Fundraiser Approved For Horton Beating Victim

A special fundraiser, to provide assistance to a Horton woman violently beaten earlier this month, will happen this weekend, following approval by the Horton City Commission. 

That happened Monday when resident, and event planner, Dallas Bond, brought his proposal to the Commission, requesting that East 12th Street, from the swimming pool to Highway 73/K20, be blocked off from noon to 4:00 Saturday.

The Commission took little time in deciding to approve the request, granting unanimous approval. 

Quick action was also taken on another road closure request, as the Horton National Bank plans their annual Customer Appreciation Night on the evening of June 22nd. 

To make that happen, the 100 Block of West 7th Street will need to be closed, and the Commission unanimously approved the application. 

Additionally, the Commission also gave unanimous approval to several requests from the Chamber of Commerce for the Brown County Fair Parade. 

Mirroring similar requests of the past, to make the annual tradition happen, street closings will have to happen, along with other adjustments in Horton, for the annual celebration. 

Following lengthy discussion regarding what could have been a costly detour route for sewer line replacement, the City Commisison,  following the idea floated by the County Commission that the route would have be funded by the City, decided to look at an alternative plan. 

And, it was towards the end of the regular meeting, that City Attorney Kevin Hill, following ongoing talk of reducing police officer overtime hours, informed Commissioners, while commending Police Chief Beau (has-un-or) Hasenohr, that the Chief has earned well deserved overtime pay(Play Audio :25 seconds) 

The meeting ended with a short executive session, focused on personnel matters of non-elected personnel, as requested by Mayor Tim Lentz.
