Kathy Redmer asked about Tracy Suber and if we heard anything about the dog kennel license that was approved.  No one had heard anything since suggesting them to call county.

The cemetery off of county hwy A was discussed due to WTA being asked who is the responsible unit to care and maintain them.  We need to find out how and when about it was acquired by the township.  That will determine if there should be some sort of resolution out there at the Town of Milford to come to a conclusion.

Steve Duwe wanted to mention how he feels a good job was done on the culvert that was completed on West Road.

There is an individual that the members of the Board are going to talk to possibly appoint into the second supervisor role for the township.  There will be more to come.

Steve Kube talked about the snow plow that he would like to purchase for the township.  It is a 2012 Freightliner with a Detroit engine and was previously a Waukesha County Highway truck.  It is for sale for $79,000 and we can get a 2.5% interest rate for three years with the financial institution.  This truck is a tandem axel truck with an aluminum box, spreader, sand/salt hauling capabilities, and two wings.  Steve Kube motioned to approve the purchase and Tony Schadt seconded the motion and the motion passed.  Steve Kube also motioned on the full purchase price amount to be financed and Tony Schadt seconded the motion and the motion passed.  Tony Schadt then also made a motion that the purchase price not exceed $85,000 with financing and title fees, Steve Kube seconded the motion and the motion passed.

For Public Input, the following items were discussed:

Clem Mess brought up that the culvert on Navan Road is getting bad again when driving over it.  Steve Kube stated that is because we used cold patch and that type of patching does not stay put it tends to squeeze out the sides and cause a divot in the road when driving happens, especially when it is heavy farm machinery.  Steve also mentioned he will look into it and get it fixed.

Steve Kube mentioned that he received a call from Zirbel’s on West Road, their garbage was not picked up again.  Trisha Miller volunteered to contact the garbage collection company and inform them of this occurring again.

Kathy Redmer brought up the fact that we should not approve River’s Bend liquor license if they have not paid their personal property taxes yet.  All agreed, and Trisha Miller will contact the General Manager of River’s Bend and handle that before any paperwork gets sent out.

Kathy Redmer also brought up how she is getting calls on fire signs again.  Trisha Miller verified order is a large one and will be completed by the end of June.  Going forward it was asked if Kathy Redmer can take over fire sign orders after this one has been submitted.  Kathy agreed to completing this task.

Steve Kube stated that the county called him regarding the ATV/UTV ordinace signage.  He went with a cheaper option of 30”x 30” signs rather than 36” x 36” signs.

Trisha Miller asked for the Board to approve a new printer purchase.  The cost of a decent multi-function printer should be about $100-$200.  The printer that was passed down has officially been taking out of commission due to all the printing from absentee ballot information from 2020 elections.  Steve Kube motioned to approve a new multi function printer purchase within the range discussed and Tony Schadt seconded the motion.

The Jefferson County WTA Unit Meeting took place on 6/7/21 – no board members attended.  It was suggested someone contact WTA to see if we can get a paper copy of what was discussed and/or handed out.

Steve Kube and Tony Schadt both mentioned they are still watching for a plow truck to purchase.  It is a necessity to purchase one before the next plow season due to the condition of our current plow trucks.

The review of zoning documents were discussed for the Weihert Rezoning Request at W6815 Reamer Lane.  It was agreed upon to approve the Lot 1 and Lot 2 rezoning as requested, but the Lot 3 rezoning request was approved on the condition that will need to have a variance approval that meets township driveway standards at time of installation of driveway for the third lot.

Liquor License and Operators License requests were reviewed, Tony Schadt reminded that there was no posting in the Watertown Daily Times.  A special meeting date was made for June 22nd at 700pm to have time to issue the notice in the Watertown Daily Times and then evaluate for approval the liquor license requests for 2021-2022.

Fire/EMS Reports (1) and Operators licenses (0) were reviewed.  Steve Kube mentioned at the Watertown Rural Fire Department meeting he attended, that 16% of the bills are the Town of Milford Responsibilities when they purchase a new fire truck.  They are looking to purchase a new fire truck that is expected to cost between $380,000-$420,000 which would then cost the township between $60,000-$68,000.  It was mentioned about a reimbursement that the rural fire department receives if our truck goes out on other Watertown Fire Department calls as well.

Correspondence received and the listing of bills to be paid were reviewed.

The need for snow plow drivers was brought up, Jason Hoffman acknowledged that he has some contacts that may be a possibility to help. 

The topic was brought up about road signs due to citizens asking at the November election on the status of Manske Road and the potential of Faville Road.  The Board wants to remind citizens they need to come to the meetings and present their concerns at the meetings rather than bringing them up when they see members of the Board or other citizens that attend meetings outside of that environment.  By encouraging citizens to attend the Town Board meetings, they can bring these topics up in the Public Input agenda items and voice their concerns at that time.  Jason Hoffman will have county come look at the two areas and verify if signage is needed.

The Rural Insurance representative was in contact with Kathy Redmer -  they are willing to come out to the meeting or be contacted at anytime if we have any questions.
