January 12, 2009 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
JANUARY 12, 2009
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, who arrived about 7:05 and various Town residents. 
Confirmation was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the
previous meeting were approved as presented.  

Burt Diedrich asked for the names of the Board Members and their
positions.

Since Tim Mathweg needed to return to work, it was requested that the
Esterbrook Estates matter be moved forward on the agenda.  Attorney
St. Peter noted that two matters that need to be addressed are the
calculation of the net assessment and the acceptance of the sanitary
line installation.  
1.	Construction of Phase 1 is in compliance with the drawings and
specifications.
2.	All stockpiles have been leveled and graded.
3.	Gremmer Engineering has completed their inspection, and Engineer
Eric Otte has submitted a check list of corrections made in the
original Esterbrook Estates subdivision.  The Town submitted a check
to Mr. Mathweg for its share of the ditching contracted by Mr.
Mathweg.
4.	Engineer Otte has certified that the sanitary lines have been
constructed according to specifications.
Conditional approval for the project was given in October of 2007. 
Approval was contingent on fixing open cuts on Rogersville Road,
reditching west side of Alexander Lane, and payment of sewer fees. 
Mr. Mathweg disagrees with the Town’s interpretation of when fees need
to be paid.  At Mr. Mathweg’s request, this matter will be discussed
when his attorney is present.  If all parties can be present, the
matter can be addressed at the January 15, 2009, 5:00 pm SD  #3
meeting.  Mr. Mathweg would also like a letter stating the roads in
Esterbrook Estates have been accepted by the Town.

Jeff Wolford from Kaempfer & Associates presented an update on the
water utility.  On January 20, 2009 the County Board will meet to
address their contribution to the added cost to the Town for the
change in site for the water tower.  It was also recommended that a
meeting be held with Dave Wagner, Chris Kaempfer, Attorney St. Peter,
the  Town Board and Chuck Horning to discuss options for the water
tower fees and to update the North Fond du Lac water agreement.  
•	The fire protection fee will be reviewed at the January workshop
meeting.
•	Restoration for the Industrial Park Transmission project will be
done this spring as weather permits.  
•	A change order, CO-1600802-03 has been submitted for the
distribution system.  It concerns the culvert replacement criteria. 
After review, motion was made and seconded to approve the change
order.  Motion carried.  The question arose as to why the district was
paying for these replacement culverts.  It was determined that since
the district is “disturbing” the culvert they replace. 
•	The directional drilling under the river went well, until the pipe
broke.  The manufacturer has been notified.
•	Pay request PR-1600802-03 was submitted for work done through
October 18, 2008.  Five percent was retained.  Motion was made and
seconded to approve the pay request contingent on Town & Country
submitting payroll certification and lien waivers.  Motion carried.
•	The application for Chapter 30 permit for wetland disturbance has
been submitted.  Work will be done this spring upon proper approval.
Todd Chadwick asked why the district used the directional drilling
instead of boring and jacking.  Both are approved methods, and
directional drilling was chosen.  Mr. Chadwick also expressed concern
that the tower site was not approved before the project was started. 
It was noted that several sites were chosen, but the decision was made
to begin construction with the hope that the least expensive and best
placed site would be approved. It was also noted that the project is
being done in 3 phases, and only phases 1 and 2 have been finalized.
Attorney St. Peter recommended that Chris Kaempfer attend the February
meeting to answer questions.  

Mr. Diedrich asked why the Town paid the Attorney to be present at the
meetings when it is the responsibility of the Board members to be
informed.  It was noted that some matters require legal input, and
that Attorney St. Peter does not charge for attendance at the Monthly
Meeting.  Mr. Diedrich also had questions on the raise in taxes. It
was noted that the raise included the Town wide water utility tax, and
the SD #3 mil tax to pay for the City sewer treatment plant upgrade.

There were no meetings attended, annexations, CSM’s, or license
approvals.

The Board of Appeals has no meetings planned, but the Planning
Commission will be meeting to address a development on County K.

Sanitary District #3 will meet on January 15, 2009 at 5:00 pm.

It was noted the Hawes Court road sign needs to be installed, WTA dues
are due, and Chairman Manske reported on the article concerning a Town
resident jumping onto the roadman’s truck.

carried.

Submitted by Patti Supple, Town Clerk
