October 12, 2015 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING 
OCTOBER 12, 2015
7:00 PM

The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Chairman Robert Giese. 
Present were Chairman Giese, Supevisors LeRoy Schmitz and Dave
Schmitz, Clerk Patti Supple, Treasurer Brenda Post, Attorney John St.
Peter and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as
presented.
Mary Gorske expressed concerns over closed sessions and secret
meetings being held and that gossip outside of meetings is opening up
the Town to potential lawsuits.
The Hietpas Group representatives were present to report on the
official Town Audit report.  In the opinion letter, they reported a
clean record with no discrepancies noted.  This report covers the
General Funds, Debt service funds and water utility.  They did not
higher expenses in road repairs, park, and town hall budgets.  The
other expenses were fairly even with the prior year.  Both the debt
service account and water utility generated enough revenue to cover
costs.  Attorney St. Peter noted that the Board Audit done in April
and the official audit report have differing formats and uses.  The
official audit helps with money borrowing.  Motion was made and
seconded to accept and file the Official Audit Report.  Motion
carried.
Jim Supple, permits noted that the uncapped well casing on property
owned by Daryl Conger has been capped by Badger Well.  Jim Kastorff of
the DNR contacted Mr. Conger after the Town received no response from
Mr. Conger.  Mr. Supple will confirm the well has been capped.
Pat Mand was present to request help from the Town for Helen Swartz of
N5940 Ellis Street.  Ms. Swartz wants to stay in the Town however her
septic system is failing and needs to be replaced.  She has letters
from the Town dated in 1996 telling her she did not have to annex to
the City of Fond du Lac and is welcome to stay in the Town.  Attorney
St. Peter asked if the City has been contacted.  According to Mr.
Mand, the City has no records on the matter.  Attorney St. Peter
stated that the letters were probably sent prior to negotiations that
instituted the Intergovernmental Agreement.  Attorney St. Peter will
contact the City for their opinion and he should have an answer before
the next meeting.  If the City will not allow repair on hookup without
annexation, Ms. Swartz will have to make a decision on how to move
forward.  This matter will be on the agenda for November.
Bills from the County Highway Department for the Emery Lane
reconstruction will be forwarded to Attorney St. Peter after
verification from the County that all invoices have been submitted. 
Scott Roltgen will be contacted by Attorney St. Peter verifying the
residents on Emery Lane are satisfied with the construction.  Bills
will then be sent to the residents for with the 10 year payment option
or immediate payment.  
There is no update on the water system study.  
Since there is no ordinance regulating the driveway aprons or culvert
endwalls, the decision was made to institute an ordinance with
restrictions on construction of both.  (Prior to this time, the rules
were stated on the permit.)  After review, motion was made and
seconded to approve the new driveway and culvert ordinance
regulations.  Motion carried.  Since this is now part of the
ordinances, a deed restriction is no longer needed.  For the concrete
right-of-way construction, owners must get permission at a Town Board
meeting.
The topic for Stormwater Management is “Hazardous Waste”.
The compensation for the roadman position was discussed.  Motion was
made by Chairman Giese to increase Ronald Schmidt’s wage by $.35 per
hour and to give him the yearly Thanksgiving and Christmas bonus and
his $1000.00 retirement bonus.  The motion died for lack of second. 
Motion was made by Supervisor L. Schmitz and seconded by Supervisor D.
Schmitz to increase the wage by $.25 per hour including the afore
mentioned bonuses.  Motion carried with two aye and one nay.
There is no update on the Van Horn frontage road.  The County Highway
Department has forwarded their opinion on the road location to Van
Horn.  Attorney St. Peter will contact Van Horn for a progress report
and update Mr. Moodie.
Due to recent requests for water utility locates, it was determined
that the Water Utility District needs to join Digger’s Hotline. 
Motion was made and seconded to approve joining Digger’s Hotline. 
Motion carried.  In addition a contractor must be hired to do the
actual locates.  Motion was made and seconded to have Clerk Supple
negotiate with Vannguard and Excel Underground for the best price. 
Motion carried.
Supervisor L. Schmitz will be attending the October 15th EMS meeting. 
Upcoming meetings for the Board include the October 14 budget workshop
and the Clerk and election officials will be attending the November
4th class to learn about the new voting machines.
The Board of Appeals has a meeting for the variance for N5930 CTH V. 
The Planning Commission will be meeting to reconvene the meeting
concerning camping.
Supervisor L. Schmitz reported an overage on the DPW building of
$14,000.00 due to having to dig deeper to get to the clay base. 
Construction will continue on October 23rd.
There has been a complaint about a local farmer burying dead cows on
his property.  The recommendation was made to contact County Code
Enforcement.
FINANCIAL REPORT:  September 2015
General Account received:  $330,580.64
                              Orders:        127,732.90
                              Balance:     268,732.90
	CD:  $60,000.00
Road, Bridge, Culvert & Eq:  $347,864.30
Park:  $23,756.30
	Town Hall CD:  $26,250.25
 	Fire Dept. CD:  $5512.22
Motion was made and seconded to approve the Financial Report.  Motion
carried.
PAYMENT OF BILLS:
Bills:  $74,272.04   Wages:  $13,073.78
Motion was made and seconded to approve the Payment of Bills.  Motion
carried.
There will be no closed session due to no closed session updates
required.  In the matter of the Robert Welling property on Bechaud
Beach, Mr. Welling was served papers on October 6th and will be in
default if he does not comply with the regulations stipulated.  The
matter will then go the court.
Cathy Seffern asked for information on the John Zeleske lawsuit
results.  Attorney St. Peter reported that while the Court accepted
some arguments, concerning movable structures, the Court finally
determined Mr. Zeleske could have them.  While Mr. Zeleske stated he
would forgo compensation amounting to @ $750.00 in return for
returning his property to Agricultural zoning, the Town Board
determined it would not be in the best interest of the Town to grant
this request.  Therefore, a letter was sent to Mr. Zeleske denying the
rezone.  While the Town Board is unhappy with the Judge’s decision,
the Board must move forward.  Since the lawsuit is concluded, the
decision is public domain and a copy will be available at the next
Monthly Meeting.
Motion was made and seconded to adjourn.  Motion carried.
Submitted by Patti Supple, Town Clerk
