#3 Certified Survey Maps. None were submitted.
#1 Moving permits:
• W4559 Lake Park Drive-garage moved in without a permit.
• N8732 Sylvan Bay Road-house moved out prior to permit approval.
Both moves were handled by DeVooght House & Building Movers. With the garage move, Mr. DeVooght submitted his certificate of insurance but failed to follow-thru with the remainder of the required documentation. With the house move, Mr. DeVooght submitted all required documents and the fee on November 3rd. He was informed that the Town Board would not approve his permit request until November 14th. By the afternoon of November 5th, the house was moved to the intersection of Hwy. 151 and Sylvan Bay Road. Emergency services had not been informed of the inability to access Sylvan Bay Road via the Sylvan Bay Road/Hwy 151 intersection. Beginning at about 7:00 am, November 6th, the house was moved thru the Town of Taycheedah.
The attorney advised that the Permit Issuer has the authority to issue citations. Chairman Guelig did not ask about the Board's ability to redeem DeVooght's $5,000 bond.
Public Comments and Questions Pertaining to Town Business:
The old orange truck was recently sold on an auction website for $13,100.00.
A couple of attendees made comments in reference to the Lap Road to Seven Hills Road ditch cleaning project. The Board expects a legal opinion regarding the matter in January. The Board intends to invite all affected landowners to an informational meeting on a date yet to be determined.
Randy and Julie Jacobs confronted Supervisor Clarence Kraus in reference to the lack of courtesy and unprofessionalism exhibited by calling the Sheriff's Department to their home the night of November 14th, for the purpose of ordering Mr. Jacobs to move his trucks out of the Town Hall parking lot or face a $160.00 citation. The no overnight parking sign was posted earlier that day. Chairman Guelig apologized to the Jacobs for not alerting them of the revisions to the ordinance. The Jacobs suggested the Board review their ordinance due to the negative implications it could have toward individuals renting the Town Hall for private parties.
Jerry Guelig moved to adjourn the meeting at 8:25 p.m., seconded by Mike Wirtz. Motion carried (5-0).
