April 14, 2008 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
APRIL 14, 2008
7:00 PM

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 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.

Mike Hatch, candidate for 53rd Assembly District, introduced himself
and gave a brief summary of his qualifications.  He added that he
backs the right to farm bill, is pro-life, anti-abortion and pro-gun. 


Eric Kurtev, from Schmitty’s Bar & Grill, reported that he is
interested in opening the former Jim’s Bar and turning Schmitty’s into
more of a restaurant setting.  He wanted to confirm that a license is
available for the bar and what would be needed to get Town Board
approval for the opening of the bar.  Chairman Manske expressed
concern over the parking situation for both businesses.  Attorney St.
Peter recommended that Mr. Kurtev have preliminary plans for the bar
drawn up for review as well as parking accommodations for both
businesses-before and after the update of Winnebago Drive.  

Fire Chief Craig Sanborn asked for the name of the new County Board
representative for the Town.  It is Karen Madigan from the Ripon area.
 He added that he felt it was important for her to attend the Town
meetings to get familiar with the Town’s concerns.

A letter was sent to the owners of Ben’s Budget Cab Service concerning
the increased amount of traffic to their residence on Esterbrook Road.
 In response to this letter, owner Cindy Bailey contacted Attorney St.
Peter and reported that the business is operated out of an office on
Forest Avenue.  There were continued reports of cab traffic into the
residence and a second letter recommended that the owners appear at
the April Monthly Meeting to answer Town Board concerns.  Ms. Bailey
reported that the business is run out of the Forest Ave. office, but
due to a recent burglary the drivers have been dropping off their
money at the Esterbrook address.  Attorney St. Peter explained that
while the Board is sorry for their loss, the business can’t be run out
of the Esterbrook address and that by dropping of money at the home,
they are running a business out of that home.  They will have to make
other arrangements for drop off that don’t include the Esterbrook
address.

The intergovernmental agreement between the City and Town Fire
Departments has not been completed.  Fire Chief Sanborn will be
meeting with the City on April 16, 2008 to review the agreement.  The
topic will remain on the agenda for the May Meeting.

Attorney St. Peter recommended that the Town take a formal position on
the DOT proposals for the Highway 151 bypass concerning the
intersections of County V, Martin Road and Highway 45 with the bypass.
 After discussion, motion was made and seconded to make a resolution
recommending that option B-1 would be the least disruptive to the Town
of Fond du Lac and Sanitary District #2 existing and future
residential growth and most consistent with the Town’s master plan. 
Motion carried.  It was also noted that the connection road proposed
from Hickory Road to County V south of the bypass could cause serious
disruption of Town plans, as well as causing the destruction of a
historical cemetery. 

It was determined that a workshop meeting will be required to the
Kaempfer & Associates contract for the water system improvements. 
Also the proposal presented at the March Public Hearing,
subcontracting work and the new impact fee ordinance will need to be
reviewed.  It was recommended to meet either on the 21st or 28th of
April to review the above items with Chris Kaempfer.  The North Fond
du Lac Water Service agreement has not been completed as yet.

ECRP has all the information it needs to make a decision on the County
Industrial Park next to the Airport.  On May 14th Sam Tobias and Al
Buechel will be meeting with Attorney St. Peter and Chairman Manske to
review plans.  It was recommended that the Town wait to amend the
sewer service area boundaries until ECRP has set the boundaries.

The Town Board met with the Fondy Sports Complex owners concerning the
development agreement, but all came to an impasse.  The Complex owners
have decided to go back to their original proposal of an
ATV/motorcycle/snowmobile track.  They noted that the Planning
Commission initially approved their plan but the Board was concerned
about noise issues.  Complex owners feel they have addressed the noise
issues and have agreed to provide berms and plantings to buffer the
noise.  Attorney St. Peter recommended starting with one type of
vehicle to see whether noise will be an issue.  Chairman Manske added
that a firm development agreement will be needed so that the Town can
enforce any noise disturbances.  Steve Strong stated he thought that
an agreement had been written and approved by both parties that would
allow the expansion of the go-kart track.  Attorney St. Peter reported
that the agreement was never approved by both parties.  He added that
the Town will include in any agreement the ability to enforce noise
issues, compliance with random sound tests, and a way to monitor
complaints.  Residents expressed concerns that the noise issue would
be as difficult to monitor and enforce as the present issues with the
trucking company reefer noise.  Attorney St. Peter stated that the
Town feels that a phased approach is best with credibility of noise
control proven with one vehicle at a time.    Supervisor Giese
recommended that before approval is given, a number of ATV’s be run on
the site to determine noise levels.  After much discussion the
recommendation was made to turn the project over to the Planning
Commission for review of the development agreement and site plans with
special emphasis on noise control such as limit engines to 4-stroke,
limit numbers of vehicles running at one time, hours of operation,
berms and tree buffers.

It was reported that the Roadman found about 14 bags of trash in the
ditch on Esterbrook Road. It was determined that the owner of the
trash will need to reimburse the Town for 5 ½ hours of labor at $50.00
per hour for trash cleanup.  The Clerk will send a letter to the owner
reporting the amount due and time frame to pay.

No meetings for the Board of Appeals.  The Planning Commission approve
the Concept Plan for the County Industrial Park noting that traffic
and roads will be a concern.  Future meetings will be for the
Preliminary plan for the County Industrial Park and the plans for the
Fondy Sports Complex.

There were no annexations, road project updates, CSMs, or licenses.

Sanitary District #4 is concerned about the alternatives to the
Highway 151 bypass that intersect a lift station.  Sanitary District
#3 will be televising more lines this year and repairing manholes.
