Newly elected Mayor Dee Grimm was sworn in during the June 5 St. Hedwig City Council meeting. Returning members Susann Baker and David Rakowitz were also sworn in.
“I want to thank the council members and those of you here tonight for this nice welcome,” Grimm said. “I would also like to thank our city secretary, Barbara Pawelek, for all her hard work.”
In other business, the council tabled a discussion regarding a pending project to repave the streets on Lupon East, Gable, Gable North, Gable East, and Mergele Road, including a section of Mergele that extends into Wilson County.
“As I understand, there are a few wording issues with the bid proposal,” explained Baker. “We need to get that corrected and then we can have another special meeting with the engineers, then we can re-submit the bid out to the public.”
Councilman Walter Wyrwich reported on improvements to the St. Hedwig City Park. He said that a project to construct two walking bridges that would span two drainage areas of the park had been completed.
“We did receive some calls about the bridges in the park,” said Kathy Palmer, chairman of the St. Hedwig Planning and Zoning Commission. “I suggested to those folks to come to city council to discuss any questions they had or to utilize the Public Information Act to receive any information regarding the bids and construction of the bridges.”
The council changed the date of the next monthly meeting to July 10 to accommodate the Independence Day holiday. A public meeting is set for 7 p.m., prior to the regular meeting, to discuss the recommendations made by the Planning and Zoning Commission to the current city of St. Hedwig ordinance and zoning map.
Baker reported on the monthly crime statistics: “We had a total of 10 crimes reported. There was one report of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two burglaries of a habitation, five thefts, and two incidents of criminal mischief. These reports were from various places. It was pretty widespread,” she said.
