TOWN OF WINTER BOARD MEETING-N4680 CTY RD W-WINTER, WI NOVEMBER 14,
2018

Chairman Ronald Barnaby called the meeting to order at 6:30 P.M. 
Present were Supervisors Ronald Fandry and Terry Patenaude,
Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van Winkle and 1 audience member.  The Pledge of
Allegiance was recited, Barnaby welcomed everyone.  Agenda approved by
motion of Fandry/Patenaude, motion carried.

Barnaby stated audience recognition is allowed for agenda items and to
raise your hand if you wish to speak.

Meeting minutes from October 10, 2018 approved by motion of
Patenaude/Fandry, motion carried.

There were no License or Zoning items for discussion.

Highway / Road Report:  Barnaby stated with the winter weather upon on
us repairs and maintenance to the plows have been done and the crew
has been busy plowing and sanding, they repaired a damaged culvert on
Old J and are cleaning and power washing equipment. Patenaude
mentioned he’s spoken with Gary Gedart and if desired the Town could
get salt/sand from the Sawyer County Shop in Winter this year. 
Barnaby thanked Patenaude for this offer and said he would leave this
up to the crew, the salt/sand from Rusk County is screened and/or
washed and has worked well for the Town and cost would also be a
consideration.  Patenaude asked if the Town Shop was equipped with
remotes/openers for all the overhead doors?  Patenaude stated this
would be a nice convenience for the crew.  Barnaby stated he would
discuss this with the crew and get some pricing.  Patenaude also
stated that Gary Gedart was informed that Monarch Blacktop prices for
next season could see an increase of approximately $10.00 to $12.00
per ton.  Barnaby stated crude oil has been dropping in price, so
maybe it could be less if the oil prices continue to drop.

There was no unfinished business to discuss.

New Business:  The Town of Winter budgets $5000.00 each year to
support the Winter Public Library.  The Library provided the board
their current financial report along with their 2019 Proposed Budget
and a request to release the 2018 funds and request for continued
support in 2019.  Denise Pleoger was in attendance representing the
Library; Patenaude thanked Denise for her attendance and the Library
report and motioned to approve release of the budgeted support funds
for 2018, second by Barnaby, motion carried.  

Lori informed the board of a meeting she had with Marilyn Miller,
Director of the US Census Bureau.  Marilyn explained improvements to
the Census program; with a self-response option via the internet as
well as telephone and paper responses. These options provide more
confidentiality for the public which will hopefully increase
participation, with more participation, comes more funding which
benefits everyone.  They’ve asked the Town to partner with them in
this effort to help spread the word of the improvements and to assist
and encourage people to participate in the 2020 Census.  They require
the Town to appoint a Liaison as a point of contact and provide a
statement reflecting our willingness to host a committee to assist
with the 2020 Census.  The Liaison is typically the municipal clerk;
Barnaby asked Lori if she would be willing to take this on and Lori
replied yes, therefore a motion was made by Patenaude/Fandry agreeing
to partner with them for the 2020 Census  and to appoint Lori as the
contact person, motion carried.  Patenaude added that he’d mentioned
this at their Library Board meeting and the Library is willing to
promote participation and provide online assistance to those who may
not have access to a computer.
Audience member Denise Pleoger added that the school may also be able
to work with the community to promote the participation and assist as
well.   Lori will provide a letter of the Town Boards decision to
participate in this effort to the US Census Bureau.

Correspondence and Contacts:  Land use permits for the month totaled
$286,000.00 in new construction.  A letter was written to Steigerwalt
Land Services regarding Bissel Grade, requesting they remove their
gate and restore to original condition.  Zoning informed us of the
approval of the zoning change for Vernon Forde with conditions.  A
request was denied for cutting pine boughs from the trees at the Town
Shop.  Additional requests for snow plowing of driveways have been
coming in.  

Approval of Disbursements:  There were no questions related to the
disbursements, motion by Barnaby/Patenaude to approve the
disbursements as presented, Check #19340 through #19365 in the amount
of $59,380.24 were approved, motion carried.

Board Concerns:  The Hanson Bridge is coming along, the deck has been
poured and requires 7 days to cure, and then railings and approaches
will be done.  Barnaby stated he had concerns about weight limits on
the bridge in the event of loggers using it but the engineer assured
him it would be ok.    Ron Fandry received a complaint about a wash
out at an intersection of a Town and County road and asked if this is
Town or County, Patenaude responded it was probably County and he
would look into it.

The next meeting date was set for 4:30 p.m. and with no further
business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned.

                                                                      
                            Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
