Annual Town Meeting
Town of New Haven
April 10, 2012
The Annual Town Meeting of the Town of New Haven was called to order by Chairman, Roger Hanson, at the New Haven Town Hall at 7:05 pm on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.
Hanson led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Roll Call showed Hanson, Prestrud, Siniff, Wold and Duerst present. Townspeople were also in attendance.
The Clerk read the minutes for the 2011 Annual Town Meeting. Motion by Tim Sempf, second by Brian Loida, to accept those minutes as read.
The board and townspeople reviewed the 2011 Financial Statement. Brian Loida asked if the General Transportation Aid and Shared Revenue that the Town receives from the State of Wisconsin would be reduced in 2012. The Clerk said that the General Transportation Aid would remain the same but the Shared Revenue was being decreased from $61,302.97 in 2011 to $59,076.00 in 2012. The Clerk said the difference will be mostly made up by the employee’s share (referring to Alvin Stoveren) that was now being paid into the Wisconsin Retirement System instead of the Town paying for the whole contribution as in the past. Motion by Paul Danovsky, second by Tracie Wold, to accept the 2011 Financial Statement. Carried.
Bruce Brantner, Emergency Management Coordinator, introduced himself and Melissa Gilgenbach, Emergency Management Director. Bruce shared with the townspeople that the Town of New Haven would be receiving reimbursement from the Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM) program in the amount of $9,058 to cover 70% of the Town’s costs for the storm damage that occurred in August of 2010. Mr. Brantner said that even though the Town did not qualify for reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the application was then submitted to the WEM program, and did result in the 70% reimbursement for the Town. Mr. Brantner thanked the Town Clerk for her work and recordkeeping in the process as it played an important role in the Town receiving the reimbursement.
The Chairman asked why the Annual Town Meeting was being changed to the third Tuesday of April instead of the second Tuesday beginning in April of 2013. The Clerk said that due to recent changes in the election laws which allow for outstanding absentee and provisional ballots to be collected until 4:00 pm on the Friday after elections, at which time a Municipal Board of Canvas must be held by 9:00 am on the following Monday morning if any outstanding ballots are received, which would then result in the municipal election not being certified by the second Tuesday in April, due to the three day period for a recount request, that the Annual Town Meeting was being moved to the third Tuesday in April effective in April of 2013.
The next Annual Town Meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2013.
Motion to adjourn at 7:20 pm by Alvin Stoveren, second by Alvin Loida. Carried.
