Wild Rose Board approves police body cameras

The Wild Rose Village Board approved the purchase of two body cameras for the police department during the June 3 regular meeting. 

Board member Tim Ganzel stated it makes “good business sense” to have the body cameras for the officers. The cameras cost $249 each and delivery will take 3-4 weeks. 

It was suggested that village ordinance fine rates for violators be raised to $187, but Marc Bickford will be consulted on the issue before any definite decisions are made.

During the meeting, it was pointed out that High Street was marked out for what work is to be done on. It became clear that some ditching would have to be completed on the northeast area of the street in order to solve the swailing problem, and property owners in the area will be informed of what will be taking place.

The board approved Regina Nix’s request to have the noise ordinance waived or have a variance for it in July to have a live band perform on the Pioneer Pub’s deck until midnight.
