Bayfield looks to increase water rates 15 to 25 percent

Past problems, expansion require an adjustment

Also at Tuesday night’s Bayfield Town Board meeting:

- Bayfield resident Jim Harrman, who lives near the Town Hall, expressed irritation with the Town Hall’s exterior lights during the public comment portion of the meeting. He said they shined too brightly and too late in the day. Trustees agreed that light bulbs on town buildings should be brought up to city code and reduced from 25 watts to the code-mandated 20 watts. Town Manager Justin Clifton said that the lights were on an automatic timer, were on only 5 percent of the day and had already been lowered to accommodate neighboring residents.

- Bayfield Mayor Rick Smith suggested the town post metal reflective posts along town roads to aid snow removal and cut back on instances of plows coming in contact with sidewalks and private property.

- Trustee Dan Ford complimented city snow-removal efforts, and Trustee Brett Clough asked how continuing snowfall would affect garbage pickup.

- Giant Food Store’s application for a liquor license renewal to sell 3.2 beer at its location on Buck Highway (County Road 521) was passed without discussion.
