Kimberly mayor wants work day set to clean up city park

KIMBERLY — Kimberly Mayor Bob Ellerbrock wants to schedule a work day at the city’s park in the near future.

The park was heavily damaged by the tornado in April, though much clean-up and repair work has been done since. In last Tuesday’s city council meeting, Ellerbrock asked members to think about scheduling the work day in the next couple of weeks, and to check on what other areas may need clean-up work.

It’s the latest move by city officials, as Kimberly continues to repair and rebuild from the EF-2 tornado that went through the heart of the city on April 28.

Ellerbrock also announced that Greg Pugliese, an attorney who has served as the prosecutor in municipal court, had resigned effective immediately. Pugliese also ran the court’s driving school. “He’s left us in a bind,” Ellerbrock said.

In other business, the council:

• awarded bids of $2,950 and $2,450 for repairs to roofs on the park restrooms and the city garage, respectively, to Norwood Roofing

• approved $1,200 for All-Pro Transmission to rebuild a transmission in a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria police cruiser

• voted to upgrade a city hall computers to the Windows 7 operating system and the current version of Microsoft Office software, at a cost of $199.98.
