Quarterly discussion – Village Zoning Administrator – The Zoning Administrator reported on his activities. The Board instructed him to cite the owners of 411 Linwood if they do not meet the June 19 deadline established at the May board meeting. The Clerk had mailed the owners of 21 Hillcrest a letter regarding the grass on their property, and the Zoning Administrator offered to send a letter to them regarding the possible need for a building permit when the remediation work is completed. Budelier agreed to accompany the Zoning Administrator to speak with the owner of 40 Crestwood regarding the condition of her property. The Clerk reported that she had spoken with the owner of 517 Sunset about tree removal and lawn care.
Quarterly discussion – Village Building Inspector – The report was reviewed.
Discussion and possible action on direct legislation petition – Gloudemans explained that the three choices before the Board were: adopt the two-page resolution provided by Move to Amend, place the resolution on the November ballot, or take no action. No action would result in the shorter resolution wording found on the petitions being automatically placed on the November ballot. Baker moved to place the resolution wording found on the petitions on the November ballot. Seconded by Budelier. The Clerk commented that the Board might wish to seek the opinion of the Village attorney regarding the ballot wording and resolution. Gloudemans suggested that if municipalities used differing ballot language on advice of attorneys, that could cause problems for Move to Amend organizers. Budelier and Baker voted in favor of the motion; Gloudemans and Renfert opposed. Motion failed. Since Wis. Stats. 9.20(4) states that the “the village board shall, without alteration, either pass the ordinance or resolution within 30 days following the date of the clerk’s final certificate, or submit it to the electors”, the resolution as it appears on the petitions will appear on the November ballot if the Board takes no further action by July 8, 2014.
Discussion and possible action on Resolution 001.2014R regarding sanitary sewer 2013 Compliance Maintenance Annual Report – Budelier moved to approve the resolution. Seconded by Renfert. Carried with no negative votes.
Discussion and possible action on proposals for chip sealing streets – Baker moved to approve the proposal from Fahrner to chip seal Hazelwood (Sunset to Linwood) and Greenbriar (Ridgewood to Hillcrest) at a total cost of $10,539. Seconded by Renfert. Carried with no negative votes.
Street Update – Budelier agreed to contact Bob Daniels, and attend a DOT meeting on June 24 regarding the I-39 corridor (Highway 66 interchange).
Village Hall Update – The underground sprinkler system has once again been repaired.
June Bills – Budelier moved to approve the June bills. Seconded by Baker. Carried with no negative votes.
The next regular Board meeting will be convened on July 21, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. at the Village Hall.
There being no further business before the board, the meeting adjourned at 7:05 p.m.
