ELK MOUND — For nearly 40 years, Terry Stamm served the Village of Elk Mound, first as the police chief for ten years and then as the director of public works.
And now Stamm continues his service to the village as a trustee on the Elk Mound Village Board.
At the August 12 meeting, the Elk Mound Village Board accepted the resignation of Village Trustee Pat McDougall.
McDougall resigned because he moved out of the village.
The village board subsequently approved appointing Stamm to fill McDougall’s position.
Stamm also was appointed as chair of the village board’s public works and streets committee that oversees water and sewer utilities, streets, lights and the landfill.
Village Trustees Tom Gilbert and Tony Schrantz also serve on the public works and streets committee.
Schrantz was formerly the chair of the public works and streets committee but reportedly was quite willing to turn over the committee to Stamm considering his decades of experience as the director of public works.
Stamm officially retired as director of public works in December of 2014. He spent the two years prior to his retirement training his replacement, Mark Levra.
Stamm says he is looking forward to continuing his service to Elk Mound as a trustee on the village board.
Andy Peterson serves as the Elk Mound village president.
In addition to Gilbert, Schrantz and Stamm, village trustees include Brenda Carpenter, Chad Mousel, and Travis Wenzel.
