MINUTES

The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a special business meeting on Monday, January 21st, 2008, at 7:30 p.m., at the Mt. Calvary Volunteer Fire Department. Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Tim Simon, Mike Wirtz, John Abler and Jim Bertram, Clerk Brenda Schneider and Treasurer Kathy Diederich. Also present were representatives of the Mt. Calvary Volunteer Fire Department, the Towns of Forest, Empire and Marshfield and the Village of Mt. Calvary.

1. Informational Meeting: The Board will meet with representatives of the Mt. Calvary Volunteer Fire Dept., the Village of Mt. Calvary, the Towns of Marshfield, Empire and Forest, to discuss the Fire protection Contracts.
• The Corporation Account is used for the deposit of dues revenue. The money is used for fire protection expenses.
• The Auxiliary Account is used for the deposit of fund-raising revenue. The money is used for food, their banquet and park operating expenses.
• The Town of Calumet intended to establish Calumet Fire Dept.’s rate at $.49 per $1,000 of equalized value of improvements. However, the Calumet Fire Dept. justified a rate of $.53 per $1,000. Historically, the Town of Taycheedah paid the same amount of money to each of the two departments that service the Town.
• All municipalities served by Mt. Calvary Fire Dept. paid $.605 per $1,000; with the exception of the Town of Taycheedah.
• The Department intended to charge all municipalities the same rate. However, due to the lateness of the Town of Calumet’s adjustment to the Calumet Fire Dept. rate; Mt. Calvary was unable to adjust their budget for the other entities. If all parties paid $.53 per $1,000; the Department would have needed to make a $12,000 adjustment to their budget.
• The State has notified them that they can not increase their rate by more than 4.38%.
• The Department plans to determine their needed base rate, then project a 3.5% increase per year to see if the projected revenue would meet their anticipated expenses. The Department’s goal is to get away from a per $1,000 rate.
• The Department noted that if any unexpected major expenses appear; they would need to go back to the entities to authorize an increase.
• Past revenues have averaged an annual 3% increase. The budgets have been based upon the expected revenue.
• The Department projects vehicle replacement every five years.
• They owe $225,800 on #305.
• The Department desires 5 year contracts that would establish a base charge plus an annually adjusted increase.
• Fire calls in 2007 totaled 51; excluding mutual aid:
o Empire 8 calls
o Forest 14 calls
o Marshfield 11 calls
o Taycheedah 15 calls
o Mt. Calvary 3 calls
• The Department proposes reformatting the funding mechanism for the 2009 contract.
• The Department is obligated to pay $50,000 annually for the building and utilities. The obligation expires in 2011. The Department needs to know how much Mt. Calvary and Marshfield intends to charge the Department for rent after 2011 before they can complete their projections.
• It was recommended that the Department:
o Meet with Mt. Calvary and Marshfield to negotiate the rent for post 2011.
o Project their anticipated spending for the next five years.
o Research other possible methods of collecting revenue.
o Review each entities equalized value for the prior three years.
• The Department will compile the requested information and disperse by March 1, 2008. The parties will meet with the Department in late March to discuss the compiled information. Each entity will finalize the proposal with their respective municipal officials by the end of May.
January 21st, 2008 Informational/Special Town Board Meeting 2.
