ROAD REPORT – the PASER road rating continues; inspection of driveways for plowing has started; winter plow drivers will be Gary Harris, Carl Stone, Mike Payne and Hank Narus; insulation has been put in the town hall ceiling area; the boat landing on Access Road has been repaired.
The Board discussed putting up PARKING AND TOWAWAY SIGNS AT THE ACCESS ROAD BOAT LANDINIG to keep people from parking right at the boat landing. Brion Nilles was present and asked why there had to be parking on Fletcher Road, which is right next to his house. The Board decided to visit the site and decide what signs should or should not be put up.
2011 Wisconsin Act 35 made the CONCEALED CARRYING OF WEAPONS legal in Wisconsin. The August WTA Report addressed this issue and stated that Town or Villages can ban the open or concealed carrying of weapons into municipal buildings or special events by using signs. It further stated that the town would not be liable for the mere act of allowing weapons into our building. The Board discussed this issue and decided not to put up signs.

Whitetail Industries sent a proposal to REMOVE THE CHIMNEY ON THE TOWN HALL ROOF.
