Home : Friday Memo






To:                  Town Board Members

From: John Olson, Town Administrator

Date:   April 17, 2014    



Please take time to read this week’s Friday Memo- -a general recap of the week and upcoming news.  As always, should you like more information, I ask that you call the office, e-mail or stop in.  Thanks for your continued support. 



  1. US Cellular has remained firm in their negotiation for their proposed tower lease.  Agreed terms are $1000/monthly + 20% for additional subleased providers (Verizon, Sprint etc.) + 3% annual inflation.  They declined the request for additional services for Emergency Services as well.  Due to changes in state legislation and Walworth County Zoning, there are now many more sites available for tower locations which hurt our negotiation for better terms.  US Cell is working on a draft lease to be legally reviewed and for your consideration at the May 20 Board Meeting at the earliest.    
  2. You will be convening into Closed Session at the end of next week’s Board Meeting to discuss Jim Wolfgram’s petition for additional WI Retirement Protective Service Credits for his years working as a Part-Time Police Officer.  I’ve invited Jim to also attend to give you the option of hearing his comments/questions for at least a part of the Closed Session.  Attorney Rich Scholze will be present as well.  You are encouraged to review the information distributed at the Special Board Meeting earlier this week to help prepare your questions for next Tuesday.   
  3. Working through the utilities on relocating their services before the old Del-Aqua apartments can be demolished.  It is not possible to burn the structure and you will need to publically bid the demolition work. 
  4. The next Finance Committee is scheduled for next Wednesday, April 23 at 4:00pm where the 2014 Budget will be reviewed and Police Contract negotiations will be considered.
  5. All Assessed Values for the Town are available online at accurateassessor.com. 
  6. The Highway Shop is a “free drop-off site” for Waste Oil that is used for heating purposes.  We are currently out.
  7. Town Hall is closed tomorrow due to Good Friday.
  8. Enjoy your weekend and have a Blessed Easter!
