December 8, 2008 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING 
DECEMBER 8, 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, Jeff Wolford of Kaempfer & Associates and various Town
residents.  Confirmation was made of open meeting notice. Minutes from
the previous meeting were approved as presented.

Tim Murphy asked for an update of the fire number sign installation. 
Most of the signs are ordered for the west side, but due to snow the
installation has slowed down.  He requested that the web-site be
updated.  He also asked for an update on the Harry Schmitz lawsuit. 
Attorney St. Peter noted that the lawsuit entailed Mr. Schmitz moving
a building on to his property without obtaining proper permits for
reconstruction of the building.  He also was cited with a public
nuisance for junk on the property.  The circuit court found in favor
of the Town, as did the Court of Appeals.  Due to a Town lien on his
property, money received by Mr. Schmitz for the sale of some property
has been put in escrow until final appeal to the Supreme Court is
finalized.  Attorney St. Peter has to submit paperwork to the Supreme
Court concerning Mr. Schmitz’s allegations that over $42,000.00 for a
“building permit” is excessive.  Interest continues to accrue on the
judgment.  If the Supreme Court finds in favor of the Town, Mr.
Schmitz must meet the Town’s recommendations, or the Judge will order
removal at Mr. Schmitz’s expense.

Chuck Cleary asked whether a site has been found for the water tower. 
An alternate site on Brown Road has been approved.

The former Mobile Home Stuff site is being purchased by Weld Supply
Corp.  After review by the Planning Committee, recommendation was made
by the committee to approve the extension of the overhang per plans,
and to approve the occupancy permit for Weld Supply Corp.  The
Planning Committee did recommend that the well site be approved by the
DNR since it is in the building, and also noted that the three sided
shed within the easement for the gas company could be a concern to the
buyers.  It was also noted that a meeting has been requested with the
Board of Appeals concerning the oversize sign.  After discussion,
motion was made and seconded to approve the extension of the overhang
and the change in occupancy of the building to Weld Supply Corp. based
pm the retail business plans submitted, contingent on approve building
plans and the purchase of the property.  Motion carried.

An updated map on the FDL County Industrial Park Main was submitted by
Jeff Wolford.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to
approve change order CO-1600801-02 concerning the water service
connection, culvert replacement criteria and time extension at a cost
of $1255.40.  Motion carried.  After discussion, motion was made and
seconded to approve payment order PR-1600801-01 for 4207,991.37 for
the Industrial Park Transmission Main.  Motion carried.  After
discussion, motion was made and seconded to approve payment order
PR-1600801-02 for work done in November.  Motion carried.

Status Report #7 was submitted.  A change order requesting a time
extension was made due to unforeseen snowfall.  Pay requests 1 and 2
were approved.  The water main to the Industrial Park is in service. 
The special assessment for outlot #1 in the Industrial Park was
corrected.  Four residents have hooked up to water, with 2 paying in
full, and 2 requesting a loan.  

The change order for the distribution system CO-1600802-02 was
presented, this includes the Newton Road water main extension. The DNR
approved the extension.  Cost to be $47,578.72 and includes 9 water
services.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the change order as
presented.  Motion carried.  Change order CO-1600802-03 to include
water service connections at a cost of $4750.00 was presented. This
includes the specific property owner, and should be included in the
special assessment for each property hooked up.  An inspector will be
going to each homeowner to explain the added cost. Motion was made and
seconded to approve the change order with the addition of the
assessment to the property owner.  Motion carried.   

Payment request PR-1600802-01 for October work on the distribution
system was presented.  After review, motion was made and seconded to
approve the payment of $17,744.87.  Motion carried.  Payment request
PR-1600802-02 for November work on the distribution system was
presented.  After review, motion was made and seconded to approve
payment of $134,217.99.  Motion carried.

It was recommended that driveway replacement due to construction meet
the Town ordinance standards.  One driveway in question will cost more
to repair due to configuration of the driveway.  Extra blacktop will
increase the cost, which will need to come out of the contingency
fund.

The Board gave approval to proceed with work on Rogersville to Brown
Road and Brown Road to Tower site contingent on approval from the
County Board to allocate money for the extra cost of the new tower
site.  The final report for special assessments needs to wait for the
County Board allocation of money.  

Status Report #8 was presented.  There is concern over the Village of
North Fond du Lac referendum which requires residents approval for
expenditures over one million dollars.   A map of the utility district
must be presented to the Register of Deeds before 1-1-09.  Kaempfer
will be attending the FdL County board meeting concerning the
allocation of funds.  Wetland determinations must be done on new site
and Air Maps will be doing aerial photography of the area.    A permit
request has been sent to the DNR for approval to go under the river. 
Probably won’t be needed.  Forty-nine letters have been sent to
residents with 37 being returned.  The other 12 residents will be
contacted.  Excess fill is being trucked to Airport property.  The new
tower site might also need fill.  The Park will need three water
services, a one inch pipe to the pavilion and the Simon house, and a
three inch to the future fire station site.  Jeff Wolford recommended
a 6 inch loop with hydrant.

The sanitation lines are constructed in the Wausau-Everest site in the
Industrial Park.  However, there is a dip in the line that will need
to be corrected once the wetland protection permit is approved.  The
water main is also in and minor checks still need to be done.  Water
is flowing, or will be soon.  Problems with the sewer manholes on the
airport property have been corrected.  

Miscellaneous water utility items that need to be discussed include
the present fire protection charges from the Village of North Fond du
Lac and what changes will  need to be made once the water tower is in
use, and a final decision on the water service connections from the
prior water system installation.  Chairman Manske stated that the fire
protection charges will be discussed at a workshop meeting.  All
pertinent information will be needed before the January workshop.  As
for the prior households not connected to the water system, it was
determined that the households were given the same options as the
present homeowners.  Hookup would be required for new construction,
and if the well dried up or needed to be drilled deeper.  There are
two households from the previous water construction that will need to
be notified they are in noncompliance.  The proper siting of hydrants,
ditching requirements, and the need for one inspector per work crew
was also discussed.  

The resolution authorizing purchase of vehicles at auctions will be
reviewed at a workshop.  

After discussion, motion was made and seconded to approve the Impact
Fee Ordinance presented by Attorney St. Peter.  Motion carried.

The Bowmar Appraisal Contract was reviewed.  Motion was made and
seconded to retain Bowmar Appriasal Company to do a walk through
appraisal in 2010.  Motion carried.

No action was taken on the liquor license fees.

After discussion, motion was made and seconded to transfer the
following funds out of the General Account:  $40,000.00 for appraisal
account, $100,000.00 to the Fire Department Equipment Fund,
$100,000.00 to the Road, Bridge, Culvert & Equipment Fund, $50,000.00
to Debt Retirement, and $50,000.00 to the new Town Hall.  Motion
carried.

The caucus was set for January 10, 2009 at 1:00pm.

Fire Chief Sanborn reported on the new equipment truck.  He noted the
present estimate is $315,000.00.  He will be checking with other
companies for estimates as well as other options.

The Board of Appeals will be meeting to review the Weld Supply sign. 
The Planning Commission will be meeting to review the concept plan for
property on County K.

No annexations, certified survey maps or licenses.

Paperwork on the roads in Roberts subdivision, Brookview and Prairie
Estates will be forwarded to the DOT.

Sanitary District #3 will hold a meeting on January 15, 2009 at
