 TOWN OF ARBOR VITAE  General Meeting  July 19, 2017

CALL TO ORDER: Chairman Bauers called the general 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 Ashley Roach.  Brian Jopek from the Lakeland Times and 2 others were also present.

TREASURER’S REPORT:  The June report prepared by Peterson-Metz was reviewed by the board.  Motion by Nerdahl, second by Bauers to approve the report as presented. Motion carried.


PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE: 1) Randy’s 2007 International truck was picked up by the Town of Franklin. 2) The 4’ oval culvert we need for the emergency repair won’t be available for about 2-weeks due to the high demand because of how muck rain we’ve gotten. 3) Great Northern did a nice job on cleaning up the north end park. 4) Fire and Rescue Chiefs, Bauers and Ken Kortenhof, Oneida County Ambulance had a meeting. Kortenhof would like to put a ambulance in our fire barn and our EMT’s would be 2nd or 3rd out. Our EMT’s would be employee’s of Ascension Hospital. Hopefully this would not overtask our volunteers and could save us some money.


ADDRESSING ORDINANCE: On 8-12-2008 Vilas County adopted the Uniform Addressing System Ordinance and gave the towns 10years to comply. Arbor Vitae sold the fire numbers for a reduced amount and the majority of people comply with the mandate from Vilas County. This ordinance was written in order to comply with the County and the people that haven’t put up their fire number will be charged as a special assessment and the town will do it for them. Motion by Bauers, second by Johnson to approve and adopt Ordinance #1-2017, Uniform Addressing System Ordinance. Unanimously approved.

On 5-17-17 Bauers contacted him and gave him 30 days to have it removed. He has a buyer and gave them until 6-30 to get it out of there and they failed to do so. Motion by Johnson, second by Hunter to fine him $500.00 and also gave him until the end of July to get a driveway permit. Unanimously approved.
