Regular Town Board Meeting June 21, 2011

 

MINUTES OF THE
TOWN OF BARNES
REGULAR BOARD MEETING
June 21, 2011
 
Chairperson Lu Peet called the Regular Board Meeting to order at 5:30PM. A Roll Call was taken to establish a quorum and verification of public notice was asked of Clerk-Treasurer Brustad by Peet. Al board members were present; Brustad verified the agenda had been posted as required. Peet asked for a motion to go into closed session pursuant to State Statute 19.85(c) “considering employment, promotion, compensation or performance evaluation data of any public employee over which the governmental body has jurisdiction or exercises responsibility. The board will reconvene to the regular session after the Public Hearing at approximately 6:30PM.
 
Motion (Porter/Meinke) to go into closed session pursuant to State Statute 19.85(c) “considering employment, promotion, compensation or performance evaluation data of any public employee over which the governmental body has jurisdiction or exercises responsibility.
Roll call vote taken: all responded yes. Motion carried.
 
Motion (Webb/Porter) to return to the regular open session. Motion carried. No decisions were made in closed session and discussion was limited to only what was noticed.   The board returned to the floor at 6:08PM.
 
Public Hearing: Call the Public Hearing on Resolution for discontinuance of Metcalf and Carlstrom Roads.
 
Peet called the Public Hearing to order at 6:12PM. A letter received from Corinne Metcalf was read. She was opposed to the discontinuance of Metcalf road as it was one of the reasons they purchased that property in 1991. If it is to be reverted back to the homeowners, she asked that the town hand it back in safe and satisfactory condition. It presently has wash outs and pot holes and is desperately in need of gravel. Bob Lang, Road Foreman, said they could put some gravel on it and grade it before it was discontinued. The Metcalf road only serves 1 person and there is no place to turn around. 
Norma Carlstrom spoke and she understood the need to discontinue Carlstrom road.   Bob Lang said he would grade theirs as well.
 
No one else wished to speak at the Hearing so Chairperson Peet closed the Public Hearing at 6:30PM.
Chair Lu Peet reconvened the Regular Town Board Meeting at 6:30PM. The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was recited.   Peet asked for a motion to approve the June Agenda, approve the minutes of the Last Regular Board meeting and a motion to dispense with reading of the minutes.
 
Motion (Porter/Meinke) to approve the agenda, the minutes of the last Regular Town Board meeting and to dispense with the reading of those minutes. Motion carried. The agenda follows:

Motion (Meinke/Webb) to approve the Treasurer’s report as read. Motion carried.
 
Clerk Correspondence
 
Brustad said she had been in contact with Jim Baaken of Ayres and Associates regarding the boat landing grants. He will be here at the next Board Meeting in July to speak. There is a possibility of receiving another grant which would potentially pay for the work 100%, but the work could not be done then until next year. He will explain further at the next board meeting.
Per the discussion in closed session the board wished to make a motion:
 
Motion (Meinke/McGee) to approve a raise to $40,000.00 per year effective July 1st for the Town Roads Foreman. Roll call vote taken and all responded yes. Motion carried.
 
                Set Open Book and Board of Review date
 
The Assessor, Charlotte Johnson, said any day in August would be fine.  Open book will be the 13th of August, a Saturday, from Noon until 2:00PM or whenever everyone has been taken care of. Board of Review will be that Monday, the 15th of July, from 5:00PM until 7:00PM. 
 
Public Comment Session – 3 Minute limit for those not on the agenda
 
Phil Halper spoke on not wanting the Board to discontinue Cranberry Lake road.
No one else wished to speak.
               
Open proposals for Assessment Services for 2012 with option for a 3 year maintenance contract
 
Brustad said she had published the ad for assessment services and one ad that went out incorrectly asked for a bid for assessment services with an option for a 3 year revaluation contract. She hoped all who did bid on the project were aware of that and what the board wanted was an option for a 3 year maintenance contract. If anyone bid for a revaluation, the board may have to have everyone re-bid. She received 4 proposals:
Associated Appraisal Service submitted a bid for $12,000.00 for 2012, $12,050.00 for 2013 and $12,100.00 for 2014, on a maintenance contract. There was an option to post the assessments online for an additional amount
Pine Creek Appraisal Services a/k/a Charlotte Johnson had submitted a bid for $6,000.00 for the 2012 year only
Michael Schnautz submitted a bid for 2012, 2013, and 2014 for a total of $50,700.00 or $16,900.00 per year.
Jeremy Kurtzweil submitted a bid for 2-12-2-14 for $20,100/year.
Chair Lu Peet read a letter from a resident on the problems she has encountered with the present Assessor. 
 
Motion (Porter/Webb) to approve Associated Appraisal Services bid for $12,000.00 for 2012, $12,050.00 for 2013, and $12,100.00 for 2014. Roll call vote taken: all responded yes. Motion carried.
 
Department Head Reports:
 
                Highway
 
The town hall water system upgrade is complete with the elimination of the well pit. The new pressure tank and distribution valving is in the mechanical room.   A new water line was also installed from the well all the way to the new pressure tank. The excavation revealed that the sewer line had been leaking for some time so that was replaced with a new insulated pipe that can be driven over year round. This will give us the option of plowing behind the building during winter. The excavation also revealed that the power to the Quonset hut was run improperly. During the upgrade we discovered a break in the line that had been bleeding power directly into the ground.
I would like to blacktop the parking lot on the west side of the town hall to a width of 52 feet. This will give us diagonal parking on both sides of the parking lot with one way traffic routed behind the building. The only other obstacle is the water line to the town garage which I would like to eliminate and plumb water over from the fire hall.
Our most recent fire inspection clarified the lighting requirements for the entrances to the town hall. There will soon be two high pressure sodium lights on the west side of the building illuminating the handicap ramp along with one on the main entrance. These will be on from dusk to dawn. Also the exit lights for these entrances will be replaced with battery backup units with lights that will illuminate inside and outside the building so people can safely exit during a power interruption. The exit lights near the bathrooms will be eliminated.
The new playground equipment is complete. I will be having Danny Duval grind ten stumps in the park in the near future.
We were approved for 50% grant of a $13,000 culvert replacement through the county bridge aid on Mulligan Creek road. The county will be handling all DNR contacts and permits, and they will be doing the installation. I also discussed crushing gravel for the northern road system in the Ruth Lake pit with the Bayfield County highway commissioner. He was open to the idea, but it will have to be placed on their next agenda. We might be able to do something by next year.
43 truckloads of 2 inch minus gravel were placed on Halfway Road from North Church road to the west to firm up the hill the logging trucks couldn’t climb. This concludes the county forestry grant from 2010 for $9,165.
The reconstruction of the northern roads has begun. One mile of Moore road is complete and two miles of West Church are should be done before long. Halfway road from North Church to the west will be our next priority.
We did considerably more work on Eightmile Lake Road including major ditching with water run offs by Earl Gregorie’s place. Hopefully this will eliminate some of our problems there. The turnaround construction has also started. Smith Lake road is completed and we will be moving to James road next. The boat landing projects at Island Lake and Robinson Lake are waiting for permits.
I have been researching a new backhoe to replace the John Deere loader in the near future. I will be traveling some during the next couple of months so I can operate the different models for myself. 
 
The Gordon Correctional facility has finally responded to my requests and will start performing tree removal on Tars Pond road next week.
Dave Schiess has requested vacation for the week of August 8th
I will be meeting with land owners on South Call O Wild over the holiday about discontinuing their road. I have also been working with the landowners on North Lyndale Bay road. As the board knows, I have sent letters to landowners on Cranberry Lake Road and Smart Road. I have had no response from anyone on Smart Road and no requests for any meetings from Cranberry Lake Road, so I would like to ask for resolutions to discontinue Smart Road and the last segment of Cranberry Lake Road to be placed on the July agenda.

Motion (Webb/Meinke) to amend the budget to add revenues of $9,165.00 and $4,825.00 for grant monies received and amend the capital outlay expenses by adding $9,385.00 and $4,825.00. Roll call vote taken: all responded yes. Motion carried.
 
 
                Cemetery
 
Dave Schiess reported there have been problems with the new fence again, not sure if it is vandals or high winds, but he thinks it is the wind. Donna Porter said the rails can’t be screwed down or it will void the warranty. They have a lifetime replacement warranty. Dave has some cremation burials coming up. The lawn mowing person suggested planting the hill below the fence with ground cover plants, Donna has been in contact with the plant guy and it sounds like it will be a much bigger job than suggested, so most likely it will not happen. The Cemetery committee will get together soon to discuss. Dave thinks if they disc it and plant grass after putting better dirt in there it would grow better.
                               
                Fire and Ambulance Department
Since the last Town board meeting the ambulance has had 8 calls since the last meeting.
 
1 - Boating accident treated patient at scene no transport
1 – ATV accident Gold cross Intercept and Life Link 111 at Minesung Acres
1 – Transported to ST. Mary’s
3 – Transport to Hayward
1 – Iron River contacted for Mutual Aid
1 - Transported to St. Lukes
 
I have driver training scheduled for all EMT’s and personnel who will be Driving the Ambulance this weekend.   Normally this type of training is 16 hours which 4 is class room. This training will only be 6 hours long because the driving portion of it will be conducted in a driving simulator so it is only two hours long on Saturday and so employees will only need to be there for two hours on Saturday. I invite any of the Town Board members to show up on Saturday and observe the simulator portion of this class and is excellent training for people who will be driving with no wear and tear on our rig. 
I was hoping to be at the meeting but I am unable to because of family commitment. The Fire and Ambulance Department as a fund Raiser will be selling shirts with the Shoulder Patch insignia on it. There will only be 200 of these shirts ever made and are on display in the Clerk’s office for purchase or talk to your neighbor Fire Department member or Ambulance Member to purchase, the cost is $18.00. 
Fourth of July festivities are moving forward I was notified today through Colin that the Green Bay Packers have approved a Packer item hoping (signed football as asked) for our ticket sale raffle to have as an additional fund raiser. 
The Fire Department has responded to one mutual aid call to the Gordon Fire Department for a Kitchen Fire. 
On July 7th the Fire Department will be conducting Fire Pumper relay operation training at the Robinson Lake Boat Landing. The purpose of this is for those places that we may only get one truck into we would then pump water to that truck through a large diameter hose. This was a goal of mine for some time which is why over the past several years we have been purchasing this hose and we now can complete this type of operation with the assistance of Bob Lang who is very familiar and a wealth of knowledge in pumping operations.
I am sure the wet weather has had something to do with it but also in part to education over the last several years and the assistance of our residents and property owners within the Town of Barnes we have had no Wildland Fires this year. Thank you to everyone for doing their part.

Committee Reports        
 
                Eurasian Water Milfoil committee
 
                Ingemar Ekstrom reported someone finding milfoil on Tomahawk lake. They have had divers there to report just how much. It looks like it is mostly near the boat landing. Also Sandbar looks like the milfoil was severely suppressed from the treatment.
 
                Parks Committee
 
Approval of request for $60.00 to hold a dedication ceremony on July 4th for the new park equipment
The dedication will be at 10:30AM, before the parade starts. Susan Pagnucci will purchase cookies and they will have coffee there also.

                Cell Tower Communications Committee
No report was given
 
Land Use Planning Commission
 
Dave Pease reported the commission looked at 2 requests: Melin request to use an existing mobile home on the property for storage only. This complies with the Land Use Plan. The second is a request by John Traynor to build a residence which is zoned Forestry 1. This again is in harmony with the Land Use Plan, he has extensive acreage. 
Regarding the cell tower committee’s findings, no written report has been received, therefore they haven’t addressed the amendment yet.
 
Zoning:
3)      Special Use Permit Application by John & Julie Melin to use an existing mobile home on their property for storage only at 6595 Hall Road
 
Motion ( Porter/McGee) to approve the request to use an existing mobile home on his property for storage.    Motion carried.
 
4)      Class A Special Use request by John Traynor to build a residence on his property at 4080 E Robinson Lake Road that is zoned Forestry 1
 
Motion (McGee/Meinke) to approve the request to build a residence on his property that is zoned Forestry 1. Motion carried. 
 
 
 
 
 
Liquor License Renewals:
 
                Class A Combo License for: Jim’s Bait LLC
Brustad said she received a letter from the Department of Revenue and asked not to issue a license until some items have been satisfied. To date this hasn’t been done, so the Board may want to approve the license if all requirements have been met by the state department of revenue.
 
Motion (Webb/Meinke) to approve the License once all requirements have been met and all taxes are paid. Motion carried.
 
                Class B Combo License for: RC’s Decoy Inn, Kendall P. Graese d/b/a Northwood’s Tap, Barnes Community VFW Post 8329, Barnes Trading Post Inc., Downtown Barnes, Inc. d/b/a Cedar Lodge Steakhouse & Grille, Traut’s Resort, LLC, Doorn’s Inn Inc., Cleo M. Marshall d/b/a Mike’s Sportsman Saloon, Nancy M Lindberg d/b/a The Windsor, Enchanted Inn Corp. d/b/a Enchanted Inn, Tommel, Inc. d/b/a Backwoods Resort, Eagle Horn LLC. d/b/a  Buck N Bass, and PJ’s Cabin Store Inc.
 
 Brustad said all are good to go, a few have taxes yet to be paid, but they are aware the taxes have to be paid before the license is issued. On Ken Graese she received a letter from the Department of Revenue on him also, and he will have to get those issues taken care of. When talking with the Department of Revenue guy she realized Ken had requested a renewal license in the wrong name. The application was in the name of Kendall P Graese, and K & C Bar and Grill LLC. The seller’s permit is issued to Graese’s Bar and Grill LLC. Since she published the name on his application, he will have to come back in and re-do his application, then she will have to publish the request in the paper. He won’t be able to be open until after 15 days once it is published. She recommended tabling his request and then meeting after she gets the application in the right name from him.
 
Motion (Peet/McGee) to approve all license renewals but Kendall P Graese d/b/a Northwoods Tap. Motion carried.
 
Motion ( Porter/McGee) to table Ken Graese’s license renewal application until he has submitted a new renewal application and the Department of Revenue issues get taken care of. Motion carried. 
 
Operator Licenses:
 
1 Year Renewal License for: Kevin A. Murphy, Douglas Fahrney, Stephen John Anderson and Evonne M. Becker
 
Brustad said all have paid their fees, all background checks were ok.
 
Motion (Porter/Meinke) to approve the above named renewal license applications. Motion carried.
 
2 Year Renewal License for: Scott T Ruhman, Connie, Richards, Nancy Gohde, Kathleen Miner, Paul Mueller, Colleen Ruhman, Rose Skinner, Robert Tuttle, Amanda vanDoorn and James Wiechert, and David Basacker.
 
Brustad reported all background checks were ok, except on Jim Wiechert’s application he didn’t mention an arrest. This was nothing to deny the license for him, but he should re-do his application.
 
Motion (Webb/Meinke) to approve the license applications for all the above, but Jim Wiechert will need to come in and re-do his application before the license is issued for him. Motion carried.
