TOWN OF WINTER

SPECIAL MEETING MINUTES                                         
JANUARY 29, 2014
A special meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was
called to order at 
11:00 am by Supervisor David Kinsley, present were supervisor Helen
Dennis, Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle and 10 citizens.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the options to fill the
board Chairman vacancy.

Supervisor Kinsley stated we have reviewed with the Wisconsin Towns
Association attorneys, the proper and legal procedures for filling
board vacancies and he asked the Clerk to read to the public the
information provided.

Clerk Lori Van Winkle read the information related to our situation,
due to death of our chairman we have a vacancy on our board.  Statutes
state we work to fill any vacancies; however, there are no deadlines
to meet in doing so.  Lori explained that in our situation with a 3
person boards it is important to fill the vacancy as soon as possible
as it leaves us with only 2 board members to vote on topics which
could result in failure of motions.
Lori explained that a board vacancy can be filled by a vote from the
remaining board members and the Clerk and the vacancy appointment to
an elected office are for the remainder of the term which would be
until April 2015.   For board made appointments, the minimum required
action is to vote on the appointee at a properly noticed board
meeting.  There are no other state requirements to advertise and or
interview.  The person appointed to fill board vacancies will need to
file and oath of office and be bonded if required.

Supervisor Kinsley asked the audience if there were any questions:  A
question was asked when the term expires, Supervisor Kinsley stated a
year from April, so this appointment would be for approximately 14
months.  A question was asked if we are appointing a Chairman or
Supervisor.  Supervisor Kinsley stated we would be appointing
Chairman.  A question was asked when we will be appointing the
chairman, Supervisor Kinsley stated at the February town meeting, as
it has to be done as a properly noticed meeting.  Supervisor Kinsley
stated today’s meeting was just informative so everyone knew the
procedures we are required to follow.  

Supervisor Kinsley then stated that he felt confident in moving up to
Chairman Position with the vote and support of the supervisor and
clerk, he stated with the organization and efficiency of our office he
felt comfortable taking the position.   A question was asked of
Supervisor Kinsley if he felt he had the time to take the position as
the previous chairman had set the bar pretty high as far as hours in
the office.  Supervisor Kinsley stated that is a concern of his and
his wife, but again, with the organization and efficiency of our
office, he was willing to give it a shot.  Additional comments were
that Supervisor Kinsley was certainly qualified for the position with
his years of experience on the board and functions when one of the
previous chairman vacationed in the winter months.  A question from
the audience was at the February meeting we would appoint a chairman
and would we also appoint a supervisor, Supervisor Kinsley stated he
believed so.  Supervisor Dennis stated both vacancies can be done at
the same meeting they just have to be separate motions.  

A question from the audience was we must then have a list of
candidates for the supervisor position.  Supervisor Kinsley stated we
have two weeks to put that list together and we have had people that
have expressed interest.  Supervisor Dennis stated that she had
several recommendations and that she personally called each of the
people recommended, just like she called you (John Andrews), to be
sure they were interested in the position.  Supervisor Kinsley stated
these verifications were done personally by Supervisor Dennis, it was
not done as the board, of which Supervisor Dennis agreed, she had made
these phone calls on her own.

A question was asked about the term of the position, which was
explained it would be for the remaining term to April 2015 and if that
person desired to run for the office, they could do so.  It was
brought up about the 4 elected positions up at the same time and that
it had been suggested in the past the positions be every other year. 
Supervisor Kinsley stated this would have been an ideal opportunity to
change this, but the statutes state it is for the remainder of the
term.  Supervisor Kinsley stated that we are not the only township
where all positions come up at the same time there are many in Sawyer
County this way.  Supervisor Dennis stated that she recalls this is
not the first time the Town has experienced this situation, not a
death, but a resignation that took place.  

There being no other questions or concerns, Supervisor Kinsley stated
this is our intent for the next meeting and asked for a motion to
adjourn, motion by Helen Dennis, second by David Kinsley to adjourn,
motion carried.

                                                  Lori Van Winkle,
Clerk
                                                  February 3, 2014
