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, Richard Held, Brian
Nerdahl and Steve Perry. Monica Baltich from the Lakeland Times and
21 others were present.
 
AGENDA:  Motion by Held, second by Perry to approve the agenda. Motion carried.

MINUTES: Motion by Nerdahl, second by Held to dispense with the reading and approve the minutes of the October 19th, 2011 meeting. Motion carried.

          
PUBLIC COMMENTS / CORRESPONDENCE:  1) DOT invitation to meet 11/7/11 or 11/20/11 with local officials regarding the upcoming US 51
reconstruction project.

BIKE TRAIL: Several people were present in hopes that the board would
sign the agreement with MSA to develop a master path plan of bike
routes, costs, easements needed and grant assistance for the Spring of
2012. The attendees said there is a need and a want so lets get the
cost. Motion by Held, second by Bauers to hire MSA to do the study
and work with us through the grant writing. Unanimously approved.

POSSIBLE SALE OR TRADE OF TOWN LAND:  Attorney Hogan was present to represent Mr. Masterson who offered to buy the old proposed landfill
site provided we could make a trade for other land. We purchased the
land in 1984 for $6800.00 and had a engineering study done for $25,000.00. The fair market value of the land is unknown. Bauers said if it were going to be sold it would first have to be assessed then we would talk to the State and then take bids. Jeff Pennucel, Real Estate Specialist for the DNR was present to remind the town that the DNR
has right of first refusal. Motion by Nerdahl, second by Perry to
start the process  but the motion failed with 3 supervisors voting no. 

AIRPORT RESOLUTION:  Hunter had some clarification concerning the
resolution but felt some items should have been removed from the
resolution. Motion by Nerdahl, second by Perry to black out #2
starting with the words extend runway and ending with the words
airport planning activities and then sign the petition. Unanimously
approved.  

ADJOURNMENT:  Motion by Held, second by Perry to adjourn the meeting at 7:50PM. The next general meeting is November 16th, 2011 after the budget meetings.
These are the unapproved minutes of the November 2nd, 2011 meeting.

Mary Reuland, Clerk
