The meeting was Called to Order at 7:00 p.m. by Pete Winistorfer.  

The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was recited. 

Board Members Present: Pete Winistorfer; Mark Katzenberger; Greg Mueller; Darcy Krenn; Louis Krainz; Lisa Wallis, Treasurer; Jill Wrensch, Clerk  

Members of the Public Present: An attendance list was passed around and is on file in the Clerk’s office. 

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

In Public Comment, Jim Schmidt asked if the Township could recognize the Bell’s for all their years of business and service to the community.  The consensus of the Board was that it was a good idea.  Harry Wallis mentioned doing a memorial bench in Lindsey Park and Jim offered to work with Harry on that.  Eric Nelson said he could engrave a plaque to go on it. 

Constable Bob Reed was not in attendance and there was nothing passed on to report. 

The Planning Commission Report was given by Harry Wallis. There was one permit for a 60x40 pole barn with concrete floor.  Harry gave his annual report for 2018.  There were 10 total permits issued, including several houses, at a total of $1,415. 

The Fire Department Report was given by Jeff Meinders.  The Department just had their elections and Jeff was voted in for chief for another two years.  He went over some changes the state made that increased educational and training requirements.  There was some money left over in the budget, so a few pieces of equipment were purchased. 

An update on Lindsey Park was given.  Greg Mueller asked about the plans for the playground equipment.  Pete Winistorfer said he was waiting to hear back from the company that made the equipment because they may be able to install it. 

The Treasurer’s Report was given by Lisa Wallis.  She’s been busy collecting taxes.  Funds were transferred from the tax account to the general fund in order to make the required settlement payments due this month.  Greg Mueller moved to approve the Treasurer’s Report as given; Darcy Krenn seconded the motion; motion carried.  

In New Business, Pete Winistorfer spoke to Rural Insurance regarding the treasurer bond.  The maximum Rural would cover is $25,000 on the loss of anything for $75 per year. 

Darcy Krenn brought up Cary Rock road. He said that it’s pretty rough on the west side by the last bridge before Eagle Road and wondered if it should be filled in.  He said it should be looked at. 

In Old Business, Pete Winistorfer stopped at Emergency Management regarding the new fire number by the Coulee property.  Contact had been made over a year ago with the prior chair and the fire number has been removed. 

Pete Winistorfer offered an apology regarding the public hearing on the reclamation plan.  He had misunderstood a question and thought someone was asking about what was said in closed session, which he couldn’t comment on. 

In regard to the frac mine, there will be a meeting in the near future with both attorneys and one board member, so that there is not a quorum.  All concerns from the ad hoc committee are on the table and will be addressed. 

Pete Winistorfer remarked that Eric Nelson sent a wonderful photo of the potential end product if the mine would happen and encouraged any other ideas be submitted to the Board. 

The intersection of Eisenhower and Lincoln was cleared.  Andy from the Town of Lincoln is cutting a bunch of overhead trees and brush on Bluff Drive and Highway V. 

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

Adjournment:  Mark Katzenberger moved to adjourn the meeting; Louis Krainz seconded the motion; motion carried.  The meeting was adjourned at 7:50 p.m.


Respectfully submitted, 

Jill Wrensch, Town Clerk
