Ordinance Enforcement:
#1 Noise-W3675 Cty. WH. A neighbor to the Welsch Restaurant & Ale House continues to struggle with the noise emitted by the kitchen exhaust fans. It was reported that the fan system was installed in May of 2011. The neighbor has documented the start and stop times. She noted that during the summer, the fan runs 24 hours a day. She added that she was unaware of the replacement of the exhaust fan motors and has not noticed a difference in the noise.


On September 10, 2012, the Town Board amended the Code of Ordinances, Section 13-1-121, Noise, to reduce the decibel level during the day from 75 dBa to 55 dBa, and during the night from 70 dBa to 50 dBa for residential district. And the commercial district was identified as 60 dBa during the day and 55 dBa at night. Day is defined as 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
On Friday, January 9th, a very calm day, Chairman Guelig recorded the following readings: Location 1, west of The Welsch at the property line, 67 dBa; Location 2, north property line, 64 dBa, Location 3, hill by the former Braun home, 60 dBa; and Location 4, the Nett property by the gazebo on the stone wall, 56 dBa.
Chairman Guelig will speak to Jason Welsch regarding possible remediation options.

Reports:
#1 Implements of Husbandry. Supervisors Abler and Kraus attended an information session. They reported that the Town does not have to issue permits unless the total weight exceeds the State imposed weight limit. Each piece of equipment will need to register with the Town if it exceeds the weight limit. It was unknown if the Board needs to approve each permit application.
#2 East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Projects: sign inventory and drainage study. Fond du Lac County approved and paid for County-wide membership for 2015. In anticipation of membership, the Town requested technical assistance with compiling a traffic sign inventory and a road right-of-way drainage study. Clerk Schneider reported that both requests are included in ECWRP's Work Program for 2015. She noted that 6 "person days" are allocated to the drainage study. The Board will need to decide on desired area(s) of study.
#3 Boundary issues and development protection rights. Supervisor Rosenthal reported on a discussion he had with an official from the Town of Dunn. Since 1997, the Town of Dunn has worked with landowners to purchase permanent development rights and conservation easements. It is a voluntary program on the part of the landowners that is funded by donations, grants and property taxes. So far their Program has been effective in protecting their boundaries from annexation.
#4 Governor's Budget Proposal: County-based property assessment. Clerk Schneider reported that the Governor's recently released biennial budget includes a recommendation of changing the property tax assessment process from a municipality-based system to a county-wide system. The changes would begin in 2016 and be completed by the 2017 property assessment year. Schneider noted the State attempted this change a few years ago. It was unknown why the change was not implemented at that time.

Public Comments and Questions Pertaining to Town Business:
Treasurer Kathy Diederich alleged an oversight on the list of bills. She requested the Board consider approving the refund of the refuse and recycling charges to Virginia Bertram; and to sign the check she issued. The refund will be formally considered during the March meeting.
Bill Gius mentioned the WISSA kiteboarding event on the Lake this week. He advise the use of caution when going out on the Lake.

Adjournment:
Motion by Tim Simon, second by Jim Rosenthal, to adjourn the meeting at 8:08 p.m. Motion carried (5-0).
