Citizen Concerns:
Ed Haney reminded the board that they may want to consider putting some money in the upcoming budget for the cul-de-sac on Fenner Road.

A. Road Report—Frank announced that CTH T in the township is closed from Nelson Road to Townline Road for bridge work. CTH T will be closed until approximately mid November. Rich has started mowing. Rich will be working on cold mix patching by culverts that were replaced and some potholes.
B. Update on the Veterans Memorial / Cemetery Committee Meeting held September 26, 2011—Greg reported that the Community Day was very successful. A $1750.00 profit was made; $900.00 will be paid to the fire department and $850.00 for the memorial fund. The committee discussed cemetery stone straightening for this upcoming spring. There will be no committee meeting until possibly March 2012.
C. Budget Workshop—October 20, 2011 at 6:00 Pm at the Lamartine Municipal Bldg Mtg Rm—this meeting is only to get numbers together to create a proposed budget. The Proposed Budget will be presented at the Public Budget Hearing and voted on by the Town Residents for possible adoption at a Special Town Meeting both on November 14, 2011 at 8:00 Pm at the Municipal Building Meeting Room
D. Report on Building Committee Maintenance Projects—Greg reported that part of the NW ceiling in the maintenance building is coming down. Capelle Brothers & Diedrich (Capelle) was here to look at it and is puzzled that it is coming down as that roof was beefed up at the time the new municipal building was attached to help with the snow load. Capelle submitted an estimate of $1390.00 to fix the roof. The work would be done around the last week of October or the first week of November. Advanced Electric has the lights in stock now for the lighting job in the maintenance building. The entire lighting job cannot be completed until after the roof is fixed but, Advanced would like to start by installing the exit lights and some of the lights that are not in the way of the needed roof work. Mike moved seconded by Frank to approve $1390.00 to fix the town maintenance facility roof. Motion carried 3-0.
E. Town Officials attending annual WTA Convention in Green Bay—October 23 – 26, 2011—Frank, Greg and Jill will be attending the WTA Convention this year.

A. Board Action –Adopt Grievance Policy—Mike moved seconded by Bruce to adopt the Town of Lamartine Grievance Procedure with a not to exceed fee of $200.00. Motion carried 3-0.

A. Fire Department presenting 2012 Budget—Board Action—Fire Department President, Stan Dietsch presented the Fire Department 2012 budget. He noted that the total budget was $6000.00 less than the 2011 budget. Last year the department budgeted for new pagers so it was higher. Bruce made a motion that the town accepts the fire departments requested budget of $35,500 for 2012. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0. Fire Chief, Joe Birschbach inquired if the town board intended to continue setting aside funds for a future truck purchase. The Board stated that yes they planned on budgeting money in the upcoming 2012 town budget earmarked for a future fire truck purchase . Joe explained that the fire department had a truck committee in place and they would continue to move forward looking for a truck to buy in 2013 as planned. Joe further explained that the department would be replacing the 1983 Mack truck.
B. Discussion / decision regarding possible creation of an official town map—Frank explained that last week at a meeting to discuss STH 23 improvements he was told that the Town of Lamartine should consider the creation of an official town map. This map would designate possible upgrades the town would make in the future. For example the extension of town roads would be important to map out now so no structures, etc. were built where these future roads would need to be created. This map would only be used as a tool for future planning and not be what was definitely going to be done in the future. After much discussion it was suggested that it be looked into as to the cost of having such a map created. Nothing was decided and Frank stated that this subject was discussed long enough and moved on with the next agenda item.

Approving the monthly vouchers and checks—Bruce moved to approve the vouchers as presented for payment. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.

With no further business to discuss, Bruce seconded by Mike made a motion to adjourn. Motion carried 3-0 and the meeting adjourned at 9:05 Pm.

Respectfully Submitted,
Town of Lamartine
