Unfinished Business:
#1 Consideration and possible approval of the rezone from Residential Estate (R-8) to Conservancy (C-1) of 38.979 acres located in Section 1. The property abuts Seven Hills Road and is south of Blackberry Drive development. The Plan Commission conducted a public hearing on July 9th, 2007. The Plan Commission resolved to recommend the Town Board amend the proposed rezone from Residential Estate (R-8) to Conservancy (C-1) and approve said zoning amendment. After the public hearing, Sam Hendrickson submitted a letter of objection to a zoning change. He believes the Town has failed to present any reason for proposing a change in zoning. The Board discussed the following: zoning doesn’t impact the assessment, the previous owner had the land in a set aside program, if and when the land is removed from the program the assessment will increase, the land is worth half as much if zoned conservancy, Mr. Hendrickson did not object to a zoning change to Conservancy (C-1) at last month’s Plan Commission hearing, potential challenges for future development have been imposed by the owner and future development would required Town, County and State approval. Jerry Guelig motioned to sustain the Residential Estate (R-8) zoning, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Nuisance issues:
• N8114 Glen St.-Consideration and possible approval of the Consent Agreement with Tom Schmitz for the abatement of a nuisance. Mike Wirtz motioned to approve the Consent Agreement, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
• N8616 Lakeview Road. There has been little to no change. Mike Sabel has been in contact with Mr. Caird. He planned to remove the debris a couple of weeks ago. Mr. Sabel will be asked to follow-up with Mr. Caird.
• N8706 Sylvan Bay Road. The Fond du Lac County Code Enforcement Dept. has submitted a letter to the owner regarding the removal of vermin. It is unknown if any action has taken place to date.
• N7594 Sandy Beach Road. Mike Sabel has been in contact with Fr. Ed. He had stated that he would remove the vehicle within a next couple of weeks. The vehicle has not been removed and now there are allegations of rats living in the debris located on the property. Mr. Sabel will be asked to follow-up on the matter.

Monthly Meeting

#2 Discuss the speed limit on Lakeview Road. Sean McGregor, a resident on Lakeview Road, requested further consideration by the Board to reduce the speed limit on Lakeview Road to 35 mph. The average driveway separation does not warrant the reduction. No other studies have been done. Mr. McGregor offered Wis. Stat.346.57(4)(i) as a possible means for reducing the speed limit. It gives the Board the authority to reduce the speed limit to 15 mph on a town road within, contiguous to or adjacent to a public park or recreation area when children are going to or from or are playing within such area. There is an access lane Lakeview Road intended for emergency response vehicles and Silica Road directly abuts a portion of the Park. John Abler motioned to request the County Highway Engineer perform a study of Lakeview Road from Cty. WH to Cty. Q, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#3 Consideration and possible amendment of the Code of Ordinances, Section 6-4-2(d)(2), to clarify driveway access restrictions near intersections. Jim Bertram motioned to amend Section 6-4-2(d)(2) as follows: No driveway shall be closer than twenty-five (25) to the right-f-way lines of an intersection. In the event a right-of-way has not been dedicated, no driveway shall be closer than fifty-eight (58) feet from the intersecting centerlines of the street surface. John Abler seconded the motion. Motion carried (5-0).
#4 Consideration and possible amendment of the Code of Ordinances, Section 6-4-2(e)(1, to allow for the placement of plastic culverts. Tim Simon motioned to amend Section 6-4-2(e)(1), to state that All culverts shall be constructed of galvanized steel, dual-wall plastic or reinforced concrete, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
#5 Consideration and possible approval of a Borrowing Resolution for the purchase of a John Deere tractor with snowplowing equipment. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve the Resolution to borrow $110,000.00 for the purchase of a John Deere tractor, snowplowing equipment and safety equipment, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
#6 Consideration and possible action against Perl’s Country Inn for interior remodeling without a permit. No permit has been issued for interior remodeling. No inspections have been completed. The Board discussed the applicability of the State Building Code and the Town’s liability. Chairman Guelig will contact the owner to request copies of State inspection reports.
#7 Discuss a Capital Purchase Policy. The Board reviewed a draft Capital Purchase Policy. Formal action will be scheduled for next month’s meeting.
#8 Discuss the Code of Ordinances, Section 13-1-140, Accessory Structures. The Permit Issuer recently denied a building permit for a two-story garage to be built at the maximum square footage. The building was planned to have 3-3.5 foot eaves. The ordinance requires buildings with eaves deeper than 2 feet to be proportionately offset from the minimum setbacks. It is the Permit Issuer’s opinion that the ordinance infers that detached accessory structures with eaves deeper than two feet would require a proportionate reduction in the square footage of the building. It is also the Permit Issuer’s opinion that the square footage of the structure could be increased by shifting all or a portion of the sidewall outward; thereby exceeding the maximum square footage allowed on the particular lot. The Board discussed the ordinance and their interpretations at length. The Board consensus was to support the Permit Issuer’s interpretation of the accessory structure ordinance and to research possible revisions to the ordinance.
#9 Certified Survey Maps. None were received.
#10 Approval of Town bills. Mike Wirtz motioned to approve the bills as submitted (order nos. 438-529), seconded by Jerry Guelig. Motion carried (5-0). Treasurer Kathy Diederich reviewed the draft financial statements with the Board.

Public comments and questions pertaining to town business:
None was presented.

Jerry Guelig motioned to adjourn at 9:30 p.m., seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
