PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

March 8, 2018

 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on March 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, Lee Brasch, Jim Bublitz, Kenneth Leistico and Margaret Schmidt. Trustee Chris Behymer 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.

 

                Kathryn and Joe Jakel were present for public comments. Kathryn is asking the board to revise the additional dog agreement. The additional dog agreement is a requirement for licensing more than two dogs per residence. Brian Miller stated that the ordinance and additional dog agreement took a couple of years to establish and a lawyer had reviewed it prior to the changes being adopted. The subject was not on the agenda and will be added to the agenda for the next board meeting, for further discussion. Discussion was tabled.

 

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

 

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

 

Tammy Hampton from Kunkel Engineering was present to give the engineer’s update. Our goal is to close on the loans with the DNR by May 9th. A special meeting on April 25th will be required to execute the financial assistance agreement. The meeting must be exactly two weeks prior to the DNR closing date. Having the closing date of May 9th, would help the village avoid having to take out interim financing for the utility projects. A special meeting date was set for April 25th at 5:00 p.m. Tammy suggested having a meeting to discuss ordinances in regard to lead service lines and options on proceeding with the ordinance. Tammy also suggested having the village attorney attend the meeting. It was also recommended to hold a public informational meeting about the utility construction projects. There will also need to be a pre-construction meeting the first week of April with the contractor. Margaret Schmidt asked about parking and if there will be arrangements made for residents to access the street. Margaret also asked if there will be notice when or if the water is turned off. Tammy will have Don Neitzel get in contact with Margaret to discuss the details.

 

Brian Miller asked the board if there were any objections to jumping to item fourteen on the agenda. The board had no objections and moved to item fourteen. 

 

A letter of intent notification was received from Dodge County in regard to the division of land for Nathalie Schumann, on County Highway G. The board had no recommendations. Motion by Kenneth Leistico and seconded by Chris Abell that there were no recommendations for the letter of intent. Motion carried.

 

The Board discussed the Order of Assessment from the Drainage District. The clerk wrote to the Drainage board asking to withhold payment until the 2019 budget was worked out. The Drainage Board denied the request and payment must be made by May 1st to avoid penalty interest charges. Motion by Kenneth Leistico and seconded by Chris Abell to approve the release of payment to the Drainage District. Motion carried.

 

Chris Abell discussed the law mowing bids received. The board reviewed a spreadsheet listing the bids side by side. Bids were received from Cory’s Lawn & Snow Service, Keach’s Lawn Service, Country Tree Service & Lawn Care LLC and Viking Brother’s LLC. Cory was present from Cory’s Lawn & Snow Service for any questions. Margaret Schmidt asked Cory if his company would be able to take care both the cemetery and baseball field. Cory didn’t foresee any issues and his company can get the mowing done in timely manner. Cory’s bid pricing is good for three years. Motion by Kenneth Leistico and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to award a three-year mowing contract to Cory’s Lawn & Snow Service for the 2018, 2019 & 2020 seasons.  Motion carried.

 

Brian Miller spoke with the lawyer used by the township in regard to the partition fence viewing issue. The lawyer was going to look into the issue and get back to Brian at a later date. No further update was available.

 

The board jumped back to item nine on the agenda.

 

Police Chief Bahr was absent, but he left a monthly report for the board to review. Kenneth Leistico recommended that a camera should be installed in the area of the bank, post office and vet clinic There seems to be a lot of illegal U-turns happening in that area. Discussion was tabled on the camera. Jim Bublitz noted that there has been increased Saturday night police coverage.

 

Fire Chief Gay was present to give the fire department report. In February the department responded to the following calls; a snowmobile accident in the Township of Clyman, a mutual aid request in Watertown, a motor vehicle accident in the township of Clyman and mutual aid call in Waterloo. BINGO is being held this coming Sunday and the progressive pot is over $1,000. Chief Gay thanked the Community Center for all their help.

 

The clerk is working on the PSC water rate increase application, which was originally a requirement for the DNR grants and loans. The water rate increase is no long a requirement; however, the application is nearly done and it has been almost 20 years since the last rate increase. The clerk asked the board for their opinions on the following possible changes. The current late charges are being manually calculated at 1% for every month that the bill is past due, up to 3%. We have the option to keep it the same or change the late charge to a one-time fee of 3%.  The board agreed to charging the one-time 3% fee. The clerk also discussed charging for a final meter read for real estate closings. Jim Bublitz recommended a $30 fee for real estate closing, final meter reads. The board agreed to the $30 charge. The board also discussed the water block billing rates. Currently the block rates are designed as a declining rate. The board decided to change the block rating to be a uniform rate, in an effort to promote conservation of water.

 

Dean Ziegel gave an update on the utilities. The Prairie Street lift station failed twice the last month. It has since been fixed and is up and running again. There was a power failure last month on the northeast side of town. We-Energies said they had equipment failure and power was back on two hours later. Dean will be attending state mandated schooling at the end of March.

 

Dean also gave an update on the streets and alleys. Dean received a call about a downed tree branch on Lincoln Ave. The limb was cleaned up and removed. The snow removal is going really well and the streets look good.

 

Jim Bublitz discussed Resolution 4-2018 “Amended Signature Resolution” changing the signers on the village’s financial accounts. The passing of Resolution 4-2018 would repeal Resolution 3-2018, which was recently passed on March 1st. The bank rejected Resolution 3-2018 and Resolution 4-2018 makes the necessary changes. The village accounts will have two signers, Brian Miller, Village President and Christine Abell, Clerk-Treasurer. The utility accounts will also have two signers, Brian Miller, Village President and Christine Abell Clerk-Treasurer & Utility Treasurer. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Kenneth Leistico to pass Resolution 4-2018. Motion carried.

 

Jim Bublitz discussed the option of switching phone companies from TDS to Charter. Jim got a quote from Charter for their phone services and it would save the village $12 per phone line. There is a large up-front cost for installation and it would take a year or more to recoup the benefits. The board agreed to stay with TDS and no further action was taken.

 

Margaret Schmidt didn’t have much to report on public health and welfare. Margaret was contacted by a resident whose garbage wasn’t picked up. The issue was resolved the same day. Dean Ziegel stated that there has been some large item trash that has been getting missed as well. Margaret also noted that there seems to be many residents leaving their garbage out too early and a reminder that those residents could be cited for that.

 

Kenneth Leistico gave an update on the Community Center. The last fish and chicken dinner of the season is this coming Friday and they are hoping for a big turnout. The Community Center will be looking into changing the rental contract and prices. Kenneth noted that BINGO has been going really well.

 

Library Director, Kay Kromm, was present to give the library report. Kay reviewed the 2017 statistics. The library has been offering more internet programs and courses, which seems to be going over well with the library patrons. Kay thanked all the volunteers that the library has had over the year, especially Janet Brown who was the number one volunteer for the year.  Brian Miller notated that the patron door needs to be rekeyed and Dean Ziegel will take care of it.

 

Margaret Schmidt reported on the recreation department. There isn’t much to report on, however, registration is now open and there should be information going out to the kids in the community.  Dean Ziegel mentioned that the porta-pottys for the park will be delivered in early April.

 

Brian Miller discussed further legal representation options. Brian called the legal counsel for the township as a possible option. However, they will not sit down with us until the board has decided to part with our current legal counsel. Brian was unable to get rates until the board sits down with new attorney. The hope is to get legal counsel who specializes in municipality representation. Brian will try to get the attorney to attend the next board meeting.

 

Future agenda items were discussed.

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.

Definitions

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.

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.

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.
