Wyanet approves agreement with township

WYANET — At a short meeting Tuesday night, the Wyanet Village Board approved the Intergovernmental Police Assistance Agreement with the township of Wyanet.

The agreement allows police personnel and equipment to provide assistance to the township as requested, in regards to weight limitation violations outside of the territorial limits of the village.

The village also approved an ordinance that will allow them to begin accepting bids on four of their older vehicles which have recently been replaced — a 1993 F250 with blade, a 1995 dump truck, a 2004 Chevy Impala squad car and a 1984 Blazer. More information can be found on the village’s website or by contacting village clerk Shelley Teske.

Village President Bruce Hand also said he received many calls during the recent snow storm regarding removal of snow by homeowners. The complaints are that people are pushing snow onto their neighbor’s properties. The village is looking into an ordinance forbidding the pushing of snow onto another person’s property.

Also, village engineer Jack Kusek is setting up a meeting with several water meter distributors to view the possibilities to replace current meters. New regulations will require all meters to be replaced.
