North Hudson Police Chief Mark Richert told members of the North Hudson Board of Trustees that there has been an increase in the theft of vehicle contents and the theft of copper.
“There have been attempts to steal copper tubing from Zappa Brothers, Mara Maria’s and local residences,” Richert said. “In some case thieves have ruined air conditioners trying to get at the copper pipe.”
Richert also told the board there has been a rash of vehicle break-ins.
“Items stolen have included GPS devices, cell phones and money,” Richert said. “In most cases the doors of the vehicles were not locked — lock your doors!”
Richert also asked citizens to keep an eye out for any suspicious behavior and to call 911 or the North Hudson Police at (715) 386-8433.
The village board addressed the following issues at its meeting Tuesday, July 5:
He said the village faces three options: 1) reassess and spend upwards of $60,000; 2) hire an outside firm and hire an “small army” of interns, volunteers and summer help; 3) extend the deadline allowing for a gradual transfer of data.
In a second action, the board combined the new loan with other existing debt for $620,010. The entire amount went to the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands with an interest rate of 3.75 percent on a 10-year loan. Other bids came from the RiverBank, Citizens State Bank and First American bank.
“The loan will save us over $17,000 during the life of the loan,” Klein said.
All trustees were present at the meeting. They are President George Klein and trustees Stan Wekkin, Colleen O’Brien-Berglund, Daryl Standafer, Marc Zappa, Jim Thomas and Dan Ortner.
