Town Names Ed Dory As Peshtigo Town Constable

Issue Date: August 19, 2021

At the Town of Peshtigo Board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 17, after approval of the minutes, Supervisor Cindy Baur read a section of ordinance 2-76 saying that the town meeting minutes should be signed by the Clerk of the town meeting and filed in the office by the town clerk within five days of the meeting. Baur stated, â€I would like to make a motion that a copy is sent to the board at that time within five days after the meetingâ€. Clerk Clarence Coble responded, "That is for a town meeting, this is not a town meeting, that is for a meeting of the resident taxpayers of the town like the annual meeting and the budget meeting in the fall. These are Town BOARD meetings and that does not apply to the board meetings". Chairman Cindy Boyle echoed Coble's statements. After a brief discussion it was decided to table until the ordinance can be reviewed in full and bring it back at a future board meeting.

In announcements, Supervisor Kayla Furton provided a PFAS update showing with the most recent testing of 590 wells tested, a total of 417 tests came back positive for PFAS with 348 detected below enforcement standard and 69 above the enforcement standard, with 173 non detect. For reference, in November 2020, 464 wells were tested with 184 non detect, 238 detected at zero to 20 Parts Per Trillion (PPT) and 42 were detected at over the health advisory limit of over 20 PPT.

Chairperson Boyle was prepared to acknowledge Rick Badgley for his years of service as Town Constable, but unfortunately, Badgley was unable to attend. Boyle then announced the appointment of Ed Dory to fill the vacant Constable seat. Boyle added, "I am delighted that Dory took interest in becoming Constable. I think he will do an excellent job, he has an even temper and I think he will be very conscientious and I am grateful for his willingness to step into that role and I make a motion to accept Dory as the new town Constable". Supervisor Cindy Baur asked Dory, "What qualifications do you think you have to be Constable"? Boyle interjected to Baur, "He gave us his resume and all the information we need, what else do you need"? Both Coble and Boyle echoed that there are no special requirements for the constable position and he doesn't need police certification, he is just taking care of making sure town ordinances are being followed. He is an elected official and is being hired to fill out the term of the prior constable. Boyle again stated, "It's an elected position, we gave you as much information as we can give you, what more do you need"? After further questions from Baur and Supervisor Kristin Edgar, Coble agreed to check with the Towns Association to verify if there are any unknown requirements needed for the position. A motion was then made and approved to accept Dory as replacement constable.

Two Resolutions were created by the Town. The first one was labeled as Resolution # 8-2021-01 urging the Wisconsin State Legislature to pass the Clear Act and approve proposed PFAS standards in drinking, surface and groundwater. The second resolution was to support the National Estuarial Research Reserve (NERR) for the Bay of Green Bay and was numbered as 8-2021-02.

After review and discussion of the Johnson Control Inc (JCI) Reimbursement Agreement, various changes were made and line items were more clearly defined. It was then approved for Boyle to have authority to revise, edit and sign the agreement with the changes, additions, etc. as discussed. When completed, Boyle will send it to Coble for review and he will email to the Board for review to be returned to Boyle with their changes and/or approval for Boyle to make the final edits and submit to JCI.

In his Road and Ditches report, Supervisor Jon Drees advised the parking lot and horseshoe area at the town hall needs to be seal coated along with the parking lines need to be repainted. Two quotes were received with one from Quick Line in Kingsford who quoted $8,295 to fill the cracks and seal everything. The second quote was from Dunn Rite of Marinette with a quote of $7,712.

Drees also stated that Bay Road is in need of repair, which has had Muskrat problems for many years. Muskrats are burrowing into the sides of the road and the road is caving in at many spots. If we don't repair this and take care of it now, the cost will be a lot more with having to replace the whole road. Two quotes were received to add gravel and limestone with a bid from Bergeson Excavating that came in as $18,110 and Dunn Rite Asphalt was at $17,388.

Baur asked Drees if it was in the budget and Drees responded yes it is in the budget. With Dunn Rite being the lowest quote on both projects, a motion was made and accepted to proceed with Dunn Rite for both jobs.

Edgar questioned Drees if the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) can do anything to help with the muskrat issue and she agreed to reach out to the DNR to secure whatever help they can give to get the muskrat problem under control.

In the Recycling Report Baur mentioned a 55 gallon drum of over 20 years of accumulated miscellaneous batteries were sorted out and properly disposed of. All tires and TVs were picked up and the old shed is gone. She also stated she would like to insulate the warming shelter and has reached out on Facebook for donations or inexpensive insulation that people may have excess from prior projects that the Town can get donated or purchase at a reasonable price.

There were several updates from the Water Committee including an engagement letter to be sent to the City of Peshtigo in reference to possible extension of municipal water to the Town from the City. After review of the letter, the Board approved Boyle to send the letter to the City of Peshtigo.

Furton spoke in reference to three new responses and one repeat she received for Environmental Law Firm RFQs (Request For Quotes). Furton asked for approval from the Board to allow her authorization to reach out to formulate interviews with the four candidates. The board then approved her request to move forward in reaching out to them for interviews.

Furton also gave an Engineering RFQ update stating she sent out RFQs to five different firms. Of the five, three of them will be submitting their RFQs before the deadline of Aug. 31.

There was a lot of discussion about Town Supervisors submitting mileage for trips for and throughout the town. Boyle indicated if we don't put controls and regulations on what qualifies for mileage, the cost per year could be up to $20,000 just for mileage and that would have to be accounted for in the budget. Boyle added, â€I myself would not be requesting reimbursement for mileage. When I took on this job I took on the idea that this was all a part of what I signed up forâ€.

Baur and Edgar worked on job descriptions for the Recycling Center employee and the Office Assistant. The newly created job descriptions had items that were not even responsibilities of each entity and a lot of edits would need to be made to both. After further discussion, Coble advised Edgar, Baur and the Board that there are job descriptions on file for each of those positions that we can review and make the necessary changes or additions rather than have job descriptions that don't even pertain to the available positions. It would be more work to edit the new descriptions than to edit the existing ones. It was then agreed that Coble will send the current job descriptions along with State Statutes to Edgar for her review.

Fire Chief Mike Folgert announced in his report there were 22 calls since the July 20 board meeting with two vehicle crashes on US 41, one near mile marker 218 and the other at County T; A barn fire on Red School Road that was canceled; Natural gas pipeline leak on Keller Road; Trees down on Hale Rd., Tree across Hale Rd at Price Lane, Tree across Schacht Road north of Pheasant Farm Rd., Trees, electrical lines and poles down across Shore Drive; Tree across Krause Rd near N2261; Trees on Krause & Dahl Roads; Electrical lines down near N3024 Woodland Road;Tree burning on electrical lines along County Y near Old Cedar Way; Carbon monoxide alarm at N1718 Shore Drive; House Fire at W5145 Fifrick Lane, MABAS assist; Standby for explosive device found in yard at NN3729 County RW; Vehicle crash near W2508 County B; Lumberyard fire at Carney, MI, MABAS assist; Vehicle crash on US 41 on-ramp at Schacht Road; Carbon monoxide incident at N3109 County D; EMS lift assist at N2106 Keller Roa; Lines down on logging truck and in roadway on Shore Drive and Fire Alarm Activation at N2511 Shore Drive.

The New rescue boat should be completed and ready for training by next week and everything is being funded through donations and grants.  Trainings include After Action Review completed for the Superior Cedar Products fire at Carney, Mi. and Rescue boat operation and familiarization training will take place on Monday, Aug. 23rd.

We will be at the Forgotten Fire Winery Cooking for Charity event on August 28th and will be participating in the 9-11 Memorial Walk around Peshtigo on Sept. 11th. We are also continuing to work with the City of Peshtigo to support events for the Sept. 24-26 Peshtigo Historical Days and Sesquicentennial. Our firefighters will team up with theirs to work the various events that weekend including hosting the popular fireman's breakfast on Sunday, Sept. 26 at Embers 1871. 

Two new firefighters are approved pending pre-employment medical testing results.

Items moved to the next meeting of Tuesday, Sept. 21 include mileage request clarification, key policy, having a standard Town of Peshtigo header information on all town documents, orientation packets for new hires, putting the policy manual and all resolutions on line on our website, updates on Personnel policy and new template for all resolutions and policies.
