A presentation for a fund raiser to Park Falls Community Pool was given by
Gay Palecek and Debbie Oswald. They asked for a contribution from the town
of $2,000 to pay for needed repairs. Some towns gave $500 initially and pledged
the balance on the next budget. Mary Kramer supported the project. She stated
it is one of the hidden treasurers in this area, and is very therapeutics. Patricia
Matula questioned the promotion. Gay stated they have gone to both big and
small businesses and have asked for contributions from everyone they could
think of. They learned through this campaign that they need to market the pool
more. Leslie Wells supported the fund raiser. She uses the pool regularly. They
give swimming lessons and even give private lessons. Jerry Luke made a
motion to move to table a decision until the next meeting when there would be
a full board present. Gerry Mikula seconded, motion carried.

replacement. Jerry Luke made a motion to appoint Bob Lepper to the Planning
Commission. Gerry Mikula seconded, motion carried.
