Board to review the zoning of properties west of the Community Church
on both the north and south sides of Highway 23.   Ellen DeMarco asked
where the commercial properties next to the Community Church would
have road access.  It would be from Streblow Drive by the Church.  Don
Schmitz asked for the depth of rezoning.  The request is for the
entire Streblow property, and the properties north and south of

MONTHLY MEETING

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, Assistant
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 with one change, the weeds were on
Kennedy Drive not Garden Drive.  

Charles Crites expressed concern over liability to the Town for ponds
constructed in subdivisions.  Attorney St. Peter reported that the
Town bears no liability for ponds on private property, that it is rare
for a Town would have liability for ponds.  The Clerk noted that in
the covenants or development agreement the ownership of the ponds is
addressed, and in most cases is the responsibility of the adjoining
property owners.

Bob Streblow asked for an update on the recycling/garbage pickup. 
Bins will be delivered to the Town Hall and distributed around
December 18th depending on the weather.   

The rezoning of properties along Highway 23 was discussed.  Clerk
Supple read the minutes from the Planning Commission with the
recommendation to rezone the Streblow property to a depth of 1000 feet
until the deed restrictions could be reviewed.  Chairman Manske noted
that the deed restrictions do not restrict the Town from rezoning the
property, but is a private matter between Mr. Streblow and the Church.
 James Acheson asked if there is a concern over water availability. 
It is not since water lines are already in the area.  Chairman Manske
reiterated that the Town Board had requested the Planning Commission
consider rezoning other properties on Highway 23.  John Dux stated
that he and other residents in this area were against rezoning more
than the Streblow property.  He added that it was premature to rezone.
 After discussion motion was made by Giese and seconded by Manske to
rezone the entire Streblow property from AG to Commercial as
requested.  Motion carried with 2 aye 1 nay vote.

The surveyor hired to provide a legal description of the Garden Drive
property needs more information to complete his work.  It was
recommended that the Surveyor-Jay Panetti- contact Bob Giese and Cathy
Sharp to set up an appointment to look over the area in question.  Don
Schmitz asked why this work is being done at this time.  Chairman
Manske stated that with the work on Winnebago Drive scheduled for 2008
the DOT has agreed to include the reconstruction of Garden Drive at
the same time.  This will provide access for Schmitty’s Bar as well as
provide a safer access for Garden Drive residents.  Until the
description of the property is completed, no action will be taken.

The five year contract for emergency services provided by the Village
of North Fond du Lac is up for renewal.  After review by Attorney St.
Peter, motion was made and seconded to approve the contract renewal
with the agreed upon insurance changes. Motion carried.

After reviewing the submitted list, motion was made and seconded to
approve the following poll workers for 2008.  Chief Inspectors Cheryl
Eilert and Cathy Streblow, and poll workers Marlene Berenz, Sandra
Weninger, Shirley Gurath, Joanne Steenburg, Barb Woehlke, Loretta
Fatke, Loretta Koenigs, Donna Spannbauer, Mary Karrman, Virginia
Knecht, Karen Arrowood, Rita Gross-Hahn, Kitty Hansen, David Meier,
Craig Peltonen, Betty Ryan and Lois Steblow.  Motion carried.  Motion
was also made and seconded to approve a resolution allowing the Town
Clerk to determine the number of poll workers needed for each
election.  Motion carried.

After discussion of the merits of setting aside monies for 2008 road
improvements and future fire department equipment needs, motion was
made and seconded to set aside $50,000.00 for fire department
equipment-for a total of $100,000.00 and $50,000.00 to the Road,
Bridge, Culvert & Equipment fund to update River Road.  Motion
carried.  The recommendation was also made to take the $80,000.00 set
aside for the Martin Road Bridge to either the Fire Department
equipment fund or for the replacement of the Town’s Oshkosh truck.  

The contract for rental of the Simon Park land is up for renewal. 
Phil Kramer expressed interest in renewing the contract, and after
discussion of the merits of renewing the contract, motion was made by
Giese and seconded by Manske to renew the contract at $65.00 per acre
for two years.  Motion carried with 2 aye and Schmitz abstain. 

Chris Kaempfer, Attorney St. Peter, and Chairman Manske met to discuss
various possibilities for funding the water tower project.  Mr.
Kaempfer and Dave Wagner will be reviewing the various possibilities
for presentation in January.

HNTB has provided no new information on the Short & Sassy noise
disturbance.  After reviewing the previously provided reports, Short &
Sassy sent a letter to Board members stating they felt that HNTB had
absolved them of any noise disturbance and asked that “harassment” of
their business be stopped.  

Mashuda Contractors has agreed to provide the funding needed toinstall
the fire plugs in the Stillwater Estates subdivision.  Denny Rahn has
agreed to do the needed work.  Fire Chief Craig Sanborn agreed to get
estimates from Mr. Rahn and provide same to Attorney St. Peter.

Representatives from Fondy Sports met with Attorney St. Peter and
Chairman Manske concerning the wording of the agreement between the
Town and the Sports Complex.  Attorney St. Peter will provide an
updated draft of the agreement for the January monthly meeting.

residents around December 18th.  Pickup of garbage will be done weekly
and recycling every other week.  Pickup days will be Tuesday for
residents east of Highway 41 and Wednesday for residents west of
Highway 41.  Besides the letter sent with the tax bills, an article
will be put in the Action Advertiser explaining the change.

The Town Board hosted the Town’s Association Christmas Party.

No meetings for Board of Appeals or Planning Commission.  Clerk Supple
noted that a long time member of the Board of Appeals and Planning
Commission, Tom Francis had died.  She added that his input into Town
issues would be greatly missed and thanked him for his long time
service to the Town.

2008.  Chairman Manske also noted that applications for TRIP funding
