No wake order still on for Salem lakes

With water levels still high, Salem will continue the slow, no wake enforcement on town lakes.

David Shortess, director of public safety, inspected the lakes on Friday. He said Tuesday he will assess the lakes again this week.

Chairman Linda Valentine noted many residents disregard the no wake order, or say they are not aware of the restriction. Shortess suggested permanent signs be placed by the lakes so boaters are alerted of when no wake is ordered and when it is lifted.

In other business, the board approved a raze order for the property on 9036 268th Ave. A public hearing was held at the start of the meeting with no comments regarding the property owned by Deboey Enterprises.

Building Inspector Jack Rowland determined the property to be dangerous, unsafe, unsanitary and unfit for human habitation, occupancy or use, due to the dilapidated condition of the structure.

Also to be razed is the property at 25104 113th St in Trevor, owned by Summerhill Development Corp.

The board also voted to keep Twin Lakes as the fiscal agent for the Community Library. The library is supported by the towns of Randall and Salem, and villages of Paddock Lake, Silver Lake and Twin Lakes.

The purchase of a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe from Hartnell Chevrolet received approval. The Tahoe will replace the current duty paramedic vehicle. The $29,989 quote was the lowest of three received by fire Chief Mike Slover.

Supervisor Jo Weidman read a proclamation lauding former Chairman Diann Tesar for her 18 years of community service then presented Tesar with a plaque.
