NEW BREMEN — A local village is now under a water use advisory, and one of its summer festivals is set to be affected.
During Tuesday night’s New Bremen Village Council meeting, Village Administrator Wayne York noted the village is about where it was this time last year with its water availability — on the borderline — and an event on Monday didn’t help things.
“At one of our water wells, we had a transformer that failed that we had to replace in the same day,” York said.
NEW KNOXVILLE — Village councilors are looking to protect the financial future of New Knoxville with the passage of the first reading of two ordinances Tuesday night at their village council meeting.
The first ordinance, a cash reserve policy, defined how much money the village should keep in its reserve.
“It just puts into words a policy about how much we should keep on reserve,” New Knoxville Fiscal Officer Janet Beall said.
Council President Mark Howe touted the policy as beneficial to the village.
