OCTOBER 8, 2012
TAYCHEEDAH TOWN HALL
Members present were Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors John Abler, Tim Simon and Mike Wirtz, Clerk Brenda Schneider and Treasurer Kathy Diederich. Excused was Supervisor James Rosenthal II. Also present were Assessor Bill Huck, Constable Bill Gius and Road Maintenance Supervisor Mike Sabel.

Motion by John Abler, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the minutes of the 9/10/12 and the 9/17/12 meetings. Motion carried (4-0-1 excused).
Park & Rec Committee: Earl Jewett, Chair of the Park & Rec Committee, reported a workday is planned for October 20th. They plan to work on erecting the new fence and posting trail signs. The Committee is working with the Graphic Center to print maps of the park.
Presentation of an Eagle Scout project at Gladstone Park. It was reported that an Eagle Scout project is planned at the Gladstone Park. Plans include adding two concrete pads with benches and a sign with landscaping. The property was recently surveyed. It was determined that the neighbor's landscaping significantly encroaches the Town's property. The neighbor will be notified that his landscaping will not hinder the current project; however, future projects may require removal of his landscaping.
Mr. Jewett also commended the Board for purchasing the used gator. It has proven to be invaluable for park maintenance.

Approval of Town bills:
Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Tim Simon, to approve the bills as presented (order nos. 504-543).
Motion carried (4-0-1 excused).
#1 Discuss ditch remediation in the Ashberry Avenue/Deadwood Point Road area. Staff had trees and brush removed along the ditch-line across the Fett property. The ditch runs from Deadwood Point Road (east/west) south to Fett's pond. It is unknown at this time if a new culvert will also be needed. The drainage ditch from the pond to Lake Winnebago also needs to be cleaned. This work will require a DNR permit. Staff will complete and submit the application.
#2 Consideration and possible acceptance of a proposal for the conversion of assessment records to electronic format as mandated by the Wisconsin Dept of Revenue. One proposal was received. Bowmar Appraisal, Inc., quoted $26,600. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Jerry Guelig, to accept the proposal submitted by Bowmar. Motion carried (4-0-1 excused).
#3 Discuss development of a right-of-way permit ordinance. Mike Sabel recognizes a need to know who is doing what in the rights-of-way and who to contact if there is a problem with restoration. More information will be presented at the next meeting.
#4 Discuss equipment replacement. The small tractor is getting old. Staff needs something to load salt. There may be a benefit to having a backhoe for multiple purposes. Mike Sabel was directed to research and provide more information.
#1 Consideration and possible approval of a Class B Beer and a Class C Wine Licenses application submitted by CnD Specialties, Inc., dba Eden Grill. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the Class B Beer and Class C Wine licenses as requested. Motion carried (4-0-1 excused).
#2 Consideration and possible approval of a Fire Protection Agreement with the Town of Calumet Volunteer Fire Dept. The three-year agreement indicates no increase in payment for services for 2013, 1% for 2014, and 1% for 2015. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by John Abler, to approve the Agreement as presented. Motion carried (4-0-1 excused).
#3 Annual review of snowmobile trails to be used during the upcoming season. There was no representative from the snowmobile club in attendance. The matter was postponed to the November meeting.
