MINUTES OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD BOARD MEETING 

September 8th, 2022 

 

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:37 p.m. by Chairman Steve KubeSteve Kube, Tony Schadt, Duane Bennett and 9 citizens were present. 

 

The minutes from the August 14th, 2022 meeting were read by Trisha MillerTony Schadt motioned to approve the minutes as read and Duane Bennett seconded the motion 

 

The treasurer’s report was read by Trisha MillerDuane Bennett motioned to approve the report as read, Tony Schadt seconded the motion.   

 

For Public Input, the following items were discussed: 

 

Trisha Miller mentioned a question that was asked from the Watertown postal service and Jefferson County Zoning Office about Reichert Lane regarding if it is spelled correctly on the road sign or not and if we could change it according to what it states on the county maps and on google mapsThe complaint was many times mail is mailed to the incorrect spelling and it becomes hard for the mail carrier to determine where addresses are located on this roadIt had come to be after discussions that the spelling will preside as how the road name is spelled on the physical road signIt was later on verified the road sign reads Reichert Lane – it was forwarded to Jefferson county Zoning Office that it will remain as such with the Town of Milford as Reichert Lane. 

 

Scot’s Construction bill arrived for much more than what the bid was acceptedThe original bid was for 98T at $190/T which would have been a total invoice amount for $18,620The final invoice came through for 154T at $190/T for a total of $29,260Steve Kube stated he approved 130T over the phone with Scot’s Construction, but was not aware of 154T and will be calling themThe check will not be mailed until Steve follows up with the Treasurer and gives her the clear to mail out the check. 

 

Steve Kube had talked with Fahrner and they have decided to not stand by their approved bid for Manske Road chip sealing if it is completed this late in the season and will be doing it first thing available next season 2023, honoring the same contracted price as original bid was approved. 

 

Steve Kube informed the attendees that Wilke’s last day of his term ended and that the EMS/Fire contracts with Lake Mills will be in discussion againUpdates will be given as the Board receives them. 

 

Steve Kube brought up Year to Date budget notifications and status reports being provided to the boardHe mentioned that he has been asking for the last three years for monthly reports, but only a few times has it been producedThe topic came up again about having QuickBooks on both Clerk and Treasurer laptops and how the audit suggested thisTrisha Miller reminded those in attendance as it has been mentioned numerous times in the past, in 2019 it was not a true audit, it was a minor review that was conducted.  This was primarily completed as a review rather than a true audit due to cost.  Trisha Miller spoke to the representative in 2019 about the results of the review and provided and read an entire summary to the Town of Milford on what was suggested at that time based on her discussion with the representativeIt was determined from the representative at Capitol Accountants that there is not a need to duplicate QuickBooks on both Clerk and Treasurer computers, and it would be a waste of time and efforts if this duty was duplicated by both positionsThere is legally adequate dual control in place at this time in the Town of Milford between the duties and transactions being performed.  Between the clerk putting together the bills to be paid, the treasurer writing the checks, the clerk entering all accounting transactions into QuickBooks, the treasurer doing a monthly bank reconciliation, and the final control of the chairman and board signing off on all checks and electronic transactions it would be very hard for an error or illegal actions to take place with all of that in place.  Steve Kube motioned for the reporting to be provided to the Board regarding the budget status of the township every month going forwardTony Schadt seconded the motion and the motion passed. 

 

The 2000 International plow truck was officially sold on August 15th and money has been received from the auction.

At the July meeting, it was inquired by Steve Kube for someone to inquire to the insurance company about the mold that is coming about in the basement from the various leaks from the water heater back in winter and now the water pumpHe has put a dehumidifier down there, but it has not cleared up the moldTrisha Miller contacted our insurance representative, and many questions were asked that need to be answeredQuestions such as: when did this for sure happen, what kind of walls are in the area of mold, what was the root cause of the initial water damage that we believe caused this mold to come about, what was tried to clean up thus far, insurance needs picturesThe representative also stated that more often than not, mold claims are not approved – in this case, a mold claim that originally happened back in winter time that is just now being claimedIf we choose to try and claim, we need to submit pictures of the mold, we also need to try and clean it up with bleach water and disinfectant and see if that takes it away, as well as get him answers to all of his questionsThen giving him answers to the questions he asked, a claim would be submitted and we would have to wait on determination of approval at that timeSteve Kube stated he will try and see if bleach water and disinfectant will resolve the mold issue and report results to the next meeting. 

 

Trisha Miller gave an update on the .GOV email domain project – it has been determined that this will not only be time consuming, but this project will also need some professional IT advice and setup in order to proceed properlyIt was suggested to contact Cheney Systems (our website domain provider), they might be able to helpTrisha agreed to proceed to contact a professional IT company so this project can move forward.
