May 15 Is Coleman Spring Clean-Up Day

Issue Date: May 12, 2021

After a brief closed session at its monthly meeting on Monday, May 10, Coleman Village Board accepted the resignation/retirement of Aaron Patefield from his long-time position as Public Utility Supervisor for the village. Patefield has been a Coleman employee for 25 years, and has been in charge of operating the water and sewer utilities. His last day on the job will be Thursday, May 20.

The board was reminded that the Coleman/Pound Area Rummage Sale will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 14 and 15, and village residents can take their unwanted bulky items to the Village recycling center on Spring Cleanup Day, which is to be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 15. There are some limits as to what will be accepted, so residents are advised to check the village web site.

Liquor and tobacco licenses for 2021-2022 were approved as presented, and a temporary liquor license was approved for the Fire Department.

After some discussion the board agreed to allow an organization called "The Giving Fund" to operate a "Little Free Pantry" from the Marinette and Oconto Counties Literary Council Room at the back of the Village Hall on a 2-month trial basis.

A letter from the Giving Fund explained their organization was started in 2016 by a woman named Jessica McClard in Arkansas, who hoped her spin on the Little Free Library concept would raise local awareness of food insecurity while creating a space for neighbors to help meet neighborhood food needs. The movement now has over 1,700 mini pantries across the country.

"The Little Free Pantry" would be a unique addition to Coleman...the small village with the big heart," the letter states. "It allows neighbors to give and receive, at their convenience and on their schedule, all the while remaining anonymous."

The location will allow 24-hour access, seven days a week, sheltered from the weather. The Giving Fund will provide detached shelving systems to accommodate non-perishable food, along with personal care, cleaning and paper items, and will be responsible for stocking, maintaining and cleaning the unmanned area regularly, including a section set aside for donations under the concept of "take what you need, leave what you can."

The board approved the new Northeast Wisconsin Joint Municipal Court agreement, with the Village of Pound joining Coleman, Crivitz and the towns of Beaver, Brazeau and Pound as member municipalities. On April 6, Judge Clifford Patz of Coleman was re-elected as Municipal Court Judge. He took his oath of office for his new term on Thursday, April 22.

In April proceedings the court considered 13 citations for the Village of Coleman, and held one just cause hearing, with adjudication amounts totaling $1,964.80 and $635 restitution paid to victims.

For Crivitz, the court handled 13 citations and two case reviews. Adjudicated amounts totaled $1,775, and $9.99 restitution was paid to victims. There were no proceedings for the towns of Beaver, Brazeau and Pound. The May court schedule calls for eight adult initial appearances totaling $1,269.20 for Coleman; 54 adult initial appearances for Crivitz, with three citations set for trial, and two trials for the Town of Beaver.

Police Chief Ida Soletske reported there were 23 complaints in April. She issued eight adult citations with penalties totaling $1,269. She worked 170.5 hours in March, and squad car miles totaled 441.

The fire department responded to three calls totaling 14.5 man-hours in April, one each for grass fire, a control burn and an alarm. Training for the month was a 2-year CPR refresher.

The building inspector report included adding reroofing to an existing building permit, issuing a citation to a resident for unsafe and unsanitary conditions, checking a footing with a resident about a road grade, and confirming with an owner that railings need to be put up before moving in.

Building permits were issued to Stephanie Smith for a privacy fence at 356 Main Street for $1,000; Steve Ermis for an addition, siding, roof, windows and foundation repairs totaling $25,000 at 125 E. Main Street; William Krueger for repairs to the south wall at 123 W. Main Street totaling $2,000; Kudick Automotive to install a fence at 137 W. Main Street for $3,000; Bobby Mongin to repair a soffit on the back shed for $1,200, and Coleman/Pound Rescue Squad for an addition to its building at 119 E. 16th Road, with no building permit fee charged.

Training is complete for Board of Review members, and the Board of Review is to be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 17. Open book is scheduled from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 1. The next Village Board meeting will be on Monday, June 14.
