PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD OF
THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

May 10, 2018

 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on May 10, 2018 and called to order by Village President, Brian Miller, at 6:31 p.m. The pledge of allegiance was recited.  The following Trustees were present, Chris Abell, Chris Behymer, Jim Bublitz, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt. 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’s Office.

               

There was no one present for public comment or input. However, a resident who wished to speak at public comment was running late. Public comments and input was tabled until their arrival.

 

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 of the special meeting were sent to all Board members and posted. Motion by Chris Behymer and

seconded by Chris Abell that the special 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 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 the engineer update. An update on the Main Street lift station was given. Rennhack Construction poured the concrete pad needed to complete the project. There is minor restoration needing to be done, which needs to be completed by June 5th

 

Tammy also gave an update on the 2018 utility improvement project. Tammy read a report from Alex Williams who has been overseeing the project. Wood Sewer is currently working the sanitary sewer lines and after completion, two crews will begin the water main portion of the project and they’ll also begin working under the railroad tracks. There have been delays in the project due to the bad weather and soil conditions. 

 

Tammy discussed the finalized ordinance for replacement of private lead water laterals. The Clerk and Tammy have done extensive research on lead service line replacements. The Clerk found that making the replacement as a special charge versus a special assessment, would eliminate the need for multiple resolutions, hearings and there would not be a delay in the adoption of the ordinance. This would also save the Village money in the long run. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Abell to adopt Ordinance A-108 Adding Section 9-151 “Replacement of Private Lead Water Laterals”. Motion carried. 

 

The Board reviewed the private lead service line replacement quotes from Scott Lamers Construction, LLC and Wood Sewer & Excavating Inc. The Board agreed that the quote from Scott Lamers Construction was more favorable. Motion by Chris Behymer and seconded by Kerry Horton to award the private lead service line replacement contract to Scott Lamers Construction, LLC. Motion carried. 

 

Mike Miescher was present for public comments. Mike noted that utility improvement construction has been beginning early at 6 a.m. Mike was wondering if it was possible to have the crews begin later. Brian Miller stated that the construction crews had permission to work four, twelve-hour days in order to get the project done quickly. Mike reiterated that the noise has been a problem and is waking his young children. The board agreed that the noise was something that was only temporary, but the hours were necessary to get the work done promptly. There was no further discussion. 

 

Police Chief Bahr was present to give the monthly police report.  The tires were rotated on the police car and the oil was changed. The calls for the month include theft, warrant apprehension, assisting the county, check welfare, extra patrol for suspicious activity and mutual aid for an accident. There was a brief discussion on the Bergman legal case. Margaret also stated that the Village should also peruse clean-up of other properties, that are in a similar situation as the Bergman property. Chief Bahr noted that contact has been made with the other property owners in question. Jim Bublitz asked Chief Bahr to have extra presence on Main Street near the vet clinic, bank and post office. There have been a lot of illegal U-turns made in that area. Chief Bahr will notify the other officers and they will keep a closer eye on that area. 

 

Fire Chief Gay was present to give the monthly fire report.  Calls for the month included a carbon monoxide alarm in Clyman, mutual aid to Beaver Dam for a structure fire, a grass fire in Reeseville, mutual aid to Beaver Dam for a marsh fire, a chimney fire in Reeseville, a grass fire in Clyman, a tree fire in Reeseville, a motor vehicle accident in Clyman and a field fire in the Village of Lowell. The fire department is already at 31 calls for the year and they will likely surpass the total calls for 2017, by the end of May. BINGO will be held on Mother’s Day. The progressive pot could reach $2,500. 

                    The First Responder By-Laws have been recently revised and the final draft was not available.  Action was
         tabled until the next Board meeting. 

Margaret Schmidt gave an update on the First Responders. They have also been very busy and are up to 35 calls for the year so far. The last six months have been busier than all of 2017. Margaret gave an update on the new recruits. There are two who are about to finish class, one who many not pass the test and the fourth may not join the First Responders after they finish their classes. There will be a brat fry on June 16th from 9am to 1pm at the Lowell Fire Station. 

               

          Jim Bublitz motioned to skip to item thirteen on the agenda, Personnel and Finance Committee. There were no objections.

 

The Clerk discussed the loan options for funding of lead service line replacement costs. The Clerk received an updated proposal from the State Bank of Reeseville. The proposal changed the term to 5 years and was revised to a 4% variable interest rate. The previous proposal was a 10-year term at 4.5% variable rate. The Clerk suggested getting the loan from the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands (BCPL), instead. The current interest rates with BCPL is at 4%, fixed rate, with a 5-year term. The only concern the Clerk had, was not knowing if the funds would be available on-time to pay Scott Lamers Construction for the private lead service line replacements. Tammy Hampton noted that the funds will likely be received before a payout was needed to Scott Lamers Construction. In the event that the money did not arrive in time, the Reeseville Utilities could bear the cost and in turn be reimbursed when the loan proceeds arrive.  Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Abell to apply for a loan with the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands. Motion carried. There was no discussion on the resolution for temporary borrowing from the State Bank of Reeseville, as the Board decided to borrow from BCPL instead.

 

The Board reviewed and discussed the proposed Ordinance A-109 Recreating Section 7-1-19 “Limitation on Number of Dogs” and the corresponding “Additional Dog Agreement”. The revised ordinance, states that if the police department receives two formal written complaints, within a four-week period, that are made in regard to the number of dogs on the property, the owner would have to reduce the number of dogs, to two. The current ordinance states that if the police department gets one complaint, the number of dogs would have to be reduced to two, per residence. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer to adopt Ordinance A-109 Recreating Section 71-19 “Limitation on Number of Dogs”. Motion carried.

               

            The Clerk discussed a disbursement from TIF #3 district, to Caine Warehousing, for their 2016 share. Caine Warehousing satisfied their agreement with the Village and executed water and sewer easement agreements. The total 2016 share was $28,469.48. No action was needed by the Board. 

 

The Board went back to item ten on the agenda, Library updates. 

 

Library Director, Kay Kromm, was present to give the monthly report. Circulation went up last month in comparison to last year at this time. The number of patrons is consistent with last year. Seven patrons took the Gale Courses. These courses can actually be transferred as college credits. The Gale Courses are free to patrons, all you need is a library card. Kay discussed the library programs; the summer programs will begin soon when the kids are out of school. The outstanding fines, as discussed at the last board meeting, was brought up for discussion again. Kay noted that the figure includes items that were never retuned in the last two years. Chief Bahr tries to make contact with the patrons of past due library materials. Many times, the patron has moved and took the library items with them. Jim Bublitz made a recommendation to find a volunteer group to clean up the landscaping around the library. Chief Bahr also recommended looking into Walmart Distribution, who also have volunteer groups. Kay will look into her options.

 

Dean Ziegel was present to give an update on the utilities. After the substantial amount of rainfall, the sewer plant went down. Gary Kohn and Nic Gay helped Dean get the sewer plant back up and running. Dean thanked Gary and Nic for their help. The DNR will be doing an inspection of the water department. This is done every three years and Dean does not anticipate any problems. Jim asked Dean if the sewer plant will need to be expanded in the near future. Dean noted that the main to the lagoons would need to be replaced in order to avoid problems in the future. The sewer plant is currently running well and expansion is not needed at this time, but eventually it should be done in the future. Dean also touched base on the phosphorus removal. The removal process is going well and our levels are within range with the DNR’s standards. 

 

Dean gave the report on the streets and alleys. The streets were cleaned on May 1st. The potholes should be filled soon, there has been delay in getting them filled, due to the weather. 

 

The Board proceeded with item fourteen on the agenda. 

 

Margaret Schmidt gave an update on property maintenance and touched base on Mr. Bergman’s property and progress has been made in the clean-up effort.  Advanced Disposal didn’t pick up the large items in front of his property. Margaret has been in contact with Advanced Disposal and is trying to get the items picked up.  Margaret also noted that Corey’s Lawn Care has been doing a good job mowing the cemetery and baseball field.  

There was nothing to report on for the Public Property Committee. Dean noted that the water was turned on at the baseball field. 

 

There was no report for the Community Center. 

 

Margaret gave a report on the recreation department. A break down on the number of kids registered from each municipality was handed out. The registration numbers are down and they are thinking of ways to save on costs. They are considering a shorter bus and are looking into other options for swimming lessons. 

 

Brian Miller made the following appointments and designations:

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.
