FDL City Council Preview


The Fond du Lac City Council will be asked tonight to approve Industrial Revenue Bonds for a blighted property in the Southwest Industrial Park and contracts with two employees unions.  Schmidt Capital Investments will use the $2.5 million in I-R-B’s to purchase the blighted property, which is next door to them in the park, and do an expansion project. The Council will also consider approving contracts with City police and firefighters unions. The meeting is at 6 p.m. at the City-County Government Center in Fond du Lac.         


FDL County Board Updated On Expanding Wireless Internet


The Fond du Lac County Board recently got an update on the progress of an effort to expand high speed wireless internet in rural parts of the County. Officials from Bug Tussel Wireless gave the update saying they have gotten six leases signed with different townships and are getting the necessary zoning approvals and ordering equipment. The County approved a $3.2 million loan to the company to build twelve towers and lease space from the County on two more. Company officials were looking at a two-year project that is supposed to be completed next year.


Student Group Takes A STAAND


An official with the Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County says a student group is making an impact in trying to reduce underage drinking. Janet Lloyd says the students with chapters of Students Taking Action Against Negative Decisions of STAAND in Fond du Lac, North Fond du Lac and Campbellsport are creating awareness. She says the group in Fond du Lac went one step further finding out there was a zoning ordinance that prohibits using more than 25 percent of window space in a business to advertise products like alcohol and tobacco. She says they found places that weren’t in compliance, went before the City Council and worked to reduce the amount of alcohol and other advertising.    


Holiday Cooking Tip Don’t Wash The Bird


Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says she was aware of the usual cooking tips when it comes to holiday meals, but one surprised her a bit. She says you should keep your raw meats separate from vegetables, clean your hands frequently, cook your turkey or meat to the right temperature and chill the leftovers quickly. One thing she wasn’t aware of is that you are not supposed to wash off your meat or turkey before you cook it.


One-Car Accident

The slick roads on Monday caused a one car roll-over on Highway 41 south, just south of Highway 23 on Monday morning.  The Wisconsin State Patrol says a vehicle was traveling south when it lost control and went into the median and started to roll, struck a cable barrier and continued to roll onto the northbound lanes.  The vehicle came to rest on its room in the middle of the right lane.  The driver was taken to St. Agnes Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.


Trash And Recycling Reminder


With no trash or recycling collection in Fond du Lac on Thanksgiving the public works department is asking residents to place their refuse and recycling out tomorrow if they normally have it collected on Thursdays and for those who normally have it collected on Fridays next Monday. It will be picked up along with the trash and recyclables normally collected on those days. Please have it out by 5 a.m. Most of the City’s offices and services will be closed or unavailable this Thursday and Friday. The lone exception is the library, which will be open this Friday.

Did anyone see the raises they are giving to the city police? 3% 3% and 3.25% over 3 years thats 9.25%. How many employers in Fond du Lac will ever give a raise like that in this economy? I guess we need to pay them more and have fewer services to balance the budget.

Do your research they are also paying their pension which is about 7 percent so they are only really getting a 2.25 percent increase over 3 years.
