City Hires Ryan Nemetz As New Police Officer

Issue Date: November 15, 2018

By unanimous vote on Wednesday, Nov. 7 Peshtigo City Council agreed that Ryan Nemetz should be hired to fill the city's new full time police officer position. Nemetz, who has long-time family connections to this area, had been working part time as a Peshtigo police officer and also part time as a Village of Lena police officer.

He had been selected by the Personnel Committee after a closed meeting on Thursday, Oct. 25, and the job offer includes a provision that he will start in the Patrolman post at the probationary wage. Alderman Mike Behnke, who chairs the Personnel Committee, said the city has somewhat set a precedent that if part time officers, or other part time city employees, are doing good at their job and want to move to full time, they will be selected when an opening comes up. He added that Officer Nemetz has been doing a good job.

That action came during a brief regular monthly meeting that was held on Wednesday, Nov. 7 rather than the regular first Tuesday of the month because of the elections on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Mayor Cathi Malke thanked Clerk Treasurer Tammy Kasal and her staff for their work on a busy Election Day and said everything had gone smoothly.

In other action at the meeting Council unanimously approved the 2019 budget as amended for presentation at the budget hearing and special meeting which are set for 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15. They also recommended borrowing the approximate amount of money needed for capital outlay items to maintain a consistent millage rate for 2019.

Thanks to the generosity of Bay Area Medical Center and Aurora Affiliates, the City of Peshtigo Municipal Building has several pieces of new furniture. Mayor Cathi Malke said the hospital, which recently moved into its brand new facility, had donated furniture to non profit groups and municipalities. Peshtigo received five filing cabinets, five chairs for office staff, and several chairs and other pieces of furniture for the hallway. Malke thanked Aurora and Bay Area for heir generosity.

Council approved a Personnel Committee recommendation that allows Police Lt. Jared Phillips to carry over 40 hours of vacation from 2018 into 2019, and then be paid out for any remaining 2018 vacation time at the end of the year.

Police Chief Rick Badgley reported he had purchased the armored vests for officers that were included in the budget, but now his department will be giving $1,490 of the purchase price back to the city's general fund. he has been notified that they will be receiving a grant for that amount toward purchase of the vests. He added that the officers love the new light weight protective vests.

Reporting for the Water and Sewer Committee, Malke said they have been notified by the Wisconsin DNR that Rich Sparks needs to complete a full year for his Operator-In-Charge certification." "Everybody needs to tell him what a good job he's doing," Malke said of Sparks. "This summer we had him going every which way to get schooling to help us with that plant!"

Public Works Director George Cowell reported that city crews will continue picking up leaves in alleys where they are now collected as long as weather permits, but the final day for raking leaves into the street for pickup was to be on Sunday, Nov 11 for cleanup on Monday, Nov. 12. After that eaves and other yard debris can be brought to the storage area at the Department of Public Works Garage.

Cowell said the large flower pots have been moved to winter storage and his crew is in the winter cleanup mode before snow gets here.

Cowell said Aubin Street construction area has has been paved and gravel is being placed on shoulders. Pulverizing and paving was done by Northeast Asphalt and public Works crews raised the manhole covers, and did catch basin and water valve adjustment work, and then shouldered the north side of the construction area.

A series of small change orders resulting in a net reduction of $36.69 in the cost of the 2018 Emery Ave. Construction project was approved. Barley Excavating served as general contractor for the Emery Ave. work. Cowell said he and his crew did the construction layout work, as well as inspection work for the water main installation. Northeast Asphalt did the paving, Martell Construction did the curb and gutter and Ed's Concrete of Peshtigo is doing sidewalk and driveway work.

Bartender licenses were approved for Katelynn Kamin and Regina Shoupe, and for Katelyn Hunter and Bruce Lange, contingent on completion of Servers License Certificate requirements.

In addition to routine business at a brief 8:30 a.m. meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13 the Water and Sewer Committee went over expenditure reports and the 2019 proposed budget in preparation for the Council's special meeting and budget hearing at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15. The committee also approved sewer credits for two water and sewer customers who had inadvertently left their hoses on. In accord with previously established city policy, these are once in a lifetime credits that cannot be repeated as long as the property has the same owner.
