TOWN OF WINTER MEETING MINUTES                                        
                                                DECEMBER 14, 2016


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 board members Ronald Barnaby and Terry
Patenaude and Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle.  Also present were 2
audience members.  The Pledge of Allegiance was recited and Chairman
Kinsley welcomed everyone.

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

Chairman Kinsley stated regarding audience recognition, if there are
any questions to raise your hand to be recognized.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the meeting minutes
as presented, from November 9, 2016 regular meeting and November 18,
2016 special meeting, motion carried.

License / Zoning:  Chairman Kinsley stated the Town received a letter
from Sawyer County Zoning regarding Crazy Horse dam failure notice,
which he did not believe had any impact on the Town of Winter, but
stated there will be a public hearing on December 16th at the Sawyer
County courthouse at 8:30 a.m. if anyone is interested in attending.  
Notice was received that David King and Constance Hebzynskis’ zoning
change was ratified by the county from commercial to residential
recreational II.

Highway / Road Report:  The crew has been plowing, they will attempt
driveways tomorrow, however Chairman Kinsley advised them if they find
it’s too soft and they will tear things up then they should stop. 
After plowing some driveways, it sounded like it was going ok and
hopefully getting into the driveways will help to freeze them down.

Unfinished business:  There was none.

New Business:  Approval of election workers for next election term;
Lori provided the board a list of the current election workers and
verified they have all met their training requirements.  At this time
there are no new workers.  Chairman Kinsley stated it’s been a
formality to approve our election workers for each election term,
motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the current election
workers for the next election term, motion carried.

Approve and authorize year end budget adjustments:  Chairman Kinsley
stated this is a common procedure done each year to balance the budget
areas that we may have gone over with the excess funds in other areas
of the budget.  Total adjustments at this time are around $22,000.00. 
Lori added that not all bills are in yet for 2016 and this figure
could change some.  Chairman Kinsley added that we secured a loan for
the grader in March of 2016 and the budget is looking like we may have
enough funds to pay that loan off before the end of the year.  Motion
by Patenaude to authorize the clerk-treasurer to make the year end
budget adjustments, second by Barnaby, motion carried.

Discuss/Act on Tower Road temporary snowmobile route:  Dale Beissel
called Chairman Kinsley a couple weeks ago indicating with the wet
year and all the flooding problems on the trails they have not been
able to get necessary repairs done and requested we approve the same
temporary route we did last season for snowmobile use on Tower road. 
They are hoping to have better conditions next year and will be able
to get repairs done.  Chairman Kinsley stated this is the exact same
route we approved temporarily last season.  There were no board
concerns, motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve/grant the
temporary snowmobile route on Tower road as last season, motion
carried.  Lori advised since this was being done with in the same year
as the previous ordinance, it was not necessary to create a new
ordinance; we can extend the dates of the original ordinance.


Correspondence/Contacts:  There have been a few new land use permits,
Ron Barnaby has been inspecting driveway permit applications also new
driveway snowplowing inquires.  Lori and Deb finished up taxes and
they were mailed Dec.12th a day earlier than last year.

Approval of Disbursements:  Supervisor Patenaude asked what the bucket
was for from Chippewa Valley Equipment.  Chairman Kinsley explained it
was a 4 in 1 bucket that was purchased because our existing bucket was
too large.  Dave Martin planned to cut the old bucket down to use as a
front blade on the new grader, stating that front blade is nice to
have for certain jobs.  Supervisor Patenaude asked about Bills Tire
and Service bill, Chairman Kinsley explained they put wider tires on
the new grader which required wider rims and Dave Martin made a deal
with them on 4 rims. Because the grader is front wheel drive they
needed a larger inside hub, they searched around and couldn’t find
much and Bills tire could make them and that is what they did.  Motion
by Barnaby, second by Kinsley to approve the disbursements as
presented; check # 18138 through 18157 were approved in the amount of
$16,149.93.

Board of Concerns:  Supervisor Patenaude stated that tomorrow night is
the meeting at the county regarding the ambulance study and a
preliminary report will be given.  He added that it will be really
interesting because of those who attended the local ambulance meeting,
75% of the audience in a “vague” word were some kind of a politician;
he stated the audience consisted of surrounding town and village board
members and county board members and there really weren’t too many
general public people at the meeting, maybe 10 or 15 people, and it
was the general public that had concerns.   Supervisor Barnaby
responded that with two different petitions that have been submitted
to the County, one with over 500 signatures on it, certainly the
county board members know what the feelings of the people are, wishing
for adequate services and Barnaby stated he didn’t feel it was
necessary for all 530 people to be in attendance at that meeting to
express it further.  Patenaude stated they just expected more people
and had set up the fire hall for more people.  

Chairman Kinsley stated since January is typically a cold month; he
asked the boards thoughts about having the January meeting at 3:30 in
the afternoon instead of an evening meeting?  He asked if that would
work with Supervisor Patenaude who said yes, but if they are plowing
snow he probably wouldn’t make it but the odds of that happening are
slim.  Next meeting date was set for January 11, 2017 at 3:30 P.M.  

With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned.


                                                                      
                              Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
                                                                      
                              December 22, 2016
