Blooming Grove Town Board Meeting Minutes for January 11, 2017

 

Chair Johnson called the meeting to order at 6:30pm.  Other Town Board members in attendance were Supervisor Berg, Supervisor Bristol, Supervisor Linzmeier and Supervisor Young.  Also in attendance were Clerk/Treasurer/Administrator Mike Wolf, Public Works Supervisor Cory Buske, and Todd Violante and Hans Hilbert from Dane County Planning and Development.

The pledge of allegiance was recited.  Chair Johnson asked if the meeting notice had been properly posted, and Mike Wolf said it had been.

2a.  2016-17 Operator’s License for Amanda M. Olson:  Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the 2016-17 Operator’s License for Amanda M. Olson.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

2b.  Conditional Use Permit for fire station at 1880 S. Stoughton Road:  Supervisor Bristol reported that this came before the Plan Commission earlier this same evening.  Dane County will be purchasing the fire station tomorrow, and requires a Conditional Use Permit in order to use the building as they wish.  They intend on having government offices there, specifically for staff of the Dane County bookmobile.  The bookmobile itself, books and other items, and a Command Vehicle (emergency management) will also be stored in the facility.  It will not be open to the general public.  The Plan Commission unanimously recommended the Town Board approve the Conditional Use Permit.

Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the Conditional Use Permit (#DCPCUP-2016-02370) as presented.  Supervisor Young seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

2c.  Dane County Ordinance Amendment #67, 2016:  Todd Violante said this amendment will move the appeals of Conditional Use Permits from the 37-member Dane County Board, to the 5-member Board of Adjustments.  He said this should make the appeals process more effective and efficient.  Supervisor Bristol said this issue was discussed at the Plan Commission meeting earlier this evening, and the Dane County Town’s Association also supported the amendment.  The Plan Commission unanimously recommended the Town Board approve this amendment.

Supervisor Young made a motion to approve Dane County Ordinance Amendment #67, 2016, which changes the process of appealing decisions made for Conditional Use Permits, as presented.  Supervisor Bristol seconded the motion, and it passed 5-0.

2d.  Building a loft in the Public Works bay:  Cory Buske said the old Public Works building has been emptied to prepare for the sale tomorrow.  This has resulted in overcrowded bays in the Town Hall building.  He is recommending the Town have a loft built, which will allow for safer storage of Town equipment.

Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the building of a loft in the Public Works bay.  Supervisor Young seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

2e.  Request for donation from the Oregon Community Resource Network:  No action taken.

3a.  Approval of Minutes of the December 14, 2016 Town Board Meeting:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the December 14, 2016 Town Board meeting minutes as presented.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion, and it passed 5-0.

3b.  Approval of Minutes of the December 30, 2016 Town Board Meeting:  Chair Johnson  made a motion to approve the December 30, 2016 Town Board meeting minutes as presented.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion, and it passed 3-0.  Supervisors Bristol and Young abstained.

3c.  Approval of Vouchers:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the vouchers, including property tax refunds, as presented.  Supervisor Young seconded the motion, and it passed 5-0.

4.  Public Comment:  None.

5.  Adjournment:  Chair Johnson made a motion to adjourn the meeting, and it was seconded by Supervisor Young.  The motion passed 5-0 at 6:48pm.
