Town of Elcho Meeting Agenda

January 18, 2018, 7:15 PM

 Elcho Town Hall



1.  The meeting was called to order by Mr. Johnson at 7:15 with the cub scouts presenting the flag and leading us in the pledge of allegiance.  All elected town officials were present. 

2.  Marie Schuh reported that the Historical Society has 92 charter members.  Mr. Greg Mejak of Red Fox Run thanked the town for services stating that both road plowing and EMS response were excellent.

3.  Mr. Siemers made a motion to approve the meeting minutes from December 21, 2017, Mr. McKinney seconded and the motion carried. 

4.  Mr. Siemers made a motion to approve financial reports and pre-paid bills, Mr. McKinney seconded and the motion carried.

5.  Mr. Bob Brown reported for EMS that there were 95 calls in 2017, and that there had been 6 so far this year.  He stated that the monitors were in for repair. There were no reports from the Fire Dept. or the Pavilion Committee.

6.  Mr. David Schindler reported that the Elcho Food Pantry has a Master Gardener ­­­­­who will supervise the community garden.  They are getting information on the costs of fencing and other building materials.  Permission to take soil samples at the various proposed sites was given. 

7.  Mr. Schuh reported that the VA Service Officer’s outreach program in Elcho was a success and that it will be probably resume in March. He also reported that the highway department was experimenting with different salt solutions, that the purchase of the Robert Lyle Boy Scout Camp was now finalized and the County is the owner of that property.  We are on the agenda for the next Forestry Committee meeting to discuss the wayside on Otter Lake and a representative from Elcho would be going to the meeting.

Mr. Burby reported that there was an issue with arsenic in wells, and that mandatory testing of private wells may be coming.

8.  Regarding Health Insurance, joining a group of some kind, talking to employees about what they want, and coming up with some kind of modified payment plan were discussed, but no action was taken.  Clerk will continue to research possibilities.

9.  Ms. Siemers said the town needs a credit card.  She stated that it was needed for payroll purposes and to make small on-line purchases rather than having individuals make them with their personal credit cards and get reimbursed.  Mr. Siemers made a motion to have a credit card for the town with a credit limit of 2500 and with the treasurer having control of the card.  Mr. Johnson seconded and the motion carried.

10.              There was discussion regarding allowing Post Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District to use town owned land off of County Road U as a secondary weed harvesting disposal site.  There was no objection provided it was OK with DNR.

11.              Regarding dump permits, the present policies should continue.  To clarify, if there is more than one dwelling unit, additional permits should be issued at the beginning of the year so there is one for each unit.  People who own land with no dwelling unit may be issued a permit upon paying the special charge for dumping.  Lost permits may be replaced for a $25 fee.

12.              The trap club is responsible for pumping the holding tank at the club.  Mr. Johnson stated that he would inform them.

13.              Correspondence was reviewed, but no action was needed regarding any of it.

14.               Mr. Siemers made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Mr. McKinney.  Meeting adjourned at 8:15 pm.
