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.

During public input, Steve Duwe said that there was an article in the newspaper regarding the ATV/UTV routes and that some counties are regretting having established the routes.  Jeff Ziebell also stated that he has had contact with Jefferson County and they are not real in favor of establishing routes throughout the county.

There were no representatives from the Lake Mills School District nor Advanced Disposal present at the meeting.

After discussion regarding problems with garbage collection, the board decided to hold this month’s payment to Advanced Disposal until we are able to meet with them to discuss our concerns.

The application of Ed and Kenlyn Krausse for a driveway permit was reviewed.  The location of the driveway has been checked out.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion to grant the driveway permit.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The document from the Jefferson County Zoning Department regarding the Zastrow- Seubert preliminary survey was signed.  This matter was previously approved by the town board.

The fire contract with the Johnson Creek Fire Department is in the process of being approved by the various townships involved.  Our cost will be a little lower this year; but is expected to be higher next year.  The department is looking at buying a different ambulance.

The special charge for the curbside collection for the coming tax year needs to be determined.  After discussion of the annual increase in curbside collection charges, Jeff Ziebell made a motion to leave the special charge at $180.00 a year for a single family unit.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and motion passed.

An order for fire and street signs will be placed.

MINUTES OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD BOARD MEETING

SEPTEMBER 13, 2018

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Jeff Ziebell.  Supervisor Joe Donnelly and 25 citizens were present.  Supervisor Jason Hoffman was absent.

The minutes from the August 9, 2018, meeting were read and approved.

The treasurer’s report was read and approved as presented.  The board questioned the repayment of an erroneous check by Jill Hutchins that was listed on the August 2018 treasurer’s report.   Kathy Redmer explained that it was repayment of a check that had been issued over a year ago.  She explained that she had missed when the original check had cleared the bank and thought that it was outstanding.  When she checked with Jill, she didn’t have the check; and since a year had passed, she no longer remembered cashing the check. We had reissued the check to Jill and now Jill Hutchins had reimbursed us for the same amount when the entry of the new check into the clerk’s QuickBooks showed the error.

During public input, citizens questioned if there was a reason that QuickBooks isn’t used by both the clerk and treasurer.  Kathy Redmer said that she could but she didn’t know what the cost would be for the program. 

The application of Eggert Acres, LLC, was reviewed.  Charles Eggert is selling a 15 acre wooded parcel to an adjacent neighbor.  In order to do so, the county is requiring him to create a Natural Resource zone for the 15 acres from a portion of an existing A-1 parcel.  Joe Donnelly made a motion to approve the creation of the Natural Resource Zone for the 15 acres from the existing A-1 parcel.  Jeff Ziebell seconded the motion and the motion passed.    

Representatives from the Quad County ATV/UTV Runners were present.  They are asking for permission to use all of the town roads for ATV/UTVs.  They have new signage where you only post the entrances to the township and the club would take care of all of the signs. We were given a proposed map for the township and also copies of the various ordinances that other townships have enacted.  They advised that Act 193 has changed many of the regulations and Wisconsin Statutes 23.33 cover ATV/UTV usage.  Many items were questioned by the town board.  We will remain in contact and check on the county and state requirements as this request is considered.

The application of Debra Stults for a Driveway Permit was reviewed.  The location of the driveway has been reviewed.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion to grant the driveway permit and Joe Donnelly seconded the motion.  The driveway permit is granted.

The application of Ed and Kenlyn Krausse for a driveway permit was reviewed.  The board is not sure of the exact location of the driveway.  This matter will be tabled until next month to obtain more information.

The contracted road work has been completed.  It was questioned why neighbors were not notified when the work would be completed.  Supervisor Donnelly explained that we are dependent on the weather and the contractors’ schedules as far as when work can be completed.  He was present to be sure that access was maintained at all times.

The fire contract with the Johnson Creek Fire Department is still being negotiated.  We were also advised that the Watertown Rural Fire Department had recently needed to put new tires on the tender.  The old tires were sold.

Tammy Chwala was present to advise us that the Jefferson County Snowmobile Alliance Watercross has been rescheduled to September 22nd.  She also advised that they will not be selling beer and was requesting a revised permit. 

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, Joe Donnelly moved to adjourn the meeting. Jeff Ziebell seconded the motion and the meeting was adjourned at 8:45 p.m.  

                                                                              

                                                                                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                                                                                Karen Schadt, Clerk
