Plan & Review Commission Report
CSM Review Owner: William Boersma – A Redivision of Lot 3 & Lot 4 of CSM No. 8002, Recorded in Vol 31 on Pages 183-185 Doc. No. 367803, Located in the NW ¼ – NW ¼ and Gov’t 4, Section 27, T.42 N., R. 6W. Hucker reported that there were no issues. No additional lots are being created and both lots are vacant land.

Zoning Administrator Report – A few of new permits have been issued.

Hucker reported that the PRC reviewed the County’s proposed non-metallic mining ordinance. Due to the state law change, the moratorium on nonferrous mining will expire on July 1st. If the town amends its mining section of the zoning ordinance, the amendments can be more restrictive than the County but they have to be at least as restrictive as the County. On the recommendation of the Plan Commission, a motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to support the County’s proposed mining ordinance. All in favor. Motion carried. Bobbi Huot asked if the ordinance will include gravel pits. Hucker advised that federal sites are not subject to the town’s regulations. All potential sites are governed by EPA, WDNR and local regulations

Hucker reported that Northwest Planning is currently working on revisions for the town’s comprehensive plan. A public hearing should be held sometime this summer.

Committee Reports
Roads – McGuiness reported that one of the dump trucks had a small issue that has been taken care of. The utility truck will need new tires in the near future.

Regarding the USFS repairs to culverts on FR 205 (Upper A), McGuiness reported that the USFS may postpone this project until June of 2019.

Cerman stated that a culvert has lifted the pavement near Boersma Rd. Hucker requested that the road crew make a list of culverts that need attention to review at the next road committee meeting.

Regarding the culverts for FR 203 & FR 328, the USFS has requested an extension agreement due to the USFS being late in obtaining the culverts.

Health & Safety – Fire Department Report – Fire Chief Nelson reported that are no issues.

Regarding communications, Hucker reported that DSC is not optimistic that the Moose Lake tower will provide a solution to the problem. Also, the USFS appears less enamored with the towns using the Moose Lake tower. Rolfe Hanson (Round Lake Chair) is looking into the possibility of using the Norvado towers in Spider Lake & Round Lake. Hucker & Nelson feel a study should be done to see if these towers would provide a potential solution. It will be more cost effective if Spider Lake & Round Lake can share the costs.
Operational costs likely could be $3,000.00 to $6,000.00 a year if using private towers. That figure does not include installation. A study for the Norvado towers will cost approximately $1,000.00 and a study for the Moose Lake Tower will cost approximately $300.00 to $500.00.

Nelson reported that the spring brush collection will end on June 16th and the Town of Hayward will chip the brush.

A letter was received from Northern Lakes Propane advising that there is 6020 gallons of propane remaining for the 2018-2019 contract. The town used 6083 gallons for the 2017-2018 season. If the town wishes to purchase additional gallons, the cost will be $1.239 per gallon. Cerman will contact Northern Lakes Propane regarding this matter.

The CWPP will meet on June 26th at the Spider Lake Town Hall to discuss updates to the plan and to discuss the integration of the Town of Round Lake as a member.

Cerman reported that on the advice of Northern Lakes Propane, he will have two safety features upgraded in the propane system.

Solid Waste – Brandt reported that the expansion of the solid waste site has been completed. New bear proof dumpsters will be delivered. A new contract from Republic Services should be received shortly. Brandt also reported that Jerry Ferda has resigned as attendant at the solid waste site. A Solid Waste committee meeting will be scheduled to discuss personnel and benefits.

Insurance & Finance – Hucker reported that the claim was settled with Jump River Electric. Huot will follow up with Jump River regarding placing markers (antennas) on its equipment.

Clerk’s Report
Other Correspondence – A letter was received from the WI Dept. of Agriculture advising that the vehicle fueling facility and the AST storage tank passed inspection.

A letter was received from Jump River Electric advising that the fixed cost of delivery charge will increase from $32.90 to $40.90 effective May 1, 2018.

The Board of Review is scheduled for June 14th from 3:00 PM to 5:00PM.

A letter was received from the Sawyer County Surveyor’s Dept. asking the town to notify this dept. prior to any road work, including clearing or ditching, planned for 2018.

Questions from Audience and Other Matters for Discussion Purposes Only
Cerman advised that he has made arrangements with the County to have someone present at the September board meeting to discuss its program for short-term rentals.

Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to adjourn. All in favor. Motion carried.

Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the board of review and procedural requirements if appearing before the board:

  1. No person will be allowed to appear before the board of review, to testify to the board by telephone, or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the assessor to enter onto property to conduct an exterior view of such property being assessed.
  2. After the first meeting of the board of review and before the board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the board of review may contact or provide information to a member of the board about the person’s objection, except at a session of the board. Open book shall occur no less than 7 days prior to the board of review.
  3. The board of review may not hear an objection to the amount or valuation of property unless, at least 48 hours before the board’s first scheduled meeting, the objector provides to the board’s clerk written or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of a written objection, the board shall waive that requirement during the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, and the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days with proof of extraordinary circumstances for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and failure to appear before the board of review during the first 2 hours of the first scheduled meeting.
  4. Objections to the amount or valuation of property shall first be made in writing and filed with the clerk of the board of review within the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, except that, upon evidence of extraordinary circumstances, the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days. The board may require objections to the amount or valuation of property to be submitted on forms approved by the Department of Revenue, and the board shall require that any forms include stated valuations of the property in question. Persons who own land and improvements to that land may object to the aggregate valuation of that land and improvements to that land, but no person who owns land and improvements to that land may object only to the valuation of that land or only to the valuation of improvements to that land. No person may be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless the written objection has been filed and that person in good faith presented evidence to the board in support of the objections and made full disclosure before the board, under oath, of all of that person’s property liable to assessment in the district and the value of that property. The requirement that objections be in writing may be waived by express action of the board.
  5. When appearing before the board of review, the objecting person shall specify in writing the person’s estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.
  6. No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or object to a valuation if that valuation was made by the assessor or the objector using the income method of valuation, unless no later than 7 days before the first meeting of the board of review the person supplies the assessor with all the information about income and expenses, as specified in the assessor’s manual under s. 73.03 (2a), Wis. stats., that the assessor requests. The Town of Spider Lake has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph that provides exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their officer or by order of a court. The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determines before the first meeting of the board of review that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under s. 19.35 (1), Wis. Stats.
  7. The board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician, surgeon, or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability. No other persons may testify by telephone unless the Board, in its discretion, has determined to grant a property owner’s or their representative’s request to testify under oath by telephone or written statement.
  8. No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or contest the amount of any assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the board, or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed under s.70.47 (3) (a), Wis. stats., that person provides to the clerk of the board of review notice as to whether the person will ask for the removal of a member of the board of review and, if so, which member, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of time the hearing will take.
