January 11, 2010 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
JANUARY 11, 2010
7:00 PM

The January 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
Matt Parmentier and various Town residents.
Confirmation was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the
previous meeting were approved as presented.

Jerry Keenan asked why his tax bill did not show fair market value. 
The fair market value is not computed on land that is assessed as farm
land.  On the same note, Chairman Manske reported that the State is
considering going to state wide assessing, which would mean that each
Township, City and Village would not do an individual assessment.  At
the present time, there are many questions about the viability of this
option.

Chairman Manske was contacted by the City of Fond du Lac requesting
that the Town post a speed limit of 25 mph between the bypass and the
Martin Road Bridge on Martin Road.  Traffic coming off the bypass has
a tendency to speed along this area.  Therefore, motion was made and
seconded to approve a resolution posting the speed limit on Martin
Road north of the bypass to the City limits at 25 mph.  Motion
carried.

Fire Chief Sanborn reported that the Fire Department Equipment Truck
was purchased.  The delivery date is around September of 2010.  Total
cost with the Pierce discount is $294,108.00.  

The Clerk presented information on fees for apartment plan reviews and
occupancy permits.  It was noted that in addition to these fees,
impact, stormwater and water fees would need to be determined.  A
development agreement would also be needed for apartment complexes. 
Plans will soon be submitted by Ann Cook of MSA Engineering, and the
proper procedures for review are unclear.  After review, it was
determined the Board would need to review the procedures and fees at a
workshop meeting.  The Workshop will be held on January 25 at 6:00
pm.

The topic for Stormwater Education for January is carpet cleaning and
proper water disposal.

Supervisor Schmitz attended the Airport meeting where the topics
included the new snowplow used on the runways, and the retirement of
Lee Perrizzo.  

Clerk Supple reported that a copy of a letter sent to Harry Schmitz,
Jr. by the County was received.  This letter states that Mr. Schmitz
has 30 days to remove abandoned vehicles and junk from the property. 
Thirty days is up on February 4, 2010.  A copy of the letter will be
forwarded to Attorney St. Peter.
On January 19, 2010 a joint Stormwater Meeting will be held, and on
January 20, 2010 the Ambulance Committee will be meeting at the Town
Hall.

No Board of Appeals meetings are scheduled.  On the agenda for
Planning is review of the burning ordinance, firearms in subdivisions,
outdoor burning furnaces and the Boysa Apartment plans.

No annexations.  Road projects continue to be snowplowing.  The State
has closed the bridge by Schmitty’s on Winnebago Drive for upgrade and
repair.

No CSM’s.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the operator’s licenses for
Amanda Gindt, Louise Zenner, Sean Kok and Tracie Reinke.  Motion
carried.

Sanitary District #6 and #3 meetings are scheduled for January 19,
2010. 

Town of Fond du Lac polls for the upcoming February election for
Oakfield School Board will not be open.  Oakfield voters in the Town
will have the option to vote by absentee ballot or vote in the Town of
Byron.  The April election will be held as usual with Town polls
opening at 7:00 am.

Supervisor Schmitz reported ongoing work on the water tower.

Chairman Manske noted that there is a new government program “cash for
appliances”.  Information on the subject will be in the permit
office.

Chairman Manske stated that even though Mr. Mathweg had not attended
the meeting, the matter of plowing snow in Esterbrook Estates Addition
1 would be reviewed.  He reported that the Town has no obligation to
plow the snow since there are no houses constructed in the
development.  He added that there is concern over the manholes in the
subdivision being above grade, and that since it is a gravel road,
there would be displacement of the stone.  Attorney Parmentier noted
that the Town could be held liable for manhole damage and water
infiltration if they choose to plow the road.  While the matter was
being discussed, Mr. Mathweg arrived.  Mr. Mathweg stated that he had
requested the Town plow the roads within one week of a snowfall.  He
stated that he had received no formal answer other than an e-mail
denying the request.  Mr. Mathweg asked for reasons for the denial. 
Chairman Manske stated that the Town was concerned over being held
responsible for damage to manholes, water infiltration, curb damage,
and gravel displacement.  Mr. Mathweg stated he would be happy to have
the road plowed with one pass through.  He added he would agree to
hold harmless the Town for gravel displacement, curb damage, manhole
damage and water infiltration.  He added he wants to market the land,
but the real estate agents are unable to get onto the property. 
Attorney Parmentier noted the Town would need a formal contract
stating the terms for plowing.  The recommendation was made to review
the contract yearly.  Mr. Mathweg objected.  After discussion, motion
was made and seconded to plow the roads within the subdivision
contingent on a signed agreement holding the Town harmless for gravel
displacement, curb damage, manhole damage, and water infiltration.  In
addition, a time frame for plowing would be set and it would be stated
the Town would not be setting a precedent for plowing other unfinished
subdivisions.  The contract would be reviewed yearly.  Motion carried.




Motion was made and seconded to adjourn.  Motion carried.

Submitted by Patti Supple, Town Clerk
