The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Motion was made by Brandt and 2nd by Cerman to approve the Town Board minutes of 7-11-18, the Road Committee minutes of 7-17-18 and the Plan & Review Commission minutes of 6-6-18. All in favor. Motion carried.

Overman presented the Treasurer’s report. July 2018 receipts were $78,111.20 and expenditures were $38,485.92 leaving a balance of $740,422.84.

The vouchers were presented for payment. Motion to approve checks numbered #023028 through #023067 (including EFT checks) in the amount of $32,189.00 was made by Brandt and 2nd by McGuiness. All in favor. Motion carried. Discussion was held regarding whether the tractor/mower is designed to cut limbs from trees and how wide the shoulders of the roads should be mowed.

Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to approve a temporary “Class B” picnic license (beer and wine) to the Spider Chain of Lakes Association for its picnic on September 2, 2018. All in favor. Motion carried.

A budget planning session has been scheduled for October 17th at 4:00 PM and if needed on October 24th at 4:00 PM.

Hucker reported that he had no update on the status of the Lost Land Lake boat access project. Matchett reported that the boat ramp was closed approximately two weeks ago and construction started today. The work should be completed in approximately two weeks. The boat landing at Lost Land Lake Retreat is open.

Hucker introduced Resolution 2018-03. This resolution (requested by the WTA) is requesting that the governor and legislature develop a more permanent solution for transportation funding in the state. The WTA feels these kinds of resolutions have a meaningful impact on the legislature. Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by Brandt to adopt “Just Fix It” Transportation Resolution 2018-03. A roll call vote was taken. All in favor. Motion carried.

Plan & Review Commission Report
Hucker reported that the Commission reviewed the draft revisions to the town’s comprehensive plan with a representative from Northwest Regional Planning and made corrections. A notice must be published in the newspaper thirty days before a public hearing can be held. A public hearing will be scheduled for September 18, 2018 at 5 PM. A special Plan & Review Commission meeting will be scheduled to immediately follow the public hearing and a special Town Board meeting will be scheduled to immediately follow the special PRC meeting. The revised draft, when received, will be on the town’s website and can also be reviewed at the town hall by calling 715-462-3977.

Hucker reported that the Commission briefly reviewed the approved Sawyer County Metallic Mining Ordinance. The town’s zoning ordinance sections that deals with metallic mining will need to be reviewed and an ordinance passed that will be at least as restrictive as the county’s. Based on the Commission’s discussion, Hucker has authorized the town’s attorney to start revising the county’s version and to possibly have a draft at September’s PRC meeting. If the draft is acceptable, a public hearing will be scheduled in October.

Zoning Staffing – Hucker reported that one person has been contacted and another person will be contacted as possible replacements for Steve Boss as Zoning Administrator. Boss has indicated that he is willing to stay on as an assistant zoning administrator and plans at this point to stay on as UDC inspector.

Committee Reports
Roads – Equipment Status – Matchett reported that tires have been ordered for the pickup truck and one tire has been ordered for the grader. Matchett reported that the backhoe controls were sticking and he didn’t feel it would be safe to use it to install the three culverts that were furnished by the forest service. He submitted a proposal from J-R Excavating for the installation of the culverts. Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by McGuiness to accept the proposal in the amount of $1,500.00. All in favor. Motion carried. The road crew will haul the gravel.

Status of Town Hall Rd. Project – Hucker reported that project engineer was authorized to sign off on the contract and that has been completed. There will be some changes that should lower the costs for aggregate and flagging. Hucker noted that the DNR is still reviewing whether or not an exotic aquatic plant exists in this area. Approval is still needed from the Core of Engineers.

Hucker reported that Lead Worker Matchett has resigned effective September 30th. The town will be accepting applications for this position. An ad will be published in the Sawyer County Record today.
Motion was made by Huot and 2nd by Brandt to end the probationary period for part-time road employee Robert Hamblin as of August 4, 2018. All in favor. Motion carried.

Huot asked if the washout at the end of Murphy Blvd. will be repaired. Matchett advised that that area will be graded and more straw bales will be placed to help stop the erosion.

Health & Safety – Fire Department Report – In the absence of Fire Chief Nelson, Cerman presented the report. Parts to repair the fire truck sitting in the town hall parking lot are on backorder. The light control box which controls the lights and sirens melted. There is one new member and one pending member. Two others from the community are interested in joining the department. The fire dept. participated in a controlled burn at a house on Twin Lakes Rd. There was a good turnout for the picnic. Three hundred to three hundred twenty-five meals were served. The net profit is $6,969.80 (including contributions).

Regarding communications, Hucker reported that a meeting was held with the Forest Service, Round Lake and Spider Lake. Options were discussed. An application has been submitted to the forest service for the possible addition of a repeater to the forest service antenna. The cost will be shared by Round Lake and Spider Lake. A propagation study will be done at the potential site and discussion was held regarding type of equipment will be required. Because of the potential cost of placing the repeater on either the Round Lake or Spider Lake tower, another possibility would be to find a spot that would work in either Round Lake or Spider Lake and put up a very long pole with an antenna on top. DSC advised that depending on the placement and geography, this could be an alternative plan and it would be a lot less expensive.

Hucker reported that he has received the 2019 grant application. Input from the road crew is needed as next year’s right-of-way grant must be very specific on what will be done.

Fall brush days will be from August 30th through September 21st from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Solid Waste – Brandt reported that he spoke with a representative from Republic Services regarding the new contract. It was to be emailed to the town before the meeting but was not received. He will contact Republic again about the contract and the status on the bear proof dumpster. He reported that the annual recycling report was accepted by the state.

Discussion was held regarding the reinstallation of the electric fence. Cerman will make arrangements for either an electrician or fencing company to install the fence.

Clerk’s Report
Other Correspondence – A letter was received from the Sawyer County Highway Department regarding County Bridge/Culvert Aid for 2019. The town does not meet the criteria for aid.

A letter was received from Century Link advising that construction of telephone facilities would begin on
8-27-18 on Upper A Rd. at the north end near Lost Land Lake. Matchett will review and report back to McGuiness.

A reminder that a primary election will be held on August 14th. Polls will be open from 7 AM to 8 PM.

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

Boss will stay on as the Zoning Administrator until a replacement is appointed and plans to remain as the UDC inspector and an Assistant Zoning Administrator thereafter.

Discussion Regarding Comprehensive Plan Update

Cody Kamrowski from Northwest Planning Commission came to the Plan and Review Commission to go thru the Comprehensive Plan draft. A page by page review of the draft and maps was undertaken. There will be a public hearing scheduled in the coming weeks. Before the public hearing, the draft will be uploaded to the Town of Spider Lake website for review and arrangements can be made to review a hard copy at Town Hall.

Discussion of County Metallic Mining Ordinance

Hucker attended the Sawyer County Zoning Committee hearing in July. The County’s ordinance can require a CUP or a local agreement.

The Commission agreed that Hucker should ask the Town’s attorneys to revise the ordinance so it could be used by the town.

07/17/18 – Road Committee Meeting Minutes

TOWN OF SPIDER LAKE, SAWYER CO., WI
ROAD COMMITTEE MEETING
JULY 17, 2018

The Town of Spider Lake Road Committee meeting was called to order by Committee Chair McGuiness at 2:00 PM. Present were McGuiness, Hucker, Brandt and Lead Worker Mark Matchett. Clerk Ferda was absent.

Road Markers – Hucker stated this item is on the agenda due to a statement made by road crew worker Nelson at the town board meeting. Nelson stated that there are markers on some of the roads that he perceives to be unsafe. He was referencing markers that former road crew worker, Diem, placed at certain locations so that objects such as large rocks could be seen. Diem had explained the markers were there so that plow blades would not be caught on any obstructions while plowing. Hucker advised that if any road worker sees any unsafe conditions, it should be reported to McGuiness or himself immediately. Hucker stated that Nelson is entitled to his opinion; however, when a statement is made at a public meeting that conditions are dangerous and no one has reported it, it is not a good thing. Hucker suggested that if Matchett feels these markers are unsafe, then he should remove them and report it. If not, then Nelson will have to accept it. Hucker stated that safety is of the utmost importance. The markers are t-bar fence posts.
Discussion was held about other types of materials that could be used for markers. Matchett will review the markers and get back to McGuiness.

Culverts – Matchett reported that temporary repairs have been made on the culvert at the far end of Tews Rd. near Boersma Rd. and also on FR 203 near Perch Lake. The culvert on Green Point Rd. has decreased and is no rougher than the rest of the road. Regarding the three culverts that the Forest Service supplied, the road crew can replace the culvert on FR 328 because it is dry. The first culvert on FR 203 has water on both sides of the road and will need to be investigated as to what is causing the water before it can be replaced and the last culvert will be installed during a dry spell. Matchett reported that the Forest Service will be opening bids tonight for the culverts on FR 205 (Upper A). The work is scheduled to be completed by June of 2019 but could possibly be completed before this winter.

Discussion and Possible Action on the Town Hall Road Project Bid – NWBE was contacted and the engineer will not be able to attend the meeting. Motion was made by Hucker and 2nd by Brandt to accept the only bid received (Antczak Construction). All in favor. Motion carried. Motion was made by Hucker and 2nd by McGuiness to authorize NWBE to execute change orders to the accepted bid as needed subject to checking with a road committee member to make sure the proposed changes are acceptable. All in favor. Motion carried.

Motion to adjourn was made by Brandt and 2nd by Hucker. All in favor. Motion carried.
