Pembine Committee Aasks Residents to Recycle More

Issue Date: May 22, 2019

The regular Town of Pound board monthly meeting was called to order by Chairman Bole at 6:30 pm on Tuesday May 14. Present were Chairman Bole, Supervisor Czahor, Supervisor Newingham, Clerk/Treasurer Allen and 12 citizens were present. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Bole reported the Road Tour held on May 2, to discuss some of the roads that are in desperate need of repair. He will meet with a representative from Scott Construction to go over the roads that were visited during the tour to get a better estimate of cost to repair. Some roads need the cul-du-sacs expanded to put snow and for the plows to turn around on. Letters will be mailed to residents on any roads the cul-du-sacs will be expanded.

Bole stated that Perch Lake Road is in bad shape as stumps have started to come through the road and the stumps will need to be removed and the road pulverized.

Wiggins Lake Rd. will be put on the schedule for future brushing. The town is currently tarring, all potholes have been filled in Town, after sweeping was done, now he is on to crack sealing. The next order of business is getting roads graded, including Barlow Lake Rd. in orderto organize the calcium chloride sprayed on it. Bole said he attended a seminar on culvert replacement, which was very informative as the town has some culverts that need replacing. At a special meeting for Bishop Rd, this will allow the town aid of up to 70% on the culvert replacement. A temporary fix will be done to make the road passable for property owners of the road.

The town hall was used 15 times in April, including the election.

Newingham stated he would like to do some research on trees to be cut out as some have become dangerous with limbs breaking off. He would like to get the water test samples done at the park and Town Hall. He stated they will need to start prepping for the picnic, including deciding if they will take stumps out or bring fill in. He also stated he would like to do some improvements in the park with playground equipment and if the planning commission can look into and help with.

Czahor noted May 22 school students will be at the park for the day of caring to help rake and clean at the park. Bole stated that he and the Supervisors will go over to the park at some point to look at the trees to decide which will need to be cut, which will open up the park so it is not as dark. They will flag and mark the trees, then decide who will cut them. Bole is looking into selling the trees.

Clerk Allen reported there were three new permits in April.

She said the Plan Commission submitted a resolution recommending the Board approve the proposed 10 year update to the comprehensive plan. The approval must be done through an ordinance, which Allen had ready. Bole read the ordinance, after which the Board approved the ordinance approving the 10 year update.

Bole reported a variance application was submitted by Jeremy Maus. The variance is due to acreage as required is 1.5 acres for building, and they have 1.01 acres. They wish to build a hunting cabin on Steffen Ln. Bole looked at the property in question, as did Supervisors. They had no issues with the request as long as the set-backs are followed. The Board approved the variance.

Bole stated he would like to have a laptop specifically for the Chairman because as time goes on, the work will move to more computer based. There are a lot of reports and documents that will be generated and should be kept on a town computer. The Board approved purchasing a laptop.

Bole also said they had to update quickbooks licensing for payroll function which was not budgeted for, there is a need to adjust the budget for this. He also stated when it comes to the work in this Town, they are falling farther and farther behind. He would like to hire another full time employee to help crew. Based on some quick calculations, a full time employee should be hired with the budget. The Board approved the Town start looking for a full time employee. Bole stated to post a notice seeking applicants in the Peshtigo Times as well as on Facebook.

Bole stated there is an employee handbook; however it looks like none of the employees signed that they received it. The handbook had some things that needed to be updated, employees were uncomfortable with a few things, the Board went through the handbook and changed a few of those items and also added a section for disciplinary actions and Clerk and Treasurer duties so they are better defined. The Board approved the updated handbook.

Bole stated talked about discussion regarding garbage pick-up. It had previously been put into the general fund, and comes out to about $60,000.00 a year. A problem was noticed during the road tour, there is a lot of garbage spread along the roads as garbage is not put into bins, birds and other animals get into it and make a mess. Also recycling numbers are down, which is a problem because the town has to apply for a grant every year to help pay for recycling costs and since we do not meet the quota, we have to apply for an exception every year.

There is confusion regarding recycling. Pembine does have recycling, the garbage trucks are a two part truck, one side is for garbage, the other for recycling. Bole requests residents to recycle as much as possible to help Pembine receive as much aid as possible through the recycling grant. He stated we have single stream recycling which means it can all be put into one container. They do not use plastic bags for recycling as those get caught in the machines, putting it in plastic totes or a recyclable container works best. Czahor stated maybe a recyclable sticker given to residents to use for their containers. Her also asked how local businesses and the school are handling recyclables as those numbers should count toward total tonnage. There was a discussion regarding garbage options with the Board deciding to table the discussion until next months meeting before any decisions are made.

Bole stated the Picnic Committee is in a way its own entity and yet it is also under the umbrella of the Town and although they have their own funds in a separate account, all income/expenses must be signed off on by the Town Board. Because of the way Town monies are to be handled and how we currently handle picnic funds, it has been recommended they become their own non-profit and be separate from the Town. There was a discussion regarding the legalities regarding the Town handling the picnic vs. it being its own non-profit.

Amy Newingham with the Picnic Committee stated the only issue with them being their own non-profit is getting people to be on the Board for it, as it has to have a Board. The Board decided to table this discussion until next month.

Clerk Allen reported there was one operator license renewal application submitted by Danielle Magerowski. After a review of the application, the Board approved the renewal application.

Bole reported that Dunbar will host the 4th of July Fireworks at Northland this year. They put $5000 towards the event. Dunbar is taking over the entire event including concessions/music, etc. Dunbar had asked if Pembine would like to donate and have it be a joint event. Bole stated at this time Pembine did not have the funds to match the entire $5000 that Dunbar donated, however, local businesses help.

Bole asked if that would be something Pembine would be interested in. Newingham stated this year would be tough due to where Pembine's budget currently sits. He asked if Beecher had been talked to about this, it was noted they had not been talked to yet. It was decided this issue would be tabled until it could be discussed with Beecher.

The next regular town board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 11, at 6:30 pm at the town hall. Bills were audited and paid.
