Dog Park Open House Planned For January

The Leisure Services Department, Friends of Bellevue Parks, Oak View Veterinary Hospital and a group of volunteer citizens are working to create and operate a community dog park in the Village of Bellevue. The group's mission is to facilitate the development, operation and maintenance of an off-leash dog park in the Village.

The Village's Leisure Services Department invites citizens to attend an open house / public information meeting on the possible development of a community dog park in Bellevue. Although a small group of dedicated volunteers have begun efforts to develop a dog park, village staff are looking for additional interested citizen volunteers to help coordinate efforts.

The informal gathering will take place on Monday, January 23, 2012 from 6:30 pm to 7:30pm at the Bellevue Village Hall / Public Safety Building (3100 Eaton Road).

What is a Community Dog Park?
A place where our best friends have a place to run, roll around in mud, meet new four-legged friends and even catch a ball or Frisbee.

Where is the proposed Bellevue Community Dog Park?
The proposed site is located at VandenHeuvel Park, 2282 Bellevue Street. This 22.5 acre park site is located just south of State HWY 172 along the banks of the East River. The majority of this park is part of the East River Parkway & Trail.

Stormwater Management Focus of Video Update

The Village of Bellevue has been busy making improvements toward overall water quality to meet state and federal requirements for cleaner stormwater. The following edition of the Bellevue Focus Video Update highlights these efforts.


Awarded a matching grant for constructing stormwater management facilities, the Village recently completed three projects in 2011. The grant was used for property acquisition, design, and construction of the stormwater improvements. The facilities are designed to reduce the amount of sediment and pollution into our streams and rivers by over 80%. The goal is to provide the community a high quality environment to sustain human and wildlife habitat, recreation, and clean water for generations to come.

Wet Retention Basins
Two wet retention basins were constructed, one near the intersection of Pintail & Skyview streets. The second was constructed along the north side of Daly Drive as you enter the Whiskey Creek subdivision.

Bio-swale
A bioswale was constructed at DeBroux Park, helping remove suspended solids and other pollutants from entering the creek.

For more information please see the stormwater section on the village's website.

Village Adopts 2012 Fiscal Year Budget

The Village Board of Trustees adopted its 2012 Fiscal Year Budget at their meeting on November 9, 2011.

Residents should expect to see a modest increase in the village tax rate from $2.58/$1,000 to $2.73/$1,000. The owner of a home valued at $150,000 would see an increase of $21.50 in their village taxes.

Village Board & administration began working on the budget back in May. Four budget work sessions were held during the course of the year to review priorities, expenditures and to discuss cost saving measures. After completion of the fourth budget work session, the Village Board had agreed on approximately $159,000 in operating reductions. Reductions include the elimination of several services/programs (i.e. park security, staffed yard waste site) and changes in employee benefits.

The 2012 Budget reflects the implementation of the new state law requiring employees to pay the employee share of their pension costs. This change only impacts non-represented employees in 2012. Non-represented employees will also begin contributing 15% of their health insurance premium cost in 2012, a 5% increase. The savings in premium cost to the Village is reflected in the budget.

The 2012 Budget also includes funding for the reclassification of two firefighter positions from part-time to full-time positions. This change resulted in an expenditure increase of $51,000.

In addition, the following items were significant expenditure drivers in the 2012 Budget:
  • Brown County Sheriff’s Contract
  • Economic Adjustments (Represented Employees Only)
  • Fuel and Utilities

For more information on the budget, please go to the Village's website at http://www.villageofbellevue.org.

Prescription Drug Drop Off Program Offered Through Sheriff's Department

The Brown County Sheriff's Department offers county residents the opportunity to properly discard prescription drugs at their new office, 2464 Development Drive. Drop-off times are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30pm to 2:00pm.

Accepted materials include pills, liquids, salves, powders, inhalers and pet meds. No sharps or biological material. Collections are for Brown County Residents only and offered at no cost to participants.

Waste pharmaceuticals are a far reaching issue. These unused drugs present opportunities for environmental contamination, drug abuse and accidental poisonings.

Budget 2012 Scorecard Now Online Until July 15th

Make sure to “Tell Us What You Think” from July 1-15, 2011 the Village of Bellevue will seek advice on programs and services for the 2012 budget.

Funding for programs and services are largely based on available property tax revenue and service fees. Your voice is especially important this year since economic conditions and cuts in state shared revenues have made it difficult to fund existing services. Therefore, fewer dollars may be available to support existing services and programs. You can help make these spending decisions by telling us what kind of service level you want in our core services. You will be able to choose one of four levels of service for each category.

Service Level 1 = Total elimination of service and reduction in property taxes.
Service Level 2 = Partial reduction of service and slight reduction in property taxes.
Service Level 3 = Slight increase in property taxes, no change in service levels.
Service Level 4 = Increase in property taxes, enhanced service levels.

You’ll be able to choose the option that describes the service level you believe the village should provide.

To start the Budget Scorecard, go to the following link: http://www.villageofbellevue.org/budget2012.

(IMPORTANT: The Budget Advice Scorecard will be used as one tool in developing the budget. The Village Board will be looking at a variety of factors in budget decisions, and we want to provide interested individuals an opportunity to provide some input through the Budget Advice Scorecard. Your selections will not be reflected in your official tax bill, this is only a survey of residents’ preferences.)

Is Your Bicycle Licensed?

All bikes in the Village of Bellevue with inflated wheels greater than 16 inches in diameter are required to be licensed. In order to issue a license, we need to know the serial number, make, model, speed, wheel size and color.

There is a $5.00 non-expiring fee for the license. The license is good for as long as you own the bike. Should you sell or give the bike to another person, you should inform them that they must register the bike in the community in which it will be kept. Always remember to wear a bike helmet; it prevents head injury and may save your life!

Know The Drill Before You Grill

Did you know that more than one-quarter (29%) of home structure fires involving grills start on a courtyard, terrace or patio; 28% started on an exterior balcony or open porch; 7% began in the kitchen; and 5% started on an exterior wall surface.

To help keep people safe, the Village Bellevue ordinance 5.34 regulates cooking devices. Here are the important points from the ordinance:
  • All charcoal and propane cooking devices must be 15 feet from any structure
  • Multi family structures with three or more separate occupancies the use of charcoal or gas grilles is prohibited within 15 feet of the structure or above-the-ground floor such as on a balcony or deck.
  • Smoke from your cooking grill shall not create a nuisance for neighboring property owners.
  • Do not use charcoal or gas grills or deep fryers indoors or inside any structure such as garage, shed or tent.
  • Clean your grill, grease and other gunk can catch fire inside the grill if you let it build up.
  • Always keep a close eye on your grill when cooking. Just because its outside doesn’t mean it’s safe.
Charcoal grills can stay hot enough to start a fire for hours after you are done cooking on them. Many garage fires have been started by grills that are hastily put in a garage.

Let’s all do our part to keep this grilling season a safe one. Remember, your grill should be on an impervious surface and not on a deck. It should be located well away from vegetation and not used locate up against the house. It is against state law to have an open flame (gas or charcoal) grill on a second floor deck, patio etc.

Village Board To Discuss 2012 Fiscal Year Budget

2012 is several months away, however the Village Board of Trustees will begin discussion on next fiscal year's budget. Much of the initial discussion will be centered on proposed cuts in state shared revenue and the impact on revenues from the loss.

Based on what is currently proposed, the Village stands to lose approximately $226,371 in state aids to the village's general fund. In addition to cuts in revenue, the Village will also face increased costs in fuel, debt proceeds and public safety in 2012.

In the event the budget repair bill is enacted, savings from retirement and health insurance contributions will not equal the proposed cuts in state aid.

The scheduled work session will likely be the first of many work sessions; as the Village Board will need to determine how to balance the budget with service reductions or revenue enhancements.

The first work session meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17th 6:30pm at the Public Safety Building / Village Hall (3100 Eaton Road). The meeting agenda can be found at the Village's website: http://www.villageofbellevue.org.
