Genoway presents city council members with grant opportunities
|At Tuesday's Common City Council meeting, Economic Development Specialist Steve Genoway requested Dodgeville council's approval for two grant opportunities. The first grant will be used to support costs of professional services for planning and developing of 74 acres of city-owned land for economic development. Tools will be implemented to help in land marketing purposes for businesses and help the City plan for infrastructure needs.|
The second grant will be used to enhance marketing efforts for 2019, and for professional content development. Council members approved to accept Genoway submitting applications, on the city's behalf, for these two grants.
Dodgeville's Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Beth Milkrut-Gilles addressed council members and extended many thanks for the City of Dodgeville's support with the many events that came back into town. Events included the Girls Softball tournament, and DodgeFest.
"It was a pleasure working with all of you, and I look forward to bigger and better things happening in Dodgeville for 2019," Gilles said.
Council members reciprocated the thanks for the Chamber's hard work in bringing the events back to the City of Dodgeville.
Next area of discussion came with a Phosphorus update. This update was given by Evan Chambers through Town and Country Engineering based out of Madison. To summarize, Chambers informed council members of options to help with meeting optimal phosphorus levels. Recommendations to get there included potentially partaking in watershed projects as they are more cost effective, but they take a large amount of time. The option recommended when going forward is to do a variance which gives the city approximately five to 10 years to find these types of projects and to do water quality training. With this being an update, no action was taken by council.
City Clerk Treasurer Lisa Riley informed council members of City Hall's hours during the holidays: City Hall is closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day. Tax payments can still be made by placing them in the city's utility mailbox.
Riley also reminded council members that election deadlines are Wednesday January 2 at 5:00 p.m. City Park Reservations also begin at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday January 2.
Riley also announced that Dodgeville High School teens are in competition for the "Message for Teens" competition. This is a campaign through Fox 47 network, and Riley encouraged council members to spread the word and cast their votes.
