The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a special meeting on Thursday, January 5th, 2006, at 6:00 p.m., at the Town Hall. Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Tim Simon, Mike Wirtz, John Abler and Jim Bertram and Clerk Brenda Schneider. Also in attendance representing Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3 were President Bill Gius, Commissioner John Rickert and the Districtís Auditor Kathy Diederich.
1. Call to order.. Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 6:05 p.m..
2. Consideration and possible action regarding a petition to detach thirteen parcels located in the McCabe Road/Fineview Road area from Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3. The Town Board conducted a public hearing on the detachment petition on December 7th, 2005. Pursuant to Wis. Stats. 60.71(6), the intent of the Special Meeting was for the Town Board to make their decision on the matter.
Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3 submitted a written recommendation to the Town Board to deny the request based upon the fact that the unsewered area has received a benefit valued at $601,431.59 and will have contributed to the District $188,021.45 with this yearís tax collection.
Chairman Guelig has obtained as estimate of $50.00 per foot to install sewer; $140.00 per foot if there is rock. He would like to see the District add a section of sewer yearly until the entire District is sewered. He estimates the cost to sewer the petition area to be $125,000.00. He added that there are failing systems in Phase II that need to be addressed.
Petition Tom Wehner stated that they were told they would never see sewer. He wants a date when sewer will be extended to his area. He does not see a benefit if he never gets the sewer service.
President Gius commented that no one ever said the sewer will never come to their area. He added that the expenses have been allocated to the sewered and unsewered areas. The unsewered area has benefited and has a debt. He also added that the tax could be eliminated in six years; however, the upgrade to the treatment plant could cause a drastic change.
The petitioners in attendance were informed that in 2006, all on-site septic systems must be inspected. The inspection reports will have be filed with the County.
It was noted that the Districtís system has been operational for only two years and that not all of the homes are connected yet.
Chairman Guelig commented that he is in support of the Commissionís recommendation on the condition that the thirteen properties receive sewer by December. The remainder of the Board believed December was unrealistic.
Kathy Diederich commented that Phase II could be done when the District has enough equity to fund the project. She added that the District currently has a 20 year amortization schedule for debt re-payment.
Jerry Guelig motioned to not support the Commissionís recommendation and to approve the detachment petition unless they can be sewered within two years. Motion died for lack of a second.
John Abler motioned to deny the petition based upon the recommendation of the Commission, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (4-1). Nay-Jerry Guelig.
3. Adjournment. Jerry Guelig motioned to adjourn the special meeting at 6:52 p.m., seconded Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
