Weekly News Blast: Tomorrow is our annual Tire Day and Choose to Reuse Event. The latter is a “free cycle” program. Bring any useable item that you can no longer use but you think someone else can (think free rummage sale). Tires of all sizes are accepted for a fee and there is no limit to the # of tires. Hopefully, everyone received a bright yellow postcard with the prices. Hope to see you tomorrow! Thanks are extended this week to Jerry Reinwand for completing road sweeping, Steve Dobeck who started grading, and Garry Saeger and Supervisor Doug Steltenpohl for partially completing the spring road inspections. The Spring newsletter was completed this week and sent to the printer. Expect one in your mailbox in a week or so. The Plan Commission met this week, finished its revisions to the Zoning Ordinance, and resumed work on the Sign Ordinance. Treasurer Greg Hakala reported that the Town received $2,294.89 from the 2023 Recycling Grant that Clerk Stefanie Schlapa recently completed. Everyone is keeping busy, that’s for sure… Enjoy the beautiful weather, Sharon

Weekly News Blast

It’s been a busy week in the Town of Grant. Road construction season is underway. According to Jim Wendels, P.E. for Quest Civil Engineers, LLC things are about 95% complete on Buena Vista Road (CTH F – 130th) with undercutting the section of muck followed by backfilling with sand (attached pic). The remaining undercut area is on the approach to 130th street. Base course will be placed starting next week along with culvert pipe installation. He estimates this project might be complete by June 1 including the finishing, clean up and landscaping. 

Supervisor Doug Steltenpohl ordered a quad of asphalt patch delivered to the town side yard. Our new concrete pad held up nicely (attached pic). Two ton of patch were laid this week on 90th Street but now our part-time public works employees can really get going without having to run into pick up patch. Doug will be conducting a spring road inspection with one or more employees. If there are problem areas that you are concerned about let him know by call or text at 715-213-0294.

We had our monthly board meeting on Wednesday. Clerk Stefanie Schlapa informed board members that 3 separate elections might need to be held if adequate signatures are obtained against the current board in a recall attempt. A primary election may also be needed depending on the number of candidates running in each recall election. The town budgeted for 4 elections in 2024 in the amount of $14,000. She has requested to keep an additional $14,000 handy in the event all recall petitions are returned. She also noted additional fees from the state and county to hold strictly local elections are currently unknown.

That’s the latest and greatest. Enjoy the weekend and if you celebrate Mother’s Day, I hope it is joyful. Sharon
