City chided for hurrying land deal without public input PDF Print E-mail

Developer says more debate was needed before council started sales talks with Ansay

Port Washington developer Gertjan van den Broek on Tuesday chided the Common Council for its recent decision to negotiate exclusively with Ansay Development for the purchase of a 44-acre parcel of city-owned land.

“The question I kept asking myself is how did I miss the start of this,” he told aldermen, saying he was caught off guard by the council’s actions.

In the past, he said, officials have been open about the potential sale of property, publicly discussing efforts to redevelop land whether it is publicly or privately owned, and seeking input on the best uses.

“I’m a firm believer in the marketplace of ideas,” he said. “I’ve always thought the city was good at seeking ideas.”

Many of these discussions start at the Community Development Authority, he said, noting that in October the group talked about such things as the NorthPort Shopping Center, Jadair property, a former trailer park on South Spring Street and the marina district concept.

The controversial decision to seek proposals for a city-owned marina parking lot was discussed by the CDA for months, he noted.

“I think it’s a very good precedent for our city to open opportunities,” he said. “Let the best ideas rise to the top.”

That didn’t happen in this case, van den Broek said. 

Instead, the city held a special meeting to consider a proposal by Ansay Development to create a corporate headquarters, training center and boutique hotel on 44 acres of undeveloped, city-owned land just south of the We Energies power plant and agreed to negotiate exclusively with the firm for 60 days.

Van den Broek noted that the original plat of Port Washington showed a city of 48.6 acres — nearly the same size as the parcel Ansay wants to buy.

“It’s a really important site,” he said, adding the city needs to take care to consider all the potential uses in order to find the right one for the community.

Supervisors stand by hiring of Karrels after she came under fire from radio show host for salary miscalculation

The Port Washington Town Board on Monday gave Town Clerk Cheryl Karrels a ringing endorsement and reappointed her to a one-year term, settling, officials hope, any questions about her performance.

The town came under fire earlier this month from WISN radio talk show host Mark Belling after Karrels mistakenly overpaid herself because of an error in a resolution approved by the board. Karrels refunded the overpayment as soon as the mistake was realized.

Town Chairman Jim Melichar called it an honest mistake and said if anyone is to blame it’s him because he didn’t catch the error before the ordinance was approved.

Although the board on Monday voted unanimously to reappoint Karrels, members disagreed over how much she should be paid.  According to the resolution approved by Melichar and Supr. Mike Didier, Karrels’ salary will remain at $35,100 a year. She is also eligible to receive a maximum of 60 per diem payments of $50 for attending meetings and training sessions.

Supr. Jim Rychtik, who voted against the measure, argued Karrels should be paid $39,000 a year, the same salary former clerk Jennifer Schlenvogt received.

“As far as I’m concerned, you’re doing a great job,” Rychtik told Karrels. “Everything is getting done.”

Karrels, however, said she doesn’t want more money.

“I wasn’t looking for a raise,” she said. “And the 60 per diem (payments) ... that’s a lot.”

During an interview, Karrels added, “I didn’t want to be just handed a raise. This will be a big election year. I want to earn a raise.”

Karrels said the town should instead consider increasing the number of per diem payments for Treasurer Mary Sampont, who is eligible to receive only 29 payments. 

“Mary puts in all these hours collecting taxes and doesn’t get paid for them,” Karrels said.

Town officials seemed to agree but noted that because Sampont is an elected official, her compensation is set by town electors. They said the issue could be considered during the meeting of the electors in spring.

Picked from several candidates, Karrels was named clerk in July to succeed Schlenvogt, who resigned on June 30.

According to the minutes of the July 10 Town Board meeting, officials agreed to pay Karrels 10% less than Schlenvogt, which amounted to $35,100. However, the resolution formally appointing Karrels clerk erroneously listed the salary at $37,000.

Karrels said that when she began work on July 15, she found the resolution on her desk and, unaware of the mistake, used it to determine her pay.

After the mistake was discovered and Town Attorney Steve Cain said on Dec. 8 that he interpreted the documents to mean she should be paid $35,100 plus per diem pay, Karrels said she calculated the overpayment and wrote a check to the town for that amount.

“I wanted it clean and done immediately,” she said earlier this month.

Melichar said he believes the mistake occurred because Cain added per diem payments to Schlenvogt’s salary, then reduced the total amount by 10% when calculating Karrels’ salary instead of just using Schlenvogt’s annual salary.

“It was an oversight by all of us,” Melichar said. “I’ll take responsibility because I’m the chairman.”

 
Lighthouse news good and bad for city PDF Print E-mail

Port gets more time for application to obtain structure, but officials concerned that Geek Group is still in running

Port Washington officials received good news and bad news regarding their application for the city’s lighthouse this week, Mayor Tom Mlada said.

The good news is that the deadline for the city’s application to obtain the lighthouse from the federal government  has been extended to Jan. 21, giving officials more time to beef up the form, Mlada said.

But the bad news is that the Geek Group, a Michigan-based  nonprofit agency aimed at fostering people’s interest in science and engineering, still plans to submit an application for the lighthouse, Mlada said.

As a matter of fact, Mlada said, the Geek Group had also sought and been granted an extension on the application deadline by the National Park Service.

City officials had hoped that the fact the Geek Group did not send a representative to an inspection of the lighthouse indicated the organization was no longer interested in acquiring the structure.

Chris Boden, president and chief executive officer of the Geek Group, would not comment Tuesday on whether the group planned to submit an application for the lighthouse.

In July, Boden said that if the group acquired the lighthouse, it would open it up to its members to do environmental and alternative energy research.

“We’re not going to tear it down,” he said at the time, adding the Geek Group realizes the importance the lighthouse has to the city. “We have a deep appreciation for that. That’s why we’re not going to do anything stupid. We’re very community oriented.”

The Coast Guard declared the lighthouse surplus property earlier this year. It was then  placed on a list of properties to be divested by the federal government. Only two groups, the city and the Geek Group, are vying for ownership of the structure. 

Although acquiring and maintaining a lighthouse would be expensive — the estimated cost of repairing the porthole windows came in at $18,000, Mlada said — for Port officials, the decision to seek ownership of the structure was relatively easy. The Art Deco-styled lighthouse, which has graced the harbor since 1935, is a city landmark.

For many people, a trip to Port isn’t complete without a visit to the lighthouse, which is a symbol of the community used on everything from the city logo to postcards.

Mlada said the deadline extension will give the city time to refine its application.

“We need to make this application as robust as possible,” he said. “We’ve put a lot of effort into this, and I want to make sure what we submit reflects that.”

He noted that the city is seeking letters of support for its application to show the backing the city has received in its quest for the structure.

The city has already invested significantly in the lighthouse, Mlada noted. It is working with the Army Corps of Engineers to stabilize the breakwater leading to the lighthouse and investing a significant amount of time and money in that venture, and making improvements that will allow more people to access the structure. 

Mlada said he hopes to present the Common Council with a preliminary application on Jan. 5, although the completed document isn’t due until Jan. 21.

After the document is submitted to the federal government, there is a 60-day review period before officials will learn whether the city or the Geek Group will get the lighthouse.

“I’m going to move forward with the thought that at the end of March we’re going to be offered conveyance of the lighthouse,” Mlada said.

Melichar blames radio host, ex-clerk for turning innocent mistake into innuendos of corruption

Port Washington Town Chairman Jim Melichar went on the offensive this week, saying a Milwaukee radio talk show host falsely accused the town of corruption because of a $713 salary mistake that was the result of an honest error.

“For that amount of money, we were exposed as a corrupt town by Mark Belling. Thank you, former clerk,” Melichar, who said former town clerk Jennifer Schlenvogt contacted Belling, wrote in a letter to residents.

Melichar’s letter was prompted by a segment on Belling’s WISN radio show last week that, he said, unfairly slammed the Town Board and recently appointed Town Clerk Cheryl Karrels, who refunded the overpayment shortly after the mistake was discovered. 

Karrels said Tuesday she has been criticized by a number of residents since the radio show aired.

“I’ve had people say I’m stealing from the town,” she said. “I’m new to this. You learn and you fix things. That’s what happened here.”

Schlenvogt, who resigned as clerk on June 30 and questioned Karrels’ salary at last week’s town board meeting, did not return phone calls but in an e-mail wrote that the salary issue has led her to question how well the town board is overseeing the clerk’s work. 

The salary discrepancy came to light last week as the town board reviewed the budget and discussed the clerk’s salary. 

While the minutes of the July 10 Town Board meeting setting Karrels’ salary called for her to receive 10% less than Schlenvogt — which would have amounted to $35,100 annually — the resolution formally appointing Karrels set the salary at $37,000.

When she began work on July 15, Karrels said, she found the salary resolution on her desk and used the figure in it to determine her semiweekly pay, not realizing there was a discrepancy.

The board decided on Dec. 7 to have Town Attorney Steve Cain review the matter. When Cain said on Dec. 8 that he interpreted the documents as setting the annual salary at $35,100 plus per diem pay, Karrels said she immediately calculated the overpayment and wrote a check to the township for that amount.

“I wanted it clean and done immediately,” Karrels said.

“It was an oversight by all of us,” Melichar said. “I’ll take responsibility because I’m the chairman.”

Melichar said he believes the mistake occurred because Cain may have combined Schlenvogt’s salary and per diem pay instead of using just her annual salary when calculating Karrels’ salary.

Schlenvogt has been critical of Karrels’ performance, Melichar said, but hasn’t given her a chance to learn the job.

“The former clerk said it would take three years for a new clerk to get up to speed with all that has to be done,” he wrote. “She got 5.5 years of support from the board. She only gave Cheryl four months. Don’t know why, but in a small town you never know.

“There was a motion made, a resolution printed, all public record, it has been corrected.”

Melichar noted that the town had repeatedly tried to contact Schlenvogt to help train the new clerk, but she did not respond.

In her e-mail, Schlenvogt said she offered to interview and train the next clerk. 

“No one took me up on that offer,” she wrote.

 
City poised to sell former water tower land PDF Print E-mail

Works Board will consider sale of west side parcel to neighbors before marketing it

Port Washington officials are preparing to sell yet another piece of city-owned land.

The parcel — the third the city has been asked to consider selling this year — runs between Grand Avenue and Larabee Street west of Eva Street.

It was the site of a water tower until the late 1970s, when the west-side water tower was built behind what is today Eernisse Funeral Home, officials said.

The strip of land is 61 feet long, offering the potential for the city to sell two buildable lots, one fronting Grand Avenue and the other fronting Larabee Street, Public Works Director Rob Vanden Noven said.

“We really don’t need this land,” he said.

Vanden Noven said he would recommend that the Board of Public Works offer the land to the neighboring property owners before marketing it.

The land could be split among the four adjoining properties, he noted, which would eliminate the possibility it would be built on.

If the neighbors don’t buy the property, it could then be sold, he said.

The Board of Public Works on Tuesday was scheduled to consider the possible sale of property owned by the water utility, but that meeting was cancelled due to a lack of a quorum.

The matter will be taken up by the board at its next meeting, Vanden Noven said.

“This is just the very first step in the process,” he said.

If the board decides to sell the property, it would have to be declared surplus land by the Plan Commission and the Common Council would have to decide how to sell it. The city could auction it or market it with a real estate office.

The move to sell the land comes as officials are looking at city-owned properties that aren’t being used to determine whether they should be  retained or sold and put back on the tax rolls.

The decision to look at selling this particular property was made now because the city is rebuilding Larabee Street next year, Vanden Noven said.

If the property is sold for development, the city would install sewer and water services for the lot off Larabee Street, he said.

This isn’t the first city-owned parcel to be put up for sale this year.

Earlier this year, the Common Council agreed to sell a city-owned waterfront parking lot off the north slip marina — a controversial decision opposed by residents who said the community should not sell valuable harborside land. 

Officials are negotiating with Madison-based developer Chris Long, who plans to create a Paramount Blues-related entertainment complex on the land.

Last month, aldermen agreed to consider selling a 44-acre parcel the city owns just south of the We Energies power plant.
