Citizen Concerns:
A concern was voiced about wild parsnip growing in the town roadside ditches.

A. Road Report—First cut of mowing is done and 2nd pass has been started. Ditches are full of water. Summer road projects have begun with work on Palmer Road.
a. Grader Update—County looked at the broken grader and reports that if it was their grader they would get rid of it. Too expensive to fix. Mike moved that the Town not fix the grader and sells it to the highest bidder. Frank seconded the motion. Motion carried 2-0. The Town will look into subcontracting the grading and pushing of the snow back when needed.
b. Foss Road Property Line Issues—Frank explained that an email was received from Lisa Vercautera, GIS Technician for County Land Information. There is a problem with ownership and property lines with Foss Road in the township. It appears that at sometime over the years as property got sold and was recorded, part of the legal description got left out. Foss Road is a town road and the town has collected road aides on it for years. Lisa recommends that the Town take this information to the Town Attorney and see about having a Quit Claim Deed from Hidden Valley to the Town of Lamartine drawn up to straighten out this road issue. Mike seconded by Frank moved to take this issue to the Town Attorney and get it cleared up. Motion carried 2-0.
c. Dan Pucker Water Drainage Concerns—Frank reported that Dan Pucker has requested that the Town clean out the ditch by his property. Frank explained the water drainage at this site and had some grades shot. The ASCS will not allow the project. This land is considered a harvestable wetland. The Board will not take on this problem.
* Also under road report Frank wanted to mention that the town garage roof is in bad shape and needs some work. This has been discussed and was budgeted a couple of years ago. Mike moved to advertise for bids for repair of the town garage roof. Frank seconded the motion. Motion carried 2-0.
B. Unlicensed Vehicles / Junk Letters Sent to Town Property Owners—After several phone calls from town residents regarding junk on different properties around the township; Frank and Harold felt it necessary to tour the township. Letters were sent out notifying property owners in violation of the Town and Fond du Lac County Junk Ordinances that they had 30-days to clean up their property.
C. Update & Setting Meeting Date for Farmland Preservation Plan Review—A meeting date of Monday, August 5, 2013 at 6:30 Pm at the LMBMR for the Town Board, Plan Commission, Zoning Admin and Board of Appeals members to meet and go over any errors found in the Towns’ Zoning Ordinance.

A. Resolution: Designation of Public Depository—Frank read the resolution aloud, designating Hometown Bank as the Towns’ Public Depository. Frank moved that the town board adopts the “Resolution Designating Hometown Bank as the Public Depository. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 2-0.

A. Advanced Disposal—Jason Johnson—Garbage & Recycling Contract for the Township—Jason asked to meet with the town board regarding a new contract for town garbage and recycling.
