October 11, 2010 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC 
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
OCTOBER 11, 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, and various Town
residents.  Attorney John St. Peter arrived for the Closed Session. 
Confirmation was made of open meeting notice. Minutes from the
previous meeting were approved as presented.

Tim Murphy had questions about the new assessments and the mil tax
rate.  Mr. Murphy stated that with the new assessment going up @ 17%
and keeping the mil rate the same, the Town would be getting more
money.  Chairman Manske explained that the State sets the total amount
the Town can assess on Town properties.  This rate is based on the
previous years assessment plus a “growth percentage”.   If the Town
would lower its assessment for a year, the subsequent years rate would
also be lowered.  

Mr. Murphy also asked what was being installed along River Road. 
Charter Communications is installing wires.

Fire Chief Craig Sanborn reported that the new lights in Fire Station
#2 are nice, but he feels the old lights should now be removed.  The
outside of the Station has been painted along with the doors.

Tony Koenigs asked for help with the Board of Appeals and enforcing
the requirements that the Board sets for homeowners.  Attorney St.
Peter reported that the Town should establish rules for enforcement. 
His recommendation was to notify the homeowner in writing of the
issue, and ask for cause as to why the permit should not be revoked. 
In the letter, state the concern or problem, and set a hearing date to
discuss the matter with the property owner or a time frame for the
owner to reply.  If the property owner then replies to the letter
within the time frame, the Board of Appeals then can accept or reject
the changes.  The requirements set by the Board should be part of the
permit process and all stipulations should be inspected by the
Building Inspector for compliance.

The Final Notice of Completion for the Brown Road Transmission Main
project was presented for approval.  A grader is being brought in to
repair the shoulder.   Motion was made and seconded to approve the
Final Completion of the Brown Road Transmission Main project.  Motion
carried.

An update on the Water Utility project was provided.  Depending on the
weather, the seeding along the roads will be done this spring.  A
water line break by Van Horn was repaired.

A meeting will be held to review the maps, ordinances and
comprehensive plan for compliance with the new Farmland Preservation
rulings.  A workshop will be held on November 1st with the Planning
Committee to go over the updates.  A public hearing will be held in
the near future to present the changes to Town residents.  After the
public hearing the changes will be sent to the County and State for
review and approval.  The question arose about the conversion fee
payment.  Unfortunately, at this time, the conversion fee must be paid
when land is rezoned out of agriculture zoning even if the Farmland
Preservation credits were never taken.

The topic for Stormwater Conservation is Household Hazardous Waste. 
Pamphlets on other topics are on the rack at the back of the hall.

Chairman Manske attended a meeting concerning ambulance service and
fees in the Town.  FEMA is requesting that municipalities with extra
equipment be on a disaster relief list and use that extra equipment
for mutual aid.  Funding is established to pay the municipality for
the equipment use.

The Planning Committee will meet with the Town Board to discuss the
Farmland Preservation updates.  Also on the agenda is the expansion of
the Pinno storage units on Ford Drive and a concept plan from Diamond
Auto.  

Attorney St. Peter reported that a new stature in effect concerns the
reconstruction of non-conforming buildings and the 50% ruling.  The
Town ordinance states that non-conforming buildings damaged more than
50% must be demolished.  The new statute states that due to fire
damage or storm damage buildings can be rebuilt or repaired.  The
reconstruction must maintain the original footprint except in the case
of the bathroom or kitchen expansion.  This matter will need to be
added to the Town ordinances.

No Board of Appeals meetings are scheduled.  No annexations or CSM’s.

Esterbrook Road work is continuing after a delay for Historical
checks.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the operator’s license for
Patrice Peterson at Engies.  Motion carried.

Sanitary District #3 will meet on October 14, 2010 at 5:30 pm.

The Clerk reported that in reviewing prices for new tables, Wegner
Office Supply price is $180.00 and the cart $500.00 and Needsom
Supplies is $215.00 per table and $285.00 for the cart.  She will also
check at Menards.  On November 2, 2010 from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm will be
the next election.  A letter was received from the Town of Taycheedah
stating they would not approve the lowering of the speed limit on
Winnebago Drive.  Parking on Winnebago Drive will be a County issue.

Supervisor Schmitz will attend the Airport Committee meeting.
