep the equipment where it is for the time being.
The village is looking into potential repairs for the community hall building but will first have a structural engineer examine the building in order to assess its overall structural integrity before beginning any repairs or improvements. If that goes well, the next step would be to move forward with getting cost estimates for needed repairs.
In other news the village will be getting a new voting machine, the cost of which will be entirely covered by a Road to Recovery grant. Cost of the machine is $6,600 with a $1,000 start up ballot cost.
