March 10, 2008 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC 
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
PUBLIC HEARING
MARCH 10, 2008
7:00 PM

The Public Hearing was called to order by Chairman Harold Manske.  The
meeting was called by the Town Board to review the discontinuance of
Garden Drive.  Chairman Manske reported that the residents of Garden
Drive had requested the Drive be made into a cul-de-sac and that part
of Garden Drive become a dead end with entrance to Schmitty’s Bar &
Grill.  A legal description was written and will be recorded, legal
notices sent, DOT contacted, and the final step is a public hearing. 
Attorney St. Peter noted that the discontinuance of a portion of
Garden Drive is in the best interest of the residents in that area and
can be done at the discretion of the Town Board.  Kathy Sharp noted
that she is in favor of the move, but was concerned about the timing
of the construction.  The recommendation was made to time the
reconstruction with the reconstruction of Winnebago Drive to help
defray construction costs.  Harry Lange expressed concern that Garden
Drive was not sufficiently wide especially in the area of the proposed
cul-de-sac.  It was stated that the area would be reshaped to provide
proper access.  It was also noted that if the construction is delayed
an immediate concern is drainage in the area of the late Tom Francis’
property.  

There being no more discussion, motion was made and seconded to
adjourn to the Monthly Meeting.  Motion carried.

MONTHLY MEETING

The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Chairman Harold Manske. 
Present were Chairman Manske, Supervisors Phyllis Giese and LeRoy
Schmitz, Clerk Patti Supple, Treasurer Mel Buechel, Assistant
Treasurer Jody Roffers, Attorney John St. Peter, and various Town
residents.  Confirmation was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes
from the previous meeting were approved as presented.  

Bob Thompson requested that minutes be updated more regularly on the
web-site.

Tim Murphy thanked the Board for implementing Town wide garbage
pickup.  He asked when the new fire signs would be installed on the
west side of Town.  It was reported that the west side would be done
this summer.  He then asked about the time frame for a town wide
reassessment.  Chairman Manske noted that he is waiting for final word
from the Town assessor Joel Ryan on the need for a reassessment. 
Chairman Manske stated that he is hoping the State will be readjusting
assessed valuations due to declining land values and that they will be
more in line with equalized values.  This would delay the need for a
reassessment.  Mr. Murphy then asked what would happen to the mil tax
rate.  The mil tax would hopefully be the same.  However, with the
State mandates for revenue limits, the future mil tax is unknown.  Mr.
Murphy also asked for an update on the well agreement with the City. 
Attorney St. Peter reported that the City is willing to renegotiate
with the Towns on the agreement, and a new agreement will be in place
in the near future.

The Garden Drive discontinuance was reviewed.  Chairman Manske
reported that it was in the best interest for the safety and welfare
of the residents on Garden Drive and patrons of Schmitty’s to go ahead
with the reconfiguration of Garden Drive.  Supervisor Schmitz agreed. 
Supervisor Giese, a resident of Garden Drive abstained from comment. 
After discussion motion was made by Manske and seconded by Schmitz to
start vacation of Garden Drive as soon as construction is completed on
Winnebago and Garden Drive by the DOT and completion of reconstruction
of the cul-de-sac is done by the Town.  2 aye/Giese abstain

The intergovernmental agreement between the City and Town concerning
the providing of emergency services on the Highway 41 corridor was
tabled until further information can be provided.  Fire Chief Sanborn
noted that this agreement is needed in order to protect the safety of
Town and City emergency personnel.  

Attorney St. Peter reported that he sent a letter to Ben’s Budget Cab
Service and received a call in response to the letter.  Cindy Bailey
called and reported that all the cabs are parked in the Macy Street
ramp and that the business is not run from the Esterbrook Road
address.  However various residents in the area reported that there is
still much activity and possibly cab repair work being done at the
site.  It was recommended that Ms. Bailey be notified to attend the
April meeting to answer the concerns or court action might be taken.

It was recommended that a pre-design contract be approved to allow
Kaempfer & Associates to do a more detailed study of the potential
water utility site.  It was noted that a public hearing is scheduled
for March 25 at 7:00 pm at the Goodrich Little Theater, a letter will
be sent to all Town residents concerning the public hearing and that a
legal notice and informational article be submitted to the Reporter
for publication.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the
pre-design contract with Kaempfer & Associates.  Motion carried.  The
impact fee ordinance and the amendment to the North Fond du Lac water
agreement was tabled.

The Stormwater management report was discussed.  The Town is working
with the Town’s of Taycheedah and Friendship to help defray cost of
the report and monitoring of the requirements.  

Attorney St. Peter reported he has contacted ECRP to request an
extension to the sewer utility district to include the proposed
industrial park on Forest Avenue Road.  A response was received
outlining the criteria for implementing the request.

Fondy Sports Complex will be meeting with Attorney St. Peter and
Chairman Manske on the development agreement concerning the expansion
of the go-kart track.

Supervisor Schmitz reported that he has been appointed to a Town’s
Association committee to review the contamination of land in the
County.  Reports will be presented to County Executive Al Buechel.

There are no Planning Commission or Board of Appeals meetings planned.
 There are no annexations.

Other than plowing roads, no road construction is being done. 
Chairman Manske noted that the hard winter has caused lots of holes to
appear in local roads.  He has discussed with County Highway
Commissioner Tom Janke upcoming road projects:  Esterbrook Road from
Brown to Highway 151, striping of roads and a cap on River Road. 
Wildwood Lane and Garden Drive are presently on hold.  The TRIP funds
will help cover blacktopping costs.

No Certified Survey Maps.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the operator’s license
applications for Mandy Sabel and Ashley Sobotta from AJ’s Bar & Grill.
Motion carried.

Sanitary District #2 will meet on March 13 at 4:30 pm.
