Warming Building for Wagner Recycling Discussed

Issue Date: June 17, 2020

Town Board of Wagner met Wednesday, June 10th at 6:30 pm at the Town Hall. Officers attending were Chairperson Steve Renikow, Sr., Supervisors Mollie Arthur and Ed Delfosse, Treasurer Margo Renikow, Clerk Cassie Brown and eight members of the public.

Pledge of Allegiance was said and agenda approved.

Renikow Sr. read a letter of resignation for Deb Olson from the Public Works position effective immediately. The Town also received a letter at the Recycling Center that the meter couldn't be changed due to the box being damaged. The box had to be replaced.

Delfosse stated the septic tanks were pumped on June 10th.

In public input Don Willan stated the YMCA is now open with restrictions and Mike Caylor said there are trees hanging down on the northern half of the gravel portion of Grand Rapids Road, and requested Public Works look at it.

Dennis Reuteler and Bruce Meyhoff stated the road ditching near their property is not effective and is flooding. Renikow had the Marinette County Highway Commission review the issue and believes it can be resolved. Property owners will meet with Renikow to determine a plan.

The May 13th monthly meeting minutes were considered.

In discussion only Treasurer's report ending May 31st, Renikow discussed the cash balances.

In Fire Department updates, Caylor stated there was one call for a structure fire since the last meeting. A total of 53.5 hours were spent on maintenance and training. These activities have resumed with restrictions. The Fire Department roof is leaking again, so they will call to have it looked at.

In Public Works updates Renikow stated brushing was done on Pohl Road for trees down last winter. Trees were cut from the wind storm and culverts were installed on Caylor Road along with ditching. A new culvert was installed on Lynch Road, and a culvert extension was placed on Rademaker Rd. Town and Country Tree Service removed trees for safety reasons on Pohl Rd., Cottage Lane, Country Lane and Wagner Road. The Recycling Center will be open during normal business hours on July 4th.

In Animal Control, Jerry Micksch stated there was one call from the Marinette County Police Department regarding a resident on Cottage Lane that had a stray dog remaining on her property. The owner could not be located at the time. Animal control will have limited service during July.

Action items were discuss/consider ditching on Caylor Rd. Renikow stated he understands there is a problem with the water backing up. The Marinette County Highway Commission came and reviewed the situation. Several suggestions were provided. The first was to add another culvert on Meyhoff's property as currently the culvert is too small. This should allow more water to pass through. The second suggestion was to ditch on Caylor Road but the Town doesn't own enough of the property there to ditch enough to drain. Renikow asked Meyhoff if he would grant permission to add another culvert and allow some ditching, and he disagreed stating part of the problem is the culvert on another property is too high. He would like this issue to be addressed as well. Meyhoff would like to review the situation before deciding on future plans. Renikow requested a meeting at the site to see if they can come up with an agreement. Dennis Reuteler plans to attend the meeting as well.

Discuss/consider new warming building for Recycling Center. Social distancing requirements due to COVID-19 will be difficult to follow this winter with the current warming building. Also, the building is not in good standing. Public Works suggested buying a new building, and provided an estimate that would not include a floor or insulation. The estimated total for all items is expected to be less than $6,000. Jerry Micksch stated he recently purchased a shed from a business in Crivitz that was around $3,500. Renikow asked Micksch to provide Jimmy Brown with that information and they will look into it. Meyhoff suggested buying a cargo container that would cost an estimated $2,000 completely sealed. An opening would need to be added and areas to create ventilation. Patty Michels suggested rebuilding the whole area and using for storage as well. Jimmy Brown thinks the model provided by public works is big enough for all purposes. Arthur clarified that the warming center is the issue not the storage shed. Renikow will continue to research for the best option.

Renikow provided the Board with two suggestions for road repair projects. The options are Broennenburg Road starting at Four Lakes Road going east for one mile, or Rademaker Road from HWY 180 North. Road work includes pulverize, rough grade and stake to 24FT wide, add limestone, final grade, water, compact and pave cold mix and apply a 2FT shoulder using limestone. The Board voted to fix Rademaker Rd. with a two to one vote. Bid advertisements will be placed. Approval was by Delfosse/Renikow.

Discuss/consider brush cutting on Borderline Rd with Town of Porterfield. The Porterfield Chairn contacted Renikow regarding an agreement for Borderline Rd. Porterfield has a brush mower and has offered to brush Borderline Road and mow the grass. The Town of Wagner will do the snowplowing and be responsible for trees that are down. This would be a three-year agreement, so Renikow will continue to review prior to making a decision.

Liquor license for Heritage Inn. Clerk Brown stated that due to the recent fire at the Heritage Inn the liquor license and operator's license applications have not yet been received. Brown is in contact with the business owners and will update the Board accordingly. One operator's license application for Bonnie Rostad was received and presented to the Board for approval.

Discuss wages for housekeeper. Renikow stated a suggestion was made at the annual meeting to lower the wage for the housekeeper and/or change the structure for pay. Renikow spoke with the housekeeper and was told if the structure changed then she will resign. Arthur stated she agreed that a monthly base salary should be provided and then add a flat rate per cleaning to adjust for use of the Town Hall. Treasurer Renikow suggested adding a minimum hour requirement per month instead of changing the wage. Renikow will continue to postpone events until social distancing restrictions are lifted. Julie Brown suggested a temporary pay cut until COVID 19 is over. This topic will be reviewed next month.

For grass mowing on Town roads Howie Anderson will cut the Town grass.

About Town website, Arthur discussed a quote provided by JB Systems for a $1,500 set up fee and $50 a month to maintain. All agreed this quote seems high in correlation to usage. Patty Michels reviewed some platforms that were free and are basic. She has offered to research other platforms and has agreed to help the Town build a website. She will present a proposal at the next Board meeting.

Update on septic tank pumping. There should be two separate bills for the Town and the Fire Department.

Future agenda items are hiring Public Works/Recycling Center employee, review wages for Town hourly employees, website, Caylor Road ditching, Heritage Inn liquor licenses and warming building for Recycling Center.

Processing current and outstanding vouchers, and set next meeting for Wednesday, July 8th at 6:30 PM.
