Port Washington


District urged to get help overseeing school upgrades PDF Print E-mail

Former teacher, board member tells PW-S officials they should hire clerk to supervise $49.4 referendum project

    The Port Washington-Saukville School Board plans to select a construction management firm to oversee its $49.4 million school improvement initiative next week, but in the interim it received some advice from an architect who is no stranger to the district.

    Barrett Genson, a former Port Washington High School teacher and school board member who most recently served as director of facilities planning during the development of Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Fla., told school officials during Monday’s board meeting that they should hire a clerk of the works to oversee the project and represent the interests of the board and taxpayers.

    “Hiring someone independent of the architect and the construction manager who works just for you may alleviate some of the consternation the public, including the Common Council president, has expressed about how the architect was hired,” said Genson, who added that he essentially served as a clerk of the works during construction of the Florida university.

    Genson was referring to criticism the board has received for deciding to hire Bray Architects, the firm that conceived the most expensive referendum in the history of the district, to design improvements at Port High and Dunwiddie Elementary School without seeking competitive bids.

    Last week, Ald. Dan Becker, president of the Port Washington Common Council, said the school board’s actions “didn’t pass the smell test.”

    Genson agreed, saying, “It doesn’t seem right to hire an architect for a $49.4 million project without going through a selection process.”

    A clerk of the works, who would report directly to the board and administrators, would ensure the additions and renovations planned for the two schools are built to specifications and are completed within the budget and on time, Genson said.

    In addition, a clerk of the works would settle any disagreements between the architect and construction manager, something that’s important given the complexity of the high school project, he said.

    “Forty-nine million dollars of construction is enormous,” Genson said. “You’re going to have a tough row to hoe accomplishing this while keeping school open.

    “On a project of this size, there are going to be conflicts, and you’re going to want a clerk of the works to represent you and settle them.”

    Supt. Michael Weber, however, said it will be the job of the construction manager to oversee day-to-day construction and report directly to school officials.

    “That’s what we’re hiring a construction manager for, but we appreciate his (Genson’s) willingness to be available to help us,” Weber said. “Someone with Barrett’s experience will be valuable.”

    The board is currently considering proposals from two finalists for the construction manager job — Fond du Lac-based C.D. Smith Construction Inc. and Milwaukee-based CG Schmidt.

    Administrators and school board member Marchell Longstaff recently toured a CG Schmidt job site at Hartford High School and a C.D. Smith project in the Lomira School District.

    “Both companies are very professional,” Weber said. “They truly are the owner’s person; they answer to the owner, not the architect.

    “We can’t go wrong with either of them.”

    School officials have also made progress in clarifying the fees proposed by each of the firms.

    CG Schmidt has proposed a management fee of $692,647 plus 1.69% on change orders.

    C.D. Smith has proposed a fee of $685,000 with no additional charge for change orders.

    Less clear, however, are the general condition charges — hourly rates for various supervisors and, in some cases, job site equipment such as portable toilets and on-site offices — which hinge on the duration of the project. Conceptual plans estimate it will take four years to complete the high school work.

    The board met in closed session Monday to develop a negotiating strategy and expects to have final proposals to choose from when it meets Monday, May 18.

    In related news, administrators said Monday that quick action by school officials to borrow $33 million of the $49.4 million less than two weeks after the referendum has saved about $900,000 in interest costs. That’s because interest rates have increased since then.

    Fearing that would be the case, Director of Business Services Jim Froemming worked with the district’s financial firm, Baird, to finalize details for the sale of bonds prior to the referendum, so if the referendum passed the board could act quickly to take advantage of low interest rates.

    “All of us knew how tenuous the market was,” Weber said. “Almost immediately after the referendum we were able to lock into a 3.2% rate.”



 
Town poised to restrict where sex offenders can live PDF Print E-mail

Officials authorize creating ordinance after residents express concerns about existing facility

    Town of Port Washington officials Monday authorized their planner and town attorney to draw up an ordinance that would limit where sex offenders could live.

    But officials cautioned that, even though their actions are a response to concerns voiced by residents who live near a facility where a registered sex offender lives, any new law would not affect that situation.

    That’s because the man in question already lives in the home, they said.

    “We could have an ordinance tomorrow and it wouldn’t change anything up there,” Town Chairman Jim Melichar said.

    Board members said Monday they are looking at ordinances used by other communities to pattern one for the township.

    “The biggest concern is how changeable it would be,” Melichar said.

    Town Supr. Jim Rychtik said, “We don’t want to create something that’s in conflict with state law.”

    Many of the ordinances used in other communities limit the places where registered sex offenders live to areas more than 1,000 feet from parks and similar public areas, board members said. But, they said, there are still plenty of questions to be answered.

    One important question, officials said, is whether natural areas such as the Forest Beach Migratory Preserve or the Sauk Creek Nature Preserve would be considered public parks, since they are owned and operated by the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust.

    The Ozaukee Interurban Trail is another question, they said, noting it is used by bicyclists of all ages.

    “We need to figure out what we can regulate under state statutes and what we have in the town that falls within those guidelines,” Rychtik said, otherwise any ordinance drawn up may be moot.

    Supr. Mike Didier also questioned the definition of a sex offender.

    “Is it the guy who streaked the baseball game when he was 17 years old and there was a 14-year-old in the stands?” he asked.

     The town can’t regulate sex offenders so tightly that there is no where for them to live, officials noted.

    “Our business is trying to create a safe community,” Rychtik said.

    The Town of Port is not the only community in Ozaukee County grappling with the issue. The Town of Cedarburg is expected to take up the issue, Didier said, noting every community in the county except for the townships and the City of Port already have an ordinance regulating where sex offenders can live.

    The issue of housing sex offenders came before the board last month when more than a dozen residents living near Upper Forest Beach Road told officials they are concerned for their safety.

    Monica Reyes, CEO of Abundance of Life, which has operated what she called an adult family home for people with disabilities at 4870 Upper Forest Beach Rd. for more than a year, said in an interview that one of the three residents is a registered sex offender who has completed his jail time and is under supervision.

    Her agency works within guidelines established by probation and parole officials to protect the safety of the residents, staff and community, Reyes said.

    “We have protocols in place for that,” she said.

    The Plan Commission could take up the proposed ordinance as soon as its Wednesday, May 13, meeting.



 
Food Pantry cupboards alarmingly bare as need persists PDF Print E-mail

Addressing unexplained food shortage will be priority for Port Washington agency’s new director

    The shelves of the Port Washington Food Pantry are running woefully low, and officials from the agency are seeking help to fill them.

    Filling them will be the first order of business for new director Chris Flint of Port Washington, who on Friday, May 1, will replace longtime administrator Joy Dreier, who retired in January.

    That job will be made a little easier  Saturday, May 9, when the postal carriers hold their annual food drive. People are asked to put donations next to their mailbox, where they will be picked up by mail carriers and brought to the Food Pantry.

    Last year’s drive brought in 8,200 pounds of food — enough to last the Pantry about 3-1/2 weeks, said Bob Dreier, president of the Food Pantry board of directors.

    “It’s unbelievable. The shelves are really low,” said longtime volunteer Cathy Schowalter, who has been filling in for Joy Dreier. “It’s the lowest I’ve ever seen them.

    “I really hope people realize the need we have for food.”

    Clients at the Pantry are given bags of food, and in recent weeks she’s had to buy far more than normal to make sure the bags are full, Schowalter said.

    Joy Dreier said it’s typical to see the shelves run low later in the year, since food drives aren’t generally held in summer, but this is earlier than normal.

    She’s not sure why, but noted that the director of Family Sharing told her they are facing the same issue.

    Schowalter noted that new clients are coming to the Pantry every week.

    “I’ve had so many new clients this year,” Schowalter said. “Your heart goes out to them hearing their situations. It really makes you realize how good you have it.”

     The Food Pantry has been serving about 97 families each week, Bob Dreier said, adding that the agency’s client list has 242 registered families representing 667 individuals.

    Flint, a New York native, will become only the third director of the Food Pantry.

    “I’m excited , anxious, nervous,” she said. “I have big shoes to fill.”

    Flint, who has a degree in math, spent much of her career in the retail sector in New York, Chicago, Massachusetts and Milwaukee.

    In 2007, she lost her job to downsizing after the company she was working for was bought out. That same year, her husband died.

    Looking for a job, she had a flash of inspiration while reading the newspaper one day.

    “I thought, ‘I can be a Realtor. Why not?’” Flint said.

    She went to school and became a real estate agent with Realty Executives.

    She retired last year.

    “I loved the challenge, but you reach a point where you say, ‘Enough,’” Flint said.

    That’s not to say she sat at home waiting for her next opportunity. Flint is the treasurer of the Port Washington Womans Club, is active at St. Peter of Alcantara Catholic Church, where she is an usher, Eucharistic minister and member of the cluster council, and does some work at the Ozaukee
Sports Center.

    Flint didn’t volunteer at the Food Pantry, but after Joy Dreier retired and no one stepped forward to fill her post, board member Phil Groothousen approached her to see if she would be interested in the job.

    She’s now working with the Dreiers to learn the job.

    “My goal is just to make sure we keep going and serving the people who need our help,” Flint said. “It’s a shame so many people need us.”

    That’s been the goal since the Food Pantry was formed in 1982, Joy Dreier said. At that time, Ellie Schiff, who worked at Cope Services, recognized the need because of the large number of calls related to hunger she received at the hotline.

    She came to the St. Peter’s Parish Council and presented a plant to start a food pantry, asking parishioners to bring a food item to Mass each week to help the hungry, Joy Dreier said.

    Working through the county’s Social Services Department, the priest initially handed out bags of food to people who sought them. Later, she and Schiff would come in on Tuesdays to organize things.

    Eventually the operation moved to the basement of the rectory, where it continues to open its doors to those in need on Tuesday mornings. Eighty-four volunteers staff the Pantry.

    “It all seems simplistic, but it worked,” said Joy Dreier, who took over as administrator of the Food Pantry in 1984. “It grew and grew and grew.”

City prepares financing district for subdivision PDF Print E-mail

Officials fine-tuning TIF plan for Cedar Vineyard project that also needs $1 million from county to create park

    Port Washington officials said Tuesday that a tax incremental financing district needed for the proposed Cedar Vineyard subdivision on the city’s far south side is expected to be approved in June.

    And Ozaukee County officials are expected to move quickly after that — perhaps the following day, depending on the timing — to vote on a funding resolution that would allocate as much as $1 million to help purchase more than a mile of shoreland and an environmentally sensitive area of the subdivision to create a public park.    

    The project had appeared to be on a fast track after it was proposed in January, but city and county officials said that there are practical considerations that have slowed the process down.

    City officials are still working to determine cost estimates for the TIF district, particularly the price of extending sewer and water service to the subdivision, and considering the borders of the district.

    “At one point, there was a rush to this,” said Randy Tetzlaff, the city’s director of planning and development. “We’re not trying to stall it at all. It’s just not ready.”

    And county officials, who originally said the funding resolution could come to a vote in April, now say they won’t act on the matter until the TIF district is established.

    County Administrator Tom Meaux said a cost-sharing agreement will be part of the TIF plan, and that needs to be in place before the vote.

    “It’s integral to the deal,” he said.

    County Supr. Dan Becker, who is also a City of Port Washington alderman, said the reason for timing is two-fold.

    It will demonstrate the city’s commitment to the project, Becker said.

    “Everything will be done at the city level, and then the county can vote on its portion of the project,” he said.

    It will  also allow the county to make sure as many supervisors as possible are on hand to vote, Becker said, noting a two-third vote of the members elect, or 18, supervisors, must approve the funding resolution.

    “If you’re not at the meeting, it’s like a no vote,” he said. “We want to make sure we’re voting at a meeting where hopefully we can have 100% attendance.”

    It was difficult to schedule an earlier session for the vote, Becker said, because a number of supervisors were on vacation over the Easter holiday.

    When the county took its initial vote on funding the 101-acre nature preserve, which includes not only the environmentally sensitive Cedar Gorge but also land along the bluff and beach, 18 supervisors co-sponsored the resolution, Becker noted.

    “There is potential to get a few more favorable votes,” he said.

    The Cedar Vineyard project has much to offer both the city and county, officials said.

    The project calls for 73 home sites, a 100-acre nature conservancy, a vineyard and winery on the former VK Development property. Most of the property lies on the east side of Highway C, with the winery and a small portion of the homes on a parcel west of the highway.

    “It’s a great revenue generator,” Becker said. “It’s a low-density, high-end development that will go easy on municipal services. It’s going to be great for tourism, and we’re protecting all that public space.”

    Initial plans called for the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust, in partnership with the county, to purchase the preserve and deed it to the county.

    A state stewardship grant was expected to pay much of the cost, but since Gov. Scott Walker’s budget has thrown this into question, the city and county are being asked to contribute to the purchase.

    The county’s $1 million contribution will likely be further reduced by some funding from the stewardship fund, Becker said, as well as a pledge from developer Thomas Swarthout, president of The Highview Group, to pay a total of $325,000 in impact fees.

    Becker and Meaux said they are confident the county and city will each support the purchase of the preserve.

    “I think it’s going to be something we’ll all be proud of when it’s done,” Meaux said.

    The return goes beyond the public property to economics, Becker added.

    “This is going to give us a large return on investment,” he said. For example, the county currently receives less than $500 in property taxes from the Cedar Vineyard property, an amount estimated to increase to between $60,000 and $70,000 when it is developed.

    And the city, he said, will gain even more in property taxes.

    City officials, who at one point said they would consider financing the county’s share of the preserve through the TIF district if the County Board didn’t approve the funding, have backed off from that stance.

    “It has got to be a partnership,” Tetzlaff said. “It’s going to be a county park.”

    City Administrator Mark Grams said, “It’s still an option, but it all comes down to finances.”

    City officials are continuing work on the TIF project plan, which will include the city’s $1 million share of the cost of buying the preserve.

    Tetzlaff said the city is being careful to ensure the TIF district isn’t a burden on taxpayers. However, he said, it is necessary to provide the utilities needed for the subdivision.

    “It’s just an enormous cost to get the sewer and water done,” he said, noting initial estimates were between $5 million and $6 million.

    Officials are looking at where to best place a small lift station on the south side of the development to minimize the costs, Tetzlaff said.   

    The city is also looking at the boundaries of the district, he said, noting the city’s TIF consultant recommended incorporating some industrial park land into the district.

    The city has negotiated an agreement with Anchor Bank that would allow the city to connect the Cedar Vineyard property to land in the industrial park, Tetzlaff said.

    “We have some opportunities in the industrial park,” he said, noting Construction Forms has talked about expanding in the future and Allen Edmonds owns some property it may want to develop.

    Tetzlaff said the Plan Commission is expected to hold a public hearing on the TIF project plan and vote on it as soon as its May 21 meeting.

    If it’s not ready for that session, he said, a special meeting could be held in early June.

    That would allow the Common Council to act on the plan in June, Tetzlaff said.

    After the council approves the plan, it will go to the Joint Review Board — which consists of representatives of the city, county, Port Washington-Saukville School District and Milwaukee Area Technical College Board, as well as one citizen member — for approval.

    After that, the plan will go to the Department of Revenue for certification, Tetzlaff said.



 
No grant money expected for dock railing PDF Print E-mail

With outside funds unavailable, Port mayor wants council to find way to install safety upgrade in lakefront park this year

    Port Washington officials need to recognize that grant money won’t pay for a railing along the promenade at Coal Dock Park, Mayor Tom Mlada said.

    “The bottom line is that we need to address it,” he said. “I think it’s a question the council will ultimately have to take up.

    “I’d like to see it done in 2015.”

    At the very least, Mlada said, he would like the city to come up with a plan of action so a railing could be installed next year.

    “The first step is to get the right solution in place,” he said.

    The Coal Dock Committee on Friday took up the issue but made no recommendation, primarily because there isn’t any money available to construct the railing, Public Works Director Rob Vanden Noven, chairman of the committee, said.

    “Right now, it’s about finances,” he said, noting the cost to install the railing along the 1,000-foot-long promenade is estimated at $200,000.

    The high cost is due, in part, to the fact the railing would match the remainder of the city’s lakefront railings and be constructed out of materials that won’t rust and will minimize maintenance.

    “What we had hoped for in grants is either gone or wasn’t there for this purpose,” Vanden Noven said.

    The city has looked at diverting some grant money from other projects in the park to the railing, but that hasn’t been allowed, he said.

    The reason the city didn’t initially install the railing is that it had expected large boats to moor along the promenade, and the railing would limit the ability of these ships to do that, Vanden Noven said.

    The promenade was also made particularly wide — 18-1/2 feet — so people could keep youngsters away from the edge while still enjoying the lakefront views, he added.

    But the expected large boat traffic hasn’t materialized, Vanden Noven said.

    “If the boats aren’t coming in, the question (of a railing) comes down to cost,”  he said.

    Even if boats come in, the city could construct gates along the railing that would allow boats to moor in the area.

    The railing is important, Mlada said, because the lack of one is keeping people away from the park — one of Port’s premier lakeside recreational spaces.

    “It’s a bit of a limitation, especially for parents with young children,” he said. “There’s a collective feeling this should get done. Let’s figure out a way to get it done.

    “I think people have generally been understanding, but you reach a point ... we’re two-plus years into this and it’s time to take action.”

    Mlada said Vanden Noven was asked to look at options for the railing and updated cost figures for the Coal Dock Committee to consider in May.

    The Parks and Recreation Board, which has consistently sought to have a railing installed in the park, will also be asked for a recommendation on the matter, Mlada said.

    He then expects the Common Council to take up the issue.

    There are a number of ways the city could finance the cost of the railing, Mlada said.

    “There are options we could explore,” he said.Daily-Press

    The city could include funding in a borrowing issue it is expected to approve next year, he said.

    Or, if the city sells the lakefront parking lot adjacent to the north slip, it could use some of the proceeds to help pay for the railing, Mlada said.

    The Parks and Recreation Board also recently suggested that the railing be broken into segments and sponsorships be sought for each leg.

    Some money has already been raised from the community to offset the cost of the railing. The Port Washington-Saukville Jaycees dedicated the $6,000 it raised in its inaugural Land Regatta Run and Walk last year for the project, and the Port Washington Woman’s Club has also pledged $1,000 for the railing.
