Five appointed to Kimberly Library Board

Judy Dixon Hebbe

Four citizen members and a trustee appointments to the Kimberly Library Board were approved at a recent meeting of the Kimberly Village Board.

Corrine Herro and Trustee Dave Hietpas were appointed to two-year terms expiring May 2022. Phil Yunk, representing the Kimberly School District, and Rose Vander Velden were elected to three-year terms expiring May 2023 and Barbara Wentzel was appointed to a four-year term expiring May 2024. Replacements will hereafter be appointed to three-year terms, except for a trustee, which is limited to the two-year term the trustee serves on the village board.

The purchase of a decommissioned 2015 Ford Explorer for $6,500 from the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department was approved. The vehicle will be used for transporting training materials for drill nights, transporting equipment after fire calls, and for transporting the water rescue boat and equipment for training and emergencies on the Fox River.

Trustees agreed to move ahead on the refinancing of taxable general obligation refunding bonds following a report by Baird Director Justin A. Fischer. The bonds are for tax incremental financing district #5 and the village board will take up the award resolution at the Aug. 3 meeting. The refinancing is estimated to save $22,930 for the village.

Trustees reviewed proposed changes relating to nuisance in property maintenance ordinances. The changes deal with addressing unmaintained structures. Director of Operations Allyn Dannhoff will present the final draft at the next village board meeting.
