          d. Supervisors. Mr. Gehring – Held a Public Works meeting before the
              Town Board meeting. The snowplowing bill for doing the smaller jobs is
              running not to far behind the charges for doing the highways. There will
              be a County Smart Growth meeting on January 26th. On the 26th of
              February in Burlington there will be a meeting on farmland preservation.
              Ms. Nolan – Nothing. Mr. Stoll – The Fire Department responded to a
              barn fire at the Buxton farm. The barn was a total loss as well as the hay
              and some livestock. The DNR has determined that both projects for the
              Nippersink Bowl water problem will need permits. We should get cost
              estimates for both projects before applying for any permits. The Fire
              Department is going to be sponsoring Community Emergency Response
              Team (CERT) training on March 6th, 7th and 8th. Mr. Mangold – We
              should be receiving our money very soon from Country Thunder. The
              website is back up and up to date. Received a call from Jim Krueser,
              County Executive in regard to snowplowing. This will not be the last year
              for the county to do our snowplowing. He will be sending a letter
              confirming the conversation. Mr. Gehring stated it was discussed at the
              Public Works; it would be more economical to have the county do the
              plowing if they desire.
          e. Chairperson. The Cub Scout Troup has been in contact with him in regard
              to holding a 5K run starting at Bassett Park. This request was forwarded

f. PDR fund allocation. Mr. Gehring wants to straighten out why the money
   is still in the general fund that should have been placed in the PDR fund.

           never saw the bid; never saw any specs or where it will be installed.
           Discussion followed. A motion by Mangold/Stoll that we accept the bid
           by the Werner Company and to install this guardrail and the installation be
           done as soon as weather conditions permit for $13,400.00. The motion
           was carried. Mr. Gehring and Ms. Nolan apposed.
