Pending Business

            Town Hall Well Update-   Tice gave an update.  The well has been drilled and is cased 220 feet deep with a total depth of 310 feet.  Everything is working correctly, we just need to flush the water through the system to get it cleared out. 


            Property Management Update-   Tice reported there is not an update right now.  The building at Moore’s machine shop on Highway 42/57, has been torn down and cleaned up. 


            Meeting Schedule 2018-   Haen made a suggestion that we tentatively schedule the December meeting, and finalize when we know Sevastopol’s concert schedule. 


            LRIP/TRIP Application Update-Wait met on December 14th for the LRIP/TRIP application.  Total funding to Door County was $108,000, 9 municipalities applied, and 7 were considered.  Sevastopol will be receiving $20,000 to repair Nelson Lane.


            Updated Committee Appointments-   Woelfel updated the committee appointments and added Wait to the Costal Byways Council.   Tice would Like to see the Sturgeon Bay Visitors Center added to the list of appointments. We will bring these items back next month.


New Business

            Don and Judy Maass Retirement- Woelfel congratulated Don and Judy Maass on their retirement.  Don and Judy have been our maintenance and cleaning people at the town hall for 8 years now and always have done a fantastic job.  Judy Maass then introduced Stacie Denil, who will taking over the job of cleaning and maintenance at the town hall.


            Clerk/Treasurer – Contract Renewal-   Woelfel spoke about the contract renewal for Clerk/Treasurer, Amy Flok.  We will be updating the schedule to reflect being open on Tuesday mornings.  The contract was signed by the board at the end of the meeting.


            SafeBuilt Contract – Auto Renewal 1/31/2018-   The Town of Sevastopol’s contract with SafeBuilt will auto renew on January 31, 2018.


            Snow Plowing/Pretreating designated priority areas.  Woelfel reported that he spoke with Thad Ash from the Door County Highway Department. The only “priority” areas are Whitefish Bay Road, between Highway 42 and 57 and Clark Lake Road between Highway 42 and 57.  Dunn Road is also sometimes a priority because of the hill.  The County plows the state roads, then the county roads and then the town roads.  There was a suggestion from a resident that we pretreat the roads with a salt solution.  Pretreating would prevent the snow from packing down giving the county more time to get out and clear.  Right now the County plows when we receive 2 inches of snow.  Gwenn Graboyes would like South Lake Road plowed more often than what it has been.



            Resolution No. 06-2017 TB “Appointment of Election Officials”  Motion by Woelfel and second by Wait to approve Resolution No. 06-2017 TB “Appointment of Election Officials” per the list attached for the term 2018-2019.  Motion carried.
