Town Chairman Frank Bartzen called the Special Town Board Meeting to order at 5:30 PM at the Lamartine Municipal Building Meeting Room (LMBMR). Also, present at this meeting were Supervisors Mike Suprenand and Bruce Rhode, Treasurer, Greg Michels and Clerk, Jill Randall.
Frank stated that the purpose of this meeting was to publicly discuss and take board action on the ditch and drainage issue at the Woodley property located at W7744 Forest Avenue Road. The Town has received a formal complaint pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 88.90(2). The complaint is regarding an obstruction due to an improper culvert with in the Town’s right of way on Forest Avenue Road. The complaint was sent to the adjacent property owner whose driveway has the obstructive culvert. The property owner did not remedy the obstruction as requested so by state statute a complaint is being filed with the township. The Board held a viewing of the ditch at Forest Ave Road on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 10:00 AM. This meeting is to discuss the ditch viewing, receive recommendations from the Town Attorney and decided how to proceed.
The Board agrees that the ditch is obstructed at the W7744 Forest Avenue Road driveway. The culvert needs to be lowered. The board needs to decide how they would like to proceed. The town attorney Matt Parmentier has sent a letter to the town detailing the statute. The board may issue a “Remediation Order” to the abutting property owner to remedy the obstruction. If abutting property owner does not complete the remediation as ordered, the board can have the work done. The town can charge these costs against the abutting owners’ property.
Much discussion took place regarding what was fair to all parties involved and how to proceed with this project.
Bruce made a motion to table making a decision on this matter until all parties can be contacted to meet to discuss this ditching project with the Town Attorney, Ed Woodley and Larry Conger. A letter will be sent to both Mr. Woodley and Mr. Conger informing them of the meeting date and that their presence at this meeting is strongly encouraged as decisions may be made that will affect them financially. Three meeting dates will be proposed and all parties as referenced above will be contacted so the best meeting date can be decided. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.
With no further business to discuss a motion was made by Bruce and seconded by Frank to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried 3-0. The meeting adjourned at 6:50 PM.
