Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by John Abler, to approve the bills as presented (order nos. 63-113). Motion carried (5-0).
#1 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, if an increase to the amount of the bond is necessary to cover all related expenses and to re-iterate the developer's responsibility to maintain the existing surface and shoulders until such time as the construction is complete. The Board is awaiting said estimate.
#2 Status and possible action regarding the complaint pertaining to an obstructed watercourse filed by Anthony Kohlman, Jeff Bord and Bill Engel. Chairman Guelig announced that the Town's attorney and the Birschbach's are communicating to identify solutions that would address the problems being experienced by the upstream property owners without pulling the Town into expensive litigation. The Town has fulfilled the extensive open records request submitted by Birschbach's attorney.
#1 Consideration and possible approval of a Blasting Permit for quarry operation, requested by Evenson Construction Company, Inc. It was noted that the Town needs to be added as an additional insured on Evenson's Certificate of Insurance. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Clarence Kraus, to approve the permit as requested. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Consideration and possible approval of 2014 Edge the Ledge Adventure Race, requested by DuTriRun. Jamie Schnurer, DuTriRun, submitted a written request for approval of the 2014 event. DuTriRun indicated they would limit participation to 800, provide a cash deposit of $5,000, provide a $5,000 donation to the Town for park improvements, prohibit parking on the grass, reduce the number of obstacles, only use four-wheelers in the Park, and would not provide alcohol. Motion by John Abler, second by Mike Wirtz, to deny any Edge of the Ledge event during 2014. Motion carried (5-0).
#3 Consideration and possible acceptance of the American Red Cross Shelter Agreement. It was noted that use of the facility by Red Cross as a shelter can be denied if the Town needs the facility as an Emergency Operations Center. Motion by Mike Wirtz, second by John Abler, to approve the Agreement. Motion carried (5-0).
#4 Discuss the status of the Fisherman's Cover, N9176 Hwy. 151. The Deferred Agreement for demolition of the building expires March 12, 2014. The Letter of Credit expires May 4, 2014. No action was taken. The matter will be considered during the March meeting.
#5 Certified Survey Maps. A Certified Survey Map was received on behalf of Bruce Hanson & Carol Pollnac, altering four parcels into two lots. Lot 1, consists of 5.58, and Lot 2 consists of 7.67 acres. The lots are located in the SW 1/4 of the NW 1/4 and the NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 16. Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Tim Simon, to approve the CSM as presented. Motion carried (5-0).
