Wagner Board Holds Special Meet For Bills
Issue Date: April 4, 2019
Wagner Town Board met in special session on Thursday, March 21 to approve payment of some bills that needed to be settled before the next regularly scheduled meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, just prior to the 6:30 p.m. Annual Town Meeting. At the Town Meeting, citizens, not the board as such, have authority to make motions and vote on numerous issues.
Attending the 6 p.m. special meeting on March 21 were Chairperson Lynn Hickey; Supervisors Mollie Arthur and Ed Delfosse; Treasurer Linda Larochelle; Clerk Cassie Brown, and five members of the public.
During time for public input, Greg Polomis asked why they needed to hold a special meeting. Hickey explained the action items included payments that needed to be addressed prior to the next monthly meeting.
Conrad Larochelle asked for a motion to upgrade Cassie Brown's "Clerk" name plate from hand written to printed.
The agenda had provided for possible approval of March 12, meeting minutes, but Arthur and Delfosse agreed to take no action.
Treasurers report ending on February 28 was discussed but no action was scheduled and none was taken.
Next on the agenda were considerations of Fire Department carryover funds and issuing a check to Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development for an Unemployment Insurance payment due on Monday, March 25.
Hickey and Larochelle explained that the January and February 2019 minutes did not reflect authorization of carryover funds to Fire Department due to a question on the amount. There was also a question regarding how the funds would be issued as this would be a reimbursement for an invoice paid to HMA Fire directly by the Fire Department. The board agreed to issue a check directly to the Fire Department in the amount of $17,622.23. Don Willan will provide backup documentation including a reimbursement form, a copy of the invoice eligible for reimbursement and proof of payment.
Next the board discussed an electronic funds transfer to the Department of Workforce Development for an Unemployment Insurance payment that was due on Monday, March 25. Brown stated that a non-filing penalty in the amount of $360.72 was paid due to a missing return for fourth quarter of 2018. The electronic transfer and special meeting to authorize it were needed because payment was due Monday, March 25, prior to next scheduled meeting date on Tuesday, April 16.
