May 14, 2007 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
MAY 14, 2007
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 Mel Buechel, Attorney John St.
Peter and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as
presented.

Mike Gannon reported that the reorganization of the County Board
boundaries has been completed.  The Town of Fond du Lac will remain
one board but combined with two other areas.  The status of the
Highway 151 bypass corrections by the State will be accomplished ten
years from now, but if the County will do the corrections it could be
done in three years.  He also noted that the Bridge on Pioneer Road
will be fixed when the railroad crossing work is done in 2009.

Chairman Manske reported that a letter was sent to Samson Builders and
property owner Kathy Haefele concerning the unfinished duplex on
Westview Drive.  The one year Town building permit has expired.  A
representative from Samson Builders was present to request a three
month extension of the permit and to request that a state inspector be
called in to replace the Town inspector Charlie Martin.  The
representative noted that he felt that Mr. Martin was requesting
unneeded information and that some of the information would cost too
much to provide.  Chairman Manske stated that the Board backs Mr.
Martin.  Mr. Martin added that TJI Services can provide all the
calculations requested at a nominal cost.  After discussion, motion
was made and seconded to keep Charlie Martin as inspector for the
project and to grant the three month extension for the project. 
Motion carried.

Fondy Sports Complex presented their plans for expansion of their
go-kart track onto the back of their property.  The Planning Committee
minutes stated that the main concerns of the neighbors were the noise
issues and the legality of the expansion.  Chairman Manske asked for
more information of the engine types for the go-karts and the
ownership of the vehicles used on the track. Dan Deuster stated that
Fondy Sports will have some vehicles and riders will be allowed to use
their own go-karts.  He added that there have been no complaints about
the go-kart track noise and that the back area can be bermed or trees
planted to provide more noise control.  He went on to explain that
lighting and dust issues have been eliminated.   Attorney St. Peter
stated that the Board needs to determine whether the sports complex is
allowed in Commercial zoning since it is not a listed use.  He added
that the Board will need to justify the recreational issue, noise
issues, site and drainage and land disturbing issues.  Residents in
the area were concerned about the noise issues.  After discussion,
motion was made and seconded to table action until the June meeting in
order to gather more information on the noise issues and the legal use
of the property.  Motion carried.

Clerk Supple reported that she contacted Computer Troubleshooters to
do some work on the Town computer.  The technician found that the
computer could not be upgraded to handle the new programs installed
and that a new computer system would be needed.  Cost for the computer
and installation would be $1600.00.  Motion was made and seconded to
approve the purchase of the new computer.  Motion carried.

An update was provided on the Jeff McArthur storage shed.  More
materials have been brought to the location and stored outside. 
Consensus was that since this is a residential area commercial use
should not be allowed to expand.  After discussion, motion was made
and seconded to send a follow-up letter stating that all materials
must be stored inside the building and that this cleanup must be
completed in 30 days.  Motion carried.

Treasurer Buechel reported that due to the new computer programs
required for tax collection reporting he would like to get some help
with the tax collection for the coming year.  He reported that he
feels he does not have enough knowledge of computers to run the new
programs required. Options for the Board are to hire an employee to
aid in tax collections, or to appoint a deputy treasurer.  Motion was
made and seconded to table the decision until an employment contract
can be written.  Motion carried.

A meeting concerning the water tower project is scheduled for May 15,
2007.  

Attorney St. Peter provided an update on the Harry Schmitz lawsuit. 
He reported that he will be submitting a summary judgment to the court
outlining the issues the Town needs corrected by Mr. Schmitz.  The
paperwork needs to be submitted by Memorial Day and a hearing on the
judgment will be heard on July 16, 2007.  It approved, Mr. Schmitz
will need to provide all information requested by the Town and make
all corrections to the property.  If denied, the case will go to
trial.  Mr. Schmitz’s attorney George Burnett has requested a
recommendation of a competent engineer to review the issues.  

Work on Esterbrook Estates Addition 1 has not been started.

HNTB has not done any noise level checks due to the fact that the
business has been quiet.  This matter will be kept on the agenda for
further updates.

Chairman Manske attended the meeting to be certified for the Board of
Review.

The Planning Committee is waiting to review plans for a daycare center
on the Van Horn property.  The Board of Appeals will be meeting to
review the Tighe garage and the Kissinger garage.
No annexations.

Chairman Manske will be riding with the County to review the roads. 
Bechaud Beach Road, Garden Drive, Martin Road and Esterbrook Road from
Brown to Highway 151 are slated for work this year.  Some roads need
striping and some shouldering is needed.  Scott and Morris need
gravel.

The Averbeck/Patin CSM for Commerce Court and River Road was
presented.  The Planning Committee reviewed the CSM and found no
concerns other than the need to ensure that covenants cover the
property.  Mr. Patin reported that covenants for the other lots do not
include this property.  The commercial property is being purchased by
Quality Products which also owns the adjoining property.  The
residential property will probably be split into two lots after the
soil tests are completed.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the
CSM contingent on covenants being added to the commercial property. 
Motion carried.

No licenses.

Restoration work still needs to be done in SD #3.

Clerk Supple reported she would like to send out a newsletter with an
update on Town wide garbage pickup costs, a Park update, and Fire
Department news.  A Town resident requested information on hazardous
waste disposal.

The Town web-site is slated for upgrade.
