January 10, 2018 Monthly Meeting Minutes

TOWN BOARD MEETING  TOWN OF WINTER  N4680 CTY RD W  WINTER, WI
JANUARY 10, 2018

Chairman David Kinsley called the meeting to order at 4:30 p.m. 
Present were board members Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude,
Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle and 3 audience members.
The Pledge of Allegiance was recited, Chairman Kinsley welcomed
everyone.

Hayward Lakes Visitor & Convention Bureau representative requested
moving them up on the agenda, the board was in favor, motion by
Barnaby/Patenaude to move them from 9 a. to 3 a. on our agenda, motion
carried.

Sherry Beckman from the Hayward Lakes Visitor and Convention Bureau
spoke regarding the proposed Room Tax for municipalities.  They are
proposing a 4% room tax on rentals located in our municipality, of
this 4% room tax, the municipalities could keep 30% of the 4% to spend
how they choose and the balance would go to the Hayward Lakes VCB who
must use the funds strictly for advertising/marketing purposes.  
Lengthy discussion took place between the audience members, board
members and Ms. Beckwith.    Board member Ron Barnaby stated of the
Winter tax payers that would be impacted by the 4% room tax, not one
he has spoken with were in favor of supporting this and he feels that
unless those people that would be impacted are asked about it, he is
not willing to support this until he hears them say they are in favor
of it.  Board member Terry Patenaude added that if our Chamber were to
back it and our business owners want it, then it would be something to
think about.  Chairman Kinsley stated he spoke to three different
business owners and they were definitely not in favor of it.  
Audience member and local Realtor Bob Biller stated that the 30% the
town would receive is peanuts and that it will cost more than that
just for the administrative duties the clerk will need to do with the
work involved with it.  Bob also stated tourists that come to our area
are brought in by advertising done by local business owners who have
spent money for other advertising to bring those tourists to the
Winter area.  Bob added that tourists spend money in our area which
benefits our other businesses and adding another tax could detour
tourists to other areas and then we all suffer and lose as a
community, he added he is not in favor of the room tax.  Bob expressed
to Sherry Beckman that their organization has its merits, but rather
than push a room tax on people and create additional work for the
Townships he suggested they should contact all the business owners to
join their association and their dues would generate additional
revenues.  Sherry replied they tried but has not been able to locate a
list of owners of these businesses, Bob offered to help with a list. 
Sherry thanked the board for their time.

December 13, 2017 meeting minutes approved as presented by
Barnaby/Patenaude, motion carried.

There were no licenses or zoning to discuss.  

Highway/Road Report:  Audience members thanked the board and crew for
the great job on the roads this winter.  The crew has been brushing
several roads and also hauling rock off of Swards fields for future
projects.  

There was no unfinished business or correspondence and contacts to
discuss.

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions regarding the
disbursements, motion by Patenaude/Barnaby to approve check # 18802
through check #18817 in the amount of $15,602.80, motion carried.

With no further business to discuss, next meeting date was set for
February 14, 2018 at 4:30 pm. Meeting adjourned.    
                                                  Lori Van Winkle,
