PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

August 9, 2018

 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on August 9, 2018 and called to order by Village President, Brian Miller, at 6:32 p.m. The pledge of allegiance was recited.  The following Trustees were present, Chris Behymer, Lee Brasch, Jim Bublitz, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt. Trustee Chris Abell, 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.

 

            Steve Hackbarth was present for public comments and input. Mr. Hackbarth wanted to bring attention to water run off issues coming from the GJM Mini Storage Units. Mr. Hackbarth provided many photographs which showed the water run off issues and the damage the flooding causes. Homes on Jackson Street are directly affected when the snow melts each spring, which has caused damage to garages and homes. The snow from the storage units gets pushed onto the adjoining properties when removed from the business.  Dave Snow was also present and commented on how the flooding has personally affected his property. Mr. Hackbarth and Mr. Snow would like GJM Mini Storage Units to remove their snow in a different manner or have a drainage pipe installed. The Board agreed to have a committee get together to discuss the water run off issues and to find a solution. The discussion was tabled. 

 

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

 

            Minutes from the CDBG Hearing were sent to all Board members and posted. Motion by Jim Bublitz and

seconded by Chris Behymer that the CDBG hearing 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 Chris Behymer that the Utility Treasurer’s report be approved. Motion carried.

 

Tammy Hampton was present from Kunkel Engineering to give an update on the 2018 Utility Improvement Project. Don Neitzel from Kunkel Engineering had drafted an email, which was forwarded to the Board members. Tammy briefly discussed the email. A copy of the punch list, which was drafted by the project construction inspector, Alex Williams, was also reviewed. Tammy touched base on the funding; we are still waiting for our CDBG funds which usually takes 2-4 weeks, but we have received all our WDNR funds as we requested. The CDBG audit will be on September 6th and both Tammy and Christine, the Clerk-Treasurer, will meet on August 28th to prepare for the audit. Tammy stated that the funding should be closed out by October. Christine asked if there was an update on the lead service line replacements. Scott Lamers Construction has been in contact with homeowners and they have made site visits. It’s anticipated that the private lead service line replacements will begin by the end of next week.

 

Police Chief Bahr was present and gave the monthly police report. The citizen complaints and calls for service for the month include parking complaints, junk vehicle notices, assisting the library, landlord and tenant disputes and animal complaints. The report was also handed out and reviewed by the Board.  Chief Bahr noted that he provided security detail for Congressmen Sensenbrenner while he held office at the Village Hall. Chief Bahr also noted that there have been a few cases of loose chickens and he is currently working to fix the situation. 

 

Fire Chief Gay was present and gave the monthly fire report. The calls for the month include motor vehicle accidents, an electrical fire, mutual aid, a garbage fire, gas leaks and a business fire alarm. There have been 43 fire calls year-to-date. Chief Gay noted that the landscaping in front of Village Hall is almost complete. The fire department also leveled out the water/sewer payment drop box and removed a large concrete slab, with thanks to Caine Warehousing. Rhode Electric recently installed lights under the pavilions in the park. In the past, the stage, picnic tables and electrical boxes have been vandalized. The new lights should prevent future damage. The Corn Roast is on Saturday with BINGO following on Sunday. Chief Gay and Safety Officer, Jim Bublitz, discussed adopting a Knox Box ordinance. The ordinance would require business to have a Knox Box affixed to the building. The box would contain a key to access the building and gain entry when the business is closed. If the fire department has access to the building key, it would prevent the fire department from having to break in to gain entry in the event of an emergency. The box is vandalism proof and they can only be purchased through the fire department. If a business has multiple buildings, the business could put a key to each building in one central Knox Box. Police Chief Bahr spoke highly of Knox Boxes which are used in Beaver Dam. Chief Bahr suggested requiring the apartment buildings to also obtain a Knox Box. The Protection of Persons, Property & Safety Committee will get together to discuss further details and to reach out to each business owner to discuss the Knox Box benefits. 

 

            Library Director, Kay Kromm, was absent. The library board doesn’t meet until the following week and

there is not a report available. However, Brian Miller stated that the circulation has gone up 30%. 

 

Dean Ziegel gave a report on the utilities. Dean gave a shout out and thanks to Gary Kohn and Darrell Kromm for handling everything while he was on vacation. A jar of water was presented by Dean. The jar actually contained a wastewater sample. This sample is 45 days old and is what would have been discharged to the river. The sample was crystal clear and free of any deposits. Dean wanted to bring an example of how well the sewer plant is running. The Board commended Dean and his crew for all of their hard work.

 

Dean also touched base on the streets. It has been noted that there are complaints regarding the weeds left behind by the utility project contractors. Dean reiterated that the contractors are way ahead of schedule, by six weeks and asked for everyone to be patient while the finishing touches are completed.

 

Jim Bublitz presented a new operator’s license application for Nichole Marks, 520 N. Spring Street, Columbus, WI. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Lee Brasch to approve the application. Motion carried. 

 

            Jim also noted that the Personnel and Finance Committee will begin meeting with department heads to

begin discussion on the 2019 budget. 

 

Margaret Schmidt gave a report on the Public, Health and Welfare Committee. Margaret received complaints about Advanced Disposal leaving the garbage cans in the street.  Advanced Disposal was contacted and the problem has been resolved. Margaret had nothing further to report. 

 

Dean Ziegel suggested that the Public, Health and Welfare Committee should meet to discuss the water run off issue as stated in the public comments. Margaret Schmidt requested to withdraw herself from the meeting and Chris Behymer volunteered to temporarily fill in for Margaret until the issue is resolved.

 

            Dean commended the fire department for the landscaping that they did in front of Village Hall and thanked them for all their hard work. The Board also agreed and thanked them.

 

Kerry Horton gave a report on the Community Center. Jim Bublitz and Dave and Ruth Snow had suggested purchasing a warming table, however, chafing dishes may be purchased as it may be a better fit, cost wise. An advertising opportunity was brought to the Community Center Board by Jim Bublitz and they will be going forward with the advertising. To help pay for the additional advertising costs, the Community Center will start having fish fry’s. Kerry read off an email from Ken Leistico. The security alarms went off multiple times on August 6th.  The exact cause was unknown, it’s possible that the motion detector could have picked up a balloon that was left over from a party. There was also a smell of gas coming from the kitchen area. We-Energies was contacted and there were no leaks detected. Kerry also noted that the coolers were checked recently and maintenance was done.

 

            Dean Ziegel and Gary Kohn trimmed a lot of the trees in the baseball park. Dean thanked Gary for all of his hard work. 

 

Margaret Schmidt gave an update on the Recreation Department. There will not be swimming lessons this year due to lack of interest. Cory, from Cory’s Lawn & Snow Service, called Margaret about the low hanging tree limbs in the baseball field and gave a quote to trim up the trees. As mentioned earlier, Dean and Gary trimmed all of the trees and removed the brush. 

 

Brian Miller spoke with Attorney Eric Larson about meeting with the Board. Attorney Larson will be available at the September meeting. It was discussed having two attorneys, one for municipal representation and another attorney for citations. Jim Bublitz contacted Jackie Walters out of Juneau for possibly representing the Village for citations and she may be interested. Jim also contacted Maryanne, the city attorney for Beaver Dam and Maryanne did not want to take on another client at this time. 

 

        Appointment to the Community Center Board was tabled.

 

            Discussion on the appointment to the Fire Commission was had. In an email, Dave Beal gave a recommendation of Craig Kadinger or Jerry Stolzman to fill the expired term currently held by Craig Kadinger. Jim Bublitz gave some background information on Jerry and has personally known him for 30 years. Brian Miller made the recommendation to appoint Jerry Stolzman to the fire Commission. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to accept the appointment of Jerry Stolzman. Motion carried.

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.

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.

mrem/year

millirems per year (a measure of radiation absorbed by the body)

NTU

Nephelometric Turbidity Units

pCi/l

picocuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity)

ppm

parts per million, or milligrams per liter (mg/l)

ppb

parts per billion, or micrograms per liter (ug/l)

ppt

parts per trillion, or nanograms per liter

ppq

parts per quadrillion, or picograms per liter

TCR

Total Coliform Rule

TT

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.
