Town Wagner Considers New Gravel Quarry

Issue Date: August 22, 2019

Chairperson Steve Renikow, Sr. presided at the Wagner Town Board meeting on Aug. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall.

The Pledge of Allegiance was said and agenda approved.

Budget and municipal levy training for clerk and treasurer is Sept. 11 and per diem rate and mileage are to be paid by Town. Treasurer Linda Larochelle received notice of the school levy tax credit distribution from the WI Department of Revenue an Marinette County Treasurer will distribute the funds of $157,682.83 about Aug. 20.

Sup. Ed Delfosse stated the new locks have been installed. There were no speakers from the public to address the Board.

In discussion only the Treasurer's report ending July 31 balances were receipts of $2,468.82 for fire dues, $3.11 for exempt computer aid, $1,852.34 for July shared revenue, $162.73 for interest and $33,666.98 for transportation aid.

Treasurer Linda Larochelle transferred $60,000 from the money market account to the checking account to replenish funds for payables.

Mike Caylor of the Fire Department stated there were six calls since the July meeting and a total of 24 for the year. Of these two were for power lines down, one lift assist, one vehicle crash, one tree down and one EMS call with 247.5 man hours for training and maintenance including picnic hours. The picnic resulted in an estimated $6,000 profit. The brush truck is still waiting for parts. The Fire Department has added one new member and still accepting applications. Don Willan reminded the Board to issue the check for the Fire Department dues. The Board approved this check to be issued prior to the September meeting.

In Public Works, Chairperson Renikow stated there was patching done on Old Rail Road and chip sealing will begin soon. There was a complaint of flooding on Boat Launch Road There are several culverts in need of repair, so the Town will notify the property owners to fix culverts. William Woodward stated a resident would like to apply for job at the dump. The Board will keep his information on file, but the Town is not currently hiring.

Animal control officer Jerry Micksch stated there was one call for dogs on Wagner Rd.

Members considered Town Hall rental fees. Renikow stated there was a misunderstanding regarding the fees. The fees are $50 for residents and $100 for non-residents. These amounts are to be paid to the Town in two separate checks " each for half of the total fee. Half of the total fee is for the rental and the other half is for a deposit that is refundable upon inspection and approval by the housekeeper. If the Town Hall is not cleaned after an event, then half of the deposit is kept by the Town and the other half is paid to the housekeeper. Community organizations do not have to pay rental fees. Also, once the Town Hall is reserved contact the Board for arrangements to access the building prior to the event. Patty Michels questioned why there is a difference in price for residents. Renikow explained that a resident is defined as one who lives in the Town of Wagner and will pay at the applicable rate. Property owners who do not reside in the Town are not considered residents.

Also discussed was a list of all services provided by Town with applicable fees. Clerk Brown will create a document listing all services provided by the Town with applicable fees. She stated cash is reconciled through 2018 and will continue until current through 2019. The auditor will be contacted once the books are up to date.

The Board discussed budget transfer for Fire Department utility bills. Clerk Brown stated the Town will expense the Fire Department portion of the utility bill until the difference is caught up. The total amount is estimated to be $240.

Dogs at the Brix residence were discussed and resident Cheryl Brix attended the meeting to offer a solution. Brix stated the Pit Bull is no longer allowed outside, and none of the dogs will be outside if nobody is home. She also stated they are installing an invisible fence to keep the dogs from getting into the road.

A new gravel quarry is considered. Jack and Jaime Nolan and Doug Wagner discussed a proposal to zone a 40 acre parcel off of State Highway 180 to Q-1 Quarrying District. The conditional use is to stock pile, process and crush gravel and stone on two different hills that expand to 20 acres of the 40 acre parcel. The operational plan was read. They will need to request a meeting with the Town Zoning Variance Committee for approval. Adjoining property owners are required to be notified of variance meeting.

Shared expenses with the Town of Porterfield for Borderline Rd. has a contract for road maintenance that splits expenses 50/50, and both Towns have to agree on maintenance. Renikow questioned snowplowing as this is not considered maintenance and not part of the above mentioned contract. Per Jim Wortner the expenses are switched each year between the two Towns, and the Town of Wagner paid expenses for the last season. Clerk Brown discussed with the Clerk of Porterfield to clarify.

Future agenda items are Nolan family to set date for variance meeting regarding quarry, snowplowing expenses for Borderline Rd. and audit update.

Also discuss processing current and outstanding vouchers.

The next Board meeting is Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 6:30 PM.
