 TOWN OF ARBOR VITAE  General Meeting     March 1, 2017

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 7 others were also present.


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


MINUTES: Motion by Nerdahl, second by Johnson to approve the minutes of the February 15th, 2017 meeting as read. Motion carried.


PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE:  1) Oneida County Ambulance report and appropriation amount for 2016 payable in 2017. 2) Wolf Summit II in Sugar Camp on 4-8-17.   3) January’s Treasurer Report.


FENCE VARIANCE – KIRK KECK: Kirk Keck lives at 11675 Sherwood Lane and would like to put up a fence to keep debris from a neighboring property from cluttering his home. Our setback is 48’ from the centerline. He would like to bring it out closer to the road. There is a telephone pole where the fence would end. Board members went out and took a look at it. Motion by Bauers, second by Perry to allow the fence variance for the Keck property at 11675 Sherwood Ln. Unanimously approved.


LAKELAND ATV-UTV REQUEST: Bauers requested that the ATV-UTV Club come every year to request use of our designated roads. Use of the railroad grade is owned by the state but in our town so we are responsible for any damage done. Bauers said we will pass that on to the ATV Club. Motion by Bauers, second by Perry to renew the use of designated trails for the ATV-UTV Club for another year. Unanimously approved.


PASER DESCRIPTION FOR ROADS: Perry submitted the road rating system from the Phaser Manual as a guidelines for the board to follow when we do our road tour and bid for road projects. The board felt that was a great idea especially when we have new board members to help them understand when a road is in need of repair. Motion by Bauers, second by Nerdahl to follow the pavement rating from the Phaser Manual for our roads. Unanimously approved.


EAGLE WASTE TRUCK USE DURING ROAD LIMITS: Eagle Waste came and requested to use trucks that were 14,000 lbs empty and under 20,000lbs full to pick up garbage in Arbor Vitae. The board asked them to stay away from the edges of the road and a motion by Perry, was seconded by Hunter to allow the small truck during weight limits for Eagle Waste. Unanimously approved.  


ADJOURNMENT:  Motion by Perry, second by Bauers to adjourn the meeting at 7:35PM. The next general meeting is March 15th, 2017 at 7:00PM.

These are the unapproved minutes of the March 1st, 2017 meeting.

Mary Reuland, Clerk
