Village of Crivitz Is Considering Extra Territorial Zoning for Well

Issue Date: October 18, 2018

As part of its efforts to protect the village water supply, Crivitz Village Board has been working on a Wellhead Protection Plan. To make that plan effective, they need authority to regulate uses of land near the ground water source. Since the wellhead is located outside village limits, that involves extra territorial zoning of properties in the Town of Stephenson within a 1.5 mile radius from the village limits. By Wisconsin state statues villages and cities have extra territorial zoning authority.

Agenda for the Tuesday, Oct. 16 regular monthly meeting of the Crivitz Village Board had provided for passing a resolution declaring commencement of proceedings and intent to zone extraterritorial lands, as well as adoption of the Wellhead Protection Plan. There were still some details to settle, so the board opted to postpone action on both items until its November meeting.

Village President John Deschane and Clerk/Treasurer Marilyn Padgett explained after the meeting adjourned that the sole purpose of the village's decision to pursue extra territorial zoning is to get their wellhead protection plan in place and enforceable. "The only way to do that is with zoning, and the Town of Stephenson has no zoning ordinance," Padgett explained.

Deschane explained passage of the intent to zone will freeze use of the land as is for two years, with a possible additional year extension. He stressed that everyone will be able to basically continue doing whatever they are allowed to do with their land now, including hunt, fish, and farm on it.

Once the village's intent to zone is adopted the town and village will each appoint three people to a committee that will set up zoning rules that will eventually take effect. All meetings of this group will be announced in advance and will be open to the public, Deschane said. He repeated that the village has no intention of limiting use of private property in the town except for rules needed to protect the source of village water. This could mean limiting application of fertilizers, pesticides, etc. within a specified number of feet from the wellhead.

He recalled that the last time the Town of Stephenson talked about zoning there was strong opposition and a lot of mis-information. Some of the misinformation included false claims that property owners would lose the right to hunt, fish or farm on their land, he said.

He said the extra territorial zoning will only impose rules as recommended by the committee, and repeated that the village's sole intent in exercising its extra-territorial zoning authority is to protect the village water supply. He said land division will absolutely not be involved, and nothing the village plans to do would set minimum acreages for land transactions. However, existing use will be frozen until the land use committee gets its job done, Deschane added. That could take two to three years.

Padgett declared protecting the village water supply is important for all area residents, not only those who live in the village. For example, anyone whose children attend school in Crivitz would be affected if the wells should go bad, as would anyone with a loved one in New Care, anyone who uses the Youth Center or Community Center, or even anyone who patronizes businesses in the village.

Also stricken from the meeting agenda were hiring a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) planing consultant and possible action on the 2019 general fund and TIF budgets. Both those issues will also be addressed on Tuesday, Nov. 20 following the 6:45 p.m. public hearing on the 2019 budget.

The board discussed final plans for Christmas In The Village, which is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 24. As usual it will include visits and wagon rides with Santa and Mrs.Claus, the Fire Department Christmas parade, cocoa, cookies, special treats at local businesses, and more.

During regular business of the meeting Deschane thanked the Fire Department for using $6,000 of the money they earned at Octoberfest to buy three complete sets of turnout gear for firefighters.

The village has been making plans to move its yard waste compost site from the east side of the wastewater treatment plant to the west side. Padgett advised the board she had received the state license for the new compost site that afternoon, so construction can start in spring. In the meantime, the current site will remain in operation until the new site is ready to go. The board authorized spending up to $9,000 to develop the new site, and Padgett said even though construction will be next year they will pay for it with money already budgeted in 2018.

The board authorized the Fire Department to apply for a matching funds grant of up to $60,000 through the Assistance To Firefighters Grant program for purchase of air packs. If the application is approved the village will be obligated to provide five percent of the actual cost.

They also authorized attendance at the Fire Inspector's Conference. Trustee Stu Swanson, former Fire Chief, went on record as abstaining from this vote. All others voted aye.

The board voted without dissent to accept the Richlen Excavating bid for snowplowing in the village in 2019.

An operator's license was approved for Curtis Schullz, to be effective from Oct. 18 of this year through June 30 of 2020. Padgett noted there was another applicant, but the vendor said she is no longer on their employee so her license application was not acted upon.
