TOWN BOARD MEETING – TOWN OF WINTER – N4680 CTY RD W – WINTER, WI
MARCH 14, 2018

Chairman David Kinsley called the meeting to order at 4:30 p.m. 
Present were board members Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude and
Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle. There were no audience members
present.  The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.   Meeting agenda
approved by Barnaby/Patenaude, motion carried.  Meeting minutes from
February 14, 2018 were approved by Kinsley/Barnaby, motion carried.

License/Zoning:  None

Highway/Road Report:  Brushing work, road bans and permits were
discussed.

Unfinished Business:  None.

New Business:  The Wild Life Services renewal contract cost has
increased due to usage. The town does cover a large area of roads
where beavers have been problematic and have used Wild Life Services
much more the past couple years. The board feels this is still a
reasonable cost for the services we receive, in addition to trapping 
they provide all the legwork/paperwork for permits with property
owners too. Motion by Patenaude/Barnaby to approve the renewal
contract, motion carried.

Correspondence/Contacts:  Lori provided a list of land use permits
received and brochures with future webinars/teleconferences.   A
complaint/concern has been received regarding dumping at the end of
Keehn Road; upon inspection it was found to be cat litter and feces. 
We’ve asked them to watch for a vehicle that may be doing this and
future complaints should be directed to Sawyer County Sheriff’s
Department.  

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions related to the
disbursements, motion by Barnaby/Kinsley to approve check # 18916
through #18938 in the amount of $18,881.96, motion carried.

Board Concerns:  Discussion regarding Gravel Crushing took place; it
was decided to advertise for crushing of approximately 10,000 yards at
the Shop pit.  Lawn mowing was also discussed and advertising will
also be done for this.  Patenaude suggested in the event there have
been changes in the rules/laws of possibly sending some of the crew to
a Flagger/WorkZone Safety Class coming up in Hayward in May.  Chairman
Kinsley stated he would inform the crew perhaps one of them could
attend.  The board discussed a letter received from the Winter Senior
Center looking for donations to upgrade their new facility. The board
members agreed this is a wonderful asset to our community and would
prefer to make their own donations but did not feel comfortable using
tax payer money to make a contribution to this.  The Town already
budgets for and contributes to their LP Gas each year and will
continue to do that.  Chairman Kinsley informed the board that we were
awarded a dozer we had  bid on from surplus.  With transport costs we
will have approximately $5000.00 into the unit worth over $70,000.00. 
The Towns experiences have been very good in the past with these
units, even if we have to put a few dollars into them we are still
money ahead when it’s time to upgrade.  Barnaby gave an update on the
Hanson Bridge project informing the board the low bid was awarded to
Larson Construction of Chippewa Falls, WI estimated at $423,951.00. 
Prep work for the temporary bridge will begin in May, but due to the
DNR permits related to the water other construction will begin after
June 15th.

Next regular meeting date was set for April 11, 2018 at 4:30 p.m.  The
Towns Annual Meeting is the statutory date April 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
With no further business to discuss, meeting was adjourned.           
                            Lori Van Winkle, Clerk – March 21, 2018
