Town Board Meeting Minutes
Dated: August 8, 2005
With all notices having been properly posted, Ed Montsma, Chairman called the August board meeting to order at the Lamartine Municipal Building Meeting Room at 7:30 Pm. Supervisors Mike Suprenand and Frank Bartzen were also in attendance at this meeting.
Ed led the Pledge of Allegiance.
Ed called for any corrections or additions in the July Town Board Meeting minutes. Frank made a motion to approve the July minutes as presented. Mike seconded this motion. Motion carried 3-0.
Ed asked Greg to read the July Treasurer’s report. Greg read the Treasurer’s report aloud, noting that the July State School Tax Credit was received and would be paid back out to the County soon. The ending balance as of 7-31-05 was $515,193.06. Mike seconded by Frank moved to approve the treasurer’s report. Motion carried 3-0.
Mark Hintz reported that his subdivision road “Hawkview Circle” is blacktopped and will be shouldered soon and he wondered when the Town would be taking it over. The Board asked him to call Ed when the shouldering is done and they will inspect it and discuss taking it over at the September Board Meeting.
Dale Hansen—reported that he was starting a Neighborhood Watch Program around the Randallwood Lane area, which would encompass Randallwood Lane, Thomaswood Trail and the north side of CTH Y, which abuts up to the backyards of the residents on the south side of Randallwood Lane. A number of the area residents had met with Officer Sandy Foote and got the details about the Neighborhood Watch Program. The County will supply the “Neighborhood Watch Program” sign and told him that the Town would probably supply the post for the sign. The Board will discuss this issue at the Sept. Board Meeting.
Dale also asked if the Board would consider placing a ‘NO OUTLET” sign on Randallwood Lane as there is a lot of traffic trying to get to the new subdivision on the other end of Thomaswood Trail from Randallwood Lane which is a dead end. The Board will discuss this issue also at the September Board Meeting.
REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS
A. Road report—
1. Shouldering the mile of new road on Forest Ave Road—Rich has already begun shouldering on this road.
2. Town Summer Road Construction Projects—Ed reported that the mile of Forest Ave Road that was recently redone was slightly moved over (about 1 to 2 feet) from where the road was originally. Forest Ave Road once completed the town will pay the bill, then submit it to the county for a $23,000 payment. Scott Construction will be seal coating in the next couple of weeks. The Town will call Scott Construction and have them breakdown each road individually. The Chairman of Springvale contacted the Town regarding sharing the cost of roadwork to be done on Towne Road. The Town will place a temporary sign on Thomaswood Trail (by Hillcrest Road) stating that No Truck Traffic is allowed on this end of Thomaswood Trail. This is in an effort to protect the paved part of Thomaswood Trail from heavy truck traffic during the construction of homes in the new subdivision.
B. Property Clean-ups
1. Treptow Property— N6345 Hillcrest Road—This property remains in Corporation Council. No further information is available at this time.
2. Former Masteller Property—N6998 CTH I—Mike stated that he got nowhere when he contacted the financial institute that is in charge of this property. Frank will contact the sheriff dept. to see what he can find out.
C. Update on the Conger Variance request —Greg explained that Larry Conger had requested a variance in the size of the vision corners at the intersection of Treptow Lane and Forest Ave Road. The required vision triangle as stated in the Town Zoning Ordinance is 500-feet by 180-feet. The Board of Appeals voted to grant a variance in the vision triangle at the above referenced intersection to measure 300-feet by 75-feet. Greg also noted that the Board noticed when visiting the site to view the vision triangle that there is some brush that needs to be cleaned out.
D. EMSAC Meeting Update—The EMSAC committee has tentatively planned a meeting for August 17th.
A. Dean Birschbach Certified Survey Map (CSM)—Surveyor David Jacobs presented a CSM for the Birschbach property. He explained that the there was a change in one of the lines at Birschbach’s request in the previous CSM that the Town had signed, therefore the Town would need to sign the new CSM. Frank made a motion to approve & sign the Birschbach CSM. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.
B. Plat for Conger’s Hickory Heights subdivision addition. David Jacobs presented the Plat. Mike made a motion that the Board accepts the plat for Hickory Heights addition. Frank seconded the motion. The motion carried 3-0.
C. Speed Limit Signs on the Town Sub-division roads—Ed reported that at a recent WI Towns Association Meeting he spoke with Attorney Harnish regarding the Town lowering and posting a speed limit of 25 mph on all sub division roads in the Town. The attorney informed him that the Town couldn’t lower the speed limit to 25 mph without petitioning for this speed limit. He explained that the speed could be easily lowered to 45 mph or even 35 mph, but according to state statue 349.11 more research would have to be done before the Town could post these roads at 25 mph. Ed stated that at the last meeting when the board voted to lower the speed limit to 25 mph on these roads it was not properly done. Frank made a motion to rescind the motion from the last board meeting to reduce the speed limit to 25 mph until the proper procedure to do this is known and then it will be discussed at the September Board Meeting. Mike seconded this motion. Motion carried
3-0. Discussion then took place regarding the speed limit to be placed on the new frontage roads, Haberkorn Drive and Honold Road. Both of these roads will have a speed limit of 45 mph. The Board will consider placing “NO OUTLET” signs on some of these roads.
D. Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Relating to the Statewide Voter Registration —The Clerk explained that this MOU was an understanding with the County that the Town would pay a fee of $125.00 to County to maintain the data within the Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS). Frank made a motion seconded by Mike to accept the MOU. Motion carried 3-0.
E. Braford’s complaints of water problems on Thomaswood Trail—Discussion took place regarding this complaint of water. The Board has looked at the land and feels that possibly some ditch work needs to be done. Brafords may also need to replace the culvert in their driveway. Frank made a motion to get estimates from Excel Engineer and Fond du Lac County for the cost of engineering and estimates for the cost of the project to take care of the storm water problem on Thomaswood Trail by the Braford/Towne property, so the project can be budgeted for next year. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.
MONTHLY CHECKS AND VOUCHERS
The Clerk presented monthly checks and vouchers. Frank made a motion to pay the monthly vouchers as presented. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.
With no more business to discuss Ed made a motion seconded by Mike to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried 3-0.
