#1 Consideration and possible acceptance of the revised Park Use Policy. The Town's attorney opined that the Town is immune from liability for events conducted on Lake Winnebago. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Jim Rosenthal, to approve the Park Use Policy as submitted and to establish a $5,000 bond requirement. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Discuss Johnsburg Road reconstruction project. Bruce Peterson, Town of Calumet Chairman, was in attendance.
The Town has received detailed reconstruction plans. It was never the intention of the Town of Taycheedah to completely reconstruct the entire road to a 22-foot roadway. The Town of Taycheedah only planned to pulverize and repave their .49 mile portion.
The Town Board is also concerned about the degree of engineering work done for the project. The Town agreed to jointly hire Gremmer & Associates to perform preliminary work, such as locating the rights-of way. The Town of Calumet has submitted a bill to Taycheedah for $1,108.50 for Gremmer's work and has been alerted to expect another $6,000 bill.
Gremmer estimates a total estimated project cost of $329,000; which would require $120,000 from the Town of Taycheedah, in addition to the $44,000 grant. The estimate does not include rock removal, culverts or ditching. This project has grown beyond the scope of the Town's budget.
Motion by Clarence Kraus, second by Jerry Guelig, to meet with the Town of Calumet Town Board to discuss the scope of the project. Motion carried (5-0).
#1 Consideration and possible approval of a Class B Liquor/Beer License submitted by Silica Pub, LLC. Bruce Connaher submitted the application in the name of his LLC with the intention of surrendering the license he currently holds as an individual. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the application as submitted, under the condition the applicant surrenders the license he currently holds. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Approval of 2011 WPDES Stormwater Annual Report to the DNR. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Jerry Guelig, to approve the report as submitted and to file it with the DNR. Motion carried (5-0).
March 12, 2012 Town Board 2.
#3 Discuss Fisherman's Cove. Chairman Guelig worked with Attorney John St. Peter to compile a resolution that would defer execution of the raze order for a period of two years under the condition that Fisherman's Cove provide the Town with a irrevocable letter of credit in the minimum amount of 125% of the costs to raze the building. The deferral would require the Fisherman's Cove be razed or repaired within the two year deferral period. The Town may then draw on the letter of credit if Fisherman's Cove is not razed or repaired. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Jerry Guelig, to approve the Resolution Authorizing Repair of Fisherman's Cove Building, upon receipt of the letter of credit. Motion carried (5-0). Chairman Guelig will solicit estimates to raze the building in order to establish the amount of the letter of credit. Bryan Perl will be given two weeks to submit the letter of credit once notified of the amount required.
#4 Certified Survey Maps. A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of Vir-Clar Farms, LLC, creating Lot 1, consisting of 6.723 acres, located in the SW 1/4 of the NW 1/4 of Section 29. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the Certified Survey Map. Motion carried (5-0).
