Athelstane Awards County Bid For Perch Lake Road

Athelstane--Road bid award, borrowing $100,000, gravel purchase, and parking ticket cost were among items of business when the Athelstane Town Board met Wednesday, Aug. 13, with 26 persons in attendance.

Two bids for hot mix blacktopping nine-tenths of a mile of Perch Lake Road were received. They were Marinette County Highway Department at $116,000 and Northeast Asphalt at $119,408. The project was awarded to Marinette County Highway Department.

The Board also approved borrowing $100,000 for a three year period from Bank North to pay for the project. Chairman John Dobratz reported the borrowing will not affect the town tax levy.

Also approved was the purchase of 5,000 tons of gravel from Marinette County at a price of $2.50 per ton.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, three persons were heard.

Jim Brennan asked if the gravel roads were ever going to be graded or at least take the washboard out of them. He said they have not been graded all summer and this is the worst the gravel roads have been in the 11 years he has lived here.

Jerry Readman mentioned that the town has paid $2,800 for surveying and tree cutting on Bolander Landing Road to improve the public boat landing. He asked if the Glen Lake Association, Marinette County or the DNR should be paying part of that cost. He was told the land for that road was donated to the town in 1950 and the town has not made any improvements to the road since then. The road is approximately 700 feet long and is a town road that the town receives state aid for. The road and parking area for the boat landing were improved for the general safety of the public.

Harold Tesch reminded everyone to clean up the brush by their fire number signs or purchase new signs, if necessary, so they are clearly visible by the fire department, rescue squads and first responders. This is for safety of the residents.

In other business, the Board authorized Treasurer Greg Reinhardt to issue no parking tickets for violations on Bolander Landing Road. The fine is $35 per ticket.

Accepted was the report of Reinhardt showing funds on hand of $225,147.05. It consists of $3,727.90 in checking, $64,381.62 tax money, $46,618.23 general money market and $110,419.30 in a certificate of deposit.

Mike Cassidy introduced three representatives from Marinette County Health & Human Services which provides a full array of services to citizens including economic support and energy services. Energy and propane issues were discussed and price gouging during the recent propane crisis is being investigated.

Reinhardt suggested having a local command center during crisis situations.

In other business:

* Harold Tesch reported the fire department had no incidents in July. Two meetings/drills were held with 22 members attending for a total of five hours of training

* David Jose in the Planning Commission report said they are continuing to review the ordinances and should be ready to present to the town board for approval in the next several months.

* Were informed on the merger of the Bank North with Stephenson National Bank and Trust. Customers will need to obtain new checks because the routing number will change. Routing number changes for electronic deposits and withdrawals will be handled by the bank.

* Will keep the 2014-15 Snowplow Contract the same with exceptions for custom plowing, which will be identified.

* Set the fee for Class C Wine licenses at $50.

* Approved a Class B Beer and a Class C Wine license and cigarette and tobacco licenses for Sally M. and John C. Nelson for Northwoods Bar on Benson Lake Road.
