ROAD REPORT – weight limits will continue until May 17 in the Town of Hunter; the County limits are going off May 13. The 2006 Ford had the right axle replaced; the plows were put back on the trucks due to the May 2 snow fall; the annual road tour was cancelled twice due to snowy roads; town culverts are working properly. The County contacted the Clerk and requested that we leave the Treeland Road sign spelled with 2 E’s because mapping, USPS and the telephone company have it on their records with 2 E’s.
There were a number of people in attendance regarding ATV TRAVEL ON RIVER ROAD. They are requesting that the Town make ATV travel permanent so they do not have to come back every year to re-authorize our Ordinance No. 2012-01. Jim Dier said there have been no complaints or abuse so far. Don Mrotek assured the Board that they can revoke the Ordinance at any time Lee Wilmsen made a motion with a 2nd by Laura Rusk to remove the sentence in Ordinance No. 2012-01 that says the Ordinance will be effective for one year; motion carried.
Denny Aaron asked for ATV access from River Road to Forest Road 319. They need authorization from the Town of Hunter to use 319. The Board will check into it during the Road Tour. SPEED LIMITS can be reduced by 10 MPH without an engineering and traffic study. We must prepare a Resolution for any speed limit change and include the reason for the change. Therefore the speed limit on Flowage Road from County Road CC to Helsing Road will be reduced from 35 MPH to 25 MPH.
Lee Wilmsen made a motion to REMOVE THE WALL FAN IN THE CLERKS OFFICE; 2nd Laura Rusk; motion carried.
The Clerk reported that she is having problems with her COMPUTER. Lee Darviel has been working on her computer and said he might be able to upgrade it to Windows 7. The current operating system is Windows XP and that version will not be serviced by Microsoft by next year. The Clerk also said she is in need of a faster printer for the new software she is using.
A motion was made by Laura Rusk to change the AGENT FOR SISKO’S RESORT TO DAVID LEWANDOWSKI; 2nd Lee Wilmsen; motion carried.
Lee Wilmsen made a motion to APPROVE PAYMENT OF BILLS AND PAYROLL for checks #15119 to #15144 from 04/18/2013 to 05/08/2013 for a total expenditure of $12,733.51; 2nd Laura Rusk; motion carried.
