Pound To Settle Village Paving Issues In July

The Village of Pound is set to go with its annual Firemen's Picnic on Friday and Saturday, June 16 and 17, and the Car Show on Saturday, June 24. The Fireman's Picnic includes fireworks Saturday night, plus fun at the park including food, drink, children's games, a magic show and more on Friday and Saturday.

Fire Chief Turner Gross reported at the Village Board meeting on Monday, June 11 that everything is set up and ready to go for the picnic, and the department's other fund raiser is doing well. There was a $4,500 donation to replace the engine in the heavy rescue vehicle.

Gross said the department responded to one motor vehicle accident and one structure fire in the past month. The state inspection found the department to be in compliance with all state regulations. Certain air tanks had gone in for hydro testing, and fire hydrants were tested and found to be in good working order.

After a long discussion on an agenda item listed as review of the street construction standards policy, Village President Terry Earley declared there should be more discussion and possible action at the board's July meeting, in order to give members of the public a chance to make their wishes known before the board takes action, and be present at the meeting if they want to speak.

The issue centers on requiring curb and gutter whenever there is street reconstruction or reconstruction in the village, and putting asphalt aprons into driveways whenever and wherever streets are built or rebuilt. Adjoining property owners apparently will be billed for installation of curb and gutter, which Public Works Director Kevin Schutte said defines the roadway, improves drainage, and help pavement last longer. He said they will put in curb and gutter whenever they repave, or whenever they replace water and sewer.

Earley said some residents are adamantly against the mandatory apron paving, and he also opposes it.

There is also is opposition to mandatory curb and gutter. A resident whose property is affected told Earley he wants to put in a concrete apron and driveway, and if the village proceeds with the asphalt apron he will need to have that removed before he can put the concrete in.

"Are we changing the policy or what?" Public Works Director Schutte asked when the item came up on the agenda. He said without the aprons the gravel gets scattered onto the sidewalks and the new pavement whenever someone pulls in or out of the driveway.

There appears to be no written policy. Kevin Schutte argued strongly in favor of the mandatory asphalt aprons. Earley said he had been in favor before talking with the property owner on Memorial Drive. Earley said he had watched gravel wash down during a rain storm, and an apron would not have helped that at all.

Schutte said current policy is if it's gravel, they pave the apron with asphalt, and if it is concrete they pave it with concrete.

"If it's policy, I'd like to see it," Earley declared.

Kevin Schutte and Clerk/Treasurer Trish Schutte both said it was a verbal policy that was never written.

"The land owner should have the say over his own driveway, Earley declared. He also asked why the village plows snow off some sidewalks in the village and not others, and said he does not know of any other village that handles snow removal from sidewalks. Kevin Schutte said he plows the sidewalks he can, which are mainly those in business areas, but he cannot use the village equipment on sidewalks that are broken and heaved up, so there the property owners have to shovel. He said the City of Green Bay plows all commercial property sidewalks, while residents must shovel their own.

Trustee David Navis asked if Schutte plans to plow the walks along County Q once they are re-built, and Schutte said he does. Trish Schutte said there had been a formally approved board motion on the curb and gutter issue.

Navis said to alleviate future stress, the board should take formal action on the policies, and it was informally agreed the issues will be on the agenda for the July board meeting.

Earley said he wants to work with people in the community instead of making them angry, "I think this is something the public needs to know about in advance so they can talk to the board."

There had already been long discussion on possible purchase a new commercial lawn mower from Reisterer and Schnell for $19,000 to $20,000 as recommended by Schutte, repairs to the village's Ford diesel truck, and enforcement of property maintenance issues at 105 and 109 Colburn Street.

In other business, the board agreed not to pursue the idea of entering into a joint Municipal Court venture with the Village of Coleman and Town of Pound; approved a developer's agreement with DEI/Genesis (formerly known as Dairyland) for their business property in the village's industrial park; was informed by Kevin Schutte that work on the Memorial Drive Street project is pretty much done except for grass planting, which the village does.

The board approved a contract with Bay lakes Regional Planning for $795 for remaining work on development of the Village's GIS map. The first 20 hours of work were covered by a grant. The contract with Bay Lakes includes four hours of training for village personnel on use of the map. The cost will be mostly covered by return of a $500 contribution the village had made to Marinette County Association for Business (MCABI) for work on the Gold Shovel listing, which was done gratis as a service of MCABI.

Kevin Schutte is to get more price quotes on a John Deere commercial mower, and get the truck repaired by Mike Kudick in Coleman.

Because one of the furnaces in the Village Rec Center is broken the board approved purchase of a new one from Thune Heating and Cooling for their price quote of $3,369, installed. Board members were told there were no other price quotes obtained. The old furnace was about 30 years old when it burned out four months ago.
