The retest showed  73 E.coli/100 ml.

The caution was placed on swimming at the beach after an elevated test result from a sample taken Tuesday.

The State Department of Health recommends posting warnings at beaches when the test results indicate a E.coli level of 300/100ml or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100ml. Wheatland (Lilly Lake) has a policy of posting an advisory for a level of E.coli 235/100 mL or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100ml.

School buses here to begin using new 8-light warning system

School buses in Wisconsin will begin looking a little different when they are preparing to make a stop starting this school year.

Heidi Mingesz, Wilmot Terminal manager, for Dousman Transport Co., Inc. which carries students for many Western Kenosha County school districts, shared the following info about the new 8-light warning light system:

Dousman Transport Wisconsin school buses will begin using an eight-light system beginning Aug. 16, thanks to a law that was passed earlier this year. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards Section 108, added four additional warning lights to school buses in 1968. The additional lamps are amber in color and inboard of the red warning lights; intended to signal an upcoming stop to drivers and overridden by the red lights and stop sign as the entry door is opened. Many states adopted the eight-light system during the 1970s and 1980s. Wisconsin was the single remaining state to adopt this safety feature, which now goes into effect on August 16. Most buses in Wisconsin will be switched to this new light system, depending on the model year of the school bus. The 8-light system incorporates the use of amber lights. The amber lights will flash before the red lights as a ‘Warning’ that the bus is preparing to stop, similar to a traffic light. The additional lights alert vehicles traveling around a school bus that they should prepare to stop. Wisconsin DOT has prepared a video to demonstrate how the light system works and gives additional information. The video is here:

The link is also on the WSBA website: www.wi-sba.org as well as the association Facebook page. As Wisconsin prepares for another school year, Watch for School Buses with amber and red lights flashing. They are preparing to stop or are Stopped! It’s against the law to not stop for a school bus, but more importantly, our children are counting on You for their safety in getting to school and home! The Wisconsin School Bus Association, founded in 1968, promotes and encourages safety in school bus transportation in Wisconsin. The association represents more than 200 operator companies, school districts, and affiliated service companies.

Bristol pursuing tree grant for conservation park

A plan for the proposed park from 2009. Click image for a larger view.

Bristol is pursuing a grant to fund 125 trees for the planned conservation park at Highways 45 and 50.

The Village Board on Monday unanimously approved applying for the Urban Forestry Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

The $25,000 grant, if received, will require the village to pay a match of $12,500, said village administrator Randy Kerkman.

The park is designed to be a passive use, natural area type park, Kerkman said.

“The whole goal of that park was to bring it back to where it was before man messed it up,” Kerkman said

Plans call for the trees to be planted along an elevated ridge on the southeast end of the 30-acre property, which is adjacent to the Bristol Bay residential development.

Kerkman said he feels the village stands a good chance of receiving the grant due to the amount of planning that has been done for this park.

“We’ve been waiting to get this park going for 15 years,” Kerkman said.

Other work to be done on the property includes getting rid of invasive species and building trails. The trail work might prompt seeking another grant, Kerkman said.

Once sufficient work has been done on the site to allow it to be used by the public, Kerkman said, he hopes those using the park will get interested in helping to finish the park, perhaps through groups such as Scouts.

In a separate action, the board on Monday also unanimously approved applying for a grant from American Transmission Co. that would be used for tress to be planted along 194th Avenue in the existing industrial park.

Bristol increases rates for emergency medical services

bristol-fd-flag-logo-webFor the first time since 2010 the Bristol Village Board increased what it will charge patients for delivering emergency medical services.

The new rates were presented at Monday’s Village Board meeting by village administrator Randy Kerkman and Bristol Fire & Rescue Chief John Niederer. The Village Board approved the change unanimously.

Kerkman said the rates have not been changed since 2010, even though the department made a substantial upgrade in service provided when it became a paramedic department in 2012.

Kerkman praised Niederer’s work on comparing Bristol’s charges to other departments.

“I think he did a really great job of reviewing both internally within the county and externally within the state,” Kerkman said.

The comparison showed Bristol’s charges were among the lowest in the state.

“We’re significantly lower cost than others in Wisconsin,” said village President Mike Farrell.

Niederer estimates that the increase in fees, which range from $150-$250 per services, will generate about $54,000 in increased fees charged and about $26,000 in increased revenue to the village, based on how many times the various services are charged in a typical year.

The disparity between the amount of additional fees charged and the actual increase in revenue to the village is because about 30 percent of the department’s calls are billed to Medicaid or Medicare, which reimburses at a lower rate, Kerkman said.

“The federal government is the worst payer of all,” Kerkman said referring to Medicare and Medicaid. “They pay the least.”

The new fee schedule, like the old, has different levels for residents and non residents, with non residents charged more.

Kerkman said the intention is to review the fees every year at budget time to make sure they are still in order. Trustee Ruth Atwood moved to make that review part of the resolution approving the new fees.

The charges will go into effect Oct. 1.

Here is a table comparing the current charges of several Wisconsin departments and a table projecting the revenue increase with the new rates.
