Waldo adopts late fee for dog licenses

by Rodney Schroeter of The Review staff

WALDO—A late fee will be charged to dog owners who do not renew their dogs’ licenses by the April 1 deadline.

To accomplish this, the Village Board passed its first ordinance of 2016 Monday. This establishes a $15 charge for a dog owner missing the license renewal deadline. This charge is in addition to the regular dog license fee and is a low-end estimate of the clerical costs to the village of following up with late renewals.

The resolution had been discussed at length at the board’s January meeting, but no action was taken then due to the absence of Village President Dan Schneider. The board voted unanimously to pass the ordinance Monday.

Schneider informed board members of an upcoming conference on removing phosphorous from treated water. It will be held in Madison on Feb. 25. Municipalities with water treatment plants are facing tighter controls on phosphorous levels. Schneider encouraged at least one board member to attend. “I think it would be excellent information for the board,” he said.

Schneider told the board that he’d recently exchanged emails with the village’s lawyers regarding development on Hunters Grove. The attorneys have filed a motion to compel arbitration. “Instead of handling it in the courts, the contract actually has an arbitration clause in it that, if there’s any dispute on work being done, undone, or payments or any of that kind, it goes to a third-party arbitrator,” Schneider said.

Schneider said it would be best if the matter could be settled soon, as a letter of credit, signed by developer Bill Haas and held by the village, expires at the end of March. Haas’ attorney has been unable to contact Haas, Schneider was told. Schneider told the board he was working with the village’s attorneys to see if the letter of credit could be extended.

The board unanimously approved two requests to rent village facilities, three operator licenses and a temporary liquor license for the Waldo Fire Department for its March 13 brat fry.

Police report for Waldo for the past month: three citations ($60 for winter parking violations); four warnings; five complaints investigated (an EMS call, four winter parking violations); 10 property checks; no arrests made, traffic accidents investigated, court appearances or warrants.
