TOWN OF WINTER
MEETING MNUTES                                                        
                                     APRIL 12, 2017

The regular business meeting of the Town of Winter Board of
Supervisors was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Chairman David
Kinsley.  Present were Supervisors Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude,
Clerk – Treasurer Lori Van Winkle and 7 audience members.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Kinsley to approve the agenda as
presented, motion carried.

Regarding audience recognition, Chairman Kinsley stated if there are
questions regarding agenda items; raise your hand to be recognized.

Motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to approve the meeting minutes
from March 8, 2017 as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning:  Act on Conditional Use Permit for Terry Ludwigson for
construction of an accessory building on vacant land on Tower Road.  
Mr. and Mrs. Ludwigson were in the audience and answered questions of
the board, there were no objections, motion by Barnaby second by
Patenaude to approve the Conditional Use Permit request, motion
carried.

Act on amendments to the County Tourist Rooming House ordinance. 
Audience member Cheryl Treeland asked to speak and brought the board
up to date on her involvement and understanding of the ordinance
stating that this was approved in February knowing there would be
additional tweaking to be done.  Lengthy discussion took place with
comments from other audience members.  It was a concern of one
audience member and the board that the county has allowed this
ordinance to pass without regard to the fact that many of these rental
units are located in residential areas zoned R1 and R2, not commercial
and is a violation of zoning ordinances.  The board feels there is
much work to be done on the ordinance overall, not just the 3 items
they are requested we act on tonight.  Chairman Kinsley stated he
feels the Towns input has no validity when the county doesn’t enforce
its own rules related to the issues.  Patenaude motioned to approve
the three Amendments to the County Tourist Rooming House Ordinance,
there was no second to his motion, motion failed.  Motion by Kinsley
to deny the amendments to the County Tourist Rooming House Ordinance
with comments that he feels these situations should require a
conditional use permit to follow the zoning rules and give the
neighboring property owners notice, second by Barnaby, motion carried,
Patenaude was opposed to this motion.  

An operator license application was received for Aimee Warren for Reds
Big Bear Lodge, Lori verified that Aimee met all requirements and fees
are paid.  Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the
operator license for Aimee Warren, motion carried.  

Highway/Road Report:  Chairman Kinsley mentioned an area he inspected
on Bumble Bee Road where the frost is still breaking up the road,
Barnaby stated he’d been out inspecting a few too and stated depending
on the weather, he feels road bans should remain at least another week
to 10 days.
It was agreed the bans should remain at least another week.  

Unfinished Business:    Gravel Crushing proposals were received from
Antczak Construction, Golat & Engel Crushing and Olynick Concrete. 
The board reviewed all proposals, motion by Patenaude, second by
Barnaby to go with Golat and Engel, motion carried.

Mowing Proposals were tabled at this time.

New Business:  Dale Biessel representing Farm Bureau gave a
presentation on Implements of Husbandry on local roads and the impact
of heavier equipment.  Farm Bureau for the future is proposing an
additional fuel tax on off road fuel to assist in funding of road
improvements.

Matt Gruel representing Winter Little League was given the floor.  He
provided the board the little leagues financial report for review and
informed the board of their need of an equipment shed, they will be
purchasing a prebuilt shed to be placed on the grounds.  Motion by
Patenaude, second by Barnaby to approve the release of budgeted funds
for Winter Little League, motion carried.

Dan Johnson representing Tuscobia Trails ATV Association was given the
floor.  Dan requested the Town open Malm, Cornwall and West Barber
Lake Roads for ATV/UTV use as this will then join them to roads that
meet up with the trails.  There were no objections, motion by Kinsley,
second by Barnaby to approve opening Malm, Cornwall and West Barber
Lake Roads for ATV/UTV use, motion carried.

Correspondence/Contacts:   There were none.

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions regarding the
disbursements, motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to approve the
disbursements as presented, motion carried. 
Ck # 18349 through # 18371 were approved in the amount of $18,562.23.

Board Concerns:   Barnaby mentioned with another busy season beginning
for our Town Crew he suggested that put out applications to hire a 3rd
full time worker.  Kinsley suggested we advertise it as a Utility
worker; someone who can do various jobs rather than being specific to
a certain job.  The board members were in agreement, advertising will
be done.

Next meeting date was set for May 10, 2017.  With no further business
to discuss, meeting was adjourned.

                                                                      
                                        Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
