Jan. 11, 2017 – West Bend, WI – During this week’s West Bend common council meeting Mayor Kraig Sadownikow read a proclamation declaring January 16-20, 2017 as Adult School Crossing Guard Recognition Week. There were a couple of crossing guards in attendance out of 16 that help safely guide students to school in the morning and get them home in the afternoon.
“West Bend is proud of our school crossing guards and commend them highly for their continued commitment to the safety and well-being of our children,” said Sadownikow.
“And tell that guy at the corner of Main and Decorah to put some pants on,” said Sadownikow referencing crossing guard Chucky Fellenz.
In other action during Monday’s meeting the council voted unanimously to hire Stephanie Justmann as its new clerk.
Justmann takes over from Amy Reuteman, who left at the end of December to take over the clerk’s position in Rome, Wisconsin.
Justmann’s salary was approved at $65,985. She will start the job January 23.
With that hire brings a vacancy at clerk in the Village of Kewaskum.
Village Administrator Matt Heiser said they’re currently accepting applications and said Justmann will be missed.
