TOWN OF WINTER

MEETING MINUTES                                          DECEMBER 17,
2014

A regular 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 Helen Dennis and Ronald Barnaby, clerk treasurer Lori
Van Winkle and 7 audience members.

The pledge of allegiance was recited and Chairman Kinsley welcomed
everyone.

Motion by Ronald Barnaby, second by Helen Dennis to approve the agenda
as presented, motion carried.

Under Audience Recognition, Chairman Kinsley stated if anyone had
questions; please raise your hand to be recognized.

Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the
meeting minutes from November 12, 2014 as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning – 1 land use permit was received for $40,000.00.

Highway/Road Report – Chairman Kinsley commented with the freeze and
thaw plowing has been difficult for driveways.  Helen Dennis spoke
regarding road grants through the state that the town is working on
for West Lane, Parks Road to Town Line Road and Tepaske Lane.  Warren
Johnson commented it was good we are getting roads in shape down in
that area as the New Hayward Lakes Map now includes notations for “Elk
Viewing Area” and they anticipate more traffic in the area.

Unfinished Business:  Implements of Husbandry, chairman Kinsley stated
this began and was very popular in southern part of state and has now
moved to our areas.  He mentioned Dale Biesel from Farm Bureau spoke
last month at our meeting regarding the pros and cons and different
options.  Chairman Kinsley abstained from commenting and voting on the
issue since it does apply to him as a farmer.  Ronald Barnaby stated
in his opinion we should go with option F which is one of the two
options that were recommend by Wisconsin Towns Association last fall. 
This option would leave the majority of the decisions up to the local
municipality and would still require 23,000 lbs. per axel and 92,000
gross weight on our roads.  Helen Dennis agreed with Ron that this was
the best option for our township and she motioned to approve option F,
second by Ronald Barnaby, motion carried. Regarding Option F, local
authority applies and does not require an ordinance be established.

New Business:  Regarding July Jubilee support, Chamber President
Robert Schuck was present with a current financial report and
explained that they normally work on raising funds now in this year to
pay for next year’s events.  The fireworks are a large expense for
them.  They do have a multiple year contract which offers a discount
and a paid early discount but as shown on the financial report they
are still a little short of funds needed. At this time they have not
yet received support from the Town or the Village and at this time
they are requesting release of the budgeted support funds.   Helen
Dennis asked about a transfer of funds from July Jubilee Committee to
Chamber control done in April 2014.  Robert explained there were two
accounts associated with the July Jubilee committee, the second
account was unknown who it was associated with, it could have been the
Lions Club as they were active with the July Jubilee for years or it
could have been attached to the Village somehow.  When the Chamber
took over as the fiscal agent it was transferred to the Chamber to be
included under the blanket of the Chamber as the fiscal agent.  The
account for July Jubilee donations and expenses is still under July
Jubilee and checks should be issued to July Jubilee so the records
reflect this and there is no mingling of funds with Chamber funds. 
Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve release of
the support funds for the July Jubilee, motion carried.  Robert Schuck
thanked the board.

The town has 4 new election inspectors to approve.  Training took
place on November 6th, 2014; they signed their oaths and are ready to
work in our next election.  Mary Lou Steele, Mary Dornbusch, Linda
Brown and Barbara Miller.  Motion was made by Ronald Barnaby, second
by Helen Dennis to approve the 4 new election inspectors, motion
carried.  

Authorization for budget adjustments – Chairman Kinsley explained this
is a practice that is done each year in the event there are budget
categories that may have run over some.  The board approves this for
the treasurer to make the adjustments where needed.  Currently we
would need to adjust $19,077.89 in funds but there may be additional
amounts needed as the December billings have not yet been received. 
We take funds from other accounts with balances and make the
adjustments.  Currently the highway equipment fund has enough to cover
these expenses and the transfer will come from that category. Motion
by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the necessary
budget adjustments, motion carried.

Correspondence/Contacts – A letter was received and read from Donna
Knuckey our Winter Public Library Director thanking the Town for their
financial support to the Library.

Approval of Disbursements – Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald
Barnaby to approve the disbursements as presented, motion carried.

Audience member William Voight asked about the check issued to Sawyer
County Zoning, it was explained there was an error on the number of
acres at one of our pits and the reclamation fee had to be
recalculated and difference paid.  The county has corrected this now
in their records.  Warren Johnson commented to take a good look at
what we reclaim because we only pay on the portion of the pit that is
opened so fees are much less.  Chairman Kinsley explained that most of
our pits only have an acre open so it doesn’t get much less but Warren
is correct on that and beneficial to know.

Next meeting date will be January 14, 2015, motion by Ronald Barnaby,
second by Helen Dennis to adjourn, motion carried.    
                                                                      
                                          Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
                                                                      
                                           December 30, 2014
