Town Of Campbell Starts Selling Boat Landing Permits
Many communities with a large amount of boat traffic charge fees for letting boaters use public landings...
Now, the town of Campbell is starting to sell its own permits for four specific landings...Nelson Park, Fisherman's Road, and two on the spillway. Town administrator Chad Hawkins says the landing charges will be official, once signs are posted at the landing sites. The yearly boat landing permits in Campbell are 10 dollars for a resident, 15 dollars for a non-resident, and 5 bucks for a trailer. Daily passes also will be available.

No New Referendum, But Fluoride Moves Ahead In Holmen
The idea of another fluoride referendum in Holmen has been put on hold...
That's because the village board is moving ahead with plans to end its two-year ban on fluoridation. By a 4-3 vote last night, the board chose to spend six thousand dollars on an engineering plan for switching to a different form of fluoride than is used in most of the United States. The same idea was rejected last week by Holmen's public works committee. Village president Nancy Proctor suggested that the village was preparing to 'throw away' 86-thousand dollars spent on the original fluoridation system that was shut down in 2011...in favor of a new system that could cost an extra 70-thousand dollars. The board would still have to approve the engineering plan.

Contract For New Campbell Library On Hold Until Next Week
One year after the town of Campbell purchased an old church on Lakeshore Drive, the town board still has not settled on a developer to turn the building into a library.
Board members opened bids for the project this week, but did not award the contract yet. Some or all of the four bidders could be interviewed at a special meeting next week. The lowest bid for the library construction is about 80-thousand dollars. Campbell leaders plan to move the library branch out of the town hall on French Island, in order to expand the emergency management office.
