Town of Stephenson Accepts Solway Resignation

Issue Date: August 22, 2019

The Town of Stephenson met Wednesday evening for their regular board meeting. Longtime supervisor Kevin Solway announced his resignation.

After the pledge and the call to order minutes of the July 10 board meeting were approved with a correction made to the LGIP which was stated as 2.42% vs 2.85% while it should have read 2.42% vs.85%.

Treasurer Kempka gave the financial report following the approval of the minutes. Current balances are, Stephenson National Bank and general fund at $103,053.90, Stephenson National Bank MM Fund at $649,126.03, Stephenson National Bank 2% Fund #362 at 93,698.28, Nicolet Bank Tax Money Market at $73,546.74, F&M Bank Depreciation account at $1,074,072.95 and Bank Mutual Investment CD at $50,000.

The board moved to approve vouchers #48648 through #48694 along with payroll charges and EFT payments were approved.

A moment was taken by Clerk Fae Olson to mention that the 2020 wage bargaining request was recovered from Teamsters 662 and that the WTA has sent out a notice to stop Reverie the August magazine.

The board approved CSM 2019-5 for Leonard K. Orlando, Joan R Netzel and Jean M Edges for a lot located in section 3, T32N-R20E in the Town of Stephenson for egress and ingress to Highway 141.

After the approval the board reluctantly accepted Supervisor Kevin Solway's resignation. The board thanked Solway for his time and effort and all the work he did for the Town.

The board was interested the town that there were two very qualified people who were interested in Solways postion. Supervisor Lieuwen made a motion to appoint Andrew Rogers to fill the seat. The motion was seconded by Supervisor Jim Stradal. Rogers then took his seat upfront but was unable to vote on the days agenda until he was officially sworn in after the meeting.

Next on the agenda was discussion of the Local Government Investment Pool (LGIP). Supervisor Lieuwen informed those in attendance about the LGIP, stating that right now the town is paying 2.42% interest versus the .20% to .85% they are currently receiving. He suggested that the board needs to prove and file a resolution to have funds placed with the LGIP. The board moved to have all town funds, except the general fund to Local Government Investment Pool.

The board approved the CWPP resolution for 2019 followed by a short discussion about the flooding problem that has been occurring on South Parkway. The board said the problem will be investigated and the findings brought back to the committee meetings in September.

Supervisor Stadal informed the board of a firetruck that is for sale from another station and mentioned that it might be a good deal for the town which is in need of another truck. The truck in question is listed at $150,000 and will be on the market in May or June of 2020. The funds needed would come form the truck fund and the 2% account. The board decided to table the discussion until a formal contract could be written up stating that the truck in is working condition before any money is put down board the purchase.

Stradal took time to make a motion concerning fireworks shows in the town, saying that all show must list the start and end time of the display on the permit.

After the motion was approved the board moved to adjourn.
