MEETING MINUTES                                                       
                                   JULY 9, 2014

A regular meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was
called to order by Chairman David Kinsley at 7:00 P.M.  Present were
board members Helen Dennis and Ronald Barnaby, clerk- treasurer Lori
Van Winkle and 4 audience members.  The Pledge of Allegiance was
recited, Chairman Kinsley welcomed everyone.

Chairman Kinsley stated we received a late arriving special use permit
from the county that would need to be added to the agenda for
approval.  Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve
the agenda with the addition of the late arriving special use permit,
motion carried.

Chairman Kinsley stated if anyone would like to speak, please raise
your hand for recognition.

Motion by Helen Dennis second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the meeting
minutes from June 11, 2014 as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning:   There were no License items to discuss.  Under
Zoning, a Special Use Permit for James Smiezek to construct a building
in an A-1 zone district was discussed.  Property is on State Hwy 70
east of the Village and shares a driveway with North Central Power
Companies Garage.  The building will be a 24 x 20 cabin on a slab. 
Board members were familiar with the location; there were no
objections, motion by Ronald Barnaby second by Helen Dennis to approve
the Special Use Permit for James Smiezek, motion carried.

Highway/Road Report:  Town Crew is currently working on Sundling Road
rain has delayed their progress some.  Jim Wiley has begun road side
mowing.  Gary Kielcheski and equipment will be heading to Draper to
work with them on a job, Dave Martin and Bob Melchert will be hauling
gravel to several locations.

Unfinished Business:  A letter was drafted to the County Board
regarding the return of the Winter Ambulance at the Winter Fire Hall. 
The board reviewed the letter.  Helen Dennis commented that she would
like the letter to include language similar to the language of the
petition that has been circulated related to rate of pay and having
our own EMTs staff it.  Chairman Kinsley by stating “our own” EMT’s
limits us and he’d like to see it broader to include all EMT’s
available.  Discussion took place and it was decided to remove the
word “our” EMT’s from the letter.  Audience member Dale Stotesbury
commented that when you are an EMT you are a “Wisconsin”  EMT and he
agreed that you cannot  individualize who staffs your station, but
what is important is that is staffed by a State certified  EMT.  

At our last meeting a request to open Slattery Road for ATV use had
been presented and discussed.  We now have the ordinance prepared for
approval to open Slattery Road for ATV use.  Motion by Ronald Barnaby,
second by Helen Dennis to approve the ordinance to open Slattery Road
for ATV use, motion carried.  Posting of the road was discussed,
Richard and Ida Kinsley were in the audience and indicated they had
been at the last ATV Club meeting and if the ATV club did not post it,
they agreed they would post it.

Audience member Dale Stotesbury asked if there has ever been any
consideration to opening all roads in the Town of Winter for ATV use. 
Chairman Kinsley stated it has been talked about, but there are
several citizens who do not want all roads open.  Dale mentioned a
conversation he had with a property owner who has a UTV who did not
know that CTY HWY W from Lake Winter Road going south is not open for
ATV use; it is open going north to the Village of Winter only.  Dale
would like it Cty W open to ATVs further than Lake Winter Road.  It
was explained to Dale that since W is a County road, we have no
authority on this, and it must go before the County and ATV club
first.  Dale expressed that he had talked to the county and to Lori at
the Town and felt he was getting the run around.  Helen Dennis stated
we had received his inquiry and we have started the process as far as
we can by advising both the County and ATV clubs that we have had
inquires to open W South and to consider opening it as far as
Thornapple.  Lori also had a response from Gary Gedart County Hwy
commissioner that she read out loud regarding how to proceed with this
and contacts.  Audience member Richard Kinsley stated from his
understanding of the discussion at the last ATV club meeting, Lori’s
request has been received by them and it is in the works and looked
probable it would be approved.

Correspondence/Contacts:  An email was received from Gary Gedart
Sawyer County Hwy Commissioner regarding opening Hwy W South for ATVs.
  A Thank You letter was received from the Senior Citizen Center
thanking the town for their support with their LP gas costs.   A
letter was received and read out loud from Sawyer County Snowmobile
and ATV Alliance regarding their 30 year celebration that will take
place September 13, 2014 at the Sawyer Co. Fairgrounds.  
A request was received from Steve and Diane Keupper representing the
Southern Sawyer County Sportsman’s Club to be added to the Towns
August Agenda to speak about improvements at their site.   An
invitation for a meeting regarding Implements of Husbandry and
Municipal Operations will be held in Ladysmith, WI July 14, 2014 at
the Rusk Co. Library from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.  
We’ve had two calls from property owners inquiring about NO THRU signs
and NO DUMPING signs near their properties.

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions related to the
disbursements, motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to
approve the disbursements as presented, Check # 16484 through 16648 in
the amount of $21,432.25 was approved, motion carried.  Account
balances as of June 30, 2014 General Account $12,494.05, MMA Savings
Account $153,290.08, LGIP General Account $82,915.06.

Board Concerns:  Chairman Kinsley stated we only had one complaint
regarding Fire Works and it was vague.  The Town placed the old dock
no longer used at the shop with a for sale sign on it, we had two
inquires.  Under previous permission at annual meetings we are able to
dispose of old property and it has been brought up at a previous
meeting therefore, we will open the inquires and get rid of unused
equipment.  David Brad offered $106.00 and Don Mussehl offered
$100.00, a motion was made by Ronald Barnaby, second by Helen Dennis
to accept David Brads
Offer of $106.00, motion carried.

Chairman Kinsley spoke with LP providers for the upcoming season. 
Lakes Gas pre buy is $1.699, Rusk County Farm Supply $1.54.  Motion by
Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve Rusk County Farm
Supply as our LP provider at $1.54 per gallon, motion carried.  

There were no other board concerns.  Chairman Kinsley asked if we
could move our next board meeting to August 20, 2014, the 3rd
Wednesday of the month, he may be out of town the previous week. 
There were no objections; next meeting date was set for August 20,
2014.

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

                                                 Lori Van Winkle,
Clerk
                                                 June 18, 2014
