A Letter from Chairman Schulteis

Thank You, Ted Merten

Growing up on a dairy farm about a mile west of Cedar Creek, it was second nature for him to take part in the local community in some form or another. With their farm stretching all the way east to what Joe Schwai referred to as the “center of Washington County” (the hamlet of Cedar Creek), Ted Merten grew up knowing the area, the people, along with the needs of the growing community.

During the following years, his involvement in the Town included participation in the Building Inspection team, Plan Commission and in the past 18 years, active participation in the Town Board. As of April 17, 2017, Ted has retired from that position, serving us, the people of the Town of Polk.

At this time we would like to welcome our newest member to the Town Board, Dennis Sang. Dennis has served the Town as

a member of the Plan Commission over the last years. His engineering background and common sense approach makes him a valuable asset to our team. We look forward working with you, Dennis.

Respectfully submitted,

Albert Schulteis
