The Onalaska City Council approved a proposed tax rate for publication of 0.2410 per $100 value during a special called meeting Aug. 7. A public hearing on the proposed tax rate is slated for 5:15 p.m. Aug. 22 at the Onalaska City Hall.

Several personnel action requests were on the agenda for the Aug. 8 regular meeting. Council accepted the resignations of Officer Koriell Campbell and Court Clerk Tammy Seader and approved the appointment of Macey George as court clerk.

Council heard departmental reports on the police department, fire department, fire marshal/building inspector and library representative.

The police department drove 4318.7 miles during the month of July, worked 25 cases, served 23 city warrants and did 14 follow-ups. They conducted 589 subdivision checks, 118 business checks and responded to 362 calls, resulting in 25 arrests, 125 warnings and 159 citations. They assisted other law enforcement agencies 29 times and the fire department/EMS 15 times.

The fire department responded to 37 calls in the city and 24 calls in the county, clocking a total of 311 man-hours during the month of July. They provided mutual aid three times, responded to 21 medical calls, four structure fires, 20 grass fires, three motor vehicle accidents, four lake rescues, five assistance calls and eight landing zones.

The fire marshal/building inspector conducted three fire investigations during the month of July, two of which were burn ban violations. A fire in Impala Woods was a structure fire that was ruled accidental in nature due to an electrical malfunction at the electrical connection for the sewer grinder pump.

The library reported total current patrons at 1,812 and total holdings records at 15,525. The library was open 20 days during the month of July and serviced 965 patrons. A total of $841.65 was brought in and 35.8 volunteer hours were worked.

Other business included approval of the minutes, vouchers and financial reports.
