A Letter from Chairman Schulteis
With Thanksgiving (and Deer Hunting) just behind us, December and all its activities will rush by before we know it. Take time to savor friendships, old and new, and acknowledge individuals that go above and beyond to make your lives better.
On that note, I would like to thank our office staff, Diana Degnitz, Clerk; Tracy Groth, Treasurer and Zoning Secretary; and recently hired intern, Clare Groth, for the professional and respectful handling of the day to day functions at our Town office.
Then there are citizen members that put in long days serving us on election day; small job but most important. Thank you for your service.
To Roy Wenninger, for the conscientious operation of the Highway Department which includes operation and maintenance of the department equipment, keeping ditch and roadways unobstructed, plus his respectful demeanor when citizens have questions concerning road issues. The local “historian” Micheal Schuetz, mans the recycling center Saturday mornings.
We have the Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals members making the hard calls on Ordinance questions. These much appreciated individuals are citizen members serving the Town.
Rounding it out is the team of inspectors, John Frey, Building; Bob Brinkman Electrical; and Scott Clow, Plumbing, enforcing the safety standards adopted to ensure our quality of living habitats we call our homes and businesses.
Last but not least is an individual that has earned our respect with his positive demeanor in resolving issues when we need enforcement of Ordinances. Officer Jerod Cox has been the liaison from Washington County Sheriff’s Dept. for the past couple of years to the Town and has been an inspiration as the type of person we would expect from someone in his position. Thank you Officer Cox.
And you thought this was just “the Town”. No, we are a special group of people serving “us”, the Town of Polk. Thank you to all for your service to us.
