Public Comment: no comments
Rezoning request NE SE section 3: Two options from Carl Jennrich: fill in strip 330’ from right of way, hwy. 47 to North Bluebird Road or rezone the 40 acres. DeMet recommended going with filling in the strip. Lilly Wisotzke spoke regarding the rezoning. Concern is the back lots as there is no parking, no road access and even the 66’ that would be included is cutting into someone’s else’s property. Bill and Lilly Wisotzke upset due to the fact they were not notified of this from the beginning of the discussion. Discussed the public hearing which is going to be held that all people in neighborhood are notified and they are notified far enough in advance to attend the meeting. Rosie Bean asked who owns the road; part belongs to Steve Forrest and also Liz Taylor, however, Wisotzke’s own part of it as well according to Lilly and Bill Wisotzke. There is some confusion as to who owns what. Lengthy discussion ensued, will be public hearing. George DeMet made a motion that an option to rezone the strip, not the whole forty acres, which is described as SE of the NE Sec 03 from the right of way of hwy. 47 and all property East of hwy 47 be forwarded to the county and they will set the time and place and take it from there. Motion seconded by Stephanie Sowatzka, motion carried, all ayes.
Proposal to install French drain behind Sloan Center: Pitlik and Wick submitted a proposal in the amount of $8,540.00 to fill the puddle in behind the community center in the alley. They would dig a trench 40’ long, 5’ wide, 12’ deep and put in 17 tons of rock and then put washed stone on top of the initial rock. Clarified as to where puddle is. Stephanie Sowatzka made a motion to accept the proposal, seconded by Larry Hoffman, motion carried, all ayes.
WTA Convention in Steven Point: inquired about attending the meeting in Stevens Point. If want to go, please contact the clerk.
Chamber of Commerce membership and Room Tax Commission: cost and benefits of remaining with the Chamber. DeMet stated we have a very competent Chamber here in Lake Tomahawk. Is it worth it when we pay $7,000 to Minocqua Area Chamber of Commerce? We have three options: stay the way it is, collect room tax and keep the money, or eliminate the room tax. Extra paperwork for the Treasurer if we quit the Chamber. Clerk to write a letter to the businesses that are currently paying room tax and see what their thoughts are regarding staying with the Chamber. DeMet made a motion for the clerk to send out a letter regarding room tax, seconded by Stephanie Sowatzka, motion carried, all ayes.
Future Agenda Items: short term rentals and what the county is mandating, mining ordinance. DeMet stated a person contacted him from the Town of Lynn and would like to come and talk at our Board Meeting in the near future regarding the mining issue.
