Effective April 10, 2012, and going until April 16, 2013, Laura Ulrich is the Treasurer for the Town of New Haven.
There was some discussion about switching the night the board meets for their regular monthly meeting but due to elections in May and June the board decided to table the decision and put it on the agenda for the June meeting.
Paul Danovsky gave a report from the Plan Commission regarding the Plan Commission’s recommendation about whether the Town of New Haven should adopt Dunn County Zoning or not. The Plan Commission voted 3 yes, 1 no, 1 abstained, to recommend to the Town Board that the Town does adopt Dunn County Zoning. The result of the Advisory Referendum on April 3, 2012, was 98 yes to adopt Dunn County Zoning and 88 no to not adopt Dunn County Zoning.
Paul said the Plan Commission has pretty much settled on the Town of Prairie Farm Non-Metallic Mining Licensing process as the one they like the best and that they are now looking at blasting and mining agreements. Hanson asked if the Plan Commission wanted the Town’s attorney to be at one of their meetings yet. Tim Sempf said that once they finalize what they are going to recommend to the board and the board accepts it, then they will have the attorney draft it in final form.
At this time Marv Prestrud recused himself from the board. Motion by Siniff, second by Hanson to approve Resolution 2012-01 Adopting Dunn County Zoning. Carried. Roger Hanson voted yes, Donald Siniff voted yes and Marv Prestrud recused himself. The clerk then read Resolution 2012-01 out loud to those who were in attendance.
A couple townspeople had questions for the board regarding what would happen when Dunn County completes its revision of the Zoning Ordinance later this year. Roger said he did not know the answer to their questions but would try to find out.
Prestrud came back on the board at this time.
The board discussed whether to rent a portable toilet for the ballpark this summer as there were no games scheduled. Motion by Hanson, second by Prestrud, to not rent a portable for the ball park in 2012. Carried.
Motion by Hanson, second by Siniff, to approve a driveway permit for Brian Pauley on 190th St.
The board briefly discussed the agreements for the Boyceville Fire and Boyceville Ambulance districts and decided not to make any changes. Townsperson Tony Beyrer had some questions about why the rescue services bill was separate from the fire bill on the invoice he received and why the fee was so high even though the Town paid annual dues. The Clerk said she would check into why the rescue services were itemized on his statement. She also told him that payment arrangements could be set up as he said his insurance company would not cover the whole cost. Tony asked Roger to bring up some of his questions at the next fire and ambulance meeting Roger attends.
The board approved the bills for payment.
The next board meeting is Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012, at 7:00 pm.
Motion to adjourn at 8:15 pm by Prestrud, second by Siniff. Carried.
