2018 MINUTES

MINUTES OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD BOARD MEETING

June 14, 2018 (Subject to approval at the July 16, 2018 Board Meeting)

 

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Jeff Ziebell.  All Board members and 9 citizens were present.

The minutes from the May 10, 2018, meeting were read and approved.

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

For public input, we were advised that there have been some complaints that the assessors have not been meeting the times set for appointments.  We believe that they will be completing their visits to properties in the coming week or so.  It was also questioned if the assessors turn over to the county any changes they find that have been made to properties without obtaining the necessary permits. All building permits that are issued by the county are forwarded to the assessor and building inspector as we receive them.

The application of Chris and Carolyn Gosdeck for a conditional use permit was reviewed.  The Gosdecks were not able to be at the meeting; however, they would like to operate a canoe and kayak rental business.  There is already a pole shed in place for storage.  After discussion, Joe Donnelly made a motion to grant the conditional use permit.  Jason Hoffman seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The application of Randy Schultz for a driveway permit was reviewed.  Joe Donnelly has looked at the planned driveway site.  After discussion, Jeff Ziebell made a motion to grant the driveway permit.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The listing of Liquor, Soda, Tobacco, Mobile Home and Operators’ Licenses was reviewed.  Background checks have been performed on all applicants.  Joe Donnelly made a motion to approve the issuance of all licenses with discussed corrections and additions to the listing.  Jason Hoffman seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The letter that we have received from the Village of Johnson Creek regarding the fire contract was read.  The current contract will not be renewed and they would like to schedule a meeting to discuss future contracts.  We will wait to see when a meeting is scheduled.  All Board members will attend the meeting if possible.

The Amendments to the Jefferson County Zoning Ordinance Section 11.05 was reviewed.  Changes are being made to comply with Wisconsin Statutes.  After discussion, Joe Donnelly made a motion to approve the amendment.  Jeff Ziebell seconded the motion and the motion passed.

A discussion followed regarding the date of our next meeting.  We will meet on Monday, July 16th at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Hall.

Road work to be completed was discussed.  We are planning to pulverize and sealcoat several roads.  A listing of the exact descriptions of work will be advertised in the Watertown Daily Times and the Western Builder.  The ad will publish twice in each paper.  Bids are to be open on July 16th at 7:30 p.m. at our next board meeting.

Small repairs to Church Road and Hubbleton Road have been completed.

Chairman Ziebell questioned if our Comprehensive Plan is based on the 1999 Jefferson County Zoning Plan or the revised 2000 Jefferson County Zoning Plan.  If it is based on the 1999 Zoning Plan, we may want to make an amendment to our current Comprehensive Plan.  This would bring us up to date with the Jefferson County regulations.  We will review our plan and take further action at the July meeting.

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 8:23 p.m.  

                                                                                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                                                                                Karen Schadt, Clerk

 


MINUTES OF THE TOWN OF MILFORD BOARD MEETING

The Board meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Jeff Ziebell.  Supervisor Joe Donnelly and 9 citizens were present.

The minutes from the April 12, 2018, meeting were read and approved.

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

For public input, it was questioned what the Hubbleton property is priced at.  It was explained that it originally started at $21,000.00 and is now at $19,900.00.  We currently have a six month contract with a realtor.  It was questioned what would happen if an offer is received that needs a decision before a meeting is held.  At that point, a special board meeting would be called.

The application for the County Road Aid and Bridge Aid were reviewed.  Jeff Ziebell made a motion that we will not be participating in the road or bridge aid this year.  Joe Donnelly seconded the motion and the motion passed.

The assessors will be starting to visit properties in the coming weeks.

The inspection of roads has been completed.   Zabel Lane and Erb Wrensch Road need to be pulverized and double sealcoated.  There is a culvert on Church Road that needs works.  Reichert Lane has some damage from plowing.  There are some other roads that need work.  A preliminary budget will be completed and then the work will be  put out for bids.

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 7:50 p.m.  

                                                                               

                                                                                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                                                                                Karen Schadt, Clerk

During public input, the following items were discussed:

  2. Tim Walsh asked what the wages currently are for the board members and how the wages are set.  He was advised that wages are set by the citizens at the annual meetings.  Following discussion of current wages and when changes had last been made, Tim Walsh made a motion to increase the clerk’s wages by $75.00 a month.  Millie Ziebell seconded the motion and the motion passed.  This increase will take effect in May of 2019.
