Friends of the Ledge Coalition will address the Town’s natural, historical and cultural heritage. The Coalition, led by John Brusoe, addressed the Board. The Coalition’s Mission Statement is that “the Coalition is a grass-roots group working towards preserving the Ledge in Fond du Lac County along with its holdings of natural and cultural heritage. Their organization works within the framework of Wisconsin’s “Smart Growth” Act 9 and seeks to help establish Historic Preservation Commissions with Ledge contingent towns and to protect landowners’ rights in collaboration with conservatory ideals.” Mr. Brusoe offered the services of the Coalition to compile the Town’s Historic & Cultural Resource Inventory and assistance with establishing and serving on the Town’s Historical Preservation Advisory Commission. Both the inventory and the commission are goals in the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. No action was taken by the Board.
#1 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 to 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 instructed during the August 9th, 2010, meeting to return to the September 13th meeting prepared to present their plans for the structure. Messrs Perl and Paul failed to appear at the September and October meetings.
November 8th, 2010 Town Board 2.
The extension of the raze order expired September 10th. Attorney John St. Peter sent a letter (dated 11/1/10) to the owners informing them that they must inform the Board of their decision within 30 days. Supervisor Simon objected to portions of the wording used in the letter. He wanted the letter re-written and re-sent. No action was taken by the Board regarding sending a revised letter.
#1 Reconsider the 2011 refuse/recycling rates to include electronic items. Waste Management has decided to continue accepting electronic waste during the bulky waste pick-up days during 2011 at no additional cost.
#2 Discuss allocating park maintenance to park wages. The Board discussed allocating park maintenance performed by the Road Department to the park budget. No action was taken.
#3 Certified Survey Maps. None were submitted.
#4 Status of the construction of the salt storage building. The building is now complete and loaded with salt. The project came in under budget.
