THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Town Stephenson Gets 9 Mechanic Applications
A Special Town of Stephenson Board meeting held Jan. 4 was called to order by Chairman Kudick at 7:35 pm. He led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance. Present besides Kudick were Supervisors Rick Kikulski, Jeff Lieuwen, Kevin Solway, and Jim Stradal, Clerk Elaine Olson and four other persons in attendance.
Solway moved to adopt the agenda, with budget amendments removed and was seconded by Stradal.
Solway made a motion to follow the recommendations of the Personnel Committee concerning applications for the Public Works mechanic applicants.
CSM 2016-14 for the Gottschalk Survivor Trust was corrected and mailed back to the clerk. Lieuwen moved to approve the map with the corrections.
Committees to report were Buildings and Grounds.
Stradal opened the meeting at 7 pm with Kudick, Lieuwen, Kikulski, Solway, Clerk Olson, and four others in attendance.
Lieuwen gave the Committee a sheet showing three options suggestions for the Town for the land that KC Stock asked to purchase off Pheasant Drive. He is looking for direction as to what the Town is requiring. He already understands that Mr. Stock must agree to construct a blacktopped cul de sac to meet Town road standards. Public Works Superintendent, Craig Baeten stated that options 1 or 2 would be the better ones for him for snow plowing. Following discussion, Solway recommended to send to the Board option 2.
In Personnel Committee nine applications were received for the Public Works mechanic position. Solway made a motion to give the applications to the Public Works Superintendent to look at, choose the three best applicants, discuss them with the Road Chair, and have them interview with who the Board determines.
At the Ordinance Committee Lieuwen stated the Ordinance covers garages, however, there needs to be a change in the permit process. Right now, they are only inspected when there is electrical. It needs to be revised to state that inspections need to be done when there are stairs, a raised floor, or plumbing. Fees need to be added to cover the extra inspection expense. After some discussion, Solway asked that Lieuwen works with the Building Inspector to define the changes in the fee schedule and then it can be worked in to the Ordinance. Lieuwen felt the shed ordinance is more restrictive and will not have to be revised.
In discussion on an Ordinance to protect Town roads, Kikulski stated he has been working with the Wisconsin Towns Association attorney to help with changes that need to be made to Title 6, Chapter 4 of the Driveways; Culverts ordinance. They are looking at changing the verbiage to temporary and permanent in sub 3 and adding that a two week notice is required before using the entries. He will continue to work with the attorney and when he gets it finalized, he will go back to the Committee.
