Sign may soon point passerby to area attractions

Cadott Village Board

Passerby may soon be pointed toward Cadott’s business district, if a sign is approved for the corner of State Hwy.

27 and Mill Street. The issue was discussed at a regular Cadott Village Board meeting, March 2.

Brian Dulmes spoke on behalf of the Cadott Lions Club, when he inquired if the club could pay for a sign to be installed. The sign would direct traffic toward the business district, parking and Hole 1 for the disc golf course, the Lions pavilion and East Riverview Park. Dulmes estimated the sign would be about 4 feet tall and 8 feet wide.

“Does that require state approval, because it is by 27?” asked board member Bart Chapek.

Randy Kuehni, board member, noted the height of signs was a concern of the state for signs at businesses along State Hwy. 27.

“I think it is a great idea,” said Chapek. “We just need to figure out who needs to approve it.”

Dulmes also said a Lions member brought up that the dam house appears to be in need of some repairs and sprucing up. He questioned if the village does repairs and said the Lions club would be interested in helping.

Board president Anson Albarado asked if sprucing up the dam house happened once before. Rolly Tichy, public works, said there had been talk of updating the building before.

Tichy said the DNR controls the dam house and said they would have to check if they can fix the house without DNR permission.

Albarado told Dulmes the village would get back to him on both issues, once they get more information.

In other business, members approved ordinance changes, as recommended by Cedar Corp. and the Ordinance Committee. The potential changes had been discussed at a previous meeting. Chapek noted that many of the fee changes were switched to a percentage, instead of a set price, and will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

The board also approved the surrender of a Class B Intoxicating Liquor and Fermented Malt Beverage License from Frank and Richard Kyes to Todd Rykal, Luke Rykal and Tony Roscoe, for Whispering Pines Golf Course.

Roscoe informed the board he and the Rykals are in the process of purchasing the golf course. The surrender is contingent on the sale going through. Roscoe also showed board members a preliminary view of the new layout for the build- ing.

As a notice to the public, the March 16 regular board meeting was moved to March 23, at 6:30 p.m.

Chapek also asked if a section could be included on future agendas for a public works report. Other members agreed that sounds like a good idea.
