January 12, 2015 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
January 12, 2015
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 Matt Parmentier and various
Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open meeting notice. 
Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as presented.
Loretta Koenigs asked for an update on the construction of a new DPW
or Fire Station.  Chairman Giese stated that the cost is too high to
do a new building on the Simon Park property.  At the present time,
the Board is looking at the sizes of the trucks that need to be inside
the buildings and how much it would cost to construct a smaller
building to handle the overflow.  The Chairman hopes to have more
information for the Annual Meeting.  The options could be costly and
it is better to evaluate all the options before moving forward.
Tony Koenigs noted the Fire Department and EMT’s are always looking
for volunteers.
Representatives from Mercury Marine were present to request a
exceeding the weight limit on Willowlawn Road.  They are leasing the
former Wausau Supply building and need to run trucks along Willowlawn
between Larson Drive and Trowbridge.  Otherwise, they would need to
run trucks from Larson to Hickory to W. Rolling Meadows Drive to
Trowbridge.  It would be a limited use not to exceed 5 trucks per day
with a maximum load of 25 Ton.  Hours would be limited to 7:00 am to
5:00 pm.  Supervisor Schmitz noted that Willowlawn is not constructed
for such use, especially the culverts.   Chairman Giese noted the road
might be upgraded in the future depending on TRIP funding, but at this
time, the Town does not have the funds to improve the road.  If the
Town gives permission to Mercury Marine to use the road with heavier
trucks, it must also allow other companies to do the same.  Therefore,
motion was made and seconded to deny allowing Mercury Marine to exceed
the weight limits on Willowlawn Road.  Motion carried.
Jim Supple had no update on the Bob Welling matter on Bechaud Beach
Road.  There were no more code violations to report.
There has been no response from Van Horn or his Attorney concerning
the frontage road off Esterbrook Road.  Due to the potential adverse
situations: the Moodie access to his property and the Ford access
questions, it was decided Attorney Parmentier should contact Van Horn
and his Attorney and let them know the Town will be invoking the
resolution to put in the frontage road at the February meeting.
Attorney Ullenburg for Hometown Bank, owner of Esterbrook Estates
Addition 1, asked the Town to approve the Resolution to approve the
acceptance of Esterbrook Estates Phase 1 contingent on the correction
of the rip rap and curb and gutter.  Since these are the only two
issues with Phase 1 motion was made and seconded to accept the
resolution for Phase 1 contingent on the rip rap and curb and gutter
being corrected per Gremmer inspection.  Motion carried.  The Gremmer
inspection will be at the Town’s cost and the situation must be
corrected within 6 months.
The Water System Study needs to be reviewed and comments sent to
Kaempfer.
Check the tract rack for updates on stormwater activities.
Representatives from Fondy Sports Park were present to discuss the
reimbursement agreement.  Clerk Supple had forwarded them the minutes
from the Planning Committee meetings and Board meetings concerning the
Aqua Park.  Of concern the Fondy Sports was the cap on costs, the need
for a development agreement and no annexation clause.  The no
annexation clause is to protect the Town by establishing boundaries. 
In addition, by staying within the Town, the Town will recoup some
costs through taxation.  The Development Agreement establishes
guidelines for the Aqua Park.  This agreement is not limited to actual
construction.  Once Fondy Sports agrees to the Town’s conditions and
pays the past agreed upon costs,  and sends updated copies of the Aqua
Park plans and Planning Commission fee, the Clerk will set a date for
the Planning Committee meeting.
In the matter of Premier Streblow Estates fire hydrant locations, the
Fire Department has no issues with location.  There is a concern in
the size  of the water main servicing the hydrants.  This is a private
system and services only the apartments.  The main line will service
the rest of the Fondy Investments property.  The Development Agreement
will be reviewed to establish the exercising of the hydrants in the
recommended manner.  As a side note, the Village of North Fond du Lac
will be maintaining the Town’s hydrants.  Kaempfer has recommended
tracer wire for the water lines in Phase II for easier locates, an
addition to sheet G-3 to add Town specs and to get a copy of SPS
approval plan.  As to the plan reviews, it is time to submit bills for
engineering and attorney fees and to establish the permit rates.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the 2015 contract with Fond du
Lac County for snowplowing .   Motion carried.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the following operator’s
licenses:  Melissa Franzen form East Shore Mini Mart and Karl
Dreikosen for Engies.  Motion carried.
No meetings were attended.  
There are no Planning Commission or Board of Appeals meetings
scheduled.
Since Fond du Lac County is joining ECRP, the Town will no longer have
to pay a fee to be a member.
The following candidates were nominated at the Caucus:  Bob Giese,
Chairman: LeRoy Schmitz and John Zeleske, Supervisor 1; Sheila Seefeld
and Dave Schmitz, Supervisor 2;  Patti Supple, Clerk; and Jody
Roffers, Treasurer.

Motion carried.
Submitted by Patti Supple, Clerk
