#2 Discuss the condemnation order issued against the structure known as Fisherman’s Cove. On September 10, 2009, the Town Board granted a 12-month extension of the raze order issued for the Fisherman’s Cove. Attorney John St. Peter opined in a letter, dated August 2, 2010, that due to a 2006 change in State law pertaining to the 50% rule applied to non-conforming structures that were destroyed by violent wind, vandalism, fire, flood, ice, snow, mold or infestation; the owner must be allowed to restore the structure to the size and use immediately before damage or destruction and expand it if it is necessary to meet applicable state or federal building requirements. Bryan Perl and Thad Paul were in attendance. Their plans for the structure are still unknown. They indicated that they are still working with the insurance company. The Board requested they make a decision on their plans by the September 13th Board meeting.
#3 Discuss nuisance complaints:
• N8114 Glen Street. Constable Bill Gius made contact with the owner on June 30th. The owner was given two weeks to clean-up the property or the Town will do it at his expense. The owner began working on clean-up within the two week period.
• W4750 Fulton Street. It was believed that there were unlicensed vehicles and tires on the property. A drive-by inspection did not support this claim. However, there were numerous pieces of debris. A letter will be sent to the owner.
• W4176 Jennie Lee Court. The Board had received complaints pertaining to the burning of garbage. Chairman Guelig had contacted the owner. The owner routinely burns yard debris. He was instructed to discontinue the burning of cardboard, paper and plastics.
• W4820 Main Street. The Board received a petition signed by several neighboring property owners. A similar petition was received in 2007. A drive-by inspection revealed debris and one too many detached structures. It was noted that the ordinance does not regulate or prohibit the storage of trailers. A letter will be sent to the owner.
• W3675 Taynette Circle. Surface water from the Sand Hill Ridge pond drains through Rosenthal Court before meandering across private property toward the Taynette Circle area. Jake Schneider’s lot is the lowest point in that area. He was advised to install drainage tile to the ditch. The County may be able to assist him.
• Winnebago Drive/Hwy. 151. Surface water has been diverted under the Hwy 151 bypass. This water formerly sheet drained through the area. The water now collects on the Miller Family lot; a low point in the area. The lot is surrounded by State highways. There is nothing that the Town can do.

The CSM creates Lot 1, consisting of 1.52 acres; and Lot 2, consisting of 1.58 acres, located in the SW ¼ of the NE ¼ of Section 5. Mike Wirtz motioned to approve the amended CSM as submitted, seconded by Clarence Kraus. Motion carried (4-0-1 absent).
