Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by John Abler, to approve the bills as presented (order nos. 362-415). Motion carried (4-0).

Unfinished Business:
#1 Edge the Ledge. The promoter was not present. The Board noted that the promoter violated several rules contained in the Park Use Policy. They discussed requiring bonding/deposit prior to the event, establishing a participant fee, and establishing a forfeiture in the Park Use Policy. Ledgeland Landscaping submitted a quote of $1,500 to repair the damage to the trails. The quote does not include netting and straw. The best time to re-seed is mid-August to mid-September. There is concern that the promoter lacks the skill, equipment and manpower to do the work. No action was taken.
#2 Discuss road construction projects yet to be completed by the developer.
a. Hawk's Landing. Financial surety requested by written notice in October, 2012, was $103,750. Recent communication from the developer's bank indicates a Letter of Credit in the amount of $94,500 is in process. Also, the Town's legal counsel supports the Town's opinion that the developer is responsible for repairs to the asphalt base and shoulders until such time as the construction is complete and accepted by the Town. The Board directed the Clerk to provide written notice to the developer to increase the amount of the bond to cover all related expenses and re-iterate the developer's responsibility.
b. Raven View Estates. Financial surety requested by written notice in October, 2012, was $93,750. A Letter of Credit, in the amount requested, was received and will expire 11/10/2013. The Board directed the Clerk to notify the developer and the bank to renew the Letter of Credit for another year.

c. Rosenthal Court. Financial surety requested by written notice in October, 2012, was $21,250. It was noted that bonding was never received for this project. The Town completed the work this summer. There is no known resolution with the developer. There has been verbal communication between Mr. Rosenthal and the Chairman. Mr. Rosenthal was present. He stated that he is waiting for completion of his open records request. The Clerk explained the complexity of his request. Mr. Rosenthal verbally changed his request to all records pertaining to Rosenthal Court.
d. Sand Hill Ridge. Financial surety requested by written notice in October, 2012, was $87,500. It was noted that bonding was never received for this project. On 7/8/13, the Town Board took formal action to suspend building permits for new construction until such time as the road construction is complete or financial surety is received. Recent communication from Signature Homes indicates that a Letter of Credit is in process.
e. Sandy Beach Business Park. Financial surety requested by written notice in October, 2012, was $187,500. A Letter of Credit, in the amount requested, was received and will expire 11/19/2013. The Board directed the Clerk to notify the developer and the bank to renew the Letter of Credit for another year. Don & Denise Palkovich, owners of D'Signs Unlimited and I-Deal Auto, expressed a need to have the work completed as soon as possible. The gravel is damaging their asphalt, the stones end up in the ditch and the dust is a problem. They noted that there are three businesses on the road now and another one expected soon. Chairman Guelig will direct the Road Maintenance Supervisor to obtain an updated quote and he will speak to Brent Schumacher.
f. Windward Estates. Financial surety requested by written notice in October, 2012, was $162,500. A Letter of Credit in the amount of $75,000 was received and will expire 12/1/2013. On 7/8/13, the Town Board took formal action to suspend building permits for new construction until such time as the construction is complete or increased financial surety is received. Recent communications with Commerce State Bank indicates a Letter of Credit in the amount requested is in process.

New Business:
#1 Resolution declaring default and invoking Letter of Credit regarding incomplete roadwork in Windward Estates Subdivision. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Jerry Guelig, to postpone the matter to the next meeting. Motion carried (4-0).
#2 Discuss collecting multiple refuse and recycling carts. By unknown circumstances, several residential locations have obtained more than one refuse and one recycling cart. The Town's contract with Waste Management requires them to provide, at no cost to the Town, one refuse and one recycling cart to each residential unit. Seeing multiple carts gives others the impression that anyone can have extra carts. All the recycling carts are the property of Waste Management. Some of the refuse carts may be identified as City of Fond. The consensus of the Board was to support Waste Management's efforts to collect multiple carts beginning in the fall. Addresses of duplexes will be provided.
#3 Discuss speed limit reduction on Lakeview Road from CTH Q to Silica Road. The Board noted that the current speed limit is 45 mph. Motion by Clarence Kraus, second by Mike Wirtz, to leave the speed limit at 45 mph. Motion carried (4-0).
#4 Certified Survey Maps. A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of R.A.M. Investments, LLC, creating Lot 1, consisting of 1.256 acres; and Lot 2, consisting of 0.744 acres; out of the original Lot 6, located in the NE 1/4 of Section 31 and the NW1/4 of the NW 1/4 of Section 32. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by John Abler, to approve the Certified Survey Map as presented. Motion carried (4-0).
A Certified Survey Map was submitted on behalf of David E. Bertram, creating Lot 1, consisting of 0.632 acres, located in the SW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 15. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the Certified Survey Map as presented. Motion carried (4-0).

Ordinance Enforcement:
#1 Discuss action regarding nuisance brush piles on private residential properties. Complaints have been received regarding brush piles on residential properties. Per the Town's ordinance, this activity can promote habitat for vermin. The Board directed the Clerk to send notification letters giving the owners 30 days to remove or burn the brush.



Public Comments and Questions Pertaining to Town Business:
The Board heard comments and questions regarding the status of the ditch cleaning complaint, customers of the Shell station failing to yield to oncoming southbound traffic, the installation of a culvert for a private driveway on Rosenthal Court, and possible nuisance violations at the former Rosenthal Warehouse on CTH WH.

Adjournment:
Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Clarence Kraus, to adjourn the meeting at 8:43 p.m. Motion carried (4-0).
