With all notices having been properly posted, Frank Bartzen, Chairman called the January meeting to order at the Lamartine Municipal Building Meeting Room at 7:30 Pm.

Frank called for the December Treasurer’s report. Greg read the report aloud with an ending balance on 12-31-2007 of $1,328,340.81. Mike made a motion to accept the Treasurer’s report as given. Frank seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.

Citizen Concerns:

Larry Conger asked how the new tax collection computer program was working out for Greg. Greg reported that it is working well.

Henry Schneider asked the town board to consider re-writing the building permit issuing criteria so everyone knows when they have to get a building permit. He would like them to clarify if a building permit is needed when doing maintenance type repairs like replacing a window with the same size window etc. Frank will check this out and address it at the February town board meeting.

Harold Birschbach asked how much money has been spent on the town road/driveway research and legalities to see which gravel roads the town can give back to the owners. The board will research this and report it at a later date.


1. Road Report—Frank reported that things are going well. There has been a lot of snow this year and Rich and Leonard are doing a great job.

B. Property Clean up Updates-Tabled until spring—This item will be put back on the agenda in April.

C. Update on Cemetery/Veterans Memorial Committee Meeting 12/13/2007—Greg reported that the committee mailed out over one hundred letters mostly to businesses. $750.00 was received from this effort. The committee has not collected half the money needed to complete the memorial. Everything is going well as far as placement of lighting etc.

D. Update on status of Animal Siting Ordinance—The Town Plan Commission will hold a meeting with Eric from ECWRPC regarding the Animal Siting Ordinance on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 7:00 Pm at the Lamartine Municipal Building Meeting Room. The public is welcome to attend.

E. Update on hiring an agency to help complete the Town’s Smart Growth Plan—Frank stated that the town board needed to decide if they wanted to proceed moving forward on getting someone to do the plan on our own as there is no other municipalities that want to work together on completing the smart growth plan. Frank will get Mike and Bruce copies of the proposals he has from consultants stating how much they would charge the town to complete the plan. Bruce would like to begin the process and have consultants come in and publicly speak about the smart growth plan and how much it will cost to complete one for the town.

F. Update on the Town Gravel Road/Driveways—Frank has been researching the old town minutes regarding how and when the town took over these gravel roads/driveways. He will schedule a meeting with Attorney St. Peter to discuss how the town would like to proceed when St. Peter is back in the office next week.

G. Update on status of the newly drafted Town Sub-Division Ordinance—Frank read a resolution allowed stating that the town board would proceed with the adoption of the newly drafted town subdivision ordinance at the February 11, 2008 town board meeting. The clerk will publish a notice stating such and the ordinance will be available for the public to review at the clerk’s office beginning Monday,

January 21, 2008. Please call the clerk at 920-906-3683 or 920-960-7835 to review a copy of the ordinance.


A. Update on Ladoga Cemetery Association dissolving and the request for the town to take it over—Mike made a motion that Frank speak with Scott VandeBerg to see if he was able to get a group interested in forming a new cemetery association to oversee the cemetery association and that a letter would be sent to VandeBerg summarizing this discussion. If an association is not in place by the next town board meeting (Feb. 11, 2008) the town will take over the cemetery. Bruce seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.


Approving the monthly vouchers and checks—Mike made a motion that the board approves the monthly vouchers. Bruce seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.

With no further business to discuss Bruce seconded by Mike made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried 3-0 and the meeting adjourned at 8:15 Pm.

Respectfully Submitted,

Town of Lamartine
