Permit approved for new business

Cadott Village Board

A new business is set to come to Cadott, after the Cadott Village Board approved a conditional use permit, during a regular meeting Dec. 2.

Sandy Buetow, village clerk, explained that anyone opening a business in a B-2 Highway Commercial District, must come before the board for a conditional use permit, according to village ordinances. Buetow said, during a public hearing on the issue, that none of the neighbors gave negative feedback. No other members of the public were on hand for the hearing.

“I think everybody wants to have something in that building,” said Anson Albarado, board president.

Nina Eisold plans to start a business selling cars from 121 W. Chippewa Street, in as soon as two weeks. Eisold has a taxi service in Chippewa Falls, and may start one in Cadott in the future, with a tentative start date for the services starting at the end of January. She says the taxi service is not handicap accessible, but hopes to expand the service to be accessible later.

“So, you’re going to have a mechanic on duty then?” asked Randy Kuehni, board member.

Eisold says there will be a mechanic for public use, as well as for the business.

Following the public hearing, board members approved the conditional use permit.

In other business, members voted in favor of the 2020 levy, and net mill rate. The levy was set at $2,037,916.55 and the mill rate at 0.02146621.

During a public hearing held on the proposed 2020 budget, Buetow broke down some of the main numbers.

“The net mill rate is a little lower than it was last year,” said Buetow.

Last year’s mill rate was $24.48 per thousand.

Board member Merle Huhn asked if the decrease was because of the property assessment. Buetow said the assessed values was one of the reasons for the decrease.

Members also approved the fourth pay request for the Community Development Block Grant Poplar Street project, for $73,806.79.

“The trees are planted, the grass is in place and the patches have been taken care of,” said Albarado.

Buetow also noted during correspondence, that the phone systems in the village office were successfully updated.
