FIRE DEPARTMENT REPORT AND APPROVAL OF PURCHASES
Ken Orton was present and gave an oral report to the Board. There were no calls in the Month of March. Ken has sent in the DNR grant. They have received all of the equipment except for the phone. They have received around $7300.00 so far from their fundraiser. Orton stated that they have had an issue with a garage door opener and have tried to change the batteries. Overhead Door Company from Wausau looked at it and the receiver is junk. The Fire Department has also been having problems getting any of the remotes to work because of the steel building. There is a converter kit that will have a coax cable outside to allow them to work. It would cost approximately $710.00 to have all of the doors fitted with it. The Board was in agreement that this needed to be fixed. G. Hartman asked if they have a training and meeting attendance list. Orton stated that he will e-mail it to Grady. The Radio grant will be coming in this month. Orton stated that he is pretty sure that the Town will have to front the $10,000.00 and OJA will reimburse the town for the radios. G. Hartman, Bill Treder and Turgeon all agreed that the Town will cover the cost of the radios.
FIRST RESPONDER’S REPORT AND APPROVAL OF PURCHASES
Zeske was present and gave an oral report to the Board. There were five calls last month, 4 in the town of Crescent and one in Harrison. He will be sending five individuals to the first responder class, the cost of five to go is $1102.45 and each individual will purchase their own books. He has also applied for a pediatric jump kit and it is a 50/50 grant.
COUNTY BOARD SUPERVISOR’S REPORT
None. G. Hartman asked if anyone contacted Bob Martini to let him know that he will have a spot on the agenda every month to speak to the Board.
Ed Hughes was present (Harry was absent due to working in a fire tower). Hughes gave a handout showing how library checkouts are up over the last three years. Rhinelander library is up overall 4% whereas other libraries are down or equal to previous years. They are also short of staff right now and have an opening advertised right now. One of them is part-time and they have had 30 applicants. The full-time position that is open has had over 100 applications. They also got a grant to get some furniture and they have located some old tables from the 30’s that they are refinishing with money from the grant.
TOWN PLAN COMMISSION REPORT
Treder stated that a meeting was held last Wednesday to discuss the Bergstrom Ford Land Division. The Plan commission made a motion to recommend that the Board approve the Conditional Use Permit as presented.
UNIFORM DWELLING INSPECTOR’S REPORT
Discussion/Possible Decision RE: None
Discussion/Possible Decision RE: Certified Survey Map of Bergstrom of Rhinelander
Treder stated that the Town Plan Commission met last week and are recommending that the Board accept the proposed land split. Treder was in agreement with the plan commission, however, tonight he received a call from Bob Winat, DOT, and they have some concerns about the easement being only 20′. Treder called Joshua Prentice, REI Surveying. Prentice stated that the reason for the smaller easement is that when the original property was split there was a lawsuit between Bergstom and three small land divisions that needed an easement to get out. The DOT would like to see all of the lots have a 50′ easement so that if larger trucks need to get off of the highway they would be able to. Treder stated that he told Prentice that the Town can put contingencies on the approval of the division for them to make an agreement with the DOT. G. Hartman stated that he doesn’t know that the Town should state that a larger easement is needed when it is private property. Treder stated that he thinks we could approve it based upon there being an agreement between the DOT and Bergstrom. G. Hartman stated that he believes we should approve it regardless of what the DOT is requesting. Turgeon agrees with Hartman, we should approve the land division which is what has been brought before the Board. If the DOT and Bergstrom have a different issue with the easement they need to work that out. Treder stated that he believes that we could make an exception on the size of the lot due to the fact that this is going to be commercial property and therefore the land size wouldn’t need to be the same.
Motion by G. Hartman to approve the certified survey map as submitted by Bergstrom’s of Rhinelander contingent upon approval by Oneida County. Seconded by Turgeon. All aye. Motion carried.
Discussion/Possible Decision RE: Ordinance to Extend Town Officer Terms
Treder explained that due to recent election law changes any town offices expiring in 2013 will need to be extended by one week.
Motion by G. Hartman to approve Crescent Town Ordinance 2012-01 as written.
Seconded by Turgeon. All aye. Motion carried.
Motion by Turgeon to adjourn the meeting until after the Annual meeting. Seconded by G. Hartman. All aye. Motion carried.
Chairman Bill Treder called the meeting back to order at 8:05 p.m.
Discussion/Possible Decision RE: By Request – Administrative Review Permit
T. Hartman explained that Jim Hext is looking to have a storage unit on a lot of land next to Westside Shell to sell fireworks. Treder asked if the fire department has any concerns with selling fireworks next to a gas station. G. Hartman stated that in the application it states that they will be selling only legal fireworks. Treder stated that the law states that a seller can sell any fireworks, however, people can only use them if they have a permit.
Motion by G. Hartman to approve the administrative review permit by Jim Hext with the condition that the container must be moved by August 30, 2012. Seconded by Turgeon. All aye. Motion carried.
Discussion/Possible Decision RE: Reschedule May Meeting due to Election
May meeting rescheduled for May 9, 2012 at 6:00 p.m.
Discussion/Possible Decision RE: Approve Applications for Operator’s Licenses, Lisa Piasecki
Motion by G. Hartman to approve the operator’s license of Lisa Piasecki. Seconded by Turgeon. All aye. Motion carried.
