Mayou is Full Time WWTP Operator

Issue Date: April 26, 2018

During the Village of Wausaukee board meeting on April 18, Darryll Schmidt asked if the American Legion could use the Village Hall for their meetings. Clerk Sara Pullen instructed him to call the office to schedule the use of the hall.

Among the many residents who were in attendance at the meeting, three expressed opposition to the proposed upgrades in Evergreen Park and Campground. They offered support of the plan to replace well #1 which was shut down in April of 2017 for exceeding maximum nitrate levels.

During a previous discussion, Wausaukee Rescue Squad had requested a short-term lending agreement with the Village for $60,000. Tom Arthur, Wausaukee Rescue Squad, called the Clerk's office earlier in the day to withdraw his request for a lending agreement with the Village stating arrangements have been made with their bank.

Discussion took place regarding Kim Marsolek, Wausaukee Business Association, to update the Board on recent activities and upcoming farmer's market. Marsolek stated that WBA is working to secure membership in the Connect Communities " a program dedicated to support downtown community development in the state of Wisconsin. She continued that Connect Communities can assist in securing grants, housing development, and attracting industry. The WBA will be notified on May 11th whether or not their application was accepted. Marsolek stated the WBA has been active in hosting community activities such as winter fest and an Easter egg hunt. They would like to sponsor a Village-wide rummage sale on Memorial Day weekend, and possible activities in the alley behind SNBT during the 4th of July celebration. The WBA will again host a Farmer's Market this summer; location and starting date are to be determined.

State Representative Jeff Mursau addressed the Board and provided updates at the state level including an innovative company that creates fuel from recycled chip bags, and the passage of an industrial hemp bill. He also mentioned that Village may want to consider the BCPL State Trust Fund Loan Program for upcoming projects adding that the application process is extremely simple, and the interest rates are low.

In regard to the Wausaukee Plan Commission, Ruth Jicha stated that the WPC has been working on compiling a list of both blighted and unsightly properties. She stated she will work with Pullen to remove anyone that has already received a letter from the Village regarding excessive junk accumulation and have a recommendation for the Board at the next meeting.

Park's Committee made a recommendation to submit the Stewardship Local Assistance, Federal Land & Water Conservation Fund, & Recreational Trails Program Grant Application. A motion was made to postpone the submission of the grant application for the improvements in Evergreen Park due to the following reasons:

1. The Board does not know what the cost of the new well will be and what the final cost to the Water and Sewer Utility is at this time.

2. There has been little financial planning for a new fire truck which the Wausaukee Fire Department plans to purchase in 2025, which may have a cost to the Village taxpayers of an additional $150,000 if not more.

3. The improvements to Evergreen Park are not emergency improvements. The grant can be applied for in 2019 or 2020 after monetary financial planning for other projects has been resolved.

4. The Village Board should put their efforts into researching and developing additional housing in the Village, which will bring more users to the Water and Sewer Utility and additional tax revenue.

5. Such improvements to Evergreen Park with the possible cost of $300,000 to the local taxpayers should be addressed to the electors of the Village for their approval. A question should be put to the general electors in November for approval for such an expenditure. It was determined that Joleen Christ erroneous made a motion, when in fact she only intended to state her opinion for the record. The motion was withdrawn.

A motion was made to submit the Stewardship Local Assistance, Federal Land & Water Conservation Fund, & Recreational Trails Program Grant Application. A roll call vote was performed. Christ, no; McKim, yes; Radtke, yes; Gordon, yes; Schmidt, no; and Tracy, yes. Motion carried.

A recommendation was made to approve Resolution 2018-03: An Authorizing Resolution for Outdoor Recreation Grant Application with a change in the third paragraph amending "budgeted a sum' to read "secured a line of credit.' A roll call vote was performed. Motion carried.

During his report, President Radtke addressed all those in attendance regarding the winter storm over the weekend. He stated that a snow emergency was declared County wide, and everyone was ordered not to be on the roads. Thus, he instructed his plow drivers not to begin plowing until the storm subsided, unless there was an emergency. Radtke added that plowing this time of year is very difficult as the frost is out of the ground, and significant damage is likely to unpaved alleys and shoulders.

Municipal Treasurers Appreciation Week Proclamation " Radtke recognized the week of April 15-21 as Municipal Treasurer's Appreciation Week and extended his thanks to Pullen and Pociask.

Some important dates/items to keep in mind: Open Book will be held on Tuesday, May 22nd from 10: a.m. " noon.
