Public Participation – At the previous meeting a question was asked regarding how many unregistered vehicles a property owner can possess on their property. Chairman Maile contacted Ted Rohloff at Calumet County Zoning and he explained that properties zoned R1 are allowed 0 unregistered vehicles (including snowmobiles) kept on their property, R2 are allowed 1 unregistered vehicle and R3 zoned properties are allowed 3 unregistered vehicles. Ted said that residents can contact him at the courthouse and remain anonymous if they have a complaint for Ted to follow-up on.
Update from Cheri Hieptas on Forest Junction Mobile Home Park. The correct representatives at the headquarters of the mobile home park finally received the letter that was sent to them from the town. Ryan from Asset Development/Home Source One has contacted Cheri and will be meeting with Cheri and Todd Weyenberg, Plant Operator at the utilities, to go over what needs to be improved upon at the park. Cheri will keep the board updated.
Fire Chief Weber updated the board regarding a change in insurance agents. There has been a change in companies at the Insurance Shoppe and they do not carry VFIS insurance. Carl would like to remain with VFIS, which also covers the Dive Team, so a change in agents may be necessary. He would like to stay local, so he will talk with Dan Head from Head Insurance Agency in Sherwood, who carries VFIS, and find out if he would be able to attend our March board meeting to discuss the fire department’s policy and provide a quote.
Also, some of the fire department equipment got oil soaked at the garage fire on Hwy 10. Carl sent the equipment to a company to get it cleaned.
MSC by Gibler/Fischer to approve Treasurer’s Report.
MSC by Fischer/Gibler to approve refund to Jeremy and Ashley Eickert in the amount of $656.19 for an Assessor’s Palpable Error for property located at N7600 Blackbird Lane, per Associated Appraisal.
Discussion held regarding rental property located at W1872 Conservation Road. Calumet County Nurse Bonnie Kolbe informed the town board of the results of an inspection completed at the property. The town decided to contact Building Inspector Paul Birschbach and get him involved to make sure it passes inspection before anyone occupies the home again. Currently the home is unoccupied.
Clerk’s Report - Reviewed building reports, electronic and hazardous waste collection events, newsletters, and upcoming workshops.
Chair’s Report – Quotes for replacing windows at the town hall were reviewed. MSC made by Fischer/Gibler to accept bid submitted by Dennis Thiel in the amount of $5,665.00. Additional information added to quote included the 2 front windows were to be bronze in color which added $97.00 each to the quote. All windows are to be double pane.
Brian Glaeser contacted Chairman Maile to update him on the Man-Cal Road bridge project. Brian attended the state highway meeting where state officials advised those attending to return to their local government officials with suggestions to decrease costs by shortening approaches, narrowing bridges and putting in smaller bridges. Brian said it does not look good at this point for receiving bridge aid.
Chairman Maile received a letter from Rick Jaeckels, Mayor of Chilton, regarding the current cost sharing policy the city has with the county for county trunk road projects including water/sewer lines and curb and gutter. At this time the Town of Brillion does not wish to sign or support the MOU that was enclosed with the letter. The clerk will contact the mayor’s office and let them know.
Road Supervisor’s Report – Discussion on culvert replacement on Bastian and Harvestore Road. Chairman Maile will contact Ayres Associates for a proposal on engineering services for both Bastian and Harvestore Roads.
