PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE: 1) Landfill Venture Group rescheduled tomorrow’s meeting to 2-24-14 @ 6:00PM due to weather.  2) Perry, Nerdahl and Held attended  the WTA District meeting on 2-7-14 where they did a mock-up of Board of Review. All were certified for the next 2 years. 3) Two Vilas County Zoning Public Hearings both on March 6th one is for the Wireless Communications Ordinance and the other for the Sanitary Fee schedule.  4) Airport Comm. Intergovernmental Agreement final draft with the revision of the terms for Commissioners from 6 years to 3 years. 5) February 25th meeting at the AVW School for public involvement to discuss the US Hwy 51 project from 3rd Street in Woodruff to Hwy 70E in Arbor Vitae. This will also be in the Lakeland Times.


D.OT. MEETING AND UPDATE: Bauers, Hunter and Mike Timmons, Woodruff Chairman attend a meeting at the DOT office in Rhinelander to hear about Hwy 51 plans prior to a public input meeting. There was about 5 options and drawing on the repairs and reconstruction one of which included sidewalks and a bike trail 7-8’ all the way up Hwy 51. A round-a-bout was still an option so was a center turn lane that was nice but would be a hardship with the meandering right-of-way. Bauers let the DOT know that we can’t maintain sidewalks all year round. Hopefully the public will attend the meeting on the 25th. 2017 is the scheduled start of the project.


RESOLUTION #2-14 VILAS COUNTY OUTDOOR RECREATION PLAN:  On January 28, 2014 Vilas County Board approved a 5-year Outdoor Recreation Plan and submitted it along with a resolution to the WDNR. It included Arbor Vitae and our submissions for the plan. This adoption of the resolution allows us to receive eligibility into the plan. Motion by Held, second by Bauers to approve Resolution #2-14 Vilas County Outdoor Recreation Plan.  Unanimously approved.


BUILDING REPORT:  1-deck $3,000.00. January’s total $3,000.00. Years total $3,000.00.
