The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a special business meeting on Monday, December 19th, 2011, at 5:00 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall. Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Clarence Kraus, Jim Rosenthal II and Mike Wirtz and Clerk Brenda Schneider. Excused was Tim Simon. Also in attendance were Calumet Chairman Bruce Peterson and Supervisors John Bertram and Fritz Anhalt and representatives of the Fisherman's Road Fishing Club.
#1 Call to order. Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 5:00 p.m.
#2 Discuss the Johnsburg Road re-construction project. Bruce Peterson reported that the surveying work has been completed and that the engineer is ready to proceed with design work. The approximate cost of the engineering work to date is $2,800. At issue is the status of the right-of- way thru Winnie Fink's property. It is Calumet's intention to mine the Ledge back as far as possible. The group identified three possible alternatives:
1. Straighten the road to the Calumet/Taycheedah boundary line,
2. Reconstruct the road half-way between the current location and the Calumet/Taycheedah line, or
3. Resurface the road in its' current location and add a guardrail along the westbound lane.
Bruce Peterson and the engineer will meet with Winnie Fink to discuss the options.
#3 Discuss dredging the Fisherman's Road Boat Launch.. Representative of the Fisherman's Road Fishing Club informed the Board that the Launch is in need of dredging. It was noted that the last times the harbor was dredged were in 2003 and 1994. The 2003 dredging project was funded significantly by a grant from the DNR. The DNR will not fund dredging projects unless it has been a minimum of 10 years. The Town's 2012 budget does not allocate funds for a dredging project. The Club is willing to pay for some or all of the work up to $3,000. The opening between the breakwaters was the worst this past fall. The Club is interested in pursuing at least a partial dredging. Jim Rosenthal motioned to apply for a dredging permit thru the DNR, seconded by Jerry Guelig. Motion carried (4-0). Prior to the conclusion of the meeting, Ken Steffes returned to inform the Board that he had obtained permission from Melvin Laudolff, Tom Hechimovich and Dave & Dan Bertram for use of their property to dispose of the dredged spoils. This information is needed on the permit application.
#4 Consideration and possible approval of Park Use Policy. A draft policy was reviewed and discussed.
#5 Consideration and possible approval of 2012's Edge the Ledge Adventure Race in Kiekhaefer Park. Approval was postponed pending completion of the Park Use Policy.
#6 Consideration and possible acceptance of a Utility Easement. The draft easement was reviewed. Final revisions will be made after receipt of Attorney St Peter's written comments.
#7 Schedule the January Board Meeting. The January Board Meeting will be conducted on Monday, January 16th.
#8 Public comment. None was presented.
#9 Adjournment. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Clarence Kraus, to adjourn the special business meeting at 6:40 pm. Motion carried (4-0).
