November 3, 2008 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
NOVEMBER 3, 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.

Jeannette Weber expressed concern that a resident on Takodah Drive was
being forced to remove from his driveway newly installed concrete in
the Town right-of-way.  She noted that the gentleman was in his
mid-eighties and should not have to remove the concrete as it would be
cost prohibitive.  She also noted that several other residences in the
subdivision also had concrete in the right-of-way.  Chairman Manske
explained that the Town’s Code of Ordinances prohibit concrete in the
right-of-way and that the gentleman in question had been informed that
he should not install concrete in the right-of-way.  One other
resident in the subdivision who recently installed concrete will also
be removing the concrete.  The remainder of the driveways were
installed prior to the codification of the ordinances and are
“grandfathered” in.  Chairman Manske went on to explain that the
Ordinances must be adhered to by everyone, for orderly growth in the
Town.

Ron Colward noted that when the sanitary lines and water lines are
installed and driveways are dug up, the concrete is replaced with
blacktop.  Chairman Manske noted that even the Town’s contractors must
comply with the ordinance. Mr. Colward also asked for the cost of the
water line.  It is the cost of the line to the house plus a $475.00
hook up fee.

The modifications to the engineering report of special assessments for
the Industrial Park transmission lines were reviewed.  The area wide
assessment is based on current zoning and part of the Industrial Park
is still zoned AT.  The special assessments were approved at the
October 28, 2008 meeting.

The Industrial Park transmission lines are installed, and the lines
have been pressure tested.  Services can be hooked up once a safe
water test is done.  Inspection bills should be paid by the
contractor.  It was requested that Kaempfer separate the bills for
easier payment by the Town and the Contractor.

Status Report # 6 on the Water system was presented by Jeff Wolford. 
The easement for the Fond du Lac County Airport has been registered by
the Register of Deeds.  There are 27 days to complete the project
through the Airport property.  The payment to Town & Country needs to
be approved.  Water services for the Industrial Park should be
completed by November 4, 2008.  The installment notices were published
on October 30, 2008 and copies sent to property owners.

Larger maps were needed of the water utility district.  The map and
the legal description must be recorded prior to January 1, 2009 in
order to be on the tax roll for 2009.  The FAA sent a letter stating
that the Fond du Lac Airport grant would not be withdrawn if the tower
is approved by the Atlanta office.  If the original site is not
approved, the County has indicated they will help with the added cost
of moving the tower site.  Chairman Manske expressed concern over the
North Fond du Lac referendum which would limit funding projects over
one million dollars without Village residents approval by referendum. 
Attorney St. Peter stated that the Village would be able to purchase
the property for the tower and lease it to the Town.  

The Newton Road project has been submitted to the DNR for approval.  A
change order will be submitted once the project is approved.  The DNR
has been notified of the river crossing.  Town & Country needs
approval to proceed with the river crossing and to proceed to
Rogersville Road with the transmission lines.  The special assessment
final costs are on hold until the tower site is verified.  Motion was
made and seconded to approve the change order for the two crossings by
the Industrial Park for gravel backfill.  Motion carried.

It was decided to hold off determining the special assessments until
all the information has been confirmed so that only one public hearing
will be needed.

Jeff Wolford will send out mailings to residents in the next project
area so that the various choices for hookup or deferments can be
reviewed.

Attorney St. Peter noted that the Court of Appeals has upheld the
forfeitures owed the Town by Harry Schmitz.  Judgment was for
$41,784.28 plus interest still accruing at 12%.  In the matter of the
public nuisance, it was determined that it is in the best interest of
the Town to set aside this matter at this time.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the Issuance of a GO
Promissory note to the City of Fond du Lac for the Town costs of the
improvements to the Sanitary System.  Motion carried. This debt will
not be counted against the Town for levy limits.

The water facilities needs assessment and impact fee ordinance is near
completion.  The Park fee and Stormwater fee needs to be added.

The Mathweg/Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 special assessments were
reviewed.  Motion was made and seconded to require the assessment to
be placed on the lots and the Town receive payment as each lot is
sold.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to approve a 35mph speed limit on Hawes
Court and Rogersville Road dead end, and that signs be installed
indicating the limits.  Motion carried.

The Inspectors payment schedules were reviewed.  After discussion,
motion was made and seconded to approve a $55.00 per call fee for the
Electrical Inspector and the Plumbing Inspector and $40.00 per hour
payment to the Building Inspector effective on January 1, 2009. 
Motion carried.

It was decided that the cost of retrieving the delinquent personal
property tax for Tri-County Land Surveying would be more than the
amount owed.  Therefore the Town will forgive the tax.

No meetings are planned for either the Planning Committee or the Board
of Appeals.

No annexations or CSM’s.

The next Sanitary District #3 Meeting is scheduled for December 1,
2008 at 4:30 pm.

The Town’s Association Xmas Party is scheduled for December 4, 2008.

There has still been no update on the well water situation in the
Winnebago Drive area.
