04/10/19 – Board of Supervisors Monthly Meeting Minutes

TOWN OF SPIDER LAKE, SAWYER CO., WI
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MONTHLY MEETING
APRIL 10, 2019

The Town of Spider Lake Board of Supervisors monthly meeting was called to order by Town Chair Hucker at 7:00 PM. Present were Hucker, McGuiness, Cerman, Huot, Clerk Ferda, Treasurer Overman and Fire Chief Nelson. Supervisor Brandt was absent.

Motion was made by Cerman and 2nd by McGuiness to approve the agenda. All in favor. Motion carried.

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Ferda reported that the new town officers (John Leighton, Stephanie Martin & Michael Lemminger) have been sworn in. In Spider Lake, Brian Hagedorn won for WI Supreme Court Justice and Lisa Stark won for Court of Appeals Judge District 3. Hucker congratulated the new officers.

Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to approve the Town Board minutes of 3-13-19, the Public Hearing minutes of 3-6-19 and the Plan & Review Commission minutes of 3-6-19. All in favor. Motion carried.

Overman presented the Treasurer’s report. March 2019 receipts were $22,510.70 and expenditures were $54,339.85 leaving a balance of $700,437.56.

The vouchers were presented for payment. Motion to approve checks numbered #023434 through #023490 (including EFT checks) in the amount of $38,298.67 was made by McGuiness and 2nd by Huot. All in favor. Motion carried.

Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to approve a “Class B” liquor license for Ghost Lake Lodge Enterprises, LLC (DBA Ghost Lake Lodge, Mitchell Monson, Agent) beginning May 24, 2019 through June 30, 2019 subject to all requirements being met. All in favor. Motion carried.

Motion was made by McGuiness and 2nd by Huot to approve operator’s licenses for Gary Dohrn, Marcia Jo Dohrn and Keith Buskirk. All in favor. Motion carried.

Ferda presented the first quarter budget report. She reported that revenues, so far, are on track as anticipated. Expenditures are on track except for the road budget where expenses in the Fuel, Utilities & Supplies line item, Operations & Equipment Repairs line item and the Wages line item are higher than expected for the first quarter due to higher fuel costs, repairs to equipment and a long winter season. A budget amendment will be presented to apply unallocated surplus to the road budget line items.

Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to adopt Resolution #2019-02 (copy attached) amending the 2019 budget. A roll call vote was taken. 4 yes and no nay votes. Motion carried.

Cerman asked Nelson if the vegetation on Ghost Lake Dam needed treatment. Nelson replied he would not be able to tell until the snow and ice are gone.

Ferda reported that due to the town’s assessor being on vacation, no dates could be set for Open Book and Board of Review.

Plan & Review Commission
Zoning Administrator Report – ZA Olson reported that there was one CSM, one Land Use Permit, one CUP and one rebuild. Olson anticipates scheduling a CUP public hearing in May to allow a residential structure to be built in A-1 where no one is engaged in agricultural activity.

Based on the recommendation from the PRC, a motion was made by Cerman and 2nd by McGuiness to approve the County’s proposed changes to its A-1 and A-2 zoning districts; however, the Town will continue to enforce its own zoning ordinance provisions including where the Town is more restrictive than the County. All in favor. Motion carried. It was noted that the Town never adopted the A-2 district concept.

Olson will present the mining related amendments to the Town’s zoning ordinance and the Swift zoning change to the County Board for its approval later this month.

Committee Reports
Roads – Equipment Status – McGuiness reported that there are currently no issues with the road equipment.

Cerman reported that he could find no concrete answer regarding the road crew choosing to work through their lunch period mainly while plowing roads. Overman reported that there is no state standard. Hucker is concerned about safety issues and whether the Town should endorse a policy where no breaks are taken. Huot stated it should be up to the road crew. Motion was made by Cerman and 2nd by Huot to table this matter until the May meeting.

Discussion was held regarding the road crew’s request to go to summer hours starting May 1st. Instead of working five eight hour days, the road crew would work four ten hour days with Fridays off. Nelson stated that the road crew feels this is more efficient, less wear and tear on the equipment and less fuel. Nelson also stated that from November 1st to April 1st, the road crew is not allowed to take any time off. Hucker is concerned about increased overtime due to the potential of call outs on Fridays. Huot feels this should be up to the road crew and can be adjusted at a later time if it isn’t working out. Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by Hucker to implement summer hours on an experimental basis for this year. All in favor. Motion carried.

Regarding planning for the implementation of the 2019 CWPP grants, Hucker noted that brush collections are held in the spring and the fall and that there is a specific plan this year for road clearing. These grants usually bring between $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 of grant funds to the Town which could help offset the cost of the part time road worker.

Regarding the culvert work on FR 336 (Mathy Rd), Hucker reported that they are waiting for the weather to clear. A meeting should be scheduled quickly between the road crew and the forest service to address this issue.

McGuiness reported that Fogal contacted NWBE regarding his concerns on an area of Town Hall Rd. where the road is sloped. There is no drainage and there is water over the road. Antczak Construction has been contacted and Diggers Hot Line needs to mark the lines in that area before Antczak can review the situation. Silt work needs to be completed and tags removed after the snow is gone. Funds were held back until this phase is totally completed.

McGuiness reported that according to the County, the road bans should be lifted toward the end of April.

Discussion was held regarding the pot holes throughout the Town.

Health & Safety – Fire Department Report – Fire Chief Nelson reported that there are currently no issues within the fire department. He advised that burning permits are required.

Hucker reported that he and Nelson met with County representatives regarding the use of the Moose Lake Tower to expand communications within and between Spider Lake and Round Lake. Round Lake’s attorney does not want to finalize the agreement between Round Lake and Spider Lake until more details are available. This is still a work in progress.

The next LEPC meeting will be held on April 17th at 11:00 am at Namekagon Transit. Hucker and Nelson have served on the committee for the last several years.

Hucker noted that planning for the 2020 CWPP Grant Applications should begin within the next six weeks. The CWPP needs to be reviewed for updates this summer.

Clerk’s Report
Motion was made by McGuiness and 2nd by Cerman granting permission to the Chequamegon Lion’s to use the Solid Waste site for Diabetes Awareness Day on June 29th and to place an eyeglass container at the town hall. All in favor. Motion carried.

A reminder that the annual town meeting will be held on 4-16-19 beginning at 6:00 pm.

Questions from Audience and Other Matters for Discussion Purposes Only – Sarah Delaney noted another problem within the reconstruction area on Town Hall Rd. The first culvert is not flowing and is possibly plugged. The east side of the road is ten inches lower and water is close to going over the road. Nelson will review. She also asked if there is a next phase and when would it begin. Hucker stated that they
wanted to wait for at least a year to see if the road has been stabilized before doing any more work. The work that has been done was the engineer’s best view on how to fix the road. If there are problems, they should be addressed before doing any additional work. Resurfacing the balance of the road is one option for the next phase if the road has been stabilized.

Jim Nickel thanked the road crew for the great job they did this winter keeping the roads open and sanded.

Kathy Overman thanked the board members who are leaving for their dedication to the town.

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

Hucker handed out the A-1 & A-2 zone district pr6posed changes for the county. After discussion the commission members did not a~pear to have any objections if the county adopted these changes at the county level. The PRC could look at these later and determine if it will recommend to the town board that the town change its zoning ordinance to adopt the proposed changes at the local level. It was noted that the Town never adopted the A-2 district concept at all. A motion was made by Mazik and seconded by Thearin to recommend to the Town Board that it indicate to the County that the town had no objections to the proposed changes at the county level but would maintain its own ordinance “as is” until further review.

The Town of Spider Lake Board of Supervisors monthly meeting was called to order by Town Chair Hucker at 7:00 PM. Present were Hucker, Brandt, McGuiness, Cerman, Huot, Clerk Ferda, Treasurer Overman and Fire Chief Nelson.

Motion was made by McGuiness and 2nd by Cerman to approve the agenda. All in favor. Motion carried.

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by Cerman to approve the Town Board minutes of 2-13-19 and the Plan & Review Commission minutes of 2-6-19. All in favor. Motion carried.

Overman presented the Treasurer’s report. February 2019 receipts were $521,083.19 and expenditures were $1,717,516.20 leaving a balance of $732,266.71.

The vouchers were presented for payment. Motion to approve checks numbered #023380 through #023433 (including EFT checks) in the amount of $1,732,391.92 was made by Brandt and 2nd by Cerman. All in favor. Motion carried.

Hucker reported that a public hearing was held on 3-6-19 for the Plan Commission to consider a request from Tim Swift for a rezone of his property from F-1 to RR-1 in order to split the lot into two five acre parcels. Swift wants to sell the five acre parcel containing the house and build a new structure on the remaining five acre lot. There were no objections and the PRC has recommended that the board approve the rezone. Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to approve the rezone for Tim Swift. All in favor. Motion carried. Hucker noted that this matter will now be forwarded to the Sawyer County board once the thirty day waiting period expires. He also noted that this rezone is not deemed to be spot zoning.

Overman gave a presentation encouraging the board to join the Town Advocacy Council which is an affiliate of the WTA. Its current mission is: “Advocating for legislation that advances town government interests” such as increased transportation aids, increased managed forest law payments, etc. The cost is .25 cents per person of population (361) for an annual cost of $90.25. After discussion, a motion was made by Huot and 2nd by Brandt to join the Town Advocacy Council. All in favor. Motion carried.

Plan & Review Commission
Zoning Administrator Report – ZA Olson reported that there is one new permit and one compliance issue.

Committee Reports
Roads – Equipment Status – McGuiness reported that prices are currently being obtained to replace the plow frame on T-4 due to stress fractures. The frame has been welded many times and needs to be replaced.

A motion was made by McGuiness and 2nd by Huot ratifying Hucker’s action giving permission to allow RM Bay Logging, Inc. to haul during the road bans on FR174. All in favor. Motion carried. Hucker advised that Bay Logging has posted a $5,000.00 cash bond and he has obtained permission from the USFS.

Discussion was held regarding the road crew choosing to work through their lunch period mainly while plowing roads. Health & safety issues, allowing comp time and shortening the daily work hours were discussed. Cerman will review state laws, etc. and this matter will be on the April agenda.

McGuiness reported on the USFS meeting that he & Fogal attended in Clam Lake on 3-12-19. Old & new
USFS summer projects were discussed. The FR 205 (Upper A) culvert project contract has been awarded
and work should be completed by November 1, 2019. A new annual manual with a list of contact people
was distributed. Due to the flooding of recent years, the USFS is running low on materials such as gravel at
its various sites. Some of these sites may be expanded in the future including the site that the town might
be able to use.

An email was received from Mark Koshak (USFS) stating that a cooperative agreement is being prepared
regarding the town’s responsibility and the forest service’s responsibility for the replacement of a culvert on
FR 336 (Mathey Rd). According to the road maintenance cooperative agreement between the town and the
forest service, FR 336 is listed as a joint responsibility road. Hucker suggested scheduling a road committee
meeting and inviting Koshak to attend or the town should submit a written response to the email.

Regarding the completion of the current phase of the Town Hall Rd project, silt work needs to be completed
after the snow is gone. Funds were held back until this phase is totally completed. If paving of the entire
road is to be done, additional construction funds need to be earmarked.

McGuiness reported that an announcement will be made by the County regarding road bans on March 20,
2019 at noon.

Health & Safety – Fire Department Report – Fire Chief Nelson reported that there are currently no issues
within the fire department. Some minor repairs will be made to Engine #1. The department attended a
controlled burn of a house in Winter.

Hucker reported that an agreement between Round Lake and Spider Lake regarding the use of the Moose
Lake Tower to expand communications within and between the two towns should be ready for the April
meeting. Issues that will be addressed in the agreement are sharing costs, insurance coverage, termination
by either party, etc. We are proposing that if, at any time, Round Lake terminates the agreement, the FCC
license would be transferred from Round Lake to Spider Lake.

Solid Waste –Brandt reported that he is waiting to receive the correct tonnage figures of recycling from
Republic Services for the state recycling report. Ferda reported receiving a $1,000.00 credit for the January
& February bills from Republic Services. Discussion was held regarding whether this has been an equitable
conclusion to the town’s objection to the recent billings from Republic Services not adhering to the current
contract prices. The board decided it was a fair solution.

Insurance & Finance – Huot briefly reported on the WTA district meeting he attended and that one thing
he learned was how the state financial form (Form CT) can negatively affect the town’s transportation aids if
not filed on time.

Clerk’s Report
Other Correspondence – Ferda reported that FEMA is now requiring towns to register online and that the
town has been registered.

A letter was received from the Sawyer County Highway Dept. regarding the recently adopted resolution
pertaining to establishing and maintaining ATV/UTV routes on Sawyer County Trunk Highways.

The 2018 worker’s compensation audit report was received from the insurance company resulting in an
$874.00 additional premium.
