April 9, 2007 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
APRIL 9, 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.

Jeff McArthur reported that he had received a letter from Town Code
Enforcement concerning debris from his storage shed blowing around and
messy items stored outside the shed.  He noted that he rented the shed
from Harry Lange before he purchased it, and that when he purchased
the shed on January 5, 2006 it was zoned A-1 and rezoned without his
knowledge to RR.  He added that all materials are banded together and
stored on pallets.  In addition Mr. McArthur felt that he was
“grandfathered” in for use.  Chairman Manske noted that the rezoning
was done before Mr. McArthur purchased the shed.  Attorney St. Peter
noted that commercial storage is not allowed in AG or RR zoning. 
Chairman Manske noted that Mr. Lange stored materials inside the shed
not outside.  The consensus of the Board members was that Mr. McArthur
could be allowed to store materials in the shed but not outside.  No
agreement was reached. Mr. McArthur requested verification of the
zoning codes.  Attorney St. Peter agreed to furnish him with the
appropriate codes.  Attorney St. Peter added that the burden of
proving continuous commercial use was on Mr. McArthur.  The matter
will be up for review at the May meeting.

Ralph Loehr requested that the Town web-site be updated.  Chuck Schob
asked whether other townships cooperated on the web-site.  There are
links to other web pages.

Noise from the trucking businesses continue to plague the Kramer
family.  Charlie Martin noted that the businesses were issued a
conditional use permit contingent on berms being constructed and a
tree buffer being planted.  He added that an occupancy permit was not
granted for Short & Sassy Trucking.  He felt the Town should not incur
the expense of a noise study until the variance requirements were met.
 Mr. Kramer noted that he has been reporting undue noise levels since
2004 and he wants the matter taken care of.  After discussion, motion
was made and seconded to hire HNTB to review the previous records of
barometer readings, etc, and to set up equipment to measure noise
levels including over a weekend.  Motion carried.  Since the buildings
seem to be for sale, the recommendation was made to have Attorney St.
Peter forward a letter to the realtor informing them that the Town has
ordinances and occupancy permit requirements that must be met before
the buildings can be occupied.

Chairman Manske reported that the DOT is requesting a resolution
approving the jurisdictional transfer of Highway 175 to the Village of
North Fond du Lac, and the Townships of Friendship and Fond du Lac. 
Motion was made and seconded to approve the resolution approving the
jurisdictional transfer.  Motion carried.

Samson Builders has a partially completed home on Lot 26 of Meadow
Estates.  The home has been under construction for over a year. 
Charlie Martin reported that there are several building violations
that need to be corrected.  After discussion, motion was made and
seconded to send letters to Samson Builders and owner Kathleen Haefele
requesting an update on when the home will be completed and noting
that the Town building permit is good for one year and will need to be
renewed.  Motion carried.

A workshop meeting was held to discuss the Kaempfer recommendations on
the water tower project.  Dave Wagner of Ehlers & Associates was also
present to give an overview of financing options.  Attorney St. Peter
reiterated that only the residents of the water district would pay for
the tower.  The recommended site location was on Brown Road near
Esterbrook.  Since potentially over 400 residents will be notified,
the recommendation was made to find a larger site than the Town Hall
to have the meeting.  Clerk Supple will contact the Community Church.

Attorney St. Peter will be scheduling a conference with Judge Nuss
concerning the Harry Schmitz lawsuit.  Judge Nuss is upset that Mr.
Schmitz did not accept the Town’s offer.  A summary judgment hearing
will be scheduled for July 16, 2007.  Attorney St. Peter will be
preparing a motion showing that Mr. Schmitz is in violation of the
Town ordinances.  If the motion is deemed sufficient by the Judge he
will approve a summary judgment, if it is not deemed sufficient, a
date will be set for trial.  Both the Judge and the Attorney for Mr.
Schmitz were reminded that the Town has a daily forfeiture on record. 
Mr. Schmitz’s Attorney requested that an engineer review the Town’s
check list of concerns and give a cost estimate.  Attorney St. Peter
reminded all Board members and Permit Issuer Jim Supple that due to
litigation, any contact with Mr. Schmitz must be done through his
office.  Mr. Schmitz recently requested that he be allowed to store
milling on his property.  Since the location and type of milling was
not specified, the request was not granted.  

Tim Mathweg sent a letter reporting that Town & Country will be doing
the sewer work in Esterbrook Estates Addition 1.  

Chairman Manske will be attending the MPO meeting on Wednesday.

The Board of Appeals will be holding four meetings on April 25, 2007.

The Planning Committee will be meeting to review the Fondy Sports
Complex request for a go-kart track, a CSM for Commerce Court and
River Road, and plans for a day care center.

There were no annexations, CSM’s or license requests. There are no
road updates.

Fox Drive has a hollow area under the road due to the SD #3
construction.  Slurry was placed in the hole until the problem can be
corrected.

The dump will open on April 14, 2007 and close on November 10, 2007. 
Hours are from 8 am to noon.

Schmitty’s Bar was cited for being open after hours on March 30,
2007.
