TOWN BOARD MEETING – TOWN OF WINTER – N4680 CTY RD W – WINTER, WI MAY
9, 2018.

Chairman David Kinsley called the meeting to order at 4:35 p.m. 
Present were board members Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude,
Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle and one audience member.
The Pledge of Allegiance was recited, Chairman Kinsley welcomed
everyone.

Motion by Barnaby/Patenaude, to approve the meeting agenda as
presented, motion carried.
Chairman Kinsley referenced audience recognition and to speak up if
there are any questions.
Motion by Patenaude/Barnaby to approve the meeting minutes from April
11, 2018 as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning:  Regarding the proposed changes to Sawyer County
Zoning ordinances related to Non-Ferrous metallic mining: All were in
favor to approve the proposed changes, motion by Barnaby/Patenaude,
motion carried.

Highway / Road Report:  Chairman Kinsley regarding the Town Roads
stated the frost boils seem worse now than 3 weeks ago.  Equipment
maintenance is about done and ready to go for the summer.  Chairman
Kinsley stated he spoke to a representative at the DOT in Superior
regarding Bridge Aid for the bridge repairs needed on a couple of our
bridges.  There is none available for bridge repairs.  Chairman
Kinsley stated when the water goes down we plan to dig it out and fill
it with hot mix like they did previously on a different bridge and it
worked well. Regarding Bridge Deck repairs, applying a blacktop
overlay verses Polymer was discussed. Chairman Kinsley had spoken to
County Highway Commissioner Gary Gedart and his experience with
blacktop overlay has been favorable.   The blacktop overlay is a rut
mix and costs would be approximately $7000.00 to $8000.00 total for
both bridges and includes a 10’-15’ approach to the bridge as well. 
Chairman Kinsley stated this would extend the life of the bridge at a
much more reasonable cost verses the Polymer process.  Patenaude
stated the surfaces should be washed first, Kinsley stated perhaps the
Fire Department could spray them down, Patenaude agreed. Chairman
Kinsley motioned regarding bridge deck repairs to apply a blacktop
overlay as discussed, second by Barnaby, motion carried.  Audience
member Charles Kelly inquired about sweeping road sand, Chairman
Kinsley replied our sweeper is under repair but would see that it gets
done and hopefully a little rain will help too.  

Regarding Snow Plow contracts:  It was discussed and motioned by
Kinsley/Barnaby to add the following language to the snow plow
contracts:   The Town of Winter will discontinue snow plowing of
driveways once the Seasonal Road Ban weight restrictions have been
applied, motion carried.   Patenaude abstained from the vote as he
does private snow plowing. 

Correspondence / Contacts:  Road Bans were discussed;  Bans will
remain for at least another week or so depending upon conditions. 
Chairman Kinsley stated that Duane Zenke informed Dave Martin they
will be receiving a 2013 Grader from the Dakotas, it’s the same type
as our current grader.  He would be willing to trade us between
$25,000.00 and $50,000.00.  Chairman Kinsley stated this would be
updating our equipment at a very reasonable price and asked the board
members thoughts.  Barnaby stated he is in favor of equipment upgrades
especially at a good price.  Patenaude stated he thought we should
look at a sweeper for one of the loaders as it would come in handy
too, Chairman Kinsley agreed.  Chairman Kinsley stated since we had
not budgeted for this, we would temporarily have to borrow the funds
for it. The board was open to this depending upon further inspection
of the Grader.  Barnaby received a call that the screen was bent on
the bulkhead on Black Dan/Island creek; the crew was able to insert a
new screen to prevent anything going down stream.  

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions regarding the
disbursements, motion by Barnaby/Kinsley to approve Check # 19029
through 19052 in the amount of $30,052.37, motion carried.

With no further business to discuss; next meeting date was set for
June 13, 2018 at 4:30 p.m.

Lori presented a list of people who inquired about road bans and the
board’s decision at tonight’s meeting, since Lori will be gone to the
Clerks Convention, Chairman Kinsley stated he would call these
people.
Meeting was adjourned.

Lori Van Winkle, Clerk   May 15, 2018
