June 9, 2008 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
JUNE 9, 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.

Town Permit Issuer Jim Supple reported that Jim Feiereisen had
contacted him about the water situation in the Signature Homes
subdivision.  It was reported that Signature Homes had sent a letter
to property owners concerning the situation.  The Town Engineer has
been contacted to determine what needs to be done to rectify the
problem.  

CPA Gib Hietpas presented the Audit Report.  He noted that the cover
letter states that he found no irregularities in his audit of the Town
accounts.  Section 1 is the Government wide financial statement. 
Section 2 is the general purpose financial statements and balance
sheets.  It shows the general operations and debt service with totals.
 He added that a major upcoming event is the payment to the City for
the upgrade of the waste water system.  He reported that in addition
to the Town payment, each sanitary district will also be paying a
share.  Attorney St. Peter reported that 18 entities will be paying
the City.  Payments will be generated either by a tax or increased
sewer bill.   The Town will be paid back through sanitary district
expansion.  Attorney St. Peter stated that one option for the Town is
to convert this payment to a loan so that it can be used as a debt
which will then not affect our tax levy.  Jerry Keenan asked what
unreserved and undesignated monies were.  Mr. Hietpas reported that
reserved monies for receipt were monies due from the sanitary
districts.  Unreserved designated monies were monies set aside for a
specific use, and unreserved undesignated monies are monies used for
general operation of the Town.  He added that the Town sets aside
money because Towns get the majority of their operating money only
twice a year.  They must budget this money to pay monthly bills.  He
also stated that it is a good idea to have some reserve money for
unexpected expenses so that the Town is not constantly borrowing
money.  Mr. Keenan asked whether the undesignated money is more than
just the Town tax.  Mr. Hietpas reported that the money also includes
the City’s designated share of shared revenue and also the GO debt
service money.  Chairman Manske stated that any further questions can
be forwarded to Mr. Hietpas for clarification.

Clerk Supple read the recommendation from the Planning Commission
concerning the Fondy Sports Complex construction of an ATV track.  The
Planning Commission recommended approval of the preliminary plans
contingent on the recommendations from the Town engineer and a
finalized Development Agreement. It was also reported that the
organized race events should not be allowed.   Mike Maly asked the
Board to allow them to run ATV’s until August to determine if the
noise levels create problems.  After discussion, the Board determined
that this would not be in the best interest of the Town since the
plans and development agreement have not been finalized.  Attorney St.
Peter reported that the Sports Complex Attorney had forwarded some
changes to him for the Development Agreement and that he also had some
additions to the agreement.  These additions/changes will be reviewed
by the Planning Commission.  After discussion, motion was made and
seconded to approve the Preliminary Plans contingent on the Town’s
Engineer recommendations being met, a finalized Development Agreement
and no organized race events.  Motion carried with 2 aye and Giese
no.

The Plans for the Fond du Lac County Airport Industrial Park were
reviewed.  The Clerk read the recommendations from the Planning
Commission.  The Planning Commission recommended approval of the
Preliminary Plat contingent on the Gremmer recommendations being met,
and finalized Development Agreement and Covenants.  John Eilert, owner
of part of the property included in the industrial park noted that he
still owns the property and has not had an offer to purchase as yet. 
He was also concerned that the County was not negotiating in good
faith.  Attorney St. Peter recommended that Mr. Eilert’s attorney
contact the County.  Chairman Manske added that he would like to see
an offer made to Mr. Eilert before approving the Preliminary Plat. 
Attorney St. Peter stated that the plat can be approved contingent on
the purchase of the Eilert property.  Supervisor Giese asked about the
legalities of eminent domain in this case.  The County would be able
to use eminent domain to obtain the property.  It was also noted that
Highway 23 and Esterbrook Road intersection would need to be upgraded
as well as Esterbrook and Forest Avenue Road.  Forest Avenue Road
itself might need improvement.  Motion was made and seconded to
approve the Preliminary Plat contingent on the acquisition of the
Eilert property, the Gremmer recommendations being met, and finalized
Development Agreement and Covenants.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to appoint Jeff Reader to complete the
term of the late Tom Francis on the Planning Commission. (Oct. 2009) 
Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to reappoint Mike Guilfoile to the
Planning Commission for 3 years.  (Aug. 2011)  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to reappoint Tony Koenigs, Cathy Seffern
and Joe Schumacher to the Board of Appeals for 3 years.  (August
2011).  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to reappoint Mike Turner to Sanitary
District #4 for 6 years.  (Feb. 2014)  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to authorize the following change to the
Intergovernmental Agreement for emergency services in the Highway 41
corridor.  The change will be that the City will handle medical calls,
and the Town will handle fire calls.  Motion carried.

After discussion, motion was made and seconded to amend the
jurisdictional transfer agreement #225 regarding the Highway 175S to
transfer and added 600 feet to the State jurisdiction.  Motion
carried.

The status report on the water utility is that the FAA has concerns
over the height of the water tower.  It is in the instrument approach
to the runway during bad weather.  The situation is still in
negotiation.  Engineer Tom Lanser has requested more direction on the
impact ordinance fee schedule.  It is important that a fair and
equitable fee be set up.

A meeting is scheduled for mid-July on the Highway 151 bypass
situation.  

Chairman Manske will be attending an Airport meeting in late June.

Supervisor Schmitz reported he attended the Town’s association
meeting.  He noted that there were many political representatives that
attended looking for Town support.

The Planning Committee will be meeting to review changes to the 35
acre minimum in AG and AT zoning and utility buildings in residential
zoning.  A swimming pool ordinance will also be reviewed.

No annexations.

There was much erosion noted on road shoulders.  A workshop will be
needed to address the changes to Garden Drive and the Highway.  Fire
