Sell Maple Lane Apartments, Donate Proceeds To Village

Issue Date: March 17, 2021

At the Coleman Village Board meeting on Monday, March 8, Village President Glenn Woulf announced that the Coleman Non-Profit Housing Association had sold its 8-unit Maple Lane Apartments building to a private buyer, and the proceeds will be donated to the village in hopes the Village Board will use it to finance another apartment building to help meet the community's growing need for housing.

Woulf, who serves as vice president of the Coleman Non-Profit Housing Association, said there will be about $124,000 left after paying all bills, including the 50-year loan with which the 8-unit low income apartment building was constructed. Federal grant regulations require that the proceeds be donated to another non-profit organization. Woulf said he and Housing Association President Paul Mueller had discussed how to best use the $124,000 proceeds. They agreed the Village was the not-profit organization best suited at this time to use the money as it was intended, which is to provide affordable living quarters in the village.

Woulf said the new owner of Maple Lane Apartments must allow everyone currently living there to continue paying rent that cannot exceed 30 percent of their total income, but once they move out and new tenants move in, the income based rules will no longer apply.

Municipal Court Judge Clifford Patz, from the audience, suggested the village board should consider donating at least part of the proceeds to the non-profit Coleman Area Rescue Squad, which is planning to construct a new building. Patz said since the building will include three bedrooms to provide housing for Squad members, it should qualify for adding living quarters in the village. There was no comment from board members on the donation, or on the suggestion from Patz, and neither was on the agenda.

Woulf concluded his President's Report by thanking Trustee Dave Podoski for helping with upgrades at the Fire Department building and congratulated the Coleman High School Wrestling Team for taking second place in the recent state tournament, in which they lost the championship by only one point.

In his Public Safety and Personnel Committee report later in the meeting Trustee Dave Podoski thanked Double K Express for donating labor to repair the Fire Department tanker truck at no charge.

Woulf announced that Spring Clean-Up Day for the village is scheduled for Saturday, May 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Area Village Rummage Sale is scheduled for Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 15.

After some discussion the board approved a request from Gina and Kevin Baierl to abandon an unused 150'X10' alley between two lots on Rosemont Street to facilitate construction of a new home there.

In a letter to the board Baierl explained they are purchasing two parcels from her parents, William and Ellie Mongin, and plan to build across them, provide the alley is vacated.

â€My husband and I look forward to building on land that is very meaningful to me and contributing to help the Village of Coleman grow,†Baierl concluded.

Woulf noted the new home will need to have sewer and water lines run in, and Trustee Jim Heyroth said they will need to fill in a swampy area to reach it.

Building Inspector/Public Works Director Dennis Gross said he had gotten an estimate from Dan Risner on the cost of extending the road, which is not up to grade. He said they will need a pump to bring their sewage up to the sewer line, but overall he saw no problem with abandoning the alley and allowing construction plans to go forward. â€It will be a new house, which is good for the village, and no one uses that alley,†he added.

Woulf explained Baierl wants to live there to be closer to her father because of his health.

Board vote approving abandonment of the alley was unanimous.

In his report on the Northeast Municipal Court, Podoski said the 2021 court agreement is approved and good to go, â€and the other issue looks like it will be resolved.†The court currently serves the villages of Coleman and Crivitz and towns of Beaver, Brazeau and Pound, and is expected to add the Village of Pound to the list of municipalities served shortly after the April 6 elections.

The court report showed the March docket includes three adult initial appearances for the Village of Coleman and three citations for the Village of Crivitz set for trial. In February the court adjudicated 17 citations and one just cause hearing for Coleman, with citations totaling $3,361.70, adjudicated to $2,735.70, and $2,400 restitution paid to victims.

Police report prepared by Chief Ida Soletske showed 20 complaints for the month of February, with three citations issued for a total of $372. Soletske reported working 160 hours for Coleman in February, and one hour for the Town of Pound. Soletske reported she completed quite a bit of training during the month, including a Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Leadership Conference, recertification for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Chemical Test Permit and CPR recertification through the American Heart Association. Soletske said she is still working on the Time System Audit.

The Coleman Fire Department responded to four calls with 19 man hours in February, one each for a car fire and a control burn and two for Rescue Squad assists. Training was on the equipment truck and first aid treatment, and there was discussion on the Fireman's Picnic planned for July 17.

The Building Inspector report prepared by Gross showed on March 2 there were inquiries about annexing to the village, lot size for building a house, and building a house on Rosemont Street. On Feb. 4 there was a call to the state inspector with a question on state approval for a business, on Feb. 10 a resident asked about updating service at a barber shop, and on Feb. 17 There was a call about writing a letter for a variance for not installing a sprinkler system in the Rescue Squad addition.

There were four building permits issued, all for remodeling: Sean Van Erman at 271 Belgium Road, $7,000; Joe Wood, 202 Co. CP, $5,000; Timmy Gould, 219 Hammes,$4,000, and Keith Ott, 125 Prairie Court, $30,000.

In presenting the Financial Report, Trustee Nancy Stank noted the February numbers are large because the village had paid off and refinanced some existing notes. For January receipts and deposits totaled $603,540.70 and net expenses totaled $147,112.61. For February receipts/deposits totaled $2,262,618.92 and expenses totaled $1,791,243.17. Total balance in all accounts at the end of the month of $1,364,820.89 includes several savings accounts for utility expenses, including water and sewer replacement accounts.
