MEETING MINUTES                                                       
               SEPTEMBER 11, 2013

A regular meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was
called to order by Chairman James Genrich at 7:00 P.M.  Present were
supervisors David Kinsley, Helen Dennis, Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van
Winkle and 7 citizens.  The Pledge of Allegiance was recited; Chairman
Genrich welcomed everyone and stated if anyone had questions to please
raise their hand to speak.

Motion by David Kinsley, second by Helen Dennis to approve the agenda,
motion carried.

Audience Recognition:  Richard Biebl extended his appreciation to the
Town, thanking the board and crew for the wonderful blacktop job on
their road.  

Motion by Helen Dennis, second by David Kinsley to approve the meeting
minutes from August 14, 2013, motion carried.

License and Zoning:   A Special Use Permit was received from the
county for approval for John and Maria Gang.  The owners have 20 acres
zoned Ag-1 and plan to construct a home and out building which will
require rezone to residential.  Discussion took place between the
Board and Mr. and Mrs. Gang and there were no objections.  Motion by
David Kinsley, second by Helen Dennis to approve the special use
permit, motion carried.  Notification will be sent to the county.

4 Land Use permits in the Town of Winter were issued by county this
month, total value approximately $ 50,200.00. 

Highway / Road Report:  Blacktop has been done on West Barber Road,
Cornwall Road and Turcotte Road and a - 1 mile stretch of Blacktop
Wedge was done on Barker Lake Road.  At our last meeting the board
commented they were going to work on the Blacktop prices a little
more, in review, our blacktop cost was actually .3 cents less per ton
this year than last years prices. 

Unfinished Business:  Sawyer County is updating the Municipal
Emergency Operation Plans; the Town has completed theirs to be
approved.  The only change the Town made was that the Town prefers to
be the first contact for crew and equipment use, so we are aware of
what will be done with our crew and equipment.  Motion by Helen Dennis
to approve the Town of Winter Municipal Emergency Operation Plan,
second by David Kinsley, motion carried.  

New Business:   The town received several complaints from a seasonal
property owner regarding fish limits, watercraft restrictions, no gas
powered motors and also regulate traffic on his easement road and no
camping or campfires on the beach etc. he advised he’s spoken with the
DNR who directed him to the Town.  The town has no jurisdiction on the
majority of these complaints.  We did investigate the possibility of
an ordinance against camping and campfires on the beach.  Our legal
department advised this is an uncommon problem and we could place
signs etc.  but in order to regulate this with an ordinance would we
most likely have to coordinate with our local sheriff’s department for
enforcement or possibly hire someone to enforce it.  Our town crew did
investigate the site and it has been abused.  Discussion took place
and it was decided at this time we will continue to monitor and place
signs. The board did not feel an ordinance was necessary at this time.
 

Due to relocation Steve Schultz has resigned his position as the
Chairman of the comprehensive planning board and as an election
worker.  Many of our election workers are also snow birds; therefore,
we are in need of additional election workers and a replacement for
the comprehensive board.  Discussion took place; it was decided to
place an ad in the newspaper for election workers and a replacement on
the comprehensive planning board.

Correspondence / Contacts:  Chamber of Commerce dues renewal of $15.00
was received, motion by Helen Dennis, second by David Kinsley to renew
the Chamber membership. 
 A letter was received from the Winter Cemetery Association requesting
we release funds allocated in our 2013 budget for the cemetery. 
Discussion took place, the board advised a letter be written to the
Cemetery Association requesting a copy of their most recent financial
statement and the amount they are requesting.
A letter was received from the Winter Senior Citizens Center, thanking
the Town for past support and requesting we included them in our 2014
budget as well.  The board will take this under advisement during
budget reviews.  
The Town has received approval of a grant for road improvement work on
West Lane.  Much of this work has been completed already as it was
planned to complete it whether we received the grant or not.  Now with
the grant dollars involved, this is a win win situation for the Town. 
A resolution will be prepared and presented at next month’s meeting
indicating the town owns the road, the nature of the project and the
estimated budget. 

APPROVAL OF DISBURSEMENTS:  Motion by David Kinsley, second by Helen
Dennis to approve the disbursements as presented.  Check # 16095
through check #16117 in the amount of $60,559.00 was approved, motion
carried.  Account Balances as of August 31, 2013  General Account
$17,832.93, MMA Savings Account $272,637.76, LGIP Machinery Account $
.10, LGIP General Account $2,792.29.

Public Discussion – Gravel crushing has been completed.  Burlum Road
is being worked on.
Chairman Genrich stated he was informed that the DNR want to place a
herd of Elk in the Haystack, Thornapple area.  Warren Johnson county
rep was in the audience, he stated he’s been advised 4 acres will be
fence in and 25 Elk will be placed to begin with.
The area is clear cut land about 5 miles off Cty Hwy W.  It is hopeful
this will generate revenues in the area for people coming to see the
Elk.  

Next meeting date was set for October 9, 2013.   With no further
business to discuss, motion by Helen Dennis second by David Kinsley to
adjourn the meeting, motion carried.

                                                                      
                                   Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
