July 14, 2014 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
JULY 14, 2014

The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Chairman Robert Giese. 
Present were Chairman Giese, Supervisors LeRoy Schmitz and Phyllis
Giese, Clerk Patti Supple, Treasurer Jody Roffers, Attorney Matt
Parmentier and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were approved with
one change, the month at the introduction should be June.
PUBLIC HEARING
The Public Hearing was called to address the vacation of a portion of
West Grove Street to the County Airport.  Attorney Parmentier reported
that 90 days ago the Town started the process to turn over a portion
of Grove Street to the County Airport.  Harry Lange asked where the
Airport was taking over the road.  Chairman R. Giese reported that the
vacation starts just past the two houses, about 400’ from the Airport
property line.  The road would have a cul-de-sac with a main gate. 
Keys would be provided for airplane hanger owners to access the gate. 

There being no more discussion, motion was made and seconded to
adjourn the Public Hearing.  Motion carried.
MONTHLY MEETING
Motion was made by R. Giese and seconded by Schmitz to approve the
Resolution vacating Grove Street. Motion carried.
Sarah Everson introduced herself as the new County Board Supervisor
for part of the Town of Fond du Lac.
Gib Hietpas of the Hietpas Group introduced his partner John
Hilgendorf and CPA Ryan Gukenberger.  He then presented the Official
Audit Report.  He touched on two major areas, the General operations
and the Water Utility Fund.  The general fund funds the day to day
operations for the Town.  While there appears to be a significant
amount in the fund, this money must take the Town through the whole
year with some additions from the tax account and some State funding. 
The Water Utility Fund is unique to the Town.  The funds in this
account must be used for water utility projects and debt retirement
only.  This fund has a very tight budget.  CPA Hietpas said he gives
the Town an unqualified opinion.  There are no exceptions and no
problems.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the Audit Report. 
Motion carried.
Code Enforcement/Permit Report:  Jim Supple
1.	 The Zeleske shed issue is in litigation.  The scheduling
conference is September 2, 2014.
2.	The Bob Welling property was checked last week with no changes
noticed. The County is in litigation on this property due to unsafe
sanitary facilities.  The hearing is set for August 25, 2014 with a
potential for condemnation-eviction proceedings and or jail time.  It
was recommended the Town send a certified letter to County Code
Enforcement with the Town complaints delineated.  A certified copy of
the letter should be sent to Bob Welling.
3.	The Realtor selling the lots in Westfield Subdivision was notified
that the weeds need to be cut.  The issue will be forwarded to
property owners.  As a side note, Chairman Giese noted the ditches
will be cut by the Town ASAP.  At issue is the need either to replace
the present mower, hire a company to do the work or let the issue rest
for another year.
4.	The Grove Street ditch with debris and trees issue needs to be
addressed either by filling in the ditch or cleaning out the debris. 
Approval from the City and possibly shoreland zoning might be needed
before filling in the ditch.
5.	At W6322 Grove Street, the field of weeds needs to be addressed.  A
second letter was sent to Streblow to clip the field.  No answer has
been received.
6.	Ron Kraus has replaced the culvert sweeps.  Angela Seyfert has
clipped the weeds on Rockwood Court.  Ken Herr has removed the dirt he
used to fill in his ditch.
No one was present for the Poch swimming pool cover/fence issue.  The
matter will be tabled until next month with letters being sent to Poch
and his neighbors.
No update on the Blue Heron access issue.
The Chlorination Building has been completed and both Chairman Giese
and Supervisor Schmitz toured the completed building.  Chairman Giese
will check with the Village of North Fond du Lac on the “exercising”
of the valves.
The Emery Lane road issue was discussed.  Scott Roltgen, speaking for
the property owners, is asking for $15,000.00 to help with the road
repair costs.  Motion was made by R. Giese to offer $7500.00, interest
waived, finance over 7 to 10 years and the charge to be by property
owner.  Motion failed, no second.  Motion by Schmitz, seconded by P.
Giese to charge the same interest paid by the Town, charge by owner,
$5000.00 to defray costs and financing over 7 to 10 years.  Motion
carried 2 aye 1 nay.  This matter will be on the agenda for August for
property owners input.
No update on the Fondy Sports Aqua Park.
Additional swings and fencing is needed for Simon Park.  Motion was
made and seconded to approve the purchase of fencing along the front
of the gazebo and installation of a new swing set.  Motion carried. 
In addition, the evergreens will be separated this fall.  The memorial
marker has been updated and a cupola and weather vane will be
installed in memory of Harold Manske and Alex Simon.
In order to meet the new Stormwater requirements, motion was made and
seconded to hire AECOM to update the mapping and other requirements at
a cost of $4500.00.  Motion carried.
Chairman Giese reported the County garage might be located in the Town
of Fond du Lac.  A one time permit for $1000.00 will be paid for the
Emergency Management water chlorination.
Board of Appeals met on two garage exceptions, one was approved, one
was not.  There are no Planning Commission meetings scheduled. 
 Supervisor P. Giese reported she will be resigning as of the August
11 meeting.  She thanked the Town residents for their support over the
years and added she will miss being a member of the Board.  Chairman
R. Giese will have a state of the Town update for upcoming meetings. 
He is asking residents when they call about an issue to have some
options for a solution to the problem.  Clerk Supple reported on a
request from Kathy Meier to discuss the weed issues in the Town as
well as dog nuisance issues.
