Member present:  Chairman Joe Thome, Supervisors John Abler, Bill Gius, Jim Rosenthal II and Tim Simon.  Also present:  Clerk Kristin Marcoe, Treasurer Kathy Diederich and Road Maintenance Manager Randy Rieder. 

Call to order and Pledge of Allegiance:
Chairman Thome called the meeting to order at 7:00pm.  The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.
Approval of Meeting Minutes:
Motioned by Jim Rosenthal II, second by John Abler to correct the wording regarding the financial/town bills section to note Bill Gius abstained from the vote and to approve the minutes of the August 2, 2018 Monthly Board Meeting.  Motion carried (5-0).


Park & Rec. Advisory Council:  John Abler stated the disc golf course is experiencing a slight delay due damaged equipment received.  Trees that were down in the park have been cleaned up and a culvert was put in place by Randy Rieder.  

Road Department Managers Report:  Randy Rieder informed the Board about two driveway culverts in the town with issues.  One culver is not large enough (12” current diameter, minimum requirement is 15”) and the second culver; the water is not moving through properly. 

Also, owners of a duplex on Spring Street inquired about extending their culvert.  After discussing the details of the property, the Town Board members allowed an extension of no more than 12’ on each side of the culvert.  Remaining duplex residents on Spring Street will need to come in front of the board if they wish to extend their culvert. 

Northeast Asphalt supplied Randy with a quote for the patch work and fix the dips on Silica Road.  Jim Rosenthal II motioned to accept the proposal, second by Chairman Thome.  Motion carried (5-0). 

Review Financial Reports:
The financial reports were presented by Treasurer Kathy Diederich.  There is adequate cash to pay the August 2018 invoices.   Revenues received: the August tax settlement, penalties for non-compliant business’ and cable fees.  Accounts payables are larger than normal due to election costs and road work invoices. 
Approval of Town Bills:

Bulky Waste Letter to Residents:  Clerk Marcoe drafted a letter regarding the upcoming bulky waste pickup.  The letter states what items are acceptable and not acceptable along with when and where items are to be placed.  The letter will be mailed to all Town of Taycheedah residents the third week of September 2018.
  3. Treasurer Bond: The Legislature changed the requirements for tax collection bonding.  Act 52, Tax Collection bonds must be in the amount no less than the amount of state and county taxes apportioned to the municipality.  Treasurer Kathy Diederich recommended to keep the bond in the amount of $250,000.00.  Motioned by Chairman Thome, second by Jim Rosenthal II to renew the bond.  Motion carried (5-0).
