6. Mr. David Schindler reported that the Elcho Food Pantry has a Master Gardener ¬¬¬¬¬who will supervise the community garden.  They are getting information on the costs of fencing and other building materials.  Permission to take soil samples at the various proposed sites was given.  

7. Mr. Schuh reported that the VA Service Officer’s outreach program in Elcho was a success and that it will be probably resume in March. He also reported that the highway department was experimenting with different salt solutions, that the purchase of the Robert Lyle Boy Scout Camp was now finalized and the County is the owner of that property.  We are on the agenda for the next Forestry Committee meeting to discuss the wayside on Otter Lake and a representative from Elcho would be going to the meeting.

Mr. Burby reported that there was an issue with arsenic in wells, and that mandatory testing of private wells may be coming.

8. Regarding Health Insurance, joining a group of some kind, talking to employees about what they want, and coming up with some kind of modified payment plan were discussed, but no action was taken.  Clerk will continue to research possibilities. 

9. Ms. Siemers said the town needs a credit card.  She stated that it was needed for payroll purposes and to make small on-line purchases rather than having individuals make them with their personal credit cards and get reimbursed.  Mr. Siemers made a motion to have a credit card for the town with a credit limit of 2500 and with the treasurer having control of the card.  Mr. Johnson seconded and the motion carried.

10. There was discussion regarding allowing Post Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District to use town owned land off of County Road U as a secondary weed harvesting disposal site.  There was no objection provided it was OK with DNR.

11. Regarding dump permits, the present policies should continue.  To clarify, if there is more than one dwelling unit, additional permits should be issued at the beginning of the year so there is one for each unit.  People who own land with no dwelling unit may be issued a permit upon paying the special charge for dumping.  Lost permits may be replaced for a $25 fee.
