February 14, 2019


A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on February 14, 2019 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, Jim Bublitz, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt. Trustee Chris Behymer arrived at 6:35 p.m. and Trustee Lee Brasch 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-Treasurer’s Office.


                There were public comments and input. Christopher Hookstead was present and asked the Village for an easement off County Road J, in order to access his property. Mr. Hookstead currently has an easement which is accessed by entering a property owned by a business. Due to conflicts between the business and Mr. Hookstead, he would like the Board to help make peace between him and the business or find an alternate way for him to access his property. The Board agreed to further discussion, at a later date.


Christine Abell, Clerk-Treasurer, spoke on behalf of a resident who emailed her a complaint about snow removal and a dispute between neighbors. The resident asked that the Board look into revising the current snow and ice removal ordinance to include a provision, prohibiting a property owner from dumping snow onto another property. The Board agreed to further discussion, at a later date.


President Brian Miller, on behalf of Paul Scharfman, owner of Specialty Cheese, asked Jim Bublitz about the progress on the Nature Center land. Jim had contacted a surveyor who said that the plat is valid and will come out and mark out the lot lines when we are ready.


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


                The treasurer’s report of the General Treasury was reviewed by the Board.  Motion by Chris Behymer and seconded by Kerry Horton 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 Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt that the Utility Treasurer’s report be approved. Motion carried.


President Miller asked if there were any objections to jumping to item 12(d), discussion on garbage collection issues. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to move up item 12(d). Motion carried.


Margaret Schmidt discussed the current garbage collection issues, including the uncourteous driver, delayed pickup(s), missed properties and throwing of the garbage bins. John, was present on behalf of Advanced Disposal to discuss our concerns and find a solution. The previous weekend, the garbage truck broke down and the driver was going to collect on Saturday, but never showed up to work.  There is a new residential supervisor who will be watching the driver closely and following him on his route in Reeseville. John also discussed replacing the driver and having someone new do the route. However, since the Village is still on manual pickup and have not changed over to automatic pickups, the number of drivers they have, willing to do manual pickup, is limited. John will do his best to find an alternate driver going forward. There was discussion on upgrading to automatic pickups when the contract comes up for renewal. Discussion was tabled.


The meeting resumed to item 7 on the agenda.


Police Chief Bahr was absent, but a monthly police report of calls/service was left for the Board to review. The calls for the month included junk on the sidewalk, a driving complaint, a welfare check, a neighbor dispute, a parking complaint and a vacation check request. There was no further discussion.


Fire Chief Gay was present to give the monthly fire report. The calls for the month included a tractor vs. train accident, a mobile home fire and burnt food/smoke in an apartment building. Chief Gay gave an update on BINGO. The last BINGO attendance was at 102 and the next game will be on March 10th. The progressive pot is now at $2,392 and 56 balls will be called. Chief Gay gave a friendly reminder to residents to shovel out any fire hydrants on their property and keep them clear. Chief Gay also thanked the Village Board and Dean Ziegel for the new carpeting in Village Hall.


Margaret Schmidt gave a brief update on the Lowell-Reeseville First Responders. They will be starting a refresher course in the next week or so. Margaret regrettably noted that she may need to resign from the First Responders, due to medical issues. Dean Ziegel and the Village Board thanked Margaret for all of her hard work and dedication throughout the years, as a First Responder.


There was no library reports or updates.


Dean Ziegel gave an update on the utilities. There haven’t been any utility owned water breaks, due to the extreme cold weather. However, there were a few citizen complaints about private water lines breaking. The library basement water lines also froze, which was fixed by purchasing a portable heater for the basement. There were low temperature alerts on the North Main lift station and the Sewer Ponds. The North Main lift station was down, due to commercial waste from Specialty Cheese. Environmental Specialists pumped the lift station and disposed of the material. This expense will be billed back to Specialty Cheese. The lift station is only designed to accommodate domestic waste. Dean noted that the water tower had been losing water and the source was unknown, until recently. A vacant home on Lincoln Avenue went through 105,000 gallons of water, due to water line breaks in the home. The home has been flooded and is in disrepair and the water has since been shut off. The Clerk-Treasurer managed to contact the bank that owns the property and hopefully there will be a resolution before summer.


Dean Ziegel also gave an update on the streets. The streets and sidewalks are very icy due to the extreme winter weather. Dean noted that residents have been doing a good job at keeping the sidewalks clear and salted. Dean commended Zechzer Excavating for doing a great job removing the snow and salting the roads.


Ordinance A-114 “An Ordinance Repealing and Recreating Section 3-1-8(c) Payment of Regular Wages or Salaries of the Code of Ordinances of the Village of Reeseville”; was presented to the Board for adoption. The ordinance would mandate that all employees receive their wages by direct deposit. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer to adopt Ordinance A-114. Motion carried. 


Christine Abell, Clerk-Treasurer, discussed the Village Hall phone and fax lines. The phone line rings in Dean’s office and simultaneously at the Village Hall. It was noted that the phone line and fax in Dean’s office are primarily used for the utilities. The Village Hall’s share of cost for both lines runs around $454.00 a year. Since no one is currently working from the Village Hall, Christine recommended have the utilities take over ownership of the phone line and fax. In turn, she also requested that the Village Hall’s budget contribute towards the Clerk-Treasurer’s phone, which would be about $140.00 per year. This would be a cost savings of $314.00 per year. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to change over ownership of the phone line and fax to the utilities and to contribute towards the Clerk-Treasurer’s phone from the Village Hall budget. Motion carried.


The Board discussed the Drainage Board assessment from November, 2018. A memo from the Village attorney was reviewed. Discussion was had on appealing the assessment due to the lack of information on all the parcels listed on the assessment. To date, the Drainage Board has been unable to state the owners of the properties assessed to the Village. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to move forward with an appeal to the assessment. Due to the extra-legal costs involved, a roll call vote was had; Chris Abell -yes, Chris Behymer -yes, Jim Bublitz -yes, Kerry Horton -yes, Margaret Schmidt -yes and Brian Miller -yes. (6 -yes, 0 -no, 1 -absent) Motion carried.


Ordinance A-115 “An Ordinance to Repeal and Re-Create Section 11-2-15(3)b of the Village of Reeseville Village Code Concerning Prohibited Activities of Designated Offenders” was presented to the Board for adoption. The ordinance would prohibit designated sex offenders from loitering on library grounds. Motion by Margaret Schmidt and seconded by Kerry Horton to adopt Ordinance A-115. Motion carried.


President Miller made the following appointments to the Residency Board; Kay Kromm for a five-year term, Jolle Straseske for a one-year term and Mike Couperous for a three-year term. The initial terms have been staggered and will be a term of five years, following the initial term.  Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve the appointments. Motion carried.


Discussion on creating an ordinance prohibiting gentleman’s clubs was tabled, due to lack of available information.


Margaret Schmidt gave a brief update on the property maintenance issues and noted that come springtime, action should be taken on quite a few properties.


There was nothing to report from the Public Property Committee.


Kerry Horton gave an update on the Community Center. The attendance at the last fish fry was about half of the first fish fry’s turnout. The Community Center will be partnering with Immanuel Lutheran Church for the fish fry in March. The Chamber of Commerce made a donation to the Community Center, which will go towards a dehumidifier to prevent mold in the storage room. Wages for the manager were discussed at the last Community Center Board meeting, however, there were no changes made, at this time.


There was nothing to report from the Recreation Department.


Ordinance A-116 “An Ordinance to Repeal and Re-Create Certain Provisions of Title 15 Chapter 1 “Building Code” of the Code of Ordinances; Section 15-1-1 Building Code Established, 15-1-2(g) Waiver of Plans; Minor Repairs, 15-1-3 Uniform Dwelling Code Adopted and 15-1-4 Construction Standards; Code Adopted” was presented to the Board for approval. In order to have General Engineering Company continue doing commercial electrical inspections, it was a requirement of the State to update some of our Building Codes. Motion by Chris Abell and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to adopt Ordinance A-116. Motion carried.


Appointment to the Community Center was tabled and will remain tabled until the annual appointments are done, in May.
