CITIZEN CONCERNS:

Larry Conger asked the purpose of the October 20, 2005 Special Town Board Meeting. Ed explained that it was only to approve the Park Committee to spend the remainder of their funds on a lunch for the volunteers building the shelter at the park. Larry also asked when the stop signs at his subdivision would be installed. Road Supervisor, Rich Buteyn said that he would get them up as soon as he could.

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS

A. Road report—

1. Road Coring on East Lamartine Drive—The coring on East Lamartine Drive is completed. The blacktop on this road is only 4 ½ to 5 inches from the cement. Ed suggested that the board consider adding gravel and milling it to 7 or 8 inches. This would raise the road but the option of grubbing out the cement under the blacktop at a cost of approximately $120, 000 to $150,000 just does not seem justified, when the bad spots in the road due to the cement pushing the blacktop up could be solved for approximately $45,000 to $60,000. This option has been allowed for in the 2006 road budget. The board would like to have a meeting this winter with the residents on this road to see how they feel about it.

2. Road Supervisor’s Annual Review—Ed stated that he had completed Rich’s annual review and he would like to propose a wage increase from $15.00 per hour to $15.50 per hour beginning January 1, 2006. Mike made a motion to approve this wage increase from $15.00 per hour to $15.50 per hour. Frank seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.

Ed noted that Rich is nearly done with the last roadside mowing and the plows are ready for the winter.


B. Property Clean-ups

1. Treptow Property— N6345 Hillcrest Road—This property has been closed out by the County as the CTY found only one unlicensed vehicle on the property. Ed checked out this property and found seven vehicles on the property. Ed will talk to the property owner and give him 30-days to remove the extra-unlicensed vehicles off the property.

2. Former Mastellar Property—N6262 CTH Y—Bids were made at the sale on the courthouse steps but no decisions have been made yet.

None

NEW BUSINESS

This would allow for a municipal tax levy for 2005 payable in 2006 of $320,821. Chairman Montsma explained some of the roadwork being considered for 2006.
