Maintenance Report: Kevin called Wiers, out of Kaukauna about leasing a mower (includes tractor and 5’blade). It is $1,800.00 for 40 hours, plus a set of blades, plus pickup and delivery. If you lease for a month you’d get the 4thweek free plus pickup and delivery is free. We could also share the mower and costs with another township (Lucas is interested). Kevin will call around to get other prices.
Chairman Report: Prior to the Feb. 18thregular town board meeting we will have a tabletop exercise with the Dunn County Emergency Management. This will be from 6pm-7pm. Other townships will be invited as well.
Rich is going to the meeting for the Dunn County Zoning for they will be voting to accept us under the county zoning.
Supervisors Report: Bob gave a copy of the Town of Black Brook animal ordinance to his neighbors as they are concerned with the ordinance we would be adopting concerning dog kennels.
Bob suggested we get a couple rollup signs (road work ahead). Kevin will call the county to see about prices.
Tim Mittlestadt Sr. is asking questions of Jack and Kelly Owen about phone calls not being returned. Tim needs the Owens to come out and re-evaluate the property as he feels he is being charged too much. Discussion ensued on the real estate transfer and so on. Owen Assessing has not gone through Stanton Township yet. Owens said they would accept all paperwork from Tim Sr. even though some of it is almost a year old. Tim Jr. would like to abandon his road (80thStreet), Lucas Township is okay with this. Rich has contacted the chairman of Lucas and the fire chief of Menomonie. The fire chief said they use that road for access for fires ( Mittlestadt’s stated the fire dept ‘s never use this road). Lucas doesn’t seem to be taking care of it. Bob suggested we talk to Lucas about not taking care of their roads in a timely manner. Kevin will plow 80thStreet in his route and use Tim’s driveway as a turnaround.
Tim handed out drafts of the Sand Operator Licensing Ordinance from the Plan Commission to look over and get on the next agenda.
Clerk-Treasurer Report: Val was wondering about pursuing being a notary for the township. Val will find out prices for this and bring it up at the next meeting.
New Business: 2012 Audit – Motion was made to use Wipfli as our auditor again for the year 2012 by B. Anderson, 2ndby R. Monn. Approved.
Animal Control Ordinance – Sheriff Smith is not interested at this time for the enforcement part of the animal ordinance. Rich contacted the Township Association and they suggested we advertise in the paper for an animal control warden. According to Steve Nielsen, Animal Control Officers need to be certified by the State. Bob suggested we put this on next month’s agenda and get some information of what it would take to get an animal control warden.
