ZONING:  Todd Wahler, Zoning Director, was present to introduce himself and report on issues currently being discussed such as the Property Bills act.  He also stated that his office has an open-door policy and they strive to be user-friendly.

SPEED CONTROL – MARLWOOD SUBDIVISION:  Guest Marv Vriezen recently spoke with new residents who have small children.  Was wondering if “children playing” signs could be put up or lower speed signs.  The board will speak with more Marlwood residents to get their input and make a decision next month.  All were reminded that the town can legally lower the speed limit to only 45 mph before studies need to be done.

BOARD OF REVIEW POLICIES:  Sara Stelter & Nancy Miller have agreed to be substitutes, if needed, for Board of Review.  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to adopt Ordinance 2018-1, Relating to the confidentiality of information about income and expenses requested by the assessor in property assessment matters; and 2018-2, Policy on Procedure for Waiver of Board of Review Hearing Requests.

TOWN OF DEERFIELD
REGULAR MEETING
FEBRUARY 13, 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 January Regular Meeting as presented.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to accept the Treasurer’s Report and pay all bills after a short reminder that PILT payment was for DNR owned land in the township.

BRUSH CONTROL – George Nigh:  State Hwy. Patrol Supervisor for Waushara County, George Nigh, spoke to the board regarding spraying brush to control overgrowth.  The county has their own system and will hire out to other municipalities for approximately $300/mile including man hours plus chemicals.  Oak brush is the toughest to kill.  Using Opensight and Escort combination will kill all nuisance weeds and brush but will not kill grass.  There is virtually no drifting due to the spray being a heavy water-based solution.  1 person will do all spraying to keep consistency.  The board decided to have the county add the Township to the list for early-on spraying.

LAKE DISTRICT – Fish Lake:  The last meeting consisted of getting materials prepared for the May meeting.  Possibly asking for more money per person for Lake District Fees.

DISTRICT MEETING – Report:  The booklet all received seemed to be the most important item.  It contains scripts, sample notices, new rulings, etc. for Board of Review.  Chairman Whalley spoke with Jann Charette, presenter of the board of review training, and found out more than one municipality can share the large publishing of Board of Review that can cost quite a bit of money.

TAX COLLECTION – Report:  Second tax collection went very well.

OPEN BOOK & BOARD OF REVIEW – date for 2018:  Cheryl hasn’t heard from the assessor yet.  The board is looking at the late May-early June time frame.  Cheryl will convey this to the assessor.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT:  Backing up computers.  Cheryl will contact Waushara PC to get this taken care of.

CLERK’S REPORT:  Will be ready for election on February 20th.

TREASURER’S REMARKS:  CD’s were taken care of.

ROAD REPORT NOTES:  A few equipment problems with the last snowfall.  Are the roads being plowed too often?  Sanding is better.
Resident, Richard Templin, is asking for a ‘hidden driveway’ sign.  Will decide on spring road ride.

TOWN OF DEERFIELD
REGULAR MEETING
AUGUST 14, 2018
DEERFIELD TOWN HALL
W10760 COUNTY ROAD C
HANCOCK, WI 54943


Meeting called to order at 7:00 p.m.  Add Land Use as item “F” to the agenda.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to accept the agenda with one additional item.  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to accept the minutes from the July Regular Meeting as presented.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to accept the Treasurer’s Report and pay all bills including an extra $13,250 to the Hancock Fire District for the Town’s share to purchase a dry heavy rescue vehicle.  Cheryl will add $60 to Nancy Miller’s election time and $30 to Sara Stelter’s election time for Board of Review.

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.

LAND USE:  Duane Pliner has replaced Ed Stelmachowski on the land use committee.  He attended the meeting on July 28th.  10 townships were represented.  A few new projects to take note of were:  Plainfield and I-39 development; Christiano’s new restaurnant.  Same board elected.  Next meeting will be July 2019.

CLERK’S REPORT:  Election today.  Consistantly busy but this Partisan Primary is tricky with some trying to cross party write in candidates.

TREASURER’S REMARKS:  Figured out how to generate a receipt from Quicken.

ZONING:  Copies of building permits.

Meeting adjourned at 7:41 p.m.

TOWN OF DEERFIELD
REGULAR MEETING
NOVEMBER 14, 2017
DEERFIELD TOWN HALL
W10760 COUNTY ROAD C
HANCOCK, WI 54943

Meeting called to order at 7:00 p.m.  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to approve the agenda as prepared.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to approve both the Budget Meeting and Regular Meeting in October.  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to approve the financial report and pay all bills including 3 additions.

Hancock Library representative, Jim Miller, was present to report on the library situation.  Thanked the board for always supporting the library.  Reported that the county board did not support an overall 2% increase for all libraries. The county helps to support each library based on its circulation.  The Hancock library is the only library in the State of Wisconsin to have an agreement with 3 municipalities for support.  If the town could spare a few more dollars ($60) it would be very much appreciated.

Baldder Boat – Wave Concern:  These boats create waves that could be a concern down the road by causing shoreline erosion due to the waves they create.  May have to put something in the ordinances in the future.

Fish Lake Management District – Report:  Narrows have been dug out.  There will be a one-time $60 charge per landowner placed on the taxes this year.  Will put up No Wake signs.

Mowing and Brushing: Clark Blader reported all went well but found a few rocks.  2 passes in the summer might be needed to make the fall mowing easier.  Used a bat-wing mower which helped with the other passes. 

Cemetery Progress:  Stone straightening is happening at Woodville.

Clerk’s Report:  Will check with the Hwy. Dept. on billing for TRIP project gravel.  Waiting to receive reports from state and county to figure mill rates.

Treasurer’s Remarks:  After checking, the consensus is to just get a bond and be safe.  The bond must be issued for the amount of the state and local levy amount ($662,576.53).  After checking with The Horton Group they quoted a cost of $131 for the bond.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to have The Horton Group issue the Treasurer’s Bond for the cost of $131.00.  Tax collection dates:  December 30, 2017 from 10 – 2 and January 27, 2018 from 2 – 5.  Handle-Stillman will print letters and stuff and mail taxes.  Donica will help out once again.

Zoning: Letters

Supervisor Meyer reported on the Hancock Fire Department Response Truck.  It has oil in the radiator, and many other problems including the need for new tires.  Repair it?  Where to go – Portage? Or Scaffidi in Stevens Point?  Replace it?  John Nixon would get quote together.

Meeting adjourned at 7:53 p.m.

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.

REGULAR MEETING
APRIL 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 approve the agenda as prepared.  Motion (Stratton, Meyer) to accept the minutes from the March Regular Meeting as presented.  Motion (Meyer, Stratton) to accept the Treasurer’s Report and pay all bills.


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.

Currently the Town has a setback of 75 ft. from the road rite-of-way .  Ed Zdroik doesn’t want to move the trailers.  It should be done before camping season starts.  It appears wires have been run to the campers.
