VETERAN'S MEMORIAL
´╗┐BEAUTIFICATION

Thanks to Master Gardeners Kathy Zaffrann and Kathy Kalterbach plus Fire Department volunteers for maintaining the plantings around the Veterans Memorial wall.

The Town Parks and Recreation Committee, with assistance from the Department of Public Works, was responsible for the new fencing along School Road, installation of underground irrigation in the grass area around the memorial wall between Highways 70 and 155, and some turf improvement in the same area. While the beautification project is still in progress, the area of the highways intersection is reflecting the hard work of many people who have been inspired by Master Gardeners Kathy and Kathy.
MORE FUNDING FOR THE TOWN'S
FIBER OPTIC PROJECT

The Town has received the first half of a $225,000 COVID-19 Stimulus Package (American Rescue Plan) payment. The second half will be paid during 2022.

Both portions of the stimulus payment will be used to offset costs to install fiber optic cable to every residence, business and vacant land parcel in St. Germain. This stimulus payment combined with the $600,000 stimulus payment previously received reduces the amount of the $1.2 million fiber optic project for which the Town will borrow funds to $375,000. And because much of the stimulus funding has already been received, further savings will be realized by postponing the relatively small bank loan that will eventually be needed.

Installation of the cable suffered some interruptions this spring due to delayed deliveries of supplies, but is now underway in the downtown area. Completion of the project is still projected for two to three years from now. The Town Board will provide periodic updates as the project progresses.
