June 14, 2018


A duly convened meeting of the Village Board of the Village of Reeseville, Dodge County, Wisconsin, was held in open session on June 14, 2018 and called to order by Village President, Brian Miller, at 6:30 p.m. The pledge of allegiance was recited.  The following Trustees were present, Chris Abell, Chris Behymer, Lee Brasch, Jim Bublitz, Kerry Horton and Margaret Schmidt.


            Notice of this meeting was given to the public at least 24 hours prior to the meeting by posting the complete agenda at the Reeseville Village Hall, the Reeseville Post Office & the State Bank of Reeseville. Copies of the complete agenda were available for inspection at the Village Clerk’s Office.


            Dave Rennhack was present for public comment. Dave lives in the construction zone on Lincoln Ave. and has a complaint regarding the large drop off left in front of his driveway. Dave is asking for the construction workers to clean up their site, including leveling off the drop-offs in front of the driveways and filling in the sidewalks so that they are passable.


            Todd Bergman was present for public comment. Todd expressed his concerns on his case with the Village regarding his property clean up. He is concerned that he is being targeted and that there are other properties in similar condition, that are not being handled in the same manner. Todd was very belligerent toward the Board. He was repeatedly asked to lower his voice and to be mindful of his language or he would be asked to leave. Todd was unable to control his temper and walked out of the meeting.


            Jim Nelson was present for public comment. Jim has been having issues with his water. Jim is on a dead end of a service line and his water is a golden color and contains sediment. Dean Ziegel stated that the only way to flush the system is to have Jim run all the faucets in his home to try and flush the lines that way. The Board discussed reading the water meter, allowing Jim to run the water in his home and then reread the meter after flushing out the system. Jim also asked about a possible sewer cleanout located in his driveway. Dean stated that the sewer cleanout in Jim’s driveway is his personal property, the sewer line from his home to the street is his property and his responsibility.


            There were three other people in attendance, however, names were not stated for the record, and there were no other public comments or input.


Minutes of the previous regular meeting were sent to all Board members and posted. Motion by Chris Behymer and seconded by Jim Bublitz that the meeting minutes be approved. Motion carried.


Minutes of the special meeting were sent to all Board members and posted. Motion by Kerry Horton and seconded by Margaret Schmidt that the special meeting minutes be approved. Motion carried.


The treasurer’s report of the General Treasury was reviewed by the Board.  The Clerk-Treasurer made a note that the book balance, after all checks have cleared, will be around $780.81. There are a few deposits to be made in the amount of $17,040.52, which will bring the book balance to $17,821.33. The shared revenues and aids will be coming in mid-July, which will improve the general fund significantly. The Board agreed to hold off on any large purchases until late July. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer that the Village Treasurer’s report be approved.  Motion carried.


The May treasurer’s report of the Water & Sewer Utilities was reviewed by the Board. The Board also reviewed a revised January treasurer’s report for the Sewer Utility. The beginning balance on the January report did not match the ending 2017 balance as stated in the audit. This was due to a double entry of deposits that had been recorded in December and then again in January.  The January beginning balance was $3,199.49 and was revised to $11,580.09 to match the 2017 audit figures. Motion by Kerry Horton and seconded by Jim Bublitz that the May Utility Treasurer’s report be approved and to accept the revised January sewer utility report.   Motion carried.


Tammy Hampton from Kunkel Engineering was present to give the engineer report. Tammy addressed Dave Rennhack’s concerns regarding the low driveway approaches and walkways. Tammy will discuss Dave’s concerns with Don Neitzel and Alex Williams and will ask to have the construction site cleaned up. The watermain services on Lincoln Ave. and North Ave. are completed, there are a few miscellaneous items to be addressed in the future, such as manholes, new valve boxes and removing some of the old fire hydrants. In the next few weeks they will finish the driveway approaches, sidewalks and curbs. The directionally drilled watermain going from the well house to the railroad tracks was installed a few weeks ago and the casing pipe below the railroad was also installed. In the next few weeks the new watermain on each side of the railroad tracks will be connected and the watermain extension down Harrison Street to the new casing pipe crossing. Tammy noted that there was frequent water shut downs due to the conditions of the existing saddles on the water main that were in poor condition and broke off due to vibrations in the ground during construction. Jim Bublitz asked when the private service lines, that contain lead, will be replaced. The timeframe was unknown, however, there are approximately 15 homes with lead private service lines.


Tammy presented a first pay request from Wood Sewer & Excavating for the 2018 utility improvement project. The pay request is for $370,025.95. Tammy has sent in disbursement request from WDNR and CDBG to fund this pay request. The funds should be available on June 27th.


Tammy also presented a final pay request for Next Electric. The landscaping has not been finished on the Main Street lift station project. Once the landscaping is finalized, the final pay request can be paid. The total project came in under budget by $7,405.50.


Tammy stated that there will be a public hearing on July 12th at 6:00 p.m., prior to the regular Board meeting. This meeting is open to the public to discuss the process of the construction, the progress made and to address any concerns. This meeting is a requirement by the CDBG.


Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Lee Brasch to approve the first pay request for Wood Sewer & Excavating for the 2018 utility improvement project. Motion carried.


Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve the final pay request for Next Electric, contingent on the completion of the landscaping of the Main Street lift station. Motion carried.


Police Chief Bahr was present to give the police report. Chief Bahr noted that they made a few contacts with property owners to clean up their yards and they made twelve contacts to property owners in regard to grass and weeds. There was spray paint vandalism on the water tower, the police department is still investigating and a suspect is known. Other calls for the month included assisting the library, a warrant attempt, bicycle warnings, assisting a rescue, a family trouble complaint and garbage complaints. Chief Bahr touched base on the case between the Village and Mr. Bergman. There has been progress on Mr. Bergman’s property. Mr. Bergman reached out to Chief Bahr with some complaints and those complaints were addressed. The police department has also been working to correct the situation on the illegal U-turns, citations and warnings have been issued.


Fire Chief Gay was absent, however, an email from Chief Gay was read off at the meeting by Chris Abell. There were only two calls last month, there was a shed fire in Clyman on May 1st and on May 8th there was a fire along the railroad tracks. Chris also gave a BINGO report from June 10th. The progressive pot was finally won and the winner took home $3,166.16. The progressive pot is now reset to $0.00. Attendance was in the high 180’s and with these high attendance numbers, the progressive pot will build back up, rapidly. Chief Gay wants to thank the Community Center and their board for all the help and support they have provided in making BINGO such a success. The next BINGO will be held on July 8th and another date has been added, August 12th.  It was also noted in the email that the landscaping in front of Village Hall/Fire Station will be done this summer, hopefully in the next month.


The Board reviewed the amended Lowell-Reeseville First Responders By-Laws. Margaret Schmidt outlined the changes made to the by-laws. There were minor changes of the verbiage, they added mutual aid verbiage and added a co-coordinator position of the committee. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve the amended Lowell-Reeseville First Responders By-Laws. Motion carried. Margaret also gave an update on the new members. One of the new members passed the first responder class and took and passed their national test and the other two have not taken the national test yet but are in the process of finishing the first responder class.


Library Director, Kay Kromm, was absent, however, a report was prepared and given to the Board to review. Brian Miller noted that the circulation is still down, but the cause is currently unknown. A brochure on Gale Courses was handed out and reviewed by the Board. Gale Courses are free to library patrons, all you need is a library card. Brian also discussed the landscaping around the library and it will be cleaned up in early fall.


Dean Ziegel discussed the Compliance Maintenance Annual report for 2017. The Village received a 3.81 out of a 4.0 rating system and received an “A” in all the categories with the exception of the ponds receiving a “B”. The “B” rating was due to the excessive amount of rain in the Spring of 2017. Resolution 7-2018 “Compliance Maintenance Resolution”; was presented to the Board. The resolution is a requirement by the DNR which states that the Village understands and has reviewed the Compliance Maintenance Annual Report. Motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to pass Resolution 7-2018. Motion carried.


Dean also gave a utility report. On May 15, there was graffiti vandalism on the water tower, the suspect is known and the incident is still being investigated. On May 22, well #2 went down and a minor valve repair was needed. On May 24, the port-a-potty in the park was knocked over. The company forgot to chain the port-a-potty to the pole, a chain has now been installed.  On June 2, the new watermain on Lincoln Ave. was over chlorinated and was flushed out, samples were sent in for testing. On June 13, the construction crew removed an old valve and in the process of, shut down water to 330 customers and Specialty Cheese, for a couple of hours.  The construction project on Lincoln Ave., for the most part, is finished other than the private lead service lines that need to be replaced. The Village attorney drafted a notice to residents about private lead service line replacements but the letter was not acceptable due to the lack of information for the residents. The Clerk-Treasurer revised the letter to include an estimate of cost and included information about financial assistance available through the Village for private lead service line replacement costs. Notices will be given to the residents affected and the residents will have 10 days from the date of the notice to respond to the Village confirming receipt of the notice.


Dean read out loud a sanitary survey report which is completed by the DNR, every three years, on the water supply. The DNR came out on May 15th and noted the following compliance issues. There was one major deficiency where the chemical feeds are in the wrong spot on the water wells. This is due to the age of the wells and how they were constructed, this has never been a problem in the past, but it will be addressed. There were a few minor deficiencies including not keeping a log book for testing the auxiliary power, not having a comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan, lack of an adequately sized vent in the wells, valves needed in the well discharge piping, chemical storage is not appropriate, customer complaints are not logged in a book and the water system does not have an optimal dosage of polyphosphate. Dean stated that the auxiliary power is being tested as required, however a log book is not kept, but will be going forward. The Emergency Operations Plan is in practice, however, some of the contacts listed on the plan are outdated, therefore a new plan is required to update the contacts. The vent issues in the wells will be addressed. The chemical storage at well one should be stored in a separate room, however, due to the age of the building, well one should be grandfathered in. Dean will start a customer complaint book and will log complaints as necessary. Dean will also have to contact the chemical supplier to re-evaluate the chemical feed rate for the polyphosphate.


On May 22, Dean Ziegel, with the help of Gary Kohn, Ben Zechzer and Tom Berkevich, used blacktop to fill in potholes throughout the Village. Approximately 13,500 pounds of blacktop was used.


Ordinance A-99 “Creating ATV and UTV Routes” was reviewed and discussed by the Board. Dean was approached by a few residents who would like the Board to revise the ordinance to allow ATVs and UTVs to be operated on all Village streets. Currently, only North and South Main Street, Jackson Street, Park Avenue and Prairie Street are designated routes within the Village.  The Village of Lowell recently opened all streets to ATV and UTV use, however a sign has been posted that states all streets are open for use unless otherwise posted. There are a lot of specific details that need to be hatched out and the Streets and Alleys Committee will get together at a later date to revise the ordinance.


The Board reviewed the loan application, borrowing resolution and corresponding documents from the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands. Jim Bublitz presented the preamble and the resolution to borrow funds and levy tax and made a motion, seconded by Chris Behymer, to adopt the preamble and the resolution to borrow from the Trust Funds of the State of Wisconsin in the amount of $30,000.00; payable on a five-year term with an interest rate of 4%, for the purpose of financing replacement of lead service lines.  A roll call vote was taken prior to the adoption of the resolution and preamble. Chris Abell -aye, Chris Behymer -aye, Lee Brasch -aye, Jim Bublitz -aye, Kerry Horton -aye, Margaret Schmidt -aye and Brian Miller -aye. All members of the Village Board voted in favor of the preamble and resolution and they were declared adopted.


The Clerk-Treasurer discussed the results of the Board of Review, which was held on May 24th. There was one dispute case presented at the meeting. Caine Warehousing felt the value on their new building was too high, considering the location of the building. The building was assessed at $1,518,000.00 and the Board of Review lowered the assessment to $1,400,000.00.


The Clerk-Treasurer discussed the status of TID #2 and TID #3. TID #2 has been failing since the beginning and currently owes outstanding advances to the Village for start-up costs originally fronted by the Village’s general fund. TID #3 is doing very well and it was discussed potentially having TID 3# be a donor to TID #2, which would cover the outstanding advances due to the Village. There is also potential to amend TID #3’s project plan which could create more incentives and benefits for the Village and developers. The Clerk-Treasurer was given permission by the Board, to contact Dave Anderson, with the PFM Group, to reevaluate TID #2 & TID #3.


 The Board discussed the potential of using auto pay for some reoccurring bills, such as phone, webpage, electric and gas bills. The bills would still be approved by the Board prior to payment, however, it would eliminate the need to issue a physical check. The bills would be entered into the accounting system and tracked the same way as if a check was issued. Motion by Chris Behymer and seconded by Jim Bublitz to allow auto pay for reoccurring bills. Motion carried.


The following licenses were presented by Jim Bublitz for renewal for July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019; with the exception of the Reeseville Baseball Association which is renewed for June 14, 2018 to December 14, 2018:


Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to approve the mobile home park licenses for the Reeseville Associates and Sunny Creek Home LLC. Motion carried.


Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve a 6-month Class B license for Reeseville Baseball Association. Motion carried.


Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Kerry Horton to approve Class B Combination Licenses to Chase Bowl LLC, Just 1 More LLC and the Village of Reeseville Community Center. Motion carried.


Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Margaret Schmidt to approve a Combination Class A License for Sam’s Amoco LLC. Motion carried. 

Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Chris Behymer to approve the Cigarette License for Sam’s Amoco LLC. Motion carried. It was noted, for the record, that Just 1 More LLC did not apply to renew their cigarette license.


Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Kerry Horton to approve an Operator’s License for Bettina Goodhue, Matthew Keel, Benjamin Keel, Sara Hanna, Angela Firari, Shelly Laxton, Ashley Gilbert, Sandra Pocius, William Carey, Pamela Villegas and Alicia Bremer. Before finalizing the motion, Brian Miller asked Chief Bahr if background checks were done for all applications. Chief Bahr confirmed background checks were done and approved. Motion carried.

Margaret Schmidt gave the Public Health and Welfare Committee report. There have been issues with late garbage collection and properties being missed. The company has been training a new employee and it took longer for pickup. Dean Ziegel thanked Margaret for all her efforts and for contacting Advanced Disposal to make sure everything was picked up. Brian Miller also made note that residents need to be mindful of when they set out their garbage and there is only a 24-hour window.


Brian Miller discussed the Legion building. Brian heard unofficially that the Legion may dissolve and the building would no longer be needed. The building is on Village property and there’s a stipulation that if the Legion were to dissolve, the building would become Village Property. The reason for early discussion was to start thinking about future plans for the building. The discussion was then tabled.


Brian Miller and Kerry Horton, on behalf of the Community Center Board, asked about obtaining a “Square” for accepting credit cards. This would allow Community Center to be able to get down payments sooner. The Community Center currently has no way to accept payments made by credit card. Margaret Schmidt stated that she has something very similar with low interest fees and mentioned that the Square is available at Staples for a very reasonable price. The Clerk-Treasurer will do some research and follow up with Brian and Kerry.


Margaret Schmidt gave the recreation department update. Swimming lessons will be done through the YMCA and a quote for the bus is not available. Swimming lessons will begin early to mid-August. Exact dates will be in the newsletter.  Margaret noted that mowing may need to be done two times a week for the infield, but only if necessary. The mowing bills will be split between the Town of Lowell and the Village of Lowell.


Discussion on new Village attorney was tabled.


Appointment to the Community Center Board was tabled.


Appointment of the Weed Commissioner was discussed at the May meeting, however, there wasn’t an official motion, so the appointment wasn’t made. Motion by Jim Bublitz and seconded by Lee Brasch to appoint Chief Bahr as Weed Commissioner, as suggested by Brian Miller at the May Board meeting. Motion carried.


Appointment to the Fire Commission was tabled.


Appointment of the Deputy Clerk was discussed at the May meeting, however, there wasn’t an official motion, so the appointment wasn’t made. Brian Miller suggested Donald Gibson at the May Board meeting, there was a motion by Lee Brasch and seconded by Chris Behymer to appoint Donald Gibson as Deputy Clerk. However, before the motion was voted on, concerns were brought forth. Discussion on the Village records and Open Records Law was had. Don still has a lot of the Village records in his possession, including electronic records. The Board felt it was necessary to get more of the records in the current Clerk’s possession, before appointing a Deputy Clerk. Lee Brasch and Chris Behymer rescinded their motions. The appointment was tabled.


The board discussed future agenda items.

2015 Consumer Confidence Report Data

Water System Information

If you would like to know more about the information contained in this report, please contact Dean Ziegel at (920) 927-5243.

Opportunity for input on decisions affecting your water quality


Health Information

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791).

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune systems disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Environmental Protection Agency's safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791).

Educational Information

The sources of drinking water, both tap water and bottled water, include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

  • Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife.
  • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally- occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
  • Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and residential uses.
  • Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems.
  • Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same protection for public health.





Action Level: The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow.


Maximum Contaminant Level: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.


Maximum Contaminant Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.


million fibers per liter


Maximum residual disinfectant level: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.


Maximum residual disinfectant level goal: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.


millirems per year (a measure of radiation absorbed by the body)


Nephelometric Turbidity Units


picocuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity)


parts per million, or milligrams per liter (mg/l)


parts per billion, or micrograms per liter (ug/l)


parts per trillion, or nanograms per liter


parts per quadrillion, or picograms per liter


Total Coliform Rule


Treatment Technique: A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.

Detected Contaminants

Your water was tested for many contaminants last year. We are allowed to monitor for some contaminants less frequently than once a year. The following tables list only those contaminants which were detected in your water. If a contaminant was detected last year, it will appear in the following tables without a sample date. If the contaminant was not monitored last year, but was detected within the last 5 years, it will appear in the tables below along with the sample date

Additional Health Information

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Reeseville Waterworks is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
