After concerns were voiced by Cadott residents last month, at a May 15 village board meeting, Pleasant Valley Properties owner John Scharlau was on hand to address issues with the mobile home park at 306 South Ash Street.

“We’re just looking for some assistance and guidance I guess,” said Anson Albarado, village president, “because you’re the owner of a place where we’re having a few issues.”

In 2016 alone, the Cadott Police and Chippewa County Sheriff’s departments responded to 57 out-of-office dispatch calls at the mobile home park, in addition to 15-20 direct office calls. Since January, there have been 15 calls to the park, which range from domestic disputes, to assault and battery.

“In the last two years, it has basically gotten out of hand,” said Cadott Police Chief Louie Eslinger.
