PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

July 12, 2018

 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on July 12, 2018 and called to order by Village President, Brian Miller, at 6:30 p.m. The pledge of allegiance was recited.  The following Trustees were present, Chris Abell, Lee Brasch, Jim Bublitz, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt. Trustee Chris Behymer, was absent.

 

            Notice of this meeting was given to the public at least 24 hours prior to the meeting by posting the complete agenda at the Reeseville Village Hall, the Reeseville Post Office & the State Bank of Reeseville. Copies of the complete agenda were available for inspection at the Village Clerk’s Office.

 

          There were no public comments or input.

 

         Minutes of the previous regular meeting were sent to all Board members and posted. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Jim Bublitz that the meeting minutes be approved. Motion carried.

 

        The treasurer’s report of the General Treasury was reviewed by the Board.  Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Abell that the Village Treasurer’s report be approved.  Motion carried.

 

The treasurer’s report of the Water & Sewer Utilities was reviewed by the Board. Motion by Margaret Schmidt and seconded by Lee Brasch that the Utility Treasurer’s report be approved. Motion carried. 

 

Don Neitzel, from Kunkel Engineering, was present and gave an update on the 2018 utility improvement project. The majority of the construction work is complete, including most of the concrete work. Top soil has been put down, but not seeded and the landscaper will be here soon to finish. The road will be rough graded, fine graded and then asphalt laid in the next couple of weeks. Scott Lamer’s Construction will start calling residents with private lead service lines, to schedule property evaluations and give quotes for lead service line replacements. There are two spots where the sidewalk concrete has not been completed, which will wait until the lead service lines have been replaced. There are a couple of curb and gutter areas that need to be fixed and should be completed the following week. 

 

Don also discussed the second pay request from Wood Sewer & Excavating. Don noted a few items that were over budget and others that were under, however, in the end, it will be a wash. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded Kerry Horton to approve the second pay request from Wood Sewer & Excavating, in the amount of $290,044.52. A roll call vote was taken, Chris Abell- Yes, Lee Brash- Yes, Jim Bublitz – Yes, Kerry Horton -Yes, Margaret Schmidt -Yes and Brian Miller -Yes. Chris Behymer was absent. Motion carried. (6 -Yes, 0-No)

 

Don gave an update on the Main Street Lift Station project. The landscaping still has not been finalized, the area just needs some additional topsoil and seeing. Don stated that Next Electric has been contacted and he does not have a completion date available. Don is requesting for the final pay request for Next Electric, to be released and paid. The pay request was approved at a previous board meeting, contingent on the completion of the landscaping. Don stated that if the landscaping is not finished by the contractor, that Kunkel Engineering will get it completed at no additional cost to the Village. The Board agreed to pay the final pay request. 

 

President Brian Miller presented and read a Fair Housing Proclamation. The proclamation states that the Village supports fair housing opportunities for all citizens regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, familial status and handicap. The proclamation was then signed by the Village President and countersigned by the Village Clerk-Treasurer. 

 

The Board reviewed the monthly police report prepared by Police Chief Bahr. Chief Bahr was absent, however, Officer Harmsen was present. Officer Harmsen gave an update on the case between the Village and Mr. Bergman. Mr. Bergman hasn’t made any recent progress on cleaning up his property and the Board discussed the next steps. Since Mr. Bergman failed to clean up his property, a warrant was issued last month. However, the warrant was not executed since Mr. Bergman was cooperating at that time. Now that there is no longer any progress being made, the Board feels that further action should be taken.  Discussion will be had with Chief Bahr on moving forward with the case. Officer Harmsen also discussed some concerns he has with the current village attorney. Discussion on the village attorney is item eighteen on the agenda and the discussion was tabled until then.

 

           Fire Chief Gay was present to give the fire department report. In June, the Reeseville Fire Queen and Fire Princess, were chosen. The new Fire Queen is Tatum Beyer and the new Fire Princess is Jami Zechzer.  August 11, 2018 is the Corn Roast at the Community Center/Park. They will have a chicken dinner, free corn, kid’s games, music entertainment and fireworks. There were no fire calls for the month of June. BINGO attendance for July was down, as was the sound system. The fire department was called out right before BINGO started. Chief Gay thanked Jim Bublitz, Margaret Schmidt, the fire department treasurer and two other firefighters who stayed behind to keep BINGO running. The next BINGO will be August 12. The progressive pot is down to $226 after the pot was won the month prior. The Fire Department has begun removing the old landscaping in front of Village Hall and new plants will be arriving soon.

 

Margaret Schmidt gave an update on the Lowell-Reeseville First Responders. There is one new recruit who recently took their test and another who will be taking the test in August. Margaret was asked if no parking signs could be put in the stalls in front of the Police/First Responder building. There has recently been a problem where there are no parking stalls available when the First Responders are paged for calls. Discussion was tabled on the no parking signs for the time being. 

 

Library Director, Kay Kromm, was present to give the library report. Circulation and visits have been up. The library staff added 195 items, nine of which were new patrons. The summer reading programs have been going really well with high attendances. Kay handed out the library’s new check out receipts, that the computer generates. At the bottom on the receipt, it shows you how much money you saved by using the library. It shows totals of what you saved that day and what you saved since you obtained a library card. Kay noted that they had an incident at the library involving a minor. The situation was handled and the patron was banned from the library. Kay touched base on the Gale Courses offered by the library. There are many courses available and its free to library patrons. Many of the classes can be counted as college credits.

 

Dean Ziegel was absent and Brian Miller gave a report on his behalf. On June 20, there was a flood at the sewer plant and on June 21, there were dogs running at large at midnight. Also, on June 21, the lead service line notices were delivered to residents. Dean read the water meters on June 19th and 20th for the second quarter utility billing. On July 1, there was a power failure and everything had to be reset.  

 

At the June board meeting, Jim Nelson was present to discuss his concerns about his water quality. Since Jim is on the dead end of the water service line, there is not a good way to flush out his water system. The Board has agreed that this is a special circumstance and also agreed to give Jim a credit on the next water and sewer utility bill, so he can flush out his home’s water system. Dean will read the meter prior to flushing out the system and then again right afterwards so an accurate credit can be made. Motion by Kerry Horton and seconded by Jim Bublitz to approve a credit on Jim Nelson’s next utility bill so he can flush out his home’s water system. Motion carried.

 

The Clerk-Treasurer gave an update on the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands loan application. The application was approved for $30,000.00 to replace private lead service lines. A new checking account will be opened specifically for the loan funds. Discussion was had on the number of residents who will be potentially using the financing offered by the Village. We will have a more definitive answer once Scott Lamer’s Construction makes home visits and gives each homeowner a better estimate of cost.

Jim Bublitz noted that he will have the Personnel and Finance Committee meet with each department head soon to discuss their 2019 budget.

 

Margaret Schmidt gave the Public Health & Welfare Committee report. Margaret received a few calls about bulk garbage items getting missed. Lee Brasch noted that he spoke with the Advanced Disposal driver that day and handled the situation.

 

          Chris Abell gave the Public Property Committee report. Chris presented a minor land division request from Dodge County Land Resources and Parks Department, for a property located in the Town of Lowell on County Highway G. Motion by Chris Abell and seconded by Jim Bublitz to return the request as “No Recommendation”. Motion carried. 

 

Margaret Schmidt made a note that she was approached by a resident who was inquiring about getting home delivery for their mail, by the USPS. The resident spoke with USPS; however, the resident was unable to get any answers. Discuss was had, however, there are a lot of unknowns and the discussion was tabled. 

 

Kerry Horton gave the Community Center report. Klecker’s recently did the HVAC checkup and the coolers will be checked in a few weeks. Kerry noted that mold was found in the chair storage room. The mold had been cleaned up and the door to the room is being left open for more air circulation. Margaret Schmidt asked about the status of the credit card reader that was discussed at the last board meeting. The Clerk-Treasurer did research on the Square and information had been forwarded to the President and Kerry. It was lost in communication who would be purchasing the Square. The Clerk-Treasurer was then asked to purchase the Square on behalf of the Community Center. Jim Bublitz also noted that the Fire Department authorized Rhode Electric to install lights under the pavilion in the park.

 

            Margaret Schmidt gave the Recreation Department report. Margaret is waiting to get the final figures for the baseball participation. The Clerk-Treasurer will be invoicing the Village of Lowell and the Town of Lowell for their share of the lawn mowing expenses. The municipalities will be invoiced based on a percentage of the kids participating. 

 

            Discussion on the Village attorney was had. Brian Miller will be in contact with an attorney from Waukesha. Officer Harmsen suggested using the municipal court and Jim Bublitz offered to do some research. Discussion was tabled.

REESEVILLE WATERWORKS, PWS ID: 11401533

Water System Information

If you would like to know more about the information contained in this report, please contact Dean Ziegel at (920) 927-5243.

Opportunity for input on decisions affecting your water quality

206 S MAIN ST 2ND THURSDAY AT 7PM

Health Information

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791).

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune systems disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Environmental Protection Agency's safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791).

Educational Information

The sources of drinking water, both tap water and bottled water, include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

  • Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife.
  • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally- occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
  • Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and residential uses.
  • Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems.
  • Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same protection for public health.

Definitions

Term

Definition

AL

Action Level: The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow.

MCL

Maximum Contaminant Level: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

MCLG

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

MFL

million fibers per liter

MRDL

Maximum residual disinfectant level: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.

MRDLG

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

Treatment Technique: A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.

Detected Contaminants

Your water was tested for many contaminants last year. We are allowed to monitor for some contaminants less frequently than once a year. The following tables list only those contaminants which were detected in your water. If a contaminant was detected last year, it will appear in the following tables without a sample date. If the contaminant was not monitored last year, but was detected within the last 5 years, it will appear in the tables below along with the sample date

Additional Health Information

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Reeseville Waterworks is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
