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 John St.
Peter and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  There were two errors in the July minutes, replace
Guelig for Gyr in the Welling report and a spelling error of Code on
page 2.  With these corrections, motion was made to accept the minutes
as changed. 
PUBLIC COMMENTS:
Mary Leasa wanted to discuss the violations she has reported on the
Dufrane property.  Attorney St. Peter indicated this matter would be
addressed in agenda item #9.
Tim Murphy stated that the residents were supposed to be kept updated
on the website updates monthly, and this has not been done.  He also
stated the zoning map is not available and the ordinances are
impossible to read as presented on the website.  He added the
calendar, minutes and other aspects of the site are not kept updated. 
In relation to the Garrison rezone request he stated that the State
considers this spot zoning and should only be allowed if it is in the
best interest of the municipality and not just for the benefit of the
property owner.  He also asked why the weeds along Willowlawn Road
have not been cut.  Chairman Giese reported the mower is out, but
there have been several breakdowns with equipment and there have been
a shortage of help due to illness and vacations.  In addition, Mr.
Murphy asked about the Dufrane rezone request and who asked for the
rezone.
Ryan from the Hietpas Group presented the 2015 Audit report.  He
stated there were no issues found, and it carried an unqualified
opinion.  Copies of the Audit were available for inspection at the
meeting.  Attorney St. Peter asked if there were any new accounting
standards expected in the next several years of which the Townships
should be aware.  At this time, no new standards are expected.
The Garrison rezone was discussed. Clerk Supple reported that Mr.
Garrison did not show up for the Planning  Commission meeting and the
Commission had tabled the rezone for more information.  Several
residents in the area of the Highway 175 property,  have questions
that couldn’ t be answered.  Clerk Supple asked for clarification
about the notices needed if the Planning Committee would need to redo
the Public Hearing.  Attorney St. Peter stated the Public Hearing
would not need to be redone.  Attorney St. Peter recommended getting
written confirmation from the City on recommendations for the
property.  Motion was made and seconded to return the rezone request
to the Planning Commission.
Motion was made and seconded to approve the refinance/refund for the
2008 Water Project per Dave Wagner’s recommendations.  Motion carried.
 The refinance could save the Town $20,000.00 per year over the life
of the loan.

time line.
