October 13, 2014 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
OCTOBER 13, 2014
7:00 PM
The Monthly meeting was called to order by Chairman Robert Giese. 
Present were Chairman Giese, Supervisor LeRoy Schmitz, Clerk Patti
Supple, Treasurer Jody Roffers, Attorney John St. Peter and various
Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open meeting notice. 
Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as presented.
John and Becky Lami from the Minute Marts, LLC requested the hours for
selling alcohol packaged goods be changed to the State of Wisconsin
legal limits.  Presently the Town of FDL limits sales to the hours of
8:00 am to 9:00 pm.  Surrounding Townships have longer sale hours. 
This is causing the loss of business to the surrounding Townships. 
The State of Wisconsin allows beer sales from 6:00 am to midnight and
liquor sales from 6 am to 9 pm.  Since their mini mart has had no
problems with the sale of alcohol, they are requesting the Town extend
the hours so they can better compete with neighboring Townships.  It
was recommended this matter be added to the November agenda for
action.  Since the Hwy 151 station is presently in violation of
present sale hours, the owner will be notified he must comply with
present limitations.
Dan Gurath asked what is being constructed on the old Dartmoor Motel
property.  It will be a Hampton Inn.
Clerk Supple presented the code enforcement report.  In the Zeleske
shed case, the property was toured by Chairman Giese, Attorney Matt
Parmentier and Permit Issuer Jim Supple.  In the Bob Welling case, the
Court has found in favor of the County Code Enforcement, and the
sanitary facilities must be upgraded to meet required standards.  
The chlorination building is completed, and final certification has
been received.  The water study is not completed, and @ $1500.00 is
due upon completion.  The levy for 2014 payable in 2015 will stay the
same as 2013.
Ponce Torres was present to express concern over his neighbor filling
in a natural drainage area which in turn is flooding his property.  He
stated that in the past there was seasonal ponding, but recently the
water stays for months.  Attorney St. Peter expressed concern that
this is a private neighbor issue and not a Town issue.  He asked
several questions of Mr. Torres:  was the neighbor approached to
remove the alleged fill, no; Is this a natural waterway, unknown; was
a complaint sent to the County, no; was the DNR or Conservation Dept.
contacted, no.  Mr. Torres asked the Town to send a letter to his
neighbor and the DNR.  Attorney St. Peter reiterated that he does not
see an obvious role for the Town in this matter.  He cannot justify
spending Town monies on a private dispute.  Chairman Giese noted he
had looked at the property from the road, and could not find any sign
of fill being hauled onto the property.   The Town will not pursue
this issue at this time.
Two residents at W6764 and W6770 Osage Court have requested permission
to put culverts in their backyards and cover with fill to provide
better drainage and a more useable yard.  After discussion, motion was
made and seconded to approve the installation of the culverts
contingent on the residents signing and registering an agreement for
the upkeep and maintenance of the drainage and culverts.  Motion
carried.
No update on Westfield Hideaway.
A meeting  will be held on October 20, 2014 at 10:00 am concerning the
Van Horn property frontage road.  
The revised quote from the County was sent to the residents on Emery
Lane.  Scott Roltgen reported they are still waiting for the last
resident to approve the construction.
Work on Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 is moving along.  Gremmer is
checking the construction. 
 A workshop will be held on the topic of winter sidewalk and parking
lot maintenance.  The stormwater MS-4 permit is being updated.  The
pamphlet topic is “Keep pollutants out of rivers and lakes”.
After discussion, motion was made and seconded to approve the safety
covers for swimming pools as an alternative to fencing in the swimming
pool.  State standards for covers and Planning Commission
recommendations for a lock box are required.  Motion carried.
In a closed session October 6, 2014, the Town Board discussed the
Fondy Sports Complex proposal.  Attorney St. Peter presented the
Town’s agreement to the Board and the Sports Complex owners. 
Highlighted in the agreement is the acceptance of 50% of the past
fees, a signed re-imbursement/development agreement and a
non-annexation clause.  Fondy Investments stated they would like a cap
on the re-imbursement fees.  A response is needed prior to the
November 10, 2014 meeting.
The revised Farmland Preservation Certification was sent to the State.
 Certification from the State should be received soon.
Joe Goldberger, Chris Slater and Tom Wood were present from Premier
Streblow Lane Estates Phase II.  Still needed are the signed
re-imbursement agreement and the Phase II development agreement. 
Needed from Fondy Investments is the renewal of the Letter of Credit. 
Motion was made and seconded to invoke the letter of credit if the
expiration date is not updated.  Motion carried.  Premier Streblow
Lane Estates Phase I development agreement needs to be amended due to
the lack of construction dates being met.  The metering station must
be tied to both phases.  The Town is concerned about non-completion of
the present project and the next phase.  Attorney Goldberger stated
Phase II construction dates will be provided when permits are pulled. 
This will be added to resolution as #7.  Motion was made and seconded
to approve the Phase II pre-development agreement.  Motion carried. 
Motion was made and seconded to approve the Premier Streblow Lane
Estates Phase II Development agreement contingent on the Resolution
from Attorney St. Peter being signed.  Motion carried.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the contract with Bowmar
Appraisals, Inc. as the new assessor for the Town.  Motion carried. 
Joel Ryan will complete the present year.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the increase of wages for
Ronald Schmidt by $.25 per hour, a bonus of $1000.00 and Thanksgiving
and Christmas gift cards of $100.00 each.  Motion carried.
Motion was made and seconded to appoint Phyllis Giese as a poll
worker.  Motion carried.
Due to damages to the Simon Park Shelter, the rental fees and
agreement were reviewed.  (tarps were nailed to the shelter beams.) 
While the people who did the damage have agreed to fill in the holes
and re-stain the beams, if this would happen again and the renters
were not cooperative, the present fees would not cover repairs.  After
discussion, motion was made and seconded to limit rental of the
shelter to Town residents, have a $25.00 rental fee and $50.00 deposit
fee.  The contract would state the renters are responsible for all
damages and repairs.  Motion carried.  The recommendation was made to
put up hooks for hanging tarps to eliminate nails.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the 10 acre CSM for James and
Patti Supple on Martin Road. Motion carried.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the CSM for Michael and
Michelle Weber combining lots 55 and 56 in Westfield Hideaway into one
lot.  Motion carried.
Supervisor Schmitz reported the Highway committee has reviewed the
State of Wisconsin recommendation for hauling requirements on roads,
especially farm vehicles.
The Board of Appeals has no meetings planned.  The Planning Committee
will meet to review the Aigner CSM and special use permit request.  
Clerk Supple reported that the next election is scheduled for November
4, 2014.  No photo ID is required.
Chairman Giese reported  a culvert replacement will cost the Town @
$4800.00.  Work is need on the box for the old International truck. 
Supervisor Schmitz complained about the cutting of weeds in the
