Town of Elcho Meeting Minutes

August 17 2017, 7:00 PM Elcho


1.    Meeting was called to order by Chairman Johnson at 7:00 pm.

2.    Chairman Johnson stated that any information needed for the town budget needed to be presented as soon as possible before opening up for public comments.   Suzie Rabideau commented that she was still working on getting information on the high water benchmark from the DNR.  It was noted that Post Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District has given their budget figures to the clerk.

3.    Motion Made to approve the meeting minutes from July 20, 2017 as amended was made by Ryan Siemers, Seconded by Gary Johnson.  Motion Carried.

4.    Motion made by Ryan Siemers to approve the financial reports and pre-paid bills, seconded by Gary Johnson. Motion carried.

5.  EMS was reported to be very busy.  There were no reports from the Fire Department or pavilion committee. Missy Siemers reported that she had reminded these groups that they need to get their budgets in as this information is needed for the town budget. 

6.    Ward 1 representative Dick Schuh gave a summary of a written report on county board meeting.  A copy of the report is available to be viewed in the town office.  Ward 2 representative was not present. 

7.    Chairman Johnson reported that the budget for road repairs has been mostly spent for the year because of spending on the Fitzgerald Dam Road project.  Ryan Siemers reported that Northwoods Lane still needs paving, but it cannot be done until utility work proposed for spring 2018 is finished. 

8.    Trout unlimited Wolf River chapter has granted $2000 toward the Fitzgerald Dam Road project.  All needed materials are now on site. The road will be closed and work begun in a matter of days.

9.    A motion was made by Ryan Siemers, seconded by Gary Johnson, to revise Fire Department ordinance to cover both FD and EMS.  Note that their financial reports need to be turned in to the Clerk and Treasurer within 7 days. Rewrite so language is clear and understandable. Motion Carried.

10. A motion was made by Ryan Siemers, seconded by Jeff McKinney that the policy regarding accounts payable is that department heads will stop in the office once weekly to review bills for their respective areas and ascertain that they are legitimate and should be paid.

It was noted that there are difficulties with the current accounting system, CIVIC.   It is a complex system that is suitable for large municipalities, but is much more than we need and very expensive.  It was noted that newer versions of Quickbooks have addressed the concerns that caused the town to go to CIVIC.  A motion was made by Ryan Siemers and seconded by Mr. Johnson to purchase Quickbooks now and to begin implementation so it will be in place and fully adopted by Jan. 1, 2018.  Motion carried.

11. There was no action needed on zoning.

12. Correspondence was a Department of Administration Local Government Report

13. A motion to adjourn was made by Ryan Siemers, seconded by Gary Johnson.  Motion carried.  The meeting was adjourned at 7:25 pm.
