 Town of Elcho Meeting Minutes

September 21, 7:00 PM Elcho


1.    The meeting was called to order at 7pm by Chairman Johnson.  The Chairman, Supervisor Jeff McKinney, Supervisor Ryan Siemers, Treasurer Melissa Siemers and Clerk Kathleen Kelly were present.

2.    Public comment was about roads, with comments about plowing and about a rumor that the town is going to let some roads go back to gravel.  Chairman Johnson stated that the rumor is just a rumor, that some roads are waiting to be paved and that this is a temporary condition.  He noted that if the roadbed is left to settle before being paved, the pavement should be better and longer lasting.  Mr. Johnson referred plowing questions to Mr. Siemers while noting that we have 78 miles of roads and only 2 plow trucks.

3.    It was noted that the budget request mentioned in the minutes was not from PLIA, but rather the Post Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District.  Mr. Siemers moved, seconded by Mr. Johnson to approve the minutes of the August 17, 2017 meeting with that correction.  Motion carried.

4.    Mr. Siemers moved that the financial reports and pre-paid bills be approved as presented, seconded by Mr. McKinney.  Motion carried.

5.    It was noted that a quorum of the board will be present at the next EMS meeting.  The Fire Department is having a gun raffle fund raiser in November.  There was no pavilion report as the brat barn season is over.

6.    Ward 2 representative Richard Burby was present and stated that there was nothing of substance to report regarding the county board meeting.

7.    Road repairs and other road issues were discussed during the public comment portion of the meeting.  ( See item 2 above)

8.    The Fitzgerald Dam Road Project is completed as planned.  Guard rails will be added by the end of September.  Mr. McKinney stated that additional funds for this project are being made available from both county and state levels.

9.    Mr. Johnson read an ordinance regarding handling of fund raising proceeds by the Fire Department and EMS.  Mr. Siemers made a motion, seconded by Mr. McKinney to adopt the ordinance as read.  The motion carried.

10.  Direct deposit of pay for all town employees was discussed.  Mr. Siemers made a motion, Mr. McKinney seconded to require all employees have a bank account in which to have their pay deposited, and that the employee handbook be revised to reflect this change, beginning January 1, 2018.

11.   Mr. Johnson noted that of four applications submitted two were withdrawn due to not enough pay and/or benefits.  The position will be offered to Charlie Robinson.

12.   One petition for grant of variance was received with the request being a lesser side yard setback due to a 50' lot width.  It was noted by Mr. Johnson, that this is done at the county level and that the township does not make this decision.  Motion made by Mr. McKinney, seconded by Mr. Siemers not to object. Motion carried.

13.  There was no Correspondence.

14.  Motion to adjourn was made by Mr. Siemers, seconded by Mr. Johnson.  Motion carried.  Meeting was adjourned at 7:35 pm.
