handicap-accessible voting equipment. The Agreement would authorize the Fond du Lac County Clerk to purchase the equipment and software needed for all municipalities in the County. The County Clerk will submit to the State Elections Board for the grant funding of the equipment and software on behalf of the municipalities. Mike Wirtz motioned to accept the Intergovernmental Cooperative Agreement as submitted, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
#4 Consideration and possible approval of a Subdivider’s Agreement for Windward Estates. Attorney St. Peter has not reviewed the document and it is unknown if the City of Fond du Lac has reviewed it. Jerry Guelig motioned to postpone approval of the Agreement until after a response has been made by the City, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#5 Consideration and possible action regarding a nuisance complaint for the use of recreational vehicles in a residential district. Tim Simon has spoken to the property owner. The owner intends to cement the floor of his shed. Once the floor is completed, it is assumed he will return the vehicles and parts inside the building. The owner and his visitors have also been riding four-wheelers on the property, on the public streets and on private near-by property creating excessive noise. The complainants will be advised to contact the Sheriff’s Dept. whenever they have a complaint regarding excessive noise and when they are riding recreational vehicles on public streets and private property. Jerry Guelig motioned to send Mr. Schmitz a letter regarding Section 11-2-4(b), Disorderly Conduct with Motor Vehicle, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#6 Discuss participating in the Lakeside Municipal Court System. Several villages and towns, along with the City of Fond du Lac, have formed the Lakeside Municipal Court System. Court costs are minimal and some of the forfeiture money returns to the municipalities. John Abler will investigate it further and report at the May meeting.
#7 Discuss the Town’s requirement to obtain a Stormwater System Permit from the DNR. The DNR has denied the Town’s petition to be exempt from the permit requirements. If the Town wishes to appeal the DNR decision; the Town must do so within a few days. Estimated cost of an appeal would be $2-4,000 to file and attempt to mediate with the DNR. There would be additional costs for defense and a trial. The consensus of the Board was to not pursue an appeal. As far as the permit, the Town has 90 days to submit a Notice of Intent. The Town will need technical assistance to complete the paperwork. Brenda Schneider will research.
#8 Discuss establishing a policy regarding the reimbursement of deductibles for damage incurred to personal vehicles while performing town duties. Rural Insurance will cover deductibles for personal vehicles damaged while performing town duties upon renewal in January 2007. The Board will wait to see how the Town’s insurance coverage and premium will change.
#9 Discuss the Town’s cost-share in the Luco Road lift station upgrade. The Luco Road lift station needed to be upgraded and enlarged for a total cost of $909,992.32. The cost has been allocated to all of the using sanitary districts and some of the area towns. The Town of Taycheedah share is $22,186.56. It is unknown if the Town will be required to pay the allocation in the near future or if the sanitary district will be required to pay it when they purchase capacity in the shared sewer; as has been the case in the past. It is anticipated that the issue will be addressed at the semi-annual OSG meeting on April 20th.
#10 Consideration and possible action regarding the completion of title search requests. Roger Schneider’s daughter has been completing title searches for Roger over the past year. Roger was paying her for the work. Roger’s daughter has not been paid for the last several weeks. Virginia Schneider is willing to complete them as long as she is compensated for the additional work. Mike Wirtz motioned to increase the fee for title search requests to $20.00 and to pay $15.00 for the work, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
#11 Consideration and possible approval of supplying a computer and printer/copier for the Deputy Treasurer. Roger Schneider owned the computer and printer/copier he used for his work as treasurer. The Town paid Roger rent annually for the use of the computer and printer/copier. The Town purchases the necessary software yearly. Roger’s family does not want to keep the computer. Jerry Guelig motioned to offer Roger’s family $420.00 for the computer and printer/copier, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).

Public comments and questions pertaining to town business:
The Board heard public comments and questions pertaining to the status of the nuisance complaint against the Vesper property, the use of Loehr Street for a detour route when the Cty. W bridge is replaced and having Nettie Jenkins provide NIMS training for all town and sanitary district officials.
Tom Remo, W4437 Golf Course Drive, objects to the Town removing his evergreen trees located within the right-of-way. Mr. Remo thinks the Town should pay to move the trees because he stated he had permission from the Town to plant them in the right-of-way. Due to liability concerns, the Town will remove them; not move them.
The buyer of the Ledge Road/Church Road wants to keep the old garage.

Jerry Guelig motioned to adjourn at 10:05 p.m., seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
