PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

November 8, 2018



 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on November 8, 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, Chris Behymer, Lee Brasch, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt. Trustee Jim Bublitz 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 no public comments or input.

           

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

           

Minutes of the special meeting for the 2019 budget planning was sent to all Board members and posted. Motion by Margaret Schmidt and seconded by Kerry Horton that the meeting minutes be approved. Motion carried

 

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

 

Tammy Hampton from Kunkel Engineering Group was present to give an update on the 2018 utility improvement project. The change order that was submitted to the DNR to extend the project completion date to May 31, 2019; was approved. A pay request from Wood Sewer and Excavating was not received prior to the meeting and was tabled until next month. The lead service lines should be completed by Monday, November 12, 2018. Dean Ziegel noted that the concrete work has also been finished.

 

President Miller asked if there was any objection to jumping to item 11 on the agenda. There were no objections.

 

The tenants of 103 North Avenue were present to discuss their water bill. Dean Ziegel read the meter for the third quarter billing and noticed the excessive water usage and he notified the residents immediately. The tenants claimed that due to the utility construction project, it broke their toilet which caused the water to run, non-stop. The project foreman was notified by the tenant that there was a problem with the toilet and the foreman investigated. The foreman offered to fix the toilet, even though they didn’t feel that it was due to the utility project. Tenant stated that the foreman only made one attempt at fixing the toilet and she never heard from them again. The landlord has since fixed the problem. The tenants are asking for a reduction to their water bill. Dean Ziegel noted that what the tenant and what the foreman are saying are completely different stories. The letter from Wood Sewer and Excavating was also discussed. There was a question as to why someone from the household didn’t contact a village official sooner, especially if the tenants thought it was due to the utility construction project. Tenants also stated that someone from the construction crew entered the house prior to any problems with the toilet. Dean stated that they were in there to look for a possible abandoned water line that was found during construction, outside their home. The tenant passed out pictures of sand in the toilet tank, which were reviewed by the Board. The Board then discussed what to do about the high-water bill. Brian Miller stated that the tenants should have asked the landlord to fix the toilet much sooner and that it was a courtesy of Wood Sewer and Excavating to even investigate and offer to fix the broken toilet. The Public Service Commission heavily regulates the water utility and water bills. There is not much that is able to be done to reduce their water bill. The water bill is the responsibility of the tenants and/or landlord and the full amount needs to be paid. The tenants were urged to come up with a payment plan and to contact the clerk-treasurer to discuss the specific payment arrangements.

 

The proposed sewer utility budget was presented for approval. The proposed budget is submitted yearly to the USDA, who provides feedback and approval of the cash flow. USDA recommended that the budget be approved by the USDA prior to the Board’s approval. To date, we have not heard back from the USDA and the discussion was tabled.

 

Dean Ziegel reviewed the Compliance Maintenance Annual Report that was submitted earlier in the year. We have received feedback from the DNR, on the report, and everything is going well. There were no suggestions for improvement or change.

 

The Board returned to item 9 on the agenda.

 

Police Chief Bahr was present to give the monthly police report. There were repairs done on the squad to fix the heater. The calls for the month included noise complaints, loose dogs, dog license issues, junk vehicle notices, neighbor dispute and a car vs. deer accident.

 

Fire Captain Chris Abell gave the monthly fire report on behalf of Fire Chief Gay. The calls for the month include carbon monoxide detector, a structure fire in Watertown, a motor vehicle accident, a motor vehicle accident in Clyman, setting up a landing zone in Clyman and a car fire. There have been 54 calls for the year, so far. The next BINGO is on November 11, 2018 at the Reeseville Community Center. The progressive pot is currently $1,175.00. The games will be changed up at the next BINGO in December. The Fire Department wants to thank everyone for their support at the fire prevention pancake breakfast. Captain Abell noted that in the next month or so, the fire department will be painting the meeting room, office and bathrooms. They will carry out the same color scheme as was done in the truck bay, without the red stripe. As always, the fire department is looking for new recruits, young or old.

 

The 2019 Watertown EMS contract was presented for approval. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve the 2019 Watertown EMS contract. Motion carried.

 

The 2019 911 Joint Powers Agreement with Dodge County was presented for approval. Motion by Chris Behymer and seconded by Chris Abell to accept the agreement. Motion carried.

 

Chief Bahr discussed the neighbor dispute that was mentioned in his monthly report. He noted that this issue may arise later on, if the neighbors can’t come to an agreement.

 

Brian Miller noted that there is no library report for the month. The Library Board meeting was pushed back to the third Monday of the month and the report(s) will be available at the December Board meeting.

 

Dean Ziegel gave a report for the streets and alleys. The leaf collection is almost finished and the last day for collection is November 15th. Dean thanked Dave Snow for mulching the leaves in the park and commended Dave for the outstanding job that he did. Residences with lead service line replacements are almost finished. Dean has been busy changing out the water meters, as the new service lines are put in.  The Christmas decorations have been checked and they will be hung after Thanksgiving. Dean also commended the fire department for cleaning out the storage shed and organizing everything.

 

Christine Abell, Clerk-Treasurer, presented a proposal for a wage increase and for payment in-lieu of benefits, starting in 2019. A spreadsheet of comparable wages for Clerk-Treasurers with the same population size was included. The comparable wages, on average, were higher by $7,000-$13,000. Christine’s proposal requested an increase of $480 which would bring the total salary to $20,000. In addition, a proposal for payment in lieu of benefits was requested. Now that the positions are combined, Christine is working as a full-time employee. She is requesting to receive $3,000 annually to put towards retirement. One thousand dollars would come from the general fund, water utility and sewer utility. Both the increase in wages and the payment in lieu of benefits, was accounted for when drafting the 2019 budget. Motion by Margaret Schmidt and seconded by Kerry Horton to approve the wage increase and the payment in lieu of benefits. Motion carried. Chris Abell abstained.

 

Ordinance A-112 “An Ordinance Appropriating the Necessary Funds for the Governing and Administration of the Village of Reeseville for the Year 2019”, was presented for approval. A formal budget hearing was held prior to the start of the regular board meeting and no objections were heard at that hearing. Margaret Schmidt made a note that there was an error in the First Responder’s proposed budget and there will be $270 excess in their budget. Motion by Margaret Schmidt and seconded by Chris Behymer to adopt Ordinance A-112. Motion carried.

           

         The 2019 Dodge County Humane Society Contract was presented for approval. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Chris Abell to approve the renewal at $1,100, which covers 5 animals. Motion carried.

           

        The Board discussed a donation to the Legion Auxiliary for Christmas bags. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Kerry Horton to make a $75 donation. Motion carried.

           

        Christine Abell gave an update on declaring TIF 2 as distressed and having TIF 3 become a donor to TIF 2. She originally spoke with Dave Anderson, the Village financial advisor, who said we would need to go to the State for an exemption. Upon the Boards request, Christine also reached out to the Village attorney, with the same question. Attorney Larson noted that there would need to be a lot of preparations made prior to reaching out the State. The Board decided to table any further action and revisit the discussion in spring 2019.

           

       The Board discussed the current sex offender residency ordinance. The ordinance as it’s written is very restrictive, this is due to the Village being long and narrow, in shape and size and the radius around prohibited areas. With the Village being as restrictive as it is, it could be seen as unconstitutional and the Village could be sued. The Board agreed to have the attorney draft a new ordinance to replace the current ordinance. Discussion was tabled.

           

       Margaret Schmidt discussed other property maintenance issues. The Board will be gathering a list of nuisance properties and a letter will be drafted and sent to the property owners. Margaret also made note to have the water spout off of Village Hall redirected to a new location since the current spout is directed towards a sidewalk. The spout will be removed entirely, since it was only used when the landscaping was being put in.

           

       A letter of intent from Dodge County was presented to the Board for W9397 County Road I, Reeseville. The land use is currently agricultural and will be used for a school and cemetery. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to return the letter to the county with “No Recommendations”. Motion carried.

 

            Kerry Horton gave a brief update on the Community Center. There will be a fish fry in January in combination with the 4-H group. Clearview may also be interested in hosting a future fish fry.

 

Margaret Schmidt gave an update on the Recreation Department. There has not been a meeting with the Baseball Association, to date, since there were conflicts in getting the meeting scheduled. This meeting will be for changing the key holders on the post office box. Margaret also noted that we may need to do something with the Baseball Association Director position in the near future. An income and expense spreadsheet for the Baseball Recreation program will be available at the next meeting.

 

Christine Abell, asked the Board if they had an objection to making a Facebook account for the Village. This would be another way to reach out to the residents with important reminders or notices. There were no objections to making the account.

           

         Appointment to the Community Center Board was tabled.

           

        Appointment to the Fire Commission was tabled.

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.

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.
