August 13, 2012 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
August 13, 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 John St.
Peter and various Town residents.  Confirmation was made of open
meeting notice.  Minutes from the previous meeting were approved as
presented.

Don Cooper of Paradise Court noted that the entire Valley Creek
Subdivision has been paved except for Paradise Court.  In a letter to
the Town Chairman and Town Attorney he noted that he and his neighbors
have contacted Mr. Rademann and have received no response.  A few
years ago gravel was hauled in, but no paving was done.  Chairman
Manske stated that the minutes from years ago are being read to
determine potential recourse on the matter.  He added that in a
conversation with Bruce Rademann, Mr. Rademann told him he had given
Keith Rademann $30,000.00 to finish the road.  The matter will be
turned over to Attorney St. Peter for review.  Attorney St. Peter
noted that since the road was not completed to Town standards, the
Town would not have accepted the road.  However, the Town will help
make a case for the residents to hopefully remedy the situation.  Of
importance, is the Town residents as a whole should not have to pay
for the completion of this road.

Permit Issurer/Code Enforcement Officer Jim Supple noted that a letter
has been sent to the owners of Woodland Park concerning some safety
concerns over a fallen tree that damaged some trailers.  He noted that
a complaint was received concerning a barking dog and dog feces not
being properly disposed of.  He also noted that the trailers are in
very tough shape.  The County has also gone to the Park.  Attorney St.
Peter recommended keeping a record of all complaints, letters and
inspections of the site.  He also recommended keeping the County
informed of any concerns.

Chairman Manske noted that Highway 23 from Main St. to Park Ave. will
be closed.

A complaint on engine braking on CTH D was received.  It was noted
this is a County road and Tom Janke needs to be informed of this
complaint.

Fire Chief Craig Sanborn asked if the agreement with the City on
ambulance jurisdiction has been located.  It has not.  Chairman Manske
recommended contacting the County for a copy.

It was decided to go out of order from the agenda and take the Fondy
Sports Complex request next.  The Sports Complex has requested to
amend the Development Agreement to include motorcycles and snowmobiles
in addition to the already permitted ATV’s.  Mike Maly noted that the
Park has been running go karts and ATV’s with no complaints on noise. 
Due to economic concerns, they would like to be able to add motorcycle
runs on the track.  Several neighbors, Steve Strong, Eric Kaufman,
John Scherbl, expressed concern over increased noise and dust.  They
noted that the sheriff has been called several times about noise.
Chairman Manske noted that the complex has been lax in keeping the
dust under control, holding the yearly neighbors meeting and getting
permission before starting new projects. (Especially the selling of
memberships to run motorcycles on the track.)   Ed Schneider stated
that the Complex has been in business for over 30 years ad only
operates during the day over the summer months.  He added that the
Airport and road traffic is noisier than the Complex noise.  He also
noted that noise levels were taken several years ago and were not
above the decibel level limits.  Attorney St. Peter noted the
Development Agreement clearly spells out the requirements for track
use.  Chairman Manske stated that until the request is reviewed by the
Planning Committee he does not feel comfortable acting on the request.
 Motion was made and seconded to turn the matter over to the Planning
Commission for review and recommendations.  Motion carried.

The matter of the newspaper article on the Fondy Sports Complex water
park was discussed.  Of concern was the lack of permits from the Town,
proper licensing, well contamination and noise.  The matter will be
reviewed by the Planning Committee on August 29 at 7:00 pm.

CPA Gib Hietpas presented the Official Town Audit.  He noted that the
audit has a new format due to the removal of the water district as
part of the Town general account.   Debt service for the water utility
has been placed in proprietary funds.  While the Town spent more than
it took in, money set aside for various projects made up the
difference.  Overall, the Town is financially in good shape and
budgets well for major expenses.  He added that the Town received a
clean opinion on its financial statements.

In reference to the Water Utility project, Attorney St. Peter noted
that the easements for the chlorination building have been recorded
and papers are being updated for bidding.  The valve failure issue
will be updated soon.  

Scott Roltgen requested the Emery Lane project be placed on the
September agenda.

It was recommended that a Plan Commission Handbook be purchased for
Town use.

The topic for Stormwater is “Kids can help too.”

Motion was made and seconded to approve an operator’s license for
Amanda Fife contingent on the receipt of proper application.   Motion
carried.

Supervisor Schmitz noted that the Highway discussion was mainly about
Pioneer Road and CTH T projects.  Chairman Manske noted that boundary
discussions are ongoing with the City of Fond du Lac.

Board of Appeals has no meetings planned.  The Planning Commission
will meet on August 29 to discuss the Fondy Sports Park applications,
September 5 to discuss the request of Liz Roy to raise chickens, and
changes to the firearms and fencing ordinances.  A meeting will be
held on September 12 ti discuss farm animals in residential zoning and
a solar energy ordinance.

Clerk Supple reported on the Partisan Primary to be held on August 14,
gave an update on CTH T project and reminded the Board about employee
wages.  Chairman Manske reported a new fire station entry door will be
installed.  The overhead doors were painted.  The tires in the parking
lot will be picked up per a contract with a new company.  Supervisor
Giese reported that the dumpsters by Schmitty’s Oar House were not
properly closed and garbage was blowing throughout the neighborhood. 
Waste Management was called to correct the problem.
