January 9, 2017 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
JANUARY 9, 2017
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 John St.
Peter, Representatives from Ehlers and Associates and various Town
residents.  Confirmation was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes
from the previous meeting were approved as presented.
Due to adverse weather conditions, the Board moved agenda item #4
forward.
#4  The Resolution authorizing the sale of $2,650,000.00 GO Funding
Bonds, Series 2017 A pursuant to Wis. Stats 67.04 for public purpose
of advance refunding obligations of the Town was presented.  Attorney
St. Peter updated the residents on the reason for the refunding. 
Since there is a good interest rate climate, Ehlers and Associates is
recommending a national bid on the bonds to save the Town upwards of
$200,000.00.  John Cameron, from Ehlers and Associates reported there
were 6 bidders for the refunding.  This is an above average number of
bids.  Low bidder, whom Ehlers is recommending, is Bankers Bank.  The
projected savings for the refunding is up $40,000.00 from the original
estimated savings.  Projected savings is $307,269.00 through 2028. 
The actual debt will be $2,650,000.00.  Motion was made by Giese and
seconded by L. Schmitz to accept the bid from Bankers Bank.  Motion
carried.
PUBLIC COMMMENTS:
Mary Leasa responded to the letter read by Chairman Giese at the
December meeting concerning the Dufrane issues:   She is concerned
about the property being zoned commercial and the recently excavated
strip of residential property that was recently excavated, the
enforcement of a development agreement or deed restriction that would
require the replacement of dead and dying trees, the enforcement of
the Town ordinances, allowing the Dufrane building to be grandfathered
in for use, Manowske should be considered heavy industrial not light
industrial, historical pictures show the graveled area of the parking
lot showing a 20 foot setback, since nothing else is resolved, the
noise has become and issue and the trailers should be moved off the
residential property.  She added she was insulted by the comment that
Mr. Dreifuerst had the garbage collection moved from her day off so
the noise wouldn’t disturb her.  She continued that the Town Board is
making her group look like a lynch mob and that if it wasn’t for her
standing in front of the roller to stop the paving of the parking lot
the lot would have been paved without permits.  She was also concerned
that no residents had been contacted by Board members for their input.
 She added that there are simple solutions to the problems and are all
common sense.
Tim Murphy stated that the Board’s reluctance to enforce the noise
ordinance and pay for a noise study is unreasonable.  He read portions
of the Ordinance he felt were pertinent to their concerns.  He added
that he feels the Town Board is getting special compensation from Mr.
Dreifuerst to keep from enforcing the ordinance.
Supervisor L. Schmitz thanked the residents for the phone calls,
letters and cards sent during his recent stay in the hospital.  He
said all were greatly appreciated.
Tony Koenigs noted there was a grant of 1.2 million dollars to the
school district for training.  He wondered if some could be used to
inform the younger generation of Town government.
#5  Rogersville Road reopening committee update.  Harry Lange is out
of Town and Supervisor L. Schmitz has not been able to check on the
progress.
#6 CODE ENFORCEMENT:
a.	 Fox Court and Fox Drive vision clearance.  No update as yet, but
the Gremmer report should be completed this week.
b.	The garage has been restored to its original condition, but there
has been a complaint about debris in the yard at W5047 Mariearl Drive.
 A letter was sent on December 9, with a 30 day removal date, but due
to weather conditions, an extension was recommended.  This will
continue to be on the agenda.
c.	Due to the new baseball diamonds to be constructed by Marian
College, residents along Mariearl and Meadowbrook Creek Road are
asking for parking restrictions on Town roads in this area.  Attorney
St. Peter will check into the wording needed on the signs.
#7  PUBLIC WORKS:
a.	 Fondy Investments is looking for a bond reduction for Streblow
Lane to cover only the berming and ditching.  This is on hold for
now.
b.	No action tonight on the Van Horn project.  They will be asking for
a rezone of some property.  The Board would like the rough-in and
grading of the road done this spring.
c.	No update on the water system study.
d.	Stormwater topic is the Mission Statement.
A letter was drafted by the Law Offices asking the State DOT to
consider a speed reduction along Highway 23.
#8  Motion was made and seconded to approve an operator’s license for
Rob Slaymacher Johnson for the Nut House.  Motion carried.
#9 Chairman Giese will be meeting with Eric Otte on some Sanitary
District questions.
