December 9, 2013 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
DECEMBER 9, 2013
7:00 PM


The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Acting Chairman LeRoy
Schmitz.  Present were Acting Chairman Schmitz, Supervisor Phyllis
Giese, Clerk Patti Supple, Treasurer Jody Roffers, Attorney John St.
Peter and various Town residents.  Acting Chairman LeRoy Schmitz
called for a moment of silence in memory of long time Board Member
Harold Manske.  

Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as presented.

Clerk Supple reported that Chairman Manske passed away at 4:30 am on
December 9, 2013.  His funeral is planned for Thursday, December 12,
2013 at Zacherl Funeral Home.  Visitation is from 3:00 to 5:00 pm with
a service to follow.  Attorney St. Peter noted that he had the
privilege of working with Harold for 37 years and found him to be even
tempered, fair and always putting the best interest of the Town first.
 Supervisor Schmitz and Giese noted he will be greatly missed and was
a calm influence on the Board.

Jim Supple presented his update on Code Enforcement:  
1.	Woodland Park has not completed the repairs to the damaged trailer.
 Attorney St. Peter reported the Park owners are trying to get title
to the trailer in order to begin repairs.  Hopefully there will be an
update for January.  
2.	John Zeleske W6262 Willowlawn Road has 30 days from the November
18, 2013 letter to remove the shed from his property.  Even though Mr.
Zeleske contends that the runners attached to the shed make it a
moveable structure and thus no permits are required, the Town contends
that this is an illegal structure per Town ordinances.  Mr. Zeleske
also approached the Permit Officer and Building Inspector concerning a
shed for chickens and pigs.  Mr. Zeleske stated he will not be
applying for a permit for the chicken shed.  Mr. Zeleske also stated
he did not receive the November 18 letter.  The letter was sent to his
attorney.
3.	The Zimmerman drainage issue was reviewed by Gremmer & Associates. 
The swale was dug 3” too deep.  This is causing the water to pool.  
4.	Due to new legislation concerning cell towers which preempts local
ordinances, the Verizon Cell Tower reconstruction is permitted.  Only
construction permits are needed from the Town.
5.	At N5703 Allan Court, the property owner is illegally plowing snow
into a drainage swale.  A letter will be sent to the property owner
concerning the matter.

In an update on the Water Utility, the flow control-master meter sump
pump was approved for the pit style on November 11, 2013.  The status
report was reviewed.  The Village of North Fond du Lac was contacted
concerning the exercising of the water valves.  Nick Leonard stated
that the water maintenance agreement does not address this issue. 
Since this would be an added cost, a quote will be provided by the
Village.  This matter will be reviewed at the January meeting.  Fire
Chief Sanborn asked if the hydrants are being flushed.  They are being
flushed, but no schedule has been provided as yet.  A schedule will be
requested.

Scott Roffers is requesting the Town relinquish the easement for the
water tank on the James Otis School property.  Attorney St. Peter
reported the two tanks, one 20,000 gallon and one 10,000 gallon, were
installed on the then public property by the County.  Since this is
now private property, Mr. Roffers would like the easement released. 
He is willing to remove or fill in the tanks at his expense.  Since
there is no environmental issue, this should not be a concern.  The
Fire Department would like to remove any viable fittings.  Motion was
made and seconded to approve the Resolution releasing the easement for
the tanks with no financial obligation to the Town for removal or
filling.  Motion carried.

The Final Draft of the Development agreement for Fondy Investments,
LLC was reviewed.  Attorney St. Peter recommended approval of the
agreement contingent on the final provisions being added.  Motion was
made and seconded to conditionally approve the Fondy Investments, LLC
development agreement per Attorney St. Peter recommendations and DOT
approval.  Motion carried.


While Attorney Sager has replied to a letter sent in November
concerning the Fondy Aqua Park, the reply was received to late for
review for this meeting.

The road conditions in Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 were discussed. 
While there will be no road work until spring, the engineering of the
road can be reviewed at this time.  The road is not up to proper
standards and if the rest of the roads follow the present elevations,
will create even more problems.  Andy Klemp of Gremmer & Associates is
recommending a topographic survey of the area.  Cost would be @
$8,000.00 to $10,000.00.  The present owner, Hometown Bank, may
dispute this additional cost.  If the work is not redone, the culverts
will still need to be capped with asphalt and the ditches will be
steep,  This will not cause a safety issue, but will be a maintenance
issue causing added sediment in the pond and more erosion issues. 
Since this seems to be a failure in inspections, who pays for the
errors.  Engineer Klemp noted that inspectors cannot be on site at all
times, and it is the responsibility of the developer to adhere to the
approved plans.  Gremmer will update their 9/28/2013 quote to include
the topographic survey.  Attorney St. Peter will then provide the
quote to Hometown Bank.  

Phil Kramer will be renting the Simon Park Land for 2014 and 2015 at
$120.00 per acre.  Motion was made and seconded to approve land lease
for the aforementioned price.  Motion carried.

In order to receive State road aid, motion was made and seconded to
approve the Resolution taking over the roads in Stillwater Estates and
Fondy Aeronautical Park conditional on the roads being constructed to
Town standards.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to purchase a new plow for the Dodge Ram
pickup.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the legal posting locations
for the Town as the Town Hall on Pioneer Road, Fire Station #2 on
Prairie Road and the Highway 151 Mobil Station on CTH D.  Motion
carried.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the following  poll workers
and chief inspectors:

Cathy Streblow-Chief Inspector
Virginia Knecht-Chief Inspector

Sandra Weninger

applications for Lynn Theur and Zoe Kimpel.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the CSM for Roffers (James
Otis School property).  Motion carried.

The topic for Stormwater Management is Ice and Snow removal.  

A letter concerning the removal of snow on sidewalks on the corner of
Prairie Road and Winnebago Drive will be needed.

Eight Board members attended the Town’s Association December dinner
and meeting.  Supervisor Schmitz attended the Airport Committee
meeting where the closing of Grove Street to the airport runway was
discussed.

There are no Board of Appeals or Planning Meetings scheduled.

Clerk Supple reported the salter for the 1 ton truck is on order.  The
¾ ton truck with the broken plow is still able to be used to plow
snow.   The tax bills are being printed and will be mailed yet this
week.
