August 13, 2007 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
PUBLIC HEARING
AUGUST 13, 2007
7:00 PM


The Public Hearing was called to order by Chairman Harold Manske.  He
explained that several businesses had requested that lighted motion
signs be added to approved signs in the Town’s ordinances.  The
Planning Commission reviewed several types of signs and recommended
that the Town Board approve the scroll, travel and dissolve/fade type
of lighted signs as a special exception through review of the Planning
Commission and final approval by the Town Board.  There being no
discussion, motion was made and seconded to adjourn to the Monthly
Meeting.  Motion carried.


MONTHLY MEETING

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

County Supervisor Mike Gannon noted that the Pioneer Road design has
been let for bids.  He added that the work is scheduled for 2009 with
both the road and the bridge being done at the same time.  Members of
the Town Fire Department requested information on road closings, and
noted that access to the Town Hall would be needed for fire and first
responder calls.

Jerry Keenan asked if the Town had turned down a permit for Mr.
Nehring on Ellis Street which then forced him into annexing to the
City.  Due to the agreement with the City in this area, anytime the
septic system fails the home owner must annex to the City and hook up
to City sewer and water.  The Town did not turn down a permit.

Clerk Supple read the descriptions of the lighted signs recommended by
the Planning Commission.  The signs recommended included the scroll; a
mode of message transition where the message appears to move
vertically across the display surface, travel; a mode of message
transition where the message appears to move horizontally across the
display surface, and dissolve/fade; a mode of message transition
accomplished by varying the light intensity or pattern where the first
message gradually appears to dissipate and lose legibility
simultaneously with the gradual appearance and legibility of the
second message.  She noted that these signs should be special
exceptions through review of the Planning Commission with final
approval of the Town Board.  Chairman Manske noted that several
businesses presented a petition requesting the changes to the sign
ordinance.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to approve
the above mentioned signs as a special exception through review of the
Planning Commission and final approval by the Town Board.  Motion
carried.

MSW Land, LLC presented a letter requesting that the letter of credit
for Stillwater Estates be reduced to $250,000.00.  The letter noted
that completed work includes all stone/gravel in place for roads,
culverts, ponds and most of the landscaping.  Chairman Manske noted
that Gremmer Engineering has approved the road construction up to this
time.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to reduce the
letter of credit to $250,000.00.  Motion carried. 

The disposition of the Harry Schmitz lawsuit was discussed.  The first
option is to waive the daily forfeitures, require the preparation of
plans, remove junk, and pay all attorney fees.  This option could not
be appealed and would be enforced by the court.  The second option
would be to require payment of daily forfeitures, preparation of
plans, remove junk and pay attorney fees.  This option could be
appealed up to one year.  Supervisor Schmitz recommended that the
daily forfeitures be required.  Chairman Manske noted that this would
mean up to a year that the finalization of the project could be on
hold.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to require the
preparation of plans (engineered site and drainage plans), removal of
junk, a payment of $20,000.00 to cover Town expenses, have the
building assessed for structural compliance, with a 60 day window to
comply.  Failure to comply within the 60 days, the Town retains the
right to assess daily forfeitures.  Motion carried.

The agreement with HNTB for the noise study for the trucking
businesses and Fondy Sports complex was reviewed.  Possible cost for
both studies could be $6000.00.  It was noted that the Sports Complex
go-kart study should involve the number of vehicles that will be
allowed on the track as well as the various types of motors that will
be allowed.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to approve
the agreement with HNTB.  Motion carried.  Supervisor Schmitz noted
that he had concerns over the dust situation on the back property and
noted that a better dust control system should be added.  Fondy Sports
representatives also noted that they are willing to install berms and
plant trees to alleviate residents concerns over noise.  Harry Lange
noted that new subdivisions in this area should have a note in the
covenants that there is commercial zoning nearby.

Chairman Manske noted that he received the plans for the Winnebago
Drive reconstruction.  In the plans, Schmitty’s Bar loses its access
onto Winnebago Drive.  This creates a problem for residents on Garden
Drive, because the only possible access for Schmitty’s is Garden
Drive.  Until a resolution can be found that addresses all concerns,
motion was made and seconded to table the reconstruction of Garden
Drive until a viable solution can be found.  Motion carried with
Supervisor Giese abstaining.

No update on the water tower project.

Esterbrook Estates Addition 1, the sewer lines have been installed.

Samson Builders have requested a letter from the Town Board stating
that all appeals concerning the construction of their building have
been exhausted.  Chairman Manske noted that Samson Builders need to
request an inspection from the Building Inspector, and once the
building has physically been inspected they can address any concerns
that are raised.  Motion was made and seconded to table action on the
requests from Samson Builders until a physical inspection of the
construction site is done by Charlie Martin, the Town Building
Inspector and his recommendations can be reviewed.  Motion carried.

The proposed chain link fence with colored slats proposed to enclose
the McArthur shed was reviewed.  After discussion, motion was made and
seconded to reject this type of fencing due to aesthetic reasons and
it not completely blocking the view of the building materials and to
require the construction of a solid six foot tall fence that
completely blocks the view of the materials.  Also all materials must
be reduced in height to not allow viewing above the fence.  Motion
carried.  A letter is to be sent by the Town Attorney addressing this
matter.

The letting of bids for the reconstruction of crossroads on the 151
bypass will be done on Tuesday the 14th of August.  Road closing will
begin in September.

No scheduled meetings for the Planning Commission or Board of
Appeals.

Mr. Nehring on Ellis Street has petitioned for annexation to the
City.

Martin Road will be closed to through traffic beginning August 20,
2007.

No Certified Survey Maps.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the application for operator’s
licenses to Kevin Sloan and Jackie Lichtenwald both to work at Aldi’s.
 Motion carried.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the soda
license for Fondy Sports Complex.  Motion carried.

The next meeting of SD #3 is scheduled for Thursday August 16th at
4:30 pm.

Clerk Supple noted that the population estimate for the Town is 2477. 
The updated web-site is up and running.  So far, the recommendation
for town wide garbage pickup has been well received.  Chairman Manske
reported the prices for salt for 2007-2008 are salt $42.48 per ton and
salt/sand mixture $22.26 per ton.
