A town resident stated that he felt that the Plan Commission or Board of Appeals Members should be required to attend some Town Board meetings or have some concern for the town before they become members on these committees. The Board said that it is not required that the members on these committees attend any meetings, they are appointed by the town chairman or the town board.

Jim Wiley a town resident that lives on Fisher Road introduced himself and asked the board if there was anything that could be done about the speed of the traffic on Fisher Road. The County Sheriffs Dept. had been notified about this problem a while back, but the speeding continues on this road. The board will address this concern in the town newsletter, asking people to please slow down.

Greg asked if the town could try and put the next newsletter out no later than December 15th with a deadline for articles to be turned into the editor by December 1st.


Fischer / Suprenand Rezoning—Plan Commission Member Dean Birschbach reported that the Plan Commission voted 5-0 to recommend that the town board grant the rezoning request to rezone .500 acres of land from Business to Residential. Mike Suprenand stepped down from discussing or voting on this rezoning as this property is owned by his sister. Discussion took place regarding this rezoning request. Greg Michels, Board of Appeals (BOA) Chairman reported that the BOA had recommended to the petitioners that they have an easement between the parties as after the sale of this property the bar mound system would be located on property not owned by the bar.

Frank made a motion to approve this rezoning as recommended by the plan commission. Ed seconded the motion. Ed explained that a YES vote would mean the rezoning would be granted and a NO vote would mean the rezoning would be denied. Let the record show that 2 paper ballots were cast, with the following results; Ed—YES and Frank—YES. The Town Board voted 2-0 to approve the rezoning of this .500 acres of land located at W8139 CTH Y from Business to Residential. The board sited the same reasons for rezoning this property as stated by the Plan Commission. Frank made a motion seconded by Ed to destroy the ballots. Motion carried 2-0.
