THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Beecher Board Okays Amendments to Ordinances
Issue Date: August 9, 2017
The Beecher Town Board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 8 was called to order at 6 p.m. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited and all board members were present along with seven residents. Changes to agenda were a variance and discussion of the Municipal Judge.
Chris Gilligan requested a variance to move his garage three feet from the property line vs 10 feet in order to sell the property. Both property owners agreed in writing. Supervisor Dan Groy moved to grant the variance, seconded by Supervisor John Keeley.
Chairman Robert Gehri told the board here have been issues with the Municipal Judge not giving the town paperwork, receiving a check in the mail with no explanation as to what it was for, etc. The other towns involved are also not satisfied and some are pulling out of the shared municipal court. Paperwork to no longer be part of the shared court
will be sent in by the end of the month. A meeting to discuss the office with other towns will be held later this month.
Minutes of July 11 were read and accepted as was the Treasurer's report.
Recycling/garbage showed that in July 23.01 tons of garbage, 1.67 tons of recyclables and 3.72 tons of paper were collected.
There were four building permits and one fire sign.
In discussion of ongoing road improvement projects the crew worked on three culverts on River Road and the county may look at opening the county roads to ATV traffic. Residents on Krueger Road stated that the ATVs on their road are being more respectful since the town spoke with those causing concern.
Land Use Ordinance 6-13-17 was sent to Attorney Kim Coggins and he sent an amendment approved by the board.
Wisconsin Administrative Code SPS 327 was also sent by Attorney Coggins and to state rules were adopted as an ordinance.
