May 9, 2016 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING 
MAY 9, 2016
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 Brenda Post, Attorney John St. Peter and various
Town residents.  Supervisor Dave Schmitz was excused.  Confirmation
was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting
were approved as presented.
PUBLIC COMMENTS:
Fire Chief Craig Sanborn noted the minutes from last month indicated
the Fire rating was equal to the City of Fond du Lac, it is equal to
some cities, not particularly Fond du Lac.
Mary Gorske stated she hopes the residents of the Town are being
informed that if a bird builds a nest on their property, a building
permit is needed from the Town.  They also must get a permit for patio
furniture.  She said that due to the new definitions of building and
structure, she hopes the residents are being informed of the need for
permits.
John  Zeleske stated he has two carports on his property and per the
minutes from December of 2015 the Attorney stated this is a problem. 
He asked if this was going to be a problem.  Attorney St. Peter had no
comment.
Tim Murphy asked if he should speak now about the Dufrane matter.  He
was told to make his comments under Public Comments.   He asked if the
Gremmer report was available and if not that it was overdue.  He also
asked about updating the website.  He noted that it would be nice if
the agenda noted if a topic would be discussed.
CODE ENFORCEMENT AND PERMIT
The Gremmer report for the Dufrane driveway issue has been received. 
A meeting will be set with the Planning Commission.
Ellen Coyne asked for an extension to remove junk from the Halfman
property at N7043 Winnebago Drive.  So far 3 flat bed loads have been
hauled off the property. The area will be monitored as progress is
being made.
On April 16 and 23, Guelig Waste Removal hauled junk off the Welling
property at W5194 Bechaud Beach Road.  There are before and after
pictures. There is still much left behind as Mr. Welling put some of
the junk inside his house and shed and hauled it out once Guelig was
gone.  There is also a car that should be removed.  Attorney St. Peter
will check with Guelig since the car needs to be hauled away as does
the logs, building materials and blocks and stones. Guelig indicated
the car would cost extra to haul away. Per the Court order, all debris
needed to be hauled away.  The Deputy on site should not have allowed
Mr. Welling to save some of the junk.  Also, Mr. Welling still seems
to be living in the house without proper sanitary facilities. 
Therefore, Guelig will need to come back and remove the rest of the
junk and the car, and the Court will be notified that Mr. Welling is
under contempt of Court.
Mr. Zagar of N6539 Carrington Drive wants to modify his ditch area. 
Attorney St. Peter indicated he has a sample contract from the
Mariearl ditch modification that can be modified for this project. 
Needed for the contract is the legal description of the project
property.  This is a signed contract that is recorded and runs with
the property.  Records will show the alteration and the required
maintenance.  Since this is in the Town right-of-way, the Town must be
notified of the proposed alteration and must give permission also. 
The cost is born by the resident for both the alteration and
maintenance and the Town will not restore the alteration in case the
Town needs access to utilities within the altered area.  The Town
would give advance notice if at all possible if they need access.  Mr.
Zagar proposes replacing the grassy area with landscape stone plus a 2
foot retaining wall on his property.  The downstream neighbor would
not be affected.  Chairman Giese made the motion to accept the design
plans as submitted with the addition of a signed and recorded
development agreement in place.  All work to be done at Mr. Zagar’s
expense.  Motion seconded by Supervisor L. Schmitz.  Motion carried.
On April 20, the resident at W5816 Ritger Drive was notified of dogs
running at large.  No answer as yet to the letter.
There has been no action on the Van Horn frontage road.  The last the
Board heard, an engineer had been hired to work on the project. 
Supervisor L. Schmitz said he would like more action on the project so
a report can be presented at the June meeting.
No update on the Water System study.  The Village of NFDL is also
upset over the delay.  Motion was made and seconded to have Attorney
St. Peter get in touch with the Village to push for action on the
study.  Motion carried.
Other Townships are adopting a Utility Location Ordinance which
defines the utilities and permits needed to install.  Motion was made
and seconded to approve the Resolution Adopting the Utility Location
Ordinance.  Motion carried.
The Town is still waiting for the signed Manske Business Park
Development Agreement.  The Town has dropped the tax free portion of
the agreement.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the Resolution allowing the
drew on the Fondy Investments letter of credit if the new letter of
credit is not received by June 1, 2016.  Motion carried.
Permits are needed to exceed the road weight limits.  Attorney St.
Peter reported the ordinance says the vehicle owner must provide
security and a road restoration agreement as well as set dates for
hauling.  Permit Issuer Supple will read through the ordinance and
recommend changes or ask for clarification. The ordinance will be
ready for approval at the June or July meeting with the
recommendations from J. Supple, L. Schmitz and D. Schmitz.  Supervisor
Schmitz asked about a problem he has with the road width on Brown Road
and the damage done by the milk hauler turning into his property. 
Attorney St. Peter will research right to farm issues.  Attorney St.
Peter noted the weight limits are statutory on roads without weight
limit signage.
Supervisor L. Schmitz attended the Board of Review certification.  He
also noted the NFDL ambulance was delivered in April.  While there
will be no reduction in fees, there will be no increase either.  An
open house will be held on May 21, 2016 from 1 to 3 pm to view the new
ambulance.
The Board of Review held two meetings.  The first, a request to extent
a garage, was tabled for more information, and the Rick Schneider shed
demolition and reconstruction was approved.
The Planning Committee will meet in June to review the Dufrane
driveway request and the Pit Stop Portables parking lot.
Chairman Giese reported the website is being updated. 
Clerk Supple asked if the Nut House needed special permits for outdoor
entertainment.  The areas for alcohol consumption and sale must be
