  • VILLAGE BOARD APPROVES RENEWED NECHODOM GOOD CITIZENSHIP AWARD

    By Tom Collins Reporter|

    Trustees unanimously approved criteria for the renewed Robert A. Nechodom Good Citizenship Award at their April 20 meeting. The criteria creates the framework and timing involving the award. “The meat and potatoes of this resolution is nominations will be accepted from Dec. 1 through Dec. 31 every calendar year,” Village Administrator James Fenlon said. The plan allows for the nomination committee to review the applications early the next year, then make a recommendation and provide the nominee’s name to the board for their first meeting in February. The approved nominee then is to be honored at the village’s annual employee appreciation event. Fenlon noted that setting would “...get a little more pomp and circumstance for the recipient.” The nomination process can be completed either online at the village’s web site or in forms available at the Village Hall. Both the forms and online source provide information and criteria regarding the award. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • QUINNEY SCHOOL CASHES IN 298 POUNDS OF CAN TABS Families at Electa Quinney School in Kaukauna continually bring can tabs to school and put them in a bin near the school’s lobby and that bin was emptied this week after it was filled to the top. Custodian Tom Carmody brought the tabs, that weighed 298 pounds, to Goldin Iron & Recycling in Kaukauna. They earned the school $104.30, but Goldin matched the amount for a $208.60 total. However, it still has one more stop at Thrivent Financial to be doubled again. All money raised goes to the Ronald McDonald House in Milwaukee. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • FOX RIVER NAVIGATIONAL SYSTEM AUTHORITY DEALING WITH ROUND GOBIES

    By Judy Dixon Hebbe For the Times-Villager|

    There are 198 invasive species of fish, invertebrates and plants in the Great Lakes and this year one of them, the round goby, was found in Little Lake Butte de Morts and caused the Department of Natural Resources to order the Fox River Navigational System Authority, which controls the locks system between Menasha and Green Bay, to close the locks at Menasha. The closure is an attempt to prevent the fish from entering Lake Winnebago and invading the Fox and Wolf river systems. Both the DNR and the FRNSA are conducting studies within Lake Winnebago to determine whether or not the fish is in the lake. FRNSA hired Lawrence University to conduct the survey for them. Until the studies are complete, it cannot be determined whether the fish came up the Fox River from Green Bay or into Little Lake Butte de Morts through the spillways in Neenah and Menasha. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • FEDERAL GRANT APPLICATION MAY HELP CITY WITH VETERANS MEMORIAL BRIDGE COSTS

    By Tom Collins Reporter|

    The Kaukauna Board of Public Works approved the next step in getting possible funding to get the Veterans Memorial Bridge lift mechanism operational. “We estimated the cost, without engineering, at $1,368,000,” City Engineer and Public Works Director John Sundelius explained. “The STP urban agreement we were able to secure is $880,000. There is still a significant share. That’s $488,000.” Sundelius reminded board members about the U.S. Coast Guard order to make the lift bridge operational in order to meet the coming needs of the revised lock system. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • CITY OF KAUKAUNA DEVELOPING NEW MUNICIPAL WEBSITE

    By Brian Roebke Editor|

    One of the things on Finance Director Will Van Rossum’s “to do list” when he was hired was to organize and update of the City of Kaukauna’s website. Work on that website is underway and Van Rossum gave a report to the common council on Tuesday evening. Ironically, he recently attended a conference that included things that residents “hit on” when the city made a post on their Facebook page asking residents what they are looking for. “I think we’re headed in the right direction,” he told the council. “We’re not quite there yet but at least we’re thinking about it.” He brought the council to the changes in society through the generations, from the silent generation to the Generation Zs. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
