                                            Special Board Meeting
                                                May 28, 2009

The meeting was called to order by Jim Volbrecht, Chairperson, at 6:30 PM. In attendance: Supervisor
Debbie Smith, Supervisor Jeff Whyte, Supervisor Chuck Zabrowski, Supervisor Toby Myers, Treasurer
Larry Gibson, and Clerk Polly Jensen. See attached list of others present

Jim Volbrecht stated the fire committee recommended a post frame on concrete.

The board discussed what they had learned about the advantages and disadvantages of a post frame
building.
Jim feel the town is only getting ½ the benefit with the above recommendation. With the posts in the ground
it will increase the wind resistance and places the building weight on the ground. The town will also save
$7700 in concrete and time of construction will decrease.
Don Hess from Midwest was present to answer question on the post treatment process.
Jeff Whyte talked to the owners of the building on Truax and all were happy with their post frame buildings.
Chuck Zabrowski is concerned that a post in the ground will be ok for 40-50 years. Don Hess says yes the
post will be ok
Toby Myers talked to builder of the Cornell fire station and he recommends a ladder frame but if the town
decides to go with a post frame he would place the post in the ground and tie the post into the concrete.
Ken Kruschke is convinced the posts won’t rot or contaminate the ground water. If the building is sitting on
a slab of concrete it is all floating as one.
Deb Smith was in favor of the post frame from the start, 1 ½ years ago. Deb is concerned with financial
responsiblility the board has to the town for the cost of the station. She believes this is the best building for
the money we have.
Jim Volbrecht called Jonathan Stone at the Fairchild fire station. Their station is a post frame in the ground
and was built 12 years ago. They have not sheathings and used interlocking fastners.
Jim Volbrecht made a motion to build the fire station using the post frame construction with the posts in the
ground and to rescind the ladder frame resolution approved earlier. Jeff Whyte seconded the motion.
