Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 7:07 pm. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited. Jim Bertram motioned to approve the minutes of the 1/14/08, 1/21/08, 1/24/08 and 1/28/08 meetings, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
Committee Reports:
Park & Rec. Committee met on January 16th. The Committee discussed 2008 projects and Leadership Fond du Lac’s history project.

Road Maintenance Supervisor Report:
• Excessive amount of time spent snowplowing.
• Repaired and maintained snowplowing equipment.
• The grader repairs are complete and the salt shed is full. The Town will not be able to buy any more salt until fall.
• The snowblower has been used at several key locations.

Unfinished Business:
#1 Consideration and possible appointment to the Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 Commission to complete Dan Deuster’s unexpired term. The Chairman was provided a copy of a guide to “Lake Management Law”. The guide references Wis. Stats. 33.28(7), which in part states, the chairperson of the board shall appoint a person to fill the remainder of the unexpired term, subject to approval by a majority vote of the board. It was clarified that the guide refers to lake management district commissions not sanitary district commissions. Therefore, the statute referenced does not apply.
After a brief discussion of the timing of the appointment, John Abler motioned to appoint Sigmund Tomkalski to the Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 Commission to complete the unexpired term of Dan Deuster, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (4-1). Nay-Jerry Guelig.
#2 Discuss the Golf Course Drive drainage between Winnebago Drive and Hwy. 151. JE Arthur has submitted a proposal of $2,000-2,500.00 to evaluate the problem, compile options and recommend resolution.
Chuck Schneider has obtained a copy of the elevation plans from the DOT. It is unknown if the plans are the original or revised elevations. Mike Sabel met with a DOT representative in 2007. He was unaware of the volume of surface water from east of the bypass funneling down Golf Course Drive.
The Board discussed possible options.
Chairman Guelig will contact the Fond du Lac County Highway Department and the DOT to discuss the Winnebago Drive elevations and request assistance.
#3 Consideration and possible action against Perl’s Country Inn for interior remodeling without the proper permits. A letter, dated 1/10/08, was sent to Mr. Perl. The letter requests copies of documentation pertaining to Wisconsin Commercial Building Code requirements. Mr. Perl has not responded to the letter. Chairman Guelig will contact Mr. Perl to determine his intentions.

New Business: _________
#1 Consideration and possible acceptance of a Memorandum of Understanding submitted by Guardian Pipeline for the road crossing at Ledge Road, Tower, Road, Cody Road, Konen Road and Silica Road. The road bond Guardian has offered is for one year. Mike Wirtz contacted Tom Davis, Right-of-Way Manager for Guardian. Supervisor Wirtz was informed that the Town can request a 3-year bond. Mike Wirtz motioned to accept the Memorandum of Understanding with the stipulation that the Town receives a $10,000/3-year bond for each of the five road crossings, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).

Monthly Meeting

#2 Consideration and possible acceptance of a proposal submitted by REC Engineering for mapping requirements under the Stormwater Permit issued by the DNR. Jim Bertram motioned to accept the proposal submitted by REC Engineering, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
#3 Consideration and possible action to not renew the Fire Protection Contract with Calumet Volunteer Fire Dept. as of 1/1/09 and to authorize written notification of such action to the Fire Dept. and the Town of Calumet. Mike Wirtz motioned to not renew the Contract in its current form, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
#4 Consideration and possible action to not renew the Fire Protection Contract with Mt. Calvary Volunteer Fire Dept. as of 1/1/09 and to authorize written notification of such action to the Fire Dept. John Abler motioned to not renew the Contract in its current form, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
#5 Discuss the various options of providing fire protection; including but not limited to renegotiation of existing contracts. Mt. Calvary intends to submit a draft budget and other possible methods of cost-sharing by March 1st.
#6 Consideration and possible approval of a request from Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 for the installation of a secure mailbox. Karen Schwengels, Acting President of Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1, has obtained approval from the Fond du Lac Post Master to install a second mailbox at the Town Hall. The two mailboxes would use the same street address. However, each would have to have a designation such as Suite A and Suite B. TSD#1 would absorb the cost to purchase and install the second mailbox. Jim Bertram motioned to allow TSD#1 to install the second mailbox and use the Town’s mailbox until weather permits installation, seconded by Tim Simon. Mr. Bertram and Mr. Simon rescinded their motion/second after a brief discussion regarding confusion by the public and the post office potentially causing delays in the Town receiving their mail. Jim Bertram motioned to allow TSD#1 the use of the Town’s address and the Town’s mailbox, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
#7 Consideration and possible acceptance of a Letter of Understanding submitted by GM Hietpas, CPA, for accounting services during calendar year 2008 The Letter of Understanding was reviewed and revised to reflect the services performed by GM Hietpas. John Abler motioned to accept the Letter of Understanding as amended by the Town Treasurer, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
#8 Consideration and possible acceptance of a proposal to donate a park to the Town. A former St. Peter resident proposed to purchase and donate to the Town the lot at the corner of Hillside Drive and CTH QQ. He would also contribute $15,000 toward the purchase of playground equipment. The donation would have the following stipulations:
1) The park is to be named after the donor’s parents.
2) The $15,000 donations for equipment must be used on the donated property and not elsewhere.
3) Should the Town or its successor (in the event St Peter ever incorporated) choose at any point not to maintain the park, the property and all improvements would revert to the ownership of a foundation controlled by the donor’s family.
The Board was very interested in accepting the offer; however, they will contact the adjoining neighbors prior to accepting the offer.
#9 Discuss reducing the speed limit on McCabe Road (citizen request). The current speed limit is 40 mph; which was established in the early 1990s. The file contains no basis for the reduction to 40 mph. Mike Sabel will determine the distance to driveway ratio.
#10 Certified Survey Maps. A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of Neal Nett; creating Lot 1, consisting of 1/2 acre in the NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 28. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve the CSM, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of Harold G. and Elaine W. Lefeber; creating Lot 1, consisting of 1.7 acres in the NE 1/4 of the SE 1/4 of Section 4. Mike Wirtz motioned to approve the CSM, seconded by Jerry Guelig. Motion carried (5-0).
#11 Consideration and possible approval of the purchase of an 8 ft. industrial snowblower for $1,750.00.

John Abler motioned to purchase the 8 ft. industrial snowblower for $1,750.00, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (3-0). Nay- Jerry Guelig and Tim Simon.
