II. PUBLIC DISCUSSION-NON-AGENDIZED UTILITY DISTRICT RELATED MATTERS

Ron Krueger, Town Resident, requested that the Town provide information to him regarding whether an ordinance exists prohibiting more than one occupant from sharing a sewer line. He stated that he was representing Island Harbor Condominium Association and he was referring to a residence at 2465 Stroebe Island Drive.

Steve Laabs, Wastewater Superintendent, responded that a lift station would be needed. The residence, which was originally a part of the condominium property, was split off and sold separately.

It was the consensus of the Town Board to have Attorney John Claypool research and provide a legal opinion regarding this issue.

Director Comm. Development George Dearborn stated that it should be in the plumbing code. It states that you can only have one sewer line per household.

III. DISCUSSION ITEMS

A. Highway Right-of-Way Acquisition - State Highway 114

Brad Werner, Town Engineer stated that an extra right-of-way would be needed to proceed with the Town's trail system. We should have this right-of-way before we bid the job in mid June. The project is expected to be completed before winter.

George Dearborn stated that 2 firms were hired to do the acquisition of right-of-way. How quickly we proceed will depend on Town Residents. The condemnation could take as long as 60 days.

Town Assessor Richard Eiberger is facilitating this issue.
