The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a Special Meeting with the Town Board of the Town of Calumet on Tuesday, May 17th, 2011, at 4:30 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall. Members representing Taycheedah were: Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Mike Wirtz and Clarence Kraus, Clerk Brenda Schneider and Road Maintenance Supervisor Mike Sabel. Absent were: Supervisors Tim Simon and Jim Rosenthal. Members representing Calumet were: Chairman Bruce Peterson, Supervisors Fritz Anhalt and John Bertram, and Road Maintenance Supervisor Don Lisowe.
1. Call to order. Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 4:34 p.m.
2. Johnsburg Road Reconstruction Project.
The letter, dated April 29, 2011, sent to the Town of Taycheedah by Attorney Charles W. Averbeck, representing Winnie and Kathy Fink was reviewed. Clerk Brenda Schneider is in the process of compiling an informational memo to Attorney John St. Peter, Taycheedah's Legal Counsel, to possibly be used in a response to Attorney Averbeck. The letter is in reference to past activity conducted on a sliver of land on the south side of Johnsburg Road. According to the Fond du Lac County Land Information Dept. mapping, Mr. Fink owns the sliver of land; which is located in the Town of Calumet.
John Bertram, former Calumet Assessor, reported that the Fink property was not formally surveyed when Fink purchased it from Thome.
Wally Schaefer purchased the Mengel Farm a few years ago. Mr. Schaefer assumed he owned the land on the south side of Johnsburg Road up to pavement; which would include the sliver of land in question. Mr. Schaefer is willing to have the land surveyed.
The group discussed the need to obtain a dedicated right-of-way, ditching the south side of the road to the lower culvert, the possibility of eliminating the mid-way down culvert or using it as a high-flows bypass and possibly burying a tile in the south ditch.
Calumet has not contacted their attorney regarding the road dedication issue. This issue needs to be resolved before the project can move forward.
The Board members agreed that their goal with this project is to eliminate as many hazards as possible. They also talked about the possibility of installing a guardrail along the north side of the road along the Fink property.
Chairman Peterson informed the Taycheedah Town Board that he would like to develop a Road Maintenance Agreement in the future.
Calumet retains Gremmer & Associates for engineering work. The group's consensus was to authorize Gremmer to begin preliminary work on the project, with the cost to be split 50/50.
Chairman Peterson will contact Calumet's attorney and Gremmer.
The Boards scheduled a meeting for June 21st, 2011, at 4:30 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall.
3. Public Comment. None presented.
4. Adjournment. Jerry Guelig motioned to adjourn the meeting at 5:27 p.m., seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (3-0-2 absent).
