Posted recently to township message boards, the following is of note:
Alongside standard road items and patching is an “update on setting up a town website” given at the town meeting June 9, along with an “update and finalize Clerk’s internet.”
Nothing to report.
Along with regular items like the approval of the previous meeting minutes and presentations of treasurer’s and clerks reports, the Colburn meeting for July 6 was set to see public comment, act on license and permit requests, touch on the American Rescue Plan Act and ARPA funds, and also discuss the Wisconsin Broadband Grant Program, along with partnerships for expansion of said broadband. Other items included a road work discussion and update, review and approval of bills with payroll and receipts, scheduling of the next meeting, and adjournment. Colburn tends to meet the first week of the month at 7 p.m.
Nothing to report from the town hall postings.
Due to meet this July 12, the town board of Edson has received two license applications to sell Class “B” Fermented Malt Beverage and Intoxicating Liquor, one for Kutzees and the other for Stanley Bar and Bowl LLC. See page 8 for more.
With nothing of note posted on the door of the Gilman Senior Center or municipal board across the street, the Town of Ford holds meetings the third Tuesday of the month at 1:00 p.m.
Not strictly a meeting item, the recently posted hours for the Western Taylor County Library are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition, now through July 21st on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., a program called “Tails and Tales” will be held at the Gilman Park Pavilion.
The only item to report is that meetings are held on the second Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., along with a long running film plastic recycling program through the Taylor County Recycling Authority, with more information through the UW-Extension at 7125748-3327.
Nothing of note on the town message board, but the light above the walkway at the town hall has a new addition to the resident swallow nest, as a long-tube entryway made of hardened mud now protects the nest from birds of prey—strictly as an instinctual defense.
Over at Thorp, a meeting notice for the board of supervisors to meet and act on chip sealing June 25 is the only posting of note. Thorp generally meets the second week of the month for its regular board meeting.
Out at Wilson in Eau Claire County, a July 6 meeting at 7:00 p.m. was due to cover the treasurer’s report, road-related items, public comment, and payment of bills, alongside setting the date for the August meeting, with meetings generally held the second Tuesday of the month.
In addition at Wilson, the recycling drop off site next to the town hall is open on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to Noon, with household recyclables only. In case that’s unclear, ‘household recyclables’ refers to paper, cardboard, aluminum, tin, plastic bottles and jugs, and glass bottles and jars. The locks remain on the big dumpster otherwise and “illegal dumping will be prosecuted,” per a sign notice at the town hall and garage.
Down at Worden and posted alongside DNR permit requirements (mandatory) as well as Express Disposal recycling rates, is the news of an upcoming opportunity through the ADRC to learn Medicare Basics, covering in turn “Original Medicare,” Medicare Advantage Plans, Medigap plans, prescription drug coverage, and Medicare Savings Plans. Two opportunities are listed, the first on July 15 and the second on October 28, both at 1:00 p.m. at the Clark County Courthouse. Readers interested as such may register by calling 715-743-5166, with in-person and Zoom attendance both available.
