Our newly elected Supervisor for our area Patti Anderson was in attendance to update us on her un-official election into that position. She gave her landline to us for anyone to call anytime that is  234-2963.
Meeting minutes from March were read by clerk and accepted as read.
Report on roads- Road bands will stay on for now- the roads are very soft. Steve and Clint have not yet completed the spring road inspection.
Treasurer’s Report- Kathy - Money Market Savings and checking account balances reviewed and March bills were reviewed as paid. Steve made a motion to accept the corrected report was seconded by Dave- no further discussion motion carried.
Old Business- discussion continued about potential levy increase in the future to keep up with expenses- reviewed talking points for the annual meeting. Paul had the copy of a letter that Vilas County wrote to the legislature requesting an increase in the base levy so that cities, towns and villages can get ahead of wage increases to retain staff and pay for the basic services that are needed to be provided to communities. Other counties are having the same thoughts about levy increases being a necessity this year due to unprecedented inflation.
BPI FY 2022 funding- requires an engineer which significantly increases the cost for road projects.
BOR 2022 Training- both Paul Toft and Kathy Willger completed the BOR training for this year. The clerk will submit the required affidavit of training for both of them. BOR is scheduled for 4-28-2022 from 6-8pm.
Selling CASE IH Tractor- Steve took pictures of the CASE IH tractor that the Town is interested in selling. Oak Grove submitted a bid for their John Deere tractor. The clerk will list the tractor on Facebook Marketplace and several other sites that were recommended by the board in addition to the Wild River Paper.
Steve made a motion to approve 2 checks be re-issued for overpayment of taxes from the prior year that were never cashed. Dave seconded this- all in favor the motion carried.
New Business- Wisconsin Towns Association annual membership dues are almost due to be paid. Instead of holding on until the May meeting Steve recommended that we go ahead and pay the dues right away as this is an annual expense.
Payment of bills.
Next Meeting May 11, 2022 at 7 pm.
