City plans host of street projects in 2013 PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 28 September 2011 18:35

Although the City of Port Washington won’t undertake any new street projects next year, it is already planning for work in 2013.

The Board of Public Works on Tuesday agreed to apply for a $41,500 Department of Transportation local road improvement grant that would be used to resurface Cedar drive, court and circle on the west side of the city.

The grant would require a city match,  bringing the total available for the project to $83,000, Public Works Director Rob Vanden Noven said, noting that the total project cost is estimate at $195,200.

Officials have said they are willing to borrow to fund road projects again in 2013, Vanden Noven said.

The board reviewed the city’s five-year street plan, which must be submitted with the grant application.

The plan calls for the city to resurface a number of streets in 2013 at an estimated cost of $700,000.

They include Washington Street between Milwaukee and Wisconsin streets, Terrace Drive south of Woodview Circle, Oak, Sumac, Elm and Willow courts, Sauk Drive from Pierre Lane to the end, Parkway Drive from Norport Drive to the dead end and from Jacque Lane to Parknoll Drive and Westport Drive from Cedar to Portview and south of Second Avenue.

Vanden Noven said he selected Cedar for the grant funding because it came closest to meeting the $83,000 in grant and matching funds.

But Ald. Jim Vollmar questioned the methodology, saying the city should first look at fixing major streets that need work, then at secondary road and only after that at neighborhood roads “that are just serving a few homes.”

Cedar is basically a neighborhood road, he said, while other streets in the city are in worse shape and handle more cars each day.

But Vanden Noven said those streets require reconstruction, a more costly project than the resurfacing that’s envisioned in 2013.

“To make the funding go as far as possible, the city will be resurfacing a number of roads in 2013,” he said.

Because many of the streets that will be resurfaced in 2013 are in the Westport Meadows subdivision, the city will also realize economies of scale when doing this work, Vanden Noven added.

“Even though they’re not well traveled, they’re in horrible shape,” he said. “We can knock out all of Westport Meadows with this one project.”

The five-year street plan calls for the city to reconstruct three roads at a cost of $800,000 in 2014, including Holden Street from Orchard to Jackson streets, Jackson Street from Holden to Webster streets and Van Buren Street from Holden to Wisconsin Street.

In 2015, the plan is to reconstruction Larabee Street, Crocker Street and Lincoln Street from Summit Drive to Spring Street.

Milwaukee Street would be rebuilt from Jackson to Walters streets and Harrison Street would be reconstructed from Van Buren to Walters street in 2016 for $900,000, according to the plan.

In 2017, the plan calls for spending $1.3 million to reconstruct Milwaukee Street from Grand Avenue to Sauk Creek; Antoine Drive from Lakeview to Husting Street; Keeney Avenue from Oakland Avenue to its end; Montgomery Street from Walters to Dodge street; Norport Drive from Frances to Holden; Whitefish Road from Hales Trail to Lakeview Street; Oakland Avenue from North Spring to Park Street; and Prospect Street from Wisconsin Street to its end.

The board also agreed to apply for a $10,000 forestry grant to help plant parkway trees next year.

While the city will undoubtedly receive the local road improvement grant, “the likelihood of our getting this (forestry) grant is not that great,” Vanden Noven told the board.

But because the application will tie the planting of these trees to the city’s emerald ash borer preparedness plan, a priority for the grant, he said there is a chance the city will receive it.

The city currently budgets $5,000 to buy about 100 bare-root trees each year, placing these in areas where there are gaps in the plantings, Vanden Noven said.

This money, plus the cost of planting the trees, would be the match for the grant, if it’s received, he said.

“We’re trying to fill all the gaps we have in our street trees so when the emerald ash borer arrives and we have to cut down all these (ash) trees, it won’t be bare,” Vanden Noven said. “Obviously, we’re hoping it comes later rather than sooner so we don’t have as many gaps.”

 
Suspect in Port burglaries arrested PDF Print E-mail

Milwaukee man in jail as police seek charges for July crimes at businesses


Port Washington police on Monday arrested a 20-year-old Milwaukee man in connection with two burglaries in the city in July.

Police are asking the district attorney’s office to charge the man with two counts of burglary and one count of bail jumping, Chief Richard Thomas said.

The man, who is in custody in the Ozaukee County jail, was identified after police were able to obtain a fingerprint from a piece of broken glass at the scene of the burglaries, Thomas said.

The print was matched to the suspect by the state’s fingerprint data base, he said — the first time the database has been used by the department to solve the burglary of a business.

The July 23 burglaries were at Oh Zone! hair salon, 480 W. Grand Ave., and Homeward Bound Tattoo, 484 W. Grand Ave.

Thomas credited the work of officers Matt Keller and Craig Czarnecki, who processed the burglary scenes, and Eric Schmeling, who conducted follow-up work, with solving the crimes.

Thomas noted that the crime illustrates a growing trend in the area.

“The fact that this evidence led us to a suspect from Milwaukee shows that criminals are much more transient than they were years ago,” he said.

“Crime is not as local as it used to be, which doesn’t make our job any easier.”

In other police news:

Officers were called to Westport Meadows Park at 5 p.m. Sept. 16 after receiving a report of juveniles trying to set a fire under the trees. When they arrived, they found a 15-year-old Port boy. He was cited for setting an open fire, police said.

About 8:45 a.m. Sept. 15, police received a report from Port Washington High School of a teen who was intoxicated.

The 15-year-old Saukville boy was cited for underage consumption of alcohol and possession of tobacco and was referred to juvenile authorities on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting or obstructing an officer and escape, police said.

A 57-year-old Port Washington man who called 911 about 2:25 p.m. Sept. 12 looking for the police department’s non-emergency number was warned for misuse of the emergency line.

The man, who was found to be intoxicated, was calling to report vehicles speeding past his home on Norport Drive, police said. No vehicles were observed speeding when officers arrived.

 
Candidates list for police chief pared by panel PDF Print E-mail

The Port Washington Police and Fire Commission on Monday trimmed the list of 29 candidates for police chief almost in half, Chairman Rick Nelson said.

In doing this, the commission accepted without change the recommendation of a committee of five area police chiefs who reviewed the applications and initially narrowed the list of potential candidates.

Brown Deer Police Chief Steve Rinzel, head of the panel of chiefs, went over the applications and the city’s criteria for its new chief with the commission in closed session Monday.

“We thought they did a terrific job,” Nelson said.

Nelson said the new, narrower list includes a “substantial number” of applicants from within the department, but would not say if all five of the candidates from the Port police department remain in the running.

All five of the potential candidates in the department applied for the job, Nelson said.

“Thanks to Chief (Richard) Thomas, our guys really are quite qualified,” he said. “He’s sent them to leadership classes, management schools.”

The remaining candidates will now be asked to answer a list of about six questions that will be sent to them this week, Nelson said. These will be due in about two weeks, after which the panel will again trim the list of applicants. The commission is expected to review that list when it meets in October, and will either accept the chiefs’ recommendation or cull the list further, Nelson said.

Those remaining in the running for chief — Nelson said he expects the number will be six or seven — will then be sent to an assessment center in late October or early November.

After that, the commission will hold one-on-one interviews with the finalists before selecting a successor to Thomas, he said. A background check will be done following the selection.

Thomas, who has been the department’s chief since August 2005, is retiring on Dec. 31. The commission hopes to have his successor on the job before that time.

 
Historic firehouse goes on the market PDF Print E-mail

City to list building with local real estate firm for $249,900, give Historical Society two weeks to bid


The Port Washington Common Council Tuesday agreed to list the historic firehouse with Re/Max United with an asking price of $249,900.

The firm was one of two the city considered to market the building at the corner of Pier and Wisconsin streets in downtown. The other was Grubb Ellis of Milwaukee.

“They’re pretty equal,” Randy Tetzlaff, the city’s director of planning and development, told aldermen of the two firms’ proposals. “The marketing is identical, really. One is local. One has a little bit more of a national reputation.”

Re/Max United, which is based in Port Washington, proposed a 6% commission, adding that the sale price would likely be “a lot less,” Tetzlaff said.

Grubb Ellis had proposed an asking price of $225,000 for the property, but noted that the sale price would likely be between $175,000 and $199,000 because of the required mechanical updates and maintenance issues. Its commission would have been 7%.

City Administrator Mark Grams said that it may serve the city well to go with Grubb Ellis.

“We’ve already tried locally to sell the building,” he said.

But aldermen spoke unanimously in favor of listing the property with Re/Max United, a local firm.

Ald. Joe Dean made the motion to list the property with Re/Max, specifying there would be a two-week period during which the Port Washington Historical Society could come forward with a bid for the property. Re/Max’s commission would be reduced to 2.4% if the society successfully negotiated a purchase by then.

“I think 14 days is plenty of time given that they’ve had ample time to discuss this,” Dean said. “The writing has been on the wall for a long, long time.”

The Historical Society has long been interested in acquiring the building for use as a museum and offices. Its officials have asked the city to retain ownership of the property and lease it to the group for a nominal annual fee.

Ald. Jim Vollmar, who cast the lone ballot against listing the building, said Re/Max officials may have more success coming up with a workable plan for the Society to purchase the building.

“Tom Didier (of Re/Max) may have some ideas they could use,” he said.

Vollmar said his vote against the listing contract reflects his belief the city should not sell the historical building.

“I think it’s an asset to the community,” Vollmar said, adding he would like to see the Port Washington Historical Society take control of the building, either through a lease or purchase.

“I’d rather see the Historical Society succeed in its goal of making the city a historic attraction,” he said. “I just came back from Europe, and over there it’s all about museums and historic places.”

The sale of the historic firehouse is the last part of a complex deal the city made to keep Franklin Energy, a successful business, in the community. The firm is leasing the top floor of the Smith Bros. Marketplace building and renting its former home on Foster Street to the city, which converted it into the new senior center.

A key to making that deal work was the plan that the city would sell the former senior center — the historic firehouse — and use the proceeds to offset the cost.

Soon-to-be-vacant post attracts more than 20 applicants, including two department members, before deadline


Twenty-three people applied to become Port Washington’s new police chief by Wednesday morning, just hours before the 5 p.m. Aug. 31 deadline, Police and Fire Commission Chairman Rick Nelson said.

“I’m a little surprised,” Nelson said. “I expected a few more, but a lot of the time a number of applications come in the last day or two before the deadline so the number should increase.”

There are about eight candidates from out of state, Nelson said, but the vast majority are from throughout Wisconsin.

Two applicants are from within the department, he said, adding he expected at least one more candidate from the department to apply before the Wednesday evening deadline.

There are five potential candidates in the department — Captain Mike Keller and lieutenants Kevin Hingiss, Mike Davel, Tom Barbuch and Eric Leet — who meet the standards set for the job, commission members have said.

Applications postmarked by Aug. 31 will be considered by the commission, he noted.

In 2005, the last time the city sought a new police chief, 72 applications were received after a nationwide search.

“There are some highly qualified candidates,” Nelson said of the field of applicants. “Those who meet the criteria set by the commission really meet it and are highly qualified. Some have significant life experiences. Some have master’s degrees and even beyond. Some have gone to some really fine schools.

“There are also some that I look at and wonder why they’re sending in an application.”

A panel of five area police chiefs will do the initial review of applications next week and recommend a list of candidates to interview, Nelson said.

The commission will review that list in closed session during its Monday, Sept. 12, meeting, he said, noting the group can accept the list, or add or subtract candidates from it.

The panel of police chiefs will then do face-to-face interviews with the candidates, Nelson said.

The field will then be narrowed, with the finalists being sent to an assessment center, probably in October, he said.

“I’d like to get it (the list) to no more than a half-dozen,” Nelson said.

The commission will then interview the finalists before selecting a successor to Chief Richard Thomas, probably in November, he said. A background check will be done following the selection.

Commission members would like the new chief to be on the staff in time to work with Thomas, who has been the chief since Aug. 29, 2005, before his retirement on Dec. 31.

The commission has discussed the possibility of allowing all the candidates from within the department to continue through the entire selection process, Nelson said, but no decision has been made.

The requirements for the new chief include:

A bachelor’s degree in business, public administration, criminal justice or a closely related field.

Additional training from the FBI National Academy, Northwestern University, Southern Police Institute or similar law-enforcement institution.

At least 10 years of progressively responsible law-enforcement experience, including five years in a command position.


A valid driver’s license and be eligible for Wisconsin law-enforcement certification. That certification must be attained within one year.

Applicants must be willing to move to the City of Port Washington within one year of their appointment.

They must be serious about such things as accreditation, consolidation, community-oriented policing, collaboration with Ozaukee County and other police agencies
and budgeting.
