April 15, 2013 Board Meeting Minutes



General Meeting

April 16, 2013

CALL TO ORDER: Chairman Bauers called the general meeting to order at 6:30PM. It had been properly posted and the media notified.

ROLL CALL: Present Frank Bauers, Jeff Hunter, Richard Held, Brian Nerdahl and Steve Perry.   5 others were also present.  

AGENDA: Motion by Held, second by Perry to approve the agenda.  Motion carried.

MINUTES:  Motion by Held, second by Hunter to dispense with the reading and approve the minutes of the April 3rd, 2013 meeting. Motion carried.

TREASURER’S REPORT:  The March report was reviewed by the board. Motion by Nerdahl, second by Perry to approve the report as presented. Motion carried.         

PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE: 1) Our commercial insurance policy will be going up $1075.00 this year and we will receive a dividend check of $1614.00 from workers comp. 2) There will be a 5k run as part of the Penny Parade celebration and the Woodruff Chairman called for permission to have the run in Arbor Vitae.   

LIQUOR LICENSE – SICKLER GROUP, LLC: May 1, 2013 Brandy Lake BP will be owned by The Sickler Group LLC. They have applied for the Class A Beer and the Class A Liquor licenses. Everything is in order. Bauers remembers the 1976 opening of that establishment and its commitment to the Fire Dept. Motion by Perry, second by Bauers to approve the licenses as presented. Unanimously approved. 

DECISION ON DOT PARCEL: After waiting several years the D.O.T has finally given an overpriced value of the 1.13acres of land next to the town hall. They want us to abandon the road as part of the deal. It’s only use would be for parking and a sign because building and access has been restricted. The D.O.T. put Hwy. 70 on our road(Rudolph) and we were never compensated. The Board feels the only way this can be hashed out is through our attorney.  Motion by Perry, second by Held to talk to our town attorney and the W.T.A. attorneys concerning this problem. Unanimously approved.  

TRID PROJECT – OLD HWY 51N:  The project was put out for bid April 2nd by MSA. The bid opening will be Friday, April 26th at 1:00pm and then MSA will take the bids for comparison. A recommendation will be ready by the May 1st General Board meeting on who should be awarded the contract. 

BUILDING REPORT:  1-addition $2000.00, 1-deck $650.00, 1-demolition $5000.00, 1-fence $2000.00. Months total $9650.00. Years total $9650.00.
