Special Town Electors Mtg June 24, 2014

JUNE 24, 2014


The Special Town Meeting of Electors was called to order by Chairman Hull at 6:30 p.m. pursuant to WI SS 60.12(1)(c) for the approval or denial to spend up to $40,000.00 towards the purchase or building of a satellite office with 5 voting elector attendees.

Chairman Hull updated Town Electors of discussions at 6 Town Board meetings regarding jointly purchasing property for the Oconto County Northern Satellite Office instead of paying rent; discussed locations previously looked at and offers made; need Town Elector opinion on decision.

General concerns addressed included:

–          David Wirth contacted Jody Sampson regarding his property in Business Park; could purchase for $35,000 and build garage/poll building to meet needs of Sherriff’s Dept

–          Question if this was a double lot

–          Question if Oconto County Zoning holds meetings/hearings at the satellite office

–          Question if citizens have to recommend to 6 Town Board for them to look at Mountain location, which would cost ½ the price

–          Citizen comments that Oconto County Zoning (and any other agency that would use Satellite office) should look at Jody Sampson’s building to see if it would meet their needs

–          Question if ramp at Jody Sampson’s location would meet ADA accessibility codes

–          Comments would like to have Satellite office closer to center of Northern 1/3 of county; they believe that people from Suring/Maple Valley north all use the Satellite office because they know Bill Bartz
