November 12, 2007 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
NOVEMBER 12, 2007
7:00 PM

The Monthly Meeting was called to order by Chairman Harold Manske. 
Present were Chairman Manske, Supervisor Phyllis Giese, Clerk Patti
Supple, Treasurer Mel Buechel, Attorney John St. Peter, and various
Town residents.  Supervisor LeRoy Schmitz was absent.  Confirmation
was made of open meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting
were approved as presented.

County Supervisor Mike Gannon reported that the design has been
awarded for the reconstruction of Pioneer Road and the bridge to the
east of the Town Hall.  This project is scheduled for 2009.  The Fire
Department is concerned that the road to the Town Hall and the fire
trucks will be cut off during reconstruction.  This matter will need
to be addressed before reconstruction begins.

The reconfiguring of Garden Drive was reviewed.  Gremmer & Associates
has been contacted to provide a legal description of the area so the
project can continue.  Action on the matter was tabled until the legal
description can be provided.

Attorney St. Peter provided a rough draft of a development agreement
for the Fondy Sports Complex.  Since this was the first opportunity
for the owners of the complex and the Town Board to review the
agreement, it was decided to table action until the agreement can be
reviewed by all.  Chairman Manske reported that the Town Board will
review  the development agreement but that the Planning Commission
will need to review the site and drainage plans.  Steve Strong asked
about the viability of the present mound system and whether it will
meet the needs of future growth of the complex.  This matter will also
need to be addressed, since the City of Fond du Lac will not annex the
area and provide City sewer and water.

Chairman Manske reported that the proposals from both Veolia and Waste
Management concerning garbage and recycling pickup have been reviewed.
 The contracts from both companies have also been studied.  The needed
change concerning the capping of the CPI at 5% w/o the added fuel
surcharge has been addressed, as well as the “no charge” for picking
up the old bins.  After discussion it was decided to get the 65 gallon
recycling and trash containers, with an option for homeowners to get
the larger 95 gallon.  Property owners will have until March 31, 2008
to request the larger bins without having to pay extra fees.  There
will be weekly trash pickup and every other week recycling pickup.  
January 1, 2008 will be the start date.  Motion was made and seconded
to approve the Veolia proposal/contract with the above stipulations. 
Motion carried.

The recycling grant requirements call for a representative of the Town
Board to act as the official representative for the recycling grant. 
Motion was made and seconded to approve the Resolution appointing the
Town Chairman as official representative for the recycling grant. 
Motion carried.

Tim Mathweg reported that all requested work concerning the
shouldering and culvert issues has been completed in Esterbrook
Estates, and the Town can now take over jurisdiction of the roads in
Esterbrook Estates.  After discussion, motion was made and seconded to
take over jurisdiction of the roads in Esterbrook Estates.  Motion
carried.

Clerk Supple read the recommendations of the Planning Commission
concerning the Feucht Financial moving sign.  After discussion, motion
was made and seconded to approve the sign with the presented color
scheme, with a minimum 5 second hold on the message display, a 15 foot
setback and verification that the sign is not in the vision triangle. 
Motion carried.

The next meeting concerning the water tower is scheduled for November
26, 2007 at 5:00 pm.  Dave Wagner will present an update on the
financial plans.  The public hearing date will be discussed as will
the best way to inform the public concerning the meeting.

Tim Mathweg reported that he has received no notification that the
sewer in Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 has been approved.  Chairman
Manske stated that the approval of the sewer in Addition 1 is
conditional on the finalizing of work in Esterbrook Estates.  Clerk
Supple reported that in her notes of the last SD #3 meeting the
Commissioners approved the sewer conditional on the completion of the
roadwork in Esterbrook Estates.  Tim Mathweg requested a copy of the
minutes.  The Board requested verification of the inspections done by
Gremmer & Associates as well as Steve Bergman.  Copies to be forwarded
to Mr. Mathweg.

Mr. Kramer is working with HNTB to try to resolve the noise issues
with Short & Sassy Trucking.

Attorney St. Peter read the letter from Mashuda Contractors with their
proposal on how to resolve the issue of the dry pond.  Due to the fact
that one part of their proposal requires the digging of a well to
provide water for the pond, the Town Board rejected their ideas and
proposed that since the Fire Department would rather use the more
easily accessed ponds in Stillwater Estates that Mashuda install at
their expense the needed hydrants.  This proposal will be forwarded to
Mashuda for review.

Attorney St. Peter was directed to contact Mr. McArthur and let him
know that the last fencing material he proposed meets with Board
approval and he may install the fence.  He must also agree to keep any
stored materials below the fence line.

Final judgment was received on the Harry Schmitz lawsuit for
$37,650.00 in the Town’s favor.  A lien will be placed on the
property, and Mr. Schmitz has 45 days to appeal.  A $25.00 per day
forfeiture and a 12% interest rate is in effect and may be charged,
will continue as long as the work is not completed. The judge has
warned Mr. Schmitz that if he appeals the judgment he will reinstate
all three counts which will triple the forfeiture.  
The Board of Appeals has no upcoming meetings.  The Planning
Commission will meet on December 5, 2007 to review the Streblow
rezoning request.

No Annexations or CSM’s.

Chairman Manske reported that Bechaud Beach Road has been completed. 
The Reinhardt Road Bridge is open, and Horseshoe Lane has been
completed.   Don Schmitz stated that River Road ditches have been cut,
but was concerned about the weeds in other areas.  He also noted that
it was getting late to stripe the roads.

Motion was made and seconded to approve Amanda Garlow and Jackie
Nelson from provisional operators licensed to regular operators
licenses due to the fact they have both completed the alcohol
awareness class.  Motion carried.

A meeting of Sanitary District #3 is scheduled for November 19, 2007
at 4:30 pm.

Clerk Supple reported that she attended a mandated Clerk’s meeting for
voting.  Due to the State of Wisconsin not approving the voting
machines recently purchased, there has been a delay in obtaining the
transmission machine for sending voting records to the County from the
polls.  This may cause a delay in election results.  She also
requested that anyone not registered to vote register as soon as
possible.  With the presidential election coming in 2008
pre-registration is vital.  The recommendation was made to add voter
registration to the tax newsletter.

Phyllis Giese reported that the potholes have been filled in Garden
Drive and weeds have been cut.  She also reported that the new fire
number signs can be seen so much better than the old ones.  Chairman
Manske reported that the houses on Guindon Boulevard and Ellis Street
will need to be ordered.
