February 13, 2012 Monthly Meeting




TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
February 13, 2012
7:00 PM

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

Jim Supple, Permit Issuer, noted that some problems have come up with
the size of accessory buildings on residential lots.  At issue is
whether the size is the footprint of the building or the outer roof
edge.   Charlie Martin, Town Building Inspector, noted that the City
of Fond du Lac uses a percentage of the lot size to determine
accessory building sizes.  The Town’s 300sq.ft. size causes residents
to request a variance.  Attorney St. Peter noted that if the Board of
Appeals approves most accessory building requests, then the ordinance
should be changed to reflect the increased size.  Attorney St. Peter
also noted that the definition of building size should include/exclude
covered porches, etc.  Sample ordinances will be obtained for the
Planning Commission review.  Chairman Manske asked who polices and
enforces the Board of Appeals variance approvals.  Attorney St. Peter
stated the Town Board must enforce.  He also noted that the Permit
Issuer and the Inspectors should receive minutes of all meetings in
order to enforce the Boards recommendations.  The Board of Appeals
should also issue a time frame for compliance.  

Larry Goebel asked about the mil rate increase for the water utility
and where the Town had a water utility.  Chairman Manske stated that
the mil rate was for the water tower on the West Side of the Town. 
The Board felt that the Town as a whole benefited from the Tower, so
at least some of the cost is born by the entire Town.  Attorney St.
Peter noted that residents in the Water District paid more toward the
cost.

Kaempfer & Associates provided an update on the defective valves in
the water system.  The company that constructed the valves is claiming
the valves are not defective and that it was the installation that was
at fault.  Before continuing with contacting the installer, motion was
made and seconded to have the valves tested by an independent lab. 
Motion carried.  Attorney St. Peter recommended sending a letter to
the Insurance carrier of the potential claim.  

No one was present for either Mr. Steenburg or Streblow concerning the
contracts for the construction of the water utility buildings.  After
discussion, motion was made and seconded to authorize relocation
proceedings on the Steenburg property.  Motion carried.

Since Westwind Villas, LLC has not taken steps to pay their tax
obligations, motion was made and seconded to table indefinitely any
action on approval of the new building plans.  Motion carried.

The groundwater concerns at Canterbury and Forest Avenue Road was
addressed.  Attorney St. Peter noted that he had sent a letter to Mrs.
Pfeiffer’s lawyer stating the Board was unsure of just what Mrs.
Pfeiffer was requesting.  He recommended that a concrete request be
brought into the February meeting for review.  No one has come.

Motion was made and seconded to approve the contract with Excel
Engineering for sanitary billing and locate services.  Motion
carried.

The topic for Stormwater discussion is “Renew Our Waters”.  Clerk
Supple asked for an update on the MS-4 yearly report that is due on
March 31.  Attorney St. Peter stated he will have Attorney Matt
Parmentier update the Board.

Supervisor Schmitz will attend the Airport/Highway committee meeting
on Feb. 22.  Chairman Manske attended the MPO meeting where the
Hickory Road Bridge  and Hickory Road were discussed as was the
connection of the various biking and walking trails.

There are no upcoming Board of Appeals meetings scheduled.  The
Planning Committee will meet to review changes to the ordinances for
accessory buildings as well as the inclusion of a wind turbine and
solar panel ordinance. 

Clerk Supple noted that there will be a primary election for the Fond
du Lac School Board on February 21, 2012.
