Town Pembine Discusses Legion Park Play Area

Issue Date: September 26, 2019

The regular Pembine Town Board meeting was called to order by Chairman Ross Bole at 6 pm on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Besides the chairman those present were Sup. Mike Newingham, Sup. Vincent Czahor, Clerk/Treasurer Sue Allen and two citizens. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Bole reported edges have been back on Holmes Junction Rd. and the pulverizer coming next week will pulverize Holmes Junction Rd along with Crowe Rd. The culvert on Faucett Rd. is replaced and check came for the culvert aid for Bishop Rd. for $8,978.42.

The town hall was used seven times in August and there were five new permits in August for razing, garages, and an out building.

Czahor asked if there was an estimate to add a special charge to property tax bills for garbage service for parcel with improvements over $10,000. It was noted the last estimate would be about $112 per parcel a year, which comes out to about $11 a month for garbage pick-up. Allen would need to hand code a parcel list with these charges. Bole stated this would include businesses and he is in favor of letting businesses opt in or out as most have dumpsters. He also stated land use permits will include a charge for garbage and will be going back to a 6 month permit. The Board approved imposing a special charge for garbage services on the property tax bills for all parcels with improvements over $10,000, with the option for businesses to opt in or out. There was a brief discussion regarding the bins for garbage and the frequency of garbage pick-up. Once everything is finalized, a flyer will be made up and distributed around Town.

In a continuation of the special meeting discussion regarding equipment purchases from the Aug. 26 meeting, Bole stated more money needs to be spent on roads in order for the three year average to come up enough for the Town to receive the full amount of Transportation Aide available. At the special meeting it was decided to go forward with a few road projects that are within the current budget but our budget will need to be increased this year via taking money from savings to meet spending. In order to do this a special electors meeting must approve taking money from savings to increase the budget. Allen was tasked with finding out if there is more than one debt service on the levy if can choose to purchase equipment to help meet spending goal. Allen said yes. Currently they are in need of a new brushing tractor and the Town Board would like to purchase a truck for the employees to use for running errands such as parts pickup and towing the lawn mower to the park, etc. There was a discussion regarding estimates for a tractor and truck purchase. If more more money is not spent this year, they will lose approximately $26,000 a year. The Board approved holding a special electors meeting to pull money from savings to increase budget. It was noted we will have the special elector meeting Oct. 8th at 6 pm with the regular Town Board meeting to follow.

Clerk Allen said she received a bid for the 2020 year from assessor Tennessen Appraisal. The terms and conditions are the same as last year, with the fee being $7,600. The Board approved the bid.

Jenafir Donovan submitted a variance application to have a park model on her parcel. Bole stated once it is a park model, it would fall under the land use and park models are regulated by the DMV. If this variance is approved Permit Administrator Bob Grandaw will have to get proof that this meets the definition of a park model. There was a discussion regarding what fits ordinances and what she would have to do in accordance with a land use permit. It was decided Grandaw would need to talk to her and let her know all the variables that go along with a park model. The Board approved the variance as long as she meets all criteria of a park model.

Bole stated it is getting close to time for snow removal. He noted the town has ordinances against pushing snow across roads, leaving snow in the roadways, and he stated it is the responsibility of the property owner to clear sidewalks that are adjacent to their property. Previously the loader was used to clear sidewalks and Bole is not in favor of putting the loader on the sidewalk and cracking it. There was a brief discussion regarding snow removal, with the Board deciding to table this for now.

Bole stated the town owns 38 acres by Lindquist Lake and Back Lake. Bole said Jim Ivako is willing to set it up for timber sales. It will cost us a little money to get it set up. A select cut could be done and anything mature would be taken out leaving Oaks behind. The Board would have to give him permission to go through and set up the timber sale. Ivako would charge per acre fees. There was a discussion regarding what to do with the money from the sales. It was later noted the per acre fee is $30. The Board approved giving him permission to mark the trees and set up the sales.

Ivako had gone over to Legion Park andhis advice was to tape off what is needed for a play area and take down anything in that area. Then go take down anything dead or with woodpecker holes in it, or any dangerous trees. After that go through and see what trees want to take down to let more light into the park. There was a discussion on whether any of the trees would be marketable. The Board approved Newingham should go to Legion Park and mark out the play area and speak with Mike Berg as to when he could start cutting and the cost.

Bole reported that a few letters had been sent out to property owners recently regarding yard nuisances. One letter was sent out by the Town to a property owner on Monson Lake Rd. which was stated this house has been sold and the current owner has to clean it up. Bole would like to set up a specific date to have it cleaned. The Board approved sending a letter to this owner setting a date of Sept. 30 to have the property cleaned up with the stipulation that the junk/debris cannot be taken to his other properties, it must be properly disposed of. Bole stated one other letter had been sent out but this was sent out from the deputy permit administrator and would be handled by him. It was noted that if there are multiple complaints the Town will send letters to the property owners. There was a discussion regarding some other properties in need of clean up.

The next regular town board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 6 pm at the town hall. Bills were audited and paid.
