#1 Consideration and possible action pertaining to Fire Protection contracts.
a. Calumet Fire Dept. contract renewal. The Fire Dept. wants to meet with the Town Board. Chairman Guelig will coordinate a meeting date.
b. Calumet Fire Dept. request to cost-share in temporary road to be used, if needed, during Hwy. 151 reconstruction. The bridge between Pipe and the Town of Taycheedah will be out for an estimated 15 days. Mt. Calvary Fire Dept. will be asked to provide assistance during this time. No action was taken on the Department’s request that the Town pay half of the estimated $6,000 cost of building the temporary road. The Town will consult with the contractor during the upcoming pre-construction meeting.
c. Mt. Calvary Fire Dept. contract renewal. A tentative meeting date with the Town Board is June 15th, at 7:00 p.m.
#2 Discuss Cheedah Meadows drainage. Lynn Mathias, Fond du Lac County Land & Water Conservation Department, conducted a site visit. Mr. Mathias determined that pond is silted in to the point of functioning only as a ditch. It needs to be cleaned out. Chris Solberg reportedly is in the process of obtaining bids for the work.
#3 Discuss drainage issues at Ashberry Avenue. Lynn Mathias, Fond du Lac County Land & Water Conservation Department, conducted a site visit. Mr. Mathias is compiling a list of options. Chairman Guelig reported that he hopes to divert the water draining from Spies pond via a ditch behind the houses on the east side of the road; which would then flow into the Deadwood Point Road ditch, then into Fett’s Pond. Some residents in attendance objected to adding more surface water in the ditches between Spies’ Pond and

Fett’s Pond. Guelig announced that there will be a special meeting with Lynn Mathias and the neighbors before any work is done.
#4 Consideration and possible approval of the Town of Taycheedah Comprehensive Plan, as recommended by the Comprehensive Planning Committee. The Comprehensive Planning Committee approved the Resolution recommending the Town Board adopt the Comprehensive Plan at their April 30th meeting. Based upon Chairman Guelig’s recommendation, John Abler moved to accept the Resolution from the Comprehensive Planning Committee and approve the Comprehensive Plan as submitted, with an effective date of January 1, 2010, seconded by Jim Rosenthal. Motion carried (4-0-1 absent).
#1 Consideration and possible action regarding the rezone request submitted by Lindsey Bovinet and Susan Fiebig for property located at W4099 Kiekhaefer Parkway from Single-Family Residential without Public Sewer (R-2) to Business without Public Sewer (B-2). Bovinet and Fiebig have withdrawn their rezone request.
#2 Consideration and possible authorization to Jef Burg for the moving of a 20’ x 22’ garage to W2806 Silica Road. Burg has withdrawn his request.
#3 Discuss fuel suppliers. Currently, fuel is supplied by O’Connor Oil. Garrow Oil is believed to be cheaper per gallon; however, it was unclear what O’Connor’s price per gallon was for a specific day. Garrow would supply a new tank, pump, and other related equipment at no charge. They do not require a contract, or a minimum term. Jerry Guelig motioned to switch to Garrow and request the installation of a 5,000 gallon tank. Motion died for lack of a second. Further research is needed.

James Rosenthal II term expires 2011
Gale Burg term expires 2010

Tom Friess term expires 2010
