Highway / Road Report:  Crack Sealing has been completed
satisfactorily.  Culverts have been purchased through Rusk County
Highway Department as they offered the best prices.  Work continues on
Cemetery Road, once completed they will be graveling some roads and
replacing culverts and various other smaller jobs that need to be done
before they begin another big project.

Unfinished Business:    The little league donation that had been
tabled from last month’s meeting was discussed.  John Holm presented
the board with a revised Little League financial report they still
have expenses to pay that have not been billed yet.  He stated they
will be completing the concrete work in the concession stand that was
not done last year of which they will incur expenses and they would
also like to purchase a pitching machine at a cost of approximately
$600.00.  They currently borrow one and have approached the owner to
purchase it; the owner does not want to sell. Helen Dennis expressed
that the town approved the cost of the concrete last year, John agreed
however, when the lumber yard closed the concrete work had not been
completed.  The town paid the lumber yard for the actual bills
incurred.  David Kinsley stated John has answered his question of what
they plan to do with the funds and with that, motion by David Kinsley,
second by Helen Dennis to approve a donation of the budgeted amount of
$500.00 to the Little League, motion carried.  John thanked the
board.

There has been a time change for Board of Review on August 29, 2013. 
Time was changed from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Emergency Management director Pat Sanchez was introduced.  Pat stated
she is trying to get around to all towns and villages to assist them
with their Emergency Operation Plans and get things updated.    She
has found that many municipalities do not have plans in place so she
has a State Grant available for these plans to offer training in
September in Hayward, WI and would request that at least one official
would attend.  Sign up can be done by going to the County Website
under ER Government.  She also stated they are working on improvements
to expand their alert system.  She emphasized she is here to help and
feel free to contact her any time.   

County Supervisor Warren Johnson was in the audience, Supervisor
Kinsley asked him if he had anything to share.  Warren stated he was
very enthused with the new Emergency Management Director and has seen
many positive changes taking place with the ambulance services etc. 
Supervisor Kinsley expressed how impressed he was with the emergency
services response to a situation at their residence last week, from
the time they called 911; it took 4 minutes for a paramedic to arrive.
 It appears things are improving with the EMS services.

The Town in the past has allowed a steel toe boot allowance for the
town crew workers, in the amount of $75.00 each.  A motion was made by
Helen Dennis, second by David Kinsley to approve a $75.00 allowance
for steel toed boots for our town crew members, motion carried.  

Regarding Approval of a replacement pickup truck; Supervisor Kinsley
stated that since Chairman Genrich had handled all the correspondence
with these, he’d prefer to wait for him to review and approve the
purchase of the pickup.  Helen Dennis stated she felt we should act on
this because prices may increase as they already had once already. 
Discussion took place with additional questions; it was decided to
table this until it could be reviewed more with Chairman Genrich. 
Motion by Helen Dennis, second by David Kinsley to table the review of
pickup trucks until Chairman Genrich could be involved, motion
carried.

There were no other correspondence or contacts to discuss.

Approval of disbursements:  Motion by Helen Dennis, second by David
Kinsley to approve the disbursements as presented, check #15986
through #16004 in the amount of $70,200.46 was approved, motion
carried.  Account Balances as of June 30, 2013  - General Account
$47,330.61, MMA Savings Account $187,754.53, LGIP Machinery Account
$.10, LGIP General Account $2473.60.

General Public Concerns: Audience member Kurt Swedberg questioned the
disbursement paid to Helen Dennis regarding dam maintenance, stating
it had been decided at the annual meeting that the workers would not
get paid.  Supervisor Kinsley agreed, that is what was said at the
annual meeting and he questioned this also, so he asked Helen to
explain this.  Helen stated the county pays ½ of the expense and
that it was discussed with Dale Olson that there is a spoken agreement
but nothing in writing regarding it.  Dale thought there was something
in writing and that absolutely we are entitled to being paid.  Dale
said he would put this on the agenda for the county board meeting. 
Chairman Genrich attended the county meeting; it was approved and they
made a contract.  Kurt asked if it was approved for elected officials
to receive pay, Helen replied yes because they need someone to do this
on the days the town crew members were not working, and a board member
was the best choice.  She added that now the Town crew members are
doing it on weekends too.  Kurt  asked who was involved in the
decision on the pay; Helen replied the County and Jim (Chairman
Genrich).  Kurt stated as was determined before, it is a violation of
State Statutes for the town board to set their own wage.  Helen
replied that the County set the wage; Kurt responded “NO” the town was
involved in it.  Helen replied Jim (chairman Genrich was at the
meeting and agreed on the wage the county offered).  The county pays
½ and the Town pays ½.  Kurt Swedberg ended the discussion
with “OK, as long as you are comfortable with that”.   There was no
further discussion and no other business to discuss.
Next meeting date was set for August 14, 2013. Motion by Helen Dennis,
second by David Kinsley to adjourn, motion carried.

                                                 Lori Van Winkle,
clerk
