Oak Creek to appoint trustee

What: Oak Creek Town Board meetingWhen: 7 p.m. ThursdayWhere: Oak Creek Town Hall, 129 Nancy Crawford Blvd.

— The Oak Creek Town Board is scheduled to appoint an Oak Creek resident to replace former trustee Bill Paxton tonight.

Town Clerk Karen Halterman said Wednesday the town has received letters from a couple of residents interested in replacing Paxton, who resigned July 14.

Halterman said the board will review letters tonight and most likely will make an appointment.

In other business, the Oak Creek Town Board will:

  • Review new Oak Creek restaurant Calamity Jane’s application for a liquor license. The restaurant has not been able to serve alcohol since it opened because it did not have a liquor license. If the Town Board approves the application tonight, the application would be forwarded to the state for final approval, Halterman said. If the state approves the application, then the town will grant Calamity Jane’s its liquor license.
  • Hear from a Nebraska Municipal Power Pool representative regarding the company’s recent transaction to buy alternative energy sources. Oak Creek purchases electricity from the company, Halterman said.
  • Consider the town’s 2005 financial audit. Halterman said the town has filed for an extension to submit the audit and most likely will not be approving it tonight.
