November 14, 2016 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC 
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
NOVEMBER 14, 2016
7:00 PM
The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Chairman Robert Giese. 
Present were Chairman Giese, Supervisor Dave Schmitz, Clerk Patti
Supple, Treasurer Brenda Post, Attorney Matt Parmentier and various
Town residents.  Supervisor LeRoy Schmitz was absent due to illness. 
Confirmation was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the
previous meeting were approved with one explanation.  The Highway 23
area being discussed is by Menards.
PUBLIC COMMENTS
Tim Murphy asked why the updating of the web site is not on the
agenda.  Clerk Supple reported she has checked the surrounding
township web sites and finds the Town of Fond du Lac website is
comparable to those.  Other than updating the Comprehensive Plan and
the Town Ordinances on the Town web site, there is little to justify
spending money to make the site more interactive with mapping, etc. 
These amenities can be found on the County website.  Mr. Murphy said
he will make a list of updates that need to be done.
Mr. Murphy also asked that the Town stop dumping so much salt and sand
on the end of River Road during the winter.  He said it just makes a
mess and there is no traffic there to warrant the extra sand or salt.
Tony Koenigs again asked for input on how to get younger people
involved in Town government and the fire department.  He was wondering
if there is funding to help with informational programs.  Chairman
Giese noted there have been young people involved with the Simon Park
upgrades but has no idea how to involve young people in Town
Government.
Attorney Parmentier noted the rezoning of the Dufrane property is
contingent on the deed restriction for the maintenance of the berm.  
Gremmer has prepared aerial maps of the site to determine the area of
the berms and any additional construction that is needed.  It was
recommended a meeting be held on site to look over the berms and then
go back to the Town Hall for comments and questions.  It was also
recommended a control committee be set up to deal with maintenance
issues and enforcement.  Mary Leasa asked about the berm extension
recommended at a prior meeting.  This would be ironed out after the
on-site meeting.  Sheila Seefeld recommended really pinning down the
covenants and the committee for enforcement.  Tim Murphy stated the
trucks should be moved until the rezoning is completed.
Since both Harry Lange and LeRoy Schmitz are absent, there is no
status report from the Ad Hoc committee on the reopening of
Rogersville Road.

B.	Fondy Investments would like the Town to take over the finished
portion of Streblow Drive.  Attorney Parmentier reported the protocol
for this matter is to have an engineer inspect the roads and then move

been inspected by Eric Otte.  Motion was made and seconded to direct
the Town engineer and or Eric Otte to do inspections and to move

for 2017.  Motion carried.
The plans for the Fishy’s Bakery Storage Units were reviewed.  It was
noted the development agreement needs to be updated.  Any approvals
tonight need to be contingent on the finalization of the agreement as
well as the Gremmer recommendations being addressed and County
approval of the stormwater plans.  Attorney Parmentier will follow up
with Fischelson.    Motion was made and seconded to approve the plans
with the above mentioned contingencies.  Motion carried.

advisory meeting.  There was also discussion concerning the lowering
of the speed limit on Highway 23.  D. Schmitz attended the North Fond
du Lac water and ambulance meeting.
