Clerk Krueger questioned if the town’s recycling grant would be appropriate to utilize for the $1,800.00 charge from Superior Services and the P-C ads she would be placing.

MOTION: Handevidt/Hanson to approve one more leaf pick up by Superior Services at the cost of $1,800.00 and P-C ads to be paid out of the recycling grant fund account.  Motion carried unanimously.

b)        Town Attorney Greg Curtis

c)         Town Clerk Jeanne Krueger:   passed out a Post-Crescent article that stated Winnebago County Board passed an ordinance that more than doubled variances, C.U.P.s and rezoning fees.  She strongly felt the three county supervisors representing town of Menasha citizens and voted yes, (John Schaidler, Scott Tierney and Herb Kraemer) should have represented the community better.
