Blooming Grove Town Board Meeting Minutes for July 26, 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, Liz Johnson and Deborah Sellers.
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. Operator’s License: Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the 2017-18 Operator’s License for Mark Ruckauf. Supervisor Young seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.
2b. Stormwater Management on Kuehling Drive: Cory Buske explained that this road doesn’t have the proper slope, and as a result stormwater ends up in people’s properties. The contractor doing the road project conservatively estimated a cost of up to $12,000 to properly slope the road so as to mitigate this problem.
Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve up to $12,000 for additional road work on Kuehling Drive so as to mitigate the stormwater management issues on this road. Supervisor Young seconded the motion and it passed 4-0, with Chair Johnson abstaining.
3a. Approval of Minutes of the July 12, 2017 Town Board Meeting: Supervisor Linzmeier made a motion to approve the July 12, 2017 Town Board meeting minutes as amended by Supervisor Young – who asked that the minutes reflect the fact that the McFarland School District is bussing April Hill residents to school because they deem the crossing of Siggelkow Road to be dangerous. Supervisor Young seconded the motion, and it passed 5-0.
3b. Approval of Vouchers: Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the vouchers as presented. Supervisor Young seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.
4. Public Comment: Deborah Sellers said things occasionally happen in her neighborhood without her or the Town being informed… such as her seeing a pickup truck with a large wheel of wire on Furey Avenue. She would prefer to have the Town be informed of these occurrences, so that she can more easily find out what’s going on.
5. Adjournment: Chair Johnson made a motion to adjourn the meeting, and it was seconded by Supervisor Young. The motion passed 5-0 at 6:38pm.
