Monthly Meeting			TOWN OF WINTER		        February 9, 2011

A regular meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was
called to order on February 9, 2011 with all board members and 37
citizens present.  The agenda and minutes of the January 12 meeting
were approved as presented.  Disbursements were approved.

Patrick Eirschele, application for variance for construction of
residence within setback from Barber Lake.  One letter of objection
received.  Helen Dennis moved to recommend approval, David Kinsley
seconded, all in favor.

The next item on the agenda was consideration of approval of
Conditional Use Permit for establishment of a camp for handicapped
veterans and leadership camp for youth, also on Barber Lake.  Most
members of the audience were property owners on Barber Lake and
several people voiced their objections to and questions about the
intended camp.  Objections included the possibility of hosting at-risk
kids, loss of tax revenue (as the property is applying for tax exempt
status), added traffic on lake and roads, potential impact on lake
water quality, and devaluation of adjoining properties.  Later in the
meeting, Craig Barrett, intended “purchaser” of the property arrived
with answers to many of the questions.  The kids camps would be
attended by a minimum number (6 to 8) of 9 to 11 year olds, no one at
risk, with the purpose of teaching them outdoor leadership skills in
hunting and fishing.  The  “camps” for handicapped veterans might be
only 1 or 2 persons per camp.  The property is already set up for
handicapped accessibility.  There would be no hunting on the property
which is only 11 acres, and no speed boating on the lake. The State
would be inspecting and monitoring the facility.  Mr Barrett said the
plan was written very broadly to meet the needs of both the public and
the seller.  Warren Johnson said that with a Conditional Use, the Town
could impose any number of conditions and requirements upon passage. 
The Comprehensive Planning Committee has been asked to hold a public
hearing on the topic.  Helen Dennis moved to postpone recommendation
to Sawyer County Zoning until March meeting, David Kinsley seconded,
all in favor.

Chairman Geist spoke about the possible purchase of a reclaimer, a
machine that will pull gravel out of ditches for re-use on the roads. 
The Town borrowed a machine a couple of years ago and found it
extremely beneficial in saving of gravel.  David Kinsley moved to
pursue purchase of a reclaimer, Helen Dennis seconded, motion carried.
 

Chairman Geist reported on a meeting he had attended with other
members of the Community Development Block Grant program, saying that
a new administrator has been hired for the program.  

Helen Dennis reported on sign information from the last Wisconsin
Towns County Unit meeting saying that the  county is responsible for
signs at Town Road/County Road intersections.   She asked that porta
potties for the boat landing be put on the agenda for the next
meeting.

Chairman Geist has been in touch with the attorney regarding the
“handicapped” dock on Lake Winter and said it looks pretty positive
that the Town will continue to have a dock there.  More information
will be available soon.

There being no further business, meeting adjourned.
