Town Athelstane To Buy Compactor for Recycling

At the regular monthly meeting of the Athelstane Town Board on May 9 Chairman John Dobratz presided at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall. All officers were present besides 16 members of the public. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

During public comment time Gary Welsch asked if the town ever considered having an ordinance pertaining to sex offenders and he was told the town already has one.

Several property owners present had both concerns and complaints about the noise coming from the Pine Ridge Raceway, the hours of operation and that quads are going to be added to the race schedule. They asked if the track could be relocated to a more remote area. They were told the track has been in existence for 19 years and does not open until 7 AM and the bikes that are racing are stock. The town does not have a noise ordinance.

The county has a noise ordinance from 7 AM to 11 PM. Kelly Barnes, Chairman of the Planning Commission, reiterated what the town board said, that the town has no zoning and statutorily the town has no control over the race track. If the town made a noise ordinance, it would be the same for the entire town, not just the race track.

The Clerk presented minutes of the previous month which were accepted as were all bills paid.

Fire Chief Scott Durian gave the department report noting they had one meeting, two training meetings, two small wildland fires, and one mutual aid with Silver Cliff that was cancelled enroute. The meat raffle held at the Bull Pen on April 22 netted $1,368 for the fire department. Welsch handed out brochures on wildland fires and checking the fire danger for burning permits.

The Planning Commission report given by David Jose was of May 2 with all members present and two guests. Discussed amendments to ordinance #7 and to ordinance #12. They also had three town meetings in May.



Greg Reinhardt treasurer's report included March 31 Balance $377,325.16, receipts to number 831 $63,736.32, disbursements $21,564.37, and month ending April 30 $419,497.11.

$10,021.26 was Checking, $132,196.40 Tax Money Market, $162,636.57 General Money Market, and $114,642.88 Certificate of Deposit for the $419,497.11 total.

Public Works finished mixing sand and salt and gravel is hauled on Thompson Road. They are still working on the loader. Scott Construction should be able to start the single seal coat on Benson Lake Road in June and Peters Concrete will begin crushing gravel in June.

On motion of Harold Tesch the State Debt Collection Initiative through the Wisconsin Department of Revenue has to be pursued on unanimous okay. Second of motion David Jose.

Among new business was discussion on purchasing a compactor for the Recycling Center. The town could save approximately $6,000 on tonnage fees annually. There should also be savings on hauling fees. This will be discussed further with Waste Management at a noticed meeting.

There was a problem with emergency telephone numbers at Marinette County Dispatch during the recent incident in the town. They said they could not reach any of the elected officials, but according to the elected officials, no one called them. Chairman John Dobratz will contact the county to resolve this.

On motion of Harold Tesch to accept the proposed amendment to Ordinance #7: License/Registration/Permit " to change the "After the Fact Permit Fee" to $250 and add Provisional retail and operators licenses verbiage and fees. Approval was unanimous.

Accepted was the proposed amendment to Ordinance #12: Private Driveway Standards " to change "any named roadway" to any town or county roadway.

An Operators' license for Mackenzie Bryant was approved.
