MINUTES

The Park & Rec. Advisory Council met on Wednesday, January 16th, 2008, at 6:30 p.m., at the Town Hall. Present were Chairperson Earl Jewett, John Rickert, Gary Morgen, Lyle Nett, John Abler, Kim Bertram, Ed Schneider and Secretary Brenda Schneider. Absent were Linda Calvey, Bill Holzbach, John Morris and Bob Roehrig.
Chairperson Jewett called the meeting to order at 6:31 p.m... The Council dispensed with the approval of the minutes of the 10/10/07 meeting.
1) Meet with Leadership Fond du Lac to discuss assistance with possible future Park projects. This year’s team would like to assist with a park project. Possible projects are the observation platform or a picnic shelter at the Scenic Overlook. However, the Association of Commerce wants the team to do a project that currently isn’t in the planning stage. The Team proposes an informational kiosk possibly near the observation deck. The kiosk could explain the location, what Park users are seeing and the history of the Park. The Team plans to fund raise for the kiosk and potentially contribute toward the observation platform. John Abler motioned to work cooperatively with the Leadership Fond du Lac Team on the development of a history of the Park, seconded by Ed Schneider. Motion carried.
a) Observation platform. See above. Possible locations: the ski hill or Beer Can Mountain.
b) Parking area-Silica Road. Potential project.
c) Scenic Overlook improvements. Potential projects: A trail link to the Park and clean the grills.
d) Other possible projects. Excavate the former tube chute, install a video camera at the sledding hill shelter and erect a split-rail fence along the property line at the parking lot.
e) 2008 Budget. The 2008 allocation is $5,000.00.
2) Discuss status of 2007 projects:
a) Drainage-railroad bed trail. Work was not initiated. The area was dry most of the year.
b) Erosion control. Work was not initiated. The grader should be used on the lower portion and water bars diversion on the upper portion.
c) Perimeter fencing. Project was completed by a group of volunteers. The fence may need modification pending further information.
d) Information kiosk. Project completed. The Graphic Center is willing to donate color maps for the kiosk. Photos could be posted. An updated trail map will be created by the Committee using GPS.
e) Identification signs-main entrance, other accesses. The sign has been ordered and received. The Committee needs two stone pillars for mounting the sign. The parking lot was expanded with fill from the County and some recycled asphalt.
f) Trails-signs, posts, planning. A new trail for horses and others was created. Eventually, the Committee intends to develop a single-use trail system. Old fencing was removed by the volunteers. And additional trail marking posts were installed.
g) Sledding hill-shelter, excavating, lighting. Lighting on a timer could be installed with mostly donated materials. Gary Morgen will contact Bud Sabel.
h) Cub Scouts-birdhouses. Nothing to report.
3) Review and recommend amendments to the Town of Taycheedah Outdoor Recreation and Open Space Plan. The Plan will be reviewed in detail at a future meeting. The Committee noted a need to list the public lake access lots.
4) Public Comment. None given.
5) Next meeting. The Committee’s next meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 12th, 2008, at 6:30 p.m...
6) Adjournment. Lyle Nett motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:16 p.m., seconded by Ed Schneider. Motion carried.
