Chair Kranig asked to move to item 8 (b) on the agendaDiscussion on Resolution of Water Problems on St. Francis Drive East and West.  The majority of the residents in attendance were here to discuss this issue.  Chair Kranig explained that the Town’s responsibility lies with the maintenance of the road.  St. Francis Drive East is essentially a gravel road now due to the water problems that exist in that neighborhood that have damaged the road.  The Town would like the water problem issued resolved prior to paying for the cost to repair the road.    A number of residents had different recommendations on what they felt could be done.  Chair Kranig will call Greg Leonard with Land Conservation to see if that organization can do a water mitigation plan for this subdivision at no cost.  Chair Kranig again reminded the residents of that area that the Town is not responsible to correct the water problems that exist there.


Item 8 (a) Update on Town Drive Road Project – Chair Kranig reported that the plans and specifications for the work have been completed by the engineers and the project is now out for bids.  Bid deadline is June 20th


Chair Kranig asked to move to item 9 (a) on the agenda. – Picnic License for Seymour Ball Club.  A motion was made by Supevisor Running and seconded by Chair Kranig to approve the application for a Picnic License to sell beer at their event on June 15-17, 2018.   Motion carried


Chair Kranig asked to move to item 9 (e) on the agenda – CSM-2018-16 – Terry Moulton.  The CSM was reviewed that would divide off a 7.5 acre parcel from an 88.392 parcel of land and make a separate lot.  The board had no objections to this proposal.


Chair Kranig asked to move to item 9(g) on the agenda – Possible Assessor’s Plat – Peterson Ave.  Residents in attendance that live on Peterson Ave and Books Ave informed the board of a problem with their apparent lot lines after an area resident had their lot surveyed.  It appears from that survey, that everyone’s lot lines may be off by about 12’ into their neighbor’s lot.   The Town can authorize an Assessor’s Plat to be done that would redefine the lots for this area which would essentially leave the lots as they are now, but change the description of the lot to match the actual lot.  The cost of the Assessor’s Plat would initially be paid for by the Town, but the cost would eventually be paid by each property owner through a special assessment.  The area in question will be the east side of Peterson from Books Drive to Tower Ave  and both sides of Books Drive.  The Clerk was instructed to send out letters to all affected property owners about this proposal. 


Item 9(b) – Liquor Licenses – A motion was made by Supervisor Running to approve the applications for a Class B Combination Liquor and Fermented Beverage licenses to the Fox Run, LLC, Brown Hut and Eau Claire Rod and Gun Club.  Motion seconded by Chair Kranig.  Motion carried.


Item 9(f) – Energy Efficient Lighting at the Fire Station.   An estimate on changing out the lights at the Fire Station to something more efficient was reviewed.  Parker was instructed to get an updated estimate on the cost before a decision is made.


Item 8(d) Reconsideration of Town Advocacy Council Membership – Chair Kranig reported that according to the Wisconsin Towns Association newsletter, we can join the Town Advocacy Council at 50% of the annual cost if we do so prior to July 15th.   A motion was made by Supervisor Running to pay for the membership at a cost of $416.25 for 2018.  Chair Kranig second and the motion carried.
