DOT Has Highway Landscapers To Replant, Mow In Wausaukee

Issue Date: July 26, 2018

The Village of Wausaukee is making plans for Marinette County Fair, which is to be held this year from Thursday, Aug. 23 through Sunday, Aug. 26. Improving the overall appearance of the village has been a goal of the Village Board for months, and several items related to this goal were discussed at the regular monthly Village Board meeting on Monday, July 11.

During his regular monthly report to the board Village President Hilbert "Slug" Radtke thanked the Fair Board for cutting grass on and around the fairgrounds in a timely fashion this year.

At previous meetings the board had discussed problems with failure of trees, grass and shrubs planted in connection with the downtown beautification portion of the Hwy. 141 reconstruction that was completed last year. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) which financed the beautification, is helping get the issues resolved.

Radtke read an e-mail from WisDOT Project Engineer Paul Romenesko to Highway Landscapers, the firm hired to do the landscaping work, asking them to work up the areas that were seeded and sow new seed as soon as possible. He also asked them to water the new seed at least twice a week until the grass is established, stating that the DOT had agreed to pay for this work.

In addition, Romenesko asked Highway Landscapers to mow or weed whack the existing areas along Main Street which are overrun with weeds. Radtke stated that the Village should not be having to mow those areas while Highway Landscapers is still under contract with the DOT.

Radtke complimented residents on continued efforts to keep their properties clean and maintained; reminded everyone that the village has an ordinance prohibiting parking of any vehicle, trailer, camper, boat, etc., on a Village street for more than 48 hours, and said he would like to see the banners lowered and moved to the inside of the decorative poles on Main Street.

Radtke also commented that the village has been having issues with companies boring in street and utility right-of-way and hitting village culverts, and stressed the importance of proper locating before doing in-ground or underground work.

The agenda had included provisions for the American Legion to discuss repairs to old library building. However, no American Legion representatives were present so the issue was tabled.

Actions taken in preparation for the Fair included approval of a Temporary Class B Retailer's License for the Fair Association for the four days of the Fair; approval of placement of "No Parking" signs on Fairgrounds Road and Cedar Street during the fair, and, in response to a request from the Fair Board, authorization for Public Works Director Dennis Whitton to sweep walkways in the fairgrounds.

Radtke had called the meeting to order at 6 p.m. Trustees present were Joleen Christ, Kyle Stumbris, Mack McKim, Ray Gordon, Randy Schmidt and Pat Tracy. No one was absent. Also present were Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen, Deputy Clerk/ Treasurer Barb Pociask, Public Works Supervisor Dennis Whitton, Jr., Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Operator Jeff Mayou, WWTP Operator In Training Tylor Stumbris, Sharon Kantner, and Joellen Simpson.

President Radtke commented that the Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, July 7 was well attended, and said the parade and fireworks were excellent this year. He informed the board that the village reached its funding goal for fireworks this year, and extended thanks to those who donated.He asked the community to show their appreciation by donating to the fireworks fund for next year.

Sharon Kantner of Northwoods Traditions was present to discuss a drainage issue in alley behind her store. Streets and Drainage CommitteeChair Randy Schmidt, said they had met behind Kantner's store that afternoon to evaluate the drainage issues in the alley. In addition to Schmidt, those present were committee members Gordon and McKim; Radtke; Pullen, and Whitton. They gathered at the village hall and then relocated the meeting to the alley behind Family Dollar, immediately west of Main Street. Once on the site, land owners Pete Lund and Sharon Kantner joined the discussion.

The group watched a video recorded by Kantner showing the water flow and drainage issue during the last heavy rain storm. After evaluating several options, the Committee recommended several actions to try to correct the drainage issues:

They include grading the west side of the alley at an angle running away from the road to divert the water flow; installing a speed bump behind Family Dollar running from northeast to southwest starting at the north edge of the loading dock; installing a depression in the alley south of the Lund house; installing a second speed bump south of the depression, and installing a ditch along the Lund property to the existing culvert on Highway 141.

If these corrective actions do not fix the drainage issue, the committee will recommend installing an additional catch basin and 10-inch culvert running approximately 60 feet to the south starting from the south edge of the Kantner property.

At the 6 p.m. meeting of the full Village Board McKim, with a second from Gordon, moved to accept the Streets Committee recommendations as listed and the motion was approved without dissent.

The village had previously agreed to apply to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for a grant that would allow the village to purchase a front-end loader. After discussion at Monday night's meeting the board agreed without dissent to withdraw that application and instead go forward with a new USDA grant application for a new F-550 truck including a plow with wing attachment and a sanding unit, as well as a scissors lift attachment and sanding unit for the Bobcat. Details must be brought to the Finance Committee for approval. Final approval of the application will be made by the full Board before it is submitted.

The Board reviewed the Street Report as presented by Dennis Whitton, Jr, and the Utility Report as presented by Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator Jeff Mayou.

Mayou was authorized to attend the Wastewater Operator's Association Annual Conference from October 16 through Oct. 19 in Lake Geneva.

All bills were approved for payment, including a $175 overage for safety equipment from Industrial Safety, LLC. Motion carried.

The Board reviewed the Treasurer's Report as presented by Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen.

A proposal to purchase e-billing interface for Quikwater was discussed and referred to the Water and Sewer Committee to be discussed during budget talks.

A resolution updating the board's public depositories policy was approved. The action removes the name of Bank North as an official depository for the village and adds Nicolet National Bank. Bank North was purchased some time ago by Stephenson National Bank and Trust, which remains an official depository for the village.

Bid from Countrystyle Propane to supply propane to the village for the 2018-2019 contract price of $1.10 per gallon for 14,000 gallons was approved.

A meeting of the village's Building, parks and Grounds Committee is scheduled for 3 p.m.Wednesday, July 25 to discuss future plans for the Stephenson National Bank building at 704 Main Street. Committee members, Friends of the Library, and SNBT President Dan Peterson are expected to participate in the discussion.
