2019 MINUTES

MINUTES OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION

OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD

MARCH 14, 2019

                       The Planning Commission meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Chairman Steve Duwe.  Donald Hepp, Lynette Pauli, Steve Duwe, Clem Mess, Tony Schadt and 27 citizens were present.

                The minutes of the February 18, 2019, meeting were read and approved as presented.

                The Application for Rezoning of Timothy Windl and Helen Zahn was reviewed.  They are requesting the creation of two 2-acre lots off of existing farmland.  Chairman Steve Duwe passed out the information he has obtained from the Jefferson County Zoning Office to the Planning Commission members.  A copy of the information is attached hereto.  Mr. Windl had originally been advised by the Jefferson County Zoning Office that the proposed plan was allowable.  Upon further review, the Zoning Office has confirmed that the requested split is not possible for the reasons set forth on the attachment.  Mr. Windl asked if the Planning Commission could wait until next month to vote on this matter so that he would have time to talk with Jefferson County and make changes if needed.  Chairman Duwe advised that since this was a second meeting on the proposal, a vote should be taken on this plan.  Tony Schadt made a motion to deny the requested splits and requested that Mr. Windl bring forth a new proposal if he would like.  Clem Mess seconded the motion and the motion passed.

                The Application of Eggert Acres, LLC for a rezoning and a conditional use permit were presented by Charles Eggert.  Mr. Eggert advised that the Jefferson County Zoning Office is requesting an A-3 one acre lot around the house (Lot 1) and the remainder of the property would be zoned A-2 (Lot 2).  The entire parcel will be approximately 5.5 acres.  The preliminary survey was reviewed. A conditional use permit is needed for the purchasers of this property to operate an agricultural equipment repair company.  Since the applications include a rezoning, this matter will be heard again on April 11, 2019. 

             There being no further business to come before the Planning Commission at this time, Clem Mess made a motion to adjourn the meeting.  Tony Schadt seconded the motion and the meeting was adjourned at 7:24 p.m.

                                                                                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                                                                                Karen Schadt,

                                                                                                                Clerk

Attachment to March 14, 2019 Planning Commission Meeting Minutes

Information presented by Chairman Steve Duwe

Obtained from Jefferson County Zoning Office

Initial determination by zoning was wrong because they didn’t map that the land Windl bought was frozen for development.

The original parent parcel had 2 prime lot splits available to it.  Woolovers got one where they built their house.  One prime split remains.  That split remains with the property with the original farmstead.  It does not go to “first come-first serve.”  The 40.4 acres that Windl bought does not have any lot splits coming to it.  That land is considered “frozen” which means no rezoning for development.  Adding the approximate 14 acres that was purchased by Windl, making the new parcel over 50 A does not give it two lot splits.  The 14 A parcel is considered prime land because it contains soil type Wauconda (2P) and Wacousta (3P) and Keowns (3P).  Being wooded has no bearing to prime vs. non prime.

In reviewing a consolidation of parcels for an A-3 lot relocation, the lot from which the transfer would come from must have been able to have a lot or lots (A-3) on it.  Since the 14 acre parcel was landlocked it would not be able to have any A-3 splits because it has no access to the road.  Attaching it to a frozen parcel does not give it access to the road for a lot split.




MINUTES OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD BOARD MEETING

February 18, 2019

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Jeff Ziebell.  All Supervisors and 10 citizens were present.

The minutes from the January 10, 2019, meeting were read and approved as presented.

The treasurer’s report was read and approved as presented.  Karen Schadt questioned why an entry had not been made to add the check back in to the checking account that was made out to Harry’z Boondocks in 2017 and now required to be written to Jefferson County as unclaimed funds.  Kathy explained that she just removed it from her outstanding check list.  Karen also questioned the Dog Deposit made on December 31, 2018, in the amount of $140.00. The dog license list shows $135.00 and a written note of a refund to Jeff Frey of $5.00.  Kathy explained that he actually paid $15.00.   We are writing a $5.00 check to Jeff Frey at this meeting.

For Public Input, Kathy Redmer brought up that Al Kuenzi paid his taxes and only paid for two garbage pickups even though he is billed for seven garbage pickups.  Last year he paid for all seven charges but feels he only needs to pay for two.  He has been to the county and is trying to change it with them.  He will need to come to the Town Board to have this matter considered.

Bob Brassfield was wondering how we can know if Advanced Disposal will be collecting garbage and recyclables on a Friday.  We advised that due to the weather conditions lately, Advanced has had to pull their trucks from collections.  We do receive a call from them when this happens.  If there is time, it is posted on our website or citizens can call the board members to check.

Kathy Redmer questioned why all road labor for January was not turned in for payment this month. 

Chairman Jeff Ziebell brought up that people are plowing snow across the roads from their driveways.  He advised that it is illegal to plow snow across the roads after they are plowed by the town.  Where this has occurred, he has been stopping to talk with the people if they are around.  This may be something that should be included on next year’s tax letter.

The applications of Darlene Swanson and David Meyer for Operator’s Licenses were reviewed.  Joe Donnelly made a motion to grant the applications.  Jason Hoffman seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The town has been approached by the Farm Technology Days to see if they would be able to use the town’s end loader during the show.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion to allow the use of the end loader.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The issue of tampering in the town shop was discussed.  Gas, furnaces and circuit breakers have been turned off.  The door code has been changed and there has not been a problem since.

A discussion followed regarding transferring some of the Money Market funds remaining at the end of 2018 to the Equipment Fund for future use.  Joe Donnelly made a motion to transfer $20,000.00 from the Money Market Account to the Equipment Fund.  Jeff Ziebell seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The letter from the Towns Association regarding the Town Advocacy Council was reviewed.  After discussion, Jason Hoffman made a motion that we join the Town Advocacy Council.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.  This fee will be included on the March statements.

The list of fire number signs to be ordered was reviewed.

 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, a motion was made by Joe Donnelly to adjourn the meeting.  Jason Hoffman seconded the motion and the motion passed. The meeting was adjourned at 8:34 p.m.  

                                                                                                                  Respectfully submitted,

                                                                                                                Karen Schadt, Clerk

Note From The Clerk concerning our Quick Book records:  The 2017 check to Harry’z Boondocks has been added back into the checking account as a voided check. This amount was written out to Jefferson County in January for unclaimed funds. An entry has to be made to maintain the accuracy of our records.   The dog deposit of December 31, 2018, will be entered as $140.00 for dog licenses collected.  The $5.00 check written to Jeff Frey will be entered as the refund of a dog license.

                       The Planning Commission meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Chairman Steve Duwe.  Donald Hepp, Lynette Pauli, Steve Duwe, Clem Mess, Tony Schadt and 8 citizens were present.

                The minutes of the September 13, 2018, meeting were read and approved as presented.

                The Application for Rezoning of Timothy Windl and Helen Zahn was presented by Mr. Windl.  They are requesting the creation of two 2-acre lots off of existing farmland.  He explained that it is non—prime land and eventually there will be a house on each lot.  The Planning Commission reviewed the preliminary survey and discussed other possible locations for the lots with Mr. Windl.  Since this is a rezoning application, the matter will be heard again at the Planning Commission meeting on March 14, 2019.

                There being no further business to come before the Planning Commission at this time, Tony Schadt made a motion to adjourn the meeting.  Clem Mess seconded the motion and the meeting was adjourned at 7:15 p.m.

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
