PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

July 11, 2019

           A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on July 11, 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, Chris Behymer, Jim Bublitz, Cheryl Goodrich, Kerry Horton and Dave Snow. 

            

         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 Reeseville Public Library.

           

         Ajay Schnitzler from Sunny Creek Mobile Home Park was present for public comments. Ajay laid out some concerns he had regarding the previous building inspector. A building permit was taken out through General Engineering Company (GEC) just prior to Kunkel Engineering Group (KEG) taking over jurisdiction. Ajay has had continuous problems with GEC and requested to move over his permit and inspections to KEG. Tammy Hampton from KEG was present and offered to discuss a possible resolution with both KEG and GEC. There was no further discussion.

           

         A resident and lot owner from the subdivision on the very end of South Main Street was present to discuss some concerns he has. The gentleman has a vacant lot that he would like to eventually build on, however, his neighbors utility lines run right through the property. It was questioned on who’s responsibility it is to have these lines removed from his property. Dean Ziegel reiterated that the subdivision was not properly laid out and the Village does not own any utility lines other than the mains and all laterals are privately owned. There should have been an easement agreement between the two parties when the lots were bought, however, such an agreement does not exist. Discussion was tabled. 

 

Eric & Sandy Salmi were present to give an update on the outcome of first annual Arts & Music Festival, held on June 23rd. The event was very successful with twenty-two vendors, a petting zoo, pony rides, three bands were booked and there was local talent on stage. With the Boards permission, they would like to begin planning the next event for 2020; a date to be determined. The Board commended the Salmi’s and Lakeside 4H Group for all of their hard work and for a successful event. There were no foreseeable concerns about planning the next event as long as the Community Center was also contacted.  

 

Greg Raube asked why the agenda and meeting minutes were not posted on the Village’s website. The agenda and previous meeting minutes are posted at the Village Hall, Post Office & Library, three days prior to the regular Board meeting and can be revised up to twenty-four hours prior. The ClerkTreasurer will contact the website administrator to see if the agenda and minutes can be posted online, going forward.  

           

             The consent agenda was approved on a motion by Cheryl Goodrich and seconded by Kerry Horton. Motion carried. The consent agenda included approval of the minutes of the previous regular meeting, the general fund treasury report and the utility treasurer’s report. 

     

             Tammy Hampton from Kunkel Engineering Group was present to give an update on the 2018 Utility Improvement Project and closeout. There is a one-year warranty included on the work completed, beginning when the final payment is received by Wood Sewer & Excavating. The total utility project came in under budget by $110,616.85 and the Village was able to maximize the entire CDBG grant. WDNR will wire the final payouts on July 24th and the CDBG closeout should happen by the end of August. Motion by Dave Snow and seconded by Chris Abell to approve the final pay request from Wood Sewer & Excavating, in the amount of $49,007.03. Motion carried. 

            

             Tammy also gave an update on the main lift station improvement project. The contract has been drafted and sent to the Village attorney for review. Tammy discussed a memo dated July 9, 2019 from Attorney Larson, with recommendations and comments regarding the contract. There was a motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Cheryl Goodrich to amend the contract to include a direct payment alternative. Motion carried. 

     

             A recommendation to jump to item #11on the agenda was made. There were no objections.     

           

             Discussion was had on property maintenance issues and current ordinances. Kunkel Engineering Group has reviewed the current ordinances and will suggest updates to bring them current. It was noted that the City of Beaver Dam applies inspection fees to the tax roll and the Village may want to do the same. The Public Health & Welfare Committee will be meeting every two to three weeks until the ordinances are up to date. It was stated that properties, Village wide, are being checked on and no-one will be singled out in the process. A list was compiled of eighteen properties with maintenance issues to be addressed, so far. 

      

             It was recommended to resume back to item #6 on the agenda, there were no objections.

           

             Police Chief Bahr was present to give the monthly police report. Patrol activity included traffic stop warnings and six citations. Call for service included a neighbor dispute, warrant apprehension, property maintenance warning, grass/weed contacts, junk vehicle warnings, 911 hang up, assist rescue, dog license follow ups, commercial junk warning and an alarm. 

           

             Fire Chief Gay was absent, but Captain Abell gave the report, in his place. Chief Gay wants to thank the Lakeside 4H Club for all of their hard work on the Art & Music Festival and looks forward to working with them again next year. He also wants to thank the Village Board for sending him and the Assistant Fire Chief, to the Chief’s Convention, where they learned about a variety of topics. The next BINGO is on July 14th, the progressive pot is $920.00 and 51 balls will be called. Calls for service for the month include a lift assist, smoke in a residence, assist Watertown EMS, a motorcycle accident and mutual aid to Clyman. 

           

            Chris Abell also gave an update on the First Responders. There are two new members; one is already certified and the second just finished class. A new rig was recently purchased at auction and will be housed in Lowell’s station. The new rig is a 2009 Ford Ambulance, purchased for $24,800. The current rig will be sold and half of the profit will go to Lowell Fire Department and the other half will go to the First Responders.    

           

           Paul Scharfman was present to give an update on the Specialty Cheese expansion project. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the project will be set back by a full year. Paul assured the Board that the expansion will happen, just not this year. 

             

           Discussion was had on the Specialty Cheese offer to purchase, of the Nature Center land. The Village attorney reviewed the offer and had comments and recommendations. The Finance & Personnel Committee will meet with Paul to discuss the offer and propose revisions. It was noted for the record that the original wastewater agreement from 2014 still needs to be executed. Paul suggested that the original agreement will be signed when he had a revised agreement ready to take its place.  

 

Library Director Kay Kromm was absent, but a monthly library report was reviewed by the Board. There was no further discussion.

 

Dean Ziegel gave an update on the utilities. A resident on the South end of town dug up their own water service at 11:00 p.m. which required Dean to turn off the water at the curb. Discussion was had on establishing fees for property owners/residents for such emergencies in the future; further discussion is needed. A storm on June 28th took all of the lift stations out of service, but they are now back up and running.

 

Dean also commented that there was nothing new to report on the streets and alleys. 

 

Discussion on golf carts and the clear water discharge ordinance were tabled. Dean noted however, that a resident approached him and expressed his concerns about allowing golf carts on Village roadways. The Streets & Alleys Committee will meet to discuss golf carts and the clear water discharge ordinance. 

 

Discussion on rekeying the Village Hall was tabled, no new information was available. 

 

Kerry Horton gave an update on the Community Center. Kerry thanked Dave Snow and Ken Leistico for contacting Klecker’s and arranging for a commercial dehumidifier to be installed. The unit has been installed for a little over two weeks and has already made a major improvement on the humidity and condensation in the building. The unit has not been purchased yet and a decision will be made at the next committee meeting. There are still concerns about the bar area since it’s closed off when not in use, they may purchase another small dehumidifier specifically for that area. 

       

           There was nothing new to report from the Recreation Department.

      

           Discussion was had on the Drainage Board Assessment. No further action was made. 

           

          President Miller gave an update on the transfer of Village funds to the new bank. The majority of the funds have been moved with the exception of a CD to be moved at the end of August when it matures and the CDBG checking account, which will closeout when the 2018 utility project final payment is made. 

           

         The current fence ordinance will go to the Public Health & Welfare Committee for review. Discussion was tabled. 

 

        President Miller recommended the appointment of Greg Raube, for a two-year term, to the Community Center Board. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Kerry Horton to approve the appointment. Motion carried.
