The Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department was ensured it would have the funding needed to replace aging equipment in the future after the board approved its request to increase their budget this week. The resolution was necessary when the fire department’s budget was higher than what the town board expected after the electors approved a levy override at its meeting last month. Liberty Grove Town Chairperson John Lowry says what the state sees will remain the same as it was before after the necessary adjustments are made.
The Liberty Grove Town Board also approved soil samples to begin taking place at its recently purchased properties in Gills Rock. It also gave permission to its counsel to do what it felt was best to do moving forward after the Village of Sister Bay requested a summary judgment regarding the ownership of the area’s wastewater treatment plant.
