TOWN BOARD MEETING – TOWN OF WINTER – N4680 CTY RD W–WINTER, WI JUNE
13, 2018

Supervisor Ronald Barnaby called the meeting to order at 4:30 p.m.
Present were Supervisor Terry Patenaude, Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van
Winkle and 2 audience members.   Supervisor Barnaby asked everyone to
stand and bow their heads in a moment of silence for our past Town
Chairman David Kinsley.  Supervisor Barnaby stated over the past
several days and months there have been several families in and around
the Winter area that have lost loved ones and we would like to extend
our condolences to those families too.  Supervisor Barnaby went on to
say that with the passing of Dave, we lost a good man, an exceptional
Chairman and a true friend.  Dave’s shoes will never be filled and
it’s with heavy hearts that we must continue on.  

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.  Motion by Patenaude/Barnaby to
add discussion of blacktop to the agenda under New Business, item 9.
a. motion carried.  With that change the agenda was approved by
Patenaude/Barnaby, motion carried.

Supervisor Barnaby addressed the audience members that if there are
any questions to please raise their hands.

Motion by Patenaude/Barnaby to approve the Meeting Minutes from May 9,
2018 regular meeting as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning:  Regarding Sawyer County Zoning Ordinance changes to
Regulation of Metallic Mining; Supervisor Barnaby commented that it
appears they just explained their intent in a little more detail than
the previous ordinance, there were no objections, motion by
Patenaude/Barnaby to approve the proposed changes, motion carried.

Regarding Special Use permit application for Thomas J. Martin 5128
Clover Rd, for construction of a dwelling in an A-1 zone, discussion
took place, there were no objections, motion by Barnaby/Patenaude to
approve the special use permit application, motion carried.

Regarding Liquor License applications: all applications were reviewed
and requirements have been met, motion by Barnaby/Patenaude to approve
all licenses for the new term except for Raymond Boris, personal rep
for NAD Corporation, due to pending foreclosure proceedings to take
place June 28, 2018, motion carried. 

Regarding Operator Licenses: all applications were reviewed and
requirements met, motion by Patenaude/Barnaby to approve all licenses
and the one late arriving license application contingent upon payment
of license fee, motion carried.

Highway/Road Report:  Some of the areas the crew has been working are
Circle B, gravel work and squaring up the shoulders on Olson Road and
blacktop hand patching on Old 70 off W.

Unfinished Business:  Regarding Bridge Resurfacing:  Barnaby stated
Dave Martin had discussed other options of bridge resurfacing with the
application of a good concrete sealer; stating the intent is to slow
down surface deterioration. This would be more cost effective than a
blacktop overlay and our crew could do this.  Patenaude agreed stating
the county is also doing this and provided details on the process and
the possibility of having the County do it for the Town, once we clean
the bridges.  Patenaude stated this is maintenance type work and meets
the state requirements.  Patenaude asked if the sweeper was repaired,
Barnaby replied it has been and sweeping was done on all the roads. 
Patenaude asked about the Grader discussed last month, Barnaby stated
that it is no longer available.

New Business:  Regarding Crack sealing, Barnaby asked Patenaude since
he’s been handling this in the past if he would continue with it? 
Patenaude stated he could but Bryan Coss is knowledgeable too and he
would ask the crew about other roads that really need it.  Patenaude
stated in his opinion he thinks Lake Winter Road should be re crack
sealed as there were areas that needed attention to keep it in as good
of shape as possible.  Barnaby added regarding Lake Winter Road, that
he believes it could have been a poor product or poor work because
other areas done years ago have held up very well and these latest
ones seem more like a skim coat and just did not hold up well. 
Further discussion took place and Patenaude and Barnaby agreed perhaps
we need to be more focused on the quality of the work and not just the
price.  Lori stated 2 weeks prior to tonight’s meeting Dave Kinsley
did an inspection of the crack sealing work that had been done in the
past 2 years, he told Lori if he wasn’t at tonight’s meeting  that in
his opinion we needed to re-crack seal Lake Winter Road and a few
others.  Barnaby spoke up that if that was Dave’s opinion then he was
more confident about doing Lake Winter Road.  Patenaude and Barnaby
agreed the work should be done no later than the end of September. 
Regarding Blacktopping, discussion took place regarding which roads to
blacktop, previously Dave Kinsley commented he would like to see
Circle B Road and Olson Road blacktopped along with a few patches in
other areas. Barnaby will talk with Dave Martin regarding other areas
for blacktopping and crack sealing and then advertising for crack
sealing and blacktop proposals will be done.

Correspondence/Contacts:  It was discussed that a letter be written to
the property owners who have placed a fire pit on the town’s boat
landing property and ask them to remove it.   Barnaby responded to a
call from a resident regarding the Boat Landing and boat dock at
Barker Lake on Circle B Road.  Barnaby inspected it and it does need
attention, he has discussed repairs with the town crew.  

Approval of Disbursements:    Regarding the disbursements, Patenaude
asked about the costs for painting by Chippewa Valley Equipment and
what items were painted, Barnaby replied the CAT Dozer and the
Freightliner.  Motion by Barnaby/Patenaude to approve the
disbursements as presented, Check # 19088 through Check # 19113 in the
amount of $18,643.02, motion carried. 

Board Concerns:  Discussion took place regarding procedures for
filling our board vacancy.  Patenaude asked Barnaby if he was
interested in the Chairman vacancy, Barnaby replied yes he is willing
to move to the Chairman position for the duration of this term;
therefore, it would be a supervisor vacancy open for appointment for
the remaining term.  There is no requirement to advertise the vacancy
and by now most people in the area are aware of the situation and we
will also spread the word if anyone who is a Town of Winter resident,
is interested they should contact the Town Hall to be considered.  The
Town would like finalize this at our July meeting if possible.  

The next meeting date was set for July 11, 2018 with the meeting time
to be determined.  

With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 5:15
p.m.

                                                                      
                               Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
