Paddock Lake approves property revaluation in 2018

The Paddock Lake Village Board has approved revaluation of property in the village to stay within range of increasing market values.

The “market update” of all property within the village will not require visits to individual properties. It will be performed by Associated Appraisals during 2018.

The estimated cost of the work will be $29,850. That will be paid over the next two fiscal years.

Current property assessments have fallen to 92 percent of market value, according to village administrator Tim Popanda. The state Department of Revenue requires assessments to be above 90 percent of market value.

The last market update in Paddock Lake was performed in 2014. The last full revaluation occurred in 2006.

At a committee of the whole meeting last week, village President Terry Burns said he was somewhat conflicted about the issue. He was not sure if recent increases in market value are evidence of a temporary bubble.

“I have to tell you I kind of struggled with this,” said Burns. “If it’s a blip in the market by this time next year, it would be stabilized.”

Ultimately, however, Burns said he felt the revaluation was needed now.

“The whole point of this is we don’t want to get stuck behind the eight ball so that values are so diminished that taxpayers will get hit with a large increase,” Burns said.

Many communities do at least a market update every two years, Popanda said at the committee of the whole meeting.

“It gets us closer to accurate,” Popanda said.

The new assessed values will show up on the 2018 property tax bill payable in 2019.

Anonymous donor willing to match donations for Bristol Town Hall move

An exterior view of the old Bristol Town Hall along Highway C in Bristol Woods County Park.

The Bristol Wisconsin Historical Society has found an anonymous donor willing to give its drive to relocate the 1870 Bristol Town Hall a substantial financial boost.

The anonymous donor will match the first $5,000 raised to assist in moving and restoring the hall to its new location, the society announced in a news release last week.

The Bristol Wisconsin Historical Society is working to move the 1870 Bristol Town Hall during the summer of 2018 to a new location at Fireman’s Park, at 83rd Street and 198th Avenue. The building is currently located in Bristol Woods County Park along Highway C, its original location. It has been used by the county government for storage. It lacks utilities and adjacent parking in its current location.

Once the building is moved and restored, it will be opened as a local museum, society officials say.

The old town hall contains a cement formed chimney, unlike other wood structures of the time, and is the oldest un-remodeled structure in Bristol. It is the first town hall in Bristol and was used as a gathering place for Bristol farm families.

The society’s intent is to use the building in its new more central location as an educational opportunity for children and families. Artifacts from the Bristol area will be displayed so people can lean what is was like living in the past.

The Society is a 501(c) (3) tax deducible organization. To donate, email BristolWiHist@gmail.com or call John McCabe 262-857- 9115 or Greta Menke 262-857- 7469. A receipt will be provided if requested.

Randall to pay to abandon well at old landfill site

The Randall Town Board approved spending $5,000 to abandon a well at the old landfill site in Bassett.

The work will be done by Sigma Single Source. The board approved spending the money at Thursday’s regular board meeting.

Town Clerk Callie Rucker said the DNR representatives told her that inspections are supposed to happen every five years, but village officials believe the Randall site had not been inspected for about 20 years.

He is on Felony Parole for a 2003 incident where he was charged with two counts of Operating while Intoxicated Causing Death.

KCSD investigation is ongoing.
