A Letter from Chairman Schulteis
It’s hard to believe, but summer—as enjoyable and complete as it was—is now a memory and the refreshing fall air is upon us.
As I am writing this, the memory of 9-11-2001, yes fifteen years ago, comes rushing back and makes me wonder what has happened to us. The political environment is chaotic and we as a country are more divided than in recent memory. Why does it take a disaster like Pearl Harbor or 9/11, for us as a people, to get it together to think as “one” or “us” instead of “me”?
That being said, as your Chairman I could not be prouder of our local community. We have a “melting pot” of the best of everything right here; from the picturesque rural landscape, to the enviable lake properties, to our beginnings at the rural hamlet settings, or the subdivisions and estates nestled in the “up north” atmosphere, along with business and manufacturing sites along our major highway corridors that can take us to our destination in short order.
And the best part - the people - common sense, hardworking, respectful individuals. As questions come up, the office staff is diligent in finding an answer or a resource to resolve the issue. Some are simple, some more complex but most with an organized resolution. Over the past year we started an endeavor of open communication through this newsletter. It may be a work in progress but it has come a long way thanks to the Town Staff.
The Town office hours have changed to be more accommodating to fit work schedules. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday office hours are 7:30 am to noon, Tuesday hours are 2:30 to 7:00pm. All with the original intent of serving you, the people in the Town of Polk.
It won’t be long till the fall colors fade giving way to frosty air and snow. Take a deep breath, step back and enjoy it.
