                                   JUNE 7, 2016

The regular business meeting of the Town of Winter Board of
Supervisors 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, 1 audience member and a
representative from Pitlik and Wick, Inc.  Chairman Kinsley welcomed
everyone.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve meeting minutes from
May 11, 2016 as presented, motion carried.

License/Zoning: The board was provided a list of 12 liquor license
renewals and 1 cigarette license renewal, Lori verified that all have
met their requirements, motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to
approve all Liquor License renewals and cigarette license renewal
presented, motion carried.  Supervisor Patenaude asked do we now have
two available liquor licenses with the Town; the answer is yes as the
Bumble Bee has now opted not to renew their liquor license.  The board
was provided a list of 26 operator license renewals and 1 new operator
license, Lori verified that all have met their requirements, motion by
Barnaby, second by Kinsley to approve all the operator licenses as
presented, motion carried.  Supervisor Patenaude abstained as his
daughter is one of the operators.

Renewal of 3 year conditional use permit for Ralph Petit gravel pit: 
Chairman Kinsley stated this pit is located on J and has been in
operation for several years and asked the board if they were familiar
with it and if they had any concerns.  Barnaby and Patenaude were both
familiar with the pit and had no concerns, motion by Barnaby second by
Patenaude to approve the 3 year conditional use permit for Ralph
Petits gravel pit, motion carried.

Highway/Road Report:  Chairman Kinsley stated Tom from Monarch paving
called today to inform us that they agreed to carry the Town over for
blacktop payment into next year, same as they did last year.  Chris
Veness and Dave Martin will be measuring up some roads this week, Lake
Winter Road from the Chalet to the bridge and Lake Winter Road from
the T by the Rustic to the Village line, we are just getting some
costs estimates at this time.  Supervisor Patenaude added that we may
want to look at Olson Road too; Kinsley and Barnaby agreed they could
also look into Olson Road.

Unfinished Business:  Review and act on crack sealing proposals,
Chairman Kinsley turned this over to Supervisor Patenaude.  Supervisor
Patenaude had been in touch with several contractors, we received 3
proposals, Fahrner Asphalt Sealers $57,584.34, Lakes Asphalt
Maintenance $29,106.00 and Pitlik & Wick, Inc $13,653.00.  Joe from
Pitlik & Wick was present in the audience.  Supervisor Patenaude
explained the process would be crack sealing and then putting rock on.
 The two roads would be Barker Lake Road and Lake Winter Road.  Joe
from Pitlik and Wick spoke based on experience with roads like the
Town has, Joe made suggestions to the Town that may offer better
results and prolong the life of the work.  The board felt it was worth
trying and agreed with Joe and will proceed with Pitlik & Wick on the
process up to the budgeted amount for crack sealing.  Motion by
Patenaude, second by Barnaby, motion carried.

(Hank) Ralph Petit arrived late; he was advised we had already
approved his conditional use permit.  Hank added he has a driveway
there that hed like to make improvements on, he explained the
situation and asked if a driveway permit was needed, the board agreed
he did not need a permit for this as its been in existence for years
and this would be considered maintenance.  Chairman Kinsley asked Hank
if the Town could utilize area in his pit for reclamation where the
town could dispose of material when they do the ditching out of the
hill.  Hank replied yes he did and area for that, he added that he has
stone out there hes been saving to sell but its now getting in the
way and if the Town needed large stone he has some to get rid of. 
Chairman Kinsley stated for the Hanson Bridge project, he will be sure
whoever is doing the work is aware that there is stone available in
the pit. Hank thanked the Town Board.

New Business:  Approval of Jiffy Biffy for Lakes Alliance kids fishing
event.  For several years now the Town has donated/provided a porta
potty for the kids fishing event, the Alliance has again requested
this from the town, for June 18th.  Motion by Patenaude, second by
Barnaby to approve the donation of the Jiffy Biffy for the event,
motion carried.
  
Discuss Gravel Crushing: Last Winter Chairman Kinsley spoke with Greg
Peterson the forester at Sawyer County, regarding gravel crushing in a
pit by the Thornapple River.  Greg looked at the area and had no
issues with us crushing as long as we keep a distance from the river
which we always do.  Chairman Kinsley said it is difficult to
determine how much gravel will be in there depending on the vain they
get into, they are estimating between 5,000 and 10,000 yards and this
would probably be a one-time thing.  The board was in agreement with
advertising for gravel crushing in this area, motion by Kinsley,
second by Barnaby to proceed with advertising for 5,000 to 10,000
yards of gravel crushing in the Thornapple area, motion carried.

Correspondence/Contacts:   Supervisor Patenaude stated it was nice to
see the growth in our area with all the land use permits.  A thank you
note was received from the Ules on Johnson Road thanking the board for
allowing the trial basis of ATVs on their road.   

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

Board Concerns:  Supervisor Barnaby mentioned hed spoke with Lori
about this and asked if we have a contract for ambulance service and
if not, feels we should contact Sawyer County to request a copy of the
contract between the Town and the County for furnishing ambulance
service in our area.  Chairman Kinsley agreed and stated he thought
perhaps Helen Dennis would be here tonight for an update, Supervisor
Barnaby attended the most recent Public Safety meeting and said they
gave some figures on going full time with employees, but it was the
same as now, with nothing being done for a permanent solution here in
Winter, the focus was mainly on Radisson and Hayward as main stations
and Round Lake and Stone Lake as temporary stations. Chairman Kinsley
asked Supervisor Patenaude if he was in agreement with sending a
letter to the County for a copy of the contract for ambulance service,
he replied yes, Lori will write the letter.

Next meeting date was set for July 13, 2016, meeting was adjourned. 

                                                                      
                                               Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
                                                                      
                                                June 13, 2016
