TOWN OF WINTER
MEETING MINUTES                                                       
                              JANUARY 14, 2015

A regular meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was
called to order at 7:00 pm by Chairman David Kinsley.  Present were
board members Helen Dennis and Ronald Barnaby, clerk treasurer Lori
Van Winkle and 5 audience members.

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

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

Audience Recognition:  Chairman Kinsley introduced Jen Wergeland from
Winter School Community Outreach.  Jen provided the board a list of
upcoming activities, events and fundraisers taking place in January
and February, she mentioned they also have a Facebook page that is
updated regularly.  Jen reviewed the numerous activities coming up and
encouraged everyone, school families and community members to come out
and see what’s happening.  There will be classes on various things, a
sledding party, donkey basketball, a presentation called “Bully
Proof”.   Some of the ongoing activities offered are adult volleyball,
open gym and basketball, cardio & weight room and a parent and child
play group.  The intent of their program is to let people know that
school is open for business and encourage people to get involved and
see what’s happening and the school is open to the public for
fundraising activities at no charge.

Audience member and longtime EMT Louise Ladenthin was given the floor,
she stated she was here to update the board on ambulance services in
our area.  She thanked the board for signing the petition and reminded
them of it and the Resolution done by the school and reported to date
nothing has changed; stating the ambulance is not here much and when
it is here she has been told they cannot get a crew to run it.  She
informed the board that the previous Ambulance Director that caused
the severe hemorrhaging in the program is now gone and a new director
is being hired.  She stated this now provides an opportunity for us to
remind the County of the petition and school resolution and to get to
work to restore our ambulance services.  Louise stated in her opinion
ambulance service from Radisson and Stone Lake providing services to
the Southeast end of our County is just not sufficient.  We are a
recreational area with numerous outdoor sports and silent sports that
we tout about on our Chamber site and invite the public to come here
to enjoy and we are responsible to provide public safety for them.  We
also have a public school here, we have children in our school with
juvenile diabetes, seizure disorders with parents who may be working
out of town and no ambulance services, and this makes no sense…  We
had an ambulance here for 67 years that did provide the services when
needed and now we don’t.  Louise stated our public ambulance service
has changed from a service to a business doing hospital transfers,
leaving our area at risk and we need to contact our county officials
again to remind them of the circumstances and work to create an answer
to this problem. Helen Dennis responded to Louise regarding the 2
meetings held here in Winter regarding the ambulance, the meeting with
the county board members here regarding the ambulance and the numerous
things we have done only to be told by the county board that this was
the first time they had heard of any of these problems or they were
not aware of these problems, Helen stated the issues have been brought
to the county boards attention and she is not sure what else we can
do;  she feels it is time for the county board to step up.     The
board thanked Louise.

Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the
meeting minutes from December 17, 2014.

License/Zoning:  1 land use permit was received in the amount of
$17,000.00 for a screen porch addition.

Highway/Road report: Chairman Kinsley stated he feels our town crew
has been doing a good job on our roads this winter.  He mentioned
earlier in the year he did ask them to be conservative, but do not
short areas that need it with the sanding as we used more last year
than expected and prices have increased.  If there are bad areas
please let us know.  Helen Dennis stated she and Dave Martin will be
meeting with Jim Halvorson to discuss work on West Lane and grant
details.

Unfinished business:  There was none

New business:  There was none

Correspondence/Contacts:  An email was received from Mary Ann Andrews
giving her resignation from the Library board as they have sold their
home and will be moving.  Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald
Barnaby to approve acceptance of Mary Ann Andrews resignation from the
Library board, motion carried.  

Approval of Disbursements:  Motion by Ronald Barnaby second by Helen
Dennis to approve the disbursements as presented, motion carried. 
Check # 16941 through # 16956 was approved in the amount of $6,891.88.
 Account balances 12-31-14 General account balance $44,098.40, MMA
account balance $808,727.32, LGIP account balance $59,673.74. 

Board Concerns:  Chairman Kinsley mentioned that Warranty work is
being done on Kenworth trucks.  Chairman Kinsley also stated he would
like to change our meeting dates to the 3rd Wednesday of the month as
it works better with billing cycles etc.  Chairman Kinsley mentioned
we had furnace problems at the shop, we have a price on a replacement
furnace – 70 BTU, 95% efficient with a 10 year warranty and
installation $2956.00, the board agreed to replace the furnace, and we
will contact Kyle Kujac for replacement.  Our crew will be attending
MSHA training March 19, 2015.

There was no further business to discuss, motion by Ronald Barnaby,
second by Helen Dennis to adjourn, motion carried.

                                                                      
                           Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
