#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.

Chairman Guelig reported that the DNR has opined that the watercourse in not natural from the Birschbach pond and upstream. The DNR has also informed the Town that there may be an obstruction at the east end of the pond. The DNR will investigate the alleged obstruction. Under the circumstances, the Town Board will delay further action until the DNR completed its' investigation.

#2 Consideration and possible acceptance of a lease for the Fisherman's Road Boat Launch to the Fisherman's Road Fishing Club.
