No person will be allowed to appear before the Board of Review, to testify to the Board by telephone, or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the assessor to view the property.

After the first meeting of the Board of Review and before the Board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the Board of Review may contact or provide information to a member of the Board about the person’s objection, except at a session of the Board.

The Board of Review may not hear an objection to the amount or valuation of property unless, at least 48 hours before the Board’s first scheduled meeting, the objector provides to the Board’s Clerk written or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of a written objection, the Board shall waive the requirement during the first two hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting, and the Board may waive the requirement up to the end of the fifth day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than five days with proof of extraordinary circumstances for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and failure to appear before the Board of Review during the first two hours of the first scheduled meeting.

Objections to the amount or valuation of property shall first be made in writing and filed with the Clerk of the Board of Review within the first two hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting, except that, upon evidence of extraordinary circumstances, the Board may waive that requirement up to the end of the fifith day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than five days.  The Board may require objections to the amount or valuation of property to be submitted on forms approved by the Department of Revenue, and the Board shall require that any forms include stated valuations of the property in question.  Persons who own land and improvements to that land may object to the aggregate valuation of that land and improvements to that land, but no person who owns land and improvements to that land may object only to the valuation of that land or only to the valuation of improvements to that land.  No person may be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless the written objection has been filed and that person in good faith presented evidence to the Board in support of the objections and made full disclosure before the Board, under oath, of all of that person’s property liable to assessment in the district and the value of that property.  The requirement that objections be in writing may be waived by express action of the Board.

When appearing before the Board of Review, the objecting person shall specify in writing the peron’s estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.

No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone, or object to a valuation if that valuation was made by the assessor or the objector using the income method of valuation, unless the person supplies the assessor with all the information about income and expenses, as specified in the assessor’s manual under s.73.03(2a), Wis. Stats., that the assessor requests.  The Town of Emmet has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph that provides exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their officer or by order of a court.  The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under s.19.35(1), Wis. Stats.

The Board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the Board a letter from a physician, surgeon, or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability.  No other persons may testify by telephone unless the Board, in its discretion, has determined to grant a property owner’s or their representative’s request to testify under oath by telephone or written statement.

No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone, or contest the amount of an assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the Board, or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed under s.70.47(3)(a), Wis. Stats., that person provides to the Clerk of the Board of Review notice as to whether the person will ask for the removal of a member of the Board of Review and, if so, which member, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of time the hearing will take.

Budget Hearing, Special Town Elector Meeting, and Regular Town Board Meeting Minutes

Held at Town of Emmet Garage

135103 Halder Drive, Mosinee, WI 54455

November 14, 2023 at 7:00 PM

 

 

Public Hearing on Proposed 2024 Budget

 

The public hearing on the proposed 2024 budget and levy was called to order by Chairman Meldon Maguire at 7:01 pm.  All Town Board members were present.  Town residents present were Donald & Shirley Dahlke; Diane & Duane Knetter; Doug & Sue Diethert; Rob, Kelly, & Ethan Clint; Frank Feehrer; and Wayne King.  The Clerk went through the budget line by line and noted the major changes from 2023.  The shared revenue has increased and the additional debt payment is proposed for the levy which would bring the levy to $200,878.00.  Several of the Town residents present were very vocal in their opposition to the levy increase.  After much discussion, a motion by Lisa Baur, second by Wayne King to adjourn the public hearing.  Motion carried.

 

Special Town Elector Meeting

 

Chairman Maguire called the Special Town Elector Meeting to order.  In view of the opposition of Town residents present to the proposed levy increase, the following options were presented.  The Clerk informed the audience that if another budget hearing and Town elector meeting would be necessary, a 15 to 20-day posting would be needed and that would delay the tax bill printing until late in December.  If that occurred, tax bills would most likely not arrive in time for taxpayers to pay their 2023 taxes by December 31, 2023, as many Town residents do.  After discussion, it was decided to remove the additional $54,391.00 from the proposed levy.  If this proposal passes, the levy will remain nearly the same as in 2023.  Motion by Sue Diethert, second by Donald Dahlke to amend the proposed budget to authorize the removal of the additional $54,391.00 from the levy.  The motion passed, but it was not unanimous.  The Clerk informed the audience that because of this action, the payment in March 2024 for the loan at the BCPL will require taking the $54,391.00 out of the operating budget.  A motion by Rob Clint, second by Shirley Dahlke to adjourn the Special Town Elector meeting.  Motion carried.

 

Regular Monthly Town Board Meeting

 

Chairman Maguire called the Regular Monthly Town Board Meeting to order.  All Town Board Members were present.  Also present were the Town of Emmet residents listed above and Town of Bergen Chairman Ed Rucinski.

Motion by Lisa Baur, second by Tyler Dahlke to approve the printed minutes of the October 10, 2023 meeting.  Motion carried. 

Treasurer Mike Maguire presented the financial report for November 2023.  There were no major expenditures.  The Town of Emmet was reimbursed from Marathon County for the Eau Pleine Park Road project ($154,222.72).  Motion by Baur, second by Dahlke to approve the treasurer’s report.  Motion carried.

Motion by Dahlke, second by Baur to approve payment of bills with check numbers 18485 through 18502, wages, and payments made electronically.  Motion carried. 

Clerk’s Report:

·         One building permit was issued Allan Myszka – shed.

·         Marathon County is proposing changes to the general code of ordinances, chapter 15- private sewage systems, chapter 21 – non-metallic mining code, and chapter 22 – shoreland, wetland, flood plain code.   As part of the process, Marathon County CPC requests input from Town officials and residents regarding suggested changes. 

Motion by Dahlke, second by Baur to approve the amended levy and budget as adopted at the Town Elector meeting.  Motion carried.

Motion by Dahlke, second by Baur to approve renewing the agreement with the Town of Green Valley for gravel/salt purchase from the Town of Emmet.  Motion carried.

Chairman/Supervisor Reports:

·         The Chairman will contact for brush cutting along Town roads for overhanging branches and other larger brush the Town brush cutter cannot reach.

·         The wiring in the Town Hall needs to be upgraded.  Hauke Electric will be contacted.

·         The use of ARPA money for repair of the Town Hall entrance was discussed.  Several quotes will need to be obtained and a design project will be needed.

Town Board Meeting Minutes

 

 

May 9, 2023

 

Regular Town Board Meeting

 

The regular monthly Town Board Meeting of the Town of Emmet was called to order on the above date by Chairman Meldon Maguire at 7:01 pm.  The meeting was held in the Halder Community Hall, 135125 Halder Drive, Mosinee, WI.  Present were Town Board members Meldon Maguire, Lisa Baur, Tyler Dahlke, Mike Maguire, and Jerry Fitzgerald.  Also present were Will Litzer, Rob Clint, Sue Dietert, Frank Feehrer, Jamie Cheyka-Maguire, Jacon Maguire, and Shandra Skalecke.

Motion by Lisa Baur, second by Tyler Dahlke to approve the printed minutes of the April 2023 meeting.  Motion carried. 

Treasurer Mike Maguire presented the financial report for May 2023.  Motion by Dahlke, second by Baur to approve treasurer’s report.  Motion carried.

Motion by Baur, second by Dahlke to approve payment of bills with check numbers 18362 through 18382, wages, and payments made electronically.  Motion carried.

Because the WPS bill was not in at the time of the meeting, motion by Baur, second by Tyler to authorize Treasurer Maguire to pay the bill upon arrival.  Motion carried.

Clerk’s Report:

·         Two building permits were issued since the last meeting.  Mel & Sonia Cook – window replacement in residence; and Tyler Pankratz – new house and attached garage.

·         The Clerk will apply to the State Election Commission for a sub-grant for $600.  This money will be used to create a WI.gov email and website.

Motion by Baur, second by Dahlke to approve beer permits for the summer softball season for the Halder Community Club.  Motion carried.

Motion by Dahlke, second by Baur to designate the ATC payment for the highway budget.  Motion carried.

Town of Emmet resident, Will Litzer, outlined to the Board a problem involving line fences and cattle getting onto his land.  The Board explained that this is not a Town Board issue and the matter should be settled between the two parties involved.  After the fence is completed, Board supervisors could inspect the fence to make sure it is properly built.

Motion by Baur, second by Dahlke to appoint Kevin Kraft to fill the vacancy on the Town of Emmet Planning Commission.  Motion carried.

Chairman/Supervisor Reports:

·         The Town purchased several loads of ground up blacktop from American Asphalt and applied it to Skyview Road from State Road 153 to the gravel pit entrance.  This material was readily available because American Asphalt was repaving State Road 153.

·         The Board had a lengthy discussion on the sale of Town-owned property.  As this 40-acre site was where the former Town dump was located, ground testing will be required before any sale of this property.  The REI company was mentioned for possibly doing the testing.  Board members will make contacts to get the best price for this testing.  There will be an update the next Board meeting.

·         An ordinance for wind turbines was discussed.  Chairman Maguire mentioned that any new ordinances would need to override the exemption in our present ordinance for all power-related enplacements.  Opinions from Town Association attorneys are that most local ordinances that supersede the regulation authority of the public service commission would not be enforceable.  Board members will contact attorneys, no formal Board action taken at this meeting.

·         Gravel and culvert replacements will be formalized at the next meeting.

·         A lengthy discussion concerning issuance of liquor licenses.  The Town Board cannot deny a liquor license even if the holder does not open for business.  The Town Board will renew liquor licenses at the June meeting.

Public Comments:

·         A few Town residents at the meeting were concerned about the wind turbines.  It was explained that local ordinances that supersede the PSC authority are not going to be enforceable. 

Motion by Dahlke, second by Baur to set the time and date for the next meeting on June 13, 2023 at 7:00 pm in the Halder Community Hall.  Motion carried.

Motion by Baur, second by Dahlke to adjourn.  Motion carried.  Time:  9:33 P.M.

No person will be allowed to appear before the Board of Review, to testify to the Board by telephone, or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the assessor to view the property.

After the first meeting of the Board of Review and before the Board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the Board of Review may contact or provide information to a member of the Board about the person’s objection, except at a session of the Board.

The Board of Review may not hear an objection to the amount or valuation of property unless, at least 48 hours before the Board’s first scheduled meeting, the objector provides to the Board’s Clerk written or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of a written objection, the Board shall waive the requirement during the first two hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting, and the Board may waive the requirement up to the end of the fifth day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than five days with proof of extraordinary circumstances for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and failure to appear before the Board of Review during the first two hours of the first scheduled meeting.

Objections to the amount or valuation of property shall first be made in writing and filed with the Clerk of the Board of Review within the first two hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting, except that, upon evidence of extraordinary circumstances, the Board may waive that requirement up to the end of the fifith day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than five days.  The Board may require objections to the amount or valuation of property to be submitted on forms approved by the Department of Revenue, and the Board shall require that any forms include stated valuations of the property in question.  Persons who own land and improvements to that land may object to the aggregate valuation of that land and improvements to that land, but no person who owns land and improvements to that land may object only to the valuation of that land or only to the valuation of improvements to that land.  No person may be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless the written objection has been filed and that person in good faith presented evidence to the Board in support of the objections and made full disclosure before the Board, under oath, of all of that person’s property liable to assessment in the district and the value of that property.  The requirement that objections be in writing may be waived by express action of the Board.

When appearing before the Board of Review, the objecting person shall specify in writing the peron’s estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.

No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone, or object to a valuation if that valuation was made by the assessor or the objector using the income method of valuation, unless the person supplies the assessor with all the information about income and expenses, as specified in the assessor’s manual under s.73.03(2a), Wis. Stats., that the assessor requests.  The Town of Emmet has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph that provides exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their officer or by order of a court.  The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under s.19.35(1), Wis. Stats.

The Board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the Board a letter from a physician, surgeon, or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability.  No other persons may testify by telephone unless the Board, in its discretion, has determined to grant a property owner’s or their representative’s request to testify under oath by telephone or written statement.

No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone, or contest the amount of an assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the Board, or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed under s.70.47(3)(a), Wis. Stats., that person provides to the Clerk of the Board of Review notice as to whether the person will ask for the removal of a member of the Board of Review and, if so, which member, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of time the hearing will take.

The regular monthly Town Board Meeting of the Town of Emmet was called to order on the above date by Chairman Meldon Maguire at 7:00 pm.  The meeting was held in the Halder Community Hall, 135125 Halder Drive, Mosinee, WI.  Present were Town Board members Meldon Maguire, Rob Clint, Tyler Dahlke, Mike Maguire, and Jerry Fitzgerald.  Also present were Jim Maguire, Kevin Maguire, Jacob Langenhahn, Ben Nechuta, Bryan Michlig, Karl Kurtzweil, Adam & Jared from Mosinee Fire District, and Al McHugh.

Motion by Rob Clint, second by Tyler Dahlke to approve the printed minutes of the June 14, 2022 Town Board meeting.  Motion carried. 

Treasurer Mike Maguire presented the financial report for July 2022.  Motion by Dahlke, second by Clint to approve.  Motion carried.

Motion by Clint, second by Dahlke to approve payment of bills with check numbers 18080 through 18095, wages, and payments made electronically.  Motion carried.

Clerk’s Report:

·         The following building permits were issued – Jon Raatz – large shed and Brent Anderson – smaller storage shed.

·         The fall primary election will be on Tuesday, August 9.  Polls open 7:00 am – 8:00 pm.

·         Marathon County Eastern and Western Towns Association joint meeting will be Thursday, July 28, 2022 at Rib River Ballroom.

·         Doug Schoenfuss, Town of Emmet First Responder/Coordinator, has applied for a grant.  If received the grant would provide funds for equipment for the first responders.

·         The Clerk will prepare a proposal for garbage and recyclable pickup.  A special meeting will be scheduled to approve the proposal and forward to the various garbage companies.

County Board Supervisor Jacob Langenhahn, Town of Emmet Ward 2, outlined the major issues that the County Board has been considering.  Mr. Langenhahn answered several questions from the Board and audience.

Jim & Kevin Maguire, were present at the meeting in regard to procedures that took place in 1993 regarding possible road widening and culvert replacements.  The Clerk read extensive minutes from those proceedings, and the result was that there was no written agreement with the Maguire Family regarding sale of right-of-way.  Consequently, the road remained a three-rod road and new culverts were installed at that time.  It was agreed that because this was many years ago and statutes of limitations have long expired on any possible transactions, the matter is closed.  The cattle pass located on Big Eau Pleine Park Road will be replaced with a smaller culvert and the old culvert is the property of the Maguire family.

Motion by Clint, second by Dahlke to approve operator’s license for Savannah Furcho.  Motion carried.

Motion by Dahlke, second by Clint to authorize the ATC payment for highway projects.  Motion carried.

Chairman and Supervisors’ Report:

·         Three culverts on the Eau Pleine Park Road were replaced today (July 12).  A larger culvert will be installed when the contractor is available.

·         The large culvert located on Moon Road will also be replaced this year (2022).  An order will be placed with the Town’s vendor.

Adam Grahn, Fire Chief of the Mosinee Fire District, and Jared were on hand to explain the proposal on EMS license downgrade.  This is necessary because of the difficulty of staffing advanced level EMS providers.  This is not a permanent downgrade.  As soon as staffing levels permit, the Mosinee Fire District will be upgrading back to an AEMT level surface.

Public Comments:  - Town Resident, Al McHugh.

Motion by Dahlke, second by Clint to set the next meeting date for Tuesday, August 9, 2022 at 6:00 PM at the Town of Emmet Town Garage.  Motion carried.  Change due to election on August 9.

Motion by Clint, second by Dahlke to adjourn.  Motion carried.  Time:  8:42 P.M.
