Approval of Town bills:
Tim Simon motioned to approve the bills as presented (order nos. 1-45), seconded by Jim Rosenthal. Motion carried (5-0).
#1 Consideration and possible approval of a Blasting Permit submitted by Evenson Construction Co. for quarry operation during 2011. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve the Permit as presented, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Consideration and possible approval of a request submitted by the Race the Lake organization to conduct a bike race in Kiekhaefer Park on August 20th, 2011. Dave Hornung, representing Team Fond du Lac/Race the Lake, and Gloria West, representing Mid-West Sport Events, briefed the Board on the race event. Jim Rosenthal motioned to approve the request, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#3 Discuss private property drainage issues requested by Anthony Kohlman. In June, 2008, Tony Kohlman and four other impacted landowners presented a written request to Jack Koenigs regarding the need to clean his ditch in order for upstream lands to drain properly. A copy of the request was provided to the Town Board. The ditch has yet to be cleaned.
On January 6, 2011, Tony Kohlman completed and submitted to the Town a Drainage Evaluation Form. The ordinance requires a Town Representative perform a field inspection. The inspection cannot take place until after the spring thaw.
In order for the ditch to drain properly, Eugene Birschbach also needs to clean out his ditch.
Mr. Kohlman informed the Board that Lynn Mathias, Fond du Lac County Land & Water Conservation, has inspected the ditch. Mr. Mathias’ opinion is that the ditch is not shut but does need to be cleaned out.
Mr. Kohlman reports that direct contact with Mr. Koenigs and Mr. Birschbach has failed.
Chairman Guelig will contact Mr. Koenigs.
#4 Discuss Johnsburg Road reconstruction project. The reconstruction project is a joint effort between the Town of Taycheedah and the Town of Calumet. Each town was awarded a $44,000 matching LRIP grant for the project. The grant program is for 2010-2011.
January 10th, 2011 Town Board 2.
The project is planned from Hwy. 151 to the curve at W3350 Johnsburg Road. The asphalted surface will be increased from 20’ to 22’ with a two foot should on each side.
The project will need basic engineering to determine quantities in preparation of advertising for bids. Calumet retains Gremmer & Associates for engineering services as the need arises.
Calumet Town Chairman Bruce Peterson was in attendance. His goal is to complete the project prior to Northeast Asphalt removing their asphalt plant from the Town of Marshfield by the end of June.
The Town of Calumet needs to resolve the lack of right-of-way issue through the Fink property prior to proceeding with the project.
#5 Discuss awarding citation authority to the Park & Rec Committee members for enforcement of the Town’s park rules. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department lacks jurisdiction to enforce Town of Taycheedah ordinances.
It would be ideal if the Constable were authorized to issue citations.
Chairman Guelig will contact Attorney John St. Peter regarding the matter.
#6 Consideration and possible authorization to order the 2011 John Deere tractor. Board member consensus was to obtain quotes from other dealers.
#7 Appointment to Johnsburg Sanitary District Commission for a term of six years. Letters of interest were received from Ken Schneider and Jolene Meyer. Jim Rosenthal motioned to appoint Ken Schneider, seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
#8 Review sanitary district commissioners’ salaries. The current salaries were established in 2008. Jerry Guelig motioned to sustain the salaries at their current levels, seconded by Tim Simon. Motion carried (5-0).
#9 Certified Survey Maps. A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of Stanley J. Freund creating Lot 1 consisting of 1.84 acres, Lot 2 consisting of 1.57 acres, and Lot 3 consisting of .93 acres, located in the NE ¼ of the NW ¼ of Section 32. Jerry Guelig motioned to approve the CSM, seconded by Clarence Kraus. Motion carried (5-0).
Public Comments and Questions Pertaining to Town Business:
The Board heard comments pertaining to lack of snowmobile access to the Park parking lot due to parked vehicles, and smoking in the shop.
Mike Wirtz announced that he had presented the 2010 $2,000 donation to the Calumet First Responders. The funds will be used to purchase safety equipment, flashlights and helmets. The First Responders wish to thank the Town for their donation.
Bruce Peterson, Calumet Town Chairman, commented that State law does not require the Town accept a low bid if it would not be in the Town’s best interest to do so.
Jim Rosenthal moved to adjourn the meeting at 8:49 p.m., seconded by Jerry Guelig. Motion carried (5-0).
