Peshtigo Town Board Hires New Building Inspector

Issue Date: December 20, 2018

The Town of Peshtigo Town hall had a full house for their meeting, followed by the Town Christmas party on Tuesday, Dec. 18.

The meeting started with Chairperson Denise Wiedemeier encouraging Town residents to attend a Special Town meeting on Thursday, Dec. 27, starting at 6:30 p.m. She said, "We will be covering a possible annual pay increase for the Town Board with our intent to encourage younger people to run for the board and get involved in the Town. With members of the board aging and not knowing how long any of the members will be staying on the board, she said, "We are planning for the future".

Wiedemeier also stated an ad was placed in The Peshtigo Times and the EH Extra, looking for a Town Treasurer to replace Vilas Schroeder who is retiring. Schroeder is willing to stay and train the person for however long it takes.

Chris Behrend, Senior Project Manager for TYCO-Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI), gave an update on the Fall testing, saying they wrapped up the private well testing and there are 37 people still on the POET system and 128 customers still receiving bottled water.

Behrend commented, JCI received all permits for a treatment system from the agencies and government for Ditch A that bisects property near the Industrial Parkway - TYCO sight. They ran the system in a closed loop to make sure it was operating as intended and the system was turned on live on Wednesday, Dec. 19. Installation of a treatment plan for Ditch B that runs north near the UWGB Marinette Campus is estimated to be installed in Spring. Behrend said as always, JCI will keep the area informed of the updates.

As addressed in a prior town meeting, Behrend said there will be a TYCO website that will be updated on an ongoing basis and will be up and running shortly. He ended with saying a public meeting for the Town will be held in 2019 to report the results from summer testing and the next steps in the project.

Behrend thanked the Board and residents present for allowing himself and Jim Cox, Senior Manager Marketing Communications at TYCO, JCI, to attend the meetings and give their updates. "I look forward to updating you next year on the updates and projects".

In public comment, town resident, Brian Watts asked what the process is for getting a gravel road paved. He owns property on Deer Lake Road where he plans to build a home. There are three other homes in that area.

Wiedemeier said, "We look at the roads in spring to determine which ones will be paved and it depends on the cost to maintain, how much grading has to be done and how much use the road gets. There are a lot of roads on a waiting list for paving". She told Watts to email the Town and they will look at it.

Supervisor, Mark Monnette added a comment to Watts, "Currently, there are 13 different roads that are graveled in the Town of Peshtigo, just so you know you are not the only one".

In other news, the Board approved a personal property tax write-off from two years ago for Choice Auto Recyclers in the amount of $548.70. Also, Town Clerk, Clarence Coble said letters went out to residents in the area of the Heath Lane dump site advising them the property will be for sale. An ad was put in the Dec. 19 edition of the Peshtigo Times announcing the property for sale.

Coble also announced the Town is offering a special sale for new fire number signs starting now through the April election. The price of the sign will be $25 and includes the sign, post and all the hardware. Orders will be taken from now through April 11.

Coble said the sign is bigger with larger reflective numbers making it much easier to see for Emergency Personnel if needing to locate a house in the dark. He encourages all town residents to look at their sign to consider replacing it if it is not as visible as it used to be and take advantage of this special sale.

A Public Hearing was set for a zoning change for property detached from the City of Peshtigo that will now be part of the Town of Peshtigo. The Zoning Committee approved the change at a prior meeting as Ag 1. The Public Hearing will be held at 7 p.m. prior to the next meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15, and will be followed by the regular Town meeting.

The Board approved to purchase four computers for 2019 to replace town office computers as budgeted for. The current computers operate on Windows 7 of which will no longer be supported next year. Town Treasurer, Schroeder added in support of the purchase of the computers, "It doesn't make sense to train a new hire for the Treasurer position and train them on the old system and only need to train them again on the new system after the Windows 7 is no longer supported".

It was unanimously approved to approve Tom Smith as the new Building Inspector for the Town of Peshtigo. He will assume the position as of Jan 1, 2019. Smith met with Wiedemeier, Supervisors Tom Holterman, Mark Monnette, Fire Chief, Mike Folgert, Clerk, Clarence Coble and Administrative Assistant, Nikkee Dionne. Monnette, commented that Smith has a good system, good communication and has already gotten back to them with questions and his website is user friendly and easy to access.

In Committee reports, Supervisor Dan VanBeek stated they got rid of four truckloads of TV's; Supervisor Tom Holterman stated his biggest concern now is people calling in on sections of slippery roads in shaded areas. He said he is addressing them one at a time with Keith as best they can. Hopefully we can keep up with them and hoping with the warmer weather coming up it will melt the iced areas and take care of itself; Fire Department Liaison, Monnette added there have been people out ice fishing and there was one instance where ice broke away and the person was stranded. Monnette stressed to be aware and pay attention to your surroundings and never assume ice is safe; Marinette County Board Representative, Vilas Schroeder said, the County Board meeting consisted of cleaning up on verbage in the policies, procedures and manuals and Fire Chief, Mike Folgert stated business inspections are 90% completed, ice training was held this week and there is lots of open water on the river. There was eight calls since the last meeting, including 1 ice call that was a false alarm with someone reporting they thought they saw someone stranded on the ice and four vehicle car crashes including one crash with a tree downed on a power line. Folgert stressed to never get out of your car if there is a downed power line. Wait for emergency crews to arrive to get you out safely. The person got out of the car and fortunately and thankfully this turned out ok without anyone being electrocuted, but common protocol is to stay in the vehicle until help arrives to avoid getting electrocuted.

Folgert also stated, with icy or slippery roads being taken care of on an on call basis or waiting until after a storm is over with, he is concerned about getting to any calls in a timely manner. They sometimes can't slow down their response time due to slippery roads. He commented Radar Road has been discussed prior of being slippery due to shaded areas.

The next Town of Peshtigo Meeting will be Tuesday, Jan. 15 starting with a Public Hearing to approve a Zoning change, then followed by the Town meeting.
