Issue Date: May 18, 2022
At its monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 10, Athelstane Town Board approved the re-appointment of Scott Durian and Daniel Johnson to the Planning Commission for new 3-year terms ending in April of 2025.
The financial portion of the meeting was called to order at 6:30 p.m., and the regular monthly meeting was called to order by Town Chair Kelly Barnes at 7 p.m. Supervisors David Jose and Denis DeJardin were present along with Treasurer Greg Reinhardt, Clerk Janice M. DuChateau and five members of the public.
Chairman Barnes reported that he had met with Pete Vilas from Marinette County to discuss expanding the Park and Ride to double its size for safety reasons, to hopefully eliminate parking on the sides of the road when the lot is full. "In all of Marinette County, our Park and Ride is used the most," Barns said, adding that he will apply for a grant through the snowmobile ATV registration funding to help with the cost and no tax dollars will be used for this project.
Barnes said Pat Brien of Mid County Library in Wausaukee had asked him to mention that an open house for the new Municipal Center, which includes the new library quarters, will be held on Saturday, June 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Fire Chief Scott Durian reported the Fire Department had one meeting, two trainings, and one pipeline training in the past month. They had four calls for wires down due to the storms.
Dan Johnson reported the Planning Commission report had a 3-town meeting with Silver Cliff and Amberg. Land division and subdivision issues were discussed.
Treasurer's report by Reinhardt showed the town had an overall ending balance of $582,286.66. All vouchers had been reviewed and approved for payment a the financial portion of the meeting. Minutes were approved as prepared by DuChateau.
Kelly LaCount reported the highway crew has been getting caught up with the grading of the roads. He said two culverts needed to be replaced on Benson Lake Road between Tower Road and Thompson Road because they were plugged by beavers and had collapsed.
