Yes, Family Dollar Is Coming To Coleman

The Coleman Village Board last year approved a contract with an entity to purchase land in the village to bring a Family Dollar store to town. Because of a number of factors, that contract expired and the project was put on hold.

At the Monday, June 3 meeting of the Board, the project was renewed with a new contract that was made directly with the company known as SMR to bring the store to Coleman. The terms of the contract are the same as last year’s contract, including the sale of the property for $43,000.

According to Village President Glenn Woulf, SMR plans to demolish the existing structure located on the property, which is near the corner of Business 141 (CTH CP) and Main Street, and combine it with an existing lot.

Woulf went on to say that once the sale is complete, the company plans to begin the project right away, with the goal of having the new store open by winter.

In other matters, the Board began their meeting by hearing a presentation by Doug Pearson from Development Funding Services of Green Bay. The company specializes in working with companies and municipalities on securing grants and loans to bring companies and jobs to a community. When this economic development occurs, the community in turn sees an increase in its tax base and its quality of life.

Pearson reviewed what his company offers and some of the current projects they are working with. He noted that the entire northeast region of Wisconsin is ripe for manufacturing expansion. He pointed to the fact that several companies are eyeing the region, and Marinette County in particular, because of the manufacturing-supply needs of Marinette Marine in Marinette. Pearson viewed Coleman as ideally situated for this expansion.

The members of the Board asked a plethora of questions, explicitly talking about specific vacant buildings and the need to supply the skilled workers needed for these businesses.

The Board took no action on contracting Pearson and Development Funding at this meeting, but promised to ponder the matter for next month’s meeting.

Moving on with the rest of the meeting, the Board approved a Class A Beer and Liquor License for Pelkin’s Foods. Class B Beer and Liquor Licenses were approved for Leanne’s Green Lantern, Jiz’s, Cheers, and Barnstormers. A Class B: Fermented Malt Beverage Licenses was approved for Steiner’s Northwoods. Tobacco Licenses were approved for Pelkin’s Piggly Wiggly and Steiner’s Northwoods.

With full support, the Board approved a picnic license for the Fireman’s Picnic, to be held July 19-21 this summer.

Under the agenda item Citizen Comments, Woulf read a letter from a new restaurant in town, called Cool Licks. The restaurant is located at 119 Business 141. Cool Licks is the ice cream shop in town that is now under new ownership. The business, which sells more than just ice cream, is open daily from 10:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. The letter emphasized the full menu and the fact that there is inside seating.

The Recreation Committee expressed their thanks to Fortress Fence, Fendryk Brother’s Construction and the Coleman Little League for the donation and work done to construct a batting cage at the Coleman Park. Committee Chairman Wayne Smet added, This is a nice addition to the park facilities and we want to thank them for their time and effort to enhance the park.

The Public Works Committee reported that the existing roadway on Railway Avenue will be pulverized this week in preparation for some needed utility work. The hope is to have it repaved by the picnic in mid July.

The Board of Health and Sanitation reported that the recent Clean Up Day went very, very well.

The Tax Committee and Board of Review reminded the Village Board that the annual Open Book is set for June 5 and that the Board of Review is set for Wednesday, June 26 from 4 to 6 P.M.

Under the Zoning and Planning Commission report, Woulf talked about the some of the revisions that will take place with the CTH B interchange at Hwy 141. The changes will better accommodate traffic, especially truck traffic, during the detour of Hwy 64 next year. The Board also discussed the detour route, which will bring into the south side of the village since CTH B will be the major detour route.

The monthly Police Department report showed that there were 27 complaints responded to in the month of May, which resulted in 11 citations being issued. Fines totaled $1,707.60. The Joint Municipal Court held hearings for 16 adults, 1 juvenile and three just cause hearings.

The Fire Department reported on six calls during the month of May, which included two car accidents, two brush fires, one car fire and one furnace fire. These added up to 6.5 hours on call and 50 total man-hours. In their reporting year, the department has responded to 26 calls. The training for May was a review of the Every 15 Minute program at Coleman High School.

Building Inspector Jim Buschman’s report showed that in addition to normal permit issues, he dealt with a mold issue at a vacant residence, warned a homeowner on the condition of a detached garage, issued a verbal warning about building without a permit (homeowner complied the next day by getting a permit) and lastly, he wrote a letter to a landlord on safety issues in rental units.

The Board approved six regular Building Permits in the month: James McDowell for roofing, windows and siding; Dave Baker for re-roofing; Richard Rudolph for windows and drywall work; Pat Konkel for electrical upgrades; Dennis Brault for new windows; and the Village of Coleman for enclosure of a structure.

The Treasurer’s Report showed the following balances at the end of May: Checking account—$8,274.00; Money Market #1—$157,049.71; Money Market #2—$242,980.94. The report showed receipts of $15,990.33 and transfers by journal entries of $33,000. Disbursements included payroll expenses of $10,293.19 and regular disbursements of $34,189.97. The Board approved vouchers since the last meeting totaling $24,983.69.

Village President Woulf concluded the meeting by talking about a recent rash of vandalism in the village. He urged the Board members and the community as a whole to keep a watchful eye and report the imbeciles that are doing it.
