JACKSON CENTER — Also at the Jackson Center Village Council meeting Monday night, the council read and passed an ordinance executing a mutual aid agreement with national participating municipalities with municipal electrical systems, in order to be able to receive and provide mutual assistance during times of emergencies through the interchange and use of personnel and equipment.

The village already has this agreement state-wide, this just expands it to the national level, in-case something terrible were to happen, Village Administrator Bruce Metz said.

It was reported April’s finances were positive. Income was almost $26,000 more than expenditures, and the year to date revenue for the village is about $234,000 over expenditures.

The council also adopted an ordinance moving around some money in the annual appropriations. The money it to help with the engineering costs of Project Bambi, which were not previously planned for. Project Bambi is the street enhancement work that will happen on Airstream Drive.

The council also reviewed a liquor license transfers for Cafe Verandah from the previous owners to the new owners. They voted not to request a public hearing.

The village council’s next meeting will be June 13, at 7 p.m.
