Town Board Postpones Decision On Plowing Bids

Issue Date: January 16, 2019

The Town of Peshtigo meeting of Tuesday, Jan. 15 started with a moment of silence for Al Dudka, who passed away recently. He was a longtime board member and charter member of the Fire Department for over 25 years.

Before the meeting, a Public Hearing was held for property detached from the City of Peshtigo which is now a part of the Town of Peshtigo for approval of being designated as Ag 1. The property is located off of the old Cedar Way on the south side of Peshtigo. All property owners in the area were sent a letter. The hearing ended with approval of the property being approved as Ag 1.

In public comment, Town of Peshtigo resident Chuck Boyle addressed Chairperson, Denise Wiedemeier in regards to her supposedly saying at a prior meeting that she doesn't submit mileage to the Town of Peshtigo for reimbursement. Wiedemeier replied with, "I never said that and of course I am going to claim mileage if I have to travel to Green Bay and use my own vehicle. If this subject comes up again, I will have an attorney present".

In other public comment, town resident, Joe Wilke addressed the board in regards to possibly placing a stop sign at the corner of Flame Road by Loopys II and Old Peshtigo Road. He said, I talked to 11 of 14 residents in that area and they all agreed. Cars are constantly traveling a lot faster than the posted speed limit and he has already seen vehicles pass school busses when they are stopped to load or unload children.

This item was also on the agenda and they later discussed other options of various types of signs rather than a stop sign. Supervisor, Tom Holterman commented to go with signs as an interim fix and monitor to see if that helps. After further discussion from the board, it was decided to put four school bus signs staggered in both directions on Old Peshtigo Road. Clerk, Clarence Coble addressed Wiedemeier to contact the DOT as well and see if there is anything they can do to help.

Holterman also commented, since we own the speed monitoring unit that the County has we should benefit from it. I would like to set up a schedule with the Sheriff's Department to use the machine to monitor traffic on Old Peshtigo Road and also have better patrol on the road and see what our next step would be.

Wiedemeier announced the snowplow contract with Road King is due in May and she would like to advertise for contract bids and set a date for proposals to be submitted to the Town. Supervisors Dan VanBeek and Tom Holterman asked to continue the contract with Road King and not put out for bid because Road King is willing to keep his price the same with no increase but if it goes out for bid he will be forced to raise his price.

The board for the most part was in agreement of keeping the contract as is with Road King, but Wiedemeier said to the Board, "We need to sit down and discuss as a group, it would be nice to know how much sand and salt we use monthly and what we are being charged".

Jim Wortner, owner of Road King said, "The County does the sanding and salting, you will have to ask them. I have kept my prices the same since I have started plowing for the Town and if you bid it out, I will be forced to raise my prices".

With Supervisor Mark Monnette's absence, Wiedemeier stated she would like Monnette to be involved in the decision. I don't want to make any decision without his input. We have to meet about the selection of a new treasurer so we can set up a separate meeting to meet about both. I would like to postpone and wait for a special meeting with Monnette for his input.

Wortner then muttered, "It's a vendetta".

With Tyco - Johnson Control personnel not able to attend the meeting to provide an update of ongoing water testing in the Town of Peshtigo, they provided a handout that outlined the progress and updates.

The site for a treatment system to address PFOA and PFOS in ditch B which crosses West Bay Shore Street and runs through Runnoe Park has been selected. The system will be located on the campus of Northland Lutheran. Approvals and permits are moving forward and we anticipate installation and startup in approximately 90 days. They have been working closely with the City of Marinette to obtain approvals from the Planning Commission and Council and also with the WDNR and Army Corp of Engineers on agency required permitting.

The Fall 2018 sampling event is coming to a close. There were 82 private drinking water wells sampled and nine wells were tested for the first time.

As a result, 168 private drinking wells have been tested since the program began, 110 wells had no detections of PFOA/PFOS, 41 wells returned results with detections below the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Health Advisory Level (HAL) and a few of these wells are in the process of being re-sampled as well as POET systems have been offered, 15 wells returned results with detections of PFOA/PFOS above the USEPA lifetime HAL. Each property has been offered a Point of Entry Treatment (POET) system. The results fro two of the wells are in progress at this point and 37 POET systems have been installed to date.

Tyco also conducted additional private drinking water well testing near Rader Road and Shore Drive and the results were consistent with other results in the surrounding area with five of six results as non-detect and the sixth result is presently undergoing final quality control steps.

Additional Vertical Aquifer Profile (VAP) testing was done with five VAP borings and 16 intervals sampled near Heath Lane and Shore Drive and the results were either non-detect or low levels well below the EPA HAL for drinking water for PFOA/PFOS.

As always, Tyco will continue to study long term drinking water replacement options with the primary focus being municipal water and will continue to report additional updates throughout 2019.

Tyco will continue to keep the community as well as other interested parties informed of the progress. They are preparing for another Public Informational Meeting in the near future. For further information visit Tyco's website at http://marinette.tycofpp.com to find the latest investigation updates, background information, communications, frequently asked questions, additional resources and contact information. For specific questions or concerns, call 1-800-314-1381.

In announcements, Wiedemeier stated the primary election will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 19 with Wiedemeier, Monnette and Staudenmeier on the ballot for election.

The fee schedule for building permit fees as approved by the Plan Commission at their meeting of Monday, Jan. 14 and presented to the board was approved as presented with changes to the fee schedule for new home and commercial buildings.

New home fee schedules will now be $600 for homes up to 1,400 square feet, $625 for 1,500 to 1,999 square feet, $650 for 2,000 to 3,000 and $750 for homes over 3,000 square feet in addition to $35 for each level for the state seal. Fees for commercial buildings up to 1,499 square feet will be $200, for 1,500 to 2,999 square feet, $250 and 3,000 square feet and up will be $300.

With the new building inspector, Tom Smith, of Tom Smith Inspections, LLC, the town now has the ability to provide occupancy permits and that fee will be $75. All information will be posted on the town website as well as the building inspector has his own website, tinspections.com or can be contacted by phone at 920-655-1735 or email at tom@tsinspections.com

The purchase of new computers was approved and are accounted for in the budget. The computers will have the latest version of Windows 10. Wiedemeier commented the computers will be a welcomed addition with the existing ones being so old, she saw how Administrative Assistant, Nikki Dionne struggle with getting anything done with constantly having to turn off the computer and reboot.

Coble mentioned the for sale advertisement for the property on Heath Lane was submitted to the paper after informing all surrounding area residents if they were interested in the property or had concerns to contact the Town. He stated he has information on what to sell the property for and will discuss with the board.

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 19 and is the same evening as the primary election.
