The Town of Taycheedah Comprehensive Planning Committee met on Thursday, September 20th, 2007, at 6:30 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall. Members present at the meeting were: Ed Braun, Jerry Guelig, Tim Krawczyk, Neal Nett, Rebecca Ries, Brenda Schneider, Joanne Thome, Joe Thome and Mike Wirtz. Also in attendance were approximately 2 residents.

1. Call to order. Chairman Ed Braun called the meeting to order at 6:35 p.m.

2. Approval of minutes. Joanne Thome motioned to approve the minutes of the August 16th meeting, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (9-0). The Committee was informed that due to the length of the chapters that need to be reviewed prior to the next meeting with Jeff Sander, OMNNI, the project schedule has been extended by one month. The next meeting with OMNNI will occur November 15th.
3. Review Draft Chapters:

Chapter 5.0 Transportation.
The revised Chapter 5 is yet to be posted on the website. Therefore, the Committee will not verify the accuracy of the incorporation of revisions.

Recently, OMNNI submitted a bill for payment in full for the project. Jeff Sander explained to Brenda Schneider that the project was being used as a training exercise. This caused the billing of hours for his and his trainee’s time. Mr. Sanders assured Brenda that the Town will not be charged more than the agreed upon fee. The Town Board will withhold the last payment of $2,139.65 as a retainer.
