Coleman Fire Dept. Meat Raffle April 8

Issue Date: April 5, 2018

The United Co-op fertilizer plant is planning an expansion, President Glenn Woulf told the Coleman Village Board at its monthly meeting Monday, April 2. He said they will be closing down on July 9 to allow for construction of a facility that will be two or three times larger. "This is good news for us and for our TIF District," Woulf declared.

Woulf also announced that Spring Clean Up Day will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 12.

Trustee David Podoski, as chair of the Public Safety and Personnel Committee, reported that the Coleman Fire Department's meat raffle fund raiser will be held on Sunday, April 8 starting at 1 p.m. at Fortier's Bar.

The board approved an operator's license for Kyle Berg, who Trustee Jeff Gosa said will be taking over as the new owner of Fortier's Bar (formerly Furkee's), as of Sunday, April 15. "I wish him a lot of luck," Gosa declared. They also approved an operator's license for Bailey McNabb,who will be working at Cougar Shell.

Trustee Tim Gould, who chairs the Public Welfare and Recreation Committee, reported that sign-up for T-Ball will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 7 at the Coleman Village Park and ball fields.

Gould said the American Legion is building new memorial at Lillian Park, which is located on the banks of the Little Peshtigo River adjacent to Business 141 on the north edge of the village. The army tank will also be moved there, but placed so it is not adjacent to the children's playground. Woulf said the tank is being spruced up, and may be in the 4th of July parade. He added that the Legion hopes to have the memorial completed in time for dedication by the 4th of July. Much of the work and materials for the memorial are being donated. Woulf said based on the plans, "it will be a very attractive thing, with lots of landscaping around it"nice for the Legion and nice for the community!"

At the start of the meeting Woulf introduced Ken Holdorf, who is challenging incumbent John Nygren for the position of 89th District Representative on the Wisconsin State Assembly in the elections this fall. Holdorf's presentation of his platform for the 89th Assembly was the first item on the meeting agenda under "New Business."

Holdorf said he is running for the Assembly position ''Because I believe it is time for a leader who will listen to their constituent's concerns, a leader who comes to town and village board meetings."

Without mentioning Nygren by name, Holdorf said his big point in deciding to run was that the incumbent voted to repeal the law that protected Wisconsin from the effects of sulfide mining. He said that issue may or may not affect Coleman, but it will affect at least two areas in northern Wisconsin, one of them being Marathon County.

He said the Back Forty mine is the big issue here, and the Menominee River flows from there down to Title Town. The proposed mine is in Michigan, but he felt there are things Wisconsin legislators could have done to oppose it. He said groundwater in Marinette County is already affected by fluoride.

Holdorf said he is a 20-year Navy Veteran and was very active with the Kenosha School Board before moving to Marinette. Support for public education is another of his big issues. Holdorf said he is very concerned about school financing under Gov. Walker, and cuts have affected everything from the UW system through K-12 schools. Recently there has been much news about increases to school aids,but the amount of the increases doesn't' even come close to the amount of prior cuts, "from Act 10 forward." He said after the meeting he was not referring to the effect of Act 10 on public employee unions, but to amount cut from education budgets.

He said as a veteran he strongly supports programs to benefit veterans, particularly the homeless.

He also expressed support for family farms. He said in the 1700s his great great grandparents moved to the family's Iowa farm, which one of his brothers still owns. He is concerned that family farms are being displaced by the big corporate farms, and said last year western Wisconsin led the nation in farm related bankruptcies.

He admitted he doesn't know how to fix the health care system, but asked, "Who doesn't want affordable health care?" He had been shocked to learn that under the current program some families are faced with $3,000 deductibles, and others are forced into bankruptcy by poor health.

He repeated his intention to attend as many board meetings as possible of municipalities in his district if he is elected.

"We will see you at least once every two years?" Woulf asked, adding, "The one in office now has never been here."

Holdorf repeated his intention is to attend board meetings. "I want to stay as updated as I can with the concerns of the local leaders, and you people are the local leaders." He said it is very easy for concerns of small communities to be forgotten.

There was no formal report from the Public Works committee, but Woulf expects bids soon for work on Meadowood.

Podoski reported the fire department had four calls in March, but none for an actual fire. One of the calls was for a rollover, one was to redirect traffic for police, one was cancelled while firefighters were enroute, and one that was called in by someone passing by on the highway but no fire could be found. Firefighters put in 130 hours for the month. Training in March was on the new "piercing" nozzle purchased with money from donations and fundraisers.

The Coleman Police Department responded to 14 complaints in March. There were 10 citations issued to adults, for fines totaling $1,415. No juvenile citations were reported. Police Chief Ida Soletske reported 174.25 hours for the month.

For Coleman/Pound Municipal Court in March there were two just cause hearings, eight adult hearings and no juvenile cases. Katie Torres had 95.75 hours for the month.

Building permits were issued to Jesse Parker for remodeling the kitchen at 323 Maple Lane for $20,000; Tom Behnke for reroofing the garage at 122 Zelia Street for $5,000; Mark Metzler, to remodel the house at 117 Zelia Street; Shane Gould, remodel the kitchen at 328 Sunset Ave. for $15,000; David Argall, reroofing at 227 Hammes Street for $4,200, and Amy Heinze, for new windows at 145 Business 141 S. for $10,000.

Treasurer's report by Trustee Dianne Patz, co-chair of the Finance and Budget Committee, showed the village had a total of $756,314.39 on hand in all accounts as of March 31, compared with $786,783.03 at the end of February. Disbursements for March totaled $41,739.26.

Building Inspector/Public Works Director Dennis Gross reported he extended the permit for 109 N. Park, gave a citation for violations of the Wisconsin Building Code at 115 N. park, gave a warning for an unlicensed dog and dog feces at 236 W. Main, and gave a warning on appearance of garage at 220 W. Main.
