MINUTES

The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a workshop meeting on Monday, January 28th, 2008, at 5:00 p.m., at the Town Hall. Members present were Supervisors Tim Simon, Jim Bertram, John Abler and Mike Wirtz and Clerk Brenda Schneider. Chairman Jerry Guelig was absent.

1. Call to order. The meeting began at approximately 5:05 p.m.
2. Discuss possible revisions/corrections to the Code of Ordinances.
 Livestock Siting Ordinance. The Comprehensive Planning Committee recommended the Board research and possibly adopt the Ordinance.
Preliminary research indicates that the Town Board could adopt the State’s Siting Ordinance as published; which would apply to farms with a herd size of 500 animal units or greater. If the Town adopts the Ordinance; the Town would be required to administer and enforce the ordinance. The Town could also adopt a more restrictive version of the Ordinance (less than 500 animal units); however, the Dept. of Ag would need to approve the Ordinance. Again, the Town Board would be required to administer and enforce the Ordinance. Administration would involve contracted professional assistance. A permit fee, not to exceed $1,000.00, can be charged.
There are several existing State and County laws/ordinances that would apply to the facility.
The Board consensus was to not pursue adoption of the Ordinance.
 Wind Turbine Ordinance. The Comprehensive Planning Committee recommended the Board research and possibly adopt the Ordinance.
The Town’s Zoning Ordinance classifies windmills as a Conditional Use in the agricultural districts.
The Towns of Calumet and Marshfield entered into Developer’s Agreements with WE Energies for the construction of wind turbines. The Agreements are believed to be consistent with Taycheedah’s conditional use process.
The Board decided to ask Attorney John St. Peter for an opinion regarding the benefit of adopting the Ordinance. Attorney St. Peter will also be asked for an opinion regarding the adoption of an ordinance applicable to small wind turbines for personal use.
 Accessory Structures. Establish a limit of 60% of the square footage for the second story. Limitation must be met by a reduction in the width of the structure. Define attic and dormer. Maximum square footage of garden sheds will be reduced to 150 feet.
 Roof Slopes and Eaves Dimensions for Dwellings, Accessory Buildings and Garages. Clarify steel siding as “pole shed” siding.
 Yard Modifications. Clarify exceeding the 2 foot eave depth will require reduction in the square footage of accessory buildings if proposed at the maximum square footage
 Definition of Floor Area. Clarify its application to 2-story accessory structures.
3. Adjournment. Mike Wirtz motioned to adjourn at 6:08 p.m., seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (4-0-1 absent).
