#1 Discuss Johnsburg Road reconstruction project. Chairman Guelig contacted Chairman Peterson, Town of Calumet. The Town Boards are tentatively planning to meet on May 17th, at 4:30 pm.
#1 Discuss changes to the duties of Town Assessor. Bill Huck, Assessor, explained that the process of fulfilling the duties of an Assessor is changing from paper reporting to computerized documents and electronic filing. For this year, he did receive a paper assessment workbook; which he has delivered to Bowmar. Bowmar will input changes in assessment into the computer software and submit it to County. Mr. Huck expects that the Town will eventually need to purchase a computer and the necessary software. He estimates an initial cost of $8,000-10,000, plus annual software upgrades estimated to be $1,000.
Mr. Huck suggested the Board consider changing from an elected Assessor to an appointed assessment firm.
The Board will investigate the cost of contracted assessing services.
#2 Certified Survey Maps. A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of R.A.M. Investments, LLC, creating Lot 1consisting of .624 acres, Lot 2 consisting of .501 acres and reducing Lot 5 to 1.065 acres, contained within the Sandy Beach Business Park, located in the NE1/4 of Section 31 and the NW1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 32.
