THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Village Policy for Employees Sick Time
Issue Date: February 28, 2019
Wausaukee-Wausaukee Village President Slug Radtke alerted residents to damage that can occur from excess snow load and ice dams on their roofs.
He extended his appreciation to employees who have been working diligently on plowing, sanding, and removing snow from intersections. He also thanked Darryll Schmidt for assisting with snow removal.
Radtke also reminded residents to keep fire hydrants nearest their homes free and clear of snow, noting a house fire doubles in size every two minutes.
He stressed snow removal from sidewalks is the responsibility of the property owner abutting the sidewalk. It is illegal to pile snow on any public sidewalk or right-of-way, he stated.
Board members reviewed the Wausaukee Fire District quarterly report. They adopted Resolution 2019-01 authorizing the submission of a CDBG Planning Grant Application and Resolution 2019-02 to Commit Matching Funds.
Members discussed quote for snow removal but no action was taken. Sick leave for full-time employees will be granted 40 hours of sick time per calendar year to full-time employees retroactive to Jan. 1, 2019. Sick time may be used in increments of one hour. Sick time will not accrue, and unused time will not be paid out at year end.
Radtke called the meeting to order at 6 pm with trustees present were Kyle Stumbris, Mack McKim, Randy Schmidt, and Pat Tracy. Also present were Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen, Public Works Supervisor Dennis Whitton, Jr., WWTP OIC Jeff Mayou, WWTP OIT Tylor Stumbris, Joellen Simpson, Pat Brien, JoAnn Polomis, and Darryll Schmidt.
Following the Pledge of Allegiance the agenda was approved as well as minutes of regular meeting and committees. Stumbris stated that a resident expressed concern over excess snow and ice accumulation on the roof of a lean-to connected to Mosher's Auto. The resident is afraid that if the snow/ice comes off that roof, it's going to damage her siding since the two buildings are so close together. Radtke suggested the resident try and resolve things by speaking with Mosher directly before taking any action with the Village.
Tracy stated that the snow piles on the east side of the intersection of Van Buren and Main Street are creating a visual hazard, and asked Whitton to take care of the situation.
Village Street, Utility reports, bills and Treasurer's report were approved.
The Parks Committee finalized plans for the pavilion expansion, electrical upgrades, water/sewer lines, bathroom/shower facility, fishing platform, and overflow/visitor parking lot. Trista Hobbs, U.P. Engineers, will submit the amended plans to the electrical and HCAV engineers for finalization.
The Wausaukee Planning Commission adopted zoning amendments to comply with new statutory requirements as recommended by the WPC.
The Board convened to closed session for consideration of granting an operator's license to Amber Norquist.
Members reconvened in open session to consider follow-up to closed session and as a result of closed session, McKim made a motion seconded by Stumbris to deny Norquist's application for an operator's license based on the applicant's arrest and conviction record over the last five years.
