Village of Bay City

GENERAL MEETING, December 8, 2021

PRESENT: Roger Spindler, Norman Baker, Jon Ebensperger, Terry Johnson, Jerry McConnell, Kimberly Lunda, and Chris Zenner.


MOTION to Accept November 10, 2021 Budget Prep and Regular Board Meeting Minutes by Johnson/Ebensperger, motion carried.

PUBLIC WORKS Chris reported that Backwoods electric did the meter change out in the campground. So now the upper campground will only have one meter to read instead of 12. This will save the Village a substantial amount of money and extra fees that have been charged. This will alleviate the extra charges for each meter on our billing. The salt sander was repaired and is in good operating order now. The board did vote on what we should charge for the salt sanding of various places and for the Isabelle Township it was increased by $10 per time. The LRIP funding meeting is scheduled for the next day and Roger and Chris will be attending that meeting and report back to the board at the next meeting on how the meeting went. The docking materials that Red Wing was getting rid of has been picked up and is being stored at the tree sit. A hot water heater was installed for the bathrooms and new faucets were installed as well.

MOTION to increase the price of salt sanding per time to a minimum of $60 by Baker/Ebensperger, motion carried.

DISCUSSION on the easement requested by Barb and Duane Johnson for access to their driveway over Village Property. The board said that they currently have access and would approve the easement if it was written up by an attorney and brought before them again. It will have to be put in the paper before the board meeting so all residents have a time to review it before the meeting and if any objection are made the board can consider those. The discussion was tabled until the paperwork is received, and the meeting can be conducted.

MOTION to set the Caucus date for January 5th by Ebensperger/Baker, motion carried. When the board set the date then Jim Turvaville said that we normally just have the Caucus before a board meeting, Clerk Lunda thought that the date that the candidates had to be reported to the State was the 12th, but in checking after the meeting the date was actually the 21st so the board then decided to have the meeting at 6:00pm before the January 12th board meeting.

DISCUSSION on the fee schedule, the board realized that building permits were rather complicated and that they would just set the fee schedule for what our new Inspector charges per different permit. All permits will be per All Croix Inspections and anything that did not pertain to permits would stay the same.

MOTION to set the fee schedule for building permits according to All Croix Inspection Service and any fees that were not building permit related would remain the same by Johnson/McConnell, motion carried.

MOTION to Appoint Poll Workers Jan Spindler, Donna Shilts, Dalton Huppert, Cheryl Enevold and Yelonne Marklevits by Baker/Johnson, motion carried.

MOTION to Appoint Chief Inspector Sue Rusch Harriman by Ebensperger/McConnell, motion carried.

MOTION to approve Barb Johnson to the Planning Commission by Ebensperger/Baker, motion carried

MOTION to approve Stacy McConnell to the Zoning Board of Appeals by Ebensperger/Baker, motion carried

The board members reminded the clerk that at the next board meeting we need to have Reducing the Plan Commission from 7 to 5 members, clerk noted that this will be added to the agenda for January.

MOTION to move forward with updating the Ordinances 107 and 107-1 the snow ordinance by Ebensperger/McConnell, motion carried.

MOTION to pay the bills by Ebensperger/Johnson, motion carried.
