Public Input:

  • A resident on Wheeler Road has issues with a neighbor intentionally tearing up his front ditch with an ATV.  Outagamie County Sherriff Deputy Chris Woods was present.  He addressed the issue with the resident and will try to help with a solution.


Outagamie County Sheriff Deputy Chris Woods was present.  He spoke about enforcement of the new noise ordinance that was passed in March, 2019.  Deputy Woods was given a copy of the ordinance.  His concern stems from a residence in Medina, where there have been a string of complaints for loud vehicles and music. 


Doug Wunderlich was sworn in as Sanitary District President.  Sanitary District President Jim Wight submitted a resignation letter.  His last day was March 19, 2019.  On February 19, 2019, Chairperson Wunderlich spoke to Sanitary District Secretary Chuck Zehner about having candidates to fill the vacant position at the March 11, 2019 Board Meeting.  No one from the Sanitary District was present, nor were there any candidates.  Supervisor Degal made a motion to appoint Doug Wunderlich to fill the remaining two years of Jim Wight’s six year term, seconded by Supervisor Laabs, motion carried.   Chairperson Wunderlich abstained. 


Supervisor Laabs made a motion to approve a bartender’s license for Maxem Brent, seconded by Supervisor Degal, motion carried.


An abatement order was given to a town resident by the constable.  The resident contested the order, so part of the process of the hearing is to appoint an abatement officer.  Chairperson Wunderlich made a motion to appoint Supervisor Laabs as the abatement officer, seconded by Supervisor Degal, motion carried.  Supervisor Laabs abstained. 


This year’s road project will consist of Midway Road from Cloverleaf Road to the northern town line.  It is a distance of 1.6 miles.  Because of cost, the bid was broken down into segments.  Base bid #1 with alternative A and alternative B.  Two bidders submitted bids, MCC and Northeast asphalt.  Northeast Asphalt’s bid came in approximately 25% lower than the engineer’s estimate.  Engineer Geurts recommendation was to award the project to Northeast Asphalt.  Chairperson Wunderlich made a motion to go with the base bid and alternate A for a total of $313,565.75 with Northeast Asphalt, seconded by Supervisor Laabs, motion carried.  The town was awarded a grant through Outagamie County for $76,000 that will be used for the project.  Outagamie County will do paver patching, so 500 tons of pavement patch was removed from the bid. 


Road’s Report:

  • Baler and Cloverleaf Roads need some paver patching.  Along with some areas on Cedar and Depot Roads.
  • Outagamie County will be giving an estimate to clean a ditch on Depot Road to try to prevent water on the road.
