Wausaukee Board Praises Evergreen Park Campground

Issue Date: June 24, 2021

At their meeting on Monday, June 21 members of Wausaukee Village Board praised results of the improvements at Evergreen Park and thanked Paul Schroeder for donating his services there and Assistant Clerk Treasurer Emily Tadisch for painting the restrooms; expressed support for the Marinette County Fair Association's planned Independence Day celebration at the Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 3 and parade at 1 p.m., and expressed hope that veterans from surrounding communities will come to Wausaukee to march in that parade.

The board was told that use of Evergreen Park Campground has increased greatly, and trustees said they have been hearing all good comments. Tadisch said people from all over the country have been contacting the clerk's office with good remarks about the park. The board considered a proposal from Village President Pat Tracy to add 14 feet of fence at one point in the park to prevent ATVs from getting through, and then agreed to have boulders place there instead. Doing so will cost far less, and allow campers to get directly to the hiking trail from their campsites instead of having to go all the way around. A missing portion of the hiking trail bridge is to be replaced.

Despite some strong reservations about the way things have been handled, approved the 2021 emergency medical services contract with Wausaukee Rescue Squad, Inc.

The new Rescue Squad contract took effect on Jan. 1, when the squad changed from being a volunteer organization to having paid employees on duty 24/7, whether there is a call or not. Three months' advance notice are required for cancellation by either side. The Wausaukee Rescue Squad serves the town and village of Wausaukee,Town of Wagner, Town of Amberg and a portion of the Town of Middle Inlet. Under the new agreement, the Village of Wausaukee is to pay $31,140.20 per year, and the contract states payments are to be made quarterly by the 15th of of the first month of each quarter, but Village of Wausaukee Admin-istrator/Clerk/Treasurer Sara Pullen said she had received no contract from the Squad until recently, and the village has not yet made the $7,785.05 payment for the second quarter. She told of a somewhat demeaning exchange with a Squad spokesperson over the contract, and Trustee Mac McKim said the village should ask for an apology.

Pullen said she was told the Squad's treasury is almost empty, and their payroll comes to $30,000 a month.

Trustee Joanne Polomis asked if the Rescue Squad Board of Directors had held any meetings recently, and Pullen replied, "None that we were invited to." Village President Pat Tracy said the Directors had not met in the last the last three months.

Polomis commented they need to see how many people are working for the Squad and what they are being paid. Tracy said he will request that information for the last three months. McKim asked Tracy to make it clear at the next Squad meeting that Wausaukee will not tolerate mistreatment of Pullen, and seek an apology. He said the directors also should require that when Squad employees are being paid they should be at the Squad building, "not sitting at home watching TV or cutting their grass." He said not being at the building can add 10 minutes to a call, and that could make the difference between life and death.

Trustee Steve Stumbris said they need to tell the other municipalities and get them on board with this, and need to tell the Rescue Squad employees that the municipal elected officials are their commissioners, not the other way around.

That said, the board agreed they cannot leave the village without emergency medical services, and voted without dissent to approve the contract as presented to continue service without interruption.

Meetings of the Wausaukee Rescue Squad Board of Directors, which includes representatives of each of the municipalities it serves, are supposed to be held at 6:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month, either at the Rescue Squad building one block east of Hwy. 141 at 429 Harrison Ave., or at the Wausaukee Village Hall across the street.

In September when the new agreements were negotiated Rescue Squad board members were are president, Steve VanDenBerg, vice president and secretary, Kevin Kwasny; treasurer McKenna Satevny, Town of Amberg Supervisor Ron Holmes. Jaime VanDenBerg, wife of Steve VanDenBerg, is office administrator and lead EMT.

Each of the municipalities agreed at that time that the cost of the service would be allocated to the municipalities based on the number of improved parcels in each. Formula for this was worked out by Pullen and approved by the other municipalities, but she said VanDenBerg had berated her for not providing the Squad with the actual dollar amounts for billing.

In other business for the Village of Wausaukee, beer, liquor and tobacco licenses were renewed. Tracy had sought to have a restriction placed on the Chippewa Bar, LLC license for the Dark Horse Bar & Grill stating that it will be revoked if they continue to allow smoking indoors, which is contrary to state law Others on the board said that applies to all establishments and they should not single out one establishment for criticism.

They also approved a temporary Class B beer license for the Marinette County Fair in August.

Providing Wi-Fi service for Evergreen Park Campground was again postponed due to lack of a quote from CellCom.

Installation of street lights on Perch Lake Road at the village limits and at the junction of Cedar Street and Hwy. 180 were approved.

At the start of the meeting, Maija Seppanen of Cedar Corp reported on the well project, and the board approved a maintenance plan for pumping sand.

Wausaukee Community Association will host the 12th Annual Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 2.
