#1 Consideration and possible approval of the use of Kiekhaefer Park for a vintage snowmobile ride. Darrin Lefeber, representing Holyland Snowflyers, requested permission to use the Kiekhaefer Park for a vintage snowmobile event planned for Saturday, January 30th, 2016. The event will highlight the Kiekhaefer Race Track. Snowmobiles allowed to ride the track will be based upon the current DNR definition of vintage snowmobiles.
Per the outline dispersed by the Club (attached), no trucks/cars will be allowed in the Park. Vehicles with trailers will primarily park in the Town Hall parking lot, and Scenic Overlook. Vehicles will park along Kiekhaefer Parkway. Vehicles without trailers will park in the Park parking lot. A portion of the Park parking lot will remain open to regular park users.
A food tent and show area will be established; the location will be dependent upon the amount of ground cover. They will be located west of the track or behind the entrance gate. Vintage snowmobiles riding the track will also be dependent upon snow conditions.
If the request is approved, the Club would remove trees and brush in the track area and the proposed food tent/show area. Rough-cutting of the grasses to and around these areas would be done a couple of times over the summer/fall. They may also install fence posts for fencing/barrier that would be used to keep unauthorized snowmobiles off the track the rest of the snowmobile season. The preparation work would require the use of a tractor and ATV/UTV.
Set-up would begin approximately a week before the show. Set-up and tear-down activities will require the use of a transport vehicle. At least one Club member will be present during all set-up and tear-down activities. The Town will be notified when these activities occur.
The Club will incur all the costs of clearing, grooming, signage, temporary generators for additional lighting and power, and possibly a temporary light on the north light pole by the sledding area.
The event is planned for 10 am to 4 pm. The track will be monitored at all times by at least two persons. Riders will be required to maintain reasonable and safe speeds; it will not be a racing event. Violators will be asked to leave the event. The event will include a snowmobile parade, a bonfire, concessions, raffles and games.
The Club will remove trash from the event within 24-hours and all tear-down will be completed within one week after the event. Fence posts not interfering with other park activities will be left up for future use.
The Club is hoping for at least 100 participants.
Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by John Abler, to approve the use of Kiekhaefer Park for the event on January 30th, 2016, coordinated and promoted by the Holyland Snowflyers Snowmobile Club, under the following conditions:
• Event to be conducted, including preparations, set-up and tear-down, as presented by the Club;
• Certificate of Insurance, meeting or exceeding the minimum coverage required by ordinance, shall be submitted to the Town;
• Emergency Medical Service to be onsite, if required by ordinance;
• Parking allowed along only one side of Kiekhaefer Parkway;
• Parking to be allowed on the lawn east of the cold-storage building and on the lawn west of the salt shed to the Scenic Overlook entrance; and
• Bon fire in the Park to be allowed only on the day of the event.
Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Discuss the construction of a cul de sac in Sand Hill Ridge. Land was not dedicated at the north end of Sand Hill Drive for a cul de sac. The road was built to end at the property line. The consensus of the Town Board was to not pursue the dedication of additional land nor build a cul de sac.
#3 Certified Survey Maps. Two Certified Survey Maps were submitted on behalf of Cyril & Lucina Klapperich. The first survey creates Lot 1, consisting of 3.664 acres, located in the NE 1/4 of the SW1/4 and the NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 35. The second survey creates Lot 1, consisting of 1.861 acres, located in the NE 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 35. Both parcels are zoned Exclusive Agriculture/Farmland Preservation and are part of a Base Farm Tract #91, consisting of 144.0 acres. Jeffrey Butzke, the surveyor, was in attendance.
Clerk Schneider expressed concern regarding the Farmland Preservation Law as to limitations pertaining to the number of farm residences vs non-farm residences. Schneider advised a review by the Town's consultant. Butzke believed the CSMs were compliant with Farmland Preservation.
Motion by Clarence Kraus, seconded by Tim Simon, to approve the CSMs as presented. Motion carried (3-2). Nay-Abler, Rosenthal.
#4 Board of Appeals appointments. Chairman Guelig re-appointed the following residents to the Board of Appeals:
John Buechel 3-year term term expires 2018
Joe Sabel (1st alternate) 1-year term term expires 2015
Mike Holzman (2nd alternate) 1-year term term expires 2015
#5 Schedule the 2015 Board of Review. The 2015 Board of Review will be conducted on Monday, June 9th, at 6:50 p.m. The Board of Review will meet and adjourn to a yet-to-be-determined date dependent upon completion of the 2015 Assessment Roll.
#6 Schedule a special meeting for road bids. The Town Board will consider awarding the bids for road improvement work during their monthly Board Meeting, to be conducted on June 8th, at 7:00.
#1 Noise-W3675 Cty. WH. The complainant was in attendance. She indicated that there are two large kitchen fans and exhaust fans. The kitchen fans emit substantially more noise than the exhaust fans. She has documented daily the times the fans were turned on and off.
Chairman Guelig reported that the owner turns off the fans at 10:00 p.m. The complainant indicated the fans are rarely off by 10:00 and sometimes they are turned back on even later in the night.
State Code may require the fans be on whenever certain kitchen equipment is being used.
Supervisor Abler offered to perform a site visit in the near future.
#2 Nuisance issues-Glen Street. The owner was in attendance. The Town has been receiving complaints for years. The complaints pertain to trash and recycling material strewn about the property and the lack of lawn maintenance. Chairman Guelig gave the owner two weeks to clean-up the property and to mow the lawn on a consistent basis.
#1 Implements of Husbandry. Supervisor Kraus reported that he had yet to receive any permit applications. Chairman Guelig referenced recent changes to the law. Kraus was unaware of their implications.
Public Comments and Questions Pertaining to Town Business:
None was presented.
Motion by Jerry Guelig, second by Clarence Kraus, to adjourn the meeting at 8:17 p.m. Motion carried (5-0).
