APPOINTMENT OF REPLACEMENT SUPERVISOR

After an unavoidable delay the Town Board, late last week, was able to meet and finish the interviews for the replacement of Supervisor Tom Huetter.

The Board would like to thank all the participants. Any one of which would have made a good addition and served the community well. We unfortunately had to select one based on criteria that we had established for the selection.

The person selected by the Board was Brandon Holewinski. Mr. Holewinski will be sworn in before the October 13th normal Town Board meeting.

Again the Board would like to Thank the other participants: Brian Verheyden, Stan Kaczmarek, Jim Pyle, Renee Holewinski, Helen Wagner and Brad Naparalla.

Supervisor Huetter’s Last Meeting

Last night’s Town Board meeting was Supervisor Tom Huetter’s last meeting. The room was happy for Tom and his wife Betty as they enter this new phase of their lives, wishing them all the best, but also sad to see them go.

Tom was presented with a Town Board Resolution acknowledging his 40 years worth of contributions and a memorial clock to help him remember his time here.

The Town wishes them all the best.

Veteran Cemetery Cleanup

A special thanks is due to several people for the work done in the Pittsfield Cemetery. A group has worked hard to clean and straighten veteran headstones. Many of these stones had to be raised, cleaned, and straightened.  This group led by Mike Sheedy included veterans, students, and other caring citizens.

Their work in the cemetery to honor the contributions of these veterans has been incredible. You will see by the attached photos the fruits of their work. This group has also been placing flags in the cemetery over the past years.

Please join the Town in a special thanks specifically to: Mike Sheedy, Sarah Hockers-Schmoll, Brian Harrison, Ken Oldenburg, and Mark Baudhuin

Talking Snow, In August????

Yes, it is time to talk about winter snow removal.

The Town has put out a request to parties that would be interested in providing snow plowing and removal services for the Town’s roadways and facilities. The Town Board will consider the information provided by interested parties at the October Town Board meeting.

Interested parties can download the request documents at the following links.

Be advised the Town considers snow removal as a professional service and the Town reserves the right to contract with that service provider which they feel will provide the Town with adequate service. This is NOT an open competitive bidding process.

TOWN BOARD SUPERVISOR VACANCY

With the retirement of Supervisor Huetter there will be a vacancy starting in October for the last 6 months of the 2 year term of this Supervisor position.

Considering this time period is ¼ of the actual term and with the fact that the area is in a state of emergency it is sensible to make sure that the Town Board is at its full capacity. State law allows the Town Board to appoint a person to fill the vacancy.

The Board is requesting anyone interested in being considered for this vacancy to submit a letter by end of the day August 31, 2020, outlining the strengths and qualities that they would bring to the position. Interviews may be conducted of potential candidates.

You may mail or drop off the letter to the Town Offices at:

SUPERVISOR HUETTER RETIREMENT

Supervisor Tom Huetter

After serving the Town of Pittsfield on various Boards and committees for 40 years, Town Board Supervisor Tom Huetter announced at the August Board meeting that he will be retiring from his public service after at the end of September. Tom and his wife Betty have sold their home here in the Town and are moving to Alabama to be near their children and grandchildren.  

Tom’s, dedication, knowledge of Town history and straight forward common sense will be great missed. It will be sad not seeing Tom, an avid walker (putting in 7 miles a day) on the trails and back-roads of our community. He not only walked the roads but often used that time to speak with residents and listen to their desires and concerns. This is truly a great loss for our Town.

A small ceremony of appreciation is planned during the September 8th Town Board Meeting.
