PROCEEDINGS OF THE
VILLAGE BOARD

OF THE VILLAGE OF REESEVILLE

 

 

July 13, 2017


 

A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session July 13, 2017 and called to order by Village President Brian Miller, at 7:00 p.m. The pledge of allegiance was recited.   The following Trustees were present, Chris Behymer, Lee Brasch, Jim Bublitz, Kenneth Leistico and Margaret Schmidt.

           

Notice of this meeting was given to the public at least 24 hours prior to the meeting by forwarding the complete agenda to the official Village newspaper, The Watertown Daily Times, and to all news media that have requested the same, as well as posting.  Copies of the complete agenda were available for inspection at the Village Clerk’s Office.

            Chris Haase was present to give an update on the construction of his new veterinary clinic. He has received state approval of the clinic plans and construction will begin soon. Chris is hoping to have the clinic completed by the end of October, 2017.

           

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

 

The treasurer report of the General Treasury was reviewed by the Board.  Motion by Kenneth Leistico and seconded by Lee Brasch that the Village Treasurer report be approved.  Motion carried.

 

The Treasurer reports of the Sewer and Water Utilities were reviewed by the Board.  Motion by Kenneth Leistico and seconded by Chris Behymer that the Treasurer reports of the Sewer and Water Utilities be approved.  Motion carried.

 

Don Neitzel from Kunkel Engineering was present to give an update of the North Main Lift Station. Construction will begin the next few weeks and should only take a couple of weeks to complete. He also gave an update on the Water Loop and Lincoln Street water main replacement. Plans are wrapping up and we are waiting on funding approval. Easements for the water main loop were obtained. The easements will cross two properties. Both property owners have agreed to the permanent utility easements and they will be compensated. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Kenneth Leistico to approve the easements. Motion carried.

 

Police Chief Scott Bahr was present to give the June police report. Chief Bahr is also still working with the Village Attorney on an on-going property maintenance issue.

 

Fire Chief Nic Gay was present to give the June fire report. Chief Gay attended the WI Fire Chief’s Conference in Green Bay. He noted that the 125th annual Reeseville Corn Roast will be on August 12, 2017. Chief Gay also discussed compensating the fire department’s Training Officer. The Board agreed to allow the Chief to use the department’s budgeted funds as he sees fit.

 

Dean Ziegel was absent and Brian Miller gave the utility update. He also stated that the Dodge County Emergency Management Office upgraded their equipment on the water tower.

 

Brian Miller noted that the Village paid to have a tree removed from a resident’s property and the resident will reimburse the Village. The Village had Becker’s Lawn Care mow a resident’s property and those costs will be billed to the property owner. We-Energies is repairing the sidewalks from the damage done from the old poles being removed.

 

The Board discussed touching up the Welcome signs with new paint and light repairs.

 

 The Board reviewed and discussed a letter of interest submitted for the open Trustee vacancy. Only one letter was received by the Clerk. The deadline for the letters of interest was Monday, July 10, 2017. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Kenneth Leistico to appoint Chris Abell as the new Board Trustee for the rest of the term. Motion carried.

 

A new Operator’s License application was reviewed for Pamela S. Villegas, 315 Lincoln Ave., Reeseville. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to approve the license. Motion carried.

 

Members of the Board will get together to discuss details for the Open House on July 24th on Thursday, July 20th at 4:00 p.m.

 

Jim Bublitz brought to the Board’s attention that the Fire Department’s bills have not been reimbursed by the Village for quite some time. There has been miscommunication and new arrangements have been made to get the Fire Department reimbursed.

 

Jim Bublitz also discussed the Village’s cell phone plan and billing issues. Further discussion has been tabled until the next Board meeting.

 

Representatives from Becker Lawn Care were present to discuss damage to a grave stone and replacing the damaged piece. The representatives and the Board discussed possible causes of the damage. The Board agreed that the dispute is between the stone owner and Becker Lawn Care.

There are no Community Center reports or updates.

Brian Miller gave the Library report.

Margaret Schmidt gave the Recreation Department report. The restrooms in the baseball diamond area are complete. The Port-a-pottys will be removed from the diamond and one will temporarily stay near the park playground.

Appointment to the Fire Commission has been tabled.

 

The Board discussed the reading of the bills procedure. It was requested to have a list of bills printed for each Trustee to review in lieu of reading off each bill. Since this is more of a clerical consideration, there was not a vote.

Jim Bublitz requested that the Village records be kept in one centralized location. It was decided to keep the records in a locked room in the First Responder’s building.

Jim Bublitz also requested an audit of the Village accounts for the last five years. The discussion was tabled until the next Board meeting. 

 

The Clerk discussed the bill paying procedure. The Clerk did research on a different procedure, which includes adopting an ordinance that would grant the Clerk and Treasurer the ability to pay the bills prior to going before the Board. An audit would be required yearly if the new ordinance is adopted. Discussion was tabled until the Finance Committee meets at a later date.The Clerk discussed the accounts payable and payroll programs. The current program is not being utilized to its full capacity and the yearly maintenance and support fees are very high. It was recommended to change the programs to QuickBooks. Further discussion will be done at the next Finance Committee meeting.

The bills were reviewed by the Board.

Motion Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt that the bills be approved and the Clerk and Utility Treasurer be instructed to draw orders for same.  Motion carried.

 

Motion by Kenneth Leistico and seconded by Chris Behymer to adjourn the meeting.  Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 9:13 p.m.

 

Christine Abell, Clerk

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.

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.

Other Compliance
