PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE:  1) We received a certified letter from Vilas County stating that it will be 10 years and we must comply with the Uniform Addressing System Ordinance. This will be on the next agenda.


OPEN BIDS ON THE NEW TRUCK: 3 bids came in for the chassis. Kenworth bid $100,214.00 with a $30,000.00 trade in. Truck Country bid a Freightliner for $91,234.00 with a $20,000.00 trade in and Mid States bid an International for $92,900.00 with a $50,000.00 trade in for our old truck.

We had only one bid from Truck Equipment for the hydraulics for a total of $109,302.00. Motion by Bauers, second by Hunter to accept the bid from Truck Equipment. Unanimously approved.


AIRPORT MATTERS: The minutes from the airport identify 2 different survey lines and representatives from Becher Hoppe want to address the problem of Propwash Bay crossing onto airport property, serveral driveways encroaching and even a problem with a shed they would like removed. Lot lines in this area are disputed due to surveyors placing property lines outside of old airport surveys. They would like to see the proposed fence located outside of the disputed area and allow for a 15 ft. setback for maintenance and signs. Because of the 2 surveys a motion by Bauers and a second by Nerdahl is to recommend to the airport to sell the land in question to adjourning property owners. Motion passed with Hunter abstaining.


AVW-DEVILS ELBOW CONTRIBUTION REQUEST:  This is the first year for AV-W to take over the Devil’s Elbow run at Trout Lake Golf Course. The town originally gave them the seed money to start. A motion by Nerdahl was seconded by Johnson to donate $500.00 to this years function. Unanimously approved.
