Motion by John Abler, second by Mike Wirtz, to approve the bills as presented (order nos. 456-506). Motion carried (4-0).

Unfinished Business:
#1 Status of repair caused by Edge the Ledge. The promoter and staff violated several rules contained in the Park Use Policy. Pick-up trucks were used in the Park during wet conditions which caused trail damage. It was also noted that it had rained for two days prior to the event yet the promoter did not implement alternative parking. The trail damage was recently repaired at a cost of $1,400. Repairs were never made to the Town Hall lawn damage. To date, the promoter has not reimbursed the Town for the costs to repair the damage. It was noted that a donation of $1,200 was received on September 9th.
#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. A Letter of Credit in the amount of $94,500 has been received. It was noted that the LOC fails to meet the minimum requested by the Town. 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 Staff to obtain a current estimate for the project, including the repairs needed and to provide written notice to the Developer and their bank to increase the amount of the bond to cover all related expenses and re- iterate the developer's responsibility to maintain the existing surface.
b. 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. Mr. Rosenthal was present. He stated that he is waiting for completion of his verbal open records request.


c. 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. A Letter of Credit, in the amount requested, was received in mid September.
d. 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 11/1/2013. 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. The Road Maintenance Supervisor has obtained an updated quote for the project and the needed repairs.

New Business:
#1 Resolution declaring default and invoking the letter of credit regarding incomplete roadwork in Sandy Beach Business Park-R.A.M. Investments, LLC. Motion by John Abler, second by Clarence Kraus declaring R.A.M. Investments, LLC, in default and thereby invoking the Letter of Credit in the amount of $187,500. Motion carried (4-0).
#2 Consideration and possible renewal of Robert Schulman's Kennel License. Location: W4224 Kiekhaefer Parkway. The neighbors were in attendance to voice concerns regarding property values and piece-of-mind due to the incessant dog barking. The Town Constable and the County Sheriff's Dept have been in contact with the owner. Dr. Schulman has four remaining Scottish Terriers. The neighbors are also concerned about adding more dogs.
Dr. Schulman has made modifications to reduce the disruption to the neighbors. He does not plan to add more dogs. Dr. Schulman will research bark collars.
Renewal of Dr. Schulman's Kennel License was postponed to the December meeting.
#3 Review snowmobile trails for upcoming season. Dale Driscoll reported that the trails thru the Town will remain the same as last year; those being Lakeview Road, Silica Road, Mengel Hill Road, Johnsburg Road and Fisherman's Road. The only change planned is a new loop around part of the former Kiekhaefer race track in the Park for a vintage ride; the date is yet to be determined. Dale was advised to verify that the proper signs are being used on the trails travelling on the roads. It was understood that the State changed the rules a couple of years ago.
#4 Status of complaint pertaining to an obstructed watercourse filed by Anthony Kohlman, Jeff Bord and Bill Engel. Chairman Guelig informed the complainants in attendance, per Wis. Stats. 88.90, they are required to provide the Town Board with documented detail regarding the damage they have incurred since 1976.
It was noted that the Town's Ordinance for the Maintenance of Natural and Man-Made Surface Drainage Ways is not enforceable as currently written, per Attorney John St. Peter's opinion. The only recourse for the Board at this time is Wis. Stats. 88.90.
#5 Consideration and possible approval of amendments to the Park Use Policy. The Town Board will meet for a Workshop Meeting on Monday, October 21, at 6:00, to compile possible amendments. Formal action will be taken during their November meeting.
#6 Discuss refuse/recycling service provided by Waste Management. Service has suffered the past four months. Numerous complaints regarding missed pick-up and late pick-up have been received. The Board will meet with Waste Management in the near future to discuss the matter.
#7 Establish the 2014 refuse/recycling rates for residential service during 2014. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by Clarence Kraus, to establish the 2014 rate for refuse at $110, and for recycling at $30, for each residential unit. Motion carried (4-0).
