June 17, 2015 board meeting minutes


TOWN OF ARBOR VITAE  - General Meeting - June 17, 2015

CALL TO ORDER: Chairman Bauers called the general meeting to order at 7:00PM. It had been properly posted and the media notified.

MINUTES:  Motion by Perry, second by Nerdahl to approve the minutes of the June 3rd, 2015 meeting as amended. Motion carried.


TREASURER’S REPORT:  The May report was reviewed by the board. Bauers asked if under debt retirement was there a mistake because it said loader principal and loader interest. We have 2 truck loans for this year only so we called one loader to differentiate between the two.  Motion by Held, second by Hunter to approve the report as presented. Motion carried.


PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE: 1) Mike & Mary Deutscher asked to be put on the next agenda with their concerns on the Hwy 51 reconstruction project. The submitted a 5 point list that they would like board support on.


VILAS COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH & CORPORATE COUNCIL ON AV PROPERTIES:   Martha Milanowski, Vilas County Corporation Council and Gina Egan, Director of Vilas County Health Dept. came to discuss with the board some problem properties in Arbor Vitae.  Chapter 14 gives the health dept. the power to deal with Human Health Hazards either through immediate action or remediation. We are the only ones that can attach a special assessment to the tax bill and so the county will pay for cost to raze the buildings and then we would attach it as a special assessment to their tax bill. They had an agreement for the abatement of Human Health Hazards pursuant to WI Stats 254.59 so we could go over it with our town attorney. Bauers asked each board member their opinion and they all agreed this would be good and Bauers felt the sooner the better. Each situation would stand on its own and would be considered by the Vilas County Finance Committee first.


OPERATOR’S LICENSES: There was 3 applications and everything checked out. Motion by Held, second by Perry to approve the licenses as presented. Unanimously approved.
