Council seat still open
No applications received in Clintonville
By Bert Lehman
A seat on the Clintonville City Council remains vacant.
The city has not received any applications to fill the District 2 seat that was vacated when Alderman Darrell Teall moved out of the area.
Clintonville Mayor Lois Bressette asked the council at its Oct. 11 meeting if it wanted to leave the seat vacant, or extend the application deadline.
Alderman Steve Kettenhoven said he would like the city to continue to solicit applications for the vacant seat.
“I would like to see the same as well,” said Alderman Brad Rokus. “I don’t think it would be right to shut other people out who would want to take part in our government.”
Alderman Mark Doornink pointed out that who ever fills the seat will fulfill the remaining portion of Teall’s term, which ends in April 2017. Teall’s replacement would have the option to participate in the spring general election.
The council approved accepting applications for the vacant council seat for at least one more month.
Citizens living within District 2 and interested in being appointed to the Council must submit an Application for Appointment. Applications are available on the city’s web site or at Clintonville City Hall. Bressette will be accepting applications until 4:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 14. Applications can be dropped off or mailed to Clintonville City Hall, 50 10th Street, by the deadline.
For a map of the District, contact City Hall or go to www.clintonvillewi.org.
The appointment will be considered by the members of the City Council during the November council meeting.
Questions can be directed to Clintonville City Hall at 715-823-7600.
Maize Street update
The council was informed that the Maize Street reconstruction project was almost complete. Before the street could be paved, some minor restoration work needed to be made to yards along the street. The yard restoration work was done prior to the street being paved to avoid having heavy equipment needed for the yard restoration, driving on newly laid asphalt.
