AUGUST 13, 2018




Chairperson Wunderlich called the meeting to order at 7:00p.m., with Supervisor Laabs, Supervisor Degal, Treasurer Sandy Noffke, Clerk Jenny DeZeeuw, Fire Chief and Building Inspector Jim Emmons and residents present.


No Outagamie County Officer was present.


After reviewing recommendations from Town Engineer Al Guerts, Supervisor Degal made a motion to deny a request to extend an existing culvert and fill in the ditch at W8936 Great Oaks Lane, seconded by Supervisor Laabs, motion carried.  Mr. Guerts did not see a safety concern with the ditch; no steep sections that would make mowing difficult.  Ditches provide snow storage in the winter.  Long culverts typically freeze up much quicker in the winter.  Aesthetic reasons to fill it did not outweigh the functional purpose for ditches in rural areas.


Chairperson Wunderlich spoke to Engineer Al Guerts and Attorney Forsgren about the possibility of billing the State of Wisconsin for damage done to School Road during road construction on Hwy 45 and State Road 96 and/or reimbursement for signs and barricades.  Both thought it was unlikely.  Proving the condition of the road prior to the construction would be difficult without having extensive pictures and video.


Outagamie County Emergency Management gave the Town 32 weather radios and offered more for purchase.  The deadline for purchase was prior to discussion.  Chairperson Wunderlich made a motion not to purchase additional weather radios at this time, seconded by Supervisor Laabs, motion carried.  The price of the radios was the same as could be purchased from local stores, so there is no advantage to purchasing a large quantity to have on hand.  It is recommended that all residents sign up for the Public Emergency Alert Notification System by visiting https://alerts5.athoc.com/SelfService/3949039/Register


Roads Report:

  • Paving is complete.  Back filling with dirt and seeding will be done soon.
  • Chairperson Wunderlich received a proposal from Outagamie County for snow plowing.  $158.99 is the hourly rate for a tri-axle truck with winter equipment and driver.  The hourly rate for a motor grader with winter maintenance equipment and manpower is $160.06.  The 2018 salt rate per ton is $66.90.  Chairperson Wunderlich made a motion to table until after following up with the Outagamie County Highway Commissioner to see if its’s possible to sign a snow plowing contract only, without including a maintenance agreement, seconded by Supervisor Laabs, motion carried. 
  • The Speed Limit Ordinance will be reviewed in September.


Kara Homan, director of the Outagamie County Development and Land Services Department spoke about the Outagamie County Comprehensive Plan.  The plan has not been updated in ten years.  They will be reviewing and updating the plan within the next year.  A Vision Meeting is scheduled for October 1st at 6:30p.m., at the Dale Municipal Building to discuss issues and ideas to include in the updates.  The question of what it entails for a town to become a village was asked.  Ms. Homan stated the town would need to adopt their own shoreland zoning, flood plain zoning and general zoning, which would require staffing for each department.    


Supervisor Laabs made a motion to approve Veteran’s perpetual care fund reimbursement for Dale Union Cemetery, Pine Grove Cemetery and South Medina Cemetery seconded by Supervisor Degal, motion carried.
