ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

 

TOWN OF MILFORD RESOLUTION NO. O8O92OI8

Town Transportation Resolution


Town Of Milford
County of Jefferson
State of Wisconsin


WHEREAS, local government in Wisconsin is responsible for about 90% of the road
miles in the state; and,

'WHEREAS, Wisconsin's diverse economy is dependent upon county and town roads, as
well as city and village streets and transit systems across the state; and,

WHEREAS, the Town of Milford and other local governments across Wisconsin have
been highlighting our unmet transportation needs in many different avenues including events
such as the historic Turnout for Transportation event in September of 2016 where local
governments in every region of this state held simultaneous meetings calling on the state
legislature to prioritize transportation and pass a sustainable funding package; and,

WHEREAS, while the increase in transportation funding for locals in the last budget was
certainly appreciated, they still aren't back to 2011 levels when you adjust for inflation; and,

WHEREAS, local governments continue to struggle to meet even the most basic
maintenance needs for our transportation system; and,

WHEREAS, states srurounding Wisconsin and across the country have stepped up with
sustainable funding plans for their state and local roads; and,

WHEREAS, Wisconsin will be at a competitive disadvantage if it does not implement a
revenue and spending plan that addresses both our lnterstates that were built in the 1950's and
60's and our local and state roads; and,

WHEREAS, levy limits do not allow local government to make up for the deterioration
of state funding; and,

WHEREAS, local governments would not be forced to turn to local wheel taxes or
increased borrowing or exceeding their lely limits if the state would finally pass a sustainable
funding plan for transportation; and,

WHEREAS, the Town of Milford recognizes that our state highway and interstate system
is the backbone of our surface transportation system and plays a vital role in the economy of
Wisconsin, and that both local and state roads need to be properly maintained in order for our
economy to grow; and,

WHEREAS, from a competitive standpoint, Wisconsin motorists pay significantly less
than any of our neighbors when you combine the annual cost of the state gas tax and vehicle
registration fees, 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Town of Milford to urge the Governor
and Legislature to Just Fix It and agree upon a long term, sustainable solution that includes a
responsible level of bonding and adjusts our user fees to adequately fund Wisconsin's
transportation system. Furthermore, the Town Board directs the Clerk to send a copy of this
resolution to our State Legislators and to Governor Scoff Walker.

Dated this 9th day of August, 2018

2018 MINUTES

MINUTES OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD BOARD MEETING

December 13, 2018

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Jeff Ziebell.  All Supervisors and 8 citizens were present.

The minutes from the November 8, 2018, meeting were read and approved.

The treasurer’s report was read and approved as presented.

For public input, Jason Hoffman said that he had attended the Jefferson County Towns Association meeting.  At the meeting, it was discussed that new fire districting will be coming in the future.  They also discussed the solar farms that are being planned.

The board reviewed the amendment to the Johnson Creek Fire Department contract.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion to table this matter until we have received a copy of the map that is referenced in the amendment.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.

 

An offer in the amount of $10,000.00 has  been received on the Hubbleton property.  It includes a provision that the buyer is to pay all of the closing costs.  A counter offer is proposed for $11,400.00 with the provision that a conditional use permit would be provided at no cost to the buyer.  The purchaser is planning to use the lot for outside storage of a boat and motor home.  Since this is being used for personal storage, no conditional use permit is needed.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion that the counteroffer be amended to exclude the language about a conditional use permit.  In the future, if the usage changed, the purchaser would need to apply for a conditional use permit at his own expense.  The closing should be completed by February 1, 2019.  Jason Hoffman seconded the motion and the motion passed.

Dates for the caucus were discussed.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion that the caucus be held on January 12, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. at the Milford Town Hall.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.

 Zoning documents, fire department reports, correspondence and the listing of bills to be paid were reviewed.

There being no further business to come before the Board, Jason Hoffman moved to adjourn the meeting. Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the meeting was adjourned at 7:56 p.m.  

                                                                                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                                                                                Karen Schadt, Clerk
