Chairman DeMet read the Agenda of the Special Town Board Meeting of February 17, 2016 and called the meeting to order.

Motion by Parker, seconded by Michalsen, to approve the Agenda of February 17, 2016. Motion carried, all Ayes. In regard to the truck and equipment bids that were opened on February 10th, Chairman DeMet indicated that the Town does not have to take the lowest bid, and that bidding is not actually required.

Chairman DeMet indicated that he would rely on the Road Crew as to what truck they felt would be the best for Lake Tomahawk. Greg Kuckkahn indicated that he talked to people in different cities, towns and counties and the general consensus was that Western Star was the best. There was then discussion between the board, Greg and the men from Truck Country about their vehicle.

Town of Lake Tomahawk Special Town Board Meeting, November 3, 2015

The Lake Tomahawk Town Board held a Special Town Board Meeting on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 4:00 PM in the Raymond F. Sloan Community Center.

Present: Chairman DeMet, Supervisors Catherine Parker and Matthew Michalsen, Clerk Nancy Schneider and Doug Rehm. Also in attendance was Charlie Quimette, Agent, from Wisconsin Benefit Planning, Inc.

DeMet called the meeting to order and the Agenda was read. Motion by Parker, seconded by DeMet to approve the Agenda of November 3, 2015. Motion carried, all ayes.

DeMet asked Charlie if he was aware of Greg’s situation having turned 65. Charlie said Greg could still stay on the plan with medicare. The group plan would be secondary. He doesn’t have to take a supplement, but could stay on the current plan with medicare but it would be more expensive. It would be better if Greg got a supplement with medicare. He could still have a reimbursement amount. Charlie went on to say that he markets the account every year and the prices that he gave us were the best price he received. Parker said that WPS was a non-ACA plan and the other quotes were ACA Plans. What if anything did this mean? Charlie said the ACA Plan is based strictly on age and not on gender or any other factors. Our current plan is getting closer to an ACA plan as our crew is getting older. Parker asked what the benefit would be if the town went to an ACA plan. Charlie said there would be no benefit for the town. A private firm could get a tax credit but the Town is not eligible for a tax credit. WPS is nation wide so the employee would not be out of network.

DeMet felt that the current plan for Scott and Doug is the best plan. Greg would still need a drug plan and he could get Senior Care for $35 a year. If the Town switched to Security Health Plan and continued to cover Greg the rates would be higher than WPS. The current plan will automatically renew December 1st. Parker made a motion that the decision on the insurance be tabled until after they talk to Greg. DeMet seconded the motion. Motion carried, all ayes. Michalsen made a motion to adjourn, seconded by
Parker. Motion carried, all ayes.

Town of Lake Tomahawk Special Town Board Meeting, April 15, 2015

Special Town Board Meeting
April 15, 2015 – 6:30 P.M.

The Special Town Board Meeting of April 15, 2015 was called to order by Chairman Richard Mazurczak at 6:33 P.M. in the Raymond F. Sloan Community Center.

All notices were posted according to the open meeting law and the media was notified.

Present: Chairman Richard Mazurczak, Supervisors Catherine Parker and George DeMet, and Deputy Clerk Patricia Christy.

Motion by DeMet, sec’d by Parker to approve the agenda of the Special Town Board Meeting of April 15, 2015, Motion carried all ayes.

Select bids for blacktopping North Bluebird Rd., Eagle Rd 1 & 2 and Hideout Lane – Rick Mazurczak suggested that we eliminate Eagle Rd. 1 & 2. The budget for blacktopping is $226,679.08 and we have awarded $45,392.00 for chip seal and $22,858.00 for crack-sealing which leaves a balance of $158,429.08. Rick Mazurczak suggested that we eliminate Eagle Road 1 & 2. He further stated that he reviewed all the numbers and that it would be cheaper to have the road crew do the graveling and that basically is because we lowered the gravel on North Bluebird and Hideout Lane to 3 inches instead of 6 inches. The bid from Musson was $119,310.19; Pitlik was $101,439.40 and American Asphalt was $96,630.78. DeMet said he had misgivings about American Asphalt after talking with our Road Superintendent and also with Hazelhurst. They were not satisfied with the preparation not with the blacktopping but especially the pulverizing and final grade. He also did not like that #4 of the bid was included with #5 especially since the other bids had separated as per out bid specs. He also questioned the 1 cent per foot when the other bids were a lot more. The Rep. from American Asphalt said that is because they have a machine that does it. Hazelhurst also said the curbing was inadequate. Motion by Mazurczak, sec’d by DeMet that these bid awards no matter where they go that we award the bid where the Town does the furnishing and hauling of the crushed aggregate base course, Motion carried all ayes. Motion by DeMet, sec’d by Parker that we drop Eagle Rd 1 & 2 from the blacktopping, Motion carried all ayes. When we get to Hideout Lane American Asphalt is $46,278.66: Pitlik is $47,960.53 and Musson is $56,498.60. Motion by Parker, sec’d by DeMet that we approve Pitlik’s bid for blacktopping North Bluebird Rd. and Hideout Lane, discussion followed the motion. Catherine felt the price difference for quality benefits the Town. George said experience says a lot and since we have not had experience with American Asphalt then we have to rely on others experience. Mazurczak called for a vote; DeMet aye, Parker aye, Mazurczak nay, Motion carried.

At 7:15 P.M. motion by DeMet, sec’d by Parker to adjourn, motion carried all ayes.

Town of Lake Tomahawk Special Town Board Meeting, March 16, 2015

Special Town Board Meeting – March 16, 2015 at 6:30 P.M.
The Special Town Board Meeting of March 16, 2015 was called to order by Chairman Richard Mazurczak at 6: 30 P. M. in the Raymond F. Sloan Community Center.
All notices were posted according to the open meeting law and the media was notified.
Present: Chairman Richard Mazurczak, Supervisors Catherine Parker and George DeMet, Deputy Clerk
Patricia Christy.

Motion by Parker, sec’d by DeMet to approve the agenda of the Special Town Board Meeting of March 16, 2015, Motion carried all ayes.

Set Road Projects to be completed in 2015 - The reason Mazurczak called this meeting is because the Town is always behind the calendar in bidding our road department projects and therefore we are not getting the projects done that we are taxing the people for, so he would like to get the process started sooner. He also invited candidates that are running for the April 7 election to attend this meeting and two of them were present which were Matt Michalsen and Stephanie Sowatzka. Through North Central Regional Planning Commission we had a plan done for our roads. They also drive the roads and rate the roads with a numbering system. This plan helps the Board and the Road Superintendent. This plan gave a rating for five years. The Road Superintendent gave us a list of roads for paving projects, crack sealing and chip sealing. Mazurczak stated that #1 we have to do something about the drainage problems on Lily St. and Rainbow Rd. That was the primary reason the Town purchased the 2 lots behind the Community building. We had an engineering firm come and give us some options on the drainage of the water. It was estimated that to fix this drainage problem would cost an estimated 30 to 50 thousand. Mazurczak said #2 we have the Starling Road turn around that we are going to have to do something about this. In the winter we have been maintaining this entire road and we have been pushing snow on private property. Currently our Attorney is trying to get the landowner to deed us some land for a turnaround. Before anything can be done with Starling Road we will have to wait for a legal determination. Residents on North and South Windpudding Roads asked about their road and when it will be fixed. They stated they did not mind the gravel road but felt that the road is not maintained properly. After much discussion regarding the various projects a motion was made by DeMet, sec’d by Parker to put out bids for crack sealing projects on the following roads: Camp 21Road .40 mile, Pike Road .83 mile, Alva Lake Road 053 mile, Beaver Lake Road from Pike to Cassian Town Line .30 mile, Fawn Lake Road from County D West to Big Buck Road 1.24 miles, total length of Finch Road .74 mile and Downing Dr. .15 mile, Motion carried all ayes. Motion by DeMet, sec’d by Parker to put out bids for single coat chip seal for Fox Road including the crack sealing on blacktop intersections, Pigeon Road the right fork, and Wolf Road, motion carried all ayes. Motion by DeMet, sec’d by Parker to get re-construction blacktop bids on Hideout Lane, North Bluebird Road and Eagle Road, motion carried all ayes. Motion by Parker, sec’d by DeMet to bid out for an engineering plan regarding the water drainage issues on Lily and Rainbow Road, Motion carried all ayes.

Motion by DeMet, sec’d by Mazurczak to advertise for bids to be opened on April 8, 2015, motion carried all ayes.

At 8:00 P.M. Motion by Parker, sec’d by DeMet to adjourn. Motion carried all ayes.
