Constable Bob Reed wasn’t in attendance, but had told Harry Wallis that there was nothing to report.  

The Planning Commission Report was given by Harry Wallis.  He was contacted about building a pole building where an old one once stood.  A new permit was required since the old one had been torn down 

In a Lindsey Park update, Harry indicated that the toilets were unlocked and lights were on.  There was toilet paper all over, so he locked the bathroom back up and picked up new locks for the restrooms.  The possibility of a memorial for Ray Bell was mentioned.

The Fire Department Report was given by Jeff Meinders.  The Department was reimbursed $600 for the money that had been stolen.  The tanker is here and training is done.  It drives nice and the speed limit is going to be governed at 65 mph.  The Department is cleaning out some older items no longer used or needed, including various cabinets, a desk, air compressor and the old tanker chassis.  Jeff passed around pictures of the items to be sold.  

Dave Cattanach moved put the indicated items up for bid; Greg Mueller seconded the motion; motion carried.  

In other Fire Department news, calls have been quiet with the exception of assisting at a barn fire in Granton.  One new member recently signed on with the Department. 

The Treasurer’s Report was given by Lisa Wallis.  Three CDs were cashed in to pay for the tanker – the Contingency Fund, Contingency Fund #2 and Vehicle Replacement Fund.  Lindsey Park funds were moved into a 90-day CD.  $105,000 was moved into a Road Fund CD that will come due August 31, 2018.

Greg Mueller moved to accept the Treasurer’s Report as given; Dave Cattanach seconded the motion; motion carried.  

In New Business, the financing for the new tanker was discussed.  $50,000 can be financed for 5 years at 3.6% with the first payment due in 2019.  Annual payments will be $10,000.  If stretched out the full 5 years, total interest will be approximately $4,000.  

Dave Cattanach moved to accept the tanker financing as presented; Darcy Krenn seconded the motion; motion carried.  

In Old Business, chip sealing was discussed.  Pete and Darcy had traveled the roads that had already been prepped with wedging.  The Town will have Wood County chip seal one mile and put the other two miles out for bid so a comparison can be made on the quality and price of the work for any future chip sealing.  It was also decided to put out bids for grading road, by the hour.  All bids are to put out for opening at the May meeting.

The Road Tour was rescheduled to May 7, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. due to recent weather conditions.

Cole Pankratz mentioned that the Lincoln Avenue bridge felt a little weird when he drove over it.  The County is going to have an underwater inspection done.  Wood County suggested that the bridge on MacArthur Drive between Eagle Rd and Hwy V immediately have a 10 Ton weight limit put on.

Wood County said they would clean up the corner of Bluff Dr and Hwy B with permission from landowners.  Pete spoke with everyone and all landowners gave their okay and Pete marked it out.  Then, the County said it would be a cost of $4,850, so it was decided to hold off to see if the Town could hire someone for less money.  

The Accounts Payable was examined by the Board.  Mark Katzenberger moved to certify the bills for payment; Dave Cattanach seconded the motion; motion carried.

Adjournment:  Greg Mueller moved to adjourn the meeting; Darcy Krenn seconded the motion; motion carried.  The meeting was adjourned at 9:04 p.m.  

Respectfully submitted,  

Jill Wrensch, Town Clerk
