Deputy to meet public at open house
Placeholder Image
SOUTH WAYNE - South Wayne has a community deputy, and people can stop by to meet him from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Monday at the South Wayne Fire Department.

Eric Seiler began his duties in the village in December. Seiler previously was employed with the Cashton Police Department for two years, Lafayette County Sheriff Scott Pedley said. He was hired by the Lafayette County Sheriff's Department in November.

Cashton is in Monroe County and has a population of about 1,000.

Seiler will patrol the village and be available to assist residents at various times of the week. The contract for the sheriff's department to supply a deputy to South Wayne is similar to the agreement the sheriff's department has with the village of Blanchardville. The village and the sheriff's department entered into the contract in December, Pedley said.

The open house for Seiler will give village residents a chance to meet him, and also give him a chance to meet them.

"It will also be an opportunity to hear of any concerns and answer any questions citizens may have," Pedley said.
