Winter Carnival: $6,392 income, net loss of $400. Advertising/Fireworks, Trophies, Robes, Curling Contest, Outhouse Prizes, Walkie Talkies were extras this year. Outside food sales were reported to be good.
Horicon Supervisor Report: Matt Simpson reported that the bridge is owned by the County. Borings have been done on the abutments with a plan to drop in place a pre-manufactured piece. This will depend on how the boring tests come through. Plan B – will be to make it into a bike/pedestrian crossing to promote walks around the mill pond. The Town owns the dam. Borings have been done there but they have to wait for test results. They should know by April how the moneys will be spent
