The Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah met for a special business meeting on Thursday, March 29th, 2012, at 5:00 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall. Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors Jim Rosenthal, Mike Wirtz, and Clarence Kraus, Road Maintenance Supervisor Mike Sabel and Clerk Brenda Schneider. Absent was Tim Simon. Also in attendance were Calumet Chairman Bruce Peterson and Supervisors John Bertram and Fritz Anhalt and Road Supervisor Don Lisowe.
Call to order. Chairman Guelig called the meeting to order at 5:07 p.m.
The Town Boards of the Town of Taycheedah and the Town of Calumet will meet to discuss matters relating to the Johnsburg Road reconstruction project. The asphalt estimate for the Town of Taycheedah's .50 miles of road is $92,000 for a 20 foot road and $99,000 for a 22 foot road. The estimates do not include increasing base thickness, shouldering and ditch restoration.
The Town of Taycheedah intends to extend the south wall of the concrete box culvert 6 feet and the north wall 8 feet, for a total of 40 feet, at a cost of $8,269. Bruce Peterson noted that Gremmer planned a 36" replacement of the culvert with either steel ($8,400) or plastic ($7,400).
The south ditch culvert along the Gilgenbach property was discussed; the length of which is unknown. The group estimated a 15-18' culvert may work. The Town of Calumet may work with Gilgenbach on the cost of replacement.
The two towns discussed the 20 foot roadway vs. 22 foot. The Town of Calumet intends to build a 22 foot road. The Town of Taycheedah is contemplating a 20 foot roadway due to the increased costs. Calumet will have the fog-line painted along their sections of the road.
This is a project that was planned to be done three years ago. Taycheedah's estimate for asphalt at the time was $57,000; now it is $99,000. The project must be done this year; and done right.
Bruce Peterson commented that the DNR needs to determine what can be done with the Ledge. The Town of Calumet plans to remove ledge rock to the right-of-way line at a minimum. Peterson claimed the DNR has performed one site visit and then deferred it to another agency. Calumet also intends to build a berm on top of the Ledge to deflect water.
Calumet also plans to shift the roadway 2 feet to the north in the area of the Gilgenbach home.
Calumet will research the possibility of paving/concreting the swale along the south side of the road in the area of the Ledge.
Calumet was instructed to separate the Ledge section on the bid specifications.
Taycheedah alerted Calumet that they are not willing to pay an engineer for inspections during construction.
Adjournment. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Jim Rosenthal, to adjourn the special business meeting at 6:20 pm. Motion carried (4-0). Absent-Simon.
