Donna Cox has worked in various communities before joining the Richfield staff, some of which are New Berlin and Town of Lisbon. She will be attending village board meetings in the future. Welcome to Richfield. Stop in and introduce yourself.
Comments and signs by Danah Zoulek regarding item 8 b. added interest to the meeting.
Closed session items were:
8. CLOSED SESSION
a. Discussion /Action to enter into Closed Session under Wis. Stats. 19.85(1)(g) update from legal counsel for the governing body who is rendering oral or written advice concerning strategy to be adopted by the governing body with respect to litigation in which it is or is likely to become involved.

Danah began by stating Jim Healy is the Village Chief of Police (necessary as Richfield contracts for Police service) questioning why people who let their dogs defecate in the parks were not given tickets yet she has multiple citations when her dogs go loose. She wanted to know why village maps were not up to date. And she was unhappy regarding the assessment for her property. President Jeffords questioned whether or not her comments were relevant to the agenda items to which Danah said something like Jim Healy's performance is on the agenda therefore these items apply. When her time was up she was given an additional half minute since she was not happy the President had spoken during her 3 minutes.
Upon sitting down she immediately began making medium sized signs by writing on sheets of white plastic and then set them on the chairs around her so the board members could read her signs.
Again nothing to unusual for a Richfield Village Board meeting.
