These changes are effective May 1, 2021 as applied to those positions that are elected during the April 2021 election, and also will apply to those elected during the April 2023 election.

Trick or Treat
Acting Village President John Stenzel asked Village Clerk MacKenzie Belan to look into whether or not the village could have Trick or Treating hours this year. Belan said that as of the meeting, the Lee County Health Department has not come out and said no Trick or Treating. She said she talked to the 4-H Club, which normally hosts an event for Halloween, and the club said they are not going to do anything this year. She said she also spoke with Pastor Brian McWethy of Grace Fellowship Sublette, and reported that the church is planning on doing something. Belan said that certain things should be followed this year for Trick or Treating like the treats already in a bag and the bags on a table in the front yard, so children won’t be going up and ringing the doorbell.
Sublette Village Trustee Julie Kessel said she feels it’s up to the parents if they want their children to go Trick or Treating, adding that residents can turn their lights off if they do not want Trick or Treaters.
The board decided to hold off setting a date, time, guidelines for people, until the next board meeting.
