Public Comment:

Road Report—
Culvert Permit Report—No culvert permits were issued this past month.
Road Work Update Per Frank—Frank stated that he assumed the roadwork was done. The seal coating had no excess of stone on the roads and they did a good job of rolling the gravel into the blacktop. Rich is still mowing. Frank spoke with Marchant Excavating and hopefully the culvert work will begin next week. Palmer Road, which is a TRIP project is paved. It appears that the blacktop is not as thick as it should be and the road is bowed. Frank is not sure what happened but has contacted Northeast Asphalt (NEA) and they will take care of the problem. A check has been written for this work and will be offered for approval later at this meeting. Frank feels the town may want to wait to pay NEA until the road is fixed.
Announcement: Conditional Use Permit Hearing (CUP)—to be Held 6:00 PM on Monday, Sept. 8, 2014—Request from Central State Tower to construct a Mobile Communications Tower on Hageman Road.

Board Action—Plan Commission recommendation to grant CUP for Norbert & Sally Giebel Rev Tr. Parcel division—Frank explained that the Town Plan Commission held a public hearing on August 4th to hear a request for a conditional use permit (CUP) from Norbert & Sally Anne Giebel; N6478 Jones Drive, Eldorado, WI, to permit dividing an existing 5.7 acre parcel of land into two parcels consisting of an existing home on the northerly 3 acres and a proposed home on the remaining southerly 2.2 acres. Approximately 0.5 acres of the parcel is in existing road right of way and will be dedicated for that use. This land is currently zoned Intensive Farmland Preservation. The current land use is residential. None of the existing parcel is being used for farm land. The CUP was requested under Section 5.4 of the Zoning Ordinance.

The “libraries” are stocked with books and anyone interested is welcome to take a book and leave another book in exchange.

Board Action—Repair of Town Garage Roof—Frank explained that the roof in the town garage needs to be replaced. Walters who originally built the building 35 or so years ago, looked at it and has submitted a price for repairing it.
