May 14, 2012 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
May 14, 2012
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, Attorney Matt
Parmentier and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as
presented.

Chris Kaempfer of Kaempfer and Associates was present with updates on
the Utility projects.  As part of the status report, it was noted that
Joel Streblow has still not signed the updated paperwork.  The Village
of North Fond du Lac wants to proceed with the project in order to get
the chlorination system up and running.  Mr. Kaempfer presented
options for the façade of the chlorination building.  The Board
chose the brown building with plain corners.  He also noted the access
point will be gated.
The Board reviewed Contract Revision #8.   Motion was made and
seconded to approve the Resolution approving Kaempfer and Associates
booster pump station and SCADA system agreement for engineering with
the Village of North Fond du Lac.  (This was needed in order for
Kaempfer to submit the contract to the Village.)  Motion carried.
The gate valve issue was discussed.  Mr. Kaempfer noted that another
community has had issues with the gate valves.  After discussion,
motion was made and seconded to submit the gate valves to an
independent firm for evaluation.  In addition, the Board wants
Kaempfer to request the other community split the evaluation costs. 
Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to appoint Lori Ransom as a poll worker. 
Motion carried.

Jen Pfeiffer was present with other residents on Canterbury Drive to
discuss drainage issues.  She noted the work on Forest Avenue Road had
made a difference in the water issues.  A letter has been received
from the DNR concerning the second pump and potential issues. 
Chairman Manske noted that the letter was received to late for review
by either the engineer or attorney before this meeting.  The next step
is to have the present pump repaired.  Ms. Pfeiffer noted that on May
23 the residents of Prairie Estates will be meeting to discuss the
water issues and financials.  Chairman Manske asked if the pumps that
were restarted on the adjoining farm land had made any difference. 
Ms. Pfeiffer stated that the property owners in that area might have
been helped.  Ms. Pfeiffer objected to the fact that the Town Board
had no knowledge of the water issues in this subdivision prior to
approval of the Final Plat.  She stated that a board member has said
many times that there was knowledge of the water situation.  An irate
resident noted that if the Town Board was not willing to work with the
residents maybe a lawsuit would make them take notice.  Chairman
Manske noted that in order for the Board to review the matter the
following information is needed:  a determination on the by-laws of
the subdivision on how many residents must approve the work and the
homeowners association must be involved.  Attorney Parmentier also
noted that the residents should ensure that the new pump would really
solve the water issues.  Motion was made and seconded to table the
matter for more information.  Motion carried.

The Airport has approached the Town to vacate road easements on
Airport property.  Motion was made and seconded to vacate the
Rogersville Road and Forest Avenue Road easements on Airport property.
 Motion carried.  Harry Lange asked why Rogersville Road can’t be
opened for through traffic.  He stated it would ease a lot of the
traffic problems.  Chairman Manske reported the Airport will not allow
the road to be reopened due to Board of Aeronautics rules.

Attorney Parmentier presented copies of the Wind Energy ordinance.  He
noted that recent rulings were taken into consideration when drafting
the ordinance.  He noted that in order for Town’s to regulate wind
energy, they must have an ordinance on record.  The ordinance cannot
be stricter than State mandates.  Motion was made and seconded to
approve the Resolution on wind energy.  Motion carried.

Jeremy Thiesfeldt, of the 52nd District State Assembly introduced
himself to the residents.  

Chairman Manske reported that the County has submitted estimates for
the resurfacing Of Brown Road from CTH D to Esterbrook Road at
$84,559.00 and Esterbrook Road from Brown Road to CTH T at
$114,047.50.  Pavement marking is $9964.00 and will be done after
crackfilling is done.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the
work on the above projects.  Motion carried.  It was decided that
Rogersville Road will be patched as needed this year.  

No action was taken on Emery Lane.  The County reviewed the road and
gave an estimated cost of $45,607.50.

The Stormwater topic for May was rainbarrel information and coupons
for a reduction in cost.

Supervisor Schmitz attended the Airport meeting.  The 5 ear plan was
submitted for roads.  There is a highway meeting he will attend on
Thursday.  Chairman Mankse attended the Ambulance Committee meeting
and noted the Village of North Fond du Lac is still interviewing for
the EM Director position.  He added that there has been a problem with
calls to Scott St. which will be rectified by the boundary changing to
the rail lines not the center of the road.

There are no Board of Appeals meetings scheduled.  The Planning
Committee will meet to discuss solar energy ordinances and farm
animals in residential zoning.

The Open Book will be on June 1st from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and the
Board of Review will be on June 18 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.
