October 12, 2009 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
OCTOBER 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, Chris Kaempfer and various Town residents.  Confirmation was
made of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were
approved as presented.

Fire Chief Craig Sanborn reported that the Fire Department needs to
replace the Equipment Truck due to new mandates.  Cost is estimated at
$285,745.00.  After discussion, it was determined that the Fire Chief
would need, for comparison, to get several estimates on trucks with
the same features.  If the truck is not purchased outright, there is a
lease to own program offered.  At this time, the Town has $150,000.00
set aside for fire department equipment upgrades.

Tom Mieklejohn presented plans for remodeling the Ally’s furniture
building and parking lot expansion.  The plans are to make offices for
an insurance business in the existing building.  While the plans need
to go before the Planning Commission, Mr. Mieklejohn is requesting
that his company be allowed to go ahead with the parking lot expansion
in order to complete the job before the asphalt plant closes.  After
discussion, motion was made and seconded to allow the initial grading
to be done in the yellow area designated on the plans.  This approval
is contingent on the Planning Committees recommendations and is at the
owners risk for possible revisions to the plans or final plans not
being approved.  All work would have to be returned to its original
state if the plans are not presented and approved.  Motion carried.

Chris Kaempfer presented Contract revision #10 for the engineering
services between the Town and Kaempfer & Associates for the water
system improvements.  Added cost would be $1900.00 plus $22,300.00. 
Contract Revison #11 was presented for engineering services between
the Town and Kaempfer & Associates for added services at a cost of
$10,900.00.  After discussion and review, motion was made and seconded
to approve both Contract Revision # 10 and #11.  Motion carried.

Chairman Manske questioned the need for 7 engineers on every project
and the added cost to pay each engineer.  A summary of the budgeted
amount for engineering services and the actual cost was requested from
Chris Kaempfer.  

Contract Revisions #3 and #4 were presented.  They entail work between
the Village and the Town for the water tower.  Added costs are @
$7000.00 and $11,100.00.  Some of the costs entail the need for a
chlorinator on the Town’s lines to maintain the proper chlorine
levels.  Cost of the chlorinator is $60,940.00.  This is considered a
Town expense, since it involves inadequate chlorine levels in the Town
lines.  Motion was made and seconded to approve contract revisions #3
and #4.  Motion carried.

Change Order CO1600802-06 for the installation of the water main at
the northeast corner of the intersection of Brown Road and Esterbrook
Road was presented.  Cost of the change is $9400.00.  Rick Schneider
of Town & Country stated that the actual cost to the Town should be
about $1500.00 and that the additional cost should not be paid by the
Town due to lack of communication and delay in relaying approval for
the change to Town & Country.  If the work could have been done as
soon as the initial change was requested, and the ditches still
opened, the cost would have been less. After discussion, motion was
made and seconded to approve the change order since the work was
already completed.  Motion carried.  The cost of the project will be
reviewed and “chain of command” work orders will be reviewed.

Motion was made and seconded to approve Payment Requests PR1600802-06
for the Distribution System Improvements, PR1600802-07 for the
Distribution System, and PR1600901-02 for the Brown Road Transmission
Line.  Motion carried. 

Status Report #18 was presented.

After review, motion was made and seconded to approve the addition of
Town Sanitary District #6 as an additional party to the 2000 Waste
Water Agreement.  Motion carried.

The compensation for Town employees was reviewed.  Motion was made and
seconded to approve the following changes:
Roadman Ronald Schmidt : additional $.50 per hour, Savings bond of
$1000.00, $50.00 gift cards for Thanksgiving and Xmas.
James Supple: permits, additional $1.00 per hour
Ron Davis:  additional $.25 per hour,
Rob Giese:  additional $.25 per hour, and 
Tim Schrage: no change
Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the Memorandum of
Understanding for the Voter Registration system with the County. 
Motion carried.

The grant for Fire Department radio upgrade will cover all but @
$11,100.00.  Motion was made and seconded to approve payment of the
$11,100.00 for the additional cost.  Motion carried.

Since no one from Schmitty’s was present to update the parking lot and
lighting situation, it was decided that a letter be sent giving the
owners 10 days from the date of the letter to replace the buffer onto
Garden Drive and to dim the lighting.  

After review of the cost of the dry hydrant costs in Stillwater
Estates, motion was made and seconded to return to Mashuda Contractors
the value of the CD and interest minus the cost of the dry hydrant. 
Motion carried.

Mr. Mathweg is disputing the right of the Town to install sewer and
water in the Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 additions.  Therefore,
there is no final agreement to sign.

The Town was dismissed from the Clary/Mathweg fence review.

Judge Nuss has authorized the Town to receive the escrowed monies from
Harry Schmitz.

The topic for Stormwater Management is “Managing Leaves & Trimmings.”


The Planning Committee will be meeting to review the Ally’s Furniture
remodeling plans, and the outdoor burner ordinance.  There are no
plans for a Board of Appeals meeting.

No annexations, CSM’s or licenses.

There is work being done on Brown Road.

Sanitary District # 3 will be meeting on November 23, and Sanitary
District #6 on October 26.

Fond du Lac will increase $5.00.  He also reported that FDLCo. EDC
