#1 Discuss Fisherman's Cove. On March 9th, 2012, the Town Board approved the Resolution Authorizing Repair of Fisherman's Cove Building under the condition that the owner submits to the Town an Irrevocable Letter of Credit in the minimum amount of 125% of the costs to raze the building, as estimated by the Town. The Resolution defers action by the Town, as authorized by the Court, to raze the Fisherman's Cove for a period of no more than two years from the date of the Resolution. If the owner fails to raze or repair the building, the Town is authorized to draw on the letter of credit.
On April 9th, the Town Board established the amount of the Letter of Credit be a minimum of $28,000.
Horicon Bank submitted a Commitment Letter on behalf of Bryan Perl, Fisherman's Cove, in the amount of $28,000. The delay in submitting the Letter of Credit was caused by a need for guidance from the Town's attorney. It is expected that the Letter of Credit would be in-hand before the end of May.
The Town has yet to receive the Letter of Credit. Steve Leaman, Horicon Bank, provided an emailed status report. Mr. Leaman indicated that Bryan Perl had dissolved the corporation. Mr. Perl needs to re-store the corporation to good-standing with the State before the bank can issue the Letter of Credit.

Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Jerry Guelig, to preliminarily approve the revised Zoning Code, the revised Zoning Map and the revised Farmland Preservation Map, as presented. Motion carried (5-0).

Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Jim Rosenthal, to accept the Proposal submitted by Community Planning and Consulting, LLC. Motion carried (5-0).
#3 Discuss applicability of the Park Use Policy. As stated in the Park Use Policy: It is the intent of the Town Board of the Town of Taycheedah ("Town") to require all individuals wishing to utilize any of the Town of Taycheedah parks for organized gatherings/events to abide by specific requirements. The consensus of the Board was for the Plan to be applicable to Kiekhaefer Park and the Scenic Overlook. A formal amendment of the Plan will be considered at the August meeting.

Motion carried (4-0). Abstention: Jim Rosenthal.
