2k.  Magnuson Hotel Restaurant Permit:  Supervisor Young made a motion to approve the 2017-18 Restaurant Permit for Magnuson Hotel, 3510 Millpond Road.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

2l.  Large Pine Trees in the Cemetery:  Cory Buske reported that he had reached out to several tree cutting companies for bids to take these three trees down.  At least one company wouldn’t do it, given their proximity to the power lines there.  The best bid we received was the one presented to the Town Board, in the amount of $6500.  Cory said that this could come out of the operational budget, and that the work would be done when school wasn’t in session.

Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the $6500 bid from Capital City Tree Experts as presented.  Supervisor Berg seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

2m.  Ordinance for deposits to protect Town roads:  Cory Buske said that in some instances when houses are being built or remodeled, or when driveways are being done, contractors who work those jobs do damage to the Town’s roads.  Surrounding municipalities require permits and deposits with those permits, which gives the municipality leverage if the road is damaged.  Cory is recommending Blooming Grove do the same.

Supervisor Young made a motion to have Mike Wolf and Cory Buske being work on a proposed ordinance to require deposits for house construction and driveway permits.  Chair Johnson seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

3a.  Approval of Minutes of the April 26, 2017 Town Board Meeting:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the April 26, 2017 Town Board meeting minutes as presented.  Supervisor Young seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

3b.  Approval of Vouchers:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the vouchers as presented.  Supervisor Berg seconded the motion and it passed 5-0.

4.  Public Comment:  Supervisor Young and Chair Johnson thanked the Town’s staff, and Town volunteers, for their contribution to a successful Clean Sweep last Saturday in April Hill.  Mike Wolf said the Clean Sweep will likely be an agenda item at the next Town Board meeting, so that Cory Buske can provide a recap and the Board has the opportunity to make changes so as to improve the event in future years.

Supervisor Young distributed an article that Deborah Sellers gave him, which was in reference to the City’s Darbo-Worthington Neighborhood Plan.  He said the plan is under final review at a meeting that is taking place tonight, and that the City will likely adopt the plan within the next month.

Supervisor Young said he went to a meeting last week that dealt with the proposed new fire station in the City of Madison at the corner of Dairy Drive and Femrite Drive.  It was reported that this station would be operational January 1, 2019.

5.  Adjournment:  Chair Johnson made a motion to adjourn the meeting, and it was seconded by Supervisor Bristol.  The motion passed 5-0 at 6:50pm.
