Another (small) Step Forward Toward A New Caledonia

Tonight, in a rare close vote, the Caledonia Village Board rejected paying for an updated study by a vote of 4-3. The motion came from Trustee Dobbs. It came after nearly an hour of spirited discussion among the board members.

Trustees David Prott, Kathy Trentadue, and President Bob Bradley joined Jim Dobbs in approving the motion to dismiss the study.

Trustees Kevin Wanggaard, Lee Wishau and Ed Willing rejected the measure.

However, a subsequent motion by Trustee Willing established an ad hoc committee that will pursue a negotiated contract for a possible study a month from now.
