The Mount Pleasant Village Board doesn’t meet this week, but there is still plenty of business being conducted. On Wednesday, the Finance/Legal/License will consider a proposal from Police Chief Tim Zarzecki to release funds for a new K9 officer team and a resolution opposing Gov. Scott Walker’s budget proposal that would remove local property assessments from the village and move them to the county. The Personnel Committee Thursday will discuss command staff overtime policy and go into closed session to talk about promoting Logan Martin from Community Development Coordinator to Community Development Director with commensurate salary. Martin has been the sole development staffer at the village since 2013. Here’s a list of village committee and commission meetings. Click on the committees for a link to their agenda.
