Winter weather advisory issued; latest snow outlook

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for an area of Wisconsin that includes Kenosha County.

The advisory, which calls for sizable snow and high winds, is set to be in effect from 6 p.m., Monday to 6 p.m., Tuesday.

Snow is expected to start falling late this afternoon and pick up during evening hours with the peak coming from about 8 p.m., Monday to 8 a.m., Tuesday. Snow is likely to continue until Tuesday 5 p.m.

In all, our area could see 3 to 6 inches of snow, says the latest, local NWS forecast.

The snow will be accompanied by a steady 15 to 20 mph wind with gusts as high as 30 mph. Says the NWS about the result of the snow and wind:

Travel could be very difficult. Patchy blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.”

After the early week snow blast, snow is not in the forecast again until Saturday. High temperatures are expected to be in the high 20s to low 30s this week. Monday’s and Tuesday’s high temperature will be 31.

Winter weather advisories are issued for “any amount of freezing rain, or when 2 to 4 inches of snow (alone or in combination with sleet and freezing rain), is expected to cause a significant inconvenience, but not serious enough to warrant a warning,” says the NWS.

The advisory area is focused on southern Wisconsin.

The forecast is little more snowy to the south of us in Illinois. Lake County is under a winter storm warning with a forecast of 4 to 8 inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday. Chicago has a forecast of 4 to 9 inches of snow.

UPDATE about 4 p.m. — NWS has upgraded to a winter storm warning. Details here.

Paddock Lake moving to more regular property revaluation

The Paddock Lake Village Board has hired its property assessment contractor to perform more frequent revaluations over the next five years at a regular interval in an effort to keep property values closer to market values.

The result, village official expect, should be less volatile village property tax bills.

The five-year contract with Associated Appraisal Services was awarded Wednesday. The village will pay $19,350 each year for 2021 through 2025.

The new contract was approved by a 5 to 2 vote with Trustee Robert Spencer and Scott Garland voting against.

At a committee of the whole meeting last week, Village President Terry Burns said a revaluation was needed this year because there is significant documentation that property in the village is currently valued for tax purposes at less than 90 percent of market value.

State regulations call for property values used for taxes to be as close to market values, with a minimum standard of 90 percent set.

Under the new plan, a revaluation will be done every odd year. In the other years, a less intense maintenance valuation will be done.

By revaluing more often, the mill rate for the village portion of the property tax bill should be shielded from being up and then down. Properties pay taxes based on a rate per $1,000 of assessed valued.

If your property value rises close to the average amount during a revaluation, your taxes should stay about the same, all other factors — such as the levy (the total amount of tax money collected) — being the same. If your property increases less than average, your village property tax may go down. If your property increases more than average, your tax may go up.

Revaluing every other year should keep values within 5 percent of market value, Burns said.

Village administrator Tim Popanda said at the committee of the whole meeting that most surrounding municipalities revalue every two years.

At Wednesday’s meeting, Spencer objected to approving the contract, criticizing the concept of frequent revaluations and an auto renewal clause in the contract. Instead of approval Wednesday, he wanted the village to go out for bids on assessing services.

“This contract is horrible,” Spencer said.

Popanda explained that the contract was not bid because it is technically an extension of an existing contract. The new contract can be canceled with 60 days notice by either party.

Popanda and Burns also praised the service the village receives from Associated Appraisal. As evidence, they pointed out that most disputes about property values are resolved between the property owner and Associated at the open book level, with few cases advancing to the Board of Review step.

“We have never had problems with this company,” Burns said Wedneday.

Speed of expanded vaccination here depends on available supply, says county health officer

Kenosha County announced some new information Wednesday about COVID-19 vaccination in the wake of new state guidelines announced Tuesday.

From a news release from the Joint Information Center:

With the State of Wisconsin’s announcement Tuesday that all adults 65 and over will be eligible to begin receiving the COVID-19 vaccine next week, the Kenosha County Division of Health looks forward to announcing more information about the local distribution of the vaccine as soon as it is available, Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit said.

Freiheit said this will include the organization of vaccination clinics, the details of which are currently being established.

While eligibility is being extended to the 65-plus population, the speed with which this group and others will be vaccinated will depend upon the available supply of the vaccine, Freiheit noted.

“Kenosha County is actively planning for this process, although it is important to note that these plans are contingent upon the availability of the COVID-19 vaccines,” Freiheit said. “In the meantime, we urge those frontline health care workers who are part of Group 1a to try to connect with a provider and get vaccinated as soon as possible, as supplies allow.”

Those who are in Group 1a (listed below) and live and/or work in Kenosha County may receive provider information by filling out an online signup form available on the Kenosha County COVID-19 Information Hub website, at http://bit.ly/KCCOVIDHub. Those who sign up will receive information via email once vaccine is available to them.

Group 1a includes:
— Healthcare personnel, including:
— Anesthesia related team members
— Behavior health providers, including psychologists, therapists, counselors
— Certified nursing assistant, nursing assistant, nurse aide, medical assistant
— Chiropractors
— Clinical ethicists
— Dental services, including dentist, dental hygienist, dental assistants
— Direct care personnel, for example, people who provide direct care to patients, including in their homes (for example, personal care assistant, home health worker)
— Emergency medical responders (EMR), including emergency medical
technician/paramedic including all levels of EMRs
— Environmental services, food & nutrition, buildings & grounds in patient care setting

— Health care trainees
— Hospice workers
— Nurses, including community settings
— Long-term care facility staff
— Pharmacists/pharmacist assistants
— Phlebotomists and laboratory personnel
— Physician assistants/nurse practitioners
— Physicians (MD/DO – all settings)
— Public health workers providing vaccines and testing for COVID-19
— Radiation therapy technologists (RTTs)/radiologic technologists (RTs)
— Respiratory therapists
— Security personnel
— Spiritual care providers
— Social work, case management, Child Life staff
— Therapy services, for example, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy
— Transportation services to and from health care settings, for example, testing sites, dialysis centers, ambulatory care
— Other health care personnel who have CDC defined exposure
— Other professionals and lay people who provide services as defined above
— Residents of long-term care facilities
— Firefighters, law enforcement officers and corrections personnel

While the 65-and-over group becomes eligible on Monday, Jan. 25, Phase 1b and 1c groups including those under 65 will be finalized in the coming weeks. The vaccine will be more widely available to the public sometime this spring or summer, pending state and federal guidance and availability.

“We ask for everyone’s patience as we continue through this process,” Freiheit said. “The 65-and-over group represents a large share of our population and it will take time to make the vaccine available to as many of them as possible, but we do know that this is the demographic that is most vulnerable to COVID-19 and it is important to get them vaccinated. I look forward to accomplishing that as quickly as possible and moving us ever closer to our ultimate goal of herd immunity and the end of COVID-19.”

Cold start to Wednesday

Photo by kconnors via morgueFile.com

Numbers can be deceptive if you don’t know the whole story. Such is the case with the latest, local National Weather Service forecast for Wednesday.

There’s going to be a high of 32 Wednesday. But that won’t be reached until about 10 p.m.

In the meantime, the morning will be cold. At 5:45 a.m. , it’s about 10. It may be noon before the thermometer gets into the 20s.

Wind chill will be a factor too, with the low temperature the factor nin the morning and then increasing wind speed contributing as the day goes on.

With Wednesday night’s low reaching just 27, Thursday looks like a nice late January day: High in the low 30s and sunny.
