August 9, 2010 Monthly Meeting


TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
AUGUST 9, 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, Attorney John St. Peter and various Town
residents.  Treasurer Jody Roffers was absent.  Confirmation was made
of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were
approved as presented.

Ed Montsma requested more information on the letter he received
concerning vision clearances on corners.  He noted that he and another
farmer were sent letters concerning their growing crops and the need
to clip them to provide better vision clearance.  Chairman Manske
stated that in doing research on the matter it came to his attention
that the Town, State and County all have differing requirements based
on the traffic flow etc.  In talking to Tom Janke, seasonal crops are
usually not determined a hazard unless they completely block an
intersection.  AECOM looked over the area, and their report is
attached.  Next year, crops in these areas will need to be low
standing crops, or the vision clearance area cannot be planted.  Mr.
Montsma noted that he rents the land, and the owner of the property
would like to be notified of concerns also.  It was also suggested
that a copy of the ordinance be included in all correspondence.  

Mr. Montsma noted that damage was done to a driveway on the east side
of the road.  He felt the Town should fix the damage since it was due
to construction of the water lines.  Chairman Manske reported the
water lines are on the west side of the road in this area, and the
damage was more than likely done when gas lines were installed.  He
suggested Mr. Montsma contact the gas company.

Lloyd Chapman was present for an update on the status of the new
Farmland Preservation Laws and its impact on the sale of his Mother’s
property.  John St. Peter noted that the Town needs to update both the
ordinances and the Town map to conform with the new laws.  This could
take several months to accomplish.  After discussion, Mr. Chapman
decided to hold the CSM until the Town has updated the ordinances.  In
addition, Mr. Chapman asked for clarification in determining whether a
variance or easement was the best route to take on the CSM.  Attorney
St. Peter provided the needed information.

Residents along Winnebago Drive submitted a petition asking for the
speed limit to be reduced along Winnebago Drive from 35 MPH to 30 MPH.
 This petition will be forwarded to Tom Janke, Highway Commissioner
with the Town’s blessing.

Pay request PR1600802-10 for $67,232.46 was submitted for payment. 
After review, motion was made and seconded to approve the payment. 
Motion carried.  Pay request PR1600901-04 was submitted for payment. 
It was noted that the shoulder work along Brown Road needs to be
refurbished before final payment should be made.  After discussion,
motion was made and seconded to approve payment contingent on the
contractor being notified of the work that needs to be completed and
agreement to complete the same.  Motion carried.

The status report for the water project included the SCADA system
being operational in mid September and the water tower is being
painted.

On August 3, 2010 a meeting was held concerning the updates to the
Farmland Preservation Laws.  A questionnaire was presented at that
time and should be returned to the Clerk by August 26, 2010 for the
Board to review.  It was recommended that Attorney St. Peter provide
updated wording for the ordinances for the Board to review.  Maps will
also be updated.  Attorney Matt Parmentier was commended for the
information he provided at the August 3 meeting.

The topic for Stormwater management is rain barrel maintenance and
algae blooms.

Supervisor Schmitz reported that an airport meeting is pending.

No meetings are scheduled for the Board of Appeals or Planning
Commission.  

No annexations or CSM’s.

The County will soon begin the widening of Esterbrook Road.  Patching
will also be done.  Brown Road has some asphalt breakage on the edges
that will need to be addressed.  The County is unsure if Garden Drive
will be completed yet this fall.  No Parking signs need to be
installed along Garden Drive by Schmitty’s.  The fence is up in the
smoking area and serving outdoors is done by 10:00 pm.  The
installation of fire number signs along Winnebago Drive will have to
be monitored.  Several of the signs are installed incorrectly.  Paving
is almost completed.  The bridge by Clarence’s Harbor is being fixed,
and some manholes are being redone.

Motion was made and seconded to approve provisional operator’s
licenses for Tammy Berger and Brian Walters for Bud & Shirley’s and
Jessica Witt for Top Stick Bar.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to approve an operator’s license for
Theresa Decker for Bud & Shirley’s.  Motion carried.

Sanitary District #3 and #6 will hold a meeting on August 19, 2010 at
5:30 pm.
