The Minutes of the September 13, 2018 Board Meeting were read. Mark Katzenberger moved to approve the minutes as presented; Greg Mueller seconded the motion; motion carried. 

Pete Winistorfer announced a Public Comment period, but no one in attendance had any comment.  

The Constable’s Report was given by Bob Reed.  He’s had a couple calls.  A calf was out on the road, but Bob was out of town at the town at the time.  He stopped on his way back home and everything was okay.  Another call came about 3 dogs on a property without collars or tags.  They were enclosed in a fenced area and Bob took them.  One hour later, the owner called.    

The Planning Commission Report was given by Harry Wallis.  He issued a permit for a pole shed on Lincoln Ave.  There is also a modular home going in on Starr Road where there has been a garage and septic for years.  Harry mentioned that Aimee Zahradka had done the books for the frac sand permit information and that the zoning commission was submitting payment for her.  

An update on Lindsey Park was given.  Harry Wallis said that the bathrooms would be left open through deer season and that the new playground was on hold until next year due to weather. 

The Fire Department Report was given by Jeff Meinders.  It’s been slow with a few calls.  The Rural Association had a meeting and they went through the budget, which has decreased for next year.  Annual Fire Department wages will be paid next month.  Get Fired up for Safety is this coming Sunday in Marshfield and the trucks will be out for that.  The license plate and title finally came for the new tanker.  

The Treasurer’s Report was given by Lisa Wallis.  The 2019 amount for garbage will be $18.13 and recycling will be $3.13 per household per month.  Mark Katzenberger moved to approve the Treasurer’s Report as given; Darcy Krenn seconded the motion; motion carried.  

In New Business, a date for the budget work session was set for October 22, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.    

A zoning workshop is coming up in Wisconsin Rapids and Greg Mueller, Darcy Krenn and Harry Wallis plan to attend. 

Pete Winistorfer gave an update on the Coulee Frac Sand permit.  There has been a little extension of time because Wood County hasn’t looked at the reclamation plan yet.  Pete wrote a letter for the website and an email blast was sent out regarding the current status.  Coulee has set up an escrow account for the Town’s legal and engineering expenses with a $20,000 deposit to be replenished when it goes below $5,000.  

Falcon Road is done and Pete will submit the paperwork necessary to receive the TRIP funding.  

The Town Hall was repaired.  Priority Construction came in and pulled the wall in and braced it.  Spindler Ceilings did the new suspended ceiling and Brian’s Electrical did the lighting.  All new LEDs were installed with a dimmer switch.  Also, automatic lights were installed in the restrooms and hallway between the Town Hall and Fire Department. 

There was a certified survey map for a property that was passed around.  Harry Wallis looked it over and said it was non-compliant with town zoning.  He took it and will follow up on the matter.  

A maintenance contract was received from Wood County and Pete will sign and return it.  

Paperwork from Jerry Hartle’s attorney was received regarding the possible closure of Progress Lane.  A hearing will need to be held with 30 days’ notice given.   

The Accounts Payable was examined by the Board.  Greg Mueller moved to certify the bills for payment; Mark Katzenberger 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 8:12 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,  

Jill Wrensch, Town Clerk
