The regular business meeting of the Town of Winter was called to order
at 7:00 P.M. by Chairman David Kinsley.  Present were board members
Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude, clerk treasurer Lori Van Winkle
and 4 audience members.  Chairman Kinsley welcomed everyone.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the agenda as
presented, motion carried.  

Chairman Kinsley stated to the audience, if you have questions, please
raise your hand to be recognized.

Motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to approve the meeting minutes
as presented from the regular meeting June 7, 2016 and special meeting
June 24, 2016, motion carried.

License-Zoning:  Renewal of 3 year Conditional Use Permit for WI
Flambeau River State Forest was presented for Price Creek Pit.  The
board were all familiar with the pit, there were no objections, motion
by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the 3 year renewal of the
conditional use permit for WI Flambeau River State Forest, Price Creek
Pit, motion carried.  A Special Use Permit for John Gregeriou for
construction of a dwelling in an A-1 zone district was reviewed.  The
board had no concerns, motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to
approve the Special Use Permit for John Gregeriou, motion carried.

Highway/Road Report:  Chairman Kinsley commented that every week
something else seems to pop up from the May 31, 2016 rain storm.  The
board discussed areas affected by the heavy rains, in some areas due
to the lay of the land, some water is still sitting until it absorbs
into the ground because there is no place to dig ditches or trenches. 
The crew is doing what they can in these situations; it’s just been
difficult with the continual excessive rain falls. Smith Road is done;
they will add more crushed gravel in the fall.  Supervisor Patenaude
asked if we had enough signs for high water etc. Chairman Kinsley will
bring that to the attention of the crew.

Unfinished Business:  We did not receive any gravel crushing proposals
from our ad.  Dave Martin received a call today from company who
stated they had dug a few test holes and had concerns there wasn’t
enough to crush, Dave Martin stated he was not sure they were digging
in the correct area, so he and Gary plan to get down there next week
and dig some holes themselves to see what’s in there, once we know
what they find, we will move forward.

New Business:  Town Insurance Review – Marc Strapon from Holden
Insurance was present to review the proposal he’d provided to the
Town.  He explained he did as close to an apples to apples comparison
as he could for the buildings, liability, equipment and vehicles and
also explained other policy enhancements.  Marc explained the Workers
Comp insurance would be done through the State, rates/costs would be
the same, however they did not pay a dividend. Marc Strappon thanked
the board for the opportunity and he left the meeting.   Board
discussion took place regarding coverages and costs, it was determined
overall we would have the same and/or added coverage and less premium
costs, the change would be effective 8-1-16 and the board will also
review the equipment values to be sure they are inline.  Motion by
Kinsley, second by Barnaby to approve changing the Towns insurance to
Holden Agency based upon the proposal presented, motion carried.  

Review/Act on Flood Aid Petitions:  Chairman Kinsley explained we are
required to approve petitions to request flood aid for storm damages
that occurred 5-31-16.  Lance Burger from the State DOT inspected our
sites with Dave Martin; he offered suggestions on changes and or
modifications for repairs.  Lori had prepared a preliminary costs
sheet for the damage/repairs for three locations we are petitioning
for.  Motion by Barnaby, second by Kinsley to approve the petitions
for flood aid through the State.

The Winter Public Library is in need of a representative from the Town
of Winter, Terry Patenaude agreed to be the rep, motion by Kinsley,
second by Barnaby to approve Terry Patenaude as a representative for
the Town of Winter on the Library Board, motion carried.

Correspondence/Contacts:   Chairman Kinsley asked the board their
opinion on how to handle the replacement of driveway culverts on
private driveways.  He stated that with the heavy rainfalls we’ve
experienced many property owners driveway culverts that were in bad
condition had failed and needed to be replaced.  There is a WTA
meeting in Spider Lake in two weeks that will be addressing some of
the road/flood issues and it was agreed to wait to see what they
advise at this meeting to decide how to handle these situations. 
Supervisor Patenaude asked if the buoys on Lake Winter have shown up
yet? They washed away from the high water from the storm 5-31-16. 
Chairman Kinsley stated he spoke with Mike who planned to go look for
them, if they are not found we will need to get replacement buoys.

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions regarding the
disbursements, motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to approve the
disbursements as presented, motion carried.

There were no questions, concerns or complaints from the audience
members.  It was mentioned what a nice fireworks display took place at
Reds and some discussion took place on concerns of the debris from the
fireworks and the safety of the people and buildings from this debris.
 It was mentioned we may need to caution the owners about this for
future events.

Next meeting date was set for August 10, 2016.

With no further business to address, meeting was adjourned.

                                                                      
                                        Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
