Testing and maintenance approved for substation

Cadott Village Board

Annual maintenance for Cadott’s substation is back on track, after Cadott Village Board members approved a maintenance quote from Energis, during a regular meeting, Jan. 20.

“Is this the stuff we did before where we found a problem?” asked Russ Falkenberg, board member.

Clerk Sandy Buetow said it is, and that the maintenance and testing is supposed to be done yearly.

Board member Bart Chapek asked if the tests were still needed, even though work was recently done on the substation. Buetow confirmed the maintenance is still needed.

Members approved the yearly testing and maintenance by Energis, for $4,470.

“Doing this goes a long way toward heading off an outage,” said Falkenberg.

Members also voted in favor of amending an update to an ordinance on the R-2 zoning district, to reflect the correct ordinance number.

In the reports section of the meeting, Chapek reported the fire and ambulance boards met. He says the fire truck is still on order, and the group has paid for the chassis and have not yet borrowed for the remainder of the cost.

Chapek reported the ambulance board is forming plans to buy a new ambulance sooner, rather than later.

“I guess we’ll see where that goes at this point,” said Chapek, adding they would like a nicer ambulance and possibly a spare.

Randy Kuehni, board member, says it sounds like the current ambulance has needed a lot of maintenance recently.

As a reminder to the public, sidewalks should be cleared of snow within 24 hours of the snowfall, as specified in the village ordinance.
