PROCEEDINGS OF THE VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

September 13, 2018

 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on September 13, 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, Jim Bublitz, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt. 

           

          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 public comments or input.

 

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

The treasurer’s report of the General Treasury was reviewed by the Board.  Motion by Margaret Schmidt 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. The Clerk-Treasurer made a note on the checks approved last month, to USPS. USPS would not accept two checks, one from water and one from sewer to pay the PO Box rental fee. In turn, the two checks were voided and the water utility cut a check for the full amount due and the sewer utility reimbursed the water utility for its share. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Chris Behymer that the Utility Treasurer’s report be approved. Motion carried.

           

           Tammy from Kunkel Engineering Group gave an update on the 2018 utility improvement project. Wood Sewer & Excavating hired Country Services to do the landscaping, which includes spraying for weeds and removal, topsoil and seeding. The project completion deadline is October 26, 2018. The CDBG audit went very well and there should be a letter of “no findings” in approximately a week. The Board commended Tammy for all of her hard work and for the excellent audit by CDBG. The private lead service line replacements will be beginning the first week of October. Scott Lamers Construction will be contacting residents at the end of September to set up appointments. 

     

            President Brian Miller requested that item #17 be moved up after item #7. There were no objections.

           

          Attorney Eric Larson, from Arenz, Molter, Macy, Riffle, Larson & Bitar Municipal Law & Litigation Group, S.C., introduced himself and the firm. The firm and Attorney Larson only represent municipalities and all they do is municipal law. Attorney Larson answered questions from the board. Attorney Larson will be representing the Village on behalf of the law firm. The hourly rate is $199.00 and the Village will be billed monthly. An agenda and minutes for each meeting will be requested to keep on top of the Village issues and to be proactive and monitor any potential red flags. Police Officer Harmsen, discussed problems he encountered with the current legal representation. Brian Miller discussed the current property maintenance issues. Attorney Larson outlined the process that he would follow when property maintenance issues arise. Attorney Larson requested a meeting with Brian Miller, Christine Abell and Chief Bahr, if he is appointed, to discuss current legal issues and cases. 

           

The Board then discussed having two separate attorneys, one for regular municipal representation and one for citations/traffic law. Jim Bublitz contacted Attorney Jackie Wolter about representing the Village for citations/traffic law. Attorney Wolter is willing to work out a payment schedule by either paying by an hourly rate or by paying a yearly salary. 

           

There was a motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to appoint Attorney Larson for general representation, only. Motion carried. 

 

There was a motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Abell to appoint Attorney Wolter for the citations and traffic law. Motion carried. 

     

President Brian Miller requested to move item #9 up on the agenda. There were no objections. 

           

Library Director, Kay Kromm, was present to give the August and September library report. On the August report, which reports for the month of July, the circulation was up by 30% and the stats were discussed. On the September report, which reports for the month of August, circulation was up again, but not as much as July. August is usually a down month for the library, with less programs due to cleaning and getting ready for the fall programs. 

           

Fire Chief Gay was present to give the fire report. Last month, the fire department responded for mutual aid, a vehicle fire, a transformer fire and watched for tornados during the tornado warning. BINGO is going very well the progressive pot has not been hit yet and it up to $856.00. Chief Gay thanked everyone who donated and/or attended the Corn Roast. Chief Gay also thanked Dean for his quick action with a plumbing issue that arose during the corn roast. 

           

Kerry Horton gave an update on the Knox Box Ordinance. The initial meeting was held on August 29th and notices of the next meeting were sent to all business owners. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 25th at 6:30 p.m. 

 

           

Police Chief Bahr was absent, but he prepared a monthly report for the Board. Officer Harmsen, was present to review the report with the Board. In addition to the report, Officer Harmsen noted that there were a couple of underage drinkers at the Corn roast and he gave a brief update on the case with Mr. Bergman. 

           

The Board set the Trick-or-Treat date and time. Trick-or-Treat will be held on October 28th from 3-5 p.m. 

           

Dean Ziegel gave an update on the utilities. In August, there were 11.5 inches of rain which caused equipment failure and flooding. A power outage also caused more issues, including a residence that had sewage backup into their finished basement. An additional pump was needed at the sewer plant and one was loaned to us by Nic Gay. Dean asked the Board for permission to buy another backup pump, which will cost around $1,000. Motion by Chris Behymer and seconded by Jim Bublitz to purchase another backup pump. Dean thanked Nic Gay for allowing the Village to use his pump. Dean gave an update on the plumbing issue that happened during the Corn Roast, at the Community Center. There is a separation in the sewer line that will need to be fixed. The Village has received a notice from Dodge County that the baseball diamond holding tank is out of compliance. There will be a twelve-inch cement pipe installed, to create a riser, which will bring the tank into compliance. 

          

Dean also gave an update on the streets. Scott Lamers Construction will begin the private lead service line replacements the first week of October. 

           

Lee Brasch gave an update on the ATV Ordinance. The Streets & Alleys Committee just met prior to the regular Board meeting. A revised ordinance will be drafted and presented at the Board meeting in October. 

           

A new operator’s license was presented to the Board for Christine Raabe. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Lee Brasch to approve the operator’s license. Motion carried.  

           

The Clerk-Treasurer discussed the old utility treasurer’s documents in Dean’s office. There are approximately 30-40 years’ worth of records to organize. Joan Dykstra has offered to go through all of the documents and requested a pay rate of $10.00 per hour. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to approve Joan Dykstra’s wages to organize the old utility records. Motion carried. 

           

A three-year renewal contract with Grota Appraisals was presented to the Board. The contract would begin July 1,2018 to June 30, 2021. There will be a $200.00 increase in fees. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve the renewal contract. Motion carried. 

 

 The Board set a date for the 2019 budget planning meeting. The meeting is tentatively set for October 18th at 6:30 p.m. 

           

The Clerk-Treasurer gave an update on the TIF districts. A discussion was had with Dave Anderson, the Village’s financial advisor in regard to putting TIF 2 into distressed status and having TIF 3 donate to TIF 2. The option to put TIF 2 into distressed status is very limited. The district is not old enough and we have missed the deadline, which was back in 2015. There is an option to contact the legislators about making an exception for TIF 2. The Board advised the Clerk-Treasurer to contact our attorney for clarification. 

           

Chris Behymer gave an update on the water runoff complaint between GJM Mini Storage and the adjoining properties. Chris met with the neighbors and toured their properties. A Public Health and Welfare Committee meeting was scheduled for September 12th; however, the meeting was canceled at the request of GJM Mini Storage since they were unable to make the meeting. The Clerk-Treasurer was asked to contact Attorney Larson to find out to what extent the Village’s involvement should be in this matter. Discussion was then tabled. 

           

Margaret Schmidt spoke with Advanced Disposal again about the garbage cans being left in the street. Pictures were taken and sent to the manager. The manager will follow up with the driver. 

           

There was nothing to report from the Public Property Committee.

           

Kerry Horton gave an update on the Community Center. The Community Center was recently sprayed to protect against insects/pests. J&K Security did an annual maintenance checkup on the security system and a backup battery was replaced. Kerry noted that mold is becoming a major issue. The Community Center was scrubbed down and cleaned. The HVAC system was recently checked and found to be in working order. The Community Center will purchase two dehumidifies and are looking into obtaining large industrial fans for air movement, to avoid mold issues in the future. 

           

There was nothing further to report for the Recreation Department, other than the holding tank being noncompliant, as noted earlier in the utility report.  

          

Appointment to the Community Center Board was tabled.

          

Appointment to the Fire Commission was tabled.

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.
