Wausaukee Names Pullen As Administrator-Clerk-Treasurer

Issue Date: October 31, 2019

At its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 16 Wausaukee Village Board voted without dissent to adopt a charter ordinance abolishing the position of Village clerk-treasurer and replacing it with a new position of Consolidated Village Admnistrator-Clerk-Treasurer, and to appoint Clerk-Treasurer Sara Pullen to fill that position effective Jan. 1, 2020. Both actions had been recommended by the Personnel Committee.

On hand for the meeting were Village President Hilbert Radtke; trustees Mack McKim, JoAnn Polomis, Steve Stumbris, and Pat Tracy; Deputy Clerk/Treasurer Barb Pociask; Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator in Certification Jeff Mayou, Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator in Training Tylor Stumbris, Joellen Simpson, Sharon Kantner, and Art Bahr with MSA Professional Services. Trustees Kyle Stumbris and Darryl Schmidt were absent and excused.

Also on recommendation of the Personnel Committee the board approved employee wage rate increases effective Jan.1, giving three percent raises to all permanent part-time and full-time employees, including Jane Huempfner, Jeff Mayou, Barb Pociask, Sara Pullen, Randy Stumbris, Tylor Stumbris, and Dennis Whitton, Jr. In addition to the three percent increase, 50 cent per hour merit pay increases were approved for Mayou, Pociask, Pullen and Whitton.

According to minutes prepared by Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen, the Board reviewed the Village Street and Utility reports, and approved bills for payment as presented.

The board also reviewed the Treasurer's Report presented by Pullen. Pullen told the board that she and Radkte had attended a meeting earlier that day to learn how the Municipal Street Improvement Program (MSIP) funding would be awarded to eligible villages and cities within Marinette County. The County has an entitlement of $57,298.97 for distribution in the MSIP program for the 2020-2021 cycle. The MSI Committee will split the funding equally ($19,099.65 each) among the three applicants - Village of Wausaukee, Village of Crivitz, and Village of Pound.

Reports from the Finance, Water and Sewage, Parks and Personnel committees were discussed. As recommended by the Finance Committee the Village fee schedule was amended to include increases to commercial new construction and remodeling permits, and a one percent sewer rate increase effective on Jan. 1. The Water and Sewage Committee had also recommended the one percent rate increase at the start of the year.

The board approved some actions after viewing the 2019 Sanitary Survey Report and a subsequent Notice of Non-Compliance. According to Pullen, when the initial audit was done, the inspector found no deficiencies, but upon further review, the inspector contacted Director of Public Works, Dennis Whitton Jr., and informed him that that the DNR was going to issue two deficiencies " one for the existing Well #1 that has not been abandoned, and the other for the delay in a drain-down inspection of the water tower.

Whitton got a quote from the CTW Corporation for the abandonment of Well #1 which must be completed by December 31, 2019. He also contacted Suez who said they could do the drain down inspection of the water tower by June of 2020. Whitton responded to the department and they were satisfied with the Village's proposed actions. The proposed 2020 Water & Sewer Utility Budget was then presented and reviewed.

The board accepted a quote from CTW Water Wells & Pumps " Medary Drilling for abandonment of Well #1.

They also approved purchase of a jetting truck from Envirotech Equipment Company for $9,500.

Next the board discussed the Park's Committee proposal to hire a consulting firm for the design of a bicycle/pedestrian path as well as the application for MSL grant. A motion was made, seconded and carried to hire U.P. Engineers to design a bicycle/pedestrian path and apply for MSL funding.

The Personnel Committee suggested hiring a seasonal groundskeeper for Main Street streetscape in 2020. The motion was made and seconded to hire a seasonal groundskeeper in 2020. The position will be up to 24 hours per week, and wages set upon hire, based on the applicant's experience. The motion was carried.

In the President's Report, Village Board President Hilbert Radtke went over the Wausaukee Fall Festival recognitions and then discussed the upcoming events which included Christmas in the Park, Trick-or-Treat, scheduled for October 31 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the second annual Family Halloween Dance on Thursday, Oc. 31 at the Middle Inlet Town Hall from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Radtke also mentioned that leaf and brush pickup was scheduled for the week of October 21 to 25. The village's annual budget hearing is set for Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 5:30 p.m.

Winter parking bans go into effect November 15, 2019 through April 1, 2020. There is no parking on village streets between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Snow removal policy requires residents to remove snow, sleet or ice within 24 hours of the cessation of snow, sleet, or ice from any and all sidewalks adjacent to the premises of such owner or occupant.

Radtke then read the Village of Wausaukee's Fair Housing Proclamation which states that village officials and employees shall assist in the orderly prevention and removal of all discrimination in housing within the Village by implementing the authority and enforcement procedures set forth in Section 106.50, Wisconsin Statutes. The proclamation was attested by Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen.

A thank you note from the Wausaukee School District was then read to the board thanking the village for assistance during the National Walk to School day event. Radtke announced that the Wausaukee Fire Department would be accepting the 1930 REO Speedwagon fire truck at an official ceremony of the Minnesota State Fire Chief's Association in Duluth, Minn. at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17.

Finally, the Board discussed whether any action needed to be taken regarding renewal of the Steve Stumbris Senior Memorial Park Operations Agreement between the Village and Town of Wausaukee but tabled the issue without taking action.
