August 2, 2016 meeting minutes


TOWN OF ARBOR VITAE  General Meeting  August 3, 2016

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


ROLL CALL: Present Frank Bauers, Jeff Hunter, Brian Nerdahl, Ryan Johnson and Steve Perry.  Brian Jopek from the Lakeland Times and 5 other people were also present.


AGENDA:  Motion by Perry, second by Bauers to approve the agenda after changing item #4 to the first position. Motion carried.


MINUTES: Motion by Johnson, second by Hunter approve the minutes of the July 20th, 2016 meeting as read. Motion carried.


PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE:  1) Letter from the Governor about the 2017-2019 Transportation Budget. 2) Hunter reported that they would have Matt Messina back to discuss the height of the airport fence and how far off the lot lines it would be. 3) Mike Deutscher asked for support on the Hwy 51 project. They are close to finalizing the plan and he wasn’t sure if they had any crosswalks. He’d like to see it on the next agenda to see the plans. Bauers will call Jed Peters. 4) TRIP funds meeting results.


MINOCQUA LIBRARY CONTRIBUTION: The board further discussed the Minocqua Library contribution and felt with 18,000 other circulations in Vilas County and no one else is charged or has commit to an agreement they will hold off on setting an amount until they talk to the County Board Representatives. We are libraried and feel that a County Library System would be the most fair way to go. Bauers will ask DeBruyne, Teichmiller, Verhulst and Rayala to attend the next meeting.


CONTRACT WITH RHINELANDER FOR TANK INSPECTIONS: Randy Barnes with the State of WI. Is retiring and our tank inspections can be done by the Rhinelander Fire Dept. They have the credentials and it is at no cost to us. Any time a fuel tank goes in the ground it has to be inspected. Motion by Bauers, second by Nerdahl to sign the agreement with Rhinelander for that service. Unanimously approved.


OPERATORS LICENSES: There were none.


HEALTH INSURANCE DISCUSSION: We are still waiting for one more set of prices from our current carrier WPS. We are trying to stay most similar to our current plan with an increase in deductible to try to control the price. It will be on the next agenda.


ADJOURNMENT:  Motion by Perry, second by Bauers to adjourn the meeting at 7:55PM. The next general meeting is August 17th, 2016 at 7:00PM. These are the unapproved minutes of the August 3rd, 2016 meeting.
