MINUTES:  Motion by Held, second by Nerdahl to approve the minutes of the February 20th, 2013 meetings as read. Motion carried.

TREASURER’S REPORT:  The February report was reviewed by the board. Due to Diana Steinberger leaving Northland Accounting Freudigmann will be changing accounting firms and going with Anderson & Metz. Rich Anderson does the accounting work for neighboring towns and felt his prices were comparable to what we have been paying. She notified the board that there will be no report for April because she will be on vacation and the information will not be here prior to her departure. Motion by Nerdahl, second by Perry to approve the report as presented. Motion carried.         

PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE: 1) There was no meeting on 3-6-13 due to lack of an agenda. 2) Citizens Bank, our towns legal bank, is merging with First Merit Bank.  3) A copy of the certified survey map of the property at the corner and a selling price of $19,700.00 was briefly discussed. Pat Massino from the DOT will be at the April 3rd meeting for further discussion. 4) Annual Board of Review meetings available for the board to attend or possibly getting the Wisline tapes for certification.  

ORDINANCE #1-13 EXTEND TOWN OFFICER TERMS:  Due to the state election law change which extends absentee and provisional voting until the Friday after the Spring election leaving a gap between the current term and the new term for elected officials, Ordinance #1-13 extends those terms. Motion by Held second by Perry to approve Ordinance #1-13 Extending Town Officer Terms in Response to Election Law Changes. Unanimously approved.

ITEMS FOR ANNUAL MEETING AGENDA: The Annual Meeting will be April 16th, 2013 at 7:00PM. Some suggestions for the meeting were to give information about the Bike Trail and the Fire Dept. would like to buy a new fire truck.

OPERATOR’S LICENSES: There were 3 applications for licenses and all checked out. Motion by Nerdahl, second by Held to approve the operator’s licenses as presented. Unanimously approved.

TRID PROJECT – OLD HWY 51N:  A water run-off report is available for the board to look at. MSA secured permits from the DOT to work in their right-of-way and Bauers feels it should be ready to bid. Bauers will also ask the road crew to put a stake in where the homeowners should move their mailbox to. Bauers also talked to Matt Gaulke, Pitlik & Wick, about the lot that Bud Bowman owns and that Pitlik will be using temporarily to store ground up concrete and blacktop until ready for reuse. They will use that for our project and the Minocqua DOT project. No Vilas County permits are needed.
