The Lake Mills EMS representative was in attendance and went over some enlightening statistics about EMS calls in the last year for the Town of Milford.  He discussed accident prone areas within our township that were popular in 2020.  He also encouraged attendance of the township to a meeting that the Lake Mills Fire Department was having on December 15th.  He also the township of details of the EMS and Fire contracts that we have with the area emergency crews and how their response times are within 10 minutes for Lake Mills EMS calls.

All budget items on November 30th, 2020 were discussed and approved as presented at the Budget Meeting.

The implementation of Fire and/or Emergency fees were discussed and how the township can follow other area municipalities to generate a small offset to the rising costs of our fire and EMS contract costs.  After much discussion, it was decided to table this topic for next month’s town board meeting and board members will be inquiring to area municipalities and the WTA to see what our options are and how to implement them.

The topic was discussed about the driveway permit fee increasing for 2021 to $200.  Matt Kaminski motioned to approve this increase and Steve Kube seconded the motion and the motion passed.

Steve Kube mentioned road closed signs that will be seen for Manske Road and French Road for culvert replacements, please abide by the construction workers requests and do not use these roads at this time while working on culverts because drivers will not be able to pass through these roads when the cross road culverts are being replaced.

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Matt Kaminski.  All board members and 4 citizens were present.

The minutes from the April 9th, 2020, meeting were read by Trisha Miller.  Matt Kaminski motioned to approve and Jason Hoffman seconded motion.

The treasurer’s report was read by Kathy Redmer.  Jason Hoffman motioned to approve Matt Kaminski seconded the motion.

Public Input items were discussed.  Linda Funk had submitted via email to the board a letter requesting that it be considered by the board to lower fees for the 2020-2021 liquor licenses for all of the township taverns due to the recent economic and social pandemic that has been occurring.  The board discussed and decided to uphold the current fee schedule into the 2020-2021 liquor license year to the same fees that have been in the past.

Jason Hoffman had been contacted by Harold Zirbel regarding the boat launch @ Hubbleton.  The previous board had agreed to help fund a partial portion of this project up to $500 upon completion.  The current board agreed, once this project is completed, the Town of Milford will pay up to $500 to the vendor completing this project upon receipt of a bill presented to the board.

The canoe launch on Olsen Road was discussed – citizens are using this launch as a small boat launch with vehicles and trailers being parked along Olsen Road.  This is not acceptable, signage and a barricade will be put up by the township to help prevent this in the future. 

Trisha Miller verified with board members that Culvert Aid monies that are applied for the 2019-2020 season (received in 2021) need to be applied for by 6/30/20, therefore all billings and culvert work needs to be turned in and completed  by 5/31/20 in order to properly apply for Culvert Aid.

Kathy Redmer submitted to the board for signatures by the chairman an overdraft protection automatic transfer form for the Bank of Lake Mills.  This is to protect the town of any overdraft fees that may occur by performing an automatic transfer from one account to the other at the Bank of Lake Mills in the event of an overdraft to occur.

The 2020 Road Maintenance budget was discussed  to inform the township that it is possible that the board may need to obtain a Road Maintenance loan this year due to the amount of road maintenance that needs to occur to obtain more road aid from the state.  In the two previous years (2018 in particular), the township did not spend enough of their own funds in road maintenance, therefore in order to receive proper road aid from the state for the year 2022, the town of Milford needs to spend an additional $25,000 above and beyond the normal 2020 requirements of expenditures in road maintenance in order to be eligible to receive additional funds close to the amount of $50,000.

The Annual Meeting had been postponed to May 19th, 2020 due to the safer at home orders from Gov Evers.  Matt Kaminski motioned to move that postponed date to June 2nd, 2020 which is after the safer at home order is lifted.  Steve Kube seconded the motion and the motion passed. 

The 2020 Road Maintenance Bids received were read by Jason Hoffman and reviewed by the board.  Matt Kaminski motioned to approve, and Jason Hoffman seconded all bids presented. 

The listing of bills to be paid were reviewed.

There being no further business to come before the Board, a motion was made by Matthew Kaminski to adjourn the meeting.  Jason Hoffman seconded the motion and the motion passed. The meeting was adjourned by Matthew Kaminski at 8:17 pm.
