September 14, 2009 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
SEPTEMBER 14, 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, Attorney Matt Parmentier, 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.

There were no public comments.

The agenda did not follow in order as presented.

Clerk Supple read the minutes from the Planning Committee concerning
the Fond du Lac County Aeronautical Park.  Sam Tobias, County
Planning, presented an updated copy of the Park.  He noted that the
County would address the recommendations made by the Planning
Committee and Gremmer & Associates.  Plans are underway to begin
construction of the roads into the Park and to finalize the site and
drainage next spring.  He noted that sewer and water connections are
onsite, but completed only to Wausau/Everest.  The Town Fire
Department has requested using the former Eilert home site for
training.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to approve
the Final Plat contingent on the need for grading/drainage plans for
individual lots as construction begins, digital files being provided,
the County providing a construction schedule, and the possible future
need for wider turn lanes on the corner of Esterbrook Road and Forest
Avenue Road.  Motion carried.

Mr. Kurtev from Schmitty’s Bar & Grill was present to address the
issues of lighting and incorrect access to Garden Drive.  To correct
the lighting issue, the recommendation was made to put the lights on a
dimmer or timer that would turn them off at 1:30 am.  Mr. Kurtev noted
that the lights and plans were all approved by Shoreland zoning and
that a light meter was used to read the lighting in the neighbor’s
back yard, and no light was registered.  The Garden Drive access issue
will need to be corrected until final work is done on Winnebago Drive.
 Temporary correction can be done using pilons with chains, curbing,
etc.  Mr. Kurtev agreed to check into the issues and have final plans
for the October meeting.

Jeff Wolford presented Contract Revision #9 for Kaempfer & Associates
to provide engineering services for water system improvements
amounting to an added $3500.00.  Chairman Manske and Attorney St.
Peter have reviewed the service updates.  Motion was made and seconded
to approve Contract Revision #9.  Motion carried.

Change order CO-1600901-01 concerning installing a culvert for the
Brown Road elevated storage tank site and ditching by Town & Country
Construction at a cost of  $2307.00 was reviewed.  Motion was made and
seconded to approve the change order.  Motion carried.

Jeff Wolford presented Status Report # 17.  Construction is
continuing.  

The owner approval letter for the Fond du Lac County Industrial Park
water main extension was presented.  After review, motion was made and
seconded to approve the letter.  Motion carried.

The invoice of $150,116.65 from the Village of North Fond du Lac for
the water tower expenses was reviewed.  Motion was made and seconded
to approve payment of the bill.  Motion carried.

Several questions arose concerning the actual ownership of the water
tower and lines.  It was noted the Town has signed agreements with the
Village of NFdL that the Town is leasing to purchase the Tower.  All
water lines in the Town are owned by the Town-except those designated
as privately owned sites.  The increase in utility charges for the
booster pumps is due to extensive flushing of lines for the new
system.

Arby’s presented plans for an added lighted motion sign for their
site.  The Planning Committee reviewed the plans, and they meet Town
standards.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the sign.  Motion
carried.

No price was submitted by Denny Rahn for the moving of the hydrants
from the Mashuda ponds to the Stillwater Estates site.  Therefore, it
was decided to wait until the October meeting for action on the
Mashuda CD.

There has been no correspondence from Mr. Mathweg on the agreement for
the Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 agreement.

On September 23, 2009 the Court will be reviewing the Clary/Mathweg
fence issue.  The Town maintains that since the fence was
reconstructed prior to a fence viewing, the Town has no jurisdiction
in the dispute and that it is a dispute between neighbors.  Attorney
St. Peter and Chairman Manske will be in attendance at the Court
Hearing.

Fire Chief Craig Sanborn reported that the Fire Department applied for
a grant for new radios.  The grant was received and will cover 75% of
the cost of the radios.  (The radios include mobil radios for the
trucks and 17 portable radios.)

Since Attorney Jeremy VanderLoop has not submitted the plans for Harry
Schmitz, Attorney St. Peter recommended that the Town petition the
Judge for release of funds set aside for the Town.  The recommendation
was also made to petition the County to pursue legal action for
clean-up of the property in question.

On October 6, 2009 at 3:30 pm the Towns of Friendship, Taycheedah and
Fond du Lac will meet on Stormwater Management.   The pamphlet for the
month is Fall Fertilizing.
Supervisor Schmitz attended the Town’s Association meeting.  He noted
the main topic of discussion was the Merc Marine issue.

Application for TRIP money must be done soon.

Discussion ensued concerning widening Esterbrook Road by shouldering
this year then blacktopping next year.   It must also be determined
which roads to apply for TRIP money.

There are no meetings planned for Board of Appeals or Planning
Commission.  No annexations, CSM’s or licenses.

Sanitary District #3 will meet at 4:30 pm on September 15, 2009.

Clerk Supple reported that Dotnet will be hooking up high speed
internet for the Town Computer.  Another group of fire number signs
has been ordered.  Elections are scheduled for November for the
Oakfield School District, and for February for Circuit Court Judge. 
Residents of the Town in the Oakfield School District will probably be
voting either in the Town of Byron or in Oakfield.
