2018

Chairman Ronald Barnaby called the meeting to order at 4:30 P.M. 
Present were Supervisors Ronald Fandry and Terry Patenaude,
Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle and 1 audience member.  The Pledge of
Allegiance was recited, Barnaby welcomed everyone.  Agenda approved by
motion of Patenaude/Fandry, motion carried.

Barnaby stated audience recognition is allowed for agenda items and
asked Audience member Mike Kinsley is he wished to speak regarding the
Archery club now or later in the meeting under New Business, Mike
replied he would wait.

Meeting minutes from November 14, 2018 regular meeting were approved
as presented by motion of Patenaude/Fandry, motion carried.

License/Zoning:  Sawyer County Zoning Administrator Dale Olson
corresponded with the Town regarding proposed changes with  AG One and
Two zoning stating they were going back to their old Ag ordinances
which were less restrictive and if there are people who wish to take
advantage of the Farmland Preservation program they will put an
“overlay district” on that property.  Discussion took place, motion by
Barnaby/Patenaude to approve the proposed changes, motion carried.

Regarding Liquor License Application for Diane Boyer/The Rustic Lodge
N5354 Lake Winter Road.
Lori informed the board of the details and timeline with the sale of
the business from Mary Kay Mork to Diane Boyer and license
requirements involved.  The board by motion of Barnaby/Fandry approved
the liquor license for Diane Boyer with the understanding the sale
goes through and Diane meets all liquor license requirements, motion
carried.   Lori verified she discussed with Mary Kay Mork upon the
sale, Mary Kay will be required to relinquish her license back to the
Town so we can issue a New Liquor License to Diane Boyer and Mary Kay
was in agreement with this.

Highway/Road Report:  Barnaby stated there hasn’t been much snow to
plow but the crew has been sanding roads and gravel pit reclamation
work is being done.  Barnaby stated the Hanson Bridge is now open to
traffic and he spoke with the bridge foreman who stated because of the
weather conditions they haven’t had a chance to apply sealant on the
deck but will come back in the spring to do it and will also at that
time remove the approaches to the temporary bridge and complete rip
rap work.  Fandry asked if the bridge can be used now by Logging
Trucks.  Barnaby replied yes and that he asked Pat Lancour about this
too, Pat assured him that upon certification and strength testing the
bridge can be open for all traffic.  Fandry asked if that has been
done, Barnaby and Patenaude both responded that the bridge is open for
traffic and there are no signs posted indicating any restrictions.   
Patenaude asked if a guard rail will be added, Lori stated the plans
would have to be reviewed to answer that question for sure.  The crew
pulled the damaged dock in from the Barker Lake boat landing, it
appears someone tried to drive up on it and it broke the aluminum, the
crew will attempt repairs.  Brushing is being done with the mower and
cutting is being done of larger trees mower can’t cut.  At Patenaudes
suggestion, a company from Ladysmith came to take a look at the Shop
overhead doors to automate and equip the doors with remotes etc.  Some
modifications are needed on the doors and including 10 remotes for the
different trucks and equipment the cost was estimated around $600.00,
so they will be doing this in the near future.   The new motor for the
Lake Winter Dam gate has been received at the County, Barnaby spoke to
Tim Siedl who indicated they are busy with paperwork now but plan to
get the new motor installed around the first of the year on the West
Gate.  Patenaude stated the brushing and mowing looks really nice; and
added the Highway Class he and the crew members attended was very
informative.  Fandry added the crew did the nice job on those signs by
Jenkin too.

Unfinished Business:  The Public Budget Hearing and Levy Approval
meeting was held November 14, 2018.  The 2019 Approved Levy for the
Town of Winter is $339,638.00.  At that meeting there were no
questions related to the budget and it was recommended for approval at
our December meeting which is tonight.  Barnaby asked the board if
they had any questions or changes they would like to make in the
proposed 2019 Budget.  There were none, therefore a motion was made by
Fandry/Patenaude to approve the 2019 Proposed Budget in the amount of
$997,239.00, motion carried.

New Business:   Audience member Mike Kinsley was here representing the
Archery Club and the renewal of the lease agreement which will expire
January 1, 2019.  Discussion took place, motion by Barnaby/Fandry to
approve a 5 year lease renewal, motion carried.  Lori will prepare an
amendment to the lease agreement for signatures.  The board expressed
to Mike that they feel the Club has been a great benefit to the area
especially the youth and thanked them for their efforts.

Regarding a wage increase for election workers; it’s been several
years since the election workers have had a wage increase.  Discussion
took place regarding on going/ever changing education and other
requirements in election training and administration.   Lori and the
board agreed that we have a great group of election workers who
despite the constant changes continue to be dedicated to the Town and
the integrity of our elections.  Motion by Patenaude/Fandry to
increase wages for the election workers $2.00 per hour across the
board, motion carried.  Lori provided a roster of our current election
workers for approval for 2019-2020 term; motion by Barnaby/Patenaude

election term, motion carried.

were approved, motion carried.

Board Concerns:   Patenaude informed the board the NEW Library
agreement done November 26, 2018 had an error in the number of
representatives for the Town of Winter, it has been corrected from 5
to 4 and the Town of Couderay will have 2 instead of 1, based upon
population of the municipality with a maximum of 11 members’ total. 
Patenaude also informed the Library Board director and Vice President
that effective January 1, 2019, he would like to step down from his
Library Board position and we will need to find a replacement for
this.    Denise Pleoger, Helen Dennis and Sunday Barnaby are current
members who represent the Town.  Patenaude feels with the changes of
the joint agreement and upcoming election of officers etc., he felt
this was a good time for him to step down.  Fandry stated he had a few
people in mind that he will talk to for this position.  

Next Meeting date was set for January 9, 2019 at 4:30 P.M.  With no
further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned.
