MINUTES

The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met on Monday, December 11th, 2006, at 7:00 p.m., at the Town Hall, for the purpose of conducting the December monthly meeting. Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Tim Simon, Mike Wirtz, Jim Bertram and John Abler, Clerk Brenda Schneider and Deputy Treasurer Virginia Schneider.
The Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 7:02 p.m.. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited. Jim Bertram motioned to approve the minutes of the 11/13/06 meeting, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
Committee Reports:
Park & Rec.-The 2006 projects have been completed.
Special Orders:

Presentation:
Mike Immel, Rural Mutual Insurance, gave the following annual review of the Town’s insurance coverage:
• The Business Owners Policy decreased in premium even though the coverage was increased.
• The Town Hall is insured for $294,000. Coverage needs to be increased. Mike Wirtz will research a more adequate value of replacement.
• The contents of the Town Hall, not including vehicles, are insured for $37,000.
• The premiums are quoted with a $250.00 deductible. Premiums would decrease with higher deductibles. Mr. Immel will prepare revised premium quotes with higher deductibles. There is no deductible for glass breakage on vehicles.
• For an increased premium, vehicles can be insured for guaranteed replacement value.
• Beginning Jan. 1st, there will be coverage for deductible reimbursement for collision damage to personal vehicles in the event the vehicle was being used for town business.
• Rural covers all municipal vehicles for liability only in the event Rural was not notified of the purchase of the vehicle.

Unfinished Business:
#1 Discuss wastewater treatment plant capacity currently owned by the Town. The Town owns 420 RUEs of capacity in the treatment plant. Taycheedah Sanitary District #3 is considering purchasing 200 RUEs and Johnsburg Sanitary District is considering buying 20 RUEs. It was brought to the Board’s attention that the Town funded Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1’s initial expenses; as they did for District No. 3 and Johnsburg. However, unlike District No. 3 and Johnsburg, District No. 1 never repaid the Town.
#2 Consideration and possible approval to extend the contract for refuse and recycling removal with Waste Management. The proposed contract does not address bi-weekly recycling pick-up, who will pay for the new recycling carts and does not continue the same bulky waste program. Waste Management will be asked to submit a revised contract.

New Business:
#1 Consideration and possible approval of a Kennel License requested by Jim Feyen. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve Jim Feyen’s Kennel License for 2007, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Consideration and possible action to reduce the Letter of Credit currently held on Windward Estates. The base-coat of asphalt is complete. Jerry Guelig motioned to reduce the Letter of Credit from $392,456.25 to $75,000.00, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#3 Consideration and possible acceptance of Jennie Lee Court and Braun Drive into the Town’s road system. The base-coat and finish-coat of asphalt are complete. The shouldering is also complete. Jerry Guelig motioned to accept Jennie Lee Court and Braun Drive into the Town’s road system, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
#4 Consideration and possible action to reduce the speed limit on the following Town roads:
a. Skylane Drive from Tower Road to Tower Road-25 mph. The average distance between driveways needs to be determined. Action was postponed until the distance information is known.
#5 Discuss adopting an ordinance to regulate the use of jake brakes. A Peebles resident requests prohibiting the use of jake brakes, except in emergency situations, on Hwy. 151 during the night-time hours. The Board needs to research the Town’s authority to regulate jake brakes on a state highway.

#6 Discuss amending the Zoning Ordinance to exempt gazebos as an accessory structure. Consensus was to present gazebos as an exemption to the Plan Commission in the future.
#7 Discuss the renewal of a Franchise Agreement with Charter Cable Partners, LLC. Charter Cable has accepted a six months extension on the agreement. The extended agreement will expire March 31, 2007. Research will be done to determine the best course of action to take on the matter.
