A regular meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was

Winkle and 3 audience members.  

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited and chairman Kinsley welcomed

Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the
meeting minutes from January 14, 2015 as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning:  1 land use permit was received in the amount of
$55,000.00 for home additions.  A variance request has been received
for Timothy Laufenberg for construction of a garage less than 40’ to
the rear lot line. Mike Gehrke is one of the property owners and was
present, he stated he and his wife had no objections.  There were no
objections from the other surrounding property owners.  Motion by
Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the variance
request, motion carried.

Highway/Road Report:  Audience member Terry Patenaude expressed thanks
to Town Crew member David Martin for coming to the fire scene Saturday
night and sanding the area for the fire department.  Board Member Ron
Barnaby attended a meeting with the County Hwy Department January 22,
2015 to represent the Town regarding the Hanson Road Bridge Project. 
Ron reported four firms gave presentations for the project.  The firm
of his choice was SEH/Northern Wisconsin Based Engineers.  Ron
expressed this firm had done several other bridges in the area and are
very familiar with the fluctuations and high water levels and they
were the only company that included heavy rip rap on the bridge wing
walls and approaches. Ron reported it’s a lengthy project with
coordination of everything involved and the design part could take 16
to 24 months.  Due to environmental impacts the DOT and DNR are
involved and road right of ways and easements will need to be reviewed
and utilities will need to be moved.   It would be ideal if they could
avoid building a temporary bridge as this would save several thousands
of dollars and it would cut the project completion time down, but that
could involve the purchase of additional easements, but this is a
common practice in these situations. The tentative date for the
project is Summer of 2017 and it is now in the States hands for final
approval.  Audience member Warren Johnson stated that Northern
Wisconsin Based Engineers was the firm that was involved with the
automatic dam gates and should have been sued, but he realized that
was several years ago and they are now working with SEH.  Ron replied
that it may be a little off the subject, but in his opinion the
automatic gates at the dam was not a good decision from day one mainly
because the dam cannot be controlled by someone in Hayward, WI after 4
inches of rain and with opening only 1 gate, it was necessary to open
both gates to accommodate the rain fall.  Chairman Kinsley responded
that Ron does speak from experience on this having worked with it for
years. Chairman Kinsley thanked Ron.  Helen Dennis commented that at a
recent WTA meeting she and Ron attended, they learned of the TRID
program (a road improvement grant program).  Helen stated that if a
road project is $100,000.00 or more, which most are, the TRID plan
will pay on an 80/20 basis and we need to watch for this and apply for
it.  Helen Dennis also commented on the West Lane Grant, stating it is
in and she’s been told it is looking good, she stated this will be a
90/10 grant.  If this grant is approved she determined that with other
grants the town has received we would be close to $200,000.00 in grant
funds received for the town.    

Unfinished Business:  At last month’s meeting there was discussion
regarding the availability of 911 ambulance services in the Winter
area, the petition that had been circulated and presented with a
letter from the Town to the County Board in July 2014.  To date the
Town has not received a response to the letter and it was decided a
follow up letter to the County Board was in order.  A recent letter
was sent to all County Board Members and to the new ambulance director
Eric Nilson requesting the status of 911 ambulance services at this
time.  Eric Nilson was also invited to attend our Fire Board Meeting
which he agreed to.  The meeting is February 25, 2015 at the Winter
Fire Hall at 7:00 p.m. for those who would like to attend to hear
more.

New Business:  Chairman Kinsley commented things have been quiet; Lori
has the tax settlements done.  

Correspondence/Contacts:  Chairman Kinsley announced a Cat/Dog
vaccination clinic that will be held at the Exeland Fire Hall March
6th and 7th.  

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions regarding the
disbursements, motion by Ronald Barnaby, second by Helen Dennis to
approve the disbursements as presented, motion carried.  Check #17018
through Check # 17041 was approved in the amount of $49,370.66. 
Account balances 1-31-15 General account balance $15,519.82, MMA
account balance $976,664.78, LGIP account balance $139,633.75.

Board Concerns/Audience Concerns: There were none.  Next meeting date
was set for March 18, 2015.  Chairman Kinsley thanked the audience for
attending and adjourned the meeting.

                                                 Lori Van Winkle,
Clerk
