Public Comment:
Donn Mortier addressed his concern for having to pay for the digging of the ditch on his property that was done by Mike Rabe Trucking on Priepke Rd. The Township informed him in September 2019 that there was issues with his culvert and it needed to be replaced. He feels along with his neighbors Jeff and Gary Marggi that the town should pay for the expense for the ditch digging while they pay for the culvert replacement expense. Frank and Travis will go to the properties in question to see what can be done.

Brain Merkel noted that the roads after this 1st winter weather of the year were not very well taken care of. He addressed his frustrations with the sand/salt mix and that it can be a safety concern with the residents and the fire department. Frank and Travis addressed his concerns and noted the surrounding community roads had issues as well.

Donn Mortier and Greg Michels also brought up the fact that it looks like Waste Management is dumping the garbage and recycling into the same container, not separating them like they should be. Frank has been trying to reach management at Waste Management to discuss the townships concerns and is supposed to receive a call on Wednesday the 16th to address them.

Janet Williams had a Sediment Sampling and Analysis done for 7 Mile Creek and the Sample came back clear of any Sediments from the Wisconsin Lake and Pond Resource, LLC. There will now be a discussion with the DNR in regards to a permit.

Tim and Alyssa Babler questioned the status of the Petition that was filled out by residents in support of an ATU/UTV ordinance. Frank mentioned that per the town lawyer the Petition was not valid due to the fact that it was on the wrong petition. Travis supports the cause and needs a good Ordinance drafted to move forward. This topic will be on the January 2021 Agenda for the meeting on January 11th, 2021
