MINUTES

The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met on Monday, March 10th, 2008, at 7:00 p.m., at the Town Hall, for the purpose of conducting the March monthly meeting. Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Tim Simon, Mike Wirtz, Jim Bertram and John Abler, Clerk Brenda Schneider and Treasurer Kathy Diederich.
Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve the minutes of the 2/11/08, 2/20/08 and 2/25/08 meetings, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
Committee Reports:
Park & Rec. Committee will meet on March 12th.

Road Maintenance Supervisor Report:
Report was received and filed.

Unfinished Business:
#1 Discuss the Golf Course Drive drainage between Winnebago Drive and Hwy. 151. Chairman Guelig has been attempting contact with Matt Haefs, DOT, regarding the final grade elevations at Golf Course Drive and CTH K.
Staff has been monitoring the water level of the north retention pond in Windward Estates. A pump has been transferring water from the north retention pond to the south pond for several weeks. Staff will remove the pump by the end of the week due the prediction for warmer weather. The pond will need to fill 3-3.5 feet before water will drain out the 6” holes.
The County has removed debris and ice from the Winnebago Drive ditch.
JE Arthur is working on the study of options and recommended solution.
Emergency Government has sandbags available at the County Highway Dept. garage.
There may be some grant options for stormwater mitigation projects.
#2 Consideration and possible action against Perl’s Country Inn for interior remodeling without the proper permits. Chairman Guelig contacted Mr. Perl. He instructed Mr. Perl that the Town needs a release of liability from him. He further informed him of the need to have inspections completed by the State. Chairman Guelig will follow-up with Mr. Perl.
#3 Discuss the various options of providing fire protection; including but not limited to renegotiation of 2008 contracts. Written notice have been submitted to both fire departments regarding the Town’s action to not renew the contracts, as of January 1, 2009.
Chairman Guelig reported receiving several comments from Mt. Calvary area residents who are upset with the Town’s position.
The Town expected the receipt of a draft 2009 budget from Mt. Calvary Fire Dept. by March 1st. The draft has yet to be received.
#4 Discuss reducing the speed limit on McCabe Road (citizen request). On 5/10/93, the Town Board reduced the speed limit to 40 mph. The basis for this reduction is questionable. The average driveway separation does not qualify for a reduced speed limit. Jerry Guelig motioned to request a traffic study of McCabe Road, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).

New Business: _________
#1 Consideration and possible adoption of an Ordinance Creating Section 1-4-1 of the Municipal Code to Establish the Municipal Court for the Villages of North Fond du Lac, Rosendale, Campbellsport, Brandon, Fairwater, Oakfield, the City of Fond du Lac and the Towns of Ripon, Empire, Taycheedah and Osceola. Jim Bertram moved to adopt the Ordinance, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Consideration and possible acceptance of an Intergovernmental Agreement for North Fond du Lac, to Provide Municipal Court Services to the Villages of Rosendale, Brandon and Fairwater, Oakfield, the City of Fond du Lac, and the Towns of Ripon, Empire, Taycheedah and Osceola. Mike Wirtz moved to accept the Agreement, seconded by John Abler. Motion carried (5-0).

March 10th, 2008 Town Board 2.
Monthly Meeting

#3 Public presentation and Board consideration and approval of the Annual Report under MS4 General Permit No. WI-S050075-1, for Reporting Years 2006 and 2007. The permit regulates stormwater management with the Metropolitan Planning Area. A copy of the Report was available for all attendees. John Abler moved to approve the Annual Report, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
#4 Discuss culvert/driveway permits. The Board discussed developing an ordinance that could address the following issues:
o Size, length and elevation of culverts.
o Inspections made at the time of placement, after grading, and after the lawn is established.
o The permit fee would cover the costs of issuance and inspections.
o The permit could include establishing the placement of driveways and mailboxes.
o The permit could be used to inform the owner about the prohibition of structures, landscaping and trees in the right-of-way.
The Board also discussed how to deal with ditches filled with silt to the point that a culvert must be partially buried in the ditch. The Board will need to seek legal advice on the matter.
John Abler motioned to pursue drafting an ordinance in regards to the placement of driveways, culverts and mailboxes, seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (4-1). Nay-Tim Simon.
#5 Discuss structures in the right-of-way. At a recent Wisconsin Towns Association educational session, it was stressed that towns carry a great deal of liability for allowing structures in the right-of-way. Tree limbs obstructing signs is also a liability. The Town has had enforcement issues in the past. Road staff will develop a list of all non-compliant structures and landscaping located in the town road right-of-ways.
#6 Discuss establishing a turn-around on Sandy Beach Road. The asphalt surface of Sandy Beach Road is located off the center of the right-of-way to the west. The Town Board discussed creating a sufficient graveled area for a turn-around for the school buses and the garbage truck. Road staff will locate the corner stakes. Supervisor Wirtz will contact the neighboring property owners.
#7 Discuss expired Letters of Credit. Letters of Credit submitted by developers typically have one-year expiration. It is uncommon for a subdivision to complete construction, including the second layer of asphalt, prior to the expiration of the Letter of Credit. Attorney St. Peter will be asked for an opinion on the matter.
#8 Certified Survey Maps. None submitted.
#9 Approval of Town bills. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve the bills as submitted (order nos. 129-192), seconded by Jim Bertram. Motion carried (5-0).
Treasurer Kathy Diederich reviewed the Town’s draft financial reports with the Board.

Public comments and questions pertaining to town business:
The sanitary districts are working with Ron Cunzenheim to address the impact of the Winnebago Drive bridge replacement on the force-main sewer. Mr. Cunzenheim is attempting to schedule a meeting with the DOT to discuss possible alterations to their plan. The DOT is not being responsive.
Attorney St. Peter has been directed to draft a wind turbine ordinance.
The Board will discuss establishing a re-sale of salt policy.

Adjournment:
Jerry Guelig motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:55 p.m., seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
