The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a Special Meeting with the Town Board of the Town of Calumet on Tuesday, June 21st, 2011, at 4:30 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall.

1. Call to order. Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 4:31 p.m.
2. Johnsburg Road Reconstruction Project.
Mike Wirtz motioned to accept the minutes of the May 17th meeting, seconded by Clarence Kraus. Motion carried unanimously.
Bruce Peterson reported that their attorney advised that if a roadway is in use for at least 10 years, it is established as a 66' road right-of-way. Mr. Peterson estimates the roadway was established approximately 110 years ago.
Mr. Peterson also contacted Gremmer & Associates. They are willing to do the work on the project. They will perform a site visit in the near future to do survey work, do the design work over the winter and expect to circulate Requests for Proposals in the spring of 2012. As part of the project, Gremmer will compile the project's estimated materials and costs. They will also assist with bid solicitation. Engineering work will be based upon time and materials.
Mr. Peterson spoke to Winnie Fink recently. He believes Mr. Fink understands the reason for the project.
Supervisor Jim Rosenthal arrived at this time.
Gremmer needs to determine the exact location of the right-of-way in order to determine the full possible extent of the project.
The Boards talked about a possible reduction in the speed limit; however, they recognized that they are responsible to provide a safe road for the travelling public, per State guidelines. Compliance and enforcement are another issue.
Friends of the Ledge addressed the Boards regarding the value to the Ledge and groundwater protection. Chairman Peterson agreed to notify the group when Gremmer completes the field survey work.
The Boards discussed ditching and/or tiling the south ditch to Mengel Hill Road. Gremmer will evaluate the options.
Chairman Peterson will contact Taycheedah Supervisor Clarence Kraus when Gremmer has completed a preliminary plan. The next meeting of the group will occur after the preliminary plan is complete.
3. Public Comment. None presented.
4. Adjournment. Jerry Guelig motioned to adjourn the meeting at 4:58 p.m., seconded by Jim Rosenthal. Motion carried unanimously.
