Commissioner Advises Parallel Parking TRY NEW SIREN In a regular meeting of the Village Board, Monday, June 3th, members voted to try a new siren. This would be a larger one than is presently being used. The one in use now is 2 h. p. and the one to be tried is 7 h. p. It was suggested that perhaps if the new one doesn't carry well, the smaller siren could be installed in another area and used in addi- tion to the larger siren. PARELLEL PARKING The Wisconsin Rapids District Commissioner of Highways met with Mr. Beach and Mr. Hempel last week. He suggested that tiie Board carefully consider chang- ing parking on Mill Street from angle parking to parallel parking. It was pointed out that this will probably have to be done at a later date, if it is not done at this time. The commissioner suggest- ed that one hour parking could be enforced to ease the parking sit- uation on the street. He stressed the fact that the street is actually too narrow for angle parking and that it is necessary for the driver to back over the center line when pullingout of the parking place. This is a violation of state traffic law. Also, in the angle parking situation it is difficult for the dri- ver to see oncoming cars until he has backed onto the highway. Since this involves a change in Ordinance 107, the Board mem- bers decided that definite action would not be taken until public reaction to the change could be noted. The commissioner also suggested that a left turn stop sign be installed at Egbert Garage corner. TO BE BORROWED A resolution was passed to bor- row 000 from the State Bank of Green Lake for paymtntson the water system. The loan will be paid by 1964 in five install- ment! of each year at 4 percent tnttWM per annum. This action was necessary because one-third of the village people chose the five year plan in pay- ing the frontage assessments which resulted in an insufficient amount of money for present needs. NO DECISION ON POLICE RADIO No definite decision was made on the two way radios for the Vil- lage police department. The membersof the Board are check- ing on various radios which arc being considered as possible pur- chases. The Board passed the recom- mendation that the committee on the fire engine and the new fire fighting equipment draw up the specifications so that advertise- ments for bids can be issued. AMBER LIGHT FOR PARK The Park Board has contacted the State Highway Commission and are waiting the approval by the commission of the installa- tion of a flashing amber light at the Hattie Sherwood Park cross- walk to be manually opera- ted when the beach is in use. The resignation of Loy Burling from the Park Board was accepted by the Board and the appointment of Frances Ptacek to the Park Board was approved. Mr. Burling re- quested that the Board accept his resignation because he is no lon- ger a resident of the Village and he felt that the position should be held by someone within the Village. LIGHTS FOR FOREST AVENUE The materials for the street lights on Forest Avenue are here with the exception of the controls which are due on June 22nd. It will be approximately ten days after the arrival of the controls that the lights will be turned on.
