Local News Briefs Monday 10/13/14


Voter ID


With legislatures continuing to battle in the courts over various laws, clerks across the state are caught in the middle trying to make sure everything stays up to date as election day approaches.  Fond du Lac County Clerk Lisa Freiberg says that on again off again laws like Voter ID means changes to paperwork, which takes time and money. Freiberg says with issues such as voter ID and same sex marriage laws constantly up in the air, they’ve had to deal with constant change.  Wisconsin Attorney General JB Van Hollen said last week that they are exploring the Supreme Court’s concerns over the Voter ID and hope to still have it on Election Day. 


County Health Dept Flu Clinics


Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says they are about half way through the health department’s scheduled flu vaccine clinics for the fall. (Monday) Today they will be at Ripon Senior Center from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. and at the health department offices in the City-County Government Center in Fond du Lac from 3 to 5 p.m. It’s $30 per dose and Medicare may pay for that. She says the vaccine will help ward off several types of flu viruses. More information about the flu clinics is available at the County’s website under the health department page.


NFDL Fire Dept Open House Monday


The public can get its look at the 28-year-old ladder truck North Fond du Lac officials are talking about replacing during an open house at the Municipal Building Monday (today). Village Administrator Chuck Hornung says residents can have a look at all the fire department’s equipment during the open house, which will be from 5 to 7 p.m.  He says it will cost more than $850,000 to replace the truck. Hornung says if they did decide to purchase a new ladder truck they would probably order it in January. He says it wouldn’t be delivered until about nine months into the year and they wouldn’t have to make their first payment until 2016.


Imagination Network Meets Tuesday


Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership Executive Director Amy Hansen says a monthly meeting of entrepreneurs is a good way to share ideas and make them become reality. The Imagination Network meets the second Tuesday of every month from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Elks Club in Fond du Lac. Hansen says there are a lot of good ideas out there. Tuesday Tom Pankratz, of Advanced Tooling Inc of Mt. Calvary; Julie Balson, of Gallery & Frame Shop of downtown Fond du Lac; and Mark Hopper, of Hopper’s Screen Printing and All Star Trophy of Fond du Lac, will be sharing how they got started, how they have grown, and what lessons they’ve learned. Imagination Network meetings are free and open to everyone in the area.
