understanding that we will contact the Village and Fire Dept to give
them an opportunity to change to Ritchie Lakeland Oil also, and the
town will change regardless.
Second by David Kinsley, motion carried.

for the rezone of the Wiley property?  It was explained that we will
not be making a decision tonight until after the second meeting on

on it this Friday, the answer was no, it was also postponed at the
county level until the July meeting.

Resource Center for the donation given they state the funds were used

this last year for them with over 80 kids in attendance it was a good
cause and she made a motion to approve providing the porta pottie for
this years event too on June 16, 2012, second by David Kinsley, motion

Richard Biebl commented that the Town crew has done an excellent job
on West Barber Road, wondering if blacktopping will be done in 2013. 
Chairman Genrich commented that due to low traffic on West Barber road
they are looking at an alternative to blacktop for this road and it
will be discussed further during the budget hearing.  He could not
make any guarantees at this time.  Richards’s main concern was the
location of a blacktop plant and not being within distance to work on
West Barber Road for years.  It was explained to him that the plants
are set up at designated sites Mroteks, Thompsons and On M which are
their normal sites and these would still be able to service West
Barber Road if needed, they do not have to specifically set up near
West Barber Road.

Next meeting date was set for July 11, 2012.  Motion by Helen Dennis,
second by David Kinsley to adjourn, motion carried.

                                 June 15, 2012
