FIRE DEPARTMENT REPORT:  Hancock is considering purchasing a heavy rescue vehicle from Canada.

LAKE DISTRICT UPDATE:  Fish Lake – Chanel is OK but it is difficult to get an accurate depth measurement.

ROADS – BRUSHING, MOWING:  According to George Nigh, the trees and brush that aren’t totally dead yet may still die.  Will keep watch and treat again no later than September.  Hidden driveway sign. No fire number if no structure is on the parcel.  If the Town would pay for the fire number would zoning assign a number?  Marv Vriezen mentioned the stop sign at Beechnut & 12th is very difficult to see – maybe a “stop ahead” sign is needed?  Dan Novak approached Supervisor Meyer regarding brushing.  He has equipment with an arm.  Have him get as much as he can then take a road ride to decide if more is needed.

FOX VALLEY – REPORT:  Fox Valley’s new facility; would be a good idea for board members to attend the open house.

LIBRARY – UPDATE:  Total $ amount needed for Hancock Library: $27,415.00.  Deerfield share is currently 11% to amount to $3,015.65.  A 2% - 3% increase each year was included in the original contract.  Duane Pliner suggested possibly paying per percent of circulation using the most current data.  Library representative Michelle Bacon reminded the board that this amount is only a suggestion from the library board.  The Town Board can make its own decision.

TOWN OF DEERFIELD

REGULAR MEETING
JULY 10, 2018
DEERFIELD TOWN HALL
W10760 COUNTY ROAD C
HANCOCK, WI  54943


Meeting called to order at 7:00 p.m.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to accept the agenda as prepared.  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to accept the minutes from the June Regular Meeting as presented.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to accept the Treasurer’s Financial Report and pay all bills.

Wally Zuehlke is running for Sheriff on August 14th and he was present to explain his mission and what he hopes to accomplish if elected.  He hopes to resurrect Neighborhood watches, boat patrol and snowmobile patrol.  Also to create greater drug awareness by education. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT REPORT:  Hancock, lots happening.  Latest idea is to put a pressure washer on a truck to fight vehicle fires.  Supervisor Stratton is concerned the Fire Board isn’t solving problems.  Something must be done soon.

NICOLE CARLTON-BRUSH SPRAYING:  Why did the township choose to spray vs. trim brush?  She feels  this isn’t good earth stewardship.  The main reason is economics.  A man, truck and equipment would cost over $3000 to trim brush.  The spraying of nuisance brush/weeds was accomplished for a little over $2000.  George Nigh, Waushara Co. Hwy. Dept., was present and explained that this was the most economical and safe method of controlling brush and weeds.  He also assured all that asparagus and blackberries, etc. would not be harmed.

FLAGPOLE:  Thanks to Chairman Whalley and Supervisor Stratton, the flagpole has been repaired.

TOWN YARD WORK:  A day needs to be scheduled to clean up bushes, poison ivy, etc.

BUG TUSSEL:  Paul Kaster & Bill Hendee emailed Cheryl a sample resolution supporting the construction of a tower in the Mill Pond area of the township. Bug Tussel also asked the Township for a $100 donation showing support of such tower.  The board concluded that the area of placement is a beginning for better cell coverage in the Township but it will not serve the entire Township.  Also, more facts and information is needed before financial support will be granted.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to support the resolution for their grant but no monetary support at this time.

TOWN HALL CLEANING:  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to hire Danielle Meyer to clean the Town Hall.

CLERK’S REPORT:  Cheryl received an email today (7/10) from the Wisconsin Towns Association requesting  all Towns pass a resolution asking the Legislature and Governor to fix the transportation delima.  This will be taken up at the August meeting.

TREASURER’S REMARKS:  Rina reminded everyone about the Sales Tax Holiday approaching in August.  A list of qualifying items can be found on the Dept. of Revenue website.

ROAD REPORT:  Clark Blader stated mowing went well.  A few crooked stop signs.  When doing the fall mowing, please mow the NW corner of Woodville Cemetery.

Jerry Lauer, Waushara ATV Assoc, was present just to see how things are going on the open routes.  Not many complaints so far. He stated there are 30-40 actual members in the club with about 20 being very active members.  Chairman Whalley made a comment on the signage – some signs were hard to see due to tall grass.

Meeting adjourned at 8:08 p.m.

ELECTION RESULTS - CONCERNS: Cheryl reported that  out of 429 registered voters, 145 people voted in the April 3rd Spring Election.  There were 4 new registered voters.  5 voted by absentee ballot and 140 in person.  Also looking for additional people to add to the election officials list.

CLEEN SWEEP – DISCUSSION:  If both Waupaca County and Waushara County continue to co-host then it should actually be held in Waushara County at least every other year.  Manawa is too far to haul stuff.


FISH LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT – REPORT:  Town of Hancock will contribute $500 toward Boat Patrol and the Village of Hancock has also budgeted money toward Boat Patrol.  No special meeting will be needed to vote on spending money to treat Milfoil.  It must be treated/removed early in spring before other aquatic plants come out of dormancy.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT:  Reminder to change the May meeting to the 15th.  Thanks to Marv Vriezen for the Farm Progress DVD gift to the Town.  Marv wanted to relay to the board what Joyce’s intentions were in making the video.  In future copies of this DVD there will be an introduction.  Possibly the Hancock Library should have a copy.

CLERK’S REPORT:  Annual Schedule C report went well this year.  
 
ROAD REPORT NOTES:  Regarding the driveway on 11th – Hidden Driveway signs are needed.  Many driveways are located on that curve.  Road ride is scheduled for Wednesday, April 25 at 3:00 p.m.  Must make note of any brushing that will be needed.  Plowing & sanding costs – no itemized costs with this last billing as promised.  The board will hold the check until a more itemized accounting breakdown is received.  The board also revisited the snowplowing contract to refresh their memories.

ZONING:  Copies of cutting notices.  Ed Zdroik was supposed to be in attendance at this meeting.  Zoning would like to send another letter regarding the trailers that are too close to the right-of-way.  County zoning is 63 ft. from the center of the road.

Supervisor Meyer had a suggestion/idea regarding the handicap ramp. Make a new ramp on the East side of the building and use the front door.  The board really liked this idea but further research is needed.

Meeting adjourned at 7:45 p.m.
