March 8, 2010 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
MARCH 8, 2010
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
amended to correct a name in paragraph 5 to Bob Streblow.  

There were no public comments.

The Utility projects in the proposed apartment complex were discussed.
 Chris Kaempfer noted that there are advantages and disadvantages to
both the public and private systems proposed.  He noted that the
Department of Commerce regulates the private system and the DNR would
regulate a public system.  There is better maintenance control on a
public system.  Chairman Manske noted that meters can keep track of
flow measures which can be used to check the system.  Mr. Kaempfer
stated that public systems are more common.  There is plenty of water
available for this project and future projects, both industrial and
private.  After reviewing both options, Mr. Kaempfer stated that the
public system provides more control for the municipality in case of
leaks in the lines, and allows for the looping of lines for better
service flow.  Mr. Boysa reported that they would prefer a private
system.  The concern over maintenance of the system as a private
entity was discussed.  It was determined that a metering system would
be needed to allow for checking the system and an easement would be
needed to allow the Town to inspect the lines periodically.  The
sanitary sewer system could also be private.  This would save on
installation costs for the developer.  The same concerns as the water
maintenance would need to be addressed.  In the development agreement,
probably in section 2 page 2,  it would be stated that the Town would
have access/easement to inspect the systems and make repairs as
needed.  Charges for non-compliance or lack of repairs would be
charged back to the owner.  (This agreement would transfer to future
owners.)  A metering system would also be added to check flows of on
sewer and water lines. It was recommended that Attorney St. Peter add
the private system requirements to the development agreement.

Mr. Boysa requested the Town reconsider its stand on a private well
for irrigation purposes and maintenance of water level in the ponds. 
He noted that they have tried to use runoff to fill and maintain the
ponds, but this is not feasible.  He added they are willing to pay the
municipal water costs to initially fill the ponds, but would like to
use the well for maintenance.  He added he is concerned about the
safety around the ponds if water levels fall below the safety shelves
on the ponds.  He also noted they would like to maintain the
appearance of the area by keeping the ponds filled.  Mr. Kaempfer
noted that the installation of one irrigation well would not be an
issue for the water table and would probably be drawn from the
sandstone which is not usually potable water.  Mr. Boysa added this
would not be a high capacity well and would not be run on a daily
basis.   This matter was tabled at this time.

Mr. Kaempfer noted hat the SCADA system improvements must be approved
in order to be operational when the Tower is ready for use.  Motion
was made and seconded to approve the SCADA system improvements. 
Motion carried.  The chlorinator issue will be addressed as soon as
the easement issues are resolved.

Status report # 21 was presented.

The CSM for the Ford property was presented.  The Planning Committee
and Gremmer Engineering recommendations were reviewed.  The main
concern was the lack of a second access to the remaining residentially
zoned Ford property.  The Planning Committee’s dedicated road easement
on the east side of the property was not considered a viable option. 
In addition, the potential of access over the McDonald or Wright
properties was considered to be too risky since neither site is
considering development at this time.  It was decided to table
approval of the CSM until the April meeting when the Development
agreement is finalized, the Gremmer recommendations are added, the
Planning Committee recommendations are added and the map shows the
Ford access road onto Esterbrook Road.  Residents in the area again
expressed concerns over the development on such a large scale with the
concerns over traffic flow onto Highway 23.  It was recommended Mr.
Boysa proceed with plans for a private water and sewer system.  The
well issue was discussed.  While all board members were uncomfortable
with a private well, Chairman Manske noted the ponds need to maintain
their depth in order for the safety shelves to be viable.  A “float”
could be added to the well/pond to allow for automatic shut off of
water once the ponds reach a proper level.  Mr. Kaempfer noted the
well usage would be comparable to two private home wells.  Motion was
made by Supervisor Schmitz and seconded by Chairman Manske to allow
the construction of a well due to potential safety issues, but the
initial filling of the ponds would be with municipal water.  Motion
carried with 2 aye, Giese nay.

The CSM, development agreement and other plans should be updated with
the recommendations from the various boards.  Plans will be reviewed
at the April meeting.  It was recommended that Mr. Boysa check with
the Village of North Fond du Lac concerning the purchase of water. 
The letter from Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Waldschmidt was put on record. 
Concerns included the added traffic and the potential for more police
and fire calls to the area.  Mr. Boysa maintained that applicants are
screened for credit, criminal and sexual predator offenses.  A
full-time manager is on site as well as maintenance workers and yard
workers.  

The ambulance service agreement with the City of Fond du Lac was
discussed.  It was noted that rates will increase.  After long
negotiations with the City it was determined the City would raise
rates at $3.00 per year for the next 7 years to bring Town rates in
line with the City rates.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the
Ambulance Service Agreement with the City. Motion carried.  Service
with other municipalities for ambulances will be reviewed for cost
savings in the future.
The purchase of a one ton truck and plow for Town use was discussed. 
Cost of the truck will be @ $40,453.00 from Les Stumpf Ford and the
box with hydraulic system @ $8425.00 from Monroe and the plow package
@ $5555.00 from Kelly’s Repair.  Motion was made and seconded to
approve the purchase of the truck, box and plow with one more bid on
the plow being considered.  Motion carried.
Money for the purchase will be from the Road, Bridge, Culvert & Eq.
fund with money set aside for the upgrade to the Martin Road Bridge. 
(This money set aside for the Martin Road bridge will not be used due
to the fact the City is paying for the bridge upgrade.)

Motion was made and seconded to approve the Resolution approving the
Annual Stormwater Report and its submission to the DNR.  Motion
carried.

As stated above, the Annual Stormwater Report has been completed and
will be submitted to the DNR.  A flier on the NEWSC stormwater
management activities was provided to residents.

No meetings attended.

The Planning Committee will be meeting to review plans for a cellular
tower on Reinhardt Road, a burning ordinance and firearms ordinance. 
No Board of Appeals meetings are scheduled.

No annexations or road projects or CSM’s.

There is a 3” drop in Canterbury Drive due to a water main sawcut.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the change from a provisional
operator’s license to a regular license for Lindsey Gorka.  Motion
carried.

Sanitary Districts #3 and #6 will meet on March 16, 2010 at 5:00 pm.

There is a FDL County Economic Development dinner .  There is a
meeting on March 11, 2010 at MPTC on the Winnebago Drive project. 
Supervisor Schmitz noted there are new conversion fees for selling
farmland and taking it out of production.  There are meetings
concerning the Highway 23 and 151 bypass upgrades.
