Public Participation - A resident requested background information regarding the subdivision ordinance the board is currently working on. The board explained that the ordinance currently being created would only affect newly created subdivisions if a subdivision were to be constructed in the future.

The resident also had a complaint regarding the Next Door Bar in Forest Junction. The complaint stated excessive loud music until 1 in the morning and after bar closing from time to time. She stated that the bass music is so loud it vibrates in their house and the tavern leaves the door open which does not help the problem. Parking is also a problem as cars are sticking out into the roadway. The bar has parking provided behind it which is not being used by the patrons. Resident would like a board member to speak with bar owner to resolve these issues because you now have a tavern in the middle of a neighborhood. Supervisor Fischer will talk with Nick Michels, the owner of the tavern.

Fire Chief Weber reported to the board that all new pagers are working well. There should be a Simulcast System in place by October or November of 2017 which will provide a signal to reach to all area towers.

Tory Nett from Collins State Bank in Brillion discussed the benefits of switching to Collins State Bank. Tory also mentioned that since the bank is local and small that they can fix problems and get answers the same day without going through a big corporation. Treasurer Ott had a few questions regarding imaging fees, bounced check fees, etc. Tory will contact Sharon with answers.

MSC by Fischer/Berken to approve East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission’s 2035 Sewer Service Plan for Forest Junction.
