TOWN OF WINTER
MEETING MINUTES                                                       
                               FEBRUARY 8, 2017

The regular business meeting of the Town of Winter Board of
Supervisors was called to order
At 3:45 p.m. by Chairman David Kinsley.  Present were Supervisors
Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude, Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle
and 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.

Regarding audience recognition, Chairman Kinsley stated please raise
your hand to be recognized.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the meeting minutes
from January 11, 2017 as presented, motion carried.

License / Zoning:  The 3 year conditional use permit for Flambeau
River State Forest gravel pit has been sent from the county for
approval.  The board members are familiar with the pit and there were
no objections.  Motion by Barnaby, second by Kinsley to approve the
renewal of the 3 year conditional use permit, motion carried.

Highway / Road Report:   A comment was that itís been an unusual
winter in Winter, WI with snow  and rain.

Unfinished Business:  There was none.  Chairman Kinsley announced that
Lori was finished with taxes and it balanced to the penny.  

New Business:  There was none.  Chairman Kinsley addressed audience
member and County Board member Helen Dennis and asked if she had any
County information she would like to share? Helen stated regarding the
Sawyer County Ambulance study, Mr. Williams had provided the county
board members a preliminary report and the final report is expected
next Thursday. Helen expressed not everything can be done at once and
going with full time EMTís/Paramedics would have to be a trial basis
to see how it goes. Helen shared she WAS NOT in favor of construction
of a new $400,000.00 building, adding that is a lot of money!  Helen
stated she had come up with some of her own ideas and had emailed them
to the County today and is waiting to see how they respond.  Her
opinion and idea was to eliminate construction of that $400,000.00
building.  She said an inspection was done of the Winter Fire
Department building and it is equipped except for an exhaust system. 
Radisson would need to start from scratch with a building etc. Helen
stated going full time means the EMTs/Paramedics are out of the
station in 2 minutes no matter where they are located and this means
they will still improve response times. Helen stated we have 9
ambulances, however they are   aging and updates are needed.  She
suggested they use the $400,000.00 to purchase 3 new ambulances
($330,000.0). There is also an ambulance in the current budget which
would make 4 and once the repairs are done to the one involved in the
accident they will have 5 good units to work with.  Eventually they
could go from 9 ambulances to 7, placing 3 in Hayward, 2 in Winter, 1
in Round Lake and 1 in Stone Lake.  This would reduce budget costs for
insurance and licensing too.  She added  she did not know what an
exhaust system for the Winter Fire Department would cost, but perhaps
there could be some negotiations between the Fire Board and the County
regarding the use of the ambulance rent payments until the exhaust
system is paid off;  Helen reiterated that was just an idea.  Chairman
Kinsley asked Helen to keep us posted on the progress.   

Correspondence / Contacts:   A letter was received from Donna Knuckey,
Winter Library Director thanking the Town for their financial support.
 

Approval of Disbursements:   There were no questions regarding the
disbursements, motion by Kinsley second by Barnaby to approve the
disbursements as presented, motion carried.  Ck# 18246 through #18263
were approved in the amount of $17,913.62.

Board Concerns:   Terry Patenaude stated he had a couple;  ask Dave
Martin if he will put a stop ahead sign on Olson Road on the hill
before highway 70.  Also the double arrow sign at the Rustic is faded.
  Ron Barnaby stated he would just like to thank Helen Dennis for her
continued work on getting the ambulance back here in Winter, WI, Ron
stated he knows she has put a lot of time into it and thinks he speaks
for everyone in the Township that we are grateful for what you are
doing Helen.
Chairman Kinsley agreed and commented to keep plugging along with it
Helen.  Audience member Butch Ladenthin had questions regarding town
equipment that Chairman Kinsley answered. 

Regarding the next meeting date, Chairman Kinsley asked if the other
board members have heard any complaints about the earlier meeting
times, and if not the earlier meeting was favored by him and asked how
they felt, both Barnaby and Patenaude were in favor of the 3:45
meeting time.  
The March 8, 2017 meeting date was set for 3:45 p.m.  With no further
business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned.

                                                                      
                                 Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
