The Town Board is meeting in a Closed Session on Monday, January 7th at 4:30 p.m.  The purpose of the meeting is to go into closed session to discuss matters related to the application for a zoning approval for a nonmetallic mine operation, submitted by Coulee Frac Sand, LLC, some aspects of which give rise to the need for deliberations and negotiations related to competitive or bargaining considerations, and to receive advice from counsel concerning strategy with respect to aspects of the application process that are likely to result in litigation. 

In particular, the Town will consider whether to continue negotiations with Coulee Frac Sand regarding a possible developer’s agreement which may include acceptance of ownership of the proposed mine site by the Town for use as a public park, after mining operations are completed. 

In addition, the Town Board intends to discuss legal strategy with counsel pertaining to Town Board decision options with respect to this application and likely legal challenges to those decisions. 

The Town Board is authorized to go into closed session for these reasons under Wis. Stat. § 19.85 (e) and (g).

 Respectfully, Pete Winistorfer
