The regular business meeting of the Town of Winter was called to order
at 7:00 P.M. by Chairman David Kinsley.  Present were board members

Winkle.  There were no audience members present.  The Pledge of
Allegiance was recited.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the agenda as
presented, motion carried.

Motion by Patenaude, second by Barnaby to approve the meeting minutes
from the October 7, 2016 working budget meeting and October 12, 2016
regular meeting motion carried.

License/Zoning: One additional land use permit came in today on
Johnson Road for a new outbuilding valued at $15,000.00

Highway/Road Report:   Chairman Kinsley stated Dave Martin is hauling
gravel and Gary Kielcheski is ditching and weíve received several
compliments on the ditching work.  Bryan Kinsley began mowing the
third pass to cut the brush back.  Chairman Kinsley stated he looked
at the crack sealing on Barker Lake Road and it looks good. Gary did
re shoulder some of those inside curves that needed work on Fishtrap
and Barber Lake roads and it looks really nice.   Ron Barnaby said he
noticed that today too when he was up there and agreed it looked nice.
 Terry Patenaude asked if we could put a bucket of gravel on that
driveway near the concrete work we did in the ditch from the flood
damage?  Chairman Kinsley stated Dave Martin and the property owner
have discussed what should be done there and are working on it; they
just havenít been there yet.  Gary has also been on Sundling road
repairing a wash out.

Unfinished Business: Chairman Kinsley stated Lori finished up the
flood aid and submitted everything to the Department of Transportation
for payment.  There was no other unfinished business to discuss.

New Business:  Regarding the Employee Labor Agreement for 2017,
nothing has changed except for the increase of .15 cents per hour to
wages and .35 cents per hour to the pension.  Terry Patenaude stated
he did call the crew to ask them about this, just double checking
things with them and they were ok with it.  Chairman Kinsley stated
that is what he discussed with them previously and is what they agreed
to.  Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to approve the 2017
Employee Labor agreement as discussed, motion carried.

Regarding a wage increase for the part time employee position,
Chairman Kinsley stated Ron Barnaby had brought this up last month and
commented that Terry Patenaude had some questions?  Terry replied he
did and thanked Lori for the information provided.  Barnaby stated the
reason he brought this up again is because of the need of having a
temporary worker, especially this year with all the flood damage. He
stated that any temporary worker for the Town that is available on an
on call basis should have at least $15.00 an hour.  While the full
time employees were working on the flood damage the part time worker
helped with that but was also able to be doing other necessary jobs,
like mowing and grading and he was able to repair some of the flood
damage with the grader on J all while the other guys were up north
doing other work, Barnaby stated you just canít expect a guy to be on
call and do all this kind of work for less than $15.00 an hour. 
Patenaude stated that he called  another town who is paying their part
time employee $17.00 with a CDL.  Barnaby motioned to increase the
temporary workers wage to $15.00 per hour, second by Patenaude, motion
carried.  Chairman Kinsley abstained from this motion for personal
reasons.  Chairman Kinsley did add that this has been a year that it
was good to have someone able to run the grader with all the storm
damage, Barnaby agreed.  This wage increase will become effective
January 1, 2016.

Correspondence and Contacts:  For the boards information, Lori stated
that with the late Board of Review this year she stayed late Friday to
complete the towns Statement of Assessment and it was submitted to the
Department of Revenue, she called them to be sure they received it and
was advised the DOR does equating every Tuesday, so ours should be
completed by the end of next week.  

Ron Barnaby has received complaints again regarding these camper
trailers where people are not in compliance with zoning regulations
and asked what we can do to get the County Zoning to enforce their
regulations.  Chairman Kinsley stated he has been thinking about this
as well and suggested that after the December 1 deadline we should
prepare a list of these locations with names and fire numbers and he
will personally take it up to the Zoning office.  Ron stated there are
two located on Hunter Lake road that were placed without fire numbers.
 Terry Patenaude stated there are two on the Brunet River across from
Tices too and he knows of another one that was recently turned into
zoning on Lake Winter that now has things to do to comply.  

Approval of Disbursements:  Motion by Barnaby, second by Patenaude to
approve the disbursements as presented, motion carried. CK #18076
through CK# 18090 were approved in the amount of $30,774.97. 
Patenaude did have a question regarding the payment to WI Kenworth,
regarding rims, did they have some break or did they want some for
spares? Chairman Kinsley stated from what he recalled it was for
spares.  Chairman Kinsley added that we will need to replace a set of
tires on one truck before Winter and will probably be sending one
truck in for an alignment since the tires a wearing funny.  Lori added
that since it was early in the month not all the bills were in yet and
will pay the others later in the month.  

Board Concerns:  There were none.

Next Meeting date was set for December 14, 2015; the Budget Hearing is
next week on November 16, 2016.  Tentatively there will be an
ambulance information meeting on November 30th at the Fire Hall to
inform the public of the status of the feasibility study.

Motion by Barnaby, second by Kinsley to adjourn, motion carried.

                                                                      
                                Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
