Blooming Grove Town Board Meeting Minutes for October 11, 2017

 

Chair Johnson called the meeting to order at 6:30pm.  Other Town Board members in attendance were Supervisor Bristol, Supervisor Larson, and Supervisor Linzmeier.  Supervisor Young was excused.  Also in attendance were Clerk/Treasurer/Administrator Mike Wolf, Public Works Supervisor Cory Buske, and Deborah Sellers.

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

2a.  Town Road Projects in 2018:  Supervisor Larson made a motion to authorize the Town to submit a TRI application for the resurfacing of the Highway 51 frontage road that runs from Allis Avenue to Buckeye Road.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion and it passed 4-0.

Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the resurfacing of Millpond Road in 2018.  Supervisor Bristol seconded the motion, and it passed 4-0.

Discussion ensued about a third road project for 2018, specifically a project in the Gallagher Plat neighborhood.  Board members asked Cory Buske to get estimates on a project that would include Town roads east of N. Fair Oaks Avenue, and on a project that would include Furey Avenue to the west of N. Fair Oaks Avenue and roads that intersect with Furey Avenue one block to the north.  These estimates will be brought back to the Board at a future meeting.

Cory Buske reported that any project done in the Gallagher Plat neighborhood would be coordinated with the City of Madison, as they now own the underground infrastructure for water and sanitary sewer.  The Town wishes to minimize the chances of spending money to resurface a road, only to have the City then have to dig underneath it to repair or replace infrastructure.

2b.  2017-18 Operators Licenses:  Supervisor Linzmeier made a motion to approve the 2017-18 Operators Licenses for Schtara Ann Williams, Amber Nicole Orley, Taylor N. Gleason, and Elizabeth N. Harnack.  Supervisor Bristol seconded the motion and it passed 4-0.

2c.  Amending the 2017 Town Budget:  Chair Johnson made a motion to amend the 2017 budget by moving $5000 in cost savings from the Town Office expense account, and $10,000 of cost savings from the Emergency Services expense account, into the Legal expense account.  Supervisor Larson seconded the motion and it passed 4-0.

2d.  Amendment for Dane County Zoning Petition 11143:  Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the amendment for Dane County Zoning Petition 11143 (for the Van Daalwyk property) as presented.  Chair Johnson seconded the motion, and it passed 4-0.

2e.  Tourism Promotion Agreement:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the Tourism Promotion Agreement between the Town of Blooming Grove Tourism Commission, the Town of Blooming Grove, and the Greater Madison Convention and Visitors Bureau as presented.  Supervisor Bristol seconded the motion, and it passed 4-0.

2f.  Town Representation on the Northeast Community Court:  Supervisor Bristol made a motion to appoint Supervisor Larson to be the new Town representative on the Northeast Community Court.  Chair Johnson seconded the motion, and it passed 4-0.  Chair Johnson thanked Supervisor Linzmeier for her past 20+ years of service as the Town representative.

3a.  Approval of September 13, 2017 Meeting Minutes:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the minutes from the September 13, 2017 Town Board meeting as presented.  Supervisor Bristol seconded the motion, and it passed 2-0, with Supervisor Larson and Supervisor Linzmeier abstaining.

3b.  Approval of September 27, 2017 Meeting Minutes:  Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the minutes from the September 27, 2017 Town Board meeting as presented.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion, and it passed 4-0.

3c.  Approval of October 4, 2017 Meeting Minutes:  Chair Johnson made a motion to approve the minutes from the October 4, 2017 Town Board meeting as presented.  Supervisor Linzmeier seconded the motion, and it passed 4-0.

3d.  Approval of Vouchers:  Supervisor Bristol made a motion to approve the vouchers as presented.  Chair Johnson seconded the motion and it passed 4-0.

4.  Public Comment:  Deborah Sellers suggested the Town change the locks on the Quonset hut at 3325 Thurber Avenue.  Deborah also pointed out that the City of Madison is looking to build a new road just west of the Gallagher Plat neighborhood, and that this project should be coordinated with Town officials.  Lastly, Deborah would like to see a Gallagher Plat resident be considered for appointment to the Plan Commission.

5.  Adjournment:  Chair Johnson made a motion to adjourn the meeting, and it was seconded by Supervisor Bristol.  The motion passed 4-0 at 6:50pm.
