October 8, 2012 Monthly Meeting

TOWN OF FOND DU LAC
FOND DU LAC COUNTY
MONTHLY MEETING
October 8, 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 with
a name change from Hoffman to Dan Halfman.

Jeremy Thiesfeldt, State Representative, was present to listen to
residents concerns.  He noted that the State is out of session at this
time, and reminded everyone to vote on November 6, 2012.

Since it was not on the agenda, the Kuether/Mikkelsen CSM was
presented.  It was noted that County Planning is recommending rezoning
before approval.  In addition, the Town has concerns on road
dedications, Riverview Court being made a through road, and sewer and
water connections.  The Board recommended turning the CSM over to the
Planning Committee for review and rezoning.

Permit Officer Jim Supple presented his report.  He noted that he had
sent a letter to Dave and Linda Sonnenfeldt concerning ditching in the
right-of-way.  After review, Chairman Manske stated that several
issues exist in this area.  One is a neighbor to neighbor dispute,
second is overall drainage in the area and third is survey stakes
being pulled.  Until the Town takes over the road, this is a neighbor
issue, and the Town should not interfere.

A letter was sent to Dan Halfman, Winnebago Drive, on August 22, 2012.
 He was given 30 days to respond to the complaint concerning
unlicensed vehicles, junk and illegal residence in a camper.  In
September Mr. Halfman called and stated he was unhappy with the
letter.  On October 2, 2012 Jim went to the site and noted that some
clean up had been done.  However, it still did not meet Town
requirements.  Mr. Supple noted that abandoned boats are on the site,
as well as much debris.  Mr. Halfman is also selling several vehicles
for other people.  A second letter dated October 6, 2012 was sent with
an invitation to attend the Monthly Meeting.  There has been no
response.  Even though this may be a non-conforming use, salvage yards
and nuisances are still not permitted.  Attorney St. Peter recommended
setting up a plan of action for Mr. Halfman to aid him in getting rid
of the debris.

Chris Kaempfer from Kaempfer and Associates was present to answer
questions on the Water Utility project.  He presented an update.  In
addition he noted that they are reviewing various options for the
chlorination system to determine the most safe and economical system. 
He also recommended sending the failed gate valve to TPS Consulting
Engineers, LTD of Green Bay for review at a cost of $1500.00. 
Attorney St. Peter recommended this be an attorney work project to
limit access in case of litigation.  The second study was recommended
to ensure a true evaluation.  Supervisor Schmitz was concerned that
other municipalities could reap the benefits of the Town’s research. 
The benefit of having other valves checked before beginning the second
study was discussed.  After review, it was determined that the study
be deferred until more valves can be checked. 

The Village of North Fond du Lac and Town joint Water System Study
agreement was reviewed by Attorney St. Peter and deemed important to
approve.  Motion was made and seconded to approve the joint agreement.
 Motion carried.

Dean Birshbach asked if there were any plans to expand the water
system until the Water Study is completed there are no plans to
expand.  The reason for the study is to determine what route the Town
should take.

No representatives were present from Fondy Sports Park to discuss the
plans for the Water Park.  Clerk Supple presented the recommendations
from the September 19 Planning Committee meeting.  The Planning
Committee recommended denying the application due to the pond being
oversized per permits, the water park not an allowable use in
commercial zoning, health department concerns, questions over the DNR
permit and safety concerns-mixing fishing and swimming in a small
area.  In addition, the well being requested was discussed.  Chris
Kaempfer’s report indicated that the well would need to be cased past
the permeable areas in order to be safe and protect the upper aquifer.
 Due to the variety of concerns and taking into consideration the
Planning Committee report, motion was made and seconded to deny the
Fondy Sports Complex application for a water park per the Planning
Committee recommendations.  Motion carried.

Motion was made and seconded to make the following changes to employee
wages:  Ronald Schmidt increase by $.25 per hour and provide a savings
bond of $1000.00, Jim Supple increase gas allowance by $25.00, Ron
Davis and Rob Giese increase to $18.00 per hour for plowing, increase
Tim Schrage and Jim Supple to $15.50 per hour for plowing and Larry
Kaatz to $14.50 per hour for plowing, Poll Workers to $11.00 per hour
and Chief Inspectors to $13.00 per hour.  No changes were made to the
Planning or Board of Appeals commissioners.  Motion carried.

The Stormwater topic is Ice and Snow Control.

Clerk Supple attended a 3 hour certification class for elections. 
Supervisor Schmitz attended the Airport/Highway Committee meeting
where it was discussed that Morris Street will be open for the
election, work is being done to the old dump site and a gate will be
installed on the Esterbrook Road access to the airport.  Chairman
Manske reported that Tom Janke is recommending the Town purchase fuel
from the County at a cost savings.  “Keys” would be issued to access
the pumps.   Chairman Manske will be attending the Highway 23 meeting
on 10/10/12 at 1:00 pm.  He also attended a meeting concerning the
Intergovernmental boundary agreement.  He also noted he received a
letter form FDLCED with a request to increase the Town’s donation. 
Supervisor Giese and Chairman Manske attended the OSG meeting on
9/19/12 where sewer mapping and phosphorous infiltration was
discussed.  Chairman Manske reported that every Thursday at 2:00 pm a
meeting will be held in the DOT trailer to update the Pioneer Road
project.

There are no Board of Appeals meetings planned.  The Planning
Committee will meet to review changes to the firearms, solar energy
fencing, farm animals in residential zoning and cell towers
ordinances.  It will also meet to review the Robert’s land split and
the Mikkelsen/Kuether CSM.

Clerk Supple reported that the poll workers will attend a class at the
County on either October 25 or 26, the election is November 6 and the
Town Hall will be open from Main Street on Pioneer Road and hopefully
Morris Street will be open also and she has already issued 99 absentee
ballots.
