January 11, 2016 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
JANUARY 11, 2016
7:00 PM
The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Chairman Robert Giese. 
Present were Chairman Giese, Supervisors LeRoy Schmitz and Dave
Schmitz, Clerk Patti Supple, Treasurer Brenda Post, Attorney Matt
Parmentier and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as
presented.
Public Comments:
Cathie Seffern asked for an update on the old Northwest Supply
building on the Harry Schmitz property next to the airport. 
Initially, the Town was awarded compensation for the lack of proper
permits to construct a foundation for the building.  Mr. Schmitz was
told he needed to get a proper site and drainage plan before he could
put the building on the site.  The Town was then contacted by the
County to have the building removed are renovated.  The Town turned
the matter over to the County under the County nuisance ordinance. 
The County did not pursue the matter except to have the building
wrapped.   Supervisor L. Schmitz noted that Mr. Artie Aigner wants his
truck back that the building rests upon.  This is a matter between Mr.
Aigner and Mr. Schmitz.
Code Enforcement:
The Dufrane access off River Road was discussed.  When Hwy 151 was
diverted, access to the site was established on CTH D.  Recently,
Dufrane has been using the River Road driveway.  This access is
causing concerns due to encroachment on the neighbor’s property and
road edge deterioration.  The trucks must cross over into the opposite
lane in order to turn into the driveway.  The neighbor, Ms. Huntley
has sent letter to Dufrane asking them to stay off her property.   She
should contact the Sheriff’s Department if the trespass continues.  
Unfortunately, no Planning minutes have been located relating to the
use of the driveway.  Gremmer Engineering has established that the
turn radius into the driveway violates the Town ordinance.  Dufrane
will need to request a driveway permit and possible Planning Meeting
to address the turn radius and road width issues.
On December 18, 2015 a letter was sent to Lyle Schaetzel concerning
the culvert sweeps.  Since the permit was issued in May, and the
culvert ordinance was not in place at that time, the Town Attorney is
recommending not pursuing the matter.  However, the installation of
the culvert is causing drainage issues, and the culvert may need to be
strapped down.  Supervisor LeRoy Schmitz feels the drainage issue
should be addressed.  The unused sweeps should either be attached or
removed as they are one cause of the drainage concerns.  The
recommendation was made to have Gremmer check out the drainage
issues.
There was no update on the Van Horn road construction.
Residents from Westfield Hideaway were present to address concerns
over the deteriorating road conditions with the subdivision and who is
responsible for the construction of the roads.  Attorney Parmentier
noted that a Resolution was recorded notifying potential buyers that
the upgrade of the roads could fall on the residents within the
subdivision.  The original developer is defunct.   The development
agreement sets forth the requirements for road construction, and since
these requirements were not met, the Town has not taken over ownership
of the roads.  The question arose from Ryan Sommers over the
$175,000.00 surety bond that was supposed to be in place.  At this
time, there is no information on this bond.   This will be checked as
well as the viability of the new owners finishing the roads.  This
matter will be on the February agenda.
There is no update on the water system study.
The Stormwater topic is “Snow Removal”.
Due to financing updates for the Westwind commercial development,
questions about the occupancy permits and zoning documents have come
to the Permit Office.  Zoning Inc. out of Oklahoma has asked for
information on the approvals for the Westwind shops.  Some of the
matters might need to be approved either by the Town Board or by the
Board of Appeals.  The matter will be addressed by the Town Attorney.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the rental agreement with Phil
Kramer for the  Simon Park agricultural land.  Motion carried.
Due to requirements from the County Planning, a land separation
instead of a CSM is needed for the commercial deveiopment on Streblow
Lane next to the Community Church.  After review by the Planning
Committee, the recommendation to the Town Board is to approve the
preliminary plat contingent on a development agreement written by the
Town’s Attorney along with a reimbursement agreement.  Motion was made
and seconded to approve the preliminary plat with the above mentioned
contingents.  Motion carried.
The Sweet Wisdom Final Plat was presented.  The recommendation to the
Town Board by the Planning Committee was to approve the Final Plat
contingent on a development agreement, covenants and a letter of
credit.  In addition, the Sweet Wisdom Condominium agreement would be
voided.  The lot numbers mentioned in the covenants need to be changed
to agree with the lot numbers on the plat.  The driveway for lots 2
and 3 would be shared off the cul-de-sac and the permit would be
issued by the Town.  No special requirements are needed for the
driveway.  All driveways would have a proper turnaround for emergency
vehicles.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the final plat,
development agreement and contingencies recommended by the Planning
Commission.  Motion carried.
After review of the Guelig waste removal bid for W5194 Bechaud Beach
Drive, it was determined to accept the $2400.00 bid without the skid
steer.  The Sheriff’s Department will oversee the removal of waste on
the property.  It was recommended to add that Guelig would have to
repair any damages to the property.  Motion was made and seconded to
accept the bid from Guelig Waste Removal as stated above.  Motion
carried.  The outside property will be cleared.  Inside the house the
Sheriff’s Department will check on the occupancy of the property since
there is an injunction in place stating the house cannot be occupied
until the proper plumbing is installed.  There is also a money
judgment in place.  Attorney Parmentier will coordinate the work with
Guelig and the Sheriff’s Department.  
No meetings were attended.
The Board of Appeals approved a sign for Flyway signs.  The Planning
Committee will be meeting on the camping issue, the comprehensive
plan, and Manske Business Park.
There was no correspondence to report.
