Cedar Corp To Give Breakdown On Water

Issue Date: September 19, 2019

Board Chairman, Herman Pottratz opened the Tuesday, Sept. 17 Town of Peshtigo meeting advising the residents, that Cedar Corp will be at the Thursday, Oct. 3 meeting at Little River Country Club. Cedar Corp will give a complete breakdown of the details should the Town decide to hook up with the City of Peshtigo water system.

He also stated, the DNR does not want to attend because they are heading up other Listening Meeting sessions at the Community REC Center. These sessions will be held on Wednesdays on the following dates: Oct 16, 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.; Nov. 20, 12 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.; Dec. 18, 7 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.; Jan. 15, 12 p.m. - 1:30 p.m and 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 19, 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

In another announcement, Clerk Clarence Coble introduced Melissa Haidle, as Administrative Assistant/ Court Clerk, replacing Nikki Dionne and Marsha Rettke, as Treasurer, replacing Vilas Schroeder. Both Haidle and Rettke attended trainings and will be going to additional training at the Town Convention Oct. 13 through 15. The cost is $300 per person plus lodging, as was approved later in the meeting. Coble commented,"So far, so good, the trainings are going well".

In Public Comment, Marinette resident Andi Rich addressed the board stating, "My understanding is Action items. I feel with an overwhelming amount of things to be done on PFAS, you should be requesting information from the DNR, signing resolutions and so many other actions that need to be done to take care of the water issue. You need to make sure actions are being taken and results should be told to us. You need to set things up to go forward, whether its a resolution or action item, going forward you need to figure it out what you can share with us and assure this goes in the right direction".

Resident and Member of the Citizens Committee and SOH2O, Cindy Boyle replied, "I support Andi's comments. You need to consider these remarks and keep a revolving open door of communication. It is good for the community to get feedback. Residents should know where foam turned up in areas where it was not seen before".

Also Resident and Member of the Citizens Committee and SOH2O, Chuck Boyle added, "I also support Andi's and Cindy's comments. The Town should be the mechanism to force Tyco / Johnson Controls into this. People need to know this foam is coming up in basements with the high water level we have been experiencing".

Resident Kayla Furton then spoke, "Our group made and distributed brochures with information on local and general information on PFAS". She continued with "There are letters of inconsistencies from the DNR, we do not have testing action or a team in place. The corner of Lief and Krause Roads have fluffy white foam, our community needs to take action. We need to move to a new phase and need to take action as a group. If anyone is interested in joining our group you can email townofpeshtigocac@gmail.com".

Furton continued with, "You need to represent and be an advocate for the people of the Town of Peshtigo and we need the DNR to step up to the plate for us. We appreciate what has been done, but that is not sufficient enough, we need more information, you cannot rely solely on the Citizen Advisory Committee. We request you advocate with legislators to provide a path for our community and to all of Wisconsin. We need to get Representative John Nygren on board to support us and the Town Board holds greater weight in pushing this forward".

Pottratz took offense to some of the comments, saying "We give you everything we get, we have Cedar Corp working on this, we formed the Citizens Group, we have a meeting on Oct. 8 with Cedar Corp to share the information they have gathered, whatever we get, we share with the public and we are doing everything we can do".

Cindy Boyle responded, "Our intent was not to say you aren't doing what you can but is to provide 'more boots on the ground'. Chuck Boyle interjected, "We would like to see the board draft a resolution in support of the Clean Water Act that is going through legislation now". Coble responded, "I will get ahold of Nygren's office and see what we have to do".

Chuck Boyle then asked, "Can we ask Attorney Dave Spangenberg draft a letter or a resolution for the Clear Water Act? If anyone has any questions on the Clear Water Act they can go on our SOH20 site and there are multiple posts outlining the details on the act. The listening session is coming up, is there anyone on the board that is willing to make a request at that session?"

Pottratz replied, "I am not sure it is wise for the Board to be making comments at that meeting". Rich responded, "We need more information" is what could be your request". Pottratz responded, "We are not going to settle this tonight and not going to settle by a single resolution. It's worldwide and not just here". Cindy Boyle replied, "We need to narrow the scope and tackle what is in front of us". Pottratz then said, "It is going to take a lot of work and we will see what Cedar Corp has to say on Oct. 3".

Chuck Boyle added, "JCI is trying to distance themselves from Tyco and any documents need to have JCI and Tyco on them". Pottratz ended with, "We want to know more about the scope of work. We are not trying to keep anything from you. There is lots of information shoved by us and we want to be on top of all of it and make sure our people get the best deal".

In other action, Coble opened up one quote for nine separate culverts in need of replacement on various Town roads. The quote received was from Dan Biehl Construction for a total amount of $34,650, individually listing each culvert location with each costing $3,850. Coble checked with the Towns Association for the requirements of a quote versus a bid and it does not meet the requirements of a bid of $5,000. Since each one is an individual job less than $5,000 each, we can pick and choose which one(s) we need to go forward with replacing or fixing and there is no need for a notice in the paper. A motion was made by Supervisor Jon Drees for each board member to look the bids over and determine which ones to go forward with and put on next agenda.

It was approved for the Pleshek family to pick up trash and debris on Hale Road and in the ditches as part of the Adopt A Highway program.

In his Fire Department Report, Chief Mike Folgert stated there were five fire calls: Assist medics with CPR, a house fire on Kamin Road and unfortunately was a total loss with the family now without a home, one tree down, a vehicle train accident at the intersection of Hwy. 41 and Country Meadows Road and a gas leak.



In other news, the engine pumpers were tested and both passed. The fire rescue UTV is complete and ready to go off road and allow us to work with the Emergency Rescue Squad (ERS). The old unit will be cleaned up and listed for sale on the website under the Wisconsin Surplus Auction site. A grant was received in the amount of $1,850 from Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) to fund special hoods and masks for the department.

Folgert also said, "We are getting ready for our annual golf outing to be held Friday, Sept. 20 at Little River Golf Club. We have great prizes and sponsors this year and are still taking sponsorships if anyone is interested. Also, there will be an open house on Saturday, Oct. 5 with really neat stuff going on for kids with games, prizes and food".

Supervisor Vilas Schroeder announced in his County Board report, the Board approved the transfer of property by Kowalski walking trail to the Town of Peshtigo. The Town only has to take care of the paperwork and the fees.

A Budget Workshop meeting has been set for Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. for the 2020 budget, followed the next week by the Town Board meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
