Pembine Residents New Garbage Cans

Issue Date: February 20, 2020

The Pembine Town Board monthly meeting was called to order by Chairman Ross Bole at 6 pm on Tuesday, Feb. 11. Also present were Supervisors Vincent Czahor, Michael Newingham, Clerk/Treasurer Suzanne Allen and 11 citizens. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Bole reported there was a lot of snow the last couple weeks but were able to get banks pushed back and wing off the high banks for a place to push the snow.

The garbage cans were delivered and time was spent assembling and delivering them to residents.

Permit Administrator Bob Grandaw reported Pembine had 69 permits in 2019, which was an increase of 18% from the previous year. The dollar amount decreased by 51% due to smaller garages and things like that. Allen reported there were three new permits in January, all land use.

The Plan Commission met Feb. 3, to review the Trailer ordinance, which had no issues. They also worked on Animal Control, and only one word change. They are currently looking into grants for playground equipment and at old ordinances to see which can be combined, removed, etc. The Animal Control ordinance will be added to next month's agenda for adoption.

Bole received the list of sidewalks to abandon from the Plan Commission, which is almost all of them in town except on main streets. The Board decided to table the discussion on abandonment of sidewalks and ordinances until the spring during road tour, due to the snow being too deep for anyone to clear it at this time.

Bole also reported a letter was sent to all residents of White Tail Ln. due to the sign having been taken and the cost of replacing it. There needs to be a sign in place for Fire/EMS purposes. Responses were overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the name the same. A few wanted the name changed to their last name for various reasons. There was a discussion regarding the names, past discussion of this topic, and how to install a sign so it would be harder to be taken.

A resident of White Tail Lane stated the last time it was discussed, the residents of the road had agreed they would pay for a replacement sign to be put up. The Board stated they would replace the sign this time and put it up in a manner to prevent it from being taken. It was suggested a letter to be sent to residents of the road to confirm their willingness to cover costs for replacing sign should it be taken again. The Board approved sending a letter to the residents of Whitetail Ln to confirm keeping the name the same with the stipulation that should the sign be stolen in future, the residents of the road will pay for the replacement.

Bole wants to bring up garbage monthly so people know there is talk about it. Garbage has been on the agenda every month since May 2019 with a few exceptions. He stated the new cans were delivered to us last week. The road crew with some help from community service and Newingham put together over 500 cans and started delivering them. Cans have been delivered to all parcels north of County Rd O. There are some abnormalities with the delivery. Those being, there are some parcels that were not assessed with improvements over $10,000. Those parcels were not charged a garbage fee and would not get a garbage can. If they want a can and pick-up services they will need to request a can and pay the fee. There are some parcels where the fire number is not registered with the county so they is no physical address but will use parcel number for delivery. These we are saving for last as they are more time consuming. Bole requested that residents be patient, give until March 1 to deliver all cans. He reported that cans have been delivered to seasonal residents as well, the guys are putting them past the snow banks and further into driveway so they are not in way. There were a couple requests to hold delivery until spring. Up until the first Friday in March garbage can still be put out in any container, however, starting the first Friday in March garbage must be in the new Pembine container. Garbage will be every other week until the first Friday in March, at which time it will go to weekly. There was a discussion regarding sending out letters, costs involved, where we post information, etc. It was stated we will post the garbage guidelines around Town, on Facebook, on the website: https://sites.google.com/view/town-of-pembine, and in the Peshtigo Times with the minutes.

Starting first Friday in March will be garbage guidelines. Garbage can be in bags no larger than 33 gallon and no heavier than 30 lbs each, all garbage must fit inside cart, any garbage on top of cart or on ground won't be picked up, only new garbage carts can be used, pick-up goes to weekly on Fridays, can set out as much recycling as wanted, but use totes/bins or extra garbage cans marked recycling, do not put recycling in a bag.

Recycling can be co-mingled and for a list of acceptable recycling items see our website or Clerk for details

Anyone wanting garbage pick-up who didn't get charged the garbage fee must request a cart and pay the fee. If anyone was charged twice or charged and do not receive cart by March 1, contact the Clerk with a copy of your property tax statement.

Chairman Bole reported two bids submitted for the paving of Holmes Junction Rd and Crowe Rd. Northeast Asphalt submitted a bid for Holmes Junction in the amount of $78,755 and Crowe Rd in the amount of $21,181.60, which is $66.40 per ton. Both bids were for hot mix. Scott Construction submitted a bid for Crowe Rd. of $26,982 for cold mix which is $68 per ton. The Board accepted the NE Asphalt bid for Holmes Junction Rd. Based on price per ton, the Board accepted the NE Asphalt bid for Crowe Rd.

Bole reported he reviewed the list of street lights recommended to be removed by the Plan Commission. There was a discussion regarding the number of lights and cost. With the exception of a couple lights and an addition of a couple lights to the list, the Board approved removing the listed lights.

Bole stated the March Board meeting date has to be changed from the 10th to the 18th. Clerk Allen will not be in town from March 6th through March 16th. The Board approved.

Bole stated he would like to hold a meeting for all businesses to go over various things, like garbage pick-up, beautification, businesses activities, etc. on March 10 at 6 pm at the Town Hall. It was suggested that a letter be sent totown businesses to inform them of the meeting.

Bole reported the reserved funds cd matured on Jan. 25. It was going to roll over to a 24 month cd at a rate of 1.16%. He looked into a couple other options and believes should get a better rate. Clerk Allen will do more research into the current rates at a few of the area banks as well as the State of Wisconsin Local Government Investment Pool. The Investment Pool currently has a rate of 1.63%. The money was pulled out of the CD and placed in money market account until a decision is made.

Clerk Allen reported the Pemenee River Riders submitted a temporary liquor license application for their 3rd Annual Brat Fry on Feb. 22 with approval.

Variance applications were submitted by Heide Sanders to extend time to remove camper until spring, and Ross and Dawn Moore to build a garage. The Plan Commission noted they had not gotten these variances prior to the meeting. There was a discussion regarding this with the Board approving sending variances to the Plan Commission for review.

Bole received a few garbage fee appeals. These are to be reviewed and decided upon by the Board. After reviewing, the following appeals were decided on: W5803 Cemetery Rd, TNH Enterprises LLC, Winter's Restaurant, and Old lumber mill. Denied were W5754 County Rd. R, and Stepien Farm County Rd. R.

Clerk Allen reported that Terrie Hohol expressed interest in becoming a poll worker. There being no issue, she was appointed.

Bole stated that part of the Election Security Sub Grant was to have a generator so that in the event of a loss of power ballots can still be cast. The generator could be used to run the new screen and as back up for elections. He reported he can get an 8000 watt generator for just over $1000.00. The Board approved the purchase of a generator; with a vote of 2 for and 1 abstaining.

Czahor noted the BDP Staff will be having the Mike Bryant Talent Show on Friday, March 13 at 7 pm at the school.

The next regular town board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 18 at 6 pm at the town hall. Bills were audited and paid.
