Greetings from your Village President
The future of Coon Valley is bright!! In January of this year the Village refinanced a Trust Fund Loan which consisted of a combination of loans taken out over the last 13 years. Interest rates on these loans were anywhere from 4 – 6% over a 5 to 20 year period with a debt of $1,080,080.00. We refinanced these loans at an interest rate of 3% for 10 years with River Bank in Coon Valley. By March of 2015 we will have paid off around $370,000.00 on this loan. This refinancing will save the Village approximately $160,000.00.
Work has begun on the 2014 Budget. Our board and individual committees are always mindful of our fiscal responsibilities and try to make plans for the future that best serve the greater population. No large construction projects are planned for 2014. Future plans may include more sewer and water work on Anderson Street for 2015.
The Village now has a website – www.villageofcoonvalley.com. Please check this site often for current news and information.
As fall approaches and leaves start to fall remember not to rake your yard waste into the gutters. All lawn debris should be taken to the yard waste site located on Jack Berg Lane. Remember – this site is for yard waste only – no garbage or construction waste.
In the very near future, the winter season will be upon us. Please read “Reminders from the Village Public Works Department”. Off street parking is strongly encouraged once we start getting snow. This makes it easier for the Public Works department to plow the streets and cuts down on the time they need to plow.
This Village would not be the wonderful place it is to live if not for the many people that help keep it running. I wish to thank the many volunteers that helped keep the park beautiful throughout the summer. I also wish to thank the Village Board of Trustees for their hard work throughout the year. Our board works as a team always making decisions for the Village keeping your best interest in mind. Special acknowledgment goes to the Public Works department for their dedication throughout the year. And certainly I want to give a very special thanks to our Volunteer Fire Department and our Emergency Management Team along with Police Chief Jay Engelhart for keeping our Village safe. Keep up the good work and CARRY ON!!
Rick Stegen, Village President “Proud to Serve Coon Valley”
