Special Town Board Meeting-Monday, March 14, 2016-6:00 pm – Conference Room

Chairman Weiss called the meeting to order at 6:00 pm in the Conference Room. Present at roll call were Chairman Weiss. Supervisors Rasch, White, Palmer, Clerk/Treasurer Polyock. Supervisor Jones was absent. Also present were Dean Peters (Associated Appraisal Consultants), Julie VonBergen, Darrel Rose, Captain James Bushey.

Dean Peters presented the background for parcel ILGT -1K3. The assessors re-valued the entire subdivision last year. They looked at this parcel as the land value it had to the home it is with and not as an unbuildable lot. The notice was mailed to the address the County had provided. The County had failed to update the address as had been submitted a few months prior. Associated had fulfilled the requirement needed, but VonBergen had not received notification. Therefore, she was not able to come to open book or Board of Review. She realized the change when she received her real estate tax bill. Dean Peters felt this could be categorized as a palpable error on the Assessor’s part. The Town will not be able to re-coop the money from the various districts as the amount is under $500.

Palmer/Rasch motion to refund Julie VonBergen $216.78 for the tax parcel ILGT – 1K3. Palmer/Rasch rescinded their motion.

Palmer/Rasch motion to direct the Clerk/Treasurer to pay the balance of Tax Parcel ILGT – 1K3 before July 31 st sending a receipt to the homeowner. Carried without negative vote.

Rasch/Palmer motion to adjourn into closed session per Statute 19.85(1)(c). Roll call vote all Board in attendance (Weiss, Palmer, Rasch, White) yes.


White/Rasch motion to reconvene into open session. Carried. 6:50 pm.

Chairman Weiss asked, because of time, to go to 2015 financial review. Hwy. Superintendent Dan Pitt joined the meeting, Fire Chief Jason Smith also. Highway was over budget on highway repairs, but took it off of work on building. Board discussed managing the budget with Pitt.

White/Palmer motion to adjourn. Carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:00 pm.
