Chairman Report: Boyceville fire is having a special meeting tonight to discuss buying a used ambulance. The “new” used one has a box on it that can be used in any ambulance but it also has 50,000 more miles on it that the current one has. The board voted no, however, they are having this special meeting tonight. Rich wasn’t able to be there due to this meeting, so he wrote a letter to submit for the meeting stating the Town of Stanton is NOT in approval of buying an ambulance or anything else that is not currently budgeted for.
Rich would like to give the current recycling attendant the code to get into the shop for the restroom. Board okayed this.
Rich will work on wording for bids for the recycling/solid waste dumpsters to be advertised in April to be back in time to open at the May meeting.
Rich made the motion to add a 9th bullet on the current agenda to add committee reports, 2nd by B. Anderson. Approved.
Supervisors Report: Our attorney got back to Bob Anderson on the animal control ordinance. We will discuss this in new business.
Clerk-Treasurer Report: Received a letter from Rural Insurance, our policy renews in April. If we have any questions or concerns they wanted to let us know we can call or stop by any time.
We need to sign and pass the ordinance for extending the town officer terms in response to election law changes (it would be an added week to cover the “gap” between the end of the current term and the start of the new term).
Dates for Open Book will be April 22nd from 7-9pm and Board of Review will be May 29th 6-8pm. We will meet on April 16th to adjourn the annual meeting to Tuesday, April 23rd. This will be our regular meeting as well as the Annual Meeting.
New Business: Motion was made by B. Anderson to put off the road bids off until May, 2nd by T. Mittlestadt Jr. Approved.
Animal Control Ordinance – Terry (our attorney) went through and “finalized” the ordinance. Bob went through the ordinance and pointed out a few mistakes and made a few comments on the wording. The Plan Commission will work out the fees.
Animal Wardens-These wardens are licensed by the state and Dunn County has only one person in our jurisdiction to be able to do this. Bob will do some more research on this and have more info in April.
Motion was made that we adopt the ordinance on the extension of officer terms to comply with law changes was made by R. Monn, 2nd by T. Mittlestadt Jr. Approved.
