Motion by Clarence Kraus, second by Jim Rosenthal, to approve the Agreement as distributed. Motion carried (5-0).
#2 Discuss the administration of the Zoning Code. Clerk Schneider has handled the administration of the Zoning Code since 1999. Schneider decided to discontinue providing this service, unrelated to her statutory duties as Clerk, effective 1/1/16, due to major time constraints and the low level of compensation for the additional work.

This matter was postponed to the next meeting.

The Resolution encourages the Governor and Legislature to agree upon a solution that includes a responsible level of bonding and adjusts our user fees to adequately and sustainably fund Wisconsin's transportation system.

Ordinance Enforcement:
#1 Noise-W3675 Cty. WH. There is an ongoing complaint pertaining to the sound emitted by the kitchen exhaust fans.
The Town Board formally issued written communication to the owner of The Welsch, enclosing the 2012 test results, references to the probable violations of Section 13-1-121, suggested modifications for noise suppression, and to direct the owner to remediate the violations within 30 days or Town will take enforcement action.
Subsequently, Jason Welsh installed a wooden wall section a few feet away from the building directly in front of the fans.
The complainant reports no difference in the sound since the buffer was installed.
Guelig reported that John Schmidt, WW Electric, performed a site visit. His inspection found a bad bearing and a wobbly belt. Mr. Schmidt suggested the replacement of the pulleys. He believes this will decrease the dBa by 1 to 2 points. He also recommended adding Styrofoam or carpet to the wooden wall.
Guelig further reported that Welsch subsequently added foam to the wooden wall. It is unknown at this time if the fan's bearing and belt have been replaced.
Guelig intends to take decibel readings in the near future.
#2 Nuisance/Unsightly debris-N8114 Glen Street. Wayne & Jerry Steffen, relatives of the owner, were in attendance. They were stunned with the condition of the subject property. They questioned enforcement of the nuisance ordinance. Neil & Chris Wood were also in attendance. They questioned when the accumulation of debris becomes a health hazard. They have been tolerating the situation for 20 years and know that they would take a loss if they were to try to sell their property. They too questioned enforcement. Chairman Guelig will speak to the owner.
#3 Nuisance/weeds/unsightly debris-W4207 Silica Road. Discussion was postponed until such time as the Chairman performs a site visit.
#4 Nuisance/weeds/harboring vermin-W3085 Cody Road. Discussion was postponed until such time as the Chairman performs a site visit.

Public Comments and Questions Pertaining to Town Business:
The Town Board heard comments and questions regarding the cutting of weeds at the Vesper property, a complaint regarding the Gyr fence, the ditch cleaning recently done along Deadwood Point Road, the timing of blacktopping Laurel Lane, and a complaint regarding truck traffic noise on Cty QQ.

Adjournment:
Motion by Jerry Guelig, seconded by Jim Rosenthal, to adjourn the monthly Board meeting at 8:20
p.m. Motion carried (5-0).
